This week we bring back a very popular prompt here at CREATIVE BLOOMINGS. You are asked to use the inspiration from a favorite line from one of our poets’ poems. That becomes your title of first line of your new poem. Any form, style, length… just be sure to credit the poet/poem so they can say,
“HEY! THAT’S MY LINE!”
And as always, both the poet and the inspirational poet will receive the BLOOM if that new poem is selected.
MAY WE WALK IN PEACE
We come as poets
proffering words of hope and expression
the lessons we learn have burned themselves
into each other’s hearts and minds.
All for the cause of community,
a unity of blessed souls joined
in worded wonder. No animus
or vitriole, not wresting control
of another. Rhyming and sharing
as sisters and brothers of verse.
There is no better “army” than this.
And surely, there’s no worse!

The title is a line from Connie L. Peter’s poem “2014”
Two thousand fourteen
We come, sight unseen
For we know not what’s in store
The last year was kind
Please, have the same mind
As we all step through this door
Let great dreams come true
And trouble be few
Be gentle with the weather
May we walk in peace
May our joys increase
And hearts be knit together
You only need reference the poem and author. I posted Connie’s poem because I had the ability to do so. Walt.
