  1. This is something that I wrote when I was just starting my site and had 2 hits (one was from adeeyoyo – awesome). The Quandary awaits.

  2. Quandary: knowing when to hold back, let go

    Have a great weekend all 🙂

    I was just writing an entry and published it when I noticed you had issued Quandary: “a state of doubt or uncertainty”. Somewhat relevent post thought:

    This fits so neatly into what I’ve been thinking about. Thanks for the prompt.
    Crossroads/Quandry: Reversal

  5. Icarus flew higher and higher for his dreams, so how far will I go?

  6. I’m on the Island now. I’ll be over to visit you too!

    I don’t mean to be a nag about process, but does anyone else like Mr. Linky? I can click around much faster with him.

      Hi Elise – Not a fan of Mr. Linky. It is too impersonal, and does not allow a posting poet/writer to leave a relevant personal comment directly with their link post (like you did here) – nor does it allow visiting readers the opportunity to make a direct reply to link post of the posting poets/writers (like I did here).

      Mr. Linky is the fast-food “McDonalds” approach. Here on Writer’s Island, as on the “Big Tent Poetry” site, we prefer a more personable, leisurely, interactive experience.

      Besides, what’s the hurry? When you leave the link post to your work, relax and scroll down to enjoy all the comments. Then check the Notify me of new posts via email box and you will be notified directly when poets/writers leave new links to new work — very efficient and convenient.

  7. An excellent prompt – thanks. My poem catches a man at a time of choice – justice, not revenge. Please click on my name above.

  8. went for this feeling we all feel sometimes, in the end we have to just carry on, but we are allowed to nag a bit, it is only human to
