One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

Words Count With Mama Zen


Confession:  despite wracking my brain for the past two weeks, I have been unable to come up with a decent poetry prompt.

Whew!  I feel so much better, now!  I guess confession really is good for the soul . . . 

Now, it's your turn.  What do you have to confess today?  Unburden yourself . . . in 65 words or less.

Got to love that cheesy poster!

Oh, those wonderful days of staring at the screen and nothing wicked this way comes...

The image made me snort-giggle. ;-D

Yes, that illustration grabbed me too. Tempting as it was to expose all, my problem was narrowing down the topic to something not too vulnerable and not too trivial. I went for cute.

Thanks for a fun prompt! I wrote 3 poems, each under 65 words but together more than 65 words-I confess!
