OUT, OUT DAMN SPOT

Here is An old poem of mine, 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 of had me today

But it was you who got thrown away.

#TankaTuesday Weekly #Poetry Challenge No. 251, #SynonymsOnly or #TasteTheRainbow

This week Colleen is trying something new, unfortunately both Pat’s (who was going to supply our two words this month) blogs has disappeared into the blogespher. This is what Colleen has said.

“Pat, (WildChild47) from last month’s challenge choose the two words for this month. 

Her blogs have since been deleted… I’m not sure what happened. But this gave me the opportunity to try something new!

TASTE the Rainbow!

Write a butterfly cinquain (2-4-6-8-2-8-6-4-2) and include a color. Remember, colors can be a metaphor for feelings such as someone’s blue when they are sad. Sometimes when we mention a particular flower’s name, it brings the color of the flower to mind. The butterfly cinquain below is a rainbow of flower colors with only one color mentioned. Colors are a great way to show vivid imagery in your poetry.

"The Happiness of Flowers" 

lilacs,
red daylilies,
lily of the valley,
lavender, and delphinium—
flowers
that bring joyfulness to my heart
tending the soil with love,
rainfall awards
new growth

OR

Use the two words below:

Peddle and Winkle

For the synonyms only poetry challenge, if you write your poem using synonyms, write your poem in the forms defined on the cheat sheet OR from the forms found on Poetscollective.org.

I thought I could combine both options and I have written a Butterfly Cinquain using two colours, red and blue. Also I have used the two given words synonymously. Sell for peddle, and winkle and laughter lines for crinkle. I do hope it has worked and can make us smile.

Golden
I am glowing
As I sell happiness.
My face is a winkle and smile
Spreading
Joy for my wares, my red passion
My wings spread far and wide
Laughter lines fill
My soul.
