TRIOLET

Hi Jan - my attempt: Nature's Callousness A frog's life, gone, and no one cared, The pond was now still and lone, Just tiny creatures who had shared, A frog's life, gone, and no one cared. The mate whose life the male had paired, To new urges now was prone, A frog's life, gone, and no one cared, The...

Hi Jan - I'm in early this week - and rushed a little as I'm going on holiday tomorrow. Hope it's ok. The meter is 7,7,7,7,8,8,8and 8 (I think) hope that sort of meter is permissible. Dressed in raggy winter togs; Useless fire with no logs; Needful searching for a warm; Got past caring of the harm. ...

Oh dear Jan - have I made my wee limerick, a wee crude, and a wee too much of a stinker to go near?

It's only about a wee wee after all.

I love faithwriters and the human touch about it. I hope it never loses that feel - the feel of the Christian family - concerned when one of the leaders is down.

Deb, hope you get better soon and that head clears up.

Hi Jan - bit late here, hey?

There once was a man from Dundee
Who saved a pint of his wee.
His intentions were good
To wee-ter his spuds,
But they died of a stinking disease.

Another try - I may get it right eventually.

Leaves' arms reach skyward,
Tugging to be free from earth,
Yet anchored by strength.

Here goes Jan - my attempted.

Icy chrystals surrender.
Thawed, by natures source of light.
A mutual connection.

Glad you are back with your class.(This is not part of the un-rhymed poem).

Surprise

Hi Jan

I used this challenge story of birds to depict human behaviour. Being a bird lover I see similarities quite a lot. And Jesus said, "Consider the birds.." Because he knew we had things we could learn from their example.

Symbolism

Hi Jan - just another try. "The Book" was mostly written by people from the the tribe of the "Six Pointed Star". Now it is read by the "Fish" people who follow a "Cross" and honour this "Rose of Sharon". In honouring the "Rose" they drink "Bread and Wine" in remembrance of their "Lamb" who changed i...

Symbolism

Hi Jan, Turning up again like a bad penny! Been struggling with mild writers' block and challenge fatigue plus an excessive amount of holidays booked for this year. Could you use an obscure symbol to get the reader thinking, then through the piece more revealing symbols to make sure the reader has g...

Suspense

Hi Jan I used suspense in one of my pieces to show how a young man, who had stumbled over a personal message from the Bible code, was instructed to set off into the unknown to rescue a fallen damsel - I think it worked. Jan are you sure it maybe a boy or a girl - it could be boys or girls, or, boy a...
