There Will Be Poems


I am going to write a poem about this photo by midnight.  I thought I’d invite you to write one, first, and share it.

It is now after midnight, predictably.  I found a spare business card with a back so bare.


Feel free to still join in, as well.  If you write it on your blog, just leave a link.  Otherwise, scribble in the comments below.

Any style or substance is allowed.

    I have posted my response on my blog here:

    Thanks for the challenge Nelly. I needed a reason to let out the words I’ve been keeping inside.

  3. When will I ever see life clearly?
    When will I know my future?
    It’s like I am standing on the shore
    I know it’s going to be beautiful
    yet it’s blurred
    will it ever come?
    blurred beauty of the future
    I wait for focus
    Clarfiy, intensify
    life is blurred

    “Hello,” said Rachel. “Where is Jenelle?”

    thanks for being so quick to respond. Your new blog is really lovely, as is your haiku.

    @Brian in Ibiza,
    I love your transparency. It runs all through your blog, better than anyone I know. And it runs down your nice poem.

    I like you.
