Pic and a Word #312: Disorder

Today an erasure poem about the state of the world. If I hear disorder, there can be only one: the song from the Judgment Night soundtrack, the five minutes from which I used to get my power and explain to everybody about its three accelerating speeds. Only much later I learned that Ice-T and SlayerContinue reading “Pic and a Word #312: Disorder”

Day 30: Magic cento

Today is the day to finish things and maybe start new ones. We had another amazing April, my fifth, in the company of Maureen’s prompts and all the poets and their poems. My last poem is for you all. Prompt 30: “Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a cento. This is a poemContinue reading “Day 30: Magic cento”

Day 25 & Pic and a Word #310: Petal

Today is the Liberation Day in Italy, and in my poem two ladies of the marshes are fighting for my body and soul. I have a nice memory from last year’s Liberation Day. We drove to the lagoon again after being locked into our municipality for ages, but the supermarket was closed and we wentContinue reading “Day 25 & Pic and a Word #310: Petal”

Day 17 & Pic and a Word #309: Dogs

I could write a poem with a line for every dog I’ve ever met… Prompt 17: “This is a fun one – it’s a prompt developed by the comic artist Lynda Barry, and it asks you to think about dogs you have known, seen, or heard about, and then use them as a springboard into whereverContinue reading “Day 17 & Pic and a Word #309: Dogs”

Day Ten: I Love Luka & Pic and a Word #308: Construction

I knew this day would come: Today I just must post the poem which I wrote on Thursday, because my love for Luka is stronger than any rules. This post will be interesting to you if you love basketball at least a little. If not, you will learn something about me: I’m a fan. LoveContinue reading “Day Ten: I Love Luka & Pic and a Word #308: Construction”

Day Three & Pic and a Word #307

Today we were to react to a 4-line stanza by another poet – and look, Patrick has a poem of exactly four lines in his Pic and a Word challenge this week. Prompt 3: “It’s a Spanish form called a ‘glosa’ – literally a poem that glosses, or explains, or in some way responds toContinue reading “Day Three & Pic and a Word #307”

Pic and a Word #306: Garden?

A garden poem I’ve just had a garden post but gardens are always nice, say I when I see Patrick’s new theme. Let’s see. So many gardens that I miss! It’s always wonderful to come back to the garden. I know! I’ll search for various song lyrics that mention a garden, such as, you know,Continue reading “Pic and a Word #306: Garden?”

Pic and a Word #305: The sea

My today’s poem is channelled by the Oracle, as K. calls magnetic poetry, and comes with an old sunset. I haven’t seen anything like this in a while. But first – happy first day of spring! I didn’t know it’s today when I went on my first walk without my winter coat this morning, butContinue reading “Pic and a Word #305: The sea”

Pic and a Word #304: Transition

I’m happy to bring you fresh spring images from yesterday. It’s colder than it looks though. Waiting for warm peace (expression by Slavoj Žižek). Transition From will to do from has to been from fire to flood from calm to storm from winter to spring from defeat to victory from pandemic to war from coldContinue reading “Pic and a Word #304: Transition”

Pic and a Word #303: Becalmed

Today is the day of the equation (Ni+Lu)ka, since both my earliest friend Nika and Luka Dončić celebrate their birthdays. This happened last night. If you watched because I keep going on about Luka, I hope you watched till the end. Be calm Even if they are 21 points down in the third quarter, evenContinue reading “Pic and a Word #303: Becalmed”
