Day 30 - Dancing On The Moon


This is it everyone, one day left. One more day of poetry and prompts and hopefully, it's been enlightening for you! Challenges have been met and you are all awesome!

So today, you should be dancing on the moon yourselves! In fact, that's what we all should be doing, so let's dance, shall we?


Writing Prompt:

It's time to celebrate a job well done, a love won, the turning of the sun. Write about that exuberant feeling you get whenever you are happy, that feeling that makes you feel like dancing whether it's on the earth or the moon!



Word Prompts:

ecstatic
exuberance
joyful
celebrate
on cloud nine


Suggested Form:

Let's make this fun. Free verse for those who need to dance outside the lines, and for more of a challenge (and because we're also dealing with the night sky) how about a constellation form called the Pleiades? Very structured, as are some dances.

Song Prompt:


Don't forget these are only suggestions. You can do whatever you feel like doing. Just remember to visit three other participants and read and leave positive commentary! Thanks!

  5. Someone has to be the killjoy who brings the dark poetry and give the depressing reminder that while the happy people are partying, someone is suffering.

    1. Love the way you capture how it feels to look on at the perceived joy of others here from a different place...

  9. Want to take an opportunity to thank each and everyone who has contributed to the OctPoWriMo... deepest gratitude... specially for novice like me this is a great platform to learn ...I write because it is therapeutic and also I find clarity in the events around as I write in a flow ... though I get a bit serious... need to learn to loosen up a bit ...

    MOON

    The queen of the sky
    Harsh conditions
    Famous for Flaws yet
    Break the shackles
    Dance away under
    The soothing moon....sr

  17. As the month and so OctPoWriMo draws to a close, I wanna say this has been quite a ride. While I stopped using prompts some poems ago, I am still in this.

    Oh, and today's is darker than my usual.
