  1. I just posted a new poem titled "The Complexity of Compassion", incorporating both the COT prompt and the for tomorrow's Blog Carnival.

  2. I could go no other way with the Yeat's line, than loooove. Sorry if a bit sappy this week!

  3. I thought I would write a Cento because each time I started reading the prompt I fell into a humming of "When I'm 64..."

    May my weaving do them both justice!

  4. Oh Julie I love the idea of a cento!
    This prompt took me in a dark direction.
