‘”Stella!” It’s Friday Freeforall!’

8:39 a.m. — San Antonio

Hello, everyone. I’m so glad to be back in touch — you would think I had been gone for weeks. Welcome to all the new names I saw in my email  inbox on my phone. That’s as far as I get tech-wise, or I could have kept up with comments. I am on borrowed time, as my husband and I are sharing a 3G modem. We hope to have our wifi connected later today and I hope to respond to everyone by weekend’s end. Let’s see what we have to play with:

Donna and ‘The Poetry Mixtape’ will be taking a two week break. For anyone who has not visited Donna’s blog, Put Words Together. Make Meaning, I will leave a link here so you can visit and explore.

Joseph Harker gives us Reverie Twenty-three: poetic rhetoric. This week we receive a lesson in poetic rhetoric, and can finally go around calling the rhetorical devices by their original names. Besides sounding nifty, the words sum up long explanations in single words, so we can say: ‘I am using a series of hendiadys,’ instead of, ‘I am going to use several conjoined words for emphasis’. Bonus: If you have a background in Greek, which I do, you can see how the words mean what they do. Then, there is zeugma. Bonus: a great word to say.

Over at Adele’s, The Music In It: Adele Kenny’s Poetry Blog the topic is music as muse. Music makes a wonderful starting point for ideas and Adele gives us several directions to try. Adele’s prompts are always more than the sum of their parts. To read all the possibilities, and to be given links to corresponding poetry, visit.

Over at Poetic Bloomings we are diving into water. Visit to read what our hosts say and to read their poems in response to the prompt. Marie Elena and Walt have plenty to announce, so stop by their home page, as well.

Have you whirled? At The Sunday Whirl, Brenda and The Whirl give us our wordle words from the poems of the new U.S. Poet Laureate, Natasha Tretheway. Visit to see the wordle and to read what others have done.

Carry On Tuesday gives us the first words of a 1972 Johnny Nash hit. Head over to read the line and for a link to listen to the song. It took me right back. Love the music from that time period.

It’s that time: Limerick-off Mondays. Go to Mad Kane’s Humor Blog. Stay to shoot the breeze. She calls it a humour blog for a reason. Go for the laugh. It’s healthy. It doesn’t much matter if you don’t want to write a limerick; reading them brightens a day. Fact.

I love the image this week. So many possibilities, especially if you can read and translate the words that can be seen. This is the type of visual where you can focus on one element, or link a couple of items, or take the whole. Visit Magpie Tales for our image prompt and to read how others approached this image.

Shawna, over at rosemary mint, is taking her two week break from connected madness. I am giving you her blog’s general link, so you can wander through word lists if you need one. Shawna’s approach to word lists: ‘To participate, write a poem or short passage/story using at least one of the words listed below. Feel free to use word variations (e.g., “chancing” rather than “chance”) as necessary.’

Poetry Jam provides us with a prompt from Mary M, who wants us to celebrate. So many possibilities. She provides us with some photographs and quotes to give us a start. Head on over and see what the party is about.

For you alliterationists out there, visit ABC Wednesday. This week’s introduction offers, along with the introduction, a Video.

The three words this week for Three Word Wednesday are cling, murmur, and taken. Sounds like a Harlequin romance. You might try writing down the first thoughts that come into your head as you read these words, before you go on to visit the site for their definitions. TWW has a particularly good source and I often get ideas from the definitions rather than the given words.

Over at imaginary garden with real toads, Kenia is here with her Wednesday Challenge, where we are introduced to the poet, Vera Pavlova, and challenged to write a message to the world. The fun part is what we do with it, so head over and read the challenge. Mary’s Mixed Bag comes with a twist on the dream nightmare category of prompt. Visit and read her post. Go play with the toads.

We Write Poems wants more on not a cento cento. The new twist is a humdinger, so head over to take it in. I was sorry to miss the posting date this week. I had great fun writing my non-cento cento, using Anne Rice’s The Mummy!

At Poets United, opportunity knocks. Visit to find out the result.

At dVerse’s FormForAll, Gay gives us a form I haven’t come across by name, before, the Triversen. Read her thoughtful essay on ‘modern’ poetry and give the form a try. As always, explore the pub while you are there. They offer so much on their menu. It’s margarita week. You might find several of us propping up the bar. They make us feel welcome.

Patricia K. Lichen, Author, in her Weekend Haiku & Limericks gives us several options to use as resources. Snake sex? Come on! Tell me you aren’t going to check that out. An interesting possibility, she suggests, is to look at the comments and pull a poem from them. Visit for the possibilities and because it’s fun to wander through the site.

Flash fiction fans: I’m going to give you the link to the general site of Flashy Fiction, rather than always giving you Friday, as you might come to the site on a different day, thus be offered a different image. Pot luck. Remember that we often get a possible direction along with the image.

The final posting is for Trifecta, I have given you the link to the Instructions page. They have an interesting shtick. Visit and find out what.

If you have questions, ask. If you write in response to any of these, the people whose blogs you visit would love to read your responses. So, post!

Remember: If you have a topic you want me to discuss, tell me. I’ll take on just about anything and if it’s beyond me, I’ll find sources. What niggles? What have you wanted to ask, or know? If you have an announcement you want posted, send it along for Your Serendipity @ Thursday Thoughts. While Thoughts is going down for the summer, I would love to build for Autumn. What do you have for me?

