From sleep’s soft silence
Come vibrant violet visions
Bonjour Chers lecteurs,
I sort of failed miserably at the last writing course offered by Blogging U. So I am trying again. This time the subject is poetry. I love poetry, even if I’m too dense to “get it” sometimes. I decided I’d at least try my hand at it, and it gives me some prompts for writing, some ways to kind of get my blog “back on track” so to speak. I’ve been seriously lacking energy recently, and my poor blog has taken the brunt of it.
Anyway, for this course they are giving out 10 “assignments” each containing a word prompt, a poetic form, and a poetic device. They’ve left it up to us to use these or not, mix and match, or whatever. This is my answer to day 1 (see…I’m already a day behind in publishing, but I promise I was thinking about this on the actual “day 1.” )
I always welcome criticism, the idea of this is to learn to write poetry. So don’t be shy, go ahead and be ruthless if you’d like to be. The current background photo on my screen is the inside of an amethyst geode, so that’s how I used “screen” and came up with what you see above!
à bientôt !
