I was surprised and pleased to see how many of you got the bit between your teeth and had a go at this one. Some great poems came out of it. Here they are, in order of reception.
First in was Ken with a very apposite poem for me, given the quantity of water that’s dropped out of the sky and lashed our coastline in the last few days. It’s a global warning too.
Peter’s poem is also appropriate for those of us who have experienced a chagrin this month.
A lovely, happy poem from Kat Myrman. With a granddaughter like that who wouldn’t smile?
Carol, the writer’s dream sent in this one. Another tender poem complete with a rhyme scheme.
Kerfe sent this colourful poem. The repetition of the refrain line suits the geometric image very well, I think.
Doug’s grim, but very effective poem.
A first time entry from Crow. Another grim poem, with a very unsettling shift in the last line.
Back to the sunshine with this rather ethereal poem from Janice
And a beautifully painted floral seascape from Kim to end with!
There’s always one, isn’t there, who sends in a poem just after you think the list is complete? A final (maybe) dramatic entry from Jennifer.
As a bonus, Carolyn sent in a belated tritina which I’ll post here. Thanks for sending it, Carolyn, it’s a lovely one.
Thank you all for playing the game. This week’s challenge will be posted tomorrow. See you then 🙂
