So we’re participating in NaPoWriMo and the optional prompt for Day 11 (yesterday) was as follows:
“Today, rather than being casual, I challenge you to get rather classically formal, and compose a poem in Sapphics.”
Ok having forgotten what a Sapphics poem was we had to turn to Google for guidance. Once we got a quick refresher we were off to write one… and once the realization set in that we were still clueless I took a shot (a very short shot) at it anyway….and here’s what I came up with-
before reading this, keep in mind that laughter is good for the soul and we got a belly full off this feeble attempt at writing~~~
Fast is the man who runs the dash
Slow the person who goes the distance
Go Sir Johnson, Go and be seen and understand
Races aren’t always for runners
Hi, is this an odd name for a blog or what? We'd actually prefer it to be known as a peaceful, magical and mystical spot. It's a spot where you can stop in for a daily dose of love and laughter sprinkled with a bit of chaos, confusion and lunacy. You can get great recipes and cooking tips, as well as drilling and building ideas. Who does that? Who knows their way around the kitchen and around the tool shed?
Well, I guess that's part of what'll make this blog so interesting - that and the brief glimpse you'll get into a very elite and exclusive lifestyle - one that supports a "never a dull moment" and "everything ain't for everybody" attitude.
By the way, remember to keep an open mind (no judging or finger pointing), a watchful eye (be on the lookout for random giveaways), and a positive -pay it forward-attitude (everybody could use an occasional leg up).
Now I know it sounds easy, but don't get it twisted, this "dance ain't for everybody", it's not always a bowl full of cherries, but we make the best of it by drinking a whole lot of lemonade and by praying daily for peace, patience and understanding; after all, we woke up like this!
