Write a kimo, an Israeli form that tends to capture a moment (like a photograph in words), using three unrhymed lines with syllable count 10, 7, 6. (Cuyahoga County Public Library)

glistening in the sunlight…
exhaling their last breaths

My first poem for this Monday was written for the Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge, and can be found on my Quilted Poetry blog: River’s Crest.
Prompt: Write a nonet, a nine-line poem, with the first line containing nine syllables, the next eight, so on until the last line has one syllable. (Cuyahoga County Public Library)

into the mist

Prompt from Brewer at Writer’s Digest:
And today is actually a special day: Two for Tuesday! Pick one prompt or use both…your choice! (1) Write a worst case poem. What’s the worst that could happen? (2) Write a best case poem. Take the worst and reverse it!

deserts without breath
bright colors on the water
moonlight’s dance on silent waves

flying low and fast…they cry

Beautiful sight and sounds greeted me as I stepped into the back yard at late morning.
Getting ready for National/Global Poetry Writing Month 2019. This year, the theme for the poets I write with is “Bring Your Own Prompt”.
