Getting back into the flow of writing, mostly with wordplay and poems. I'm a creative soul, from childhood to middle age, and my joy is to produce new things the world has never seen before. I'm an educator from the USA working as a college professor of lit and music. I'm learning to love myself little by little.
Some love a challenge; others choose
To wield a tool that's quick to use.
But as for me, I want a prompt,
Some sylvan glade where no one's romped
Before--a snowy field to mark up
And love the night, then give the dark up.
I shun the the less-resistant road!
I think, in this case, there's some code
That must be written 'fore the party
Can commence here at Ficlatte,
In terms of challenges to meet
And chances, therefore, to compete
And please the challenger with wit
Or drama, or the lack of it.
I'm not complaining. Oh, dear! No.
I simply long for seeds to grow
Inside a snug communal pot
Where roots can mingle gladly. Not
A rowdy bustle, but instead,
A forum where we, head to head,
Can share our notions, share a laugh,
And feel at home, writers and staff.
If anyone will offer me
3 random English words, I'll see
If I can bring them gently to
A single tale or verse for you.
So, any takers? Who's got words
To tease the talent of this nerd's?
Have you got game? If so, come on!
The challenge day's about to dawn.
No prequels yet. Why not write one?
No sequels yet. Why not write one?
