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.

Triple Tuesday

Today we are catching up with blogs we follow as well as doing our own prompt... here we go...
Gratituesday's Challenge this week is an ACROSTIC
Why I'm Grateful for My Blogging Experience.
Growing friendships from afar
Recognizing exactly who they are
Appreciation for their shining star
Touching some with words we write
Increasingly gaining much delight
Thankfulness you follow our site
Unabridged affection for all of you
Deeply involved in your writing too
Entangled in what our blogs can do
Thanks to Lisa for this wonderful prompt
join up with us on her blog @
We missed OSP prompt yesterday, which was a rondel
It seems once more we write of Spring
her beauty can not be contained
we marvel at the joy she brings
she bursts with life, so unrestrained
English ivy to arbors cling
reaching for heights, hard to obtain
and so once more we write of Spring
for beauty can not be contained
So for the love of her we sing
for joys of Sun and warmth again
for flowers grown and knees grass stained
we marvel at the joy she brings
and so once more we write of Spring
Took a few liberties with this one, hope it is still fitting of the prompt...
Join OSP and link your poem , you will be glad you did !
Now for our prompt ...


A tanka is another poetry type related to the haiku. The first three lines are unrhymed. They have a syllable count of five, seven, five like the haiku. But the last two lines both have seven syllables. So the syllable count is: (5, 7, 5, 7, 7)
My unsung hero
you inspire the words I write
with warmth in your heart
more than love so deeply felt
I live for the love of you
 OK everyone there we go for today !! Remember to link up with our Mr linky feature and join in with Lisa and OSP as well.


  1. Wow! A busy day JL. Good stuff!

    I've lost Mr Linky!

  2. Yes I'd say busy indeed. You are amazing!

  3. a poem about me-I am in awe to say they least about your poetry and friendship.I treasure both beyond words.

  4. Great to see you addressing the rondel! A few liberties here and there with the structure, but the tone and treatment are all in keeping with the original intent of the poem, as an expressive lyrical form. Nice work!
