Hello, everyone. Orion has left the ground and is getting ready to run through a couple of exercises, before taking off on its own to make a different kind of poetry. I can tell you that having the pre-launch chatter and the live video is quite addicting. Shall we investigate one of our addictions?
Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie The prompt that caught my eye this week is the one asking us to embody the meaning of the Korean word ‘won’.

The information is within this particular prompt.

At The Music In It: Adele Kenny’s Poetry Blog, Adele has Diane Lockward as a guest prompter. Diane’s focus is language, our choice of words when writing, and she has a gorgeous poem to use as an example. The prompt looks like fun, a bit of work, but fun. Go on over.
I am struck anew at how clever some of the limericks are at Mad Kane’s Humor Blog. I defy you to not enjoy writing a good limerick. One advantage to writing a limerick, or two, is they are short. You can post them in comments on the blog, or on Mad Kane’s Facebook page. Go over and check it out, to read and laugh, and maybe write.
Magpie Tales has Bond of Union, by Escher. I adore anything Escher and this one is open to several possibilities. Head over.

Fireblossom, at imaginary garden with real toads wants us to really play. She wants us to try a mashup of a different sort. Can you say, Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter? Go play with the toads.

We’re meeting the bar over at dVerse with Tony Maude who wants us to look at buzzwords and jargon. Go on over to read what he says. They’re friendly folks at the Bar, so stick around for some conversation.

Happy writing, everyone.
