in the night
how does it spill
Kim M. Russell, 22nd July 2019
I’m catching up with reading and writing after a weekend with my daughter son-in-law and grandson, so I’m delighted to see that Magaly was hosting this weekend, sadly for the last time, for a while. She says that she loves merging prompts and writing very short poetry, which is why she has invited everyone to take two prompts, any prompts, and merge the two topics to create a new senryū, or elfchen, or cherita poem. Our chosen prompts can come from anywhere or any-when, but we must include the link to both prompts.
I love the name elfchen, it seems right for Magaly, who is a cheeky little elf, and the prompts I’ve chosen come from Poets United – Sanaa’s perfume prompt – and the Imaginary Garden’s Poems in April – Björn’s Asking Questions prompt.
