From books to nightly creatures. What a jump! But that’s how creativity is kick-started the best. So off to today’s prompt by @FrauPaulchen
sigh, that was a special day with special texts. unbelievable, what such a limitation and specification can trigger and create, don’t you think? gorgeous.
it will be more mythical (@FrauPaulchen wrote the post yesterday) with the prompt tomorrow, and I am curious how you are working with the specification. and that is why the #frapalymo prompt no 20 is: “nocturnal/shady creatures” (I have chosen to translate “lichtscheu” both with “nocturnal” and “shady” as a mixture of both comes closest to the meaning of the German word)
are your nocturnal/shady creatures of the human kind or do they come from imagination or a fantasy world? are they sweet natured, delicate creatures or rather dangerous beings of the night? I am curious…..
…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.
