    Challenge: emerge, luck, vagrant, hoard, castle, invisible

    an emergent gloom

    an emergent gloom
    reverberated as

    one, a vagrant lad,
    beheld his luck -
    a dragon's hoard

    in a decrepit castle
    beckoned brightly
    as legend lore went

    his luck was bad -
    the dragon invisible

    Next: silence, knock, silken, glow, thrush, manzanita

    The secret garden

    A silent knock
    with a silken glove
    on a hidden door.
    An odor of manzanitas
    Light winged thrushes
    fluttering
    in the evening glow
    of a parting sun.

    Next challenge:
    laundry, monsters, forest, undertaking, handsome, gathering.

    So "da goat ' is s food truck! Enjoyed!

    The next chapter
    This is about a parrot,
    a special parrot.
    His feathers glittered
    in the sun
    and he spoke words
    of wisdom
    he himself didn't understand.
    He loved imitating a siren of alarm,
    causing a commotion.
    People run desperately to the window .
    But no, it was only the rain
    falling softly on the pavement
    of the avenue.

    Next challenge: biscuit,linger, worldwide, crater, endemic, naturally

    exposÚ

    desecraters of lives - those
    sons of biscuit eaters tarnish
    reputations; flaying in public
    first endemically then worldwide
    - a lingering conundrum perhaps,
    alas, preternaturally driven

    Inpermanence

    A very vocal pitcher
    became exhilarated
    over the delicate design
    of a vacuum cleaner.
    Resting on the same table
    lay a small perfumed envelope.
    Gracefully it sailed to the ground
    and was seen no more.

    Next challenge: tower, bard, allusion, vineyard, albatross, up,

    Hmmm.... a bit too much mystery to the envelope... Enjoyed !

    Challenge: tower, bard, allusion, vineyard, albatross, up

    an old sycophant bard of grand allusion

    an old sycophant bard of grand allusion wore
    his illusory tropes on a long gusseted sleeve

    was partial to the vineyard's wine wherefore
    while partaking an albatross he did perceive

    who sang him sea shanties up in his tower
    the most intricate tales for the bard to weave

    inscribed on costly parchment hour by hour
    expounding to people most ignoble and na´ve

    this raucous audience with fresh veg did shower
    him - thus his daily vegan repast did he receive

    Curious character!

    Challenge accepted!

    Next: teardrop, waterfall, koi carp, cat, mystical, urn

    Ornamental
    A dusky room
    Koi carps moving
    in the aquarium.
    A teardrop gliding
    on the
    urn like
    a mystical
    waterfall.
    in the bottom
    the two yellow eyes of a cat
    shimmer in the dark.

    Next challenge: roots, basket, allowance, midday, engaging, lentils.

    Challenge: roots, basket, allowance, midday, engaging, lentils

    An homage to Cat Pictures Please by Naomi Kritzer

    Cat Poetry

    In a woven basket my calico cat
    dreams of engaging big game -
    making no allowance whatsoever
    for speed nor strength as I prepped
    a modest midday meal of lentils
    and beetroots in a simmering broth

    Poetry is on the agenda today after
    the news and a perusal of social
    media while "Ziggy" plays the Airplane
    on my smart speakers; "Ziggy" was
    named "Computer" before it executed
    a random command from the telly

    In response to "Computer"'s faux pas
    I had had to address our new overlords'
    complaint of the destruction of half
    of their fleet in orbit around Ganymede,
    or somewhere - it wasn't my fault that
    humanity's AI had a sense of humor

    she will protect me -
    guide me; inspires me to
    post cat poetry
