Ok, here's something fun I'd done in other groups, here and on the net.  - - The first person starts and writes one line, then posts it and someone else adds a line and before ya know it, there's a whole poem written.  Keeping it semi-in-line with the subject, topic, or the way it's going, seems to help.

so i could finally face it and stop carrying it around inside me, letting it go, and beginning again, almost as if blindfolded, face to face with the dark, everything like a black and white movie , my life's documentary but when i try to narrate the only sound is silence, i have no voice and so

but the wind was blowing, the flowers were being sifted by the wind, the sunrise was now covered by dark clouds and I sat amidst all of this and watched...and listened...to beautiful music.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
