Lillian here, happy to host OLN today.

Did you know that August 9th is officially:

National Hand Holding Day

National Rice Pudding Day

National Book Lovers Day

International Day of the World’s Indigenous People

National Polka Day

So let’s celebrate!

Pick ONE from the list above and let me know here on the pub chat page, which one you’ll rock with today.  Let’s see which one gets the most votes!!

Hmmmm perhaps I should be serving celebratory drinks too? 

And it’s OLN so that means everyone can post ONE poem of their choosing – any form and any topic. 

I look forward to reading your poems! 

New to dVerse? Glad to have you – and here’s what we hope everyone does:

  • Share any ONE poem of your choosing and post to your own blog. 
  • Click on Mr. Linky below to add your name and enter the direct URL to your poem
  • On your blog, please provide a link back to dVerse. This enables others to enjoy our prompts, multiples our readers and thus the responses to everyone’s poems.
  • If you promote your poem on social media, use the tag #dverse poets
  • And most importantly, please do read some of the other responses to the prompt and add a short comment or reaction. Everyone likes to be appreciated! The prompt is “live” for several days – as you’ll notice by the comments you’ll receive – so do stop by another day and read a few of the latecomers too!
