Morning monkeys make millers moan.

On occacion one occupies oldies.

No, no nonsense!

Double #frapalymo poetry prompt ~ 27/28nov16


Sorry my dear fellow #frapalymoists, that I have not posted a prompt for two days. We had a family emergency and I needed to be there for them so there was no time for posting. Only my scheduled posts were published. All is well now so no need for worrying and I am back to translating the last few prompts for #frapalymo in November 2016. There might not be a poem from today. But I’ll be back with new poetry from tomorrow on.

I might translate the missed prompts from the beginning of the month and the one from Saturday at the beginning of December but I do not know yet if I can manage that. Let yourself be surprised :-).

But now to the prompts from yesterday and today. @FrauPaulchen chose one of her famous double prompts and that is why I translate both in one go.

#frapalymo prompt 27nov16

wow ~ a great prompt with the street noises, which evoked  fine poems.

at the end of the poetry month, there is another double prompt for you which again allows you all freedoms. and who knows, maybe one or the other haiku, elevenie, pantoum, automatic poem appears again….?  

so the #frapalymo prompt no 27 is: “endlessly” and not surprisingly the prompt for the second part for November 28th is “ending”. i wish you endless writing joy

#frapalymo prompt 28nov16

in short part 2 of the double prompt after the endlessness… what ending texts might the endlessness provide us with?  

#frapalymo prompt no 28 is: “ending” 

…and the small print: please let me know via email or twitter if you take part. then I can post the link to your blog/poem on Twitter. or post the link in the comments under the daily prompt post on my blog. the hashtag for Twitter is #frapalymo, and I am @FrauPaulchen.”

Of course, my fellow English speaking poets and poetesses rather let me @Morgaine620 know or post the link here in the comments.

You can find the original German posts here and here.

Starting Creatively ~ Mo 24Oct16


September 2016

Another week is around and I hope it will be a good one for all of us. Just in case your ideas run out for your creative endeavours here is a prompt from 2012 that still holds some fascination:

June 2012

As long as I was supporting the #frapalymo project of @FrauPaulchen it seemed to me that many readers liked the prompts we were given even though not many seemed to have written a poem or wanted to post one here.

That is a shame but maybe you just have to get more used to it. Or I have to explain them more. Anyway, I decided as we always search for inspiration (and sometimes there is just none) to provide an idea every Monday that you may or may not follow throughout the week.

For this week my little project is to write poems (draw pictures, take a photo, make a dance, create a song, write a story….) about places you have visited on your holiday. It can just be a poetic description of the place or just how it made you feel or whatever comes to mind. Be free ~ be lyrical 🙂 ~ be creative!

So my Prompt for this week is:

Beloved places you visited on your holiday!



Creatively Starting taking part suggestions

  • read this week’s prompt
  • remember it when you run out of ideas
  • use it in any way you like (song, photo, story, dance, drawing….)
  • put a pingback to this post so I can share it with as many followers as possible
  • Have fun

Now go, create and have lots of fun!

Where is Suriname?/ Wo ist Surinam?


My next follower lives in Suriname and I have to admit I had no idea where that is until I informed myself via Google maps:

Kenneth Rellum has created a wonderful blog about poetry in English and Dutch. It is called Gladius Poeticus and is about poetry in general but also about his own.

He aptly describes social problems as well as finds beautiful words about the the physical world around him. Definitely worth a visit!

Thanks for following Gladius Poeticus!

1 & 1 = 1


No I have not become cryptic even though I try really really hard ;-).

Today I wanted to introduce you to itsmeiiKaii’s blog but unfortunately Bt can not find it. Well then I am sorry but I have to go on and introduce you to the inspiring poetry of That Dude Eddie which always makes me smile. And that is what makes 1&1 = 1 🙂

But it is not only funny or happy poetry. It stirs a lot more than that. “That Dude Eddie Blog” definitely worth visiting.

Thanks for the follow.

Nein meine Worte werden noch nicht kryptisch auch wenn ich mich wirklich sehr darum bemuehe ;-).

Heute wollte ich eigentlich itsmeiiKaii’s Blog vorstellen aber ungluecklicherweise kann  Bt ihn nicht finden. Tja dann tut es mir leid aber ich muss Euch die inspirierende Lyrik von That Dude Eddie vorstellen, die mich immer zum Laecheln bringt.

Aber sie ist nicht nur lustig oder schoen. Sie regt sehr viel mehr an:  “That Dude Eddie Blog” ist einen Besuch wert.

Und so wurde 1 & 1 = 1 😉

If you bother to go along you’ll find a mixture of own poetry, poetry of friends as well as writing prompts and other ideas.

Definitely worth visiting!!!!l
