    Next: ribbon, trove, kelp, oarfish, horizon, anchor

    Fata Morgana
    A large ribbon of beach
    exhibits a trove of oarfish.
    The sand is strewn with kelp.
    On the line of the horizon, a ship
    tries desperately to throw her anchor
    but that may be an illusion.

    New Challenge: icosahedron, key, midnight, rain, vault, between

    If I Were an Icosahedron...

    If I were an icosahedron,
    I would take walks at midnight
    by starlight or rain
    I would enjoy playing
    whit the paws of a cat
    and rolling into flower beds.

    If I were an icosahedron
    my heart would balance
    between beautiful Octa
    and charming Dodeca.
    Vaults I would avoid,
    but I would look very hard
    for the key to hedron happiness.

    Next: limerick, round, whisper, wasp, peanut, gangrene.

    tainted limerick

    had a friend who had a bout of gangrene... ick!
    got it from a wasp sting playing a round of stick
    started as a tongue irritation in the form of a blister
    in his stead since he could barely whisper
    I recited to his peanut gallery this tainted limerick

    Next: twig, fall, beckon, linen, moonlight, magic

    Moonlight magic

    I remember that beautiful girl
    that went out of the window
    wrapped in white linen
    to meet her lover.

    I remember they taking a chariot
    And disappearing in the moonlit night.
    And the ghastly figure wrapped in white linen
    that beckoned desperately out of the window.

    Girl, lover, chariot, ghost.
    none of them was ever seen by daylight.

    Me? I am just a twig fallen from the tree.

    Next: June, flowers, mystery, ancient, true, encounter.

    Challenge: June, flowers, mystery, ancient, true, encounter

    snow kissing the dogwood blossoms

    It's not exactly the month of June
    so it's no mystery to bees, trees
    or flowers here abouts - but there's
    snow kissing the dogwood blossoms
    today - an ancient Spring encounter
    looked forward to, it's true, which
    heralds the official end of Winter in
    these here parts of the Sierra foothills

    Next: snapdragon, cane, walkway, breeze, toad, manor

    English Tableau

    A rusty old man leaning on a cane,
    appears upon that walkway
    lined with red snapdragons,
    leading away from the old manor house.
    He seems to enjoys a soft autumn breeze
    that lends movement to the whole picture,
    as does the big toad sitting on the lawn
    near the pond.

    Next: earthquake, flashes,emergency, people, paper,agitation.

    Next: simpleton, king, skeleton, tower, crow, forbidden



    Once there was a king
    who lived in a tower
    in the sole company of a crow.
    People thought he was a simpleton
    because he had given up everything:
    power, riches, friends and family
    Every night there came a skeleton
    out of the cupboard and
    performed a forbidden dance.
    Every time the dance was performed
    the king fainted and remained in this state
    until the morning. Only the crow
    watched over his sleep.

    I donīt know what to do
    with this king to make him wake up.
    So, as I have already used up all words
    Iīll let him sleep for hundred years.
    Then, if the planet still exists
    and itīs climatic conditions
    and it bellicose tensions allow,
    maybe a traveling Cinderella
    who chances to visit the tower
    will kiss the sleeping king.
    Letīs hope for the best.

    Next: oven, heat, sunflower, fount, lawn, exhilaration.

    The fussy mechanism of botheration
    scatters
    Pigeons skillfully drawn in carbon?

    This came to mind from a facebook meme... https://www.google.com/search?newwin...MQtKgLegQIDxAB

    on being

    I wonder, let my mind roam avoiding the limelight that burns
    Wandering with the resignation to act and not be acted upon
    An avatar of peace and learning and love - ecstatic with being

    Next: lantern, foxglove, crescent moon, badger, pathway, willow(salgueiro)
    https://www.britannica.com/plant/foxglove
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Badger

    Under the crescent moon
    Under the crescent moon
    My lantern scans the night.
    I wander down the narrow pathway
    Lined by weeping willows.

    The rays of my lantern
    meet the sleepy foxgloves
    cuddled at the feet of the willows.

    Suddenly
    the mighty shadow of a badger
    crosses the path
    and is gone.
    A cloud covers the crescent moon.
    Silence ensures.

    Next:silence, earth, restless,domain ,awareness, dove
