August Stanza 27

It is August and so Jane is doing : a chain of images each one suggested by the last word in the preceding poem. They’ll be short, a single image of just a few lines. It will be interesting to see where it ends up by the end of the month.

Kat will be doing short 3,4, or 5 line poems no syllable counts of rhymes, starting with the word ‘August’ on the first day. The last word of the poem will be the first word of day two’s poem, and so on until the end of the month.

Finally I shall be doing all types of poetry but each poem will start with the last word in the preceding poem.

Todays Poem is An Irregular Ode.

Summer her name and her nature too

Attired like an Iris in gold and blue

Like a breath of fresh air her perfume begiles

She is a bouquet of soft words and smiles.

Her hair like golden flax challenges the sun

Her voice will bring you silver dreams she has spun.

She is my love, my light and my life.

To make her my bride is my challenge in life.

Ireland’s Holocaust heroine

The true story of an unsong Heroine that we should all share

soundiland’s Holocaust heroine

So here are some of my favourite sights. Firstly 😀 sexy VW Beetle with eye lashes and smily face mirrors! Big car transporter and white Porsche .. present for one of our grandsons. Hubby’s car which I always envy!

Above two shots of a Rolls Royce car at Highclere Castle. Above that an electric car on charge in London near the Inns of Court.

The Maroon beauty is WW2 car seen at Bletchley Park

And lastly but not least my car, I love the colour “Deep Impact Blue”.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Late Notice.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “notice.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy.

Welcome to our new badge from Pamela Jessen

Notice if you will that again I am very late posting my #SoCs for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Well I noticed yesterday how behind I am falling with reading blogs, commenting and posting!

Now I have just noticed that this is not a very good post . In my defense all I can say is it’s been a busy weekend and today mother in law is visiting and she hates me or my husband even lifting our phones when she is here.

So I have rushed the housework and quickly done this SoCs post.

Please notice I just made it..

Happy Sunday all.💜😁

Song Lyric Sunday, Plan. 26/08/18

This is my entry for Helen Vahdati’s Song Lyric Sunday.

I have not much time today as Mother in law is due, no phones or computers allowed when she visits (it all about her) and why not.

So I have picked two of my favourites.

First Oasis and Master Plan. An all time favourite of mine. Very Beatlesques.

“The Masterplan”

Take the time to make some sense
Of what you want to say
And cast your words away upon the waves
Sail them home with acquiesce
On a ship of hope today
And as they land upon the shore
Tell them not to fear no more

Say it loud and sing it proud today

And then dance if you wanna dance
Please brother take a chance
You know they’re gonna go
Which way they wanna go
All we know is that we don’t know
How it’s gonna be
Please brother let it be
Life on the other hand
Won’t make us understand
We’re all part of the masterplan

Say it loud and sing it proud today…

I’m not saying right is wrong
It’s up to us to make
The best of all the things that come our way
‘Cause everything that’s been has passed
The answer’s in the looking glass
There’s four and twenty million doors
On life’s endless corridor

Say it loud and sing it proud today.

Well, dance if they want to dance
Please brother take a chance
You know they’re gonna go
Which way they wanna go
All we know is that we don’t know
How it’s gonna be
Please, brother, let it be
Life on the other hand
Won’t make you understand
We’re all part of the masterplan

AtoZ Lyrics

XTC and Making plans for Nigel.

“Making Plans For Nigel”

We’re only making plans for Nigel
We only want what’s best for him
We’re only making plans for Nigel
Nigel just needs this helping hand
And if young Nigel says he’s happy
He must be happy
He must be happy in his work
We’re only making plans for Nigel
He has his future in a British steel
We’re only making plans for Nigel
Nigel’s whole future is as good as sealed
And if young Nigel says he’s happy
He must be happy
He must be happy in his work
Nigel is not outspoken
But he likes to speak
And loves to be spoken to
Nigel is happy in his work
We’re only making plans for Nigel

Today’s Poem is a Tanka.

Away summer blows

Chill nips my fingers and toes

Thousands of rain drops

Fall onto the roofs plip plop

Tomorrow may be summer.💜

Finally I shall be doing all types of poetry but each poem will start with the last word in the preceding poem.

Today’s poem is a play on Lady Macbeth’s speech from the Shakespearean play Macbeth. Losely Shakespearean Dialogue. With a tip of hat to Geoff at TanGental.

Out out damned spot

Have I scrubbed you or not.

My fingers raw and bleeding

I think some bleach is what we’re needing.

Out, out damned spot

What is this stain we’ve got

You have been through the machine twice

Do I have to do you thrice

Out, out damned spot

I am so stressed about your blot

I have had enough, so get thee to a bin

I care not if to waste is a sin

Out, out damned spot

My nerves are shot!

You may have me today

But it was you who got thrown away.

Today’s Poem is possibly a pattern poem, just off the top of my head! (It is ten lines long starting at one syllable growing to five then descending from five to one syllable.)

Trial,

To test

To invest

In the future

Grow and mature

Experimental

Inivative

Changing spell

A try

Out.

Thursday photo prompt: Caught #writephoto

The Sun and the Ent.

“Oh!” Cried the Sun, “you must let me go”

The glorious Ent shook his head and said “No.”

“Please” cried the Sun her worse fears altered

“No” cooed the Ent “your escape must be averted.”

Weeping the Sun bowed her head

“Please” said the Ent “the moon is already dead.”

The Sun felt her tears turning to steam.

The Ent held her fast, though he wanted to scream.

“Tell me” sobbed the Sun, “why has my brother died?”

The Ent shook his head and said “to save him I tried.”

“Why”asked the Sun “is everything so sad.”

“Because” said the Ent “the world has gone mad.”
