Pensieve IS like a box of chocolates!
I couldn’t help writing a second post today and, gracious, it could NOT be more different than the first!
Poetry’s on my brain, and when I was surfing Recipe Round-ups, "opportunities" kept smacking me in the face.
Without further ado, I’m shifting from all things hair to waxing poetic.
The two opportunities are "15 Words or Less POEMS" and Poetry Friday (BIG thanks to Kim for explaining the two**).
Laura (15 Words) posts a picture each Thursday and readers respond with a poem inspired by the photograph–IN 15 WORDS OR LESS! (easy greasy, huh?). Poetry Friday (much like Fun Monday) has a different host each week (I’ve linked to the current hosts). Kim has combined the two, and
intensifies simplifies the "challenge" by only allowing herself 15 minutes to write a poem so she doesn’t get bogged down.
I took a little big longer because I wanted to write a 15-word poem AND allow myself a little latitude to express a thought more completely in a second.
Why don’t y’all join in NEXT week?
Quench the earth
(Can you tell the Tennessee Valley has been in a drought for months?)
I need to feel
That you’re present, please be real
Invade my spirit
Cleanse my heart
Living Water, renewal start.
Oh! I love them both!
I’m so glad you played along!
Isn’t it fun?
you braided the physical with the spiritual. Divine!
I think your poem is really good and it conveys the message perfectly. I’m no poet so I don’t think it’s any good me signing up for this but I will enjoy reading what others write.
Love your poem.
Did not know about poetry Friday! Love it! (Even though I’m a horrid poet. I love my prose.)
Ooooo….You’re good! I’m not sure I even know what poetry is. Is it like, a song with no music? Not sure I can do that.
Kim, thanks for helping me find them :).
Pamela, GREAT comment, weaving multiple posts into one thought ;).
Chris, from what I’ve read of you, you’d thrive in this element.
Heather, thanks, chicka. Sometimes your prose IS poetry! I’m a marginal poet, but I love writing them…go figure.
Carol, babydoll, I think you’d do just fine with this…more than fine :).
