This poemlet is in response to a musical prompt, given us by Elizabeth, at Musical Notes. The shtick is that we may only use 15 words, or less. Talk about good practice for clarity.
Yep, no punctuation. I played a lot with line breaks and spacing. I would have liked to have the poem centered, but having tried the preformatting which is a bugger when you only want a part of the post preformatted, and not all, and having tried to centre with the WP thing, again having problems if I wanted only the poem and nothing else centered, I gave up.
If you haven’t tried this prompt, hurry over, listen to the song, and write… and post. Then read the others, which I am about to do. I look forward to similarities and diversity.
The bonus of this exercise is the music, where I am meeting old friends and making new, as in today’s offering: Natasha Bedingfield’s Unwritten.
