Love in Ten Lines
Wow! Day 30 in the Slice of Life Challenge is upon us! One more day to go! And then it will be on to more challenges. A-to-Z is next and I'll be posting a poem a day with a picture each day of a sign. You will just have to check back and see on Wednesday. I'm not even sure what turn it will take.
And for more fun in April: on the 22nd, I will be guest hosting at Laura Shovan's Author Amok, and April 29th, I will be adding the next to last line on the Progressive Poem at Irene Latham's Live Your Poem. It's going to be a fun month!
Today's slice is a love poem for a poem...I love writing, so it seemed fitting at the end of this month, I would post a poem about writing poems. Is there any one else up for the challenge of writing a Love Poem using the guidelines below? Let me know and I'll make you an official nominee!
Gillena Cox has given a challenge to write a love poem of 10 lines using the word "love" in each line. Here is my Love Poem - a poem about loving poetry.
Write about love using only 10 lines.
Use “love” in every line.
Each line can only be 4 words long.
Nominate 10 or so others who are up for the challenge.
Let them know about the challenge.
Title the post, Love in Ten Lines
My 10 nominations are going out to: TBA
"this love of mine"
is a love complete;
this love of phrases
is a love replete
with love of meter
and love of rhymes,
a love of story,
a love of times,
love of pure senses;
this love, poetry, recompenses.
