#158 of #365 A Prompt A Day For Bee ~ #frapalymo 6 ~ combine two proverbs

Oh, this one sounds like an interesting one:

” in my search for always new and different prompts, I am reading and saving a lot in the non-frapalymo months. of course, everything can and maybe a prompt ~ most often it only needs a “concentrated working with a thought” to get from it to a thousand others and in the end to words, language, text. by now I have a lot of books about writing and prompts and those are an everlasting well of ideas too. you see: for the next few years, #frapalymo is save (cough, cough, cough).

prompt for #frapalymo on November 6th comes from the book “raum zum schreiben/Room to Write: Daily Invitations to a Writer’s Life” by bonnie goldberg: combine two proverbs and write a poem with it”. where will combinations like every shoemaker’s dog always goes barefoot (combination of “every dog has it’s day” and “the shoemaker’s son always goes barefoot”) lead you to? on this page, you can find lots of proverbs for free combining. have fun and a good time with it. and: please feel free to tell which proverb combination has inspired you. (and yes I know we had this kind of prompt before but I do not think in this combination “two for one” ~ (unless I am very mistaken….)

and the small print: please tell me via mail or twitter, if you want to verse with me, that means I can tweet the link to your post. or post your poem or the link to your poem in the comment section under my poem on the according day. hashtag for me to recognise the tweet is #frapalymo (comment by translator: even though mainly in German English language poems are very welcome) and I am @FrauPaulchen.”
Of course, you can leave your poem or the link to it here in the comment section and I will tweet about it and tell Sophie.
Combination: Friends are Flowers that never fade & Many a little makes a mickle
Many friends are little flowers that never mickle or fade
many a boon
are here for
flowers and trinkets
that have
never done a
mickle to anyone
faded with pride
