WOW.... ( Words of Wednesday)

Today is WOW.... ( Words of Wednesday) here at Dodge Writes, which means the blogs we follow are going to be crammed into two or more poems. If you are joining us today on this adventure please note it is not necessary for you to do these prompts this way, but we do hope you stop in at each of these wonderful sites. You will enjoy each of them

Today's Prompts are...
Here at Dodge Writes we are doing the Rondeau, which consists of thirteen lines of eight syllables, plus two refrains (which are half lines, each of four syllables), employing, altogether, only three rhymes. It has three stanzas and its rhyme scheme is as follows: (1) A A B B A (2) A A B with refrain: C (3) A A B B A with concluding refrain C. The refrain must be identical with the beginning of the first line.

Carry on Tuesday  This week, we have last words from Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell After all, tomorrow is another day. Use all or part of it within your poem or prose then leave the url of your piece with Mister Linky. A comment would also be appreciated.

One Stop Poetry  Post your poem, read the others and get read !!

LOL... is that enough ? Off we go.. OURS ARE...
I am worthy, for after all,
I'm a hero before the fall
Incensed at loves unfair ways
My eyes are damp, I cry always 
still I run to loves beckon call

Through the mud I skid and crawl
a chance of love or punching ball
it matters not for still I say
I am worthy...

and there I find within the squall
loves hand reaching, I am enthralled
saying tenderly, it's okay,
tomorrow is another day
these tears will fade, for after all,
I am worthy.

Three in one... WHEW !!!
AND... some prose...

Mother Nature...
You have superpowers beyond belief, you have the power of life itself, not to mention the elements that bend to your touch. I dont ask for any of your superpowers, for a mere human such as myself, the endless worries you must have would be more than I could take. 

Instead I would ask for just one moment to be given the power of a dragons flight. To feel the heat of the sun on my back and the cool of the wind on my skin. I would enjoy giving rides to any creature amoungst us, and would prove how wonderful dragons are.
No creature would fear me, for I would show all the love of life forever in that sweet moment... If only in dreams...see you there Mother.
Your Loving Child,

We hope you enjoyed todays prompts as much as we have... PLEASE link up with Mr. Linky here and at the other wonderful sites from today... Thank you for joining in !!

  8. I love "After All". :) Your stuff is always so great.

  9. Again, two excellent poems! The first really spoke to me, as I love writing that reaffirms our innate worthiness, in the face of a world which seeks to tear us down. The second poem with the lovely "flight of fantasy" delighted me, who would not like such a "superpower" and how much fun for all it would be! It made me smile just thinking about it!
