Once, or: Twice

A limerick

Stop pulling my leg, lest you miss the boat.
The fat lady ended on a very high note!
Two peas in a pod? Sure, that's real...
Two birds with one stone? No big deal...
But just twice in a blue moon we get oats!

d’Verse poetics prompt: Naming the rose

At d’Verse, poets were encouraged to choose one โ€”or moreโ€“ of the names of different kinds of roses from the list below for use in a poem OR as a title for a poem. For this prompt, poets may write in any style or form; and their poems do not have to be about roses or flowers.

  • Absent Friends
  • Absolutely Fabulous
  • A Whiter Shade of Pale
  • Bobby Dazzler
  • Boule de Neige
  • Juliaโ€™s Kiss
  • Leaping Salmon
  • Pretty Jessica
  • Purple Tiger
  • Sylvia
  • Twice in a Blue Moon

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!
