W3 Prompt # 38

This week David has shared the POW, Denise DeVries’s great poem ‘Generation Gap’https://skepticskaddish.com/2023/01/18/w3-prompt-38-weave-written-weekly/

Denise’s prompt is to write the first line of our poem using a word generator, followed by between 2 and 18 lines of our own.

The first line came from the poetry generator.

Very dazzling among the rain
The doves scatter on my backyard
The plants drink up the gifts from above
The trees bend while small branches break
The weeds take joy in reaching new places
The pavers are overflowing, the drain is clogged
I sit on my covered swing taking it all in

Thanks for answering our prayers

W3 Prompt #37: Wea’ve Written Weekly

David hosts his W3 Poetry prompt with a new poet featured each week.
This week the prompt guidelines were given by Sarah.

  • 14 or fewer lines;
  • the theme of “dreams”

I dream of a body free from pain
I dream of a body that can eat chocolate all day
I dream of a body that can sleep all night
I dream of a body that can climb stairs two at a time
I dream of a body that can eat spicy foods
I dream of a body that can take long walks
I dream of a body that can swim in the ocean
I dream of a body that can drink soda
I accept that I no longer have that body
I accept that this time around I have challenges
I accept that my memories will have to be enough
I have plans to make many more memories
