Mind Games

Marionettes, 2 puppets on a string

Some live daily

Like a puppet on a string

Just playing life’s game

Senryu

“Until you realize how easily it is for your mind to be manipulated, you remain the puppet of someone else’s game.”

NaPoWriMo 2018 Day 16

prompt for the day asks you to write a poem that prominently features the idea of play. It could be a poem about a sport or game, a poem about people who play (or are playing a game), or even a poem in the form of the rules for a sport or game that you’ve just made

Life’s harsh reality shows

Recreation is just a word

Many Cities and Towns are facing a growing number of Homeless RV’ers


NaPoWriMo 2018 Day 4

Today, we challenge you to write a poem that is about something abstract – perhaps an ideal like “beauty” or “justice,” but which discusses or describes that abstraction in the form of relentlessly concrete nouns.

Adjectives are fine too! Concrete details like those can draw the reader in and let them imagine the real world where your abstract ideal or feeling happen

Writer’s Question

Speak, Listen

Write every day.

I must have a lot to say.

Does anyone read?

Senryu

Many of us wonder this I am sure.

Though I don’t write to receive feedback it is always appreciated.

Thank you for reading my poems and all the likes and comments you’ve posted over the years. 😊

A Tribute to Billy Graham

Billy Graham

After a long time

As a good and faithful servant

His Lord said “Well done”

Senryu

Written I honor of Billy Graham’s entrance into the joy of his Lord today at the age of 99.

His lord said unto him,

Well done, good and faithful servant;

thou hast been faithful over a few things,

I will make thee ruler over many things:

enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Matthew 25:21
