Okay. Sigh.

I used a very scientific method to choose my first challenge from my own poetic buffet (which I will reveal at a later date) but? for those who know me? you KNOW--I did indeed stick to the plan--because I HATE writing haiku/senryu--whatever...

(serenity is now tempted to "neener" HERSELF. hmmm? now that would be a gift, now wouldn't it? )

but sigh, at least I got this one out of the way...

pphhhhhhhllllbbbbbbbttttttttt:

But DO have fun! mmmm..."b'bye!"

Good grief.  At first I thought the last one was calzone and I thought you were going to feed us while we played your maniacal game.  But noooooooo....not to be.

Grief.

Sigh.

  May we do more than one?

Hey! Where is our sweet Wind?! She must choose the word "yellow".....she must!! Come on Wind...you mentioned it in one of your challenge poems as being your favourite colour! It will be great! Come on!
As for myself.....duh...I can't believe how many forms of poetry there are, nevermind choose one, and try to learn how to write it!! Good grief! Homework....homework....Chris mutters as she heads for the kitchen and something sweet to get her sugar level back up.

Chuckle...wasn't expecting anybody to actually play--what are ya'll--CRAZY?

laughing, and ethel? since nobody can agree on what Canzone is, feel free to substitute Rictameter for that one.

And YES? Where is Wind? Vicky and I threw in the color yellow ESPECIALY for her!



I'm still checking my eyelids for holes over here, good poets--be back after while...

Holy Cow!!! Wind you are not going to believe this......!!! I went outside and sat in the sun....well, that's easy to believe...but I wrote my first triolet(I think) and it is Branches!!!!!!!! I had not even read your post! I think we are all connected somehow...like when pretzels break in the bag and get hooked together! Huh? Oh, dear too much sun. Anyway....here it is http://piptalk.com/pip/Forum80/HTML/003727.html   Don't laugh too much okay? I tried.

Okay, Karen...wanna hear something almost scary?

I decided to use my OWN highly scientific
method to come up with my first challenge.
Would you believe?...2-g?...I kid you not!

If I didn't know better, I'd think I was lying...LOL.

*Vicky exits...wondering what KAREN'S scientific
method consists of*

LOL @ YOUR 'scientific' method.

It's ALMOST as highly scientific as mine was.

I took a deck of cards and drew one card (a 2)
for the theme, and a second card (a 7) for the form. LOL.

Gotta love it...

You know what? looking at these..I am seeing were they come from..like the cockroach (serenity) And the color yellow (me) broom (most likely serenity's if it can fly... ) I am reading your mind right now..

yellow is repedative..I'll do 7..7 and free verse. 7 is my unlucky number. And if ya think that's weird..my lucky number is 13. I love irony
