“LL” Challenge: Alluvium
I’ve just completed the SOLSC15 month-long challenge. It’s time to write more. Daily “Double LL” prompts will be given. They all can connect to nature.
Anyone who shares a poem in the comments or a link, will be eligible for a Poetry Book Prize Package. I am waiting to hear about one item before I announce the contents.
Today’s word: ALLUVIUM
Definition: from Latin, to wash against. Deposits of earth sand. Made by rivers and floods.

This from my friend, Dr. Rick McGrath:
hinders my present efforts
to doubt tomorrow’s storms
wash away my troubled past
I love your LL challenge Jone! The Poetry Friday poets are so creative! I hope I have some days where I can write a poem. I do not know the word alluvium so this is helping my vocabulary! So much to enjoy in NaPoWrMo!! Thanks, Jone.
Pockets of streams settle
Into alluvium deposits
Curving, stretching, shaping
Themselves into visual codes
I attempt to decipher.

Jone, I started my Poetry Parade with your Double LL challenge. It can be found at http://beyondliteracylink.blogspot.com/2015/04/poetry-parade.html. Still working on the design of Winter Whisperings, soon to be unveiled.

I got going with the double letters! Thanks, Jone, and for leading the way on the next big challenge!
Llovelly. I have an A today, but no double Ls. There will be a bullfrog in tomorrow’s poem!
