WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM OUR FRIENDS – PROMPT #96

Time to resurrect a popular prompt. You know the drill. Take a line from one of another poet’s poems at POETIC BLOOMINGS and use it in your new poem. Be inspired by their piece of worded wonder and write the poem, remembering to attribute the poet and poem. Get by with a little help from our friends!

MARIE ELENA’S POEM:

VOICES

Unable to distinguish a thought
A voice
A word
A frame
A syllable
Alone in a sea of conversation 

“Alone in a sea of conversation” from Erin Kay Hope’s TRUE BRAVERY (Imagism form)

WALT’S POEM:

SNAPSHOTS

Visions secured in
heart tattoos of Technicolor.
Kodachrome kept
in the vault of your mind;
photographs with a memory.
Bringing joys long festered,
sequestered deeply within.
Sorrows of many lost
tomorrows preserved
in faces and places
of loves long gone.
And somewhere, there is
a flash of brilliance
illuminating the shadows.
Memories live in photographs.
