Here’s a new poetry challenge I thought I’d have a go at.
Thanks to Yves at Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie for the introduction:

“So the challenge was to write 1 one letter word, 2 two letter words and so on. I couldn’t make anything sensible but it was still fun =)”

Am Me,
Two for One
Only live life free:
Taken alone, shaky, stiff, afraid,
Crying, singly, lonely, poetry awaken senses:
Welcome cuddles, holding closely, embrace beloved partner.

Oh boy, tough! How did I do?

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    It makes sense , first your one, then you meet someone,you are afraid on your own, together you both are strong , celebrating each other.
    Well that’s how I see it 💜

  2. I think you did an excellent job! You created a meaningful poem that actually makes sense =) It is tough isn’t it?

  3. Sadje says:

    You did very well.

  4. Wonderful poem! It does seem to be a tough challenge! Way to go👏🏻👏🏻

  5. What Willow said works for me and I think that you nailed this Di.

    I’d say a great first try

    It DID make sense! You should try a Rhopalic verse – each word has an increasing number of syllables in each line… Sort of the same thing but has more flexibility… the Greeks were all about it!

    Excellent. I mis-read the rules, but found it to be a fun challenge just the same.
