How many times we sang a
tune. Those days when we thought
that all life was unfolding,
carrying us to enchanted lands across
time and space beautifully within somebody’s
precious and joy filled face

Meeting the bar was hosted by De Jackson of Whimseygizmo fame. Here’s here challenge:
Here are the rules, in a nutshell:
– Take a line (or lines) from a poem you admire.
– Use each word in the line(s) as an END word in your poem.
– Keep the words from the original line in order. When finished, you will be able to read down the right margin, and have the original chosen line intact.
– Give credit to the poet who wrote the line(s). You may also want to include a link to the original poem, so we can see your inspiration.
– The new poem does not have to be about the same subject matter, but it can be in a similar vein, if you choose. Or not.
For example, if you choose a line with 6 words, your poem will be 6 lines long. If you pull a whole stanza with 22 words, your poem would be 22 lines long. Etc. There are no rules for meter, syllable count, etc. You can place two words per line, or as many as you want, so long as the last word of each line stays true to the original inspiration.
I chose the poet Ari Banias’ poem from this year entitled A Sunset, which can be found at,
