Note, or: Composition

A limerick

He finished his opus after working all night.
Thrilled, he very much wanted to share his delight.
Ah, to draft his sweet love a note!
Then, a lump rose up in his throat...
Bursting with music, he could nor speak nor write.

‘What do you see’ Prompt #143

For Sadje’s weekly #WDYS prompt, she offered the photo below as inspiration for writers to produce art.


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!

  1. A cunning Limerick! A form that challenges me! I’m not good with meter.
    I hope the composer gets his act together to get his love!! 😀
