Poetry Friday! "Pitch"

Poetry Friday is brought to you by Mona!
Miss Julie Andrews
famous for Mary Poppins
sings in perfect pitch

the workmen are perched
high upon the steep pitched roof
hammering shingles

vacuum salesman knocks
throws coffee grounds on the floor
how's that for a pitch?

after a long day
of paddling the canoe
we gladly pitch tents!

these are my haikus
it seemed hard so they are lame
think i will pitch them!

say good-bye to pitch
mother of invention says
a new word next week!

Old Lady: Try the poetry thing sometime! Yours would be entertaining!

Chase: Thanks,Chase. You too!


Mona: Thanks! That actually happened when I was home sick. I had to tell the guy I was going to barf and then made all these upchuck sounds before he finally backed away and left! Then I vacuumed up the dirt with my Costco Dust/Dirt Devil!

Maggie: Thanks, Maggie. You didn't pitch out a poem today?

Meno: Ah! Good one! Try Poetry Fri. sometime...yours would be great!

RDG: Thanks! Join us sometime in our frivolity!

Pitch my here
and pitch my there

everthing is very clear

In Harraps Dictionnaire English - French, it's allmost a collumn of different meanings of Pitch. Then again, when translating all the french words into Norwegian, I got a novell.

Fantastic. And they let computers translate.

Don't or may be you should pitch this weekend. LOL.

Great post.

Your words are so musical Mona, please don't 'pitch' them! I enjoyed reading every word! They made pretty 'pitch'ers in my mind and arrgh I can't write LOL!

:-) How about 'football pitch' or 'rugby pitch' or 'cricket pitch'... but maybe you don't call the grounds that over there? and also 'pitch', that is a kind of tar for roads :-)

Excellent, MOI! I have still yet to work out the exact form of haikus, but, as I told Brian, I will have to soon - my blogging friends all seem to know all about it... I'm beginning to feel decidedly ignorant!



I just came to tell you, your brilliant (poem put to) song "From the Soul Within" is now up and running on Words that Flow", until we can get it to yours!

You can also see it on YouTube... I'm thinking it might be very popular!! (I certainly can't get it out of my head! So catchy! :-))

Going back to bed now.. only had an hour or so sleep...

Oh yes, and I'll blame you for my extra pounds this morning - having indulged in the food cupboard all night... snacking while editing is a very pleasant pastime!!

Maggie: Isaw it and I always find your spin on these words very unique...and usually with a hot and steamy twist! Thanks.

Toraa: I can imagine the novel you get with all the meanings there are for this word! No way, I'm pitching the weekend, unless I'm selling it!


Nancy: Thanks and for the visit too! I'll check yours out soon!

Lynclay: Oh, I (MOI) wrote them, Mona is the girl who set up the Poetry Friday thing and we go there on Thursdays to see the word for the topic. Thanks. Hey, what if they had Art Fridays and they gave you a topic to paint or create something about that word? That would be really interesting, but with art, I guess they'd need to give you a week instead of 1 day to post it!

Annelisa: Yes, we do call it a soccer pitch or just field.

All Haiku are 3 lines long, 1st and 3rd lines are 5 syllables, and the 2nd line is 7. That's all. I've never seen any rhyme or special rhythm involved. it's mostly the content and words that separate the good and not so good poems.

Thanks for putting the song up! Your video goes beautifully with my song! Hope lots of people view it...48 have so far!

"Edisnacking" is deadly for poundages!!! Just love that new word!

There is just a whole lotta sweetness going on around here this morning...I'm going to go put some flowers in my hair; I just realized who you are MOI... you are the lady that ran the Freedom School in "Billy Jack"! Jean,thats it!
i'm going to be humming that littl tune for a while!
Is Annelisa the best or what?

Steve: Isn't there just?!! Too sweet! Thanks for listening, Steve, and humming along! Amazing what can happen when bloggers team up..like when you did recipes for RDG's shoes!

I don't think I've seen that movie...better rent it tonight!
Annelisa'a the best! Too bad she lives so darn far away. Now that's CRUMBY of you to call her names!!!

Scraps o' bread now, am I? :-D and stuck in the keyboard too! I don't know... probably get eaten by the birds next :-) Actually, I must be soggy bread, only fit for the ducks now... just read Steve's Thursday's post about Arnold (Angel)... that got me going! (what's 'mwlxw' ?)

"Edisnacking" is just an absolutely perfect word for what I was doing last night, MOI!

It was 92 when I looked just now! :-)
Be thankful there's a great ocean between us... I could be over there knocking the two of you into techi-shape :-D Mind you, I don't think you guys are doing so badly anyhow... leaps and bounds this last couple of weeks! And, I suppose we're only on the other end of the net... which can be pretty instant, can't it! (although this isn't)

I've heard of blogging parties. I reckon that must be where everyone goes round someone's blog, and you kind of talk to each other on blog? I suppose.

I would have never have thought to write poetry about the word pitch. Interesting topic and I love the various meanings that you were able to use in your poem. You have a great talent for poetry.

Hi Ruthie: As you know Gail and I played your song at our wedding. Hard to believe it was nearly five years ago. We're not too bright up here in Washago.Checked it out on youtube because we didn't have the sense to scroll down far enough on your site to see it and we both thought we were just looking at a picture of the sun till it moved along. Like I say were not too quick. Love the song and the video. You are an inspiration to us both. God Bless
