( written for W3 Prompt #79: Wea’ve Written Weekly )
I loved you….
Was, for a reason
Love is worship…
Follow your conviction religiously.
Good evening and till next time…
Welcome to our W3 Poetry Prompt, which goes live on Wednesdays at The Skeptic’s Kaddish.
You may click here for a fuller explanation of W3; but here’s the ‘tldr’ version:
The main ingredient of W3 is a weekly poem written by a Poet of the Week (PoW), which participants read before participating in the prompt.
The second ingredient is a writing guideline (or two) provided by the PoW. Guidelines may include, but are not limited to: word counts, poetic forms, inclusion of specific words, and use of particular poetic devices.
After five days, when the prompt closes, the PoW shall select one participant’s poem as the W3 prompt for the following week, and its author becomes the next PoW.
Simple enough, right?
Okie dokie ~ Let’s do this thing!
I. The prompt poem:
‘Openings’, a ‘dectina refrain’ poem by D. Avery
Awe opens heart’s window wide to wonder Beauty rushes in on pulsing wings of life Creations great and small light on this open heart’s window ledge Here limned miracles begin their flight Awe opens heart’s window wide to wonde
II. Deanna’s prompt guidelines
- Write a “Septolet” that refers to something that is held, something that one might hold.
The Septolet is a poem consisting of exactly seven lines containing exactly fourteen words with a break anywhere in between the two verses. Both verses deal with the same thought and create a picture.
