Greetings from the middle of Winter to those in the middle of Summer... the longest night is over.
And the longest day! ( I like long daylight about as much as the Opera Ghost would!)
Indeed! At least I have some vacation time ahead so I can sleep through the dark hours.
Loved the challenge, Kerry!💞 I'll be back shortly to read and comment. Happy Weekend everyone!☕
What an amazing prompt Kerry.
Here in the far north the longest day is very very long... I have not seen darkness in weeks. Midsummer has passed...
"Ours is not a caravan of despair." I love that line.Sour is not a raven of De's pear.I had to go with "raven"; the only anagram I see for "caravan" is "vaca ran." And a running cow is not a pretty poetic image. But maybe a bird that isn't sour, eating "De's pear," is a little better. :)I'm going to do that exercise we played with a while back, using that line.
Thank you for a great prompt Kerry!
Love the prompt! My writing is a bit dark these days, but it's therapeutic.
I've been struggling to make my blog layout do what I ask of it, so I'm up very late! Will have to try again tomorrow and save visiting till I've had a night's sleep... :-)
I know that I am late, perhaps too late, but here is my write.WHAT DOES MATTER AFTER ALLThe sun and the moonThe world outsideThe cosmos tooLet's sayWe pick a jacketWith the words on the back"I Really Don't Care Do You"The words are simpleNot hard to understandAbout what you askAnd I answerWhat does matter after allJune 24, 2018
Never too late for one of our prompts, Annell. Yours is very much on point.
A wonderful wonderful prompt. Love the Rumi. Thanks, Kerry. k.
I'm just back from visiting daughter and grandson on a very hot day - over three hours there and then back again! Also feeling warm from all the cuddles. :) I'll channel the joy into a micro poem as soon as my feet are back on the ground.
Had some fun reading on these. I went off the deep end. Deep six. It doesn't matter after that. ..
It's not a poem, but Annell and readers might want to read https://priscillaking.blogspot.com/2018/06/understanding-dont-care-jacket.html .
Much time and effort went into this post! Your feedback is appreciated.
