English #frapalymo prompt 2nov15

I published this post first in November 2015 and I re-post it on that old date. The event has ended:
Good Morning oops Evening writers and other mindful ones!
This month both “Good Morning Writers!” and “Mindful Monday” are having a little break as I take part in the German poetry project “#frapalymo“. I translate @FrauPaulchen’s poetry prompts either here or on “Fooling Around With Bee” (blog is deleted) and write the according poem on the other blog respectively.
I hope you will join us in versing and exploring new ways of using our poetic muscles. It is great fun I can tell you. But enough explanation. Here comes @FrauPaulchen’s prompt:
(You can find the original German post here)
” thank you very much for this lovely kick-off in this poetic month. i enjoyed all other perspectives enormously and were glad to hear so many familiar voices as well as a few new ones! so let’s use this push and start into a double prompt. i admit I have become a fan of these double prompts. on the one hand and very personally said they make my work to find new prompts a little easier. on the other hand i love the interaction of both texts and also the consciously chosen distinction in both. and you directly know the prompt for the next day… that’s something. 

the prompt for the #frapalymo poem on 2nd november 15 is: “liquid”. we haven’t had a condition of aggregation yet and for it not to be on its own “solid” will be the follow-up prompt. but as always there will be some more information tomorrow evening. 

let your thoughts become liquid to flow into texts and try to grab, what usually isn’t possible to be held. lots of fun with reading and writing!  



and the small print: please let me know via email or twitter if you take part. then i can post the link to your blog/poem on twitter. or post the link in the comments under the daily prompt post on my blog. hashtag for twitter is #frapalymo and I am @FrauPaulchen.”
