A last #frapalymo poetry prompt for 2016

Standard

It is the last day of #frapalymo in November 2016 and I can’t wait to find out what changes @FrauPaulchen has planned. Change is in the air. I can smell it ;-).

But for today we’ll follow a tradition 🙂 ~ here is @FrauPaulchen’s prompt:

traraa! here it is: the last prompt for the last poem for this compact poetry month in November twentysixteen. tomorrow a retrospect and how it can, is allowed to and will go on. 

that is probably a good bridge for the last prompt for you. the #frapalymo prompt no 30 is: nämlich: „we aren’t tomorrow what we are today ~ change” if this statement is true or not, how today impacts on tomorrow or when change is not allowed sometimes … you decide how you want to use the prompt. 

…and the small print: please let me know via email or twitter if you take part. then I can post the link to your blog/poem on Twitter. or post the link in the comments under the daily prompt post on my blog. the hashtag for Twitter is #frapalymo, and I am @FrauPaulchen.”

Of course, my fellow English speaking poets and poetesses rather let me @Morgaine620 know or post the link here in the comments.

#frapalymo poetry prompt ~ 29nov16

Standard

Without much ado: here is the prompt:

you can’t ignore the fact anymore: mrs paulchen’s poetry month is nearing the end. some will say “at last” (yea, heike?! :-)(this is a link to a rather ironic German poem about the end of #frapalymo) others will be sad. it often is both like with many double prompts. today is the last but one prompt , then the last prompt and then a short recapture and an announcement of change. yes, a little curiosity can be… until the first of december you have to wait and see, like children for the first door of the advent calendar. 

but now the prompt for tomorrow (@FrauPaulchen wrote this post yesterday) it is about something we sometimes interpret as negative which is in fact rather beautiful. it is, like always, a question of perspective, a question of images of inspiration for your texts and the choices for the rest of the day…. the #frapalymo prompt no 29 is: “shadow/shadows” 

…and the small print: please let me know via email or twitter if you take part. then I can post the link to your blog/poem on Twitter. or post the link in the comments under the daily prompt post on my blog. the hashtag for Twitter is #frapalymo, and I am @FrauPaulchen.”

Double #frapalymo poetry prompt ~ 27/28nov16

Standard

Sorry my dear fellow #frapalymoists, that I have not posted a prompt for two days. We had a family emergency and I needed to be there for them so there was no time for posting. Only my scheduled posts were published. All is well now so no need for worrying and I am back to translating the last few prompts for #frapalymo in November 2016. There might not be a poem from today. But I’ll be back with new poetry from tomorrow on.

I might translate the missed prompts from the beginning of the month and the one from Saturday at the beginning of December but I do not know yet if I can manage that. Let yourself be surprised :-).

But now to the prompts from yesterday and today. @FrauPaulchen chose one of her famous double prompts and that is why I translate both in one go.

#frapalymo prompt 27nov16

wow ~ a great prompt with the street noises, which evoked  fine poems.

at the end of the poetry month, there is another double prompt for you which again allows you all freedoms. and who knows, maybe one or the other haiku, elevenie, pantoum, automatic poem appears again….?  

so the #frapalymo prompt no 27 is: “endlessly” and not surprisingly the prompt for the second part for November 28th is “ending”. i wish you endless writing joy

#frapalymo prompt 28nov16

in short part 2 of the double prompt after the endlessness… what ending texts might the endlessness provide us with?  

#frapalymo prompt no 28 is: “ending” 

…and the small print: please let me know via email or twitter if you take part. then I can post the link to your blog/poem on Twitter. or post the link in the comments under the daily prompt post on my blog. the hashtag for Twitter is #frapalymo, and I am @FrauPaulchen.”

#frapalymo poetry prompt ~25nov16

Standard

Even though I thought last night I couldn’t create anything of worth, obviously I made something someone liked :-).

Thanks @FrauPaulchen for your compliment and this wonderful poetry project.It always makes me happy :-)!

And now with no further ado into today’s prompt:

sometimes you discover the charm of repetition, don’t you? over the top or in moderation, a real win win! 

sometimes you also discover a prompt ad hoc. it is laid in front of your soul’s eyes so to speak. a smile. the prompt for tomorrow (@FrauPaulchen wrote this prompt yesterday) is such a prompt. 

so the prompt for #frapalymo no 25 is: “afternoon dream: re-education to be a deep sea creature.”* ~ after a tweet by  klaus aka @reticulum. such a beautiful tweet recently, dear klaus ~ i just had to use it as a prompt. thank you! 

