Two By Two: Fun With Couplets (a poetry event)

All conversation on this post
must occur in couplets.

Rhyming or not, metered or not, just one or not,
it matters not as long as it's in couplets.

Talk about your day, how you're feeling,
media you've recently consumed, anything you like.

Today's prompt is blue
but you can discuss other things too.

Anon comments screened
unless you say otherwise.

Please signal-boost
if you feel so inclined.

a topic of surprising contention
given all the seasonal convention

whether one likes pumpkin spice
or finds just pumpkin nice

Yes but what is the ideal device
to make the perfect pumpkin spice?

A dash of ginger and of nutmeg, yum!
a slip of the hand, a flavor bomb!

Ginger, nutmeg, clove and mace
Put me in a happy place.

Add a dash of crushed black pepper
Or chai-like masala to make it better.

Autumn, in many ways, is nice
but one of my favorites is pumpkin spice.

That 90s song, or was it millenial?
I'm blue, da ba dee da ba die

I used to listen, while reading about Vanyel,
queer love and loss; past self would never dare try

Halloween approaches! Costume time!
Should be ready, here's my rhyme:

"Ahuizotl's minions, flunkies, and crew,
Shall cower before the power...of Daring Do!"

Good fortune to follow good skill.
Hope your performance goes according to your will.

You went and performed in public without your part buying the farm,
That you were nervous is part of the charm.

Unless this terror is not your character's forte,
The idea behind it may be worth trying to court.

One performance finished, the terrors can subside,
Now you know you can do it and be this particular bride.

From here, your comfort grows, it's true,
So you'll end up getting words, and emotions, in time for round two.
