Passion Flower

Shock of red,

daring hue,

passions rise,

tempers too,

love the way,

you hold your own,

amidst the dull,

monotone,

Frock tales

Weekly writing challenge: Earliest memory

My earliest memory,

takes me back to,

when I was three,

My crazy pink fetish,

driving my mom,

up a tree!

Shopping with me,

 was her worst nightmare!,

I would cling on to a pink frock,

like a leach to your hair!

That still wouldn’t satisfy me,

I would insist on trying it on,

pirouette around and ask,

Why isn’t it twirling,

mom?

performed especially by a ballet dancer

Standing Out

Daily Prompt Challenge: STAND OUT

When was the last time you really stood out in a crowd? Are you comfortable in that position, or do you wish you could fade into the woodwork?

The last time I stood out,

I was part of a skit,

Did I enjoy it?

Of course I did!

The people watching,

appreciating my act,

a thrilling experience,

no doubt about that!

Silly Boy

Limerick: poetry challenge.

The challenge is to write a Limerick which is a five-line poem.

Rhymed AABBA.

It is to be witty or humorous and lewd within reason

Unwell, tired, baggy eyes,

barely open, is the end nearby?,

or maybe its not, he seems all right,

face aglow, eyes shining bright,

as

LOVE

walks

by,

silly boy!

Flower Baby

my latest garden rose

Feathery soft petals,

reaching out to the world,

their rose tinted edges,

like a new born’s toe curl,

All I want to do is,

wrap my fingers around,

and allow you to envelop me,

in your beauty abound!

We love

slotting people,

putting them

in little boxes,

giving them

fancy labels,

from dumb blonde,

to obnoxious.

We feel

a sense of pride,

Beginnings (Daily Prompt)

Daily Prompt: Origin Story

Why did you start your blog? Is that still why you blog, or has your site gone in a different direction than you’d planned?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us BEGINNINGS.

I started this blog,

with a desire

to enrich my vocabulary,

hoping that,

creating poetry

out of interesting words

would help store their meaning,

into memory!
