Welcome to the Weekend Mini Challenge with Kim from writinginnorthnorfolk.
I have been reading How to be a Woman by Caitlin Moran. It’s a humorous book by one of my favourite journalists, whose Saturday column in The Times Magazine is a weekly read for me. I’ve also been listening to the serialisation on BBC Radio 4, which has had me laughing out loud.
One phrase that jumped out at me this week is ‘sarcastic percussion’. As I rolled it around my tongue, wondering what sarcastic percussion might sound like and pondering all of its interpretations, my mind threw up a couple of other similar phrases, such as ‘vitriolic violins’ and ‘optimistic flutes’. All of which led me to this week’s prompt:
Choose an instrument, give it a characteristic adjective or a personality, and write a poem about it, in any form of your choice. It doesn’t have to be about the instrument or music. But it must include a phrase like ‘sarcastic percussion’. You can take it wherever you want – I can’t wait to see what you make of it!
Using the poetic cymbal of your finger, join in by clicking on Mister Linky and filling in your name and url – not forgetting to tick the small ‘data’ box. And please remember to read and comment on other toads’ poems – I’m hoping for an exotic orchestra of poetry!
