One Stop Poetry @ http://onestoppoetry.com/ is hosted today by Gay Cannon, who is offering a wonderfully detailed look at meter and line in poetry, prompting us to write or re-write some lines in iambs and anapests.
Mondays Child fair of face @ http://childrensverse.blogspot.com/ Has given us this wonderful picture prompt, asking only that we write a piece of children's poetry, verse, or post your interpertation of the prompt....after you have finished - link your site here and on your blog link back to Monday's Child.
The Prompt from Monday Memories...is a memory of a sibling or an event, you can find them @ http://memories-on-mondays.blogspot.com
Last but not least (at least in our eyes LOL) here at Dodge Writes we are doing a Tanka
(syllable count of 5, 7, 5, 7, 7)
So first we will do the Tanka with Mondays child's prompt... OURS IS...
My bed is a boat
I float in a sea of dreams
to places unseen
Come away to see far lands
we could start by holding hands
And now for the One Stop and Mondays Memories... We hope we get this right !! OURS IS...
My sister and I were not well behaved
and left on our own we often had played
with stuff in the yard or on our big horse
all the things that we should not have of course
One time that rings bells in my memory
brought so much trouble for Julie and me
the large jars of noxzema that mom once had
in food fight style (man, we were so bad)
The fun we had on that long ago day
still can bring smiles to each in our way
though mom was much less than happy with us
we still think the fun was worth all the fuss
LOL it really was fun, but the clean up ... not so much !
