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. 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.
