2010 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 30

All our writing sites are currently down, but I don't want that to (completely) spoil the final day of the 2010 November PAD Chapbook Challenge. Here are today's two-for-Tuesday poetry prompts:
  1. Write a lessons learned poem. Could be lessons learned by the narrator or someone (or something) else.
  2. Write a never going to learn poem.
Here's my attempt:

"Lessons learned living here"

Believe it or not, the world is getting
heavier and lighter at the same time.

Thanks for posting the prompt up here, Robert! Posting the two on my blog until the website resolves itself...

Thankfully, there's not a lot I can do in a concrete way, so the site being down won't be a great disappointment. Over the my blog:
"Through the Eyes of a Poet's Heart" for my initial submission.

It was a great run this year, Robert, wasn't it? Virtually glitch free. So a little closing adventure is in order, I think. Cheers for being unstoppable!

Shari, I'm still hoping for a completely glitch-free challenge. Maybe in April?

Walt, thanks for another great month!

Joseph and Vivinfrance, you both rock!
