English #frapalymo prompt ~ 16Nov16


Ok my dear fellow poetesses and poets I am back online and on holiday so I jump back into #frapalymo and give you the second half of the eleventh #frapalymo.

For all those who do not know it: #frapalymo is a German poetry project similar to National Poetry Month happening every May and November. It was created by @FrauPaulchen and I am translating her daily prompts so that you can take part too.

So let’s see what @FrauPaulchen can offer us today:

did you realise? we have left the first half of our poetry month behind and now start the second half. brilliant, that all of you are still taking part, read, write and verse!

a lovely fellow tweep and grown dear to me will kick-start the second part.  i am speaking of @e_mm_e1. she sends little sun beams into my world with her tweets and I thank her for that a lot!

and that is why #frapalymo prompt no 16 is: „sometimes you can see the sky even with your head hanging low”*. and if you want to see this tweet and the attached picture of a sky mirrored please click here (this is a German tweet

you are free to choose if you want to discover what there is to see in this piece of sky, if you choose the image of the hanging head or that of the unexpected discovery. have fun being inspired. 

*please be aware that it is not the goal of #frapalymo to use the exact words of the prompt for your poems. they are intended to make you think and verse. if you choose to use the exact words then please mark it and give credit to the author. thank you very much. 

…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 post here

Ah, it’s good to be back and I hope that I can inspire some of you to take part.

  1. Interesting, thanks for translating it, I had a look at the site, for sure I wouldn’t be copying it as I can’t read it.
    Will think seriously at writing something for this challenge.
    Hope you are having a wonderful day and enjoying your internet connection, with the earthquake in NZ, I lost my connection for a morning, I was completely lost without it
