    Hello, everyone. It's been quite a while since our first picture prompt and I know everybody has been busy especially during the holidays. I am reviving this thread, with the same system: each one will have a chance to post a picture here for us to interpret thru a poem. I would like to continue where we left off, so I am asking Michael to give us a picture prompt next Friday. Michael will then assign who will be the next one to give the prompt.

    A prompt is intended to make us explore on our poetry.
    This is our picture for this week:

    Let's see how you unleash your creativity with this. Every one is encouraged to post his/her piece here, also to leave his/her comments on other poems posted. :-)

    Spanish Ladies

    Three Spanish ladies sway under the tree
    Such beautiful flowers, lovely to see
    Those three hearts combined with skirts to the knee
    watching them dance always fills me with glee

    Hot Spanish tapas and full bodied wine
    skirts waving, feet tapping all in a line
    I look at their smiles all sunny and shine
    a celebration of fruit from the vine

    This Spanish music is under my skin
    for me not to join them seems such a sin
    I roll up my jeans to show off my shin
    Slide in beside them with a joyful grin

    Wow, what a way to start, Milly!!! Loved your fiery Spanish interpretation! Ohhh, this is pretty cool and just amazing. Really well rhymed too! We also get to see your fun side here. Loved it!

    Mardi Gras

    The floats rumble
    beads tumble
    dancing strutters
    make hearts flutter
    bands play
    crowds sway
    more floats
    screaming throats
    “throw to me!”
    grab booty:
    toys that glow
    carnival dough.

    Parade ends
    your back bends
    so many beads!
    too much greed
    carry it home
    parade syndrome
    tomorrow night
    do it right
    catch even more
    til arms are sore.

    La Cha Cha Boom

    La Cha Cha Weeeee, La Cha Boom
    We dance and sing, like this til noon
    Sway to the right, and to the left
    La Cha Cha, we dance from the womb

    We dance and whirl, to the drum beat
    Many people dance with us too
    Shake the snake and dance the dipper
    We all dance here on Cha Cha street

    La Cha Cha Weeeee, La Cha Boom
    We dance and sing like this til noon
    Sway to the right and to the left
    La Cha Cha, we dance to our tomb
