The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS June 25, 2022

Hi its Saturday and time for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. She popped in yesterday to give us all her prompt, she said: “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “product/produce.” Use one, use them both, use them any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use both. Have fun!”. You can join in here.

Product and Produce

What is the product of twelve and four
Sixteen, no less no more.
Also the shops are full of products
Everything from factory made TVs to rubber ducks.
The farmer toils every day for his produce
Potatoes, greens, wheat and fruit juice.
The market stalls and high street shops
All full of produce and products.

When we are pregnant we produce a child
We love them and they drive us wild
We keep them safe and educate
The product of this is their living fate
The product of a happy life
Be you, husband, sister, brother wife.
Is to go and meet your maker
Who’ll produce a list of your wins or losses be you Buddist or Quaker.

There are more meanings to these words
They can be used often and fly like birds.
But for me my time and rhyme is done.
I hope you’ve liked it and had some fun.

Ronovan Writes Sijo Wednesday Poetry Challenge #15. Use SUMMER as your inspiration this week.

Fields of gold stretch for miles to the horizon as far as the eye can see.
Sunflowers turn their faces to the sky yellow and green reaching for blue.
Gaia is at her best her skirts swirling around.

Reality

Caught up with life, the hustle and bustle of everyday.
Occupied by screens, blaring out too loud.
We don’t listen to Gaia, her warning voice speaks of reality, we choose not to hear.

#TankaTuesday Weekly Poetry Challenge No. 277: #Tastetherainbow-Colour Poetry.

© Colleen Chesebro.

Colleen is here with her prompt she said : “Hello everyone. Happy June and Pride Month! This week, choose a syllabic form and a colour to feature in your poem. If the form is from the #TankaTuesday cheat sheet, 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 colour in a poem.”

I have chosen a Sijo this week . Which is a Korean form believed to have first been used in the fourteenth century. It is similar in structure to various Japanese forms such as Haiku. As with many forms of poetry, the Sijo became a preferred poetry form of the yangban or ruling class as well as royalty. They were written in Chinese and were originally short songs set to music. The focus of the Sijo is usually nature and contemplation.

There are: Three Lines
14-16 syllables per line
A total of 44-46 syllables for the entire poem.

So many layers of colour to the cake a profusion of love
Pride has more than one meaning, though all of them are valid
Whichever tune you march to be true to each other always

You can bring bouquets by the score, chocolates, wine and candle light

#TankaTuesday Weekly #Poetry Challenge No. 276, 5/31/22, #ShareYourDay

Colleen Chesebro

WELCOME TO #TANKATUESDAY!

It’s the fifth Tuesday of the month!  #ShareYourDay is a way to get to know each other better. Take a photo and write a syllabic poem about your day. Don’t think on it too hard. Make it fun. The photo does not need to be a selfie. If you don’t have access to a camera, find an image on Pixabay.com (please add the credits) that best describes your day.

Today I have written about three Jewels in my life, who always cheer me up. I have written a Cinqku. A Cinqku must always have 5 lines and a perfect seventeen-syllable count. The lines typically follow a 2,3,4,6,2 format. There is no title requirement on the second line. As for syntax and diction styles, it follows the free Tanka style originally. There are no metric requirements for a cinqku poem. Additionally, the final line must contain a cinquain or kireji turn for emphasis.  I added a twist I linked three Cinqku and have called them a Cinqku chain.

® willowdot21

These are
Three Jewels
In my life’s crown
Happy boys and Ruby.
Sparkly

Sparkly
They lift my
Mood and my day
Their innocence shines out
Golden

Golden
Memories
For me to store
The grandsons and Ruby
Happy.

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 412 BEAST and Steam.

Haiku Challenge
Ronovanwrite’s .

Yesterday we went to a gentle soul’s funeral. He died too soon, too suddenly but he did not leave this life without touching so many. Go safe Bob.

******

Death is the cold beast
No one ever escapes him
As old as the Earth
We can let off steam and scream
No one ever escapes it.

Part of Ronovanwrite’s Weekly Haiku, though I needed to say more , so I wrote a Tanka.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS May 28, 2022.

Badge by Shelley Krupa..

Hi everyone it’s Saturday again and time for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Linda has dropped everyone a Friday reminder, except John W. Howell at Fiction Favourites who gets so much more than he ever wanted in terms of strange cartoon characters, low flying planes and weird UPS deliveries…. Lucky for the rest of us we get an email and this week it said :

‘Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “trail/trial.” Use one, use both, use them any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use both. Have fun!

© willowdot21

The trail was narrow and shady
We walked in hope and the companionship
You running on, bouncing like crazy
If speparted we would double back quick.

You are always so good, never a trial
Your loving caring ways always brings a smile.
There to protect us while we’re out on the trail
I trust you so our bond will never fail.

Now your getting older the trail is way too hard.
Your old bones ache and your enjoyment marred.
A short walk now can be such a trial for you.
So we lift you gently into the car and take you somewhere new.

You have never been a trial
We’ve loved you all the while
So we keep you out of pain
So you can dream that we are out on the trail again.

Tingling in your body and your hair stands on end.
Your heart beats faster skipping beats, sweat prickles your brow .
Anticipation and excitement are natures healthy drugs, keeping the world turning
