Absolut Fierce: Monday Mission





This post has been a Monday Mission. Your mission is to write a post in the form of a Tanga or a Nonnet (each is a specific type of poem, click on the word for a link to a description of the poetry). Mission suggested, again, by the fabulous de at An Indigo Virgo.

My entry is a Tanga - a five line poem (in this case a Tanka, 5-7-5-7-7) superimposed on an image. I am, admittedly, totally entranced with the idea of a nonnet, and may yet come back and write one of those. Someone humor me and get the ball rolling!

If you play along please put a link to your mission post in the widget below.




And join us next week, when your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to write a post in the form of an outgoing voicemail message.

Does anyone get the "Absolut Fierce" reference in my post title? (hint: not just the vodka... it's from a movie)

kitty is oh so fierce looking, I'm shaking in my boots. Love the picture and the Tanka--this was a very interesting exercise.

Great pic.

And I finally participated. Yay me!

Wow, this one took some doing, since I'm a novice at imaging with text!

But mine is at my Reflections blog, linked above (or below).

Now THERE is a sophisticated LOLcat!

Fantastic kitteh photo and poem! I can entirely relate to the sentiments. (yawn)

Thanks for continuing the MMs, Painted. (Mmmm...M&Ms...)

(Clearly I need a nap and some chocolate. Not necessarily in that order.)

There is something awfully fun about writing in such a constrained form.

Hmmmm, I wrote a comment on this... must've been another one of those rush-out-of-the-room-before-hitting-
publish moments :-(

I loved your Tanga and photo, however I was intimidated when you asked us to be technologically advanced enough to put text on a photo...

Love this! So sorry I did not do it. Maybe later. Um, perhaps what I would do if I had more time would be the Monday Missions.
