Once upon a time when… and that’s just how fairy tales begin.
We Write Poems:
Hmmm… lovely, this lily pad.  Contentment, waiting for a fly.  I may not speak a lot, yet “tongue tied” is a description none apply to me!  Yummm.  And while a friendly sort, why’s that big giant female human getting so close to me?  Oh dear!  Her mouth is moving so near to me!  Am I to become her meal??  But wait, what’s that tingle I feel down to my toes?  Mother never said, never gave ribald advice for this sort of… kiss?  Oooh, but wait, my fingers, my toes, they’re no longer green, and suddenly I’m feeling rather…

Frog prince on leafBe it a “frogly” prince or adorable curly-toed witch, which fairy tale character did you choose to inhabit this week?  Speak now or forever hold your breath… we can hardly wait to hear your tale wag!  Our prompt simply, to write a poem from the viewpoint of a fairy tale character.

    We should do this fairy tale prompt every season. Till we’d exhausted all the characters we’re trying to get under the skin. You know, make the familiar new. Or get more & more into one character…because we’re so into you Mr Froggy Prince!
