DMC: "Passing By" by Angelique Pacheco


She twists and twirls
She billows and curls
She flicks up her legs
Her dance flows with grace
He breathes her in
He breathes her out
The curtains move
The breeze passes through
A love affair
But never standing still.

Calef Brown has challenged us to write a poem that tells the story of two anthropomorphized objects. They can be an odd couple, close friends, mortal enemies, or meet each other for the first time. The poem can be about an adventure they have together, a conflict, a game they play, anything. Click HERE for more details and to read this month's Spotlight ON interview.

Post your poem on our October 2018 padlet by October 31st. While some contributions will be featured as daily ditties, all contributions will be included in a wrap-up presentation on Friday, November 2nd, and one lucky participant will win a signed copy of Calef Brown's latest collection of ghoulish poetry from Carolrhoda Books:


  1. I love the gentle, lyrical voice of this poem, Angelique. I'm realizing more and more how many different ways there really are to approach this challenge!

  2. It's a lovely idea for a pairing, like a sweet dance between them.

  3. This is wonderful. What a great pairing and what a lyrical poem. Thanks.

  4. I can see this whole dance taking place. Lovely.

  5. Oh, this is just lovely! I love the image of that curtain dancing in the breeze. Well done!
