How about a piece, any form or format, which does not use the verb 'be' in any tense or form.  This includes the 'helper' aspect.  Have fun!

Noooo...just BE.  As in: am, are, is, was, were, be, been.  Merely one of the most prominant verbs out there.  Could have been worse.  Challenge could have been 'no articles' (a, an, the, and similar items).

Worry Lines


********
noticable lines of worry
have taken residence on my brow

just scars to remind my heart
in case I forget somehow

dark circles tell the story
of no sleep, and worried nights

shaky hands holding the pen
yet faithfully I write

the muse inside this soul
has withered and gone astray

just another story
that I can't share today

maybe some other time
when the clouds aren't so near

I will share the story
of exactly why I'm here



Choose to live, and love and all the in betweens.  Dry your eyes, and shelter your heart and let the pendulum swing.

Very good attempt, and I'm gonna go anal here since I can.  *insert persneckity aura here*  All was good until the end, when aren't (contraction of are and not) and I'm (contraction of I and am) were used.  *cackles and falls over in fits if evil glee*

Tima,

Just for you, I got around to doing something I have been wanting to do for ages.  I posted it here, in the poetry workshop (because it fits a bit more there than here):

Hope to see you giving it a go!

try free verse?

''In the streets of ecstasy the visions run,''

In the autumn of silence''

I keep a fragrance bottle my
muse gave me when I met him
in endless winter and he
settled me into remembering
who I am.

heres a challenge,,don't log on your pc for a week, 7 days,,,,,no business weeks , and go out in the world,,,that'll rattle the muse.

If home is where the heart is,,,,,I guess the corner bar is where the mind wanders off to

Thanks everyone...

Michelle... well, I work on my PC I operate a web design business and a few sites of my own.  So, to not log on, would be to abandon what I have put my heart into for nearly 4 years.  Great advice tho... and trust me... being home with 4 kids all the time is as real as it gets.

Sunshine... thanks a bunch, have been there before and forgot about it

Off to play