I shall see you Tuesday the 19th, to see how you are doing with the summer rotation of Tryouts and to discuss cinquains and possibly the next item on the list; then, Friday for the next roundup. Lovely to be back among you. I am heading for my comments, now… okay, after I fetch a cup of coffee.

Happy writing, everyone.

TGI Friday Freeforall

7:37 a.m. — Atlanta

Hi, everyone. How are you? I continue to successfully avoid packing. Heck, we don’t leave ’til Sunday morning. This whole uprootedness for two months gets harder every year, but I enjoy seeing family and friends. Our son and his wife are hugging each other in anticipation: their first night out sans baby! The grandparents are coming! Meanwhile, to play:

We start with Donna and The Poetry Mixtape, where we meet Ocean Vuong and a poem from his chapbook Burnings. The topic is heritage, a subject almost all of us think about in its different guises. Head over to read the poem and Donna’s suggestions for our own poems.

Joseph Harker gives us Reverie Twenty-two: ten by ten. I really thought I would manage this one. If you haven’t tried your hand at a decima, it’s an interesting exercise. Go on over and read the prompt. Reading Joseph’s prompts, alone, are worth the visit!

Over at Adele’s, The Music In It: Adele Kenny’s Poetry Blog we have another topic that has been focused on in the past few weeks. For some different approaches to looking at choice versus chance, read Adele’s suggestions. Adele’s prompts are always more than the sum of their parts. To read all the possibilities, visit.

Something is in the air over at Poetic Bloomings. Visit to read what our hosts say and to read their poems in response to the prompt. Marie Elena and Walt have plenty to announce, so stop by their home page, as well.

Have you whirled? At The Sunday Whirl, Brenda and The Whirl give us our wordle words from Lone Wolf, by Jodi Picoult Visit to see the wordle and to read what others have done. The responses have been an interesting assortment.

Carry On Tuesday gives us the opening words of Brian De Palma’s 2002 movie, Femme Fatale. Head over to read the line and for a link to see the trailer.

It’s that time: Limerick-off Mondays. Go to Mad Kane’s Humor Blog. Stay to shoot the breeze. She calls it a humour blog for a reason. Go for the laugh. It’s healthy. It doesn’t much matter if you don’t want to write a limerick; reading them brightens a day. Fact.

Talk about an interesting visual to work with. My brain screamed in terror, but I notice 76 people had no problem. Visit Magpie Tales for our image prompt and to read how others approached this image.

Shawna, over at rosemary mint, has her word list up. She has taken her list from the June edition of Elle. Shawna’s approach to word lists: ‘To participate, write a poem or short passage/story using at least one of the words listed below. Feel free to use word variations (e.g., “chancing” rather than “chance”) as necessary.’

Poetry Jam provides us with a prompt from Peggy, who asks us to think about water. So many possibilities. As Coleridge’s speaker tells us: ‘Water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink.’ Have you read Elinor Wylie’s personification of water in ‘Sea Lullaby’? If not, take a side trip. Now there’s a view of water I have never been able to shake.

For you alliterationists out there, visit ABC Wednesday. This week’s introduction has quite an alliterative take on U.

The three words this week for Three Word Wednesday are bulky, mist, and resign. Hmmm. Not an easy looking threesome. You might try writing down the first thoughts that come into your head as you read these words, before you go on to visit the site for their definitions. They have a particularly good source and I often get ideas from the definitions rather than the given words.

Over at imaginary garden with real toads, Izy gives us a new challenge, Out of Standard. My reaction on reading the first, was: ‘Cool!’ Head over to find nifty new ways to play. Laurie’s Word comes with an interesting post to do with a topic concerning us all, along with some links to check. Go play with the toads.

We Write Poems asks for a not a cento cento. Yay! Sorry, personal bias. The prompt comes with a twist. This isn’t the usual cento we play with. To find out what is different, visit. I already have two different possibilities working…

At Poets United, we are told we can revel in all things Tim Burton!  For the rest of the prompt, head over. The images are fun and we are given several links, so that we can wallow in Burton, if we wish. If you have never read Burton’s poetry, you are in for a treat. Who can forget Matchstick Girl and Oyster Boy?

At dVerse’s Meeting the Bar, Chaz challenges us to try a new perspective. He suggests that our results be a small dedication to Ray Bradbury and his incredible legacy. As always, explore the pub while you are there. They offer so much on their menu. You might find several of us propping up the bar. They make us feel welcome.

Patricia K. Lichen, Author, in her Weekend Haiku & Limericks gives us several options to use as resources. Bruce Springsteen anyone? An interesting possibility, she suggests, is to look at the comments and pull a poem from them. Visit for the possibilities and because it’s fun to wander through the site.

Flash fiction fans: I’m going to give you the link to the general site of Flashy Fiction, rather than always giving you Friday, as you might come to the site on a different day, thus be offered a different image. Pot luck. Remember that we often get a possible direction along with the image.

The final posting is for Trifecta, I have given you the link to the Instructions page. They have an interesting shtick. Visit and find out what.

If you have questions, ask. If you write in response to any of these, the people whose blogs you visit would love to read your responses. So, post!

Remember: If you have a topic you want me to discuss, tell me. I’ll take on just about anything and if it’s beyond me, I’ll find sources. What niggles? What have you wanted to ask, or know? If you have an announcement you want posted, send it along for Your Serendipity @ Thursday Thoughts. While Thoughts is going down for the summer, I would love to build for Autumn. What do you have for me?

