Day 11 Prompt (yikes we are headed to the 1/2way mark)
Use these words: key, slipper, marigold, frosting, bookmark, alive
Write a poem where you embed words that rhyme with the words above. In other words, do not use the rhmes at the ENDS of lines, but somewhere in the body of the poem. I have bolded the rhymers. Note that not every rhymer is at the end of a line.
Paying attention is key
to success. For me, listening
is like a bookmark, a place
of remembering, a small
lark on a branch or a marigold
you picked for your beloved.
Listening is not old hat, it is fresh
because what you hear comes alive
when you let the words thrive in your mind
for just a bit, then set them free
to grow into a poem, or a promise.
Now you try it.
