Never Again! A Tiger in the Woods

Interesting photo, with my caption, is loud and clear or a concise 13-word story.

My sad attempt at a limerick:

It is said, never say never;
that is true, however
If you see a tiger glaring
Look again who is really staring
It’s Tiger Woods as ever

A Poem Without thought

Just a little simple poem with no particular form composed quickly while looking at the photo challenge below. A Free Versed Poem.

All alone, it may seem
Yet, like living, things may be seen
Lonely, we forget that heavenly stream
All alone, it may seem

Decisions!

Our words this week are:

– black and white

– unusual and common

Help my hair is turning gray, I suppose that means I have had many, too many birthdays. The question now is should I go black or white?

Honestly, both have their advantages, unusual as they might be, yet as common as staying gray. Gray or grey, whatever!

The World Today in HOMOPHONES

The ‘Double Take’ challenge TODAY focuses on the use of homophones. You have two sets of homophones and you are challenged to use all of them in your response – which can be poetry or prose.

Our homophone sets this week are:

nays – votes against
neighs – a horse vocalize

pain – hurts
pane – a single pane glass

My participation is below:

Life today! Don't get too close.
Look through a window instead.
But then the pane of glass; it shatters;
Oh, the pain of hearing!  Hearing
Yeas, over the nays!  Bad over good!
Accepted, even wild horses wail their neighs! 
Society!  What happened?
Nature in conflict while
Disharmony thickens!

Sorry if I OFFENDED anyone

mindlovemiserysmenagerie Reminds us It is First Line Friday! Welcome and let’s get writing.

You have a week to write it, enjoy! Include the first line of course! Tag it Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie, First Line Fridays, and short fiction.

Mirror, mirror on the wall, I hope it’s not YOU! I SEE!

Ta Da! ♫ Your first line is **People see what makes sense to them, reality notwithstanding.**

Below see my attempt at offending someone!

**People see what makes sense to them, reality notwithstanding.**
It all boils down to lifestyle and Pride.
Today especially, with the new normal that is plugged. 
The "New Normal" defined as:

I’m offended!
You’re a racist!
Boy or Girl or to be determined!
Cops are bad; crooks are good!
Riots/looters are peaceful!
Processions/A March are terror!
Conservative silenced
Liberal voice loud

Any other New Normals to report — leave in the comments.
My challenge to you!

Sometimes One just has to be SILLY

Can’t find my thinking cap! Don’t say it, I know what you’re thinking!

Tale Weaver – #299 – Over The Top – October 29th I took the challenge anyway!

OVER THE TOP

Looking way Over the top
Stooping under the bottom
Licking a sweet lollipop
Enjoying the cool Autumn

Having indeed a great day
After sleeping sound all night
Cut last blooms for a bouquet
Thinking of what now to write

Now reaching for my laptop
Designing away something —
Anything … Over the top

Poem Mix with Politics

Over on my sidebar there is a quote that inspired me today. Together with a prompt word SWITCH not to mention Mindlovemiserysmenagerie below.

“Right is right even if no one is doing it; wrong is wrong even if everyone is doing it.”

Saint Augustine

First time for me with the explanation below through the inspiration of Mindlovemiserysmenagerie Poetry known as Vers Beacoup.

The Vers Beaucoup, a poem created by Curt Mongold, is French for “many rhymes.” Each stanza consists of four lines with a rhyming word scheme of:
a-a-a-
a-b-b-
b-c-c-
c-d-d

My creative verse below rhyming scheme as above with three stanza of three groups

If you get the ITCH to SWITCH, that’s RICH
Don’t DITCH! WOW, do it NOW by golly
Take that VOW! Plan AHEAD, use your HEAD
Before your DEAD! WRITE what’s RIGHT!

Don’t FRIGHT; we UNITE for the FIGHT
Be a KNIGHT! READ now let’s LEAD —
WEED out evil! Pull the PLUG rid that THUG
So very SMUG! GAIN hope to DRAIN!

It’s DEEP don’t fall ASLEEP, WEEP for
The SHEEP! An ARRAY of truth we PRAY
TODAY. To set us FREE we can all AGREE
With GLEE! Soon to sing the LATE Deep STATE!

Opposites do Attract

OPPOSITES ATTRACT This challenge is all about “opposing forces” and the use of antithesis in our writing. Our words this week are:

– ascend and descend

– hope and despair

My post in the form of a Haibun with Haiku

God indeed works in mysterious ways. Take life as an example. There are those people who are their best when they are at their lowest; in other words, they seem to sink or descend to the lowest point before rising to ascend to great heights. That is the way of life, and even God Himself fell three times when He carried His Cross before He rose. He never despaired, but hoped for our salvation.  

All called to follow

Up down, to and fro we go

Heaven is our goal