I may see you next Friday for the roundup. It depends on how settled I feel and whether the internet is behaving. HAHAHAHA. Otherwise, I shall see you Tuesday the 19th, to see how you are doing with the summer rotation of Tryouts and to discuss cinquains.

Happy writing, everyone.

8:14 a.m. — Atlanta

Whoa! It’s after eight and I am just starting. Must be summer. Do you feel the stirrings? Those from the southern spheres, are you blissfully reveling in cold? Teachers, congratulations. Some of you are done; some are so close. One more school year down. Let’s see what we have for you to play with this weekend.

We start with Donna and The Poetry Mixtape, where she introduces us to a poem by Aimee Nezhukumatahil, one of her favourites. Head over to read the poem and Donna’s suggestions for our own poems.

Joseph Harker gives us Reverie Twenty-one: charm bracelet. Another lovely title, and a great analogy to the Pandora bracelets, if you have seen the ad. If you have never written fragments [one possibility], it can be liberating. More playtime, at Joseph’s. Go on over and read the prompt.

Over at Adele’s, The Music In It: Adele Kenny’s Poetry Blog we are focusing on… well, go see. Talk about a serendipitous gathering of the forces over this last few days. Clearly, this topic is meant to be. Adele’s prompts are always more than the sum of their parts. To read all the possibilities, visit.

Do you lead, or follow, or a bit of both? Visit Poetic Bloomings to read what our hosts say and to read their poems in response to the prompt. Do not miss the interview with our [if I may] ViV.

Have you whirled? At The Sunday Whirl, Brenda and The Whirl give us our wordle list from me! Visit to see the wordle and to read what others have done.

Carry On Tuesday gives us the title and first line of one of The Beatles‘ most memorable songs. Head over to read the line and for a link to hear the song. I am playing it now and may be distracted for a few moments.

It’s that time: Limerick-off Mondays. Go to Mad Kane’s Humor Blog for a lot more besides. If she ever runs out of topics I shall go into mourning. She calls it a humour blog for a reason. Go for the laugh. It’s healthy. It doesn’t much matter if you don’t want to write a limerick; reading them brightens a day. Fact.

I don’t know how I missed this painting when we were focusing on Hopper. Visit Magpie Tales for our image prompt. We are given a Hopper that looks like something out of a British country murder mystery. Head over to see what we have.

Shawna, over at rosemary mint, has her word list up. She has taken her list from the introduction to Sylvia Plath’s Letters Home. Shawna also gives us some excerpts from the introduction, which is written by Plath’s mother. Visit!

Poetry Jam provides us with a prompt from Dani who asks us to focus on a few genres of painting. Along with the ideas she gives us for writing a poem, look at what Dani says about the styles. You might want to match your content to the form, so the form of your poem is the form of the painting.

For you alliterationists out there, visit ABC Wednesday. The introduction of this week’s letter reminds us we are almost at the alphabet’s end [So soon? Again? It has been 26 weeks? Really?]: ‘TALKING of teamwork – would YOU like to be involved with ABC Wednesday? Only a few more weeks to go before we reach ANOTHER Round. How about YOU writing an introduction, or becoming part of the TEAM?‘ Head over to take on T.

The three words this week for Three Word Wednesday are error, jingle, and vindicate. Often, the challenge is to not use the words in an obvious way. You might try writing down the first thoughts that come into your head as you read these words, before you go on to visit the site for their definitions. They have a particularly good source and I often get ideas from the definitions rather than the given words.

Over at imaginary garden with real toads we have Kerry’s Wednesday Challenge ~ Steampunk. I adore all things Steampunk. If it weren’t such expensive stuff, I would request a permanent Steampunk present on my birthday, and at Christmas, from my husband. Kerry gives us an idea of the style of language for this genre. You want to have fun? Write  your Steampunk poem in Steampunk language. Check the rest of the week too. Suzi Quatro is wandering around. I may never leave the garden. Go play with the toads.

We Write Poems gives us a prompt that tells us to Face up to it! To discover what we are facing, head over to read the rest.

At Poets United, we are asked to consider the concept of possibilities. For the rest of the prompt, head over. The images, as usual, are lovely.

At dVerse’s FormForAll we have a post discussing free verse, something many think of as a style, rather than a form. Read the essay. As always, explore the pub while you are there. They offer so much on their menu. You might find several of us propping up the bar. They make us feel so welcome.

Patricia K. Lichen, Author, in her Weekend Haiku & Limericks gives us several options to use as resources. An interesting possibility, she suggests, is to look at the comments and pull a poem from them. Visit for the possibilities and because it’s fun to wander through the site.

Flash fiction fans: I’m going to give you the link to the general site of Flashy Fiction, rather than always giving you Friday, as you might come to the site on a different day, thus be offered a different image. Pot luck. Remember that we often get a possible direction along with the image.

The final posting is for Trifecta, I have given you the link to the Instructions page. They have an interesting shtick. Visit and find out what.

If you have questions, ask. If you write in response to any of these, the people whose blogs you visit would love to read your responses. So, post!

Remember: If you have a topic you want me to discuss, tell me. I’ll take on just about anything and if it’s beyond me, I’ll find sources. What niggles? What have you wanted to ask, or know? If you have an announcement you want posted, send it along for Your Serendipity @ Thursday Thoughts. While Thoughts is going down for the summer, I would love to build for Autumn. What do you have for me?

