Harmonious – Sedoka Poem

Written In Response To:

BrewNSpew Cafe Word Of The Week – Harmonious –  May 6, 2019

when the storm rages

all is chaos around you

still, a beacon of light shines

*

the soul keeps singing

lyrics to the song of peace

sweet sounds create a rainbow

Manufactured Discord

The Haunted Wordsmith Story Starter Challenge & Opposites Attract Challenge

Story Starter:  Today’s sentence: “Sitting on the front porch.”

Opposites Attract:  For this challenge, I provide one word and a list of its antonyms. The challenge is to use the prompt word AND one (or more) of its antonyms in some form of writing (or creative work). 

Today’s prompt: discord.

Antonyms: accord, agreement, concord, concordance, harmony, peace.

Here's to Spring sunrises, foggy mornings and coffee on the porch. Happy Saturday friends! I'll be taking care of a preemie lamb today.…

Sitting on the front porch sipping tea

inhaling fresh air and sunshine

basking in the peace and harmony

of nature’s ever so sweet symphony

thinking; does it get any better than this?

when all of a sudden I was startled

right out of my still state of mind

by some loud discord filled with words unkind

I could not believe what I was hearing

conversations like this don’t happen in this clearing

for we are a quiet, peace lovin’ folk out here

as I listened closer, I realized it was coming from

inside my house and went to investigate and found

my husband had all the way turned up the T.V. sound

because the forgetful old fool

forgot to put in his hearing aid tool!
