This is a prompting Blog

My intent here is to write a poem from the prompt I give to you , the reader, in hopes that it will inspire something and get others to write with me.

Today's Prompt is

Write a Butterfly cinquain which consists of a nine-line syllabic form with the pattern two, four, six, eight, two, eight, six, four, two. It is made to be centered, so that the words form a butterfly... you may use any subject...OURS IS

Maybe shorter
But the work must go on
so the project gets completed
and as
the final touches are in place
the gentle sunlight fades
but happily
it's done

    Do them when you can... just happy to inspire someone !!
