Loopy Scrap Verse

for Octpo 26 where the prompt is to  take the last word of a line. Skip a line. Use that word as the first word of that line then take the last word of the FIRST line and use it as the first word of the THIRD line and so ad infinitum.  Mine is not much of a poem – nearing the end of Octpowrimo I am wilting somewhat, but cheered up to see the completion of a project which has been en route since the beginning of August.

Weeks of work and lots of fun
culminates in satisfaction.
Fun with colours and shapes brings
satisfaction in a job well done.

  7. Well done Viv – what a beautiful quilt I love it. And well done too for keeping up with the daily poem. I’m not doing anything much just now – no poetry school or 52 to keep me on the ball!
