  • Thank you ..you just motivated me to stop cleaning, and to sit down and finish a poem I was writing about being a POW…Deb

    • Awesome, Debra. You’re also reminding me that I need to get back into poetry writing. Years ago I had few of my poems published, but for some odd reason I stopped writing poetry, though I still occasionally love reading it. Glad you found the prompts useful.
