d’Verse is taking a break for the holidays so there won’t be any prompts for a while…

So I’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 d’Verse satisfies my creative curiosity more than well enough – and I don’t want to spend all of my time responding to poetry prompts.

  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.

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

    1. I’m glad you’ve selected your gem, Angela πŸ™‚

      I felt like going on and on, but six felt like a reasonable place to stop.

      Thank you,
      David

    1. Thanks, Dwight πŸ™‚

      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!

      -David
