Make a Way

Life is a fantastic journey

Is there to be no question

A happiness of pure intention

Fantastic the world of which you’re worthy

Journey filled with Divine Intervention

Kith and Kin

Sibling’s love can be strong

Love is the heart’s eternal glue

Can know exactly what to do

Be supportive of family all life long

Strong friendships ever so true

Please Please Me

Plump pumpkin pancakes prepared properly

Pumpkin requires special spices for taste

Pancakes are gobbled up, no waste

Prepared for enjoyment by caring hands, tenderly

Properly topped with whipped cream, brown sugar-laced

I follow a blog filled with a wide variety of great poetry. One of the recent posts was of a style called: Emmett. There are 5 LINES. The first line is 5 WORDS in length. The subsequent lines begin with each of the other words of the first line so that when the first words of each line are read together, they recreate the first sentence!  (see my poem above), And there is a rhyme scheme of abbab.
