QUEST #5 IS NOW CLOSED

Image

Quest #6

Write a poem about your day! I will accept anything from a sonnet to a haiku, but I do have a particular soft spot for a well-crafted limerick. Can be completed any day this week, but don't let that give you cause to procrastinate!

Quest starts at 10 AM Pacific Time on Monday, Feb 16, 2015, and ends at 9:59 AM Pacific Time on Monday, Feb 23, 2015.

Good Luck!

I realise this may not be the best Limerick ever...also, I may gotten the pronunciation of Fayili completely wrong, if I have, I apologise.


There was once a girl called Fayili,
Who decided to have fun at a Cèilidh*
But when she realised,
It was just all guys,
She sat back and just drank Baileys.


*A [Cèilidh], is basically a Scottish dance gathering.

I've done quite a bit of Ceili at a pub back in the Bay Area. :D

HOWEVER I said the poem should be about your day. Reading comprehension, guys!

I thought I was done with the quest,
But realised the poem was all messed,
Because I'm a fool,
For not reading the rule,
But I think this one will pass the test.


Although if you want something about my day, here's a Haiku:

Today I worked hard,
But I do not feel fulfilled,
I am not a cog!




Is that better now? : P

A mug of strong coffee that's bottomless,
After dreaming I was a hippopotamus,
Now I'm sat here at work,
A cognizant murk,
Um... shit, nothing else rhymes...

I'll try again later.

That is fantastic.

I also realised I must have a really weird pronunciation of beer, as I had to look up if it had one or two syllables. : /

I start, I rest,
I wonder, I text.
A idle request,
And truth drops like a stone
The responding behest
Says to leave well alone

Question, command
Admission, remand,
I wanted to help
So I dived in headfirst
Pulled out without answers,
Just questions that hurt

These are the people who I care for most
Idiots, heroes and liars verbose.
All think they know best
All think they are right
So I ready myself
For fallout from the fight

For these, the bonds once so to their hearts
Seem the ones at most risk from tearing apart
So I wait and I hope and I wallow in misery
Hoping I'm not made just that bit more lonely

~~~~

Yeah, today was kinda a shitty day. Also, I'm kind of an awful poet
"Let us think the unthinkable, let us do the undoable, let us prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not Image it after all."

[You need to imagine a beat here, or it just looks like terrible poetry. Which in fairness-]

Sat up in bed, got some time to delay,
Settled back down but then 'This is a new day!',
Cleaned up and dressed, all in record time,
Took control of my morning before half past nine.

A quick game of CoD to pass the last minutes,
Weather's not great but I'm used to walking in it,
A breakfast bar keeps my spirits high on the trip,
It's not warm so I'm moving along at a fair clip.

Arrive to work on time, get on with the day's jobs,
It's a small company so everyone's a big cog,
Coffee break where I drink some chocolate milk,
Caffeine would be better; I'm drooping like my chair's silk.

Lunch passes, work ends, it's time to head home,
Get some fast food when I feel my stomach groan,
More CoD, talk to friends, the day's winding up,
Read the quest, post a rap, and I'll say 'Lads! G'luck.'

(Not bad for five minutes' work, I think. Iamnotarapper.)
Often outnumbered, never outpunned.

Note: in Ireland 'ye' is used as the plural of 'you'. It rather neatly avoids confusion online.

There once was a lad who washed dishes
For a wage more or less fictitious.
He woke in the morning
To find snow without warning
And cold that's downright malicious.
It's all over but the crying. And the taxes.

Restless tossing
Sleep late with bad dreams
Attempt self-esteem booster, failed
Grocery and pizza, but damn its cold
No snow, so schools on the morrow
Tests prepared for the week
Cold feet, empty bed
Repeat

The day started off healthily, but we had a "Season Finale" at our DND game in the afternoon. So....I mean we had to have pizza and beer.

Oh, Fay... Your challenge this week hits upon a a weakness of mine. I am a sucker for writing freeverse. I'm not sure this fits the intent of where you wanted it to go... but it is cathartic none-the-less.

This evening's outpouring:


Set on a quest for a document
Searching for family
History in an email
Instead, fall into a rabbit hole
Flooded by memories of one who could have been
On that still missing chart
The one who stomped my feelings to dirt
In the name of research

He's married now, ya know
To that same chick... yeah, that one.
The one he needed advice about?
I guess my advice was sound
It worked for him.

Just not for me.
Never for me.
Never will.
Tears.

A pain in my ass, SAP2000, (sap two thousand)
As analysis runs, tumblr 'm browsin',
And oh look it would seem
I have fucked up a beam
Under all of this work I'm drowning

(I wanted to end it with:
And so I'll MURDER YOU IN THE FACE
but it didn't rhyme.)

Thank you all for your poems so far. I am equally moved by the funnies and the more somber ones.

Here are my tidying pics. I did take them on Sunday, but had some problems uploading.

Image

There's a bit of clutter toward the back, but that's in-progress craft stuff, and will probably always be there.

Image

I scrubbed all the counters. And the stove. It might just be the cleanest it's been since we moved in a year and a half ago.

Image

The left half is mine, the right my roommate's (although my clock drifted over to her side).

There once was a wall in my mind
To wear it down is a slow grind
Day out and in
To fix what has been
So that I can leave it behind


Not sure if that's specific enough to what I've done today, but it's something I do everyday.

I awake to the sun's sweet embrace,
A bliss fills up all my heart's space,
But my feeling of Zen,
Becomes spurious when,
I find humour in "MURDER YOU IN THE FACE".

An old 'spare time' game, a comfortable little hobby like a modest backyard garden,
Shared with friends, it blossoms and grows and brings joy and beauty,
But creators changed it while no one watched, making it unplayable,
The earth has been salted, the plants wither and die,
Nothing will grow here now; the garden is dead.

A long trip filled with anticipation.
Bus hours: four
Car, train: more
And at last I've reached my destination.

Throughout the week I thought about this quest,
But every day I ended up a blank,
I was scared I wouldn't give my best,
And that my verse would ultimately tank.
But finally I put fingers to keys,
And started now to write about my day.
My friend is working with me now and she's
Settling in quite well, I'm glad to say.
Her fourth day employed now and it goes quite well,
She's picking up the skills and confidence,
While work for me was never quite a Hell,
With her around the workday feels less dense.
So while the working week is at an end,
I look forward to Monday and my friend.
