And now we go for Small…with Gotye and Poets on a Page!

It’s such a small thing to ask
that we should meet at last
go to the sea-shore and walk
visit at a mall or library and talk

It’s such a small thing to want
a man instead of an “enfant”
have an equal…look into his eyes
and not play all the silly lover’s lies

It’s such a small thing to see
the woman who was to be me.
turn the page of the photo book
I look at her that I then forsook

It’s such a small thing to dream
of chocolate eggs and cosmic cream
of faery queens and ancient kings
my head is always full of things…

Ah friend, it’s all the small things in life
you can enjoy  freely without stress or strife…
it’s when you want to go beyond essentials
that the powers that be offer differentials


I’m here again with Poets on a Page you guessed it today the prompt is “SMALL”  …so we’ve  COLD, HOT, BIG and now SMALL….Tomorrow is the big day…Oh…I just had to share Amy McGrath’s photo for the prompt…it is too cute:

spotsHave a great day and visit Poets on a Page…there is some interesting stuff going on there.  Remember, these were the ladies who during OctPoWriMo offered us so many prompts and forms…they’ve continued with mini-challenges to help us keep ourselves in shape.  It’s like when you want to run the New York Marathon…a little practice always helps 😉

Big: More Poetry Practice with Cold Play…

Today’s the big day…
Cold Play
warms up their instruments
we are hot on their scent
waiting for the moment
when the first notes begin…
The crowd
is big…no huge!
Everyone is pushing
trying to find
their ideal position…
It’s one big
for an elephant
dreams of Paradise…


From Poets on a Page: Poetry Prompt: Write a “BIG” poem. Big doesn’t have to mean lengthy, but it can. Or write about a BIG idea or something that is physically BIG. It’s your poem, write it your way!

Word Prompt: (you guessed it!) BIG:

(N.B. but the whole thing began with cold…which I missed….and there’s more: On Monday, I assured you that there was a “theme” for the week that would be made known on Friday. If you’re trying to guess what it is, today’s prompt might help. For the past two days, we’ve written about “cold” and “hot”. Today, I’d like us to think “BIG”….the plot thickens!  Cool!)
