September Music 7

For the month of September I am going to choose a piece of music or song and write a poem or alternative version. Jane Dougherty is doing a September Stanza here. And Kat Myrman is doing September a poem a day Here

Today’s piece of music is Tubular Bells by Mike Oldfield.

My poem is a Cinquain

Light sharp

Flashing, strobe like

Dancing before your eyes

Magical mystical music

Enthralls.

August Stanza 29

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.

Today’s Poem is a Cinquain.

Dream time

The spirits speak

Aboriginal Mists

Clouds and earth have stories to tell

Visions.

Daily Poetry , August. Cinquain.

In July I did a Terza Rima of 31 stanzas along with Jane Dougherty and Kat Myrman. It’s the 1st August and so I thought I would try out some different types of poetry this month. I am starting with a Cinquain.

Check out what Jane and Kat are doing this month.

Kat is doing this :August Stanza a Day Challenge: A short 3,4, or 5 line poem 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

 Eerrie Cinquain.

Uncommon costume

Scary, frightening, spooky

Witches, goblins, making mischief

Ghostly.

Writingdesk . Cinquain.

   Colleen Chesebro of Fairy Whisperer suggested we try writing a cinquain this morning on her blog here . I also saw that Jane Dougherty had also put out a ‘Sort of  Challenge’ calling it  Surroundings. 

Well I thought why not combine the two.  I have used Jane’s photo of her desk. A place for putting things  but using a little poetic licence I have attempted a cinquain. The word count is not correct but the syllables are. Forgive I am learning. 

You can join in both challengs I have enclosed the links above. So thanks to Colleen and Jane here is my effort.

Cinquain: His Eyes

His eyes 

Blue like deep pools 

Beguiling, and tempting 

Huge open windows of the soul, 

I see.
