dโ€™Verse is taking a break for the holidays so there wonโ€™t be any prompts for a whileโ€ฆ

So Iโ€™ll be trying out a few new forms with prompts born of my mind instead!

I considered the idea of responding to prompts from other groups, but dโ€™Verse satisfies my creative curiosity more than well enough โ€“ and I donโ€™t want to spend all of my time responding to poetry prompts.

    1. Thanks, Dwight ๐Ÿ™‚

      On the one hand, they’re simple to write… on the other hand, every word counts, which makes me think about which ones I want to use!

  1. I like them all, but perhaps “writer~reader” is my favorite. Well, I hope you enjoy the holidays with your loved ones.

  2. Small, glittering, extremely precious gems,
    Diamonds in the rough (common euphoric expression for underlying brilliance)
    Rocks, crystal and clear,
    Rhinestone sequins, an impressive array of diamante –
    Woven reflections, penned on a poet’s blank designer page.
    In preparation for distinctly ornated and embellished literary garments
    Originals, Coming our way.
