Maujaq (Photo Prompt Monday)


Pristine maiden snowfall
joyously yielding
crystalline aisles of abandon
Impulsive ….. yet confident gait
hastening wintertide nickers of
….. Freedom …..

    Love what you did with this photo prompt!

    • I really look forward to Kirsten’s Monday Photo prompts – and sometimes skip lunch just to write down my first thoughts …INSTANTLY!

        Hmmmm….methinks there is more to this, is there a Director’s Cut you want to share? A dragon skipping lunch is a serious thing indeed 🙂

        • Sometimes lunch defers to poetry! Especially on Mondays for Kirsten’s Photo Prompt – go with first images and gut instincts – and the first 3 words that come to mind!

            Excellent practice, I am sure it stretches and exercises your imagination. You seem to excel at this exercise. I have done the last two challenges but only because I have had the time. For me, Mondays are not great days to be creative. LOL, neither are Tue-Fri! 😉

            • Summers are fun and busy for me! Remember – I took last June to February of this year .. OFF, from WP because I was having so much fun! I recall you did the timed poetry exercise, the same one I did at ‘Poetry Camp’ recently! THAT is challenging!

                I actually do that frequently with short poems. See how fast I can come up with something. Helps when I have little time to write, although the quality suffers! BUT, sometimes that one single phrase that leaps to mind is just…perfect…as it stands! And that is the best feeling in the world for “instinctive poets”.

                • I just submitted my Ya-Du to Kirsten and it DEFINITELY was not quick! It was very challenging! In fact, I have 2 versions as I kept changing my mind … and making mistakes. Basically a singular and plural version! I read an interesting article about The Little Prince and the famous phrase ‘What is essential is invisible to the eye.” and the many versions it went through! So fast IS good .. when I am doing poetry .. while on lunch!!!!! LOL!

                    Do I get a peek at the Ya-Du? I submitted as well, and yes I had to change it around again and again WITH Thesaurus and rhyming dictionary help! But I did it, although I ALMOST sent one that was incorrect, caught it on the submission form and had to pull out a little more of my hair to correct it! THEN, the next day I realized I STILL sent one that was incorrect, had a coronary but managed to pull the perfect rhyming word to save the entire poem! WHEW! I could only manage one stanza, but I like the finished product. You show me yours and I will show you mine. LOL 🙂

                    I had never heard of this book, but the article was very interesting. Flashes of inspiration only go so far, and it was interesting reading the choices this author made for his signature phrase. Just proves that one can re-work a piece in stages and not ruin it.
