Personal and Rosemary

19 Apr

At NaPoWriMo the challenge today is to write a poem inspired by personal ads.  Izy at Real Toads has presented the task of writing a poem about melting.  Yeah, we’re all ready for winter to leave for a while.

I’m also linking to Haiku A2Z Heights, where today is rosemary for the letter R.

    Two beautiful ones here, Teresa. I especially like the first one, but there’s also something about “old love” in the second one that speaks to me.

    I like both of these. The scent of rosemary in the garden captured me and the clever ad was lovely to read.

    These two speak right to my heart, especially the first – cackle! Seriously though – both are beautiful!

    I love that personal ad!

      Ah, that ad is much better than most personals! I loved the “scent of rosemary” and what is conjures, too. This is a lovely duet of poems, each with its own charm. Thanks, Amy

      “melt my stone heart” I like how you used this as a command and an invitation. Well done, my friend and viva la

    Wonderfully created. I get the impression the stone cold heart isn’t cold at all just waiting to be awakened

    Such a gentle haiku on Rosemary, it reminded me of grandparents pottering in a small garden tending plants with such love and care. Now we are the old people still tending our plants in the knowledge that if we feed the grandchildren food we have grown they will be healthy and happy.

    Love both poems. The personal ad poem has a slight advantage for me maybe because it has that hedonistic appeal…*smiles*
