  1. Good prompt. Hope I did it justice.

  2. Sorry. I’m new to this so I didn’t know if I should type the URL with the comment. Just in case, I’ll list it here.
    There. One of these should work. 🙂

    • Berowne, I’m new to your work. This was startling, haunting, powerful. Unfortunately, I couldn’t leave a comment on Blogger without the Captcha widget turned on (I’m WordPress), so I’ll say it here… my ex-mom-in-law survived Auschwitz and escaped to the forest during a march to Bergen Belzen. Your take on this prompt was a potent reminder of politics in its worst form, and a reminder to us all that Glenn Beck’s first inspirational reading was “Mein Kampf.”

  3. Haven’t been for a while but some festive memories sprang to mind … lovely prompt :o)

  4. It’s nice to be back on the island. Here’s my piece:
    Peace to all,

  5. Logging in this week, yay! I did enough packing last night to afford some time to my muse… hope you’re ready to rock! Peace, Amy

    PS I’ll be back “in full force” come February after our move to Madison, WI. Any other Wisconsonites here? Come visit and give me contact info; I plan to join the poetry society there…!

    Did you know there’s going to be a full lunar eclipse for the solstice?


  7. Brace yourselves! I really don’t get haikus, so I decided to just try one myself. Not quite sure yet what to make of the experience but glad to have just given it a go 😉
