One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

FASHION ME YOUR WORDS: SLOWLY

FASHION ME YOUR WORDS: SLOWLY



That was: Despacito Parang by The Los Alumnos De San Juan Parang Group of Trinidad and Tobago

HERE'S AN IDEA OF WHAT THEY ARE SINGING:


Si, this is the time of the year when we luv to share
With our friends and family fans and foes
The days are short and longer the atsmosphere
Filled with love and laughter joy and care
Here's what
Look! we getting ready to wend up to Lopinot
The traffic tune up party ready for the show
We going nobody want to miss Los Alumnos
Then! we getting ready to wend up to Paramin
Where five in the morning we still paranging
If you love your parang let me see you do so
If you love your parang let me see you do so
If you love your parang let me see you do so
Despactio
This is happenning right here in Sweet Trinbago
We getting ready for the birth of Jesucristo
We doing lots of shopping everybody never so much love so
Despactio
This is how we do it here in sweet Trinbago
We moving house to house we don't have to know you
We eating and drinking everthing you bring yeah...



YOUR CHALLENGE: having heard and wrapped your pens, pencils and key-tapping fingers around the video,
Fashion me your words around the theme 'SLOWLY' in a poem of NOT MORE THAN 100 WORDS


NOTE
Parang - a genre of Christmas Music from Trinidad and Tobago ...


HAVE FUN TOADS!!!


SO NOW HERE'S Luis Fonsi - Despacito ft. Daddy Yankee


FELIZ NAVIDAD TOADS

Happy Holiday Season! Thank you for the videos, demonstrating parang. And for the prompt, which slotted nicely into what was going on here. (Grin.)

Wishing all the garden, who celebrate the Christmas festivities a very happy time - and to all who come together over the Winter/Summer solstice to enjoy the warmth of family during holiday time, my most grateful love to you and yours.

Thanks Gillena for the nice prompt and the cool video
I re-fitted a poem I just posted about an hour ago into 100 words to fit the prompt and surprisingly I like it better than the full version
Merry Christmas everyone!

Thank you for your prompt. Only 59 words is this haibun. My husband has been in the hospital for several days. It is slow. The only speed in the hospital.

Have a wonderful whatever it is you celebrate everyone! Hanukkah just ended here and I had my Solstice celebration. I'm looking forward to Chinese food and movie day. Finally I'll get to see Star Wars.
