          1. That picture is a weird one. I am struggling with the one from Rattle, but muddling through. I keep walking away, hoping to come back with fresh eyes, but finding it hard. Such is the life of a writer. The Visual Verse is there every month; some months it resonates, some it doesn’t. I always love reading what the other writers come up with.

              1. I totally agree. I had to let go of the image, in a way, and turn it into something that made sense to me, and then I started remembering things about my Grandmother, things I hadn’t thought of in years. I often end up writing things that seem to have no correlation to the image whatsoever; but I just let my mind do what it does. And, sometimes, it just won’t budge. You can only write from the extraordinary places that you write from Wulf; you create beautiful pictures with your words.

                  1. I hope you know how much I appreciate you and how much your poetry inspires me. There is a true elegance to your writing that most of us can only aspire to. I often feel so excited for you that you have found your calling; and I do think that is what it is.

  1. Okay, first of all, love this.
    Second of all, I was literally just trying to find the document I had started a couple of weeks ago with my first attempts ever at a haiku (inspired by all of the insanely brilliant poetry that has been generated over the past week).
    And the kicker: I was sitting here thinking about words and then thought about what my favorite English words were (not for what they mean, but the way they sound). The first one that came to mind was hippopotamus (I mean, come one, how can you not feel a little happy when you say that word)
    The second…yellow.
    It seems magic is afoot. 🙂

    1. Yes…hippopotamus is one of those words. It just makes you smile.

      That is is WONDERFUL that magic is a afoot. It’s also a hand and sometimes even the naughty bits. 🤣

      Brooke, it has be a pretty awesome week of writing. You played such a HUGE part. I needed to minimize again after that.

          1. Me too. You know how I see it? You take a breath…you want to read the whole clause, that is thought, in one breath but you can’t because you’re forced to exhale, then inhale again. You almost lose breath doing it, which makes the whole experience even more enjoyable, not to say exciting.
