This is another post from February 2013. I posted poetry prompts every week and wanted to try out different poetry forms. This one is quite interesting. Maybe it inspires you to try and write a decastich too 🙂 :
Not enough C so there we are at D: Decastich
There is not a lot of information about the Decastich. According to The Poets Garret it is a poem of 10 lines and you can do with it what you want. Rhyme or no rhyme, syllable pattern or no pattern….. you get the gist.
That one should be fun then :-)!
Here is my take:
Those words don’t come easy anymore
My mind hard as a rock!
Being poetic became such a chore
Where’s that muse of mine?
I need this little something now
That creative sparkle
Can hardly take those words as a pow
They would not bloom.
Tomorrow maybe there’s more words to come
and a new one shines!

Guys and Gals I needed a challenge and therefore visited Poetry Prompts on Tumblr. One of the prompts asked to write a poem with these three words:
And that is what I am using today :-):

I know, I know it’s nowhere near November but I do not schedule posts that far ahead 😉
According to Wikipedia an Acrostic is ” a poem or other form of writing in which the first letter, syllable or word of each line, paragraph or other recurring feature in the text spells out a word or a message”.
I have always found this restrictive way of writing a poem very interesting, inspiring and challenging and therefore chose this form for this weeks somehow boring topic of “November”.
I hope you enjoy this weeks “prompt with a twist” and write, verse, get creative and if you like it link to this blog or leave your poems in the comment box. THANKS!

I know its much too late or much too early for NaNo. However, some of you are editing your works from last November so I feel it is still ok to use this prompt in January…
NaNoWriMo actually means National Novel Writers Month! As I am taking part this year I have thought it would be fun to write a poem about it. There you go:

Another old poetry prompt that gives so much. Blimey, that was just before our wedding in 2012. This time it was the happiest day in my life 🙂
Halloween is not exactly a day many would choose as their wedding day. Well, besides those maniacs who love a themed wedding or pagans who think the end of the pagan year would be a fitting symbol for a new beginning.
We are not either but will take the plunge on Wednesday anyway and that is why this weeks #MondayPrompt is
“Happily ever after”
Come on then ~ make something of it 😉 that would be a lovely wedding present for me :-).
Write, verse, get creative and if you like it link to this blog or leave your poems in the comment box. THANKS’ S

That was odd. A poem and no prompt. I lost a lot of posts while moving my blogs. Well, I create a new prompt then 😉

It’s November 2018 and I am integrating old posts. Many got lost while I moved them to different blogs over the years. That is what happened to this weeks #MondayPrompt post. I have the poem but not the prompt. Never mind. We make a new one :-). Have fun!!!!
This weeks poetry prompt is

This is a great poetry prompt for the last day of the year. Let’s go wild and celebrate the year that goes out and the new one that comes….
I have been writing about the book “Women who run with the wolves” by Clarissa Pinkola-Estes in one of my blogs and it reminded me to be a bit more wild again. The book is actually telling about the archetype of “the wild woman” those parts of the female psyche which are not tamed by society and which according to her harbour creativity and healing.
I love that idea of keeping something wild in ourselves that can give us that little bit more we are craving. That is why the #MondayPrompt for the week 15/10 ~ 21/10/2012 is:
You can write about the wild nature of yourself or your poetry. You can write about a wild adventure or just about the wild in general. Many, many possibilities so please write, verse, get creative and if you like it link to this blog or leave your poems in the comment box. THANK’S