I shall see you next Tuesday for our summer prompt list; and next Friday for the roundup.

Happy writing, everyone.

Playtime: Friday Freeforall

7:23 a.m. — Atlanta

Hello, everyone. C’mon weekend! To keep you company, a few prompts:

We start with Donna and The Poetry Mixtape, where she introduces us to Kay Ryan, the U.S. poet laureate from 2008-2010. Ryan’s poem, ‘Crown,’ is an example of how much can be said in a short poem. Head over to read the poem and Donna’s suggestions for our own poems.

Joseph Harker gives us Reverie Twenty: taste the rainbow. What a lovely title, although there was a brain cell that said Jim Jones? Cool aid? I have odd brain cells. Some of you will be old enough to remember. The prompt is great fun. I think all of us like playing with colour; it’s almost as good as a box of Crayolas. Go on over and read the prompt.

Over at Adele’s, The Music In It: Adele Kenny’s Poetry Blog we are focusing on the number five. To find out what and why, visit. Adele’s prompts are always more than the sum of their parts. To read all the possibilities, visit.

This week on Poetic Bloomings we are asked to say, Enough! Visit to read what our hosts say and to read their poems in response to the prompt. Do not miss the latest interview with our [if I may] ViV.

Have you whirled? At The Sunday Whirl, Brenda and The Whirl give us our wordle list from three poems. Visit for links to the poems, to see the wordle and to read what others have done. The Everest climbers from Montana made the summit twelve hours ago! I have followed them since Brenda introduced them last week.

Carry On Tuesday has come roaring back. I told Keith he needs to nudge every now and then. This week, the line is the last in Margaret Mitchell’s Gone With the Wind. Head over to read the line and for a link to other quotes from the novel.

Go to Mad Kane’s Humor Blog for her Limerick-off Mondays and a lot more besides. If she ever runs out of topics I shall go into mourning. She calls it a humour blog for a reason. Go for the laugh. It’s healthy. It doesn’t much matter if you don’t want to write a limerick; reading them brightens a day. Fact.

Visit Magpie Tales for our image prompt. We are given a Chagall, with a few possibilities. We can write about the entire scene, do a portrait poem of one of the people, focus only on the foreground, only the background, the title… Head over to see what we have.

Shawna, over at rosemary mint, has her word list up. She has taken her list from an encyclopedic entry on butterflies. Shawna always has stunning images to accompany her posts. Visit!

Poetry Jam provides us with a prompt from Mary. She asks us to focus on bullies and bullying. It might be interesting to do an internal monologue from the perspective of the bullied and the bully. Head over to read what she says on this relevant topic. She has a link to the trailer for the recently released movie.

For you alliterationists out there, visit ABC Wednesday. The introduction of this week’s letter involves a photograph. I was going through reading signs when I remembered I had left you all here.

The three words this week for Three Word Wednesday are flesh, novice, and sear. Often, the challenge is to not use the words in an obvious way. You might try writing down the first thoughts that come into your head as you read these words, before you go on to visit the site for their definitions. They have a particularly good source and I often get ideas from the definitions rather than the given words.

Over at imaginary garden with real toads we have Ella’s Edge where she taunts us with gorgeous photographs of food. The prompt? I have no idea; I am busy salivating. Go on over to find out why. Check the rest of the week too. Go play with the toads.

We Write Poems gives us a prompt whose title suggests we get real. The premise is interesting. Head over to read the rest.

At Poets United, we are asked to consider honour. For the rest of the prompt, head over.

At dVerse’s Meeting the Bar we have an interesting essay and prompt on stream of consciousness writing. This of value to all of us, even if just to practice freewriting, good for what ails you when the ideas dry up. As always, explore the pub while you are there. They offer so much on their menu. You might find several of us propping up the bar. They make us feel so welcome. This was posted yesterday. Already there are 78 comments.

Patricia K. Lichen, Author, in her Weekend Haiku & Limericks gives us several options to use as resources. ‘Elephants and goodbyes’ anyone? Visit for the possibilities and because it’s fun to wander through the site.

Flash fiction fans: I’m going to give you the link to the general site of Flashy Fiction, rather than always giving you Friday, as you might come to the site on a different day, thus be offered a different image. Pot luck. Remember that we often get a possible direction along with the image.

The final posting is for Trifecta, I have given you the link to the Instructions page. They have an interesting shtick. Visit and find out what.

If you have questions, ask. If you write in response to any of these, the people whose blogs you visit would love to read your responses. So, post!

Remember: If you have a topic you want me to discuss, tell me. I’ll take on just about anything and if it’s beyond me, I’ll find sources. What niggles? What have you wanted to ask, or know? If you have an announcement you want posted, send it along for Your Serendipity @ Thursday Thoughts.

I shall see you next Tuesday for an image prompt; Thursday for announcements, or a topic [send them in if you have any]; and next Friday for the roundup.

Happy writing, everyone.

Friday Freeforall: Join the Party

7:44 a.m. — Atlanta

Hello, one and all. Welcome new people. Let’s get to work!

We start with Donna and The Poetry Mixtape, where she introduces us to aubades through Traci Brimhall and her poem ‘Aubade With a Broken Neck’. Lordy, it is beautiful. Head over to read the poem and Donna’s suggestion for our own poems.

