Poem of the Week

You Shall Go to the Ball

Violins strike up,
Couples move onto the floor,
Goose feet trip, tap, curl.
Decadence almost felt,
Chevrons indicate "this way please!"

This was a three word prompt given to me by Paula Harmon from the Facebook group Writers' Soapbox. The three words were chevron, goose, curl.

Poem of the Week - Last Week

New Me

From my cardboard being,
I earned my liberation.
Through my deliberation,
I created a concoction.
Through deliberate action,
I became a living being.

This was a three word prompt given to me by Kirsty Grant from the my Facebook page. The three words were concoction, liberation and cardboard.

Poem of the Week - 2 Weeks Ago

Liquid Irises

Eyes round and earnest,
Liquid irises draw me in,
A candid confession,
Has me helpless.

The quirk that is you,
Washes over my corners,
Smoothing any points,
With you, I am me.

This was a three word prompt given to me by Amelia Black from the Facebook group Writers' Soapbox. The three words were candid, liquid and quirk.
