Colleen has set the following challenge this week:
“You can choose the Ekphrastic #PhotoPrompt provided by Trent McDonald, or you can choose the #SynonymsOnly challenge using the words “MOVE & MAKE” provided by David Ellis. OR… You can do both! It’s up to you.”
I have chosen to go with a haiku based on the photo, and I have used gliding for move, and build for make.
Colleen’s syllabic challenge this week is to write a poem which uses synonyms for circled and squared. I went with the cinquain form and the idea of circling around an issue (circled) when what is needed is coming to see things eye-to-eye (squared).
Around the bush
Won’t get us anywhere
Resolution needs to be found
The nonet poetic form is simple. It’s a 9-line poem that has 9 syllables in the first line, 8 syllables in the second line, 7 syllables in the third line, and continues to count down to one syllable in the final (ninth) line.
* I initially titled this – “The Bully,” but it seems to be more than that. Bully automatically has negative connotations, where “Wild One” is more nuanced. There are those that admire the recklessness, and self-absorption of some of these. They may even admire or aspire to such themselves. The bullying may well be there, but hidden in the “sheen” of the “Fonzy” image, without Arthur’s redeeming heart. Or they seldom reflect on the harm done by the “one night stand,” mentality, or casual disregard for other’s feelings.