Joseph Harker gives us Reverie Nineteen: quantum entanglement. I find I am always smiling when writing about Joseph’s prompts. They are all so gorgeously complex and brain-stretching. Joseph assures us we are going to love this one, so head over and find out.

Over at Adele’s, The Music In It: Adele Kenny’s Poetry Blog she is celebrating her 100th prompt! The prompt reflects what is being celebrated, as usual, in interesting ways. Adele’s prompts are always more than the sum of their parts. To read all the possibilities, visit. While there, scroll down on the right and watch the short video: How to Read Poetry. It’s barely post-first coffee and I laughed three times.

This week on Poetic Bloomings we are asked to come home. Visit to read what our hosts say and to read their poems in response to the prompt.

At The Sunday Whirl, Brenda and The Whirl give us our wordle list from the teacher resource page to do with a a current attempt to reach the summit of Mt. Everest. Visit to see the wordle and to read what others have done. You might also check the link to the climbers. I have been thoroughly enjoying following them.

Carry On Tuesday tells us it is ‘Time to Say Goodbye’. To read Kevin’s reasoning, and to hear the song, go on over. This may be the last Carry On Tuesday prompt, although Kevin has revived before.

Go to Mad Kane’s Humor Blog for her Limerick-off Mondays and a lot more besides. She calls it a humour blog for a reason. Go for the laugh. It’s healthy. It doesn’t much matter if you don’t want to write a limerick; reading them brightens a day. Fact.

Visit Magpie Tales for our image prompt. We are given a Gauguin painting, with several possibilities. We can write about the entire scene, do a portrait poem of one of the people, focus only on the still life parts, involve the colours… Head over to see what we have.

Shawna, over at rosemary mint, has her word list up. It is an unusual list in that Shawna has given us a link to a compilation of 100 words. I found the words fascinating. You all almost lost me there, but I’ll get this posted before I go back and wallow in words.

Poetry Jam provides us with a prompt from Peggy. She asks us to focus on forests. Head over to read what she says and to see the lovely photographs. There are forests and then there are forests.

For you alliterationists out there, visit ABC Wednesday. The introduction of this week’s letter is almost poetic.

The three words this week for Three Word Wednesday are fawn, juggle, and navigate. Remember that it’s all about the three words working together. You might try writing down the first thoughts that come into your head as you read these words, before you go on to visit the site for their definitions. They have a particularly good source and I often get ideas from the definitions rather than the given words.

Over at imaginary garden with real toads we get two for one visit. First, we have Kenia with an unusual challenge. We also have Mary’s Mixed Bag where we are given a chance to play with point of view. Check the rest of the week too. Go play with the toads.

We Write Poems gives us a prompt from Donald Harbour. We are asked to consider roads taken and not taken. Sound familiar? Head over to read the rest.

Everyone seems to have coordinated prompts. We are engaging in a lot of looking back. At Poets United, we are asked to remember the playgrounds of our youth. For the rest of the prompt, head over.

At dVerse it’s Form For All time. Those of you with a good ear, this is for you, a poem to do with sprung rhythm. This, of course, is also for developing ears. Reading about metre makes me weep, so I’m heading for the bar. I’ll wait for you there. As always, explore the pub while you are there. They offer so much on their menu.

Patricia K. Lichen, Author in her Weekend Haiku & Limericks gives us our options to use as resources. What is it about coyotes? By the time you visit, this week’s blog may have turned over, so check.  Visit for the possibilities and because it’s fun to wander through the site.

Flash fiction fans: I’m going to give you the link to the general site of Flashy Fiction, rather than always giving you Friday, as you might come to the site on a different day, thus be offered a different image. Pot luck. Remember that we often get a possible direction along with the image.

The final posting is for Trifecta, I have given you the link to the Instructions page. They have an interesting shtick. Visit and find out what.

If you have questions, ask. If you write in response to any of these, the people whose blogs you visit would love to read your responses. So, post!

Remember: If you have a topic you want me to discuss, tell me. I’ll take on just about anything and if it’s beyond me, I’ll find sources. What niggles? What have you wanted to ask, or know? If you have an announcement you want posted, send it along for Your Serendipity @ Thursday Thoughts.

I shall see you next Tuesday for a prompt that looks at an aspect of self; Thursday for announcements, or a topic [send them in if you have any]; and next Friday for the roundup.

Have a good weekend. Happy writing, everyone.

TGIF Freeforall

7:36 a.m. — Atlanta

Hello, all. Ready for a weekend? Then let’s get to it. I spotted some fun prompts as I criss-crossed the sites this week.

We start with Donna and The Poetry Mixtape, where she introduces us to Marie Howe and her poem ‘What the Living Do’. With Donna’s help, my collection of poems that move me strongly is growing fast. Head over to read the poem and Donna’s suggestion for our own poems.

Joseph Harker gives us Reverie Eighteen: Singing the World, which introduces us to an unusual and lovely form, the sijo. Go on over to read the whole, because you know there is a whole lot more to it, and to give the form a try. A series of linked sijos might make for an interesting poem.

Over at Adele’s, The Music In It: Adele Kenny’s Poetry Blog she focuses on imagery and reminds us of all the things imagery isn’t. As usual, she provides us with poems that reflect what she says. Adele also suggests signing up for Diane Lockward’s newsletter, a suggestion I heartily second. I have been receiving it for over a year and look forward to its arrival each month. Adele’s prompts are always more than the sum of their parts. To read all the possibilities, visit.

