Suddendeath poetry Challenge: Foggy Moon!
May 21, 2016 5:54am CST
Welcome to this weekend’s Suddendeath poetry challenge, Foggy Moon! Anyways, rules are as follows, write a poem in any style using the five words that I give you. Write it in one sitting or in under an hour (only to quash your inner editor, rules are loose there). Add it here, OR link in a comment so we can enjoy each other’s poems. The words can be in any plurality or tense. Today’s words are moon, fog, quiet, glow, night. My entry is below: ------------------------------------------------------- When I drive to work it’s in the dark, a world normally lit by headlights stark. But this morning the moon met me there, And lit up the night world most beautifully fair. Yet far my eyes could not see around, For thick quiet fog covered most of the ground. Moon glow on fog is a wonderful sight, Even if driving in it gave me the most chilling of frights.

You changed the words. It wasn't foggy moon before. Once in a blue moon He will appear soon Quiet in the foggy night Fill her with great delight Warm glow surrounds her heart Did she just hear him fart? Out went the romance far Poor girl was forever scarred Guy got kicked in the shin Yelled the girl. "You belong in a loony bin"

In a QUIET night of full MOON It is possible to hear the wolves howl This, if we live in the countryside! The FOG, creates a breathtaking atmosphere Suddenly, a GLOW, in the NIGHT It can come from anywhere! Comment: I did not want certainly create a scene from "horror movie"!

HoHoHo! the strange one That was summer warm night And the Moon was so bright! Glowing fireflies dots Made me think of gin shots. My slow breathing was quiet. I observed color riot. I came home in the morning, When my wife gave me warning. Sunrise greeted me gently, I was looking intently At that big foggy cloud. Police siren wailed loud...
