For NaPoWriMo Day 9 the prompt is:
“Today, I’d like to challenge you to write your own Sei Shonagon-style list of “things.” What things? Well, that’s for you to decide!”
Summer Saturday’s in Churchill square; Taste —
Of Edmonton, loud music resounds.
Jugglers, acrobats, twist too profound,
We watch, coin in their hats never wasted.
Ballerina on swing, pumps legs with haste,
She leaps, stardust into the circus sky;
She’s fearless; he’ll catch her high dive.
Old movies too in September frost play,
Kids nestled in sleeping bags, cocoa —
Shared in red cups, caramel popcorn crunched.
Giggles sound – Mrs Doubt-fire’s drag brings,
Hilarity for all ages; though talent —
Was ruined, darkness dwelled; laughter stays and rings,
Immortality in giggles remains.
