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.

One Stop Poetry Form Monday


Love me not for the morning sun
touching the nights fallen dew
Love me not for the gifts of song
morning dove's sing for you

Love me not for the starry nights
their glitter shines in dreams
Love me not for the vast oceans
glaciers or mountain streams

Love me not for the air you breathe
freshness after the rain
Love me not for the tall trees shade
stillness to ease your pain

Love me as you would love yourself
and keep one thing in mind
The love you give returns again
for we are all entwined

Many thanks to
You inspire me in many ways !



  1. Very nice. Well painted, if you see what I mean.

  2. Dang I keep getting distracted by the cat!! Lovely form Hun x

  3. whoa! I had to read and reread this one just out of pure pleasure. love the religous overtones, that of the great maker talking, whether intentional or not on poet's part.

    you paint an awesomely beautiful picture and outside of rough meter

    (simple fixes most as in the line "LOVE me as you would LOVE yourSELF" three stresses would be fixed with simple "LOVE me AS you'd LOVE yourSELF")

    in some of the lines, a job well-done. I'm grateful you've put so much effort into my favorite form :)

    I'd vowed not to crit in comments, but y'all, all who've put forth such effort, have given so much to work with :)