*please bear in mind that you do not need to use the exact words of the prompt for your poems. the prompt is supposed to make you think and verse. if you use the exact words please make sure you give credit to the author. thank you very much. 

…and the small print: please let me know via email or twitter if you take part. then I can post the link to your blog/poem on Twitter. or post the link in the comments under the daily prompt post on my blog. the hashtag for Twitter is #frapalymo, and I am @FrauPaulchen.”

#frapalymo poetry prompt ~ 24nov16

Standard

Sorry, for rather being late with the translation of the prompt but I was working a full day today and then the family needed some food. So with no further ado into @FrauPaulchen’s #frapalymo prompt no 24.

thank you for your pantoums! it is one of my most favourite and most surprising poetic form!

repetitions sometimes are a pure magic – no matter if you repeat a verse, a line, words or letters. they lead the view. with the pantoum we had repetitions in a given form. however, let’s pick up repetions again with the new text ~ just more freely. 

so #frapalymo prompt no 24 is: “repetions wanted”. use repetitions consciously in your text, pick up words, letters or again whole lines, show them off with repetitions. i am looking forward to the diversity and the unity. (ha!) 

…and the small print: please let me know via email or twitter if you take part. then I can post the link to your blog/poem on Twitter. or post the link in the comments under the daily prompt post on my blog. the hashtag for Twitter is #frapalymo, and I am @FrauPaulchen.”

A pantoum was new territory for Kiwinana but she explored it anyway. And you can see the gorgeous result here:

#frapalymo poem/Gedicht ~ green/gruen

Standard

Ok, I feel inspired but I am not sure I am up for a pantoum. Never mind. Here we go:

A little lesson in green!

Avocado is oh so green
Asparagus a little less
Mint though grows a little darker
Lime gives hope for parker?

Asparagus a little less
Viridian never heard before
Lime gives hope for parker?
Teal is good for marker?

Viridian never heard before.
Malachite a little more.
Teal is good for marker?
Emerald a sparker?

Malachite a little more.
Lime gives hope for parker?
Emerald a sparker?
Avocado is oh so green.

Ok, ich fuehle mich inspiriert bin mir aber nicht sicher, ob ich mich auf’s Pantun einlassen kann. Egal. Hier kommt es:

Eine Kleine Unterrichtsstunde in Gruen

Avocado ist oh so gruen
Spargel ein bisschen weniger
Minze wird ein bisschen dunkler?
Limone gibt Hoffnung fuer unkler?

Spargel ein bisschen weniger.
Viridian noch nie davon gehoert.
Limone gibt Hoffnung fuer unkler?
Aquamarin ist ein guter marker?

Viridian noch nie davon gehoert.
Malachit ein bisschen mehr.
Aquamarin is ein guter marker?
Emerald ein Verdampfer ?

Malachit ein bisschen mehr.
Limone gibt hoffnung fuer unkler?
Emerald ein Verdampfer?
Avocado ist oh so gruen.

Ich habe dieses Wortspiel zuerst im Englischen geschrieben und die Farben einfach direkt uebersetzt ohne nachzupruefen, ob sie so im Deutschen existieren. Ich experimentiere hier einfach mit Worten 🙂

#frapalymo poetry prompt ~ 23nov16

Standard

I was quite charmed by yesterdays elevenie even though my topic was rather depressing. But never mind. A new day and a new #frapalymo prompt. Here is what @FrauPaulchen has to offer us today:

how manyfold those elevenies were! they definitely underestimated… 

the completion of the little poetic form trilogy is a favourite and here often used as prompt poetic form. i speak of the pantoum. 

the #frapalymo prompt no 23 is: “write a green pantoum” . you have to engage a little with the pantoum. if you do that you’ll get a wonderful aha moment. you can find more about the pantoum and how it works here on wikipedia. i want to add that a pantoum does not need to rhyme but it can be. me as a rhyme unwilling interprete the pantoum without rhymes. but there are rhyme artists amongst us and so i am looking forward to rhymed and unrhymed pantoums. a third and last time there is a colour: green is supposed to inspire you even more. 

…and the small print: please let me know via email or twitter if you take part. then I can post the link to your blog/poem on Twitter. or post the link in the comments under the daily prompt post on my blog. the hashtag for Twitter is #frapalymo, and I am @FrauPaulchen.”

Of course, my fellow English speaking poets and poetesses rather let me @Morgaine620 know or post the link here in the comments.

This time I am happy to find out that Kiwinana is taking part in English #frapalymo. You can find her red elevenie here:
