And here's the challenge...

Go write a poem, any poem...don't care about style, format, form, meter, rhyme, whatever...

but your LAST word...

has to be the FIRST word in your NEXT poem.



So, my last poem was a small senryu...and the last word used was "adrift".  Hence, that will be the beginning of the NEXT poem.

Now...do it!  

And just leave the link to it here...

well... no link, but a quick write in itself  
--------------

adrift is
running away from me
at a healthy rate of
3 miles per minute
you just need to guess
whereabouts will it be
in an hour

my guess is adrift
will have drifted away
farther by one-hon-and-80

and that in degrees being
an about-turn
(from the direction
that you are headed in)
is what I keep wishing
that you would make
and come back to me

that is when adrift
will have returned to zero

--------------

.... so I guess the next one can start with zero  

meanwhile, do I get any points?

You always get points with me, Sudhir...LOL...

now, what am I supposed to write about, now that you've used my very last word?

Oh heavens...

now I shall have to fret, worry, and stew...

well....

zero hour

zero cents in my pocket
and millions in the bank

zero velocity
is what I have,
stuck in time and place

... there you go... 3 times zero starts now stew

and ENJOY

p.s. my brain seems to be in dynamic mode like a dynamo of a electric motor... and that could be irritating, for many

that's the first, so the last word is "place" (as is the end of sudhir's!)

will write something and come back...

"more than yesterday, less than tomorrow, i love you"

Here goes, i've had fun keeping th first words relatively equal:

Place your hand in mine,
As we mimic the hay children,
And their frilly skirts from la Redoute.

As you watch, your corduroy trousers mud,
And I know they watch us, a picture of
Perfect siblings, swinging along the mud track.

track me down
from these
tropic meadows
where light lives
camouflaged
while unfiltered clouds
hang about
waiting to pour
their heavy
hurt

clouds - -
they have so much time
and nothing better to do
than bear their mighty presence
upon me

track me down
from this puzzle
then
set me free

.....

LOL...Suddie, my friend....

read my beginning post.  These are supposed to be YOUR last word from YOUR poems....then taking the last word of your most current poem and ... heh ... doing it again!

but I sure do appreciate that you can take a word and wrap it around your pen so very well!
