A last hurray for the tenth #frapalymo

Can you believe it? May is over and with that #frapalymo. Even though I haven’t written a lot of poems last week and neither have read a lot I will miss it. But I have a lot to read up with many brilliant poets taking part in #frapalymo. Thanks @FrauPaulchen for one of my favourite poetry projects ever! Am looking forward to November 2016 and #frapalymo 11. Even though I might not take part or just translate the prompts because I am determined to take part in #NaNoWriMo. Just wait and see :-)!

But now: the last prompt for #frapalymo 10 in May 2016!

tadaa! we’ve nearly made it. the motto for @fraupaulchchen’s poetry month is: 30 days, 30 poems – no excuses because the original poetry month took part in november 2011. in may there is always one more. my feedback will come in the next few days right now i can only say: thank you, thank you, thank you!

the prompt for #frapalymo on may 31st is: “eleven” . if you think of the repdigit, write an elevenie, think of the game “elfer raus” or, or, or – i am looking forward to anything you are going to write about! 

…and the small print: please let me know via email or twitter if you take part. then I can post the link to your blog/poem on Twitter. or post the link in the comments under the daily prompt post on my blog. the hashtag for Twitter is #frapalymo, and I am @FrauPaulchen.”

Of course, my fellow English speaking poets and poetesses rather let me @Morgaine620 know or post the link here in the comments.

English #frapalymo #poem on 30may16

Ok, I cease the opportunity to write two more poems. One today and one tomorrow after I have taken a break for a week. Had to play around with my blogs a little :-). Remember: Today’s prompt asked us to write an acrostic about the number 10:

Tears from heaven

~

Even eagles stay in their

Nests

 

 

English #frapalymo #poetry prompt on 30may16

Ooops, so long and I haven’t written a poem 😦 but sometimes life throws changes at you and you have to roll with it. But what about today’s prompt?

you are unbelievable! the dynamic increases with the coming end of #frapalymo! i think we haven’t had that so far! please feel hearted and hugged for your wonderful texts and words! 

at every round lot in this poetry month we celebrated the number ten – at first with ten words, then with ten lines and now it should be in the center of attention for the last time (for we want to have as many possibilities as possible). 

the #frapalymo prompt for may 30th is: “write an achrostic with ten”. if you do not know what an achrostic is have a look here. and as the word ten is pretty short I am looking forward to many four line (the word for ten in German is zehn that is why it would be four lines but in english its only three) poems. 

…and the small print: please let me know via email or twitter if you take part. then I can post the link to your blog/poem on Twitter. or post the link in the comments under the daily prompt post on my blog. the hashtag for Twitter is #frapalymo, and I am @FrauPaulchen.”

English #frapalymo #poetry prompt on 29may16

Only 3 prompts left until May #frapalymo 2016 ends. But all good things come in threes :-):

the last three prompts of this tenth poetry month go to the fullest and celebrate writing, looking back, the main things and what might come… i am really happy that so many of you are taking part again but also so many taking part for the first time and I realise ~ and that is the great thing that we have lots of fun even though it still is a challenge. 

for tomorrow, we have the third and last ” like then prompt”. we had it for may 29th in 2011 and that is why the prompt for #frapalymo on may 29th is: “your words foreign places”* after a tweet from five years ago by @madamemad – who is still writing beautifully and moving like always. 

…and the small print: please let me know via email or twitter if you take part. then I can post the link to your blog/poem on Twitter. or post the link in the comments under the daily prompt post on my blog. the hashtag for Twitter is #frapalymo, and I am @FrauPaulchen.”

*please bear in mind that you do not need to use the exact words of the prompt for your poems. the prompt is supposed to make you think and verse. if you use the exact words please make sure you give credit to the author. thank you very much.

English #frapalymo #poetry prompt on 28may16

Normal, crazy or what? 😉

what is normal, right? that your texts aren’t normal but very beautiful is what you prove daily. and the texts about the crazy? or maybe moved around texts (the word for crazy in German can also mean “moved around” @FrauPaulchen uses a wordplay here that doesn’t work in English. sorry) i am curious. 

unsurprisingly: the fraplymo prompt for may 28th is: “crazy”.

…and the small print: please let me know via email or twitter if you take part. then I can post the link to your blog/poem on Twitter. or post the link in the comments under the daily prompt post on my blog. the hashtag for Twitter is #frapalymo, and I am @FrauPaulchen.”

English #frapalymo #poetry prompt on 27may16

Let’s get versing with @FrauPaulchen’s prompt from yesterday for today:

we have newly defined the impression of tightness  i think ~ thank you very much for such lovely and touching sardine tin macros…!  

we arrive at the last double prompt for this poetry month. the frapalymo prompt for may 27th is: „normal“, followed up by a “crazy” prompt for may 28th. is normal really so different to crazy? sometimes i doubt it, that is why i am curious to read your texts for both prompts. 

…and the small print: please let me know via email or twitter if you take part. then I can post the link to your blog/poem on Twitter. or post the link in the comments under the daily prompt post on my blog. the hashtag for Twitter is #frapalymo, and I am @FrauPaulchen.”

English #frapalymo #poetry prompt on 26may16

Yesterday was cinematic today will be claustrophobic 😉 :

it was big cinema today with our poetry month ~ i am still behind with putting links and tweeting but hopefully you bear with me. slowly we bring in all we have because the countdown has started a while ago. counting down we arrived at one hand! time for a macro picture to have a close look at the things around us again, anew, at last, afresh.

so #frapalymo prompt for may 26th is: “macro picture: in the sardine can” how cosy or claustrophobic do you see sardines? and how does it feel like? me? i often feel like that…

I’m translating this in a hurry, sorry:

i haven’t read all of today’s poems yet but i am already looking forward to reading all your “cut off” texts. it goes on not cut off at all but with pictures cranking out. 

#frapalymo prompt for may 25th is: “film title” use a film title in your text ~ either word for word or use it as an image. if you do not use the film title word for word please let us know which film you mean. guessing can be nice but I prefer clarity…. thank you. and now: get going!
