The Cherub Face from the HeaderPoem Chain #1

Margaret and I decided to try something different and created a chain of poetry. We decided to see what we would come up with if one of us wrote a poem and then the other wrote what poetry that might inspire in us. Then the other would do so – and-so-on…

Since it was my idea I wrote the first idea. We decided I might start with a poem inspired by a “colour”. Perhaps because I am rather taken with starting the day with a Haiku I instinctively wrote a Haiku and started with my poem “Green, Life in the Raw”.

This led to this 10 poem chain:

  1. Green, Life in the Raw –  DWPenner
  2. Raw – magsalden
  3. Heart Fires –  DWPenner
  4. Passion Bleeds – magsalden
  5. Vanilla Plane –  DWPenner
  6. Tinge – magsalden
  7. Angels Winging From Earth to Sky –  DWPenner
  8. Not Forgotten – magsalden
  9. Flowers Wave –  DWPenner
  10. Prosperity Rain – magsalden

We each have our own style and so the poems while inspired by each other are very different from each other and cover a broad spectrum of topics.

I hope you enjoy this project. We plan to do it again some time in the future.

Flower

Written passing something personal

The river of Gold turns to River of Scarlet
I lay in pain on the grass
Though stones of this struggle be round or sharp
They will pass I know
But as I lay in pain on the grass
I spy a flower
A simple flower white like a daisy
With a simple yellow centre
And near it a ladybug
I see a butterfly flutter overhead
I lay in pain on the grass
The pain is still there.
But I know it will pass
But the beauty
Now a flower
Now a beetle
Now a butterfly
Will always remain
I will forget the pain
