FFfAW-Week of 10-06-2015

This week's photo prompt is provided by Etol Bagam. 


So excited, can’t sit still

So happy to be here with Bill

The first anniversary date

With my soul mate

A show, live theatre

There isn’t anything neater

Squeezing past knees and bags

Perfume smells, nose gags

Coughs and sneezes

And lemon squeezes

Coats and hats and many a shuffle

Settling down, quietening the kerfuffle

The lights slowly dim

The band begins to strum

Quietly leading to the anticipated entrance

Many eyes rapt in a collective trance

Feet start stomping

Hands clapping

Seats rocking

Bodies swaying

In time to the rhythm

No boredom

In this auditorium.

Interval /Intermission

Chocolate ice cream

Or vanilla

Or strawberry ripple

In a plastic tub

Licked with relish amongst the hubbub

No time to read the programme

A deep breath to fill the diaphragm

All too soon, the final bows

The curtain call, the encore

Two hours of sheer delight

A wonderful, fantastic night.


  1. How great it seems to be in love and in that place with Bill. Everything matters, and everything has an air of magic, even the little things that others might overlook. :D :D :D I really like your take of this prompt. Great job!

  2. This is a wonderful poem! I like rhyming poetry. I love your take to the prompt. Very nice!! Thank you for your participation!

  3. Really nice rhyming poem. I like the flow of it. :)

  4. The rhythm of this poem speeds along like a wonderful night out when time seems to fly and is over too soon. My favorite part is the description of getting seated -- I hate climbing over people in crowded theaters which is why I always go for an aisle seat if possible. I'd rather let them climb over me.

  5. Oh so cool. Love your poetry!
    This week I'm out of the flash fiction run - seems real life has called. Plumbing issues and such will silence the muse. :)