This week on Poetic Bloomings we have several things to do. The prompt suggests we find a favourite something. To know what that refers to, go on over. Then we have an interview with Michael Grove AND, we have a link that takes us to an interview with Walt over at Claudsy’s blog. They never stop these two. Visit to read what our hosts say and to read their poems in response to the prompt.

At The Sunday Whirl, Brenda and The Whirl give us our wordle list from her daughter’s Teen Vogue. Visit to see the wordle and to read what others have done.

Carry On Tuesday gives us the opening line to Bonnie Tyler’s Total Eclipse of the Heart. To read the line and hear the song head over. I am going to pause a second and do just that. Love that song. Okay, if you live in the U.S. go to the link I have here. Keith’s link doesn’t like us, or me.

Go to Mad Kane’s Humor Blog for her Limerick-off Mondays and a lot more besides. She calls it a humour blog for a reason. Go for the laugh. It’s healthy. It doesn’t much matter if you don’t want to write a limerick; reading them brightens a day. Fact.

Visit Magpie Tales for our image prompt. It’s oddly normal. Head over to see what we have.

Shawna, over at rosemary mint, has her word list up. It is an unusual list, yet I feel compelled. Maybe when I am done here… amygdala… mastodon… In case your brain screams, Shawna has included a later list with, as she terms them, ‘prettier’ words.

Poetry Jam provides us with a prompt from Mary Mansfield, who joins the other Jammers this week. She wants us to focus on the different aspects of blindness, so head over to read the prompt.

For you alliterationists out there, visit ABC Wednesday. I cannot believe we are already at this end of the alphabet, again. Head over.

The three words this week for Three Word Wednesday are dampen, keep, and tremble. Remember that it’s all about the three words working together. You might try writing down the first thoughts that come into your head as you read these words, before you go on to visit the site for their definitions. They have a particularly good source and I often get ideas from the definitions rather than the given words.

Over at imaginary garden with real toads we get two for one visit. First, we have Grace with her final format challenge. She provides us with links to the various forms she has shared with us over the past months and also gives us the text of the renga which many of us had such fun writing. We also have Laurie who finds a word amongst the toads. Visit to read the prompts. Check the rest of the week too. Go play with the toads.

We Write Poems sends us back to the beginning. To find out what that means, visit. I think I may piggyback my Tuesday prompt on this. Hmm.

At Poets United, we are asked to consider the news. One possibility offered is a Blackout poem. If you haven’t tried these, they provide directions and a link to Austin Kleon‘s website. If you go there, scroll down, and you will find a delightful video interview with him. For the rest of the prompt, and some wonderful images, head over.

At dVerse Chazinator waxes poetic about machines in Meeting the Bar. His essay is fun and informative and ends with possibilities for our own machined poems. As always, explore the pub while you are there. They offer so much on their menu.

Patricia K. Lichen, Author in her Weekend Haiku & Limericks gives us our options to use as resources. By the time you visit, this week’s blog may have turned over, so check.  Visit for the possibilities and because it’s fun to wander through the site.

Flash fiction fans: I’m going to give you the link to the general site of Flashy Fiction, rather than always giving you Friday, as you might come to the site on a different day, thus be offered a different image. Pot luck. Remember that we often get a possible direction along with the image.

The final posting is for Trifecta, I have given you the link to the Instructions page. They have an interesting shtick. Visit and find out what.

If you have questions, ask. If you write in response to any of these, the people whose blogs you visit would love to read your responses. So, post!

Remember: If you have a topic you want me to discuss, tell me. I’ll take on just about anything and if it’s beyond me, I’ll find sources. What niggles? What have you wanted to ask, or know? If you have an announcement you want posted, send it along for Your Serendipity @ Thursday Thoughts.

I shall see you next Tuesday for a prompt that looks at your life [so start with WWP’s prompt :-)]; Thursday for announcements, or a topic [send them in if you have any]; and next Friday for the roundup.

Happy writing, everyone.

Prompt Week: Friday Freeforall

7:37 a.m. — Atlanta

Hello, everyone. Are you recovering, poem-a-dayers? Now you can go back to trying to write for all the lovely prompts out there!

We start with Donna and The Poetry Mixtape, where she introduces us to Rachel Bunting, who needs no introduction to many of us, who feel much as Donna does about her. In the Mixtape she gives us a link to Rachel’s poem ‘The Apiary’. I am still hauling in the emotions let loose by reading it. Head over to read the poem and Donna’s suggestion for our own poems.

Joseph Harker gives us Reverie Seventeen: Correspondences, which talks about the associations of groups with other groups that are real or invented. Patterns. Go on over to read the whole, because you know there is a whole lot more to it.

Over at Adele’s, The Music In It: Adele Kenny’s Poetry Blog the prompt ends with: Look through a “window” (real, imagined, symbolic, metaphorical, or in a dream) and create a poem. Adele’s prompts are always more than the sum of their parts. To read all the possibilities, visit.

This week on Poetic Bloomings we have several things to do. The prompt suggests we write a seed poem. To know what that refers to, go on over. Then we have a form, the pantoum, one of my all-time favourites. AND, we have a link that takes us to an interview with Marie Elena over at Khara House’s blog. Whew. Visit to read what our hosts say and to read their poems in response to the prompt.

At The Sunday Whirl, Brenda and The Whirl give us our wordle list from Marianne, who takes them from Sylvia Plath’s ‘Blackberrying’. Visit to see the wordle and to read what others have done.

