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.

We're back !!

It has been a long and hard week for us, between work and my daily headaches I really haven't had the mind to write. But Bandit is insisting that I get it together and quit being selfish...tee hee hee... so finally having a day off and a ton of ibuprofen (6 so far today) here we are !!

To get back into the swing of things we are offering up the USE THESE WORDS Prompt... Todays words are WIDE-EYED, ADMITTEDLY, SHOVELFUL, BRAINWASHED, MASKED, FESTIVAL, PROTECTED, OVERWOUND, GAWKINESS, JOVIAL...The rules are you must use 8 of the 10 words as they are given in prose or poetry form... OURS IS...

My Poetry

My mind is overwound
with feelings that are masked
I live in wide-eyed wonder
jovial with each daily task
admittedly I'm simple
brainwashed by my rhyme
a festival of word play
protected in my mind
reason full of gawkiness
a shovelful of doubt
rhythum in my words
thats what poetry's about



  1. I love how you got those unlikely words to play together. :)

  2. Fabulously shared... I too enjoyed how you were able to bring this word-set together.

  3. Glad your back posting,can't rally do poetry myself but I really enjoy reading yours and what others have to say and write.

  7. Hello, I am Siggi and I am an artist/writer...and I am new to blogging. I have writen prose and poetry since grade school, almost 60 years, but not shared it...just for me. I am new to the computer...and don't know all the ins and outs of posting and other buttons on the screen...
    I enjoy the prompts and hope to contribute to various sites and hope others will visit mine as I learn and grow writing.....gads...all that and I didn't say how much I enjoyed reading your post. Will see what I can do with the words. Siggi in Downeast Maine
