Doctor Who and the Tardis

208-08-august-13th-2017

Some creatures here to destroy the earth
Call the Doctor for all its worth
The blue Tardis landing with all whirs
Here to destroy the earth, some creatures

Bigger inside than the Tardis actually is
The Doctor saving the princess
From the Daleks on his own stride
The Tardis actually is, bigger inside

The Master is the Doctor’s Moriarty
The Cybermen coming from the sea
Other Time Lords and Davros in anger
The Doctor’s Moriarty is the Master

The eccentric Doctor Who and his Tardis
Coming to help the earth with his whisk
One phone call and earth is safe as we knew
His Tardis and the eccentric Doctor Who*

Seeking Some Shade Today?

p1110985

He glimpsed a figure standing in the shade
A lady in pink and her hair all braid
The wind blew, black hair down her sides cascade
Who was she and why was she in the greyed?
Was she in trouble and needed some aid?
She’s so pretty, he wants to serenade
Was it all a dream as the figure fades?*

* Monorhyme

warmth

the lazy sun peeks
birds sing in harmony
swimming in the shade

swimming in the shade
alone thinking about love
witness by nature

Glass of Love

through-the-looking-glass
Dioga Costta

A trip back in time
A trip behind a looking glass
Glass reflecting life
Glass of dream
Dream of Zen and Zuri
Dream of playing a violin
Violin in a band
Violin in a bag
Bag of autumn leaves
Bag of stones
Stones to push
Stones so heavy
Heavy laugh
Heavy to carry
Carry with bare hands
Carry the answer
Answer the question
Answer the agent
Agent of fiction
Agent of truth
Truth or lies
Truth be told
Told to be good
Told of the smoke
Smoke not cool
Smoke not good
Good for Zen and Zuri
Good or bad
Bad dreams
Bad company
Company meeting
Company of wolves
Wolves in the woods
Wolves big bad wolf
Wolf with bare teeth
Wolf to go back
Back to the future
Back to the garden
Garden of Eden
Garden in the autumn
Autumn leaves scents
Autumn quite cold
Cold cuts
Cold wind
Wind blowing
Wind of love
Love of nature
Love of living
Living
Nature*

* 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.
