Beacon bacon

I am really enjoying RonovanWrites‘s weekly Haiku prompt challenge. Also he made me laugh here at the “ow” comment. Thank you for making me laugh! The problems are that I have trouble spelling Ronovan (I want to put the o at the end and the a in the middle) and is the apostrophe in the correct place? These are things to ponder. Today’s prompt is Field and beacon. I have been rereading Walt Kelly’s Pogo comics, wordplay and spellingplay all over the place. He makes up words or combines word or misspells words on poipoise. It is wonderful play. So the first word that comes to my mind with field and beacon is, of course, bacon. Wasn’t that true for you? And bacon sparks a whole other train of thought. My brain is like one of those old fashioned train stations, where the engine was place on the central track and could be turned to start off in another direction, or even turned to face back towards the train that it had just pulled in….

And another track: I have a friend of 30+ years who works on rear end devices. Trains, not twerking…. rear end devices replaced cabooses. I liked cabooses better then the rear end box. And we could now go soaring off into black boxes and airplanes…..

Here are the words I played with:

Field, beacon, bacon, become

feel, felt, belt, real steal meal

steal, steeled, feeled, deal.

And the result:

Bacon beacon past

beckons. Feeling real steel field.

Feeling begs, I yield.

The photo is from a place where bacon was loved. Peace be with you.

    I hjave recently become a fan of POETRY . . . amazed at how creative people can string ordinary words together and show a real meaning with feelings. UNTIL I have more time, I can’t really participate, but on this I must say I am most impressed.

  6. Bacon equals ‘beacon’ broken
    An ‘E’ taken and forsaken
    Sandwich filled with added ‘L’ to field
    And a delicious breakfast is now grilled!

    First entry for this week’s Haiku Challenge comes from Dr. KO. I think you will all enjoy the different way she goes about this. Will I say ouch this time? Will Ron O’van comment with some type of Haikumment? You just never know, do you? And she’s gets bonus points this week as well. :)
