Poetry challenge #9 free style: the entries

This challenge really seemed to get the words flowing. Starting each line with the same letter sounds tough, but you all showed that it’s perfectly possible to write beautiful poetry within such a tight constraint.

First in this week was from DAME from Ms Toy Whisperer

Dame | Ms Toy Whisperer

Next was another ‘D’ poem. This one a love poem from Sacha Black

Dark and murky, this blindness suffocates me,
Deathly quiet, muffled like a blanket of snow yet,
Doubt bangs as loudly as the morning sun shines

Deep in my chest a potent concoction of
dread and exhilaration matts together like glue
deaf to the dangers of love, I
dance willingly into her arms.

Next was Ken with


Simply stellar
Such was that moment

Subtle, yet

Senses reeled, when first I
Stared into her eyes

So it is today
Some years later

Space, time hold no meaning
Save for her presence

So certain am I that
She shares my sentiments


Simply stellar



Peter Bouchier sent this ‘W’ poem



Then an ‘I’ poem from Pensivity



An ‘H’ poem from Elusive Trope

Hyper-Vigilance | Elusive Trope

An ‘S’ poem from Janice

Seeking–Jane Dougherty Poetry Challenge #9 | Ontheland


This ‘B’ bird poem from Kerfe has, of a course, beautiful illustrations

Bunting Bird Brooklyn Bound | method two madness


Another romantic poem YEARNING from Mr. Todd

Yearning… | A Flash of Fiction…


Last in this week, a tour de force in ‘F’ from Merril

Holidays in the Key of F | Yesterday and today: Merril’s historical musings

Thanks so much to you all for participating. Looking forward to the last challenge before Christmas? Watch this space tomorrow.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
