Reverb

Your voice, (water droplets on an upright basses strings.)
Lifts my attention from rapt conversation. 
Pulls my eyes up in search of the 
tone that has caused my breath to stop, and mind to wonder.
Something tells me that I have heard the echo of a prayer.

Valentine’s Day Lonely Hearts Love Poetry Challenge DAY 3 & 4

Hello All! As I'm sure you've guessed by now that I missed my deadline.  So tonight I'll put up the prompt for both Day 3 and Day 4.

Day 3: "The first time"

Remember the first time you saw that special someone?  What do you remember first about seeing them? Is your first memory what they were wearing?  How you felt when you first saw them? What did you think when you first danced?  What did you think when you first heard their voice?



Day 4: "Close but not quite"

You know that person you were such close friends with?  The one you are certain coulda, shoulda, woulda been the love of your life if only?  Take a moment. . . Yeah, that person. I'm sure you know who they are.  Well, you know how you rehearsed over, and over, and over what you thought you would say if you ever got the nerve?  Well, now is your chance to say it.  But put it in the form of a poem.



Happy Writing Lonely Hearts!!

Valentine’s Day Lonely Hearts Love Poetry Challenge DAY 2 (poem)

Sometimes we have to settle for just a line or two.  Something of a glimpse of a poem and let it sit.  So, that is what I offer you tonight. A glimpse.


After Sunset
by Ieisha McIntyre


After sunset.
In the summer.
The heated sand is welcomed.
It lingers over and warms the toes.

Valentine's Day Lonely Hearts Poetry Challenge:#1 (poem)


Valentine's Day Lonely Hearts Poetry Challenge:#1
Can you guess which song I used for inspiration?  I'd love to see your poems too.

Love Ready
by Ieisha McIntyre
Ready. 

I watch your eyes.
They flutter.
(winged birds.)

My heart palpates. 
(Butterflies crowding tree limbs.)

And I will trade all my freedom, to
the rush that lightens my soul.

Only you have brought me to flight. 
Made me ready.

Valentine’s Day Lonely Hearts Love Poetry Challenge DAY ONE


Hello everyone!  Welcome to the first day of the Valentine’s Lonely Hearts - Love Poem challenge.  I hope you took some time to think about where you might want to start.  If you haven’t then I have a writing prompt for you.  
Writing Prompt: Think of your favorite love song.  The one that takes you back to that first true swell of love’s fire in your heart.  The one that makes you want to cry and laugh at the same time. Pinpoint those moments of bliss.  Don’t judge them, don’t qualify them, just BE with them.  Do your best to describe them and slap them together into a poem.
Feel like sharing?  Post a link to your poem on your blog! Feel free to comment on mine.  I’ll post before midnight, and post the prompt for tomorrow as well!

The Valentine’s Day Lonely Hearts Poetry Challenge!


The Valentine’s Day Lonely Hearts Poetry Challenge!
I’m sitting here today looking over what poems I’d like to challenge myself to submit.  I have found myself most drawn to my love poems.  I am also struck by the realization that I am once again approaching African-American History month and Valentine’s Day. And, that I am again without a focus for my adoration, except for my adoration for poetry.  So, I challenge you who are out there, reading my blog, and willing to play along, to combat the lonely heart blues with poetry.  Excise your love angels and demons! Perhaps even gain the courage to send your poem on a postcard to anywhere, or as a message in a bottle, or tied to a ballon.  Who knows?!  The Valentine’s Lonely Hearts Poetry challenge will begin Feb. 1! Oh yes, and the challenge of course is to write one poem per day up to Valentine’s! I might even consider writing on through to the end of the month. We’ll see. I’ll post prompts just to give you a start if you need one.