Carry On Tuesday gives us the opening line to a Byron poem. To read the line and the poem, visit Keith, who is back from his travels.

Go to Mad Kane’s Humor Blog for her Limerick-off Mondays and a lot more besides. She calls it a humour blog for a reason. Go for the laugh. It’s healthy. It doesn’t much matter if you don’t want to write a limerick; reading them brightens a day. Fact.

Visit Magpie Tales for our image prompt. I spent some time with this image, first deciding he is, in fact, naked, then wondering what book he might be reading… hey! it’s early. I haven’t had my second cup. Head over to see what we have.

Shawna, over at rosemary mint, has her word list up.

Poetry Jam provides us with a prompt from Mary, this week. She wants us to write an Everybody knows… poem. She offers the treat of listening to Leonard Cohen on the topic, so head over to read the prompt.

For you alliterationists out there, visit ABC Wednesday. The introduction gives us a link to four songs we baby boomers can feel nostalgic about. The rest of you, enjoy. Head over to look.

The three words this week for Three Word Wednesday are generous, just, and penalise. Remember that it’s all about the three words working together. You might try writing down the first thoughts that come into your head as you read these words, before you go on to visit the site for their definitions. They have a particularly good source and I often get ideas from the definitions rather than the given words.

Over at imaginary garden with real toads we get two for one visit. First, we have Kerry’s Wednesday Challenge which asks us to think about roads. She provides us with several quotes and some stunning images to kickstart our thinking. We also have Marian who asks us to give tribute to Levon Helms, who just died. For those who don’t know his work, head over for an example, then Google for more. I have ‘Up On Cripple Creek’ in my every day play list. Visit to read the prompts. Check the rest of the week too. Go play with the toads.

We Write Poems wants us to Allow “nothing much” to be more than enough. They suggest a break this week. Visit to see what it’s about, but if you don’t, they’ll be back next week.

At Poets United, we are asked to consider wishes. For the rest of the prompt, and some wonderful photographs to start us, head over.

Over at dVerse their Form For All introduces us to the Clarian Sonnet. If you have never heard of one, then head over. As always, explore the pub while you are there. They offer so much on their menu.

Over at Patricia K. Lichen, Author her Weekend Haiku & Limericks gives us four options to use as resources, among which is The Shining. Now, that might be fun. By the time you visit, this week’s blog may have turned over, so check.  Visit for the possibilities and because it’s fun to wander through the site.

Flash fiction fans: I’m going to give you the link to the general site of Flashy Fiction, rather than always giving you Friday, as you might come to the site on a different day, thus be offered a different image. Pot luck. Remember that we often get a possible direction along with the image.

The final posting is for Trifecta, I have given you the link to the Instructions page. They have an interesting shtick. Visit and find out what.

If you have questions, ask. If you write in response to any of these, the people whose blogs you visit would love to read your responses. So, post!

Remember: If you have a topic you want me to discuss, tell me. I’ll take on just about anything and if it’s beyond me, I’ll find sources. What niggles? What have you wanted to ask, or know? If you have an announcement you want posted, send it along for Your Serendipity @ Thursday Thoughts.

I shall see you next Tuesday for a form [oh yes, I am back]; Thursday for announcements, or a topic [send them in if you have any]; and next Friday for the roundup.

Hello, everyone. Three more days of poeming. You can do it. Then you have your life back and can go back to writing a poem a day anyway, because that’s how many prompts there are out there.

Joseph Harker gives us Reverie Sixteen: Nothing But a Pack of Cards, which offers us an involved process that’s a whole lot of fun. I have a labeling machine and now have a pack of cards with all sorts of possibilities. Go on over to read the whole.

Over at Adele’s, The Music In It: Adele Kenny’s Poetry Blog gives us something a little different for the month: ‘I offer you an inspiration word or phrase and a related poem for each of April’s thirty days. You may wish to read, write, or do both. Keep in mind that writing a poem a day doesn’t mean that you have to “finish” each poem immediately. You can write a draft each day and set your drafts aside to work on later‘. Adele has the entire month listed and waiting. To read all the possibilities, visit.

This week on Poetic Bloomings the talk is of endings and beginnings, as they celebrate their first year of gardening. Visit to read what our hosts say about it and to read their poems in response to the prompt. While you are there, check out their interview with Mark Windham.

Go to Mad Kane’s Humor Blog for her Limerick-off Mondays and a lot more besides. She calls it a humour blog for a reason. Go for the laugh. It’s healthy. It doesn’t much matter if you don’t want to write a limerick; reading them brightens a day. Fact.

The three words this week for Three Word Wednesday are bloody, kinky, and tender. Remember that it’s all about the three words working together.

They have a particularly good source and I often get ideas from the definitions rather than the given words.

Over at imaginary garden with real toads we get two for one visit. First, we have Ella’s Edge which asks us to consider a number of things to do with our inner and outer worlds, so you will need to head over and read the exercise. We also have Fireblossom Friday. Here we are introduced to the work of Alphonse Mucha. Visit to read the prompts. Check the rest of the week too. Go play with the toads.

Over at Patricia K. Lichen, Author her Weekend Haiku & Limericks gives us the usual three options to use as resources. By the time you visit, this week’s blog may have turned over, so check.  Visit for the possibilities and because it’s fun to wander through the site.

