Also, wanted to let you all know that the Wednesday Muse will be on hold for a while.  It will continue in the future.  Toni is taking a much deserved and needed break.  We will keep you posted on its return.

Wednesday Muse: The Beach

Howdy. It is Wednesday and I am musing. Actually, I am thinking about the beach, or the lake, or the river. I am thinking about September looming large over the horizon.  

Write about whatever floats your boat whatever the surface may be. Give me a poem about the ocean, the lake, the end of summer...make it sad, funny, wistful, climate change and the rising of the oceans - not any creatures in peril though. Write about walking in the surf, sitting on a pier, the blue of the water.  You get my drift. Write about love on the sand if you have a mind too. Boardwalks, sunburns, salt water taffy, the smell of french fries or fried clams.  It is up to you.

Comment on the other poets' works too. Just don't drop and run. Have fun with this prompt.

Wednesday Muse ~Cicadas!

Last week the prompt was butterflies. This week the prompt is cicadas. This time of year cicadas are sawing, buzzing, thrumming away.
To me this sound represents the sound of summer, the beginning of the end of summer. 

Cicadas in ancient times and cultures represented rebirth, renewal. Beautiful sculptures of colored jade, stone, wood were carved and are now in museums.

Write me a poem about the summer winding down. The last bounty of vegetables from the garden, the days getting shorter. Any signs you see or hear or feel in your part of the country. In just a few short weeks it will be September.

Write about rebirth and/or renewal if you would rather. Write both if you like! Write away! Link your poem to Mr. Linky and don't forget to visit the other poets. If someone comments on your poem, return the courtesy. This is how our community grows. Snd visit back later in the week!

Here is the sound of cicadas:

Wednesday Muse: Butterflies!

One word for you all today - butterflies.

A happy prompt, one of light and joy. We have so much nagativity and darkness in the world today, I thought I would give you all some hope and let you all return the favor.
