Important Notice!!! We are currently dealing with a serious health crisis involving David. Computer time and blogging will be taking a backseat until we can get this situation under control and, hopefully, save his leg. Please bear with us as we go through this difficult time. Thank you for any prayers that you can offer up.

Also, if you'd love to help cheer him up, please subscribe to his YouTube channel. That would really make his day! The link is at the bottom of all of my posts.

Thank you and Merry Christmas to all of you!

Writer's Workshop Thursday: Starting Over

One of this week's Writer's Workshop prompts is:

Write a poem about starting over.

You started something.
You tried to sway me.
You flustered me
With your brattitude
...and gorgeous grin.

You messed me up.
You knocked me down.
You broke my heart
With your arrogance
...and wandering eyes.

The world stopped spinning
And I stood straight
Put the pieces back
I opened my eyes
...and started over.

  1. Great use of end stops! I like the flow of the poem! Congrats, girl!

  2. What a great poem! I love the flow and your words really touched me! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Thank you, Miel and Barbara!

    Prompted poetry is kind of hard for me. It is easier for me when it just comes to me on its own. But, maybe by practicing with prompted poetry, it will unlock the flow of those from the heart, too. It's worth a shot, right?

    Thanks so much for the kind words and encouragement and for stopping by to comment. I appreciate it very much!
