  2. I have been posting a poetry prompt EVERY DAY over at Poetry Pasta (www.poetrypasta.wordpress.com)
  3. An unexpected call from a friend and poet, Ed 🙂  Got a book of his poetry from years ago. Gave him a copy of …details…
  4. Discovered a poet, Scott Thomas Outlar on Youtube 🙂
  5. Participating in the 30 for 30 contest (by Mike Maggio)

Poetry Prompt #24

It really is snowing this morning! 😛

Poetry Prompt: Go through an older poetry notebook and REVISE a past poem that you think needs a change

I’ve done this one A LOT 🙂

FOR ALL my readers, writers, lurkers I have a question:  do you think the poetry prompts I post are too general?  I got ONE COMMENT that they were.  Is there anything you would like to see on Words of TheVal2000?

Roller skating poetry prompt #21

Ungraceful

by Valeri Beers

I want

the

music

speed.

To dance

on

wheels
Look at me

I want

to skate

with

my girl

I don’t want

to be

a
wallflower.

I

rolled rather

ungracefully
from

here to there.

Earth poetry prompt #22 (rough draft)

I
don’t like
your cousin,
Mother Nature.

She made
it snow
too much.
It’s
STILL cold
out.

Can
Summer
come out
&
play?

It
was all

Last minute
