Throwback Thursday – April 7 – #33 – Going to the Movies

Maggie and Lauren..

Thursday was yesterday which means it time for Maggie and Lauren’s join venture.

It’s Lauren’s choice for this week’s prompt for Throwback Thursday : Going to the Movies. 

Do you remember specific times you went to indoor movies or drive in theatres?

We didn’t have drive in Movies in the U.K. until very recently and as yet I have never been to a drive in movie!

Do you remember the first time for either?

The first film I can remember seeing as a child was when my mum took me to see Snow White , the original Disney version. It was truly the most wonderful thing I had ever seen.

I believe I went to see “A man for all seasons” a fantastic historical film set in the court of Henry VIII and the man for all seasons in question was Thomas Moore. Our convent was a five minute walk from the cinema so we all walked upon crocodile formation.🐊

Do you remember going with friends and not parents?

I remember going to the cinema with a girl friend or friends we usually went to see pop star films . We saw “Catch us if you can” starring the Dave Clarke Five, “Hold on” starring Herman’s Hermits. There were other films but I really can’t remember them 😊

Please share one or more experiences about going to the movies.

My sister Frankie took me to see Westside story again I was totally enthralled by the sing and dancing I loved it.

I must of been to the cinema in my courting days with hubby but I can’t remember…. I can remember more recent trips but not early ones. I also remember us taking the boys and often their friends to cinema : Star Trek, Star Wars, Flash Gorden (that was fun) A film where we all stood up and cheered!

.

and took the children to many more!

I also remember hubby and I and friends going to see Brave Heart…we stood and cheered at his speech before the battle and I don’t think there was a Scottish person in the cinema!

As I say there have been many many more and concerts too 💜💜

#TankaTuesday Weekly Poetry Challenge No. 268: 4/5/22 #Tastetherainbow-Color Poetry

This week, Colleen said : choose your own syllabic form and a color to feature in your syllabic poem. If the form is from the #TankaTuesday Cheatsheet, let us know so we know where to look for directions. If it’s a new form, share how to write it and where you found the instructions. Think about the different ways you can use color in a poem.”

P.S. 🌈 Taste the Rainbow refers to colors. You do not have to write about a rainbow in your poem. Just include a color in your poem.

THIS IS PART OF COLLEEN’S TANKA TUESDAY CHALLENGE.

To day I have chosen an Abhanga. Which is a poem in any number of 4-line stanzas with 6-6-6-4 syllables each. L2 and L3 rhyme. The end rhyme scheme is abbc. It is customary to title your poetry.

A Father’s Love

Warm is a father’s love
Golden like summer sun
Nurturing, yet with fun
Strong protecting.

Deep as azure kissed sea
Taking care, teaching well
All life’s problems he quells
Strong protection.

Pride like a rusty red
Glows in his loving heart
To teach you to be smart
Strong protection.
