A & I Poetry Challenge: Last week of August


Poetry Challenge – August prompt closing soon

Contributions for August close soon. Publish a blog post with your poem before 30th August if you wish to be included in the round-up for August:

Write a Heart Poem:

This might be a poem with lines written in the shape of a heart, or a poem about love, getting to the heart of a problem, about folks wearing their hearts on their sleeves, or someone showing a lot of heart in competitions.

Post on your blog on or before 30th August 2018 to be included in the link-backs.

The prompt is merely a suggestion and any topic is welcome.

Here is Amanda’s contribution for August:


When You Leave

My heart does dream of only you,

it has no time or rudder.

Until your touch is felt again,

that longing makes me shudder.

Your trust you gave implicitly

I will not lie or tease,

for in between life’s dark and light,

It ‘s you I long to please.

    • Dankie vir die omgee, ek waardeer dit! Ek het my 11 kinders se storieskryf deadline wat maak dat ek net een ding op my brein het en dit is. Tik, tik, tik, Hul het elk 4 stories geskryf. Dan kom voorblad, inhoud en inleiding voordat storie kom. Gister het ek Trompie veearts toe gevat vir x-strale want hy pieps steed bloed. Hy het blaasstene, n hele hand amper vol. Hy word vanoggend geopereer en kom eers Donderdag weer huistoe. Is maar bekommerd oor die brak! Verder gaan dit darem okay!

  1. There are a few poems coming in this week! I am looking at prompts for next month at the moment. Do you have an idea of what we might choose, Ineke?
