The writing task this Stirred was a present orientated one. Here are the results of asking, What would you like to give Stirred for it’s Unbirthday? The answers varied from birthday bumps, a singing ringing tree, a hug, unmusical chairs, a new bicycle, the two winners offered a snow ball and a kiss!
A belated kiss to stir the lovers
to frost the air
and a tingle warmth down his throat
to move away unwanted presents.
And then Shauna’s offering:
A snowball in the face.
Thanks also to the rhyming entry for Stirred, which involved a lager cake, birthday tea and punchbowls!
The next Stirred is coming up on the 5th March, and we are theming it around music. So you might read a poem that’s been inspired by a song, that incorporates lyrics or has a musicality to it. I’m not quite sure of the word musicality, google defines it as the quality or state of being musical, a ballet forum discusses it as getting into the skin of the music…..in our case word-music!
