365 Creativity Project-Day 251

Journal entry:

Journal 9-16-20120001

The poem today is in answer to the prompt at The Sunday Whirl. The words in italics were given there. This was not easy, but you might enjoy the challenge, so by all means visit that site.

More Than An Exterior

The lilting pattern
Of alliteration brings
The lyric to life
In rich sensuous tones of
Voice filled with artist color.

The exterior
With silent tresses flowing
Appears to peering
Eyes just slightly beautiful
When seen in deep silhouette.

The words saunter by
Leaving pleasant echoes in
Ears fully focused
On the beguiling accents
Of every delicious line.

The poet reasons
The self is not important
Only the verses
Have true meaning shining bright
To illuminate the dark.

The finely tuned words
Marching across fields of white
Capture the essence
Of imaginative thought
And great creativity.

Preemies…

I am grateful:

1.   I woke up fairly early despite staying up very late.
2.   I enjoyed my Oreo cookies for breakfast.
3.   I crushed two bags of cans and will soon have enough to recycle.
4.   Leigh came to get our trash and visited a while.
5.   Penny has eaten well today.

I hope your Sunday has been relaxing and enjoyable. I have taken it easy, but I chose to create. I urge you to put your imagination to work. Use your creativity to make something beautiful.

As a prompt write about an occasion when your resourcefulness saved the day. You probably give yourself little credit for day to day rescues, but take time to think about it. If you use this prompt, please leave a link to your work in the comments below.

Thank you so much for reading my blog entry. If you have thoughts, suggestions, or criticism, please leave a comment.

Always,
Jo Ann

    Nice poem, Jo Ann. I like the idea of the poet believing that they are not as important as the words they share. Well done.

      Thank you Brenda. The words will far outlast the poet, and can reach where it is not possible for the poet to go. I am humbled by the reach words can have. I am glad you liked the poem.

    Very nice response to the Sunday Whirl Jo Ann. What a lovely hospital, and they seem to have a sense of humour. I’m glad you had some knowledge and were ok with your truck. You know, that reminds me, both my girls took a mechanic course in high school because they felt it would be a good life skill.

      Thank you Veronica. The place is beautiful. I am glad I knew to stop and check the fluids. I took the truck to the dealership and there seemed to be nothing serious wrong, so I was relieved. Being the daughter of a mechanic and married to three mechanical guys, I learned a lot over the years. I can at least hold my own in conversations and know a little.
