Deb at San Diego Momma is hosting PROMPTuesday #22: Writing Poetry.
Deb’s rules for this prompt are as follows:
Today, write a poem including the following lines in any order:
“I tie a ribbon in a foolish way”
“The delicious fragility of this travesty”
“Where we still laugh and wish”
* Try to write your entry in 10 minutes. This encourages top-of-mind, primal thinking before the ego and judgmental brain kick in. Just set a timer, make your kid count to 600 slowly, whatever. It’s an honor system. And I trust you.
* Aim for 250 words or less.
* Please have fun. Don’t put pressure on yourself. Together, let’s rediscover the simple joy in the writing process.
Here is my PROMPTuesday #22:
I tie a ribbon in a foolish way
In moments the ribbon will surely go
You’ll say that you prefer your hair to flow
The mirror pleasantly reflects your sweet fluffy crown
Heavenly mane freed from the ribbon flows softly down
Brown, gold, shining and light; reflecting your majesty
The delicious fragility of this travesty
Growing and abiding
Flowing, gently guiding
Ribbons and umbilicus
Where we still laugh and wish
