Now Playing


         Where will it take you?

That is my first response to the wonderful picture with the movie prompt at the IGRT posted by Ella.  Just imagine - a ticket to admit one.  If you could use it to go anywhere...anywhen...where, when and to what will you choose to go?  
Then, after thinking about it, I came up with a much more depressing response:

I only
go to tear-jerkers
so after
credits roll
and house lights come on
my obvious weeping is
unremarkable

This is a Shadorma + a poetry form which contains the following number of syllable per line: 3/5/3/3/7/5 (standard) + and extra 3 syllable line, just ...because :o)

  4. Sometimes it's easier to cry over other people's drama than one's own.
    You have hit in a truth in this piece.

  8. Oh, I know what you mean, except that I don't go knowingly to tear-jerkers (animal movies, especially). Nice, simple format. So well said. I'll have to try this shadorma.

  9. Thanks Mary Ann - Glad you stopped by. Since you said you want to try a Shadorma, I'll mention the true Shadorma is the standard 3/5/3/3/7/5 I just added the extra line because I'm a bit lysdexic, and once I realized my mistake that last line (word) was too important to the piece to just omit, lol.

  11. I love this poem. I am such a weeper, even when movies aren't tear-jerkers. I weep at diaper commercials. So I can really relate, even if it's just a poem and you don't exactly mean it.

  13. I hate it when the lights come on. Couldn't they just let us exit in the dark? I love poetry in form. Good job. No, beautiful job!
