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 =)”

I
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! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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?

    You did very well.

  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.
