Luddite or not…

Today at the BrewNSpew Cafe
we are challenged to write a poem using the word,
Luddite
a person who is opposed to increased industrialization or new technology.
Synonyms – a broken record, anorak, bore

Here’s my poem;

I have blogs, one is Patricia’s Place
the other is Day of Grace
So, to technology, I am not opposed
as perhaps some may have supposed
Though I have no cable or satellite
I watch TV most every night
You see, I do have WIFI connection
for the computer, telephone, and television
Set in my ways I may be
Luddite no one can call me
I hope every night as I yawn
to see what’s new at dawn

The Gloaming…

It’s Tuesday at the BrewNSpew Cafe
This week’s challenge is to write a poem using the word gloaming.
I have come to the Cafe a bit late today but I do have a poem.

In the shadows of twilight
She walks alone in candlelight
Through darkness and gloom
With aching heart to the tomb
In the gloaming of nightfall
She awaits her lover’s call

Quiddity…

Here I am at BrewNSpew Cafe where some the chatter is about writing a poem using the word quiddity.  First I ever heard of the word. Good thing Eugenia included the definition;

quiddity (noun) – 1) the real nature of a thing; the essence 2) a petty or trifling distinction; quibble. Synonyms – essence, heart and soul, inwardness, nitty-gritty, pith, substance, haecceity.

Now that I know what it means…here goes.

Wandering through life
Searching for its quiddity
Journey of wonder
