Short But Sweet…I Hope

Short But Sweet…I Hope

Poetry Prompt Day 20: Let’s talk about love, baby. I didn’t do the poetic form, the Loop poem. I’ll give that a try another day.  And, today’s poem is rather short but I hope it’s as strong as I felt when I wrote it. I did try to make it longer but every stanza I …

Dear Despair, Here’s A Hug

Dear Despair, Here’s A Hug

I had a full weekend so I have been catching up with the poetry prompts I missed while I was busy. So, if you signed up for email notifications/posts you will be/have received three separate email posts. I apologize for spamming your inbox. But I’m all caught up and hopefully will not be doing that …

The Most Dangerous Thing About Kids

The Most Dangerous Thing About Kids

Day 18 poetry prompt: Today’s prompt we’re going to add a little mystery to our lives. Look around you, whether it’s a physical object or people in general in your life. Chose something or someone and give them a double life.   I decided to have a little Halloween fun with this prompt. Although, with …

When A Joke Becomes A Serious Thing

When A Joke Becomes A Serious Thing

I’m not even going to try and explain today’s poetry prompt. Click the link and go read about it. All I can say is Billy Collins has a wicked sense of humor, and yes, I did the prompt. Well, except for the subject but I’m not sure there is a subject. Instead, we had to …

What Would You Do?

What Would You Do?

Today’s poetry prompt is to write about conquering the world. What if you had no boundaries, nothing counted, and you could do anything you want. Basically, pretend you are Bill Murray reliving Groundhog Day for one day. What would you do? There is only one thing I would do. I would spend one more day with …

For Pete’s Sake…

For Pete’s Sake…

Apologies. Yesterday, I was unable to submit anything for the OctPoWriMo prompt because I ended up having to wear an eye patch on an eye which left my other eye for me to see with…and I am apparently blind as a bat with little depth perception in that eye. I think what may have happened …

Head, Meet Desk…

Head, Meet Desk…

Holy son of a motherless goat! No, oh heck no. I am NOT doing this prompt again. I had to write an Abecedarian (ABC Darian) poem this April past, and it was not my favorite thing to write. Hmph. Okay. You know what? I’ll put up the one I wrote in April and I’ll think …

Getting Through The Small Days

Getting Through The Small Days

Dear Tamara, If I could sing about a time when I experienced the kind of success I think you are talking about in today’s poetry prompt, I would. But I don’t feel much like singing today. Instead, I am going to simply celebrate the fact that I got through this small day by posting today’s …

Explore Your Wild Side

Explore Your Wild Side

I don’t know about y’all, but I’m having a fairly decent day. I took the younger boys to the park while my second oldest is at a band competition, and in a few hours my neighbors are throwing a party and they’ve invited us. The kids get to play while the adults have wine and …

It’s Elemental, My Dear Sherlock

It’s Elemental, My Dear Sherlock

I have no excuses for posting late today. I procrastinated quite deliberately. I’ve sort of had the doldrums the past few days and I managed to work myself out of them by getting out of the house, away from the kids, and going to go see The Martian. (Go see that, it’s good. One of …
