Spread some love and cheer by giving a shout-out to the best piece you have read last week or so.
The baristas at Go Dog Go Cafe are big fans of Pay It Forward Thursdays. We think it is a great opportunity to give a shout-out to another writer who has wowed us or creatively inspired us. However, Pay It Forward Thursday has not been getting a lot of love lately, which we think is a shame. Dear reader, you are losing out on some great writing! We’ve decided to shake things up a little and the baristas will be reblogging our Pay It Forward picks for the week directly onto GDG Cafe so you don’t miss out on our favorites.
We like this idea so much that we will also reblog the posts you think were the best thing you read this week if you drop a link below. You are invited to post one link to one specific post (600 words or less please!) from someone…

Use the words “wicked chill” in any form of poetry or prose.
Stay warm my friends. Get those words warmed up and flowing!
They say you can find
your destiny in the tea leaves
sticking at the bottom of the cup
encircling and leaving patterns
easy to deciphered and
making the patterns
that zig-zag mesh
resembling the events in your life
Marking your ups and downs
all the important events
which make them truly shine
It’s an art they say
I gaze with a child like
my mouth agape in
and horror at the same time
How mere broken leaves
from a plant forgotten,
narrate my story
when you so conveniently
ignore the scars the
time has left on mine.
