Day 14. The end of two weeks! Can you believe it? Two-weeks-plus left to go.
Maureen Thorson's NaPoWriMo prompt "invites us to try a seven-line poem called a san san, which means 'three three' in Chinese (It’s also a term of art in the game Go). The san san has some things in common with the tritina, including repetition and rhyme. In particular, the san san repeats, three times, each of three terms or images. The seven lines rhyme in the pattern a-b-c-a-b-d-c-d. . . . I hope you have fun giving the san san a try. Happy writing!"
Robert Lee Brewer's PAD prompt: "For today’s prompt, write a time out poem. There are moments in my life that I wish I could take a time out. For instance, it would’ve been nice earlier this year when I had pneumonia, but life and work keeps chugging along. But there’s always a chance to take time outs in poetry if you dare. So dare to write a time out poem (or two) today."

Would you write a comment below, please, if you have a guess what the solution to the riddle is? Thanks.

If you think you know what this is, would you write a comment below, please? Thanks.
Ven very ambitiously tried to all three prompts: "san san," "time out," and "kennings."
Pretty amazing juggling act there, Ven.
Jed followed Brewer's "time out" prompt today.
About today's poem, Alan says, "Here's my attempt at the san san form."
Great use of /l/ sounds, Alan: lying, lay, like love's lessons, release, etc.
