Alphabe-Thursday: The Letter Z

Jenny Matlock




Zipping o'er the alphabet

From Alpha through to Zed

Finding a voice forgotten

Long thought to be quite dead


Zig-Zagging aloft on Zephyr's breath

Towards my own sweet Zen

The strum of Zither's chords

Serenade my journey's end


A survivor's song now written

My Zest for life unfolds

In tales of past transgressions

My Zenith to behold.

You have done such an amazing job every week. I know I've told you that every time but I truly meant it. I don't know how each week you were able to come up with a poem with so many words with the letter of the week. I was always in awe.

Bossy Betty said...

Zippy post!!! Congrats on a job well done!

Wow! That was good! I can't even think of any with Z... except maybe Zoo... or Zits... bahhh....

Happy Thursday to you, Polly!

Polly, it seems that each week you just totally speak to me with your work. Your talent is quite the gift, and I'm your faithful reader.

Sarah said...

Polly, I hope you'll take each of these and put them together in a book. I think you could publish it!
Enjoyed each one. Thanks for sharing your talents.

Bravo!

Kathleen said...

I love this! You are so talented...and persevering too having made it all the way to Z! I think I would have given up at Q!

Mumsy said...

I agree with Sarah! You could put together a poetry book with this series. They are just amazing and fantastic.

Nora Johnson said...

Terrific ‘Z’ post – congrats! Would make a great book of poetry.

It’s been great meeting over the past 26 weeks too.

Have a great weekend,

LOLA:)

PS Mine this week is HERE. Hope you can join me!

Susan Deborah said...

Was zapped. Come on, who can write something on Z like this. Truly brilliant. Tell me how much time did you spend on this one? How do you usually write this?

Joy and love,
Susan

I like the idea of turning the past upside down and looking at it a new way. I never considered it a "zenith" but maybe it is.

mrs. c said...

Wow! how do you come up with this stuff! I have so enjoyed reading your posts each week, thanks for participating in Alphabe each week.

Pondside said...

Well done - and another writer was bang on when she/he said you should put these all together in a collection.

laterg8r said...

fantastic ending :D

Theresa said...

Exzellently Well Done!!! Happy Z day to you!

Jenny said...

Polly, what a wonderful conclusion to reading your posts throughout Alphabe-Thursday.

I loved this link. It spoke to me. And not in that crazy schizo woman kinda way that is frightening, but more so in the heart-warming way that occurs when I read your writing.

Thank you for linking!

A+
