Grasp – Daily Prompt


O Romeo my Romeo, where art thou?
Come and pluck me from this routine
Your ability to love as you endow
You are my King, I am your Queen
Grasp and use your invisible cloak
I want to flow freely like a stream
Let’s not suffer from heart broke
With great affection and high esteem
Let’s gather our gutsy feeling
List the varied types of strengths
For it’s not every day we feel amazing
Got to go as far as their lengths
Two bodies become one soul
Pure love and devotion to extol

Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 75: “Patience & Green” #SnynonymsOnly

– Ryn-Sweet-Surreal

Tuesday is my favourite day. After school, Mum is taking me to Irish dancing. I always wear something verdant and matches my eyes. With tenacity, I am learning the basic steps and having fun with my friends from the village. I need to have a rigid upper body and the footwork is so intricate. Practice, practice, practice, my teacher says. After the dance practice, we’re allowed to have some ice-cream and that’s the best part.

with friends from the village

Sunday Writing Prompt “Butterfly Effect”


THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “The Hand-Carved Loon” by Robert Adamson: poem, balsa, bird, head, glides, murk, bottom, waves, sleek, things, made, cuts

The butterfly effect
Waves alter and things change
Birds tweet, poems strange
Sleek view and aspect
Balsa boat which shipwrecked
You and I seem estrange

At the bottom was murk
I made some cutting notes
Which you frequently quote
I glide and make a smirk
Which make you so berserk
Don’t know what our endnotes

I shake my head and go
Life is so and it flows*

Overlooking the capital is the hilltop Buddhist temple of Wat Leu. (Wikipedia)
