(g) MLMM Sat Mix/ Mix/ Parked (9.30)

Parked
(pi ku, Shadorma, pi ku, Shadorma)

over the
strait
of Rock River

No straight trek
Up that trail along
The mountain
For to see
What was discussed there at the
Information desk

no disgust
found
in natures’ wood

At North Point
The peak of the trail
There up at
Hawk Mountain
Where we spied vultures and a
Single Bald Eagle

MLMM Saturday Mix
The ‘Double Take’ challenge focuses on the use of homophones* to build your writing piece. You have two sets of homophones and you are challenged to use all four words in your response – which can be poetry or prose.
Our first homophone set this week is: straight – not crooked, strait – narrow waterway
Our second set of homophones is: discussed – talked about, disgust – sickening

Playing the Game?
(tau ku, pi ku, Septolet)

course change ahead, rough seas?
maybe?
just some seasonal diversion…
~
tiptoe through
dreams
built through the years
~
Successful thoughts
Lace and strengthen
Intuition …
Positive visualization

Distance and
Time can
Be friends

today’s adventure
(pi ku, Septolet, pi ku, Shadorma, pi ku)

cooler air
walk,
delightful morn
~
Still in shorts
My host
For supper
Enjoys the
Sunshine

I drive
He, cannot
~
trees changing
mums
colorful hues
~
Companions
We dine, he with wine
One fruitful
Glass for health
Always too much food each takes
Home the extra food
~
home while the
sky’s
delightful blue

Rainbows aura
Autumn blends
Coffee and tea

Aroma
Petrichor
Or the Dog Days
Lingering

Staring through the
Picture window; daydreaming in September ~
Summer grips tightly

Shades: More Than Blue
(in three forms)
I
(Septolet)

Sky, sea,
Eggshell
of a Robin

Or a
Newborn’s eyes
That window
of ‘soul’
~

III
(Cherita)

Beyond the dream

Vague and opaque
That vision of success

When she transfers the
Sheets that dried by the sun
Onto the bed in her home

~

(pi-ku)

broken heart
awe
at the repair

(g) Mick’s SFC #2 / InvITation (9.25)

invITation
(pi ku, tau ku, haiku, Septolet, Shadorma)

there, something –
‘it’
lurks in shadow
~
moon casts silver on ‘it’ –
red fox
sniffing the night air for rodents
~
While little kits rest
Vixens from the same skulk hunt
‘It’ is their duty
~
Where has the
Reynard gone?

‘It’ goes to
The village
Becoming a
Familiar spirit
~
Seasonal
Changes envelope
‘It’…the mood
Emotions
Looking and longing for more
Or less of magic…

Mick’s Short Form Challenge #2
“it”

Male foxes are known as dogs, tods or reynards, females as vixens, and young as cubs, pups, or kits. A group of foxes is referred to as a skulk, leash, or earth.

(g) SPF/ Picture This… (9.24)

Picture This…
(pi ku, Elfje, tau ku, Elfje, haiku)

jagged edge
or
smooth, they let go

Leafy
Yellow, amber
Falling down brown
Oak… drying in early
Autumn

skitter scatter like bugs
in wind
catching in shadowed curbs, corners

Crunch
They did
Those leaves underfoot
On a star filled
Evening

less time to rake those
fallen piles as the daylight
lessens this season
