Grab a cup of tea or coffee (oh what the heck, get a danish too!) and sit a spell. You might want to grab your notebook and pen because you never know when you will be inspired to write down a quote, or jot down a poem of your own. Words are like that, they take you on a journey and the next thing you know you are breathing life into your own magical world of words.

Heart level Listening

I had a difficult time with this one.  Every word that hit the page sounded, preachy. Sometimes all you can do is let the words fall where they may. And sometimes you pull something from the past because it is fitting for how your feeling.

Listening - An Acrostic

Leaning in to hear every word.

I feel my heart opening as the words sink in.

So many feelings rushing through my body.

Transforming me at a molecular level.

Every word mingled with my breath.

Nestled together, words move between us.

Intellect & emotions, stimulating senses.

Now the conversation is coming to a close.

Gingerly folding words into our hearts.

Head on over to OctPoWriMo for poetry prompts, visit the participants, and share word love along the way.

  1. Morgan,

    You always amaze me. Excellent writing! And you used the prompt, mine is WAAAAAAAY to weird an VERY random. Love ya, Babe!

    1. Thanks, Cindy! Glad you're writing along with us again this year! I didn't think your's was weird at all. Seriously though, we should say hi during other times of the year. =D


  2. I too had a tough time following the prompt. I could manage a haiku. I loved this acrostic. Listening can be therapeutic :)

  3. I really like this - acrostics just beg to be printed out and framed. I too have had some challenges with the prompts. My muse is being a bit of a petulant child, demanding mango and angel cake for dinner instead of the bowl of verdant green leave words. Such is the writing life - I am so grateful for this challenge! Thanks


Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
