Limited to one vowel. So hard. Only for you, Margo.

This looks very difficult indeed! On a prompt I worked on yesterday I had to write a poem with all the words beginning in the same letter … so I say to you … bravo! A wonderful challenge uptaken and overcome!
Your yesterday poem sounds like it had its own challenges. Thank you for visiting, reading and sharing.
Fun in all three instances! You’re very welcome. I can’t resist sending you the link … maybe you’d like to give it a whirl 😉 http://wp.me/p31In3-3Ke
No promises on writing, but I will definitely read.
lol … wouldn’t make anyone promise to write … muses get feisty when people promise to do this or that.
Oh, my, that does look very hard… Well done!
That process isn’t too difficult. What I found difficult was writing something that made some sense poetically and could be considered decent. Not positive I did either, but it was fun trying. Thanks for stopping in. 🙂
This is a hard one but I found it satisfying to do. If you want to know the effect on a reader, I didn’t realise that’s what you were doing until I read that you had only one vowel. I had to go back and look. I was focused on the repetition and thinking I should have told people that’s a good tool. Brava!
Phew. This is one of those efforts that when I’m done, all I can say is, “Well, I did my best.” I wasn’t sure how it would read to others, so thank you for sharing. Makes me feel much better. I had no idea most of our “a-vowel only” words are not too useful in such an activity. For a while I thought I might have to go back and choose a different vowel. Actually, that might be very interesting–see what other poem emerged from the same text and activity using a different vowel. Nope, not doing it today. 😉
