Your Six Word Poems

Here are the poems I constructed using your collection of six-word lines. I had enough to make two poems.

1.
Bird song wakes the slumbering sun.

Fresh blossoms of hopeful new beginnings,
Would-be flowers exuberated beneath melting snow;
Winter whimpers at spring’s cheerful promise.

Breezes soft, nights cool, dreams aloft.
Sun, wind, water, sand, moon, tide;
Rainy day woolly clad comfortable ease.

Wind blows birds and cleanses me.
Breathing the breezes, winter is done.


2.
Spring brings change, but not enough.

Lawn to mow, golf to play;
Softball Sunday my knees are shot.

Spring nice, but I want summer!

Patio lunching, warmed by the sun,
Beloved late night cakes and friends.

Cherry blossoms blow away a lonesome
Wedding cake, mine too I hope.


I had fun doing this. I hope you did too! Thanks to everyone for participating.

How delightful. Makes me think there could be something here in terms of a novel... well, at the very least, a short story. Any takers?

I think my next project in this vein is going to be an ongoing story where everyone contributes sentences or paragraphs....need to work out the details, though.

This was great fun! I would have never thought random thoughts could be put together and fit so well.

Cool. I really do want summer to get here sooner, though. Hehe.
