If you are wondering what to do today because you have read all the poems being shared for Poetry Friday, what better way to extend the fun, than to to to Madness! Poetry and read 64 new poems created. Cast a few votes, or many votes to encourage all the poets who have submitted their creations (under duress!)
I will warn you, it is addicting...and the contest runs through May with new poems created weekly. You need to stay tuned to get the next round! Each poet has 36 hours to create a new piece using their given word. It is not a contest to be taken lightly - however, you kinda have to!
Today at 5 my bout with RJ Clarken closes. Our word was "suave"! It is so interesting to see how these words get woven into poems - and to see the strange theme or character occurrences in two battling poems.
I do hope you get on over there - not just for MY sake, but for all the poets and all the poems begging to be read!!
I'm going to put a poem here in just a minute...or two...here we go...done.
|An old Squiggle I drew...|
Run and sing!
Catch a frog!
Jump a log!
Such delight -
Grab a swing -
Raise toes to spring!
