We wanted to share an awesome opportunity with all of our poets to try something new!
Don’t be frightened.
New is good.
And in this case, the “new” comes from one of our editors, and it’s far from new to her. Hastywords has become the Queen of poetic duets.
What’s a poetic duet?
According to Hasty:
Two people create one poem. There are no real rules except it is a collaborative process. Typically, one person starts and another continues and so on until both parties feel it is complete. Neither person knows the tone, the pace, nor the story until it is done. It is really quite beautiful.
So if you’d like to take advantage of an opportunity to write with one of our editors, pop on over to Hasty’s poetic duet’s page and check it out. Drop her a line. Create something amazing!
In the beginning the lines we draw around our lives serve to define and differentiate us, and then over time they come to limit and isolate us. To experience the relationships we were meant to experience with God or other human beings we must hug those lines and even be willing to cross over and color outside those very same lines.
We often draw lines in our lives, setting boundaries all in the name of trying to keep ourselves from being hurt. In the end they keep us from experiencing all that life as to offer. Free will allows us to be the artist of our lives and to create a life’s work that is uniquely us. We only reach that place of breakthrough when we move past what is comfortable, what is known, what is expected and into the absurd. We must allow the colors to run, to mingle and mix with the colors of others creating new hues and shades.
Poem #20 of 31 for October Poetry Writing Month or #OctPoWriMo. The prompt from the OctPoWriMo 2014 website was to write about forgetting something or being late and the stress and anxiety of that. This is what I was able to come up with. Not really about being late or forgetting something but the pain of being forgotten. ~M

Poem 18 of 31 for October Poetry Writing Month, #OctPoWriMo, based on the prompt of black out or found poetry posted on the OctPoWriMo 2014 website. I took a picture of a page in one of my favorite books uploaded to PicMonkey and then started choosing words and editing the image. Above is what I came up with, not sure it makes much sense but it was an interesting endeavor and the first time I have done this. ~M
