For We Write Poems Poetry Prompt #194: Happy New Year http://wewritepoems.wordpress.com/
We were to use a self-created list of synonyms and antonyms, for the three words above, with which to build a poem.
Be careful What You Wish For
In this sweet madness
Oh this glorious sadness
That brings me to my knees
Sarah McLachlan – Angel Lyrics
Could remember lengthy duration
of intoxicating state
of the art melancholy.
Although now out of date
even antiquated, she periodically
found herself yearning for a few seconds
of that soft enveloping stillness,
when limp fingers rested in lap
lacking all motivation toward movement.
Elizabeth Crawford 1/2/14
Notes: I find the most difficult prompts to be those I myself have created, but I promised myself that I would at least make an attempt through this coming month. I deliberately built my list of words more strongly on the antonyms. It made for a different kind of challenge.
