Or to be precise, you Mr. Brian Miller!
"So along that thread write a poem inspired by the heart, the community, your desire or angst about writing – in other words write!!!"
And my friend JL, who early today came up with the prompt
I opened a secret passageway...
The rules are ...
You MUST use this as the first and last line in your write, as it is given."
To which I responded with this before I dropped in at onestoppoetry
I opened up a secret passageway
Deep, deep down far within my own mind
And I found an escape from the grey,
Dull and dismal world of everyday,
I felt that I had been so very blind.
Deep inside my imagination
I found a whole new world I can love
Where words show a strong inclination
To set up their very own nation
With debates that fit them like a glove.
Where numbers dance in their symmetry
That grave stately waltz of proven fact
Defining life using logics key
And making forms for some poetry
To party with the words and make a pact.
I can escape with many a friend
And happily spend all of my day
With words and numbers in a fine blend.
Yes, life is fun now that, in the end,
I opened a secret passageway.
And they say coincidences don't happen.
