Poetry Wednesdays (Launch)

I used to write poetry almost every day, and often several times a day.

I’m trying to get back to that, even if I’m “just” writing a haiku.

Starting today, One Story Slinger is launching Poetry Wednesdays. Every Wednesday I’ll post a new poem I’ve written. I hope to eventually host contests for Poetry Wednesday – and readers like you can submit your poems for the post. I’d love to set the post up so that readers can judge instead of just me… It’s a work in progress while I sort that out.

In the meantime, enjoy today’s haiku:

gold clipped angel wings for earrings

Liberty’s Dance by Carolynne Keenan

She clipped her wings free,

But danced in silent slumber.

Forever? A lie.

flowers on concrete

Daily Writing Prompt #18.13

Use the above image to write a flash fiction piece (less than 1000 words). Why are these flowers growing here in what looks like concrete? Or were these flowers part of a fallen bouquet? Perhaps your narrator clipped these flowers and tossed them in the wind; they ended their journey here, on the sidewalk.

Optional: write an accompanying poem, haiku or song.

Happy Writing!
