Honoring life’s memories –

Colleen’s Poetry Challenge –

One hundred and eleven

Tantalizing tastes of verse.

 

As I sit to ponder and write for Colleen’s latest challenge, the numbers hit me hard. It is another day of elevens for me, and this mystic trend began around 2 years ago – around the time that dear Colleen started her challenges. And so, I go back in time, remembering my own early adventures in verse, when I was 9 years old and studied every form of verse I could find in books from the library. Rhyming couplets, limericks, ballads, sonnets… I tried them all. But time goes by and life changes and I followed different paths, with poetry falling by the wayside for a lot of years. Then there was Colleen and her Challenges, and she is one of the main reasons behind poetry being such a large part of my life again.

Thank you, Colleen, and a joyful one hundred and eleventh challenge to you all!
