* The Blitz Poem, a poetry form created by Robert Keim.

This form of poetry is a stream of short phrases and images with repetition and rapid flow.

Begin with one short phrase, it can be a cliché. Begin the next line with another phrase that begins with the same first word as line 1. The first 48 lines should be short, but at least two words.

The third and fourth lines are phrases that begin with the last word of the 2nd phrase, the 5th and 6th lines begin with the last word of the 4th line, and so on, continuing, with each subsequent pair beginning with the last word of the line above them, which establishes a pattern of repetition.

Continue for 48 total lines with this pattern, And then the last two lines repeat the last word of line 48, then the last word of line 47.

The title must be only three words, with some sort of preposition or conjunction joining the first word from the third line to the first word from the 47th line, in that order.

There should be no punctuation. When reading a BLITZ, it is read very quickly, pausing only to breathe.

What is the perfect pizza?
home-made pizza freshly prepared pizza
We usually make our own pizza, with lots of different things in it – tomatoes, cheese, pepperoni, salami, ham, mushrooms, pineapple, onions, etc. We usually slice and chop the ingredients and put whatever we fancy on our side of the pizza. It’s really delicious!

Complete this sentence: I’m looking forward to…. This weekend when I’m flying to the UK to see my Mum before she flies back to the Philippines. HRH the son and his beautiful bride are also coming to meet us at my brother’s house and we’ll have a jolly time. After ten days, I’m flying back to Germany. Then, just unpack and then pack again for India. Yes, two days after I arrived, Him Indoors and I are off to India for the son and his beautiful bride’s wedding, Indian version. We’ll be staying there for two weeks. We’ll be visiting the bride’s family and relatives, have the wedding, and then tour the south of India after the wedding. Really, really looking forward to it!

Have a gorgeous week everyone!

“Time Flies If You Have Fun”

Schools’ out for summer
Playing, running and swimming
Childhood memories

When I was young, summer was my favourite season. The sun was out, flowers bloomed and everything was bright and beautiful. It was the time we played outside all day (until our parents called us for dinner), cycled around our village, and seek our adventure in all places. We also swam in creeks and lakes, climbed trees, ate fruit we picked, played hide and seek. On other days, we played patintero (try to cross my line without letting me touch or catch you), tumbang preso (hit the can), piko (hopscotch) or luksong-tinik (lit. jump over the thorns of a plant). Sometimes we rented some bikes and circled around our neighbourhood. It was a happy childhood.

Summer is still my favourite season. I love it when we could be lazy and not do anything. Or staying in the garden and drinking some cold drinks, listening to the birds singing. I love our garden, full of lavenders, roses, dahlias, petunias, sunflowers, and the three tortoises walking around their fenced paradise half of our garden (spoiled pets!). I also love it when we cycle to different beer gardens and parks, or go to the mountains to walk or swim in the lakes.
