I got the second prompt from Tweetspeakpoetry and it is:
The Prompt, Based on Barkat’s Poem
Barkat creates irresistible sounds by employing “expert vocabulary,”
or specific words from a field, such as gardening. Write a poem that catalogs a variety of words you may not commonly use—it could be language from ice hockey, chemistry, or raising guinea pigs. Doing a bit
of research first is okay. Play with the words and enjoy the sounds
of them bumping and crashing together.
That’s gonna be fun. I am soon off to the hospital to have my breast examined. I notoriously get cysts. Didn’t really want to go because it seems to be the same all the time. But this one is rather big so after I got told off by my friends I go and am going to write an “ode to my cysts” when waiting there.
Find the words I am using here at Breast Cancer Care (and if you are one of those who skipped any cancer screening test go and make an appointment because you never know…)
I am on my way now… Google says 44 minutes but I do not trust Google (or my sense of following Google’s directions 😁)
Made it in 55 minutes 😁
Signed in ready to verse 🤪
Called in 🙄
12.25 back out 😍
13.25 back home and versing at last 😁
Ode to my cyst
You benign growth of mine
Many of you
Have I “treasured”
Embedded in glandular tissue.
Fibrous I am.
But Mother Nature is kind.
Benign you are
Alas quite big
But benign you are!!!!
Just in case you are interested: yes it was a cyst and apparently the biggest they have ever emptied at 55ml. What a whopper. No wonder it hurt. Usual I have about half that and they say then it’s big.
So my faith in the NHS is restored because I fully expected having to come back for more procedures. The powers that be shall bless that doctor and the nurse!!!!
May you have a wonderful Saturday and if you want to celebrate with me the wonderful invention our breasts are (sorry gentlemen… 😁) then feel free to dance like no one’s watching 😘
