This is a, for ‘fun’ exercise to help keep our ink river flowing. I hope those who enjoy and appreciate poetry will partake. Here’s how it flows, I will start by choosing a word that anyone can flow to, however, ‘first come first flow.’ The flow can be as long as the writer wishes, but not less than 3 lines, perhaps a haiku. The chosen word must be singular, however the writer can alter the word by making it plural or adding a prefix or suffix. Example: revisit or premature and basking or lovelier. Upon completion of the flow, bold the chosen word and then post a word for the next flow. Alrighty then, I’ll go first as an example. Ok here we go, lets flow…. :)

First word: Moon

‘twas
eyes’
delight
to witness the
sun set beyond the
horizon and darkness
descending upon the surface
as the silvery moon and stars appear
suspended, illuminating across the sky
‘til…
tomorrow’s
sun rise

Next word: solace

Sorrow and depression were her daily companionS
Others could not lift up her crushed, diminished egO
Languishing was she within her own silent, private HelL
As each night, she lay awake with no slumbering comA
Craving relief in any numbing or alleviating analgesiC
Ever hoping and writhing, wanting but inconsolablE.​







NEXT WORD: MEANDER

Great Word-Flow ( Post ) Sister cocobutterskyn

MEANDER....

As I often sit and often wander

Mosey along comes time, holding me under
E verything I wanted is incomplete
A nd I wonder
Not again will I sit and ponder
D on’t just sit here, doing nothing
E verybody pays the price of meander
R ather than sit get up, move your feet Sister & Brother



NEXT WORD: Descend

Hodee, I really liked the tone in this! Your revolutionary side seems to be an undercurrent here.

Thanks for partaking Cherryblossom and Hodee

I’d like to reiterate, this exercise is for fun and keeping poetic juices flowing. There is absolutely no pressure to create masterpieces, nor is it a must that a writer follow poetic guidelines and forms such as, acoustic(which Cherryblossom and Hodee so nicely demonstrate) as well as, haikus, tankas or any others. Of course, unless you want to and if that be the case… get your flow on:)


Descending thoughts of past doings
ensue hesitation to forge towards lasting
relationships for fear skeletons may
fall from the closet exposing what was buried
long ago


Next word: Jovial


MaddSistahlyLove!

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
