Happy June, everyone! I'm saving the new stuff for another day. I've got plans man... In the meantime, from now until Tuesday (or thereabouts) you are invited to post your poems about Fathers. Your poem or a poem by a famous/published/well-known poet. Our only caveat this time around is the subject: dad. Your dad, someone else's dad. Grandpa, great-grandpa. You as a father. (ooohh...great writing prompt for women, write about yourself as if you were a father...)
Stop by next Thursday and post the links to your newly created patchwork poems.
As always, though I am, at heart, a rebel, there are a few "rules" we abide by here at patchwork poetry:
* We use only FULL LINES of other people's poetry in the creation of patchwork poems. Phrases and favorite words don't count (at least not around these parts).
* We DO change a tense or a participle here and there. Add an S, remove an -ED, minor stuff like that. The patchwork purist takes lines JUST AS THEY ARE. That is the challenge! That's why we're here. (Or, at least, that's why I started this thing...)
* We ALWAYS, ALWAYS credit our muses!
Thanks for poeming with me!
