Now, on to today’s agenda…
The Harrisham Rhyme was created by Harrisham Minhas, of Punjab, India. It consists of one six-line rhyming stanza. In this form, the last letter of the first word of each line becomes the first letter of the first word of the next line.
Rhyme scheme : ababab.
MARIE ELENA’S HARRISHAM:
Whatever heroes come my way,
Rescuing me from self-chagrin
Gently persuade my heart to weigh
Youth’s suppleness against thick skin
Supplied by dose of day-to-day
Deliverance of what has been.
(Also inspired by Paula Wanken’s “Heroes or Villains” prompt at Poetic Asides.)

CURRIER AND IVES LIVES
Winter sends her tell-tale signs of an early showing,
reaching the ground in large aerated flakes
glistening. I stand listening to it silently blowing
ground covered in little time, that’s all it takes.
Drifts stretching across the yard; it’s still snowing,
such a lovely picture print it makes.
