It’s been several weeks since I have done these. My apologies for the delay. For the last Poetry Challenge, if you remember I had changed things up and decided to just make it for fun, so there is no longer a true competition…just an offer of a prompt for poetry without the competing. As it turned out, there was only one submission from Maggie. Here it is, and thank you to Maggie!!
Skystone Creation (a rispetto)
A legend chimes some truth and my bell rings.
I feel the depth of turquoise, watch it shine
its message, and I love the song it sings.
What treasure it communicates. How fine
its healing message. Look upon my hand
and see the turquoise circle, small but grand,
that I wear in a ring. It moves my heart,
and with it I know I will never part.
For the Name That Abstract #14, I have derived the name from Maggie’s entry, “O’Keefe Cornflower”. I love Georgia O’Keefe’s paintings, by the way. Her flowers are beautiful! I just shortened the name to “Cornflower”. Thanks, Maggie…and thanks for all the entries submitted. They are listed below, for you to use your favorite(s) as a prompt for the new Poetry Challenge. :)
Here is the list of names you can choose from for your poetry. I look forward to reading your submissions!

Here is my poem. I chose Sandy‘s entry, After the Loving, for a simple sedoka.
After the loving
Rose colored glasses turn to blue
But beauty grows in the midst
I will be putting up another Name That Abstract for you sometime later today, so keep an eye out for it! And remember that there is no deadline for the Poetry challenges. You can keep writing poems now as much as you wish, and with as many of the prompts as you wish. I would still appreciate it if you’ll post them below, or link them below, and link this post on ones that you post on your own page. Thanks!!
Love and blessings,
