Here's a challenge for everyone:

1. Get out a dictionary, and find an unusual or common word or phrase that begins with "A".

2. Write a poem based on that word. Let your imagination fly, please! I want to see what everyone can come up with. DO NOT PUT YOURSELF IN A BOX! I want to see unboxed creativity!

I would personally like to get to each of the letters - but the best place to start is probably at the beginning, so at the beginning let's begin!

Brezee, post it in Open Poetry, where everybody can read it...

I think the challenges themselves have sprung from Pandora's box...

LOL...

Ok, Ben, I'm game, as soon as I light upon Serenity's current challenge, I'm back for yours!

Here's mine, with a common word that I use the meaning of all the time, in one of my favorite forms, too. So, I'm surely not "out of the box". HaHa!!

You all did well, and met the challenge in your own style. I liked each poem very much!
