(Deep in the rainforest), in (The Land of the Small), there lives a (Solitary Man) who is 
known to do some (Slow Strollin’) among the (Deep Pockets) of (Vernal Pools) looking for 
something more than (Sustenance). Of late, he finds it increasingly hard to be (Still Smiling) 
after his (First Love) left him some (...graffiti on stone) (The Day She Left).

Choosing (Desperate Measures) over (Indecision), he said, in order to release these 
(Imprisoned Opinions) “(I LOCK MY DOOR UPON MYSELF”). (From Where I Live), my life and 
(I, GOT RHYTHM) from our (Sweet Exchange). I was (Longing For Love Not Lust). 

Suddenly in the clearing a (Bronze Beauty) struck (That Pose)! His depression quickly 
vanished as he began thinking (The sky’s the limit) now and it looks like it will be a long time 
before he says: (I Miss You Again)!

*As I read poems from the top 25 poets who enter member contests, I wondered if I could 
make a narrative from the titles of their last five poems posted. I randomly borrowed 23 
titles from 17/25 poets. Perhaps it will evoke fond memories of these poets’ work. (The titles 
are in parenthesis). ENJOY!

    Very interesting, John! It's really cool how you were able to creative an entirely new write out of these titles :) and I sure was surprised to see the title of my work here (Desperate Measures)--wasn't aware of that! ;)

    What a creative piece. Like Carolyn, I really enjoyed it. This flows well--something that I'm sure was challenging to accomplish. You have me smiling as I recognize some of these titles. Thank you for sharing this with us and for your kind comment. Karen

    Wow, John, you are very clever. It must have been hard to put all of these titles together and have a poem make sense. Enjoyed this narrative very much! Thanks. Love, Carolyn
