Thank you everyone for stopping by and participating today.  Do not forget that Wednesday Toni will be featuring another wonderful prompt for us.  We would love for you to come back and participate then as well.  April is National Poetry Month and many of you will be doing NaPoWriMo, so all these prompts in the blogosphere will be another way to spark your muse and write on!
Have fun everyone!

Wednesday Muse #1

Hello. Welcome to the first Wednesday Muse. This will be a series of word prompts rather than picture prompts. I thank Carrie for so graciously sharing her blog with me.

To give you a little background, my name is Toni Spencer and I specialize in Japan and Japanese prompts. But not always. Today I am going to introduce you to an easy peasy form known as the gogyoshi. The poem consists of exactly five lines. No syllable counting, no content requirements , No rhythm or rhyme requirements. Just...five lines. Isn't that easy?

The Japanese are into the seasons, change, and something called mono no aware (mo•no ah•wah•ray.  It means, sadness or wistfulness at the passing of things. If you want to use this or the spring as a theme for your poem, please do.

I hope you enjoy this first Wednesday Muse. I look forward to meeting you all.
