The Saturday Symphony #6

Hi guys, welcome to the 6th edition of The Saturday Symphony.
I’m glad you are all well enough to read this.
May fortune and favour wrap you in its embrace.

Note; Each new edition will now have its own customised cover image as you can see above. (just a little tweak)

First, here’s some poetry for a smile;

Outside life’s challenges
A flamboyant beauty awaits
Step beyond the threshold at your door
Smell the rain as it quenches the earth
See the tulips laughing beneath sunlight
Admire the butterflies sprinkled in bliss
Feel the fine grains of sand in your hand
In a desert, no two are alike

Rejoice when green is what you see
A prescription for the soul

If not by day, then go by night
Enjoy its moonlight kiss
And savour its starlit caress
For no matter how hard this life may seem
Beauty and joy align its every seam

This week’s three featured posts

  1. Let me by Liyona – This is so subtle and beautiful that it stayed with me long after reading it.
  2. I am your universe by Michnavs – This is such a treat I felt like Halloween came early.
  3. Don’t panic, Let go by Anitadawes – Take an adventure in the clouds and glide on Anita’s sumptuous words.

PONDEROUS THOUGHT

WITHHELD LOVE
Many times love is involuntary.

At first glance, at first touch, at first chat. Even at first meal.

Sometimes we feel it so strong. And yet we choose to ignore it.

Write about how this has/may happpen

And why we have/may choose to ignore this feeling of spontaneous love.

Any form of writing, images and art is welcome.

You can share with me in the comments section,
Link back to me in a post that you write,
Or paste the link to your post in the comments section as well.

Ponderous writers from last week’s feature

Thank you all for taking part,
Lots of love.


Don’t forget to use the ponderous thought above,

Write a post and ping back to this one,
Or paste the link to your post in the comments section below.

Then I’ll be able to find it real quick and feature it in next Saturday’s edition.

Final remarks

I hope you visit this week’s featured posts and the ones highlighted from last week’s prompt.
Read, like/comment.

I welcome any ideas on how I can improve this feature within its theme of sharing and interaction.

And I more than welcome your participation.
Stay safe and stay loving.

      1. That is wonderful, Jude. I haven’t been able to write any poetry lately. Fortunately, my darker supernatural writing hasn’t been effected by this lockdown.

    While I am not sure how to create it or add it, have you tried or thought of using Mr. Linky that I have seen in other prompt sites? That would save you some work I think. If you need a site that has such – I think Colleen’s has it for Tanka Tuesday.

    Be back later. Hope you are having a great day! Cheers Jules

      Hi Jules, I considered it but I’m still enjoying making little reviews for the ponderous writers. I haven’t come across anybody who does that.
      Looking forward to your return.

        A nice touch. Kind of like what some other blogs do… but not quite when they feature two or three in a post. Or do a reblog. Can’t reblog my site because I don’t accept the like button. Why those to things are connected is beyond me. But then WP is eventually going to switch everyone over to the ‘New Editor’ but I read that supposedly there will be some ‘Classic Editor’ choices – though it will not be exactly the same.

        The new editor is horrible for me and poetry. Im dreading that day.

      3. Jules says:

        At one point or other I had to take a WP survey and told them that the new editor wasn’t good for poets and I really didn’t like them shoving it down my throat. Maybe that’s why they made the compromise…but since I haven’t seen the ‘compromise’ up close and personal… I just think if something isn’t broken they shouldn’t fix it or at least give folks the option to keep the editor we’ve got and like.

        I wish I’d seen the survey. I’d have participated with enthusiasm. The new editor is really a challenge for the freedom that poetry forms require.

        I suppose you could find some WP Leadership and write them a letter? Even editing a piece or a page (I did something this morning with a page…) in their ‘newish’ format left quite a bit off the table like easy to get to colors, italics… and the spacing – So I tend to go back to my ‘old way of doing things – working out of the Dashboard. I’ve been telling them the line spacing for poems is just horrid. So that’s why I copy and paste my verses and stories. I really am not happy with the extra line spacing.

    I paired with another prompt for: Jaded Shades

    Some of us have had more than one mother… And those other mothers… Well some days were better than others. But family is created by time and respect. Long distance caring is hard, but if that is all that’s allowed then I expect no complaining… which of course I had to mention when the memory, hers was working better.

  9. Your Saturday Symphony is a smorgasbord of flavourful verses, Jude. Your poem is beautifully serene.
