We did a great job of writing challenge poetry from the phrase "in the moonlight shadows dancing".

How about starting a list of phrases here that writers can use in a poem?

Just keep adding phrases until we run out of rhyme or reason!


Here's my suggestion:


this is my house of passage

Good luck!

I'm so glad I discovered the challenges room! (I'm a little slow)

I've been toying with the phrase
"I am a ______ "(insert noun) for a few days and am curious to see if anyone can do anything with it.

"The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.

I can't think of a decent phrase, so I'm borrowing one that I read in one of Michael's poems...

Here's one that I've always kinda liked, although it does sound rather cliche. However, it's sometimes how I feel, lol.

"Owing my alegiance to no one"

"If history is to change, let it change. If the world is to be destroyed, so be it. If my fate is to die, I must simply laugh"
