Olympic Surfing.

Sadly to me it’s out of reach
New disaplines are now out there.
Fast, dangerous so have a care.
Let’s go to Tsurigasaki beach
The excitement my skin will bleach.
I need to see the surfers fly
Below blue sea, above blue sky
Giant waves lift and carry dreams.
The odd wipeout brings shouts and screams .
No idea how the judges score
Huge waves, water funnels and more.
To win gold medals they all try.

2020 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 204, #THEMEPROMPT

WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!

It’s the fourth week of the month! Are you ready for a theme prompt?

This month’s theme is a haiku written by Sue Vincent:

clouds cover the moon,
beyond dawn’s pale horizon
sun rises unseen
.

Please use the above haiku to inspire your own syllabic poetry. There’s a lot to unpack in these words. What will your interpretation be? Go where the words take you.

I wrote an Etheree in honour of the Dawn.

New Hope

A
Sliver
Of silver.
A ray of hope
Night shades wrapped and cloaked.
Dawn dancing on her way
With stealth she starts a new day
Silver and gold look glorious
Bright skirts swirling around, hope for us.
Secretly ringing the changes of life.

This is part of Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday Tanka.

Thursday photo prompt: Setting #writephoto

This is my entry for Sue Vincent of the Daily Echo’s #writephoto, Setting.

I have decided to try and write an Acrostic Etheree.

Setting Sun.

Sun

Ebbing.

The sands of

Time teetering,

In seconds, minutes

Nothing left for it to

Give, save golden memories

Sun set time for recovering

Upon the distant hill she perches

Now night approaches it’s dark arms outstretched.

Lune day 12

At Kat Myrman‘s suggestion,along with Jane Dougherty, I’m trying out the Lune form this month. The Lune is a three line poem, either 5/3/5 syllables or 3/5/3 words.

Blue skies puffy clouds

Ruby, me

My heart sings out loud

Florescence Day Five.

Day five of the Florescence, courtesy of its creator, Jane Dougherty.

Bright sun was out today

By the sea we did play

Blue sky sunshine hooray, a highlight.

Friday Thoughts

Friday thoughts

The sun keeps playing PeepBo

With clouds skidding across the sky

First the temperature is high then low

I am feeling calm, I don’t know why.
Dog at feet she loves the heat

Dreaming of earlier walk she sighs

Above  helicopters with the planes compeat

Bids sing and vapour trails adorn the skies.

Sitting here is rare for me

With dog sleeping gently worry free

Usually too busy to smell the Rose,

See what I have, or feel the breeze as it blows.

Song Lyric Sunday. The Sun

In 1964  the  Beatles  released  “I’ll follow  the  Sun” I was  then  11 years  old ingand  even  though  I  was a huge  Rolling Stones   fan  this  song stuck a  cord in  my  heart  and  always  will. On  my  darkest  days  you  can  often  find  me  sing  this  song!

THE BEATLES LYRICS

“I’ll Follow The Sun”

One day you’ll look to see I’ve gone
For tomorrow may rain, so I’ll follow the sun
Some day you’ll know I was the one
But tomorrow may rain, so I’ll follow the sun

And now the time has come
And so my love I must go
And though I lose a friend
In the end you will know, oooh

One day you’ll find that I have gone
But tomorrow may rain, so I’ll follow the sun

Yea, tomorrow may rain, so I’ll follow the sun
And now the time has come
And so my love I must go
And though I lose a friend
In the end you’ll know, oooh

One day you’ll find that I have gone
But tomorrow may rain, so I’ll follow the sun

Lyrics  from  A to  Z  Lyrics 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In 1967 I  was  14years  old, I  was  going to  Top of  the Pop  when I  could, parents  and Homework permitting. I had  met  my  husband   and  and  in  three  more  years  I  would  be married, give  me  another  two years  and I  would  be  having  my  first son.

So  Traffic  and  Paper  Sun  always  makes  me  think of  sunny  day  that  were full of  fun…. well that is  what  the  music  brings  to  mind  ,  the  reality  was  nothing of  the  sort.

The  video  is  very odd  and has  nothing  to  do  with  the  song? But it is  interesting in  a  weird  way  and  it  shows  the  group  together  which is  rare  as  they  split  up  due  to  artistic  differences.

The  weather  here is  wet  damp  and  nasty, we had  a  bout of freezing  fog  and  frosty  ground , which  was better  than  the  horrible  weather  we have  now. I  am dreaming of  the  sun  and  feeling  better.

 

TRAFFIC LYRICS

“Paper Sun”

So you think your having good times
With the boy that you just met
Kicking sand from beach to beach
Your clothes all soaking wet
But if you look around and see
A shadow on the run
Don’t be too upset because its just a paper sun

Ahh Paper Sun, Ahh Paper Sun

In the room where you’ve been sleeping
All your clothes all thrown about
Cigarettes burn window sills
Your meter’s all run out
But then again its nothing
You just split when day is done
Pitching lips to nowhere, hung up on the paper sun

Standing in the cool of my room
Fresh cut flowers give me sweet perfume
Too much sun will burn!

When you’re feeling tired and lonely
You see people going home
You can’t make the train fare
Or the six pence for the phone
And icicles your crying
From your cheek have just begun
Dont be sad, good times are had
Beneath the paper sun

Daylight breaks while you sleep on the sand
A seagull is stealing the ring from your hand
The boy who had given you so much fun
Has left you so cold in the paper sun

Lyrics  from  A to Z Lyrics

Then of  course  if  all else  fails  there  is  always  Mr  Blue  Sky  by  ELO Released in  1977 a  true  Happy  Classic!

Please enjoy  my  three Sun  offerings  and  my  trip  down  memory  lane . Goodness  knows  I  need  some  sun  now!!

Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday is to celebrate the sun.  You can interpret it any way you’d like through music, meaning you can even post a song that only has the word “sun” in it, or really any other way you can fathom.

Acrostic Poem: Sunday.

Sleep deserted me  earlier  than usual not being  a  stayer  of late

Ukind as  sleep is at  the moment I decided  to  start  the day

Now  I was happy  to see  the  sun was shining , lifting  my spirits, great!

Dancing  flowers relieved not  to be wet happily  in the  warmth did sway.

At last  my  spirits   begin to  soar, ignoring  tomorrow  will be Monday once more!

Yesterday so  dull and  dreary but today  warmth  and  sun left  me less weary.
