Challenge Poems

Writer’s Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge – Romance

Colleen and Ronovan started a new challenge and you know me, I’m up for a challenge any day especially when it comes to poetry. By the way I just wrote this! Thank you both of you for the motivation to write again!


A Blend of Two Worlds

From one sphere to another I roamed
Seeking one whose complexity I could easily tow
They came, saw, pretended and fled becoming dumb
Say something! Speak your heart’s thought, let it drum
Let the desires form images of songs to which I can dance
I owe no one but me to let loose and do the prance
The chains of conformity have long held me in deformity
Today, tonight, I break free and become one in uniformity
Perhaps it will last a life time that I cannot tell
But when I look back, I desire to have a worthy tale!

...a fresh slate or paper is a delight to behold, it practically beckons to me...begging to be utilized! With eyes that see and appreciate beauty in the midst of a crazy scenery...hands swift to pen what my 'wonder-filled' mind conjures! My name is Frances

What a fabulous poem about attaining the ever elusive, “freedom.” I have been really thinking about what freedom means, lately. Your words, “The chains of conformity have long held me in deformity…” WOW! I keep telling everyone it is alright to be different and sing your own tunes. Now more than ever that is important. Don’t you love the new challenge, Frances? ❤

It just made sense to switch things up. I was so glad when Ronovan suggested hosting it together. I am so happy to see more of your poetry inspired by quotes! WOO HOO! ❤
