Valentine’s Day Lonely Hearts Love Poetry Challenge DAY 10 (poem)

Here's your Day 10 Writing prompt poem Lonely Hearts! Slowly but surely I'm getting these guys done.  I hope that you are doing well in your writing too.  I'm still thinking about a challenge prize.  If you place your poems or pieces of them and a link to your site in the comments section then I'll see what I can do. Keep your heads up and Keep the Love flowing!

Love’s Anaconda
by Ieisha McIntyre
I slip through tall grass, slip into waters, slide up the 
trunks of trees, and all in search of you.
All in search of this love. 
But I can’t help my nature, 
I know I will surround you.
Encase you in my bliss,
Let the warmth of my embrace subdue your other promptings. 
Let the beating of my heart synchronize with yours.
Lull you into submission,
Make you unaware our love’s grasp
upon your body, your life.

Valentine’s Day Lonely Hearts Love Poetry Challenge DAY 9 (poem)




Day 9 Lonely Hearts poem is up!  I'm slowly catching up.  I might even make it before midnight!  But I'll take it one at a time.  Let me know what you think.  I think after this one, for the remainder of Feb. I'll do an African-American History Month challenge.  Perhaps I'll even have a prize for that one.  A little one. I think of something.
Teaching 
by Ieisha McIntyre
The routine,
the challenge, 
the victories, and the failures.
All between dawn and dusk. 
All the hours governed by bells.
All the days, measured down to the minute.


No matter how many 
minutes are counted
the unexpected,
and unpredictable looms.  


The dusty chalk, the pencil shavings, 
papers, 
and red pens. 
The tools of learning made ready,
a bell, it begins again.

Valentine’s Day Lonely Hearts Love Poetry Challenge DAY 8 (poem)


Day 8 Lonely Heart's Poetry Challenge: Here is my poem based on the Writing prompt for Day 8. I hope you all have a good read.  I hope writing these poems are helping you as much as they are helping me.  I think that if we walk with love instead of run from it, we will have a better chance at drawing the spirit of love to us.  Keep Writing Lovers!




Sister
by Ieisha McIntyre


You are the one who knows
 the secrets Momma doesn’t.
The one who helped me sin a little.
The one who helped me heal a little.
You made me laugh at mistakes and rejoice
in my victories.


You are the one who dried my tears and 
shielded my shame with her love. 
You set me on a different path.
You pointed to the signs on the road,
helped me learn to read them.


We held each others hopes 
the same way that we hugged, 
and promised ourselves
we would make them come true.


Now,  I hold your hopes forward.
My lantern.  As I walk on my way,
You are my light, my joy, my memory of love,
My Sister.

Valentine’s Day Lonely Hearts Love Poetry Challenge DAY 11 & 12 Writing Prompt


Hello Lonely Hearts!  Here are your writing prompts for Feb. 11 and 12th.  I'll be posting my poems before the end of today.  I hope you are keeping your heads up and hearts full of hope and love for all humankind.  As we all watch from near and far and witness Egypt's fight for freedom, we are also watching an example of what can happen when those with weaponry choose love over violence.  We watched as soldiers kept their word not to fire, as minority Egyptian Christians used their bodies to shield praying Moslems.

Your Writing prompt #11 is your opportunity to write a love letter to "the other".  Whomever the other is for you in your community.  Take a moment and meditate upon the goodness that they bring into your community.  Write it down.  And, don't forget to put it in the form of a poem.




Have you ever thought that if you had super powers that you might use them to find the love of your life?  Telepathy to find out if that person you like really likes you.  The ability to fly in order to make a long distance relationship easier.  The ability to stop time?



Writing prompt #12:  What would you super power be?  How would you use it to bring love into your life and to nurture it?  Good Luck Lonely Hearts! Keep Writing! Valentine's Day is almost here.

Valentine’s Day Lonely Hearts Love Poetry Challenge DAY 7 (poem)




Hello Lonely Hearts Poets!!  I've managed to sneak a little time and get my poem written in response to the Day 7 writing prompt.  I've placed it below.  Feel free to let me know what you think.  Link, Subscribe, Share! Keep Writing Lovers.


