    Challenge: thunder, utmost, briefly, space monster, adventure, Thanksgiving

    with all the fixins

    'twas the night before Thanksgiving
    and all through the...
    "This is an emergency alert -
    all residents are advised to shelter in place",
    (thunder rolled), - "This is not a test -
    all residents are advised to shelter in place -
    It has been reported by NORAD that a space
    monster is in your vicinity -
    This is not a test"
    I thought briefly of taking the alert to heart
    but to my uttermost astoniment decided to depart
    peradventure to ascertain for myself
    whether solid, or some fashion of gelatinity,
    winged, or whatever - I took my blunderbuss
    off the mantelshelf
    and slipped off into the night nonplussed
    the rain came down in sheets
    as I entered my rustbucket and hit the streets
    heading north by northwest
    and there it was...
    next to a flying saucer all abuzz
    three meters tall - the space monster gazing
    at an electronic contrivance
    pointed at a pasture with three cows grazing
    and gave it a second glance
    and poof!
    'twas lightning came down heaven sent
    which startled the cows, no longer content
    I bundled up the dead space monster
    into the bed of my rustbucket as proof -
    durn'd if it didn't look like a tardigrade
    as it were,
    and since it smelt like chicken right off the spit
    I knew I had my Thanksgiving dinner
    figgered out... just needed a marinade -
    lickety split

    Now, that's what I call the lolhorror Sci-Fi genre! My sympathy is all with the cows. But I hope your Thanksgiving turkey will be all rised on earth. Else one doesn´t know what poems may come next.

    Thanx I recycled Monet's cows from post #580 and the multitudinous tardigrade poems elsewhere, then channeled MystryMystry's deft style. This holiday poem goes nicely with my poem A Fishy Christmas post #62 from last year

    In anticipation of your wonderful offering...

    Next: cane, dormouse, piano, settee, bric-a-brac, twilight

    A Poem as Quiet as a Doormouse

    Fancy a serene landscape
    steeped in twilight,
    a bird's sleepy twitter and
    the nostalgic notes of a piano
    produced by the hands
    of a neat old lady
    beside her a cane
    seated in a room
    with a soft carpet, a settee
    and lots of bric a brac,
    all trophies of distant travels.
    Under the settee,
    at a safe distance
    a door mouse watches
    the players fingers glide
    over the keys of the piano.

    Next: village, road, racing, turmoil, listen, turnstile.

    The Mysterious Bubble
    Now, if you just listen to me
    I'll tell you the story
    of the mysterious bubble.

    It appeared one day in the harbor
    just like this.
    Curious people came to visit it
    and, of couse, to take a selfie
    In front of it.
    The press wrote daily about it.
    Politicians debated about its future
    Famous scientists examined it
    one of them pierced it with a needle.
    The bubble didn't react.

    But when it was pierced repeatedly
    it began to shiver and to shrink.
    The flood took it.
    Soon the people standing in groups
    at the shore ,couldn't distinguish it
    anymore in the distance.

    Next: ring, tetotaler, enigmatic, entrance, wilderness, subtleties.

    subtleties

    teetotalers, too, visit
    renowned enigmatic paradises -
    those wilderness wonderlands
    that abound and entrance
    the senses; bringing
    subtleties of spirit to blossom

    Enjoyed this exclusive teetotalers poem!

    Challenge accepted!


    Next: icon, blue jeans, subtle, falls, illume, chorus

    Without subtleties

    Blue Jean's was an
    icon during my childhood
    It was worn in fall
    and all other seasons,
    By men,women and children,
    the universal wear
    of worker and loafer.
    Blue Jeans brought
    a certain dress equality.
    Choruses of iluminatrd mode bosses
    proclaimed its excellence.
    I myself used the magical
    trousers, often with genuine holes
    at the knees from genuine falls,
    more than any other kind of clothes.

    Next : stream, ice cream, violin, adhere, wind, drawback

    Spring Song

    streaming the light wind outdoors
    chimes play in the warm Spring sun

    drawing upon nostalgic counterpoint
    an ice cream truck arrives adhering

    to a route children know by heart
    playing the cuckoo waltz for violin

    Sorry,tailor, some accident with the sixth word. The sixth word was "drawback"

    Enjoyed the charming spring song. Just at present spring is rather wintry and rainy, but I'm enjoying it after the big heatwave.

    Can an avant-garde musical
    in full bloom
    express iridian barriers?
