A Name and a Poem

Happy November!
Best month of the year!

First, I am offering some names to Abby Fowers - she is hosting a contest, looking for a pen name for her children's books. Personally I like her name as is. But here are my suggestions:

Abigail Fletcher
Aravia French
Sinclair Price
Madison Ayers

The first two came to me right away as I thought of her initials, but she oesn't like her initials so I came up with a couple that were different =) Good luck, Abby!

And today is the first day of the PAD challenge by WD's Robert Lee Brewer. A winning poet will have an anthology of poems published! woo hoo! (Great, I forgot he likes to do "Two for Tuesday")

Here are my 2 for Tuesday, Procrastination & Proactive

It will take care of Itself

I am neglected
Attention I need
Don’t put me off
Please take heed

You passed my number
Ignore me no longer
If you don’t get to me soon
I’ll transform to a monster

I’ll come alive
Wake you from dreams
Clog your senses
So you can’t breathe

I’m so tired
I must sleep
that pile of laundry
will have to keep

NOOOOO!


Hyperspeed

Good morning, world!
Time to face
Another day!

Prioritize necessities!
Estimate and calculate
The time to take and synchronize
Hurry up! Don’t be late!

It’s now or never!
Or tomorrow…

I love the suggestions you have for Abby. Sinclair Price is especially classic.

Your poems were also great but the second one got me energized. :-)

Awesome name, Tara. I especially like Madison Ayers :-)

Great poems -- there is so much longing in the first one and such a rush in the second. Wow, two completely different styles.

I could relate to your poem.

I like Abby's name, too, but understand wanting a pen name.