Footpath to Joy
by Ieisha McIntyre


I.


My God - 
I may not be 
worthy of love.


My God - 
I may not have 
a soul worth saving.


But, 
who will come for
me when I die?


II.
If you love me -
I will look the other way,
When you love someone else.


If you love me - 
I will forgive you 
When you are not enough.


Why,
are you never
enough?


III.


My God,
I am Rapunzal
without hair in her tower.


My God,
I have made this tower
of pain.


Where,
is the key to
my joy?

Valentine’s Day Lonely Hearts Love Poetry Challenge DAY 10

Boy, oh Boy! Do you know how you feel when in love?  Perhaps a bit like an animal? Do you have an idea of what that animal might be?  If you do, try writing a poem about it.  Let us know how your love roars, chirps, purrs, flys, swims. And when your love does what it does, with what level of passion is it executed?



And here you have a little Mumford & Sons inspiration to help you along. I LOVE THIS BAND!

Valentine’s Day Lonely Hearts Love Poetry Challenge DAY 9

Hello Lonely Hearts Poets!  You all are doing an amazing job. I'm typing right along with you. And will post my poems for Day 7-9 by Friday.  While I know that is not the ideal, I know many of you are working a day job like myself. It is this lonely winter stretch after the holidays that can really get to a soul.  So why don't we give ourselves a moment to write a love poem to the day jobs we have?  Or the day jobs we wish we had, or aspire to have.



 I LOVED THIS SONG WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL!

Valentine’s Day Lonely Hearts Love Poetry Challenge DAY 7 & 8

Hello Lonely Heart Poets! Its Day 7 and well past the time of posting so I will post your prompts for today and tomorrow.

For Day 7, we are going to take a look at Paulo Coehlo's Blog - Character of the Week Pillar.  His character of the week talks about the fear that's created when one waits to act on love.  When you think too much, question your own heart, question your gut and you lose the passion to move forward and step out on faith.
It also talk about the power that love has to draw others to us.  When we are loved by one we are loved by others.  Give people the impression that there is no one who has loved you and you might give them the impression that you are not worthy of their love either.
Can you relate to those two moments?  Check out the blog article.  Does it bring up a memory? Stir a new thought?  Well whatever your reaction, write about it! And put it into a poem.  Give us a link to it if you'd like to share.

For Day 8, Let's take a day to think about the love that we have for those in our family.  The love you have or wish you had from your mother/father/family members, what does it look like?  What would you like it to be?  How would you let them know?



Well that's all for now Lonely Hearts.  Happy Writing and Keep in touch!

Valentine’s Day Lonely Hearts Love Poetry Challenge DAY 6 (poem)


Here is the poetry offering for the Day 6 Lonely Hearts poetry challenge. Lemme know whatcha think, and what you are writing.  Share, Subscribe, Follow! Keep up the Love!


The last goodbye.
by Ieisha McIntyre


Your lips parted into a smile. 
You said that you would see me 
when you got back.
Certain you were right, 
I didn’t watch you board the plane. 
I didn’t wait to see it take flight. 
When the phone rang, I thought it would be you just checking in.
So, I let it go to voicemail. And a strangers voice told me
 that you would not be home.

Valentine’s Day Lonely Hearts Love Poetry Challenge DAY 4 (poem)


Should’a been
by Ieisha McIntyre

As friends, we sit. Share coffee and talk
about our lives, and where we have been.
And, find that we almost met
at a party, but a friend of yours was sick and wanted to go home,
and I arrived late 
and came through another door.  
But we remember the weather that day, 
and the feeling of the sun. 
We remember the party host 
and the friends we shared in common, 
but we never met the way we could have, should have, 
if we would have had the chance.

Hey there Lonely Hearts!  I know, I know. I'll catch up to you soon enough.  But if you are ready for Day 6, then here is your prompt.

Day 6 Prompt: Remember the last time you saw that most wonderful love of your life?  Well, the time that you didn't know it was the last time?  Or even, the last time you saw them, before you met the one?  Yeah, I know.  Well, I don't know about your story.  So, let's try to put that one into focus and put it into a poem.  Here's some music to help us out.
