Today's Prompt is BOOK OF LOVE

Today is Chapter two in the book of love.
Here is how it goes...

Chapters                         Forms of poetry
1) Parents                     1) Tanka
2) Siblings                    2) 15 words or less
3) Spouse                     3) Crapsey Cinquain
4) Children                    4) Acrostic
5) Friends                     5) Flash 55
6) Pets                          6) English Sonnet
7) Self                           7) Free Verse

The rules are ...
Once you use a form you can not use it again, we are looking to have all seven forms used in the book.
Once you use a chapter you can not use it again, all the chapters must be used.
You may use any form with any chapter as long as you do not repeat them.
Bandit and I are doing ours in the order given for both the chapters and the form.
So our book of love looks like this

1) Parents   A Tanka poem
2) Siblings  15 words or less
3) Spouse   A Crapsey Cinquain
4) Children   An Acrostic Poem
5) Friends  in a Flash 55
6) Pets   An English Sonnet
7) Self    A Free Verse
15 words or less
A sisters love is
knowing all your
 dark secrets
but never
telling a single soul 

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 !
