oooh, our first blog poetry slam.   that’s right.  motivated by lavenderbay‘s poems from the past, i’ve decided that we, the bloggers, are going to cowrite a poem….starting now!

it’s simple.  i start with a line, another blogger follows with another line, and so on and so on.  you can submit as many lines as you want, but they cannot be continuous!  no one can have two lines in a  row! no rules other than that:  any meter, alliterate if you wish, rhyme at will or not at all!  oh, and send friends over to add a line!

the poem ends itself…

i have high hopes for you all!

let’s begin:

expectations high, i profer a line
