Poetry Prompt 20 - Love Poetry

“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.” ― Maya Angelou

Poetry Prompt:

Time to write a love poem. Now just because it is a love poem doesn't mean it has to be between lovers, it can be the love you had for your favorite pet when you were growing up (or now), it could be for your kids, it could be your best friend. Or, you could do something fun from a prompt I shared in the 2013 OctPoWriMo, Love Letters, Not What You Are Expecting.

Word Prompts:

fondness
tenderness
warmth
intimacy
attachment
endearment

Possible Poetry type: Loop Poetry, an invented form at Shadowpoetry.com

I have discovered a new poet, at least a new poet to me, Andrea Gibson. Gibson's poetry speaks to me on many levels and if you haven't read Gibson's poetry I highly recommend it. I just bought, The Madness Vase and can't wait to dive into it. Have you discovered any new poetry books lately?
