2015 October Platform Challenge: Day Eighteen Crickets, #platchal

I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date.


Oh, I mean that I’m late to the party for the

2015 October Platform Challenge: Day Eighteen

Or am I early? Or a little more than just a little late?This whole October challenge is feeling a little like I’m trapped in Wonderland, especially since being asked to write these poems.

In the above daily prompt I think I read something about crickets, so I will go with it.

I don’t really know what’s going on, am hardly even fully taking part in this challenge, but Writer’s Digest always seemed like a website, as a writer, that I should check out. Not sure what any of it means, but I couldn’t resist the challenge I suppose.

Any challenge that has me writing poetry is definitely living up to its name.

I will go with the vowels: E and I and maybe even a Y…yeah, the poem hasn’t started yet.


Now. Here goes nothing.


Cricket, IE Cheep Cheep Cheep

Chirping while I sleep sleep sleep.

Listen, I Might creep creep creep

My feet find me there with little cricket

I step slightly, lightly

See me step lightly

Pity is the ticket.

Cheep-ee, cheep-eee, cheep-ee ee.


Wow! What in the world was that?

I’m glad to say, all vowels are up for grabs once again, as you can see from this final sentence.

Any Gilmore Girls fans want to take a guess where Brewer must have gotten this particular prompt?


Or is this just me?
