Daily Prompt – JusJoJan the 31st, 2023

LindaGHill is here again in my email and she is very excited, she had this to say: “And, it’s a wrap! Today is our thirty-first prompt for Just Jot it January 2023. This month has felt like the longest month ever, and yet it’s flown by. I won’t say too much here because I want to leave some for tomorrow’s wrap up post. But what do you say we finish this thing with a flourish?

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 31st 2023, is “write.” Use the word “write” any way you’d like. Have fun!

If you’d like to see what I have so far on your prompt list and what’s to come, you can find it HERE.

I write because it keeps me alive
because it is the one thing I have that is mine and mine alone and unless they remove my brain or fingers it will always will be.
I write because there is so much inside my head screaming to get out. So much so that I have removed so many earlier posts about me and pain, worries and family because they really were not for publication.
Amazingly what started as therapy as I learned to walk again after breaking my back the second time hasn’t it turned into something quite different. Hopefully it has grown as I have and is no longer a pity party…Oh! I do hope so!
I write because I have met so wonderful people and they have given me strength… Thank you all so much.
I write because I want to!

Well done everyone we did it 💜💜💜

#TankaTuesday Weekly Poetry Challenge No. 305, 1/31/23


短歌 火曜日


This week Colleen suggests we try Random word poetry. Which is something that Jane Dougherty started writing last year. Colleen said : “I think this is a great way to find inspiration, so let’s try it.

Below, I’ve generated a list of 100 random words. The idea is to read through the words, searching for a word that sparks your inspiration.

Then, choose no less than three words to use in your poem.

You can use as many words as you’d like, but at a minimum—you must use three words from the list. This is a great time to experiment with freestyle or free verse poetry (defined on the cheat sheet).

If you write a free verse or freestyle poem, please include a syllabic form to accompany it. That means you’ll write two poems. Have fun making connections between the two forms.

I chose to write an Abhanga. The Abhanga a poem in any number of 4-line stanzas with 6-6-6-4 syllables each. L2 and L3 rhyme. The end rhyme scheme is abbc. It is customary to title your poetry.

These are the words I chose *Rambunctious *maddening *dysfunctional * rampant *sashay *bizarre
*Quicksand *unruly* hurl *walk *capricious *innocent *voyage
“mayhem *push *clocks *trap *brick *carry *safe

The child

That child is maddening
Rambunctious slight of hand
Quicksilver and quicksand
Slipping your grasp.

Unruly they hurl past
Dysfunctional they say
They don’t walk they sashay
Lion rampant.

Capricious and bizarre
They’re still an innocent
Their voyage mayhem bent
Still but a dream.

Don’t push them to watch clocks
Don’t trap or brick them up
Their spirits need such luck
Carry them safe
