Hello everyone, Anthony Desmond behind the bar tonight.
Before we get into the prompt, I would like to announce that
I am leaving d’verse. But, some good news! I’ve just been signed
to a publisher, an imprint through Underwater Mountains,
and seeing the dream of my own book(s) finally become a reality.
All my love and appreciation for everyone on the squad,
even those who have come and gone. My faith in the
poetry world was restored when I discovered OneStopPoetry
and followed right along to d’Verse. I’ve always felt like
a part of this family even before I was asked to be a member,
and for that, I am grateful. Stay true and love poetry…
now moving on…
For this week’s poetics, I have a simple and fun challenge.
Below are eight of my own original lines:
Flood me like a lone streetlight amongst the darkness
Craved images of you
A lost love found me, in you
Like a lioness with belladonna in her eyes
Shooting eggs with guns
Fluidity of your presence
Shade like shadow
The heart makes the simplest things so damn complicated
You will write a poem and include at least three lines in it;
there’s no specific topic, just get creative and bring some new life into the lines.
