Silver Linings (a Paint Chip Poem)

No Love For Fatties invites us to join in on her Paint Chip Poetry by creating our own poem inspired by the paint chip colors of the week. I think this is a really creative and fun idea so I’m giving it a try. Check out her original post and join in too if you feel inspired.

Paint Chip Poetry

Silver Linings

The moon’s silver linings slip from their lofty heights;

Dripping slowly down the horizon;

Coalescing in wise pools upon the street;

Etching our window’s glass with their life lessons;

Becoming yours and mine;

Silvery gifts from space.

Be well,

      Thanks. This series is fun to do!

    So lovely! I really enjoy how you break up the names. For my Channillo series I limited myself to keep the names in order and in tact. Only allowing punctuation between words. Otherwise I kept them how they appear


    1. Monty Vern says:

      Ahh. I guess I’m a rule breaker 😅. I did a whole collection of poems (3 books worth) that were limited to 13 words and had to include a prompt. It was a great exercise in creativity, but now I’m seeking a little more flexibility in my writing to see what happens.

        Ohhh you didnt know the rules! Haha and they were just rules I put on myself lol i might start sharing my poems on my site. But I feel like they have progressively gotten worse and worse because my heart just isnt in it anymore?

        Liked by 1 person

      2. Monty Vern says:

        If you find the heart, I’d love to see them. Perhaps you can curate a ‘best of’ vs. all of them?


      3. gigglingfattie says:

        Haha maybe! The keeping the words together kind of stifles it aot of the time. Might change that up


      4. Monty Vern says:

        If your interested, I’d also be super happy to create some visual imagery related to the paint chip scheme of the week (or your poem). I’m looking for new creative outlets for visual arts. No pressure. Just floating the idea.