Flash fiction fans: I’m going to give you the link to the general site of Flashy Fiction, rather than always giving you Friday, as you might come to the site on a different day, thus be offered a different image. Pot luck. Remember that we often get a possible direction along with the image.

Poem a day ends next Monday, but I thought I had better give you a week to collect yourselves, so I shall see you next Thursday for announcements [send them in if you have any]; and next Friday for the roundup.

Prompts Friday Freeforall

7:27 a.m. — Atlanta

Hello, everyone. You’re almost half-way through your poem-a-daying. You can practically see the end date.

Let us start with Donna and The Poetry Mixtape, where she discusses Douglas Goetsch and gives us a prompt based on the title of one of his poems.

Joseph Harker gives us Reverie Fourteen: Ghazal Bootcamp, which takes us through the basics of ghazal-ing. This is a form that took me years to conquer [mostly years spent avoiding actually trying it], but which gives me immense satisfaction. There is beauty in the rhythm of a ghazal. Besides, it’s fun to wrestle with a form.Go on over to read the whole.

Over at Adele’s, The Music In It: Adele Kenny’s Poetry Blog gives us something a little different for the month: ‘I offer you an inspiration word or phrase and a related poem for each of April’s thirty days. You may wish to read, write, or do both. Keep in mind that writing a poem a day doesn’t mean that you have to “finish” each poem immediately. You can write a draft each day and set your drafts aside to work on later‘. Adele has the entire month listed and waiting. To read all the possibilities, visit.

This week on Poetic Bloomings we are asked to make a comeback. To find out more and to read our hosts’ poems, head over. While you are there, stop by and read the interview with Hannah Gosselin. Those who don’t know her will love meeting Hannah and those who know her will love it because they know her.

At The Sunday Whirl, Brenda tells us the words are from Joy Harjo’s poem ‘Equinox’. Visit to see the wordle and to read what others have done.

Carry On Tuesday gives us the opening to ‘Lines on a Clock in Chester Cathedral,’ by Henry Twells. To read the line and the poem, visit Keith, who warns us he will be dark for a couple of weeks while he travels. He will leave Mr. Linky open.

Go to Mad Kane’s Humor Blog for her Limerick-off Mondays and a lot more besides. She calls it a humour blog for a reason. Go for the laugh. It’s healthy. It doesn’t much matter if you don’t want to write a limerick; reading them brightens a day. Fact.

Visit Magpie Tales for our image prompt. This week’s image is a painting which continues the vein of surrealist images in which Magpie has been indulging. This one is going to drive me nuts because of its title? artist? It’s not a surname… Head over to see what we have.

Poetry Jam provides us with a prompt from Peggy, this week. She wants us to look at mysteries. Go on over to see what else she says. If you are having a hard time coming up with a mystery in your life, ask yourself ‘I wonder why…’ and see where your brain goes.

For you alliterationists out there, visit ABC Wednesday. The introduction lets us read a little about Mrs. Nesbitt, founder of the ABC project.

The three words this week for Three Word Wednesday are draft, locate, and serenity. Check out the meanings of draft. I’m not sure I have seen a word with such a diversity of meanings, which means I’m off to the etymology dictionary. Hmmm… from draw, Old English dragan, to drag. Now go back and look at the meanings the site gives us with that in mind.Remember that it’s all about the three words working together. You might try writing down the first thoughts that come into your head as you read these words, before you go on to visit the site for their definitions. They have a particularly good source and I often get ideas from the definitions rather than the given words.

Over at imaginary garden with real toads we get two for one visit. First, we have Grace’s Challenge and what a challenge it is. She would like us to build a renga! Head over to see how she suggests we build this community poem. It has already started, so read what is there and write the next stanza. I have mine ready as soon as I post this. We also have A Word With Laurie. Visit to read the prompt. Check the rest of the week too. Go play with the toads.

We Write Poems wants us to consider spirits, the spirit, spirit. Each has a different connotation, doesn’t it? Visit to see what it’s about. Also, WWP is one of the sites offering a place to post your poems for the month.

At Poets United, we are asked to think about keys, more specifically, the keys in our lives. For the rest of the prompt, and some lovely images, head over.

Over at dVerse’s we are given a fascinating essay by the Chazinator on science and poetry. Throughout, he references poets and gives examples of what they have to say on the topic, through their poems. The prompt asks that we reference in some way the scientific spirit of our time. To read the essay and his suggestions for how we approach the prompt, head over. As always, explore the pub while you are there. They offer so much on their menu.

Over at Patricia K. Lichen, Author her Weekend Haiku & Limericks focuses us more narrowly than usual, asking us to get our inspiration from two sources.  Visit for the possibilities and because it’s fun to wander through the site.

Flash fiction fans: I’m going to give you the link to the general site of Flashy Fiction, rather than always giving you Friday, as you might come to the site on a different day, thus be offered a different image. Pot luck.

The final posting is for Trifecta, I have given you the link to the Instructions page. They have an interesting shtick. Visit and find out what.

If you have questions, ask. If you write in response to any of these, the people whose blogs you visit would love to read your responses. So, post!

Remember: If you have a topic you want me to discuss, tell me. I’ll take on just about anything and if it’s beyond me, I’ll find sources. What niggles? What have you wanted to ask, or know? If you have an announcement you want posted, send it along for Your Serendipity @ Thursday Thoughts.

The blog is dark until May, except for Fridays, so I shall see you next Friday for the next roundup of prompts.

Happy writing, everyone.
