I’ve given myself a blogging – free day yesterday (had scheduled all posts for yesterday) so had a day off #frapalymo too. Sometimes I just need that. But today I am back and am looking forward to the last three prompts for this year. This little poetr project is such a joy and I love @FrauPaulchen to bits for her ideas and dedication to give us a poetry month after the poetry month ;-). Find today’s original German prompt here.

ah, the centos… ! Always a joy, because the choice of lines and their new sequence gives its own wonder. we will wonder too tomorrow with the fourth to last prompt. 

the prompt for the poem on November 27th of #frapalymo is: “the same line at the beginning for all. Start your texts with: “you, do you know how the raven calls” after a starting line by the poem “Du, weiss Du” by  selma meerbaum-eisinger.

the first line “you, do you know how the raven calls” is the same for all of us and we borrow it from  selma meerbaum-eisinger. It will be magical to see in which different directions and moods this line will lead us. Each text will be individual but we are united with the first line. One of my favourite prompts at #frapalymo.  

if you want to know more about selma meerbaum-eisinger and her tragic and rather short story can read some about it here. And if you want to read or hear the (original German) poem can listen to it here

And the small print: please tell me via mail or twitter when you take part so I can tweet the link to your blog. Or put your poem or link in the comments under my poem of that day. It might be that I have to approve you for my comments first. Please bear with me in that case. The hashtag for Twitter is #frapalymo* and I am @fraupaulchen

*mainly German tweets

Just in case you wondered you do not need to take part with a German poem. Write it in any language you feel to write in. You can either let her know about your poem directly on her blog as is described in my translation or let me know via the comments here on the blog, via @Morgain620 on Twitter or via email: bee.halton[at]gmail.com.
