All you need is …
Well, all I need is to write a 10-line poem about love, thanks to my friend Belinda, the marvelous mind behind the always interesting blog Idiot Writing.
Belinda tagged me in the Love in Ten Lines Challenge. Poetry!
Here are the rules.
•Write about love using only 10 lines.
•Use the word love in every line.
•Each line can only be four words long.
•Nominate others who are up for the challenge.
•Let them know about the challenge.
•Title the post: Love in Ten Lines
•Include a quote about love (this can be your own).
•You may write in any language.
“Love in Ten Lines”
They say love hurts.
I say they love
to pity past love.
Oh, lost love,
oh, saddest love,
oh, baddest love,
oh, maddest love.
I love to say
I love you today
my love-ly dear wife.
OK. Now, a quote:
“Love on the Rocks”
“Love on the rocks ain’t no surprise
Pour me a drink,
And I’ll tell you some lies
Got nothing to lose,
So you just sing the blues, all the time
Gave you my heart, gave you my soul
You left me alone here
With nothing to hold
Now all I want is a smile
First they say they want you
How they really need you
Suddenly you find you’re out there
Walking in a storm
When they know they have you
Then they really have you
Nothing you can do or say,
You’ve got to leave, just get away
We all know the song …”
— From the song by Neil Diamond, in honor of his concert tonight, to be attended by my dear wife Karen and I.
Now for the nominations:
I’m tapping on the shoulder a quartet of my best friends and longest-standing WordPress cohorts.
I think you’ll be an artist master at his one. Beth.
It’s time for you to write a love poem, Mr. McKeever.
The last rule seems to be written with you in mind, Mrs. B. A bilingual effort, perhaps?
You can make Dave hop with your poem, Angie McFly.
Teddy, NC or a secret admirer, CBXB? 🙂
