CreativeBloomingsBox

TO ALL CONTRIBUTORS AND FORMER CONTRIBUTORS TO THE CREATIVE BLOOMINGS (POETIC BLOOMINGS) POETRY SITES:

After a brief absence and reorganization, these sites have been transformed into the PHOENIX RISING POETRY GUILD. We continue to offer weekly prompts and exercises meant to instruct and hone our poetic skills. Currently we are in the midst of our annual JULY P.A.D.

The theme for 2015 is DestinationPoetry – TRAVELOG. 

Our worldwide junket has visited the Tower of London and Stonehenge in the UK, Washington D.C. and Times Square in the U.S. so far. Today, we visit the Calgary Stampede in Canada. If you’ve been away, please join us again.

It’s not too late!

PHOENIX RISING JULY P.A.D. TRAVELOG – DESTINATION: CALGARY STAMPEDE

StampedeThe Calgary Stampede is an annual rodeo, exhibition and festival held every July in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The ten-day event, which bills itself as “The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth”, attracts over one million visitors per year and features one of the world’s largest rodeos, a parade, midway, stage shows, concerts, agricultural competitions, chuckwagon racing and First Nations exhibitions.

Wrap your poem around the idea of a rodeo, exhibition or a festival and “Gitty-up!”
