Today's Prompt: Go to Reb Livingston’s Bibliomancy Oracle. Clear your mind, push the button, and then write a poem based on the quotation that the oracle provides.
Here's the prompt I received:
Every moment is beautiful

Every moment is beautiful

Come down now with your diction

                and your dictionary. (from “Letter Already Broadcast into Space” by Jake Adam York)


So here I go.  The non-poet poet:

Communication is a one-way street.
What did you say?
Communication is a one-way street.
I heard you.  What did you say?
Communication is a one-way street.
Say it again.  Different words.
Oh.  I see.
Oh.  I hear.
Open.  Trust.  Unguard.  Honest.  Intimate. Real.
Communication is an open highway.
Yes, Love.

I am a monthly feature-writer for the Marengo-Union Times. I finished my first novel and am anxiously awaiting responses from publishers. In my spare-time, I act as a consultant. I am a wife to one, a mother to four, a grandmother of twelve, a daughter among many, and a sister to all.
