MY LOVE AFFAIR WITH… – PROMPT #74

The past two weeks we have explored our first experiences with falling in love, and with death. Both emotional prompts to say the least. If poetry is seeded in emotion, the “crop” that flourished in the last two weeks is abundant. But now we will shift our passion into a new kind of emotion.

“HOW DO YOU VIEW your life? – POETIC BLOOMINGS MEMOIR PROJECT

Part 9: My Love Affair With… – What is your obsession? What do you truly enjoy above all else? Write the passion that goes into your extra-curricular endeavors. What piques your interest? What would you love to try? What is your guilty pleasure? Tell us about it in all its poetic finery.

MARIE ELENA’S OBSESSION:  Obsessed?  Me? 😉

MY POOR HUSBAND (a double fibonacci)

Call
me
obsessed
with football,
but it only counts
for THE Ohio State Buckeyes
(both college and pro).
My widowed
husband
stands
by.

WALT’S DIVERSION:

ALWAYS LIKE A SONG

Poetry, you are the lyrics of my life
sung to a melody of my own composing.
Supposing I was without that tune, would I
just as soon be without my words; be less expressive?
And would each successive note fall flat?
If that were the case, this place would be a dull dance,
rhyming zombies in a static trance. But my romance
with music sustains me, it trains me to write
and right or wrong, this life ain’t much to start,
without a song in my heart.
