gone …
once again
but should you worry
those roads are like a siren
they are always tempting me
come away with us
once again
… gone

Crows and Hawks – Joseph Star – January 3, 2015

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAcrows
– flying high
over trees and snow
slowly the sun fades away
they own the winter skies
when spring returns –
another flies
– hawk

OctPoWriMo 2013 Day 6 Prompt – A reblog of sorts!

Ok…I don’t know how to reblog a post that comes from outside WordPress…but I do know how to ping back and copy and paste…

Today’s prompt is very interesting and I wanted to show you the post…here’s the prompt:

Tell me what gives you butterflies. Write for ten minutes writing down anything and everything that makes

you nervous. Choose one and write for ten more minutes describing all of the different feelings that happen in your body at the thought of doing that one thing. You can take it one step further and put it into a form of your choosing if you like.

Word Prompt: Butterflies

If you want to challenge yourself try this poetry type from Shadow Poetry: Joseph’s Star. This is an invented form that I am particularly fond of. During A to Z last April I was going through the different types on Shadow Poetry doing A to Z Poetry. For J day I chose this type and wrote a poem titled Grandpa Joe. One thing I did differently than they describe in how to do this form is I chose the same word to end each stanza. You can do it either way, theirs or mine.
