Let’s do two prompts for today.

First one is Mad Hatter because it is National Mad Hatter Day.  I had some acting friends in Bethany Oregon that would have Mad Hatter Tea party every year – with guests dressing up as Carroll’s various tea party members. It was always delightful zany fun.  (The same friends would create an elaborate maze for Halloween that I & my family would participate in.)

Monsters aren’t the only costumes & stories for Halloween.  Let’s turn our poet’s pen to heroes …

Oct 6th’s prompt is “well the best of the best wasn’t available so we went with the best of the mediocre”.

My sample ia a poem I wrote during a NaPoWriMo challenge :          Audio on Soundcloud

Tell A Story Backwards by Ariel

Today I ask, if your community has a protest against Kavanaugh’s SC nomination, please  PLEASE attend. Kavanaugh is everything we don’t need on the Supreme Court – immature, biased, partisan and corrupt.

If you believe that the Supreme Court is the last dense and last enforcer of the law – we cannot have this tool confirmed. I mean – talk about NOT being the best of the Best!


If you appreciate what I do, please consider being one of my  Patrons on  Patreon.

Looking for patrons so I will have the funds to continue offering this blog – Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for creators to get paid.

For patrons, Patreon is a way to join your favorite creator’s community and pay them for making the stuff you love. By supporting a creator with a few bucks per month, your favorite creators can make a living doing what they do best (for me – that’s poetry) because of you! And you become a bonafide, real-life patron of the arts. 

My archive of blog’ poetry prompts is here.

You know I’m all about the prompts!
