Visions of violet

Visions of life

Life as we know it

Life full of love and flowers

Flowers of spring

Flowers sheltered in the garden

Garden with pond

Garden with turtle

Turtle as pet

Turtle cared by the boy

Boy watching

Boy walking

Walking with stick

Walking in the mountain

Mountain to climb

Mountain of fun

Fun with friends

Fun giving

Giving your all

Giving your trust

Trust with your life

Trust once broken

Broken heart and soul

Broken promises

Promises with diversion

Promises not fulfilled

Fulfilled dreams

Fulfilled ambition

Ambition not too high

Ambition to reach

Reach for the stars

Reach out

Out with the truth

Out with friends

Friends having coffee

Friends always there

There for me

There come what may

May June and July

May the flowers bloom

Bloom with all the colours

Bloom red red rose

Rose and lavender

Rose and Violet

Violet my favourite

Violet my love

Love that last

Love forever

The Blitz Poem, a poetry form created by Robert Keim.

This form of poetry is a stream of short phrases and images with repetition and rapid flow.

Begin with one short phrase, it can be a cliché. Begin the next line with another phrase that begins with the same first word as line 1. The first 48 lines should be short, but at least two words.

The third and fourth lines are phrases that begin with the last word of the 2nd phrase, the 5th and 6th lines begin with the last word of the 4th line, and so on, continuing, with each subsequent pair beginning with the last word of the line above them, which establishes a pattern of repetition.

Continue for 48 total lines with this pattern, And then the last two lines repeat the last word of line 48, then the last word of line 47.

The title must be only three words, with some sort of preposition or conjunction joining the first word from the third line to the first word from the 47th line, in that order.

There should be no punctuation. When reading a BLITZ, it is read very quickly, pausing only to breathe.
