A Word with Laurie
Thank you for taking the time to hop over to Imaginary Gardens with Real Toads during this busy season. I know it is precious to us all, so I will make this brief.
In keeping with the joy of the season, I’d like you to include the word ecstasy in your poem. As you can see, it has a multitude of meanings.
1. a state of being beyond reason and self-control; barchaic: swoon
2. a state of overwhelming emotion; especially: rapturous delight
3. trance; especially: a mystic or prophetic trance
4. often capitalized: a synthetic amphetamine analog C11H15NO2 used illicitly for its mood-enhancing and hallucinogenic properties —called also MDMA
One more thing. I challenge you to write the piece in five minutes or less.
Anyone can participate. All you have to do is write a piece with the word ECSTASY and post it on your blog. Then add it to Mr. Linky and leave a comment. Most importantly, visit others who have linked to this challenge. I can't wait to see everyone's contribution.
Blessings to all of you this joyous season. See you next year!

Thank you for participating. I hope everyone has a very blessed holiday!
Thanks Laurie. Just managed it within the 5 minutes.
Laurie, thank you for this stimulating prompt - it's perfect for the busy Friday before Christmas.
This was a breeze for me, Laurie. You must have been tuned into what I needed. Thank you!
Ho! Cool prompt!
I'll need 5 extra minutes for the translation Laurie! <3
I wrote this maybe a week ago ... probably within 5 mins, I can't remember ... it was all I could do to get all my *ahem* needs out on paper :)
Hope you guys enjoy!
Great prompt! Can't wait to see what direction everyone else took it in...mine ended up short & sweet.
I was wrapping a gift and then added my thoughts to this prompt! Thanks Laurie, I really enjoyed it~
Thanks for the fun prompt. It inspired one of the haiku included in this haiku quartet.
Giving it a try tonight...very tired so I will do my responding tomorrow. Hope all who celebrate have a Merry Christmas.
Crazy week... but who can resist a prompt like this?...and its only 5 min...plus all the time you'll use up reading everyone else's;))
this was kinda fun
Thanks Laurie. Hope you and all players have a happy holiday and prosperous 2012.
Time zones can put me all behind, let alone Christmas! The two together, mean I have no hope of being on time... LOL
I have enjoyed writing mine ... thanks. Merry christmas to all.
