starting letters

 

have those nasty emotions taken reign
starting to doubt, feeling a bit inane

dreamt I was part of a travelling circus
in the base of a small cycle velodrome

people were tossing me letters
twice the size of scrabble ones

from those letters I had to compose
a message, warm and hopeful prose

so send some random letters
seven to fourteen at most

then become the focus and link
of a message to make you think

regulars will be given priority
will spread love to the majority

this morning’s sunrise had dramatic colours, now it’s a grey cloudy sky!

    • BE HOPEFUL for Sadje

      Brave Sadje posts 5-6 times per day
      Ever careful to share those doing prompts

      Her kindness and determination radiate
      Out to everyone she can touch!
      Prepared to read and always comment
      Endurance her middle name
      Feel blessed I met her on wordpress
      Utilizes every minute of her day
      Love shines forth to bless us all!

      will post this in the comments for now and then maybe in a post as they accumulate, thanks 🙂

    • FAIRYLAND for Kritika

      Fantasy arouses young Kritika
      As she likes a bit of erotica
      I’ve found she has a heart of gold
      Reliable and kind comments
      Yes she is a real gem
      Love raidates from her posts
      As she writes with heart on sleeve
      Nothing fazes her as she explores
      Deep into life’s secret yearnings

    • GRATITUDE for Mich

      Generous kind and funny
      Romantic and erotic
      Always injects humour
      That’s coz she’s got style
      Idolises her four daughters
      They are apples of her eye
      Uniquely kind to the poor
      Devoted to her family
      Effervescence sparkles thru

    • BEAUTIFUL for Rabirius

      Blended photos
      Eloquently transposed
      Artistic creations
      Utilizing subtlety
      To make social comment
      It makes me think
      Free of expectation
      Under no obligation
      Loosens my rigidity

      • I have found a nice Poem on RESPONSIBILITY for you my lovely friend, Kate.
        RESPONSIBILITY IS THE KEY
        THAT IS FOUND IN OUR LOVELY FRIEND KATE
        K THAT STANDS FOR KINDNESS TOWARDS EVERY BEING AND THAT CAN BE SEEN FROM HER TRUTHFUL POEMS
        A THAT STANDS FOR AWARENESS
        BEAUTIFULLY ENCASED IN EVERY POST OF HERS WHERE SHE MAKES US AWARE OF OUR WORLD WITH QUALITIES OF GOOD AND BAD
        T THAT STANDS FOR HER TENDER NATURE TOWARDS BEAUTIFUL NATURE THAT SHE SO BEAUTIFULLY PORTRAYS IN HER PICTURES AND THE TENDER CARE SHE NURTURES TOWARDS ALL HER FRIENDS
        E THAT STANDS FOR EMPATHY. SHE EMPATHIZES WITH ONE AND ALL AND IT CAN BE SEEN IN HER SPIRITUAL SELF TOO.
        KATE YOU ARE THE MOST RESPONSIBLE AND BEAUTIFUL FRIEND WE BLOGGERS CAN HAVE. KEEP ALL OF US INSPIRED WITH YOUR POEMS WE LOVE THEM. I hope you will like my prompt poem dear Kate. Much love and light.

    • SPLENDID for Kamal
      Stories and poems
      Pleasing with morals
      Love radiates out
      Eternally from her faith
      Now busy cooking
      Domestic chores
      Isolated from her career
      Dynamic and so kind!

  3. I wanted to pick ‘Flamenco’ since dancing is what I need right now, but then I thought you are taking responsibility and doing a great job to keep us hopeful together. So my word is TOGETHER! Not so random letters though 🙂 Oh I am excited! Thank you

    • TOGETHER for Ozlem

      Turkish is her language
      Ozlem likes to travel
      Getting close to nature
      Elevates her mood

      Even closer to frogs and birds
      Radiates warmth and love!
