Speaking in Forms

my gut’s opinion
warred with my love sick pining
surviving myself


shines with
bright artificial light
in the valley of


A thesaurus

is a devilish

to soften maleficence
by the innocuous choice of ill.

This is fine for me, Susie. Please leave it be and mend your references. I like it as is, my vote.
I also was sleepy but wrote sitting on the edge of my bed. I even figured out how to put a picture on with the smart phone. I did a little 'tune-up' work on it this morning.
I too forgot to find two prompts but then when I looked there were two words for my theme, sort of like 'cause and effect'. So I just now googled them and used googles finds page for linking to the prompt word.
I might get a bad grade but It's done now. (my picture was taken in South America on January 10, 2016. Later I will figure out where I was then.

Sod the instruction, Susie, I enjoyed all three of them! The senryu kind of sparkled at me, though, so it stood out for me. I like the phrase ‘the valley of narcissism’.

Margaret said…

I'm glad you didn't, because now I have the delight of reading three different but wonderfully done pieces. It's hard to decide which one I like best.
