C is for Carousel

Carousel: a merry-go-round / a rotating machine or device, a revolving case or tray used for storage or display. / a tournament or exhibition in which horsemen execute evolutions.

Carousal: a wild, drunken party or celebration.

How to Carousel:
spin until you see fairies
riding unicorns.

Weave fresh baked rainbows,
Jousting chevaliers with lances
will build the framework.

Spray some child´s laughter
over mermaid´s lullabies
for a gentle spin.

Don´t let the horsemen
Celebrate till breakdown, else
Police will show up.

Senryu 3 of 26 I´ll be doing this april to participate in #AtoZChallenge, #NaPoWriMo and #CampNaNoWriMo. Did you like it? Don´t be shy, leave a comment. I´d love if you add a blog hop so I can visit your post, too.

This is my Spanish haiku counterpart: C de Carrusel. Why, do you ask? My wonderful crew, #NaNoTribuMX started a micro stories challenge in Spanish this month. (We´re still voting the words we will use this month).

The team’s theme of the April Blogging from A to Z Challenge this year is:
ACCOMPLISHING YOUR DREAMS, AND THE DUALITY OF 22; to see all cool bloggers participating this challenge, you can click on the Master List of #AtoZChallenge.

Today’s NaPoWriMo‘s prompt: to write a poem . . . in the form of a poetry prompt.

If you are participating on these challenges, I wish you good luck and lots of success. 😀

  1. I like the word carousel better than merry-go-round, although I’ve only ever called them merry-go-rounds. Lovey poem. “spin until you see fairies riding unicorns” I quite like that!
