Mean What You Say… sort of – The very fun prompt suggested by Walt comprises a list of words whose antonyms we are supposed to use to make our poems.
### Here are the original suggestions and then, my chosen antonyms ###
impair – sanction;
timidity – boldness;
chaste – corrupted;
sober – naive;
power – weakness;
loudly – sotto-voce;
angel – demon;
transparent – obscure;
skulduggery – purity;
problem – strength
Springtime boldness of desire, sanctioning our weakness,
Corrupted, though naive, just whispering
In sotto-voce, like a demon struggling
To obscure our judgment, our better wisdom
And fighting back the purity of frost
The silent strength of winter in our souls,
