B&P’s Shadorma & Beyond – April 10, 2016


I’m so terribly sorry but I completely forgot to write a poetry prompt this week!

What was I doing that kept me so busy that I became distracted? Community work – so it seems fitting that the prompt for this week should be about:

Spring Activities


I was completely absorbed in our bi-annual “ri-uso”,  an Italian neologism created for the collection and free distribution of clothing and objects that have accumulated which one usually pitches during spring cleaning or at the end of summer when we get ready for winter.  Italians don’t have garage sales and there are very few thrift shops.  Sometimes the stuff is given to charity organizations – but more often than not, until the cities in Italy began to organize these “re-usage” days everything was just pitched.  And believe me as an eco-volunteer when I say, the stuff that gets brought in is usually in excellent condition, sometimes still in its original packaging!

So what do you do in spring … tell me about it either in a List Poem which is just what it says, a poem created from a list! And here’s my short example and personal interpretation of a list poem to show you how it’s done:

Spring Activities
(List Poem)

Clean the windows
Wash the car
Buy new plants
and Pull out some vases
Put up window screens
(To keep out the bugs)
And pull out swimsuits,
Shorts and cool clothes
These are just a few of the things
That I will do …
Preparing for summer
In Spring.

Have a great week!  Bastet

About Georgia

I love to read...I like to write...I've travelled the world and seen the sites. I'm past my prime and feel so young, especially when near the young. I'm writing this blog, to remember, to think and to share...with the hopes that someone else will make a comment that will stimulate new thoughts and pathways. Actually, I'm a gabber, so the logical extension of gabbing is blogging! ;-)

    Love this challenge, Bastet — I’m so glad you’re wrapped up in the ri-uso 🙂

      Well it was a two day affair, then on Sunday we had a city walk for charity … and yes, it’s better for me when I’m active. Hugs.
