THINGS WITH STRINGS

THINGS WITH STRINGS Spider's web, strings of stars, a weaver's loom, and old guitars. Balls of yarn, and DNA, string bikini, and crochet. Cats cradle, spools of thread, Tails on kites, and hairs on head. Theory in music, or in science, together making a string alliance. Yo-yo, and Pinocchio, harp, violin and cello. Catgut bow, and strings of cheese, or whiskers on a prized Siamese. Silly String, and G-string, an strings of birds on wing. Math strings, "No strings attached," a roof that's been heather thatched. String quilts, strings of pearls, strings that tie to locks of curls. Music staff, and balls of twine, and tendrils from a sweet pea vine. Heart, balloon, and aprons too, and laced up in a tennis shoe. Garland, hamstring, and quartet, strings on fingers to not forget. Braided rings, and strings of lights, pulling strings, and fishnet tights. Telephone string through tin cans, woven blankets and knit afghans. Brown paper packages tied up in string, needle, lanterns, and wind chimes that sing. Drawstring, bowstring, and baby's pull toy, string, strung, and stringing, we're all overjoyed.

Hello! THANK YOU... I see PS rearranged the menu! It was “Manage Poetry” & now it’s “My Poetry”. Hmmm! They put it in a strange order too so “Things w Strings” is first, but I haven’t discovered why yet! I haven’t been writing. Everything has centered on 90 yr old dad & I’m behind in my own life. Sigh.

Thanks Mike! I love rhyming the List genre instead of just making a list! How are you? Surviving the pandemic and Lockdown? Doing anything with your music?

Oh I’m so pleased you found the play and fun in this! What I was going for! I have been a ballet dancer (once upon a time) so I like things to move and form a story! Lively is a compliment!

It was fun fun fun to write. I wrote it some time ago but noticed it was gone from my list when I was sharing the “List genre” with another Soup member explaining we could mix the list genre with rhyme (or any genre). Just keep the list and add a 2nd genre. So I decided to repost it!
