L'aura del campo


'é a lua, é a lua, na quintana dos mortos'
♣ Federico García Lorca ♣


Higgins Street Bridge, April 25th  2009, Missoula, Montana


L'aura del campo. A breeze in the meadow. So it began the last day of Spring, 2005; on the 16th day of the month of Light of the year 162. This is a supplement to my daily journal written to a friend, my muse; notes I do not share. Here I will share what the breeze has whispered to me.

"Gynaecologist"

A trenchant voice sliced
through the train,

"Baby Killer!",

the self-righteous safe on one side,
you on the left.

K.E (27.february.2020)

Prompt: trenchant (keen, sharp, cutting). No particular poetic device. Purposeful word choice. righteous/left can have double meanings; trenchant/sliced along with the title "gynaecologist" and accusation "baby killer" make a clear statement as to what is transpiring.

"Sheep may safely graze"

Wolves surround white blobs that bleat.

But three bark back.

"Interlopers"

yowls a Beta male,

turns tail,
besieged.

© Kåre Enga (25.februar.2020)

Alliteration of 'b', 'bl' 't'. Rhyme of male/tail. A jarring interruption of Bach's adagio?

"All hail the coming elections"

Post

Pinnacle of Pain


piles
of cynical remains

remain.

Like Pompeii:

ash

protecting nothing.

K.E. 24.february.2020

Obvious alliteration, rhyme and repetitions. Pauses are important while reading. Prompt was "pinnacle". Hard to snip from 28 to 24 syllables.

Clover Middle School Teachers' Lounge

You chew;
they moo.

Then laughing, fling food AT you. Rude!
they need to change their attitude.

If not...
you'll sue.

K.E. 22.february.2020

2/2 8/8 2/2
Stanza/line breaks and punctuation slow the reader down and emphasize certain words.
Overall rhyme a/a b/b x/a.
Internal rhymes by syllable:

aa
xa
xxbbcdac
xxaxxdxc
xx
xa

An iambic rhythm is possible when reading out-loud, especially the second time.
Assonance brought to you by "oo": chew/moo/food/you/rude/to/attitude/you'll/sue.
"At you. Rude!" mirrors "attitude".
Title provides place and a bit of irony.
24 syllable prompt: attitude. After writing I realized prompt was "attributes" not "attitude" Oh, well!

"Mary Anthony in Medina"

Mary howled words she soon begged to resile,
growled them again and now must kneel
to lose instead
her head.

Kåre Enga 19.february.2020

xxaxxxxxxb
axxxxxxb
xxxc
xc

10/8/4/2 which gives a quickening rhythm as rhymes c/c are closer than a/a or b/b. A play on names, history and perhaps a harsh reality for some women today. I guess the rhyme of resile/kneel can be considered a near rhyme if you pronounce resile to rhyme with aisle. As an American I haven't used this word before. It's an old word but not common.

In so many words...
or few.
Tantrum, rant, insane or inane...
he waxes insolent to the core.

Kare Enga 18.february.2020

No rhythm, no rhyme, alliterative 'in'.
