I dunno if I'm horribly late, but I was just inspired, by letter 'A'. *starts writing madly*

On 2nd thought, I'm inspired by 'D' too. Maybe I'll take a double challenge! *claps hands* Time to set sail. (FYI, I always refer to sitting down and writing as setting sail into the land of magic and fantasy, where words live to paint pictures. The sea of inspiration, the ship of writers, pure and true- ok, enough rambling. )

Wind, I just have a question? I don't quite understand. If, I write about the letter "F", do I use both "Climbing A Mountian" and "Physical Pain" in the same story or poem? Or, are they two seperate things to write about?

each star is one attribute of each poem. Use all of the stars, or use a few if you just needed inspiration

E. running, "a mistake worth making"

here goes it...

"Running Away"

She packs her bags,
she's leaving again and
she sighs at the sight of him.

The pancakes are cold in the kitchen
and they're out of syrup,
just like they're out of milk,
out of bacon,
out of love.

She packs her bags,
running away again,
she cries at the sight of him.

He was a mistake worth making,
but when the rent is due
and there's no money,
and she's eating cold toast in the kitchen
with no honey,
she's fallen out of love with him.

She's running away.


This has randomly fallen out of my brain...Yay, challenges are something to do during Study Hall.....

I loved that poem! Bread without honey (shudders)

But words will break my heart"

Ok so I'm late: BUT! I was inspired by D.

here goes noting:

the wind prevails her sword
what she means is pen
drops of oceans fly onto the white paper
alone they float in and out
of the letters
little black boats
in this there is a howl outside
is this not what you expect
she screams
so typical
and runs
again typical
into the dark halls way
her dear letter clutched in her fingers
she falls
expected?
and it is torn in half
her whole life gone
or about to be anyway
she screams
all because of a letter
the phone rings
and you'll never know what happens

Morning mist clings to my face, and my soul opens up to you......

Riley, that was good. Did you give my "Don't Waste a Word" challenge a try? That one was my favorite

Never be normal!
