thanks for hosting Kerry - and well, aren't you a poem as lovely as ... this inspiration?

fascinating little choice - happy micro poeming everyone ...

I have ignored the point of departure. I advise legal action against me. But I have written an 8 line triolet. <<example of redundancy.

Good Morning, Garden Dwellers! Thanks, Kerry, for the inspirational prompt! I came in under twelve lines! :)

Frank J. Tassone said...

Alas, I am as deserving as fireblossom to be subject to legal action. ;) I completely missed the point of departure.

Thanks for hosting today, Kerry. A Tree by Kilmer was the first poem besides Nursery Rhymes that I ever memorized, first grade I think. My picture I took this morning, without Picasa and using a screen print, it is rather course. I may change it as it is hard to read Snoopy's Change cartoon.

A very cool prompt. Yay! This was the first poem I loved, when I was eight.

I remember quoting this poem when I was six for some school play. I still remember it to this day. I think many of us are going to use the mea culpa excuse today for leaving a poem that doesn't fit the prompt. Perhaps if we read the prompt first instead of just dropping a poem? thank you Kerry for taking the time to give us a lovely prompt.

Back from vacation... I'm in denial as school starts Monday... ugh. I enjoyed this challenge.

I love this poem, Kerry - it's a good choice! I've been out all day, bouncing and rhyming at the library, drinking coffee with a friend and choosing new glasses, so I've just got round to writing a little poem. I'll see you all on the trail!

I wrote two poems for the challenge. I am struggling to write these days, and I go from dark to light. Thanks so much for the challenge Kerry.

Oh dear! I’ve gone off-script! So sorry 😐

Vivian Zems said...

I’m going to write another one that fits the prompt. Feel free to delete the first one, Kerry😀

I wouldn't dream of deleting links.. this is merely a starting block, not a place of detention!

Frank J. Tassone said...

Greetings again, fellow Garden Dwellers. I've posted a second one that more closely follows the prompt.

Fireblossom said...

So many links...that's encouraging to see! I am making my way around as best i can. I don't like to read too many consecutively...I get cross-eyed and don't know what I am reading after about 5 poems, so I visit, leave, come back.
