Writing Challenge

As the old saying goes, come dance with me. Below is a one sentence poem. Use it as the “poem within a poem”….write words before or after…..free verse, stanzas, whatever moves you. Create the title too. Put the full poem in a Reply or a Pingback. Two minds, better than one today – excited to partner with you!

My dreams flew by
on gossamer wings,
too high to reach today
even on tiptoe.

    Good day Lillian,
    I wrote something with respect to your challenge, but am unfamiliar with pingbacks. I’ve read it but it does not make sense to my arctic blond hair syndrome.

      Oooh, excited to see what you wrote! Not to worry…..I only know about pingbacks because I usually do the DailyPost’s weekly photo challenge (look at the bottom of On the Way and you’ll see my statement that links back to it). So here’s how you do it….post the poem on your site and either add words something like this before or after your poem (doesn’t have to be these exact words):
      This is in response to a Writing Challenge on lillianthehomepoet. And then create a link to lillianthehomepoet by highlighting those letters) and going to the link symbol, clicking on it, and then putting in the link https://lillianthehomepoet.com That’s it! It’s pretty easy and a nifty way to link. Or, if that doesn’t work….(but it should)….just post your poem in the Reply itself. 🙂
      Excited to see it!!! Thanks so much for doing this…..I just thought it would be fun to see how different people use the words ….
      PS: We should be hearing from Holly today!

        I gave it a go Lillian. Hopefully it was correct!

        Can’t figure out how to actually Reply to this….so editing your comment to add my reply….if that makes sense? I just read your poem from the ping back and yes, you did it correctly….and it is stunning! You’ll find my comments on your site. Thanks for doing this Alan…..I thought it would be fun to try something different and you just made it all worthwhile. Actually, more than worthwhile!! Love your words!
