The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Feb. 16/19 Yawn

Well ten minutes ago I had a brilliant idea for #SoCs. Then I got distracted by some some beautiful posts in my reader and here I am clueless as to what this world changing post was about!pro

Well it most definitely was something to do with a yawn. How do I remember that. Easy because this week Linda G.Hill said : ” Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “yawn.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the word “yawn,” when you sit down to write your post. Enjoy!”

Now our Ruby yawns a lot, she yawns if she feels someone or something is invading her space, or if she is confused or bored and of course she yawns if she is tired.

Us humans yawn when tired, stressed or lacking oxygen. have you ever yawned and felt your jaw lock… oh my that can be so painful! Also if one person in a room yawns it is very  catching and everyone in  the room yawns. Now as you can see I am rambling on here and it is no doubt very boring. Very much unlike the wonderful post I was going to write had it escaped my brain and vanished into the either never to be seen again.

To save further embarrassment I have  added s to Yawn and  written an Acrostic Tanka.

Yawn

Yes we have to yawn

All of us as soon as born

Will know how to yawn

No one is exempt no one

So cover your mouth and yawn.

RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge #224 Art and Compass.

This is my entry for Ronovanwrites Weekly Haiku Prompt.

ronovan-writes-haiku-poertry-challenge-image-20161

I cheated skittle and did a Haiku and a Tanka.

Nature draws a wide

Compass her palate is huge

Her colours every hue

With only the stars

To guide, man used the old ways

Travelling was an art

No compass yet discovered

Stars by night and sun by day.

September Music 2.

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 music is O! Fortuna , Carmina Burana by Carl Orff.

Arthurian Tanka

His sword flashes bright

Cloak of red, his armour light

He serves the true king.

To search for the Holy Grail

He always will serve his king.

August Stanza 26

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 Tanka.

Away summer blows

Chill nips my fingers and toes

Thousands of rain drops

Fall onto the roofs plip plop

Tomorrow may be summer.💜

Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Bodily Functions. Lacrymosa Tanka.

Rules and Pingback Here

Lacrymosa

Tears fall from your eyes

Like raindrops from the grey skies.

Tear ducts working hard

Encouraged by emotions

You cry a thousand oceans.

Hero she mouthed

You have saved me from distress.

The dragon is dead

So we moved into the West

And rode toward the sunset.

Hope is a tyrant

Bidding us to do it’s will

Keeping us prisoner

Our chance of escape is scant.

Hope, is just a bitter pill.

Raven: Tanka

My blogging friend Jane Dougherty from Jane Dougherty Writes has been writing Haiku about Ravens recently. Today her Raven Haiku inspired me to write a Tanka about a Raven. Thanks Jane.

Raven not Craven.
Feathers dark, bright eyed

Soar betwixt heaven and earth

Tiny glint you spied.

Dive fast you are not craven

Hero, mine Spartan Raven.
