OCTPOWRIMO – DAY 12 – STRONG octpowrimo2016c


Today is the 12th day of October Poetry Writing Month, and the prompt is ‘strong’.



The strong man superhero

The princess and the ghoul

This is the night for frightening

A night to play the fool

Their costumes fun or fanciful

Little beggars come to call

Tricks and treats are all in fun

Happy Halloween to them all

Today is the first day of National Haiku Writing Month. We are supposed to write a Haiku poem (to a prompt, or not) for every day this month.  You may find out more about this challenge by clicking below. Anyone can join in!

The prompt word is … Zap

I try to join in with Poets on the Page, whenever I can. It is a fun, ongoing challenge, with weekly prompts. Find out more about this, by clicking below:

The prompt words are Expanding consciousness, Divine Mystery, Flowing Energy.

The style of poem to try is the Harrisham Rhyme Poetry (consisting of a rhyme scheme of ABABAB, 6 lines, take the last letter of the first word of each line, making that letter the first letter of the next line, repeating until 6 lines are written)




Zap me with your energy

Pretend I am your star

Dance a song of synergy

Expend me from afar

Darling, no need for apology

Gratitude leaves no scar

Grant me this one wish

Zap me with your energy

I’m your only star

3 IN 1 CHALLENGE – January 4th


3 IN 1 CHALLENGE – January 4th

Today I’ve combined 3 different blog challenges into one poem. It did take awhile to figure out how to get all the requirements to work together.

The 3 pages can be found by clicking each one.


For Color Your World, the prompt color is Aquamarine

For Poets on the Page, we were asked to imagine if you were not yourself, to drop all pretenses, to be your authentic self

For Mindlovemiserysmenagerie, prompt # 92, is a Wordle, which is to take a list of given words, use 10 of them, to write a poem or story using these words. The words to choose from were… punitive, tepid, calendar, season, sad, arrhythmic, cursive, tomorrow, swallow, aquamarine, affirmation, pulchritude…

Thank you to the hosts of these three blog challenges, for keeping things fun and interesting 🙂



Who would I be, if not me anymore

Stripped of my being, right down to the core

I’ll open tomorrow with an arrhythmic swallow

Banish the sad, the tepid, and follow

For awhile, for a season, on the calendar year

An affirmation that I hold dear

With a flourish, a shout, a cursive flair

I’ll be the Ghost, I’ll still be there

Myself as myself, there are no lies

I am the Ghost with Aquamarine Eyes.
