    Check out John's article about friendship, which includes a good acrostic poem and a short story that will be continued, (hopefully soon).

        Lovely response to Brenda's prompt, "Treasure." I enjoyed the poems including the acrostic one. The fiction short story is looming up to be very intresting and definitely looks promising. Can't wait to read it! Thank you for an entertaining night before I fall asleep. All the best, John.

        Thanks Pamela for posting John's work.

        Hello Misbah. I saw notification of your forum post first but when I went there was hit with a 404 error. Now I know why smile
        I am pleased you enjoyed the poems and are looking forward to the rest of the story. Take care.

      Hello John!
      A wonderful response to 'Treasure.'
      I liked both your poems. I noticed a pattern in your second poem, which I liked very much. Three lines, and then one or two words, in the 4th line. Does this kind of poem has a name? Just curious--
      The teaser of your story sounds interesting. Will be looking forward to the next.
      Thank you for sharing.
      Thank you to Pamela for sharing this in the forum.

        Hello Chitrangada,
        Thank you for reading my article. Yes, you were right about the second poem. It has a pattern 4,5,5,2 syllables. I am glad you liked it but I have no idea it has a name because I just made it up. It is possible I read one with that structure somewhere before, but if so I don’t remember. I am pleased you also found the story interesting.

    A short fiction, outstanding poetry, and a quote from my favorite philosopher/teacher....this was a win-win-win for me.  Well done, John!

      Thank you for your kind words Bill. Which one is your favourite philosopher/teacher..Walt Disney, Rumi, or Buddha haha? I hope I can do the rest of the story justice. I started with the ending, and am trying to build the story to get there satisfactorily.

    I love your idea that treasures abound and that they are all around us. What a beautiful thought!  I love the photos that you chose for the article as well. The story excerpt suggests that your tale is going to be very interesting. Thank you for sharing John's article, Pamela.

    We can always find solace in the treasure of nature.   Thanks Pamela for sharing John's poems and the beginning of a story that will be fun to read when he has finished it.

      Yes, nature has many treasures, Peggy. Than you for reading and I hope the rest of the story doesn’t disappoint.

    It's funny how we start writing one genre, but it seems to fit another.

    I love this quote:

    "I followed all life's pleasures wherever they would lead, but someone I can treasure is all I really need."
    — Neil Diamond

    "The Treasures We Seek ~ An Acrostic Poem" tells us if we have patience and stay the course, we will find our treasure.

    Good things come to those who wait.

    "Life Is a Treasure" tells us there are treasures all around if we open our eyes to see them.

    Within every living thing there is a jewel from God's creation that is wondrous treasure.

    Take time to be a part of it and live life.

    "The Treasure of Calibishie (an excerpt)" definitely captures my interest.

    Just when I was ready to read stops.

    I can't wait to read the rest of this one.

    Way to keep me in suspense.

    I'll post a link in the word prompt article.

      Brenda, thank you for your analysis of each piece of poetry. I always love to hear your interpretation. I had actually written almost an entire poem about searching for a buried treasure, but scrapped it and started writing the story instead. I have written more than I included here but still have some editing to do until i am happy, then I will post more. Sorry to keep you hanging.

        No worries John.

        Don't post it until your muse says it's ready.

        It has the makings of a great story & it's good to have a little anticipation.

        Have a great day.
