Revamping Poetry

I was a little undecided about entering into the Writer’s Digest Chapbook Challenge from all of November’s poetry. I just didn’t feel like anything gelled and I was at a loss for how I could put the poetry together into a collection.  509 more words

She Disappeared - Or, Now She's Back

Hello dearies,

After Writer’s Digest’s Poem a Day (PAD) and sending in my five poems, I kind of crashed when it came to writing. I found it apropos that on the Wednesday following PAD, Robert Brewer posted the poem prompt, When Everything Stops. 345 more words

Take it all in, the
cracked bricks and broken bottles –
make a poem of it. 6 more words

PAD Day 30 - Dead End - Dead Ends and Roads, and Endings?

Well, it’s here.  Yesterday was the last day of the Writer’s Digest Poem a Day challenge.  How will I ever survive without a poetry prompt every day? 779 more words

Haphazard

Important: Please Call Home

I can hear your voice
before I can hear your voice –
I know that he’s gone
too soon for me to know the
loss, save as it’s etched on you
