The word for March Word of the Month Poetry Challenge is…

Hi everyone,

Thank you to all who joined us during February for Word of the Month. We had some exceptional efforts. Kim Jasper posted a strong poem last night and I’m sorry to have to take it (and all February poems) down this morning to make way for March. Kim, I’m leaving yours up for a couple of extra days to give people a chance to see your work. I hope you’ll give us another sample for March.

Speaking of March, the word for this month is TIME. Cory Corrado, you have kept track of all the words we’ve ever used so you’ll know if this is a repeat. I don’t have with me the alphabetized list you were kind enough to send me so if this is a duplicate, in my defense I can only say it feels like time again.

        Often echoes sound retreat off every lonely post
        hearing linger last fading bugle note
        at dusk watching slow setting sun
        always returns my heart back when was won

        in my time moments then lost brought frown not smile
        taking my leave of select scholarship admission
        my love attention and for a long while
        hopes of my youthful ideas of ambition

  1. TIME

    There’s time to work
    and time to sleep.
    There’s time to laugh
    and time to weep.
    There’s time for
    everything, I see…
    just wish there was
    more time for ME!

  2. Thanks for the kind words, David. It’s been an emotional month with the death of my good friend. I had your word of the day (replay) in my head as we celebrated Teri at her Celebration of Life. We replayed lots of good memories to remember a life well lived. Yesterday, I put words to paper, many more than needed, but I appreciate all of them, even if they didn’t make it to the final version.

    • Kim, you have honored your friend well, I think. I’m honored that you shared your replay thoughts with us. Sending sympathy to Teri’s family and to those who loved her.

  3. Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
(New Living Translation)
For everything there is a season,
A time for every activity under heaven.
A time to be born and a time to die.
A time to plant and a time to harvest.
A time to kill and a time to heal.
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to cry and a time to laugh.
A time to grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a time to turn away.
A time to search and a time to quit searching.
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to tear and a time to mend.
A time to be quiet and a time to speak.
A time to love and a time to hate.
A time for war and a time for peace.
    The New Living Translation
