Written for: Friday Writings #37: Stay Happy and Alive
Write a poem inspired by:
"I think, to stay creative is to stay happy and alive."
cards for family
and friends, humorous, containing
their traits, likes, and dislikes, smiling from start to finish.
I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York.
My goal is to create and share poetry with others
who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve
in you, and feel your sparks as well.
Oh, that sounds like such a fun thing to do!
My Dad used to make poems for family members’ birthdays, and write them on cards – but they were acrostics, with letters of the person’s name beginning each line.
I love creating those cards!
I bet they love them too. Few gifts are as precious as those crafted by the hands of those we love.
I do get good reviews. It’s a lot of fun for me.

i love this form, and the way you crafted it seems easy, though it is not.
Yes, a hand-crafted card for family and friends is so much more meaningful. I have some from my daughter and though some of the ink is smudged, and the letters askew, i am still keeping these cards. 🙂
Thanks so much. You will always have those keepsakes to smile at.
A nice Fibonacci sequenced sentence poem, Sara.
I have a friend who makes cards, she used to put them on her blog. Now on Facebook she’s pretty quiet about the cards. I never received one though.
Thanks, Jim. Sorry you didn’t get your own card.
It’s always a boost to get a warm reception of one’s personal and creative gifts
It is a rewarding feeling.
Ooooo…I like this fibonacci form. I hope your family and friends appreciate your creative gifts.
Lucky them !
I haven’t used this form in a while, but love it.
I believe everyone likes their cards, at least they say they do.
That is a really sweet way to share your love with others!
