There is no greater gift than friendship – Be Inspired Challenge #26

ptwwwbeinspired

Before I get to my entry for this week’s Be Inspired Writing Challenge, I wanted to say a huge thank you to Amreen for her recognition, her support and her encouragement. She awarded me with a much sought after ‘Be Inspired badge’, and I will display it with pride. If you’d like to read the post, you can find it hereI always enjoy taking part in the challenges, not only because I am keen to improve my skills in poetry, but because they do exactly what the title suggests – they inspire me.

The challenge this week is to write a Clarity Pyramid, and here is my contribution:

FRIENDS 2

I know I’ve used the subject of friendship before, but I hope you enjoyed it. The friendships I’ve made throughout my life make me a better person, and it is nice to think about all the friends I have yet to meet, those who will touch my life as I, in return, touch theirs.

Thanks for reading.

Lighting the way – Be Inspired Weekly Writing Challenge – #24

ptwwwbeinspiredPerhaps it’s not the best way to start a post, but I’m going to be honest and tell you I struggled with this week’s ‘Be Inspired’ poetry form – Quinzaine.

The English word quinzaine came from the French word qunize, meaning fifteen. A quinzaine is an unrhymed verse of fifteen syllables.

These syllables are distributed among three lines so that there are seven syllables in the first line, five in the second line and three in the third line (7/5/3). The first line makes a statement. The next two lines ask a question relating to that statement.

I gave it a go anyway, and here it is. I hope you like it 🙂
