CB, 14Dec14, Prompt #179 – “Dropping a Line At Holiday Time”

This time of year we hear many wonderful songs that help us to celebrate the Christmas and Holiday season. Take a line from one of these songs, spiritual or secular, and make it the theme/title/line in your poem.

Joy to the World

Yes, your name
I still whisper
in the silent night.

…a Nonet is a nine line poem, with the first line containing nine syllables, the next eight, and so on, until the last line has one syllable. So allow your syllables to FALL and write a brilliantly hued poem in keeping with the spirit of the Autumn Equinox.

Autumn’s Fair

A crimson heart leaf fluttering
Floating steadily silent
Through golden rays captured
In arms warmed secure
And steadfastly

Day 30, Granada Camp for Wayward Poets – “Goodbye, Farewell and Amen”

July 30th – Not the last day of the month, but we say adieu to Camp Granada today. Write a goodbye poem to camp, your mates, something specifically, or just to Summer in general (it will be over before we know it!) No need to be maudlin or melancholy. There must have been something (someone) to whom a goodbye is due!

Momentous Joy

Let me not say it
Goodbye is too sad a word
Let us remember…
