You’ve pierced my heart,

strung it on string and

hung it around your neck.


Close to your own heart,

you said.





Day 12


Today’s prompt is a “replacement” poem. Pick a common noun for a physical thing, for example, “desk” or “hat” or “bear,” and then pick one for something intangible, like “love” or “memories” or “aspiration.” Then Google your tangible noun, and find some sentences using it. Now, replace that tangible noun in those sentences with your intangible noun, and use those sentences to create (or inspire) a poem.

Here is my bit from Wikipedia:
A heart is a small, decorative object that is formed in a variety of shapes and sizes of a material such as glass, plastic, or wood, and that is pierced for threading or stringing. Hearts range in size from under 1 millimetre to over 1 centimetre in diameter. Heartwork is the art or craft of making things with hearts. Hearts can be woven together with specialised thread, strung onto thread or soft, flexible wire, or adhered to a surface.
