I have missed my weekly participation in one single impression...so here I am again.
This week's word is TOLERANCE given to us by Gina of Kilauea Poetry.
I have written a haiku...
This weekend's Weekend Wordsmith is Passport.
I was finding myself stumped. Throughout Saturday I had tried several times to come up with a poem (because that's what I like to write from my prompts). Nothing was coming, so this morning I remembered something I learned in a poetry course...add an extra word to a poem to give it some more depth.
Well I added two extra words to the prompt, Red and Trampoline, and before I knew it words flowed, and out came a poem of sorts. Not only that, similes showed up, too. This was a great exercise for me, and reminded me of the usefulness of continued education :>)

As delicious apples,
Feeling as used
As a passport,
Like a rock concert,
Will it ever end
Like a book?
Smiles greet me
Like open envelopes
Hugs as welcoming
Home at last…
I see it's been a week since I last posted...oh well! Life is kind of getting in my way. I'm busy with Laura Purdie Salas' non-fiction course and then there's regular life with kids, husband, pets, and of course, me :>)
Head on over and try your hand at writing a 15 word or less poem prompted from this week's photo...it's a strange one...but lots of neat poems and thoughts have been posted.
Here's mine for this week, inspired from my eldest's son fear of clowns when he was young:
my painted smile,
searching for happiness.
This weekend's prompt is Boom and I've come up with a very simple acronym.
This weekend's Weekend Wordsmith is, sleepless, an action I know very well at this time of my life for numerous reasons.
Following is the poem I created in trying to 'fly in the sky'. What I ended up with was a very strange Haiku...
Today's words for 3WW are and interesting contrast and I thought, "Won't it be fun to play with these three words:
And as I thought of these words a picture of a rock climber popped into my head.

Unseen ruthless winds
Hanging hands caressing
Branches drape, fanning
through a wall of humid air
blades stretch--bend in the breeze.
