(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

today’s adventure

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

(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.

Saturday Repertoire
(Shadorma, pi ku, Septolet, haiku)

A ‘rattler’
No snake in the grass
Or under
The bonnet
More like a loose screw, gone – car
Parts need replacing
~
a bracket
new
for the muffler
~
Tires up
On the ramps
Before a
Trip to
The dealer

He fixes
My car
~
domestic chores split;
we work together doing
what each one does best

Play Right
(Shadorma, Septolet, pi ku)

Son of Son
Found some of Dad’s toy
Building bricks
Interlock –
Making boats, planes and other
Things he imagines
~
A short break
To refuel

And to
Color some
Pages
And a
Postal card
~
first autumn
day –
free from schedules

The Write Words
(Shadorma, pi ku, Cherita)

Little Miss
Has a Grama day –
Jam packed full;
Walk, play, lunch,
Snacks, making booklets, games, and
Filling the feeder

a little
nap
gives Gram a rest

Some days teachers need off too

To recharge and rewrite lessons
For those in their care –

Different schools have different days
So, while Little Miss was here today –
Son of Son’s turn is on Friday

Toast Points
(pi ku, tau ku, Collom Lune, Shadorma, Cherita, haiku)

step challenge;
puff –
elliptical

One pound weight in each hand
On a
*Simply Fit Board, far from boring

Found at a
Local store – paid tax but
But not postage

twist to a
TV Jazz station
long playing
songs without
commercial interruption
adds to my tally

Taking a break to start dinner

Smashed potatoes of
Several different hues

Sauted green beans with walnuts
And garlic to go along with salmon –
With peaches cut up in the salad

to our health we’ll toast
to those past and future years;
cooking for ourselves
