    Ropes of Gold Villanelle

    Hi Liz, This is a lovely Villanelle. The limited rhyme didn't give you any trouble, nice use of near rhyme. The image "ropes of gold" is unique and beautiful. Nice way to introduce yourself to the members. ~~Tink

    Ropes of Gold Villanelle

    The sun inclines the waves to glow Across my turquoise ocean view; The sea alive with ropes of gold. The storms of yesterday have flown. The skies take on a brilliant hue. The sun inclines the waves to glow. Now soaring seagulls (circling) go The way they did when life was new; The sea alive with ropes of gold. It was the time when mankind strolled In Eden's lovely habitude. The sun inclines the waves to glow. But Adam's tempted heart grew cold And entertained ingratitude; The sea alive with ropes of gold. As breakers wash the white-sand shore, I share with you my seaside muse: The sun inclines the waves to glow; The sea alive with ropes of gold.

    Sometime after the giant leap

    Marti, The images in the yard, the rusted out old water heater in the yard, the rotting picnic table the chain link fence are so clear. I didn't understand the 1902 and 1964 until now and now everything makes sense. I hear the response of grandfather and grandson in unison. What an awesome memory of your grandfather and I love that you were so in sync with him on this. I like you more every time I read one of your poems. ~~Tink

    I love that, tonyv...and so true! Got to get down and smack the tile floor!

    Smacking the tile floor is more merciful than smacking the downstairs neighbor.

    Ah thank you Liz for commenting on my tanka and welcome once more to PMO. There are a lot of good poems here, this thread is an interactive thread that allows us to build on other's words. The first line of my tanka was written by Gatekeeper. See the haiku above your response, it was also written by Gatekeeper. His last line is "beware the surface", Here is my response to his haiku: 2019 #42 Beware the surface, winter's freeze crystallizes, ice cracks and shatters ~~jvg Join the fun and accept the challenge, use my last line "ice cracks and shatters" to begin your own haiku, post it as a reply and someone else will pick up your last line and run with it. This is the Haiku Train, chugging right along. ~~Tink

    Tink, in looking through some of your poems, this suddenly grabbed me, causing me to have to reply. I personally, love elemental nature greatly! And this poem's idea, with the earth as a present being "opened", breaks through "our" frozen surface too, making us feel more alive and warm.

    Prorogue

    ProrogueEvents of Brexit intrigue, the prorogationof parliament by the queen, found unlawful in court,stalled action and halted talks. Decisions must be madeby the end of October, time ticks on and out. ~~Judi Van GorderNotes: ▼ 4 LInes Verse Form: Imayo Learning new words and trying to understand what is happening across the pond. prorogue - the putting off for a time Apparently, according to the constitution, only the monarch can prorogue parliamentary action. This was challenged in the courts, the UK court said it was lawful, the Scottish court said unlawful, therefore it went to the UK Supreme court and was found unlawful. It seems the UK constitution is being challenged in this Brexit confusion.
