#NaPoWriMo Fun Clerihew Bonus

Winning tickets to see Queen
+ Adam Lambert was keen
Solo by Brian May brings back
Timeless music of beloved throwback

This may not follow the clerihew structure in the strictest sense as Queen is a band and not the name of an individual, but then the names of two people are added to the poem so I claim poetic license.

 

Buffalo Day 716

Tuesday was Buffalo Day because the area code for Buffalo, NY is 716. Since Buffalo is called the queen city of the great lakes, I thought it was rather appropriate I attended the Queen & Adam Lambert concert in Phoenix, AZ. Yes, I live far away from the town I grew up in. We have been enjoying the Arizona sun for twenty years now.

Indeed a great date

Date Night Selfie

Last week I was reading a rejection email for one of my poems, feeling bummed and as I scanned down my list of unread emails I saw one from 95.5 the mountain. I clicked on it and read, Congratulations, you’re a winner! Yes, we were able to go to the Queen & Adam Lambert concert for free. Both Shawn and I loved the concert. Everyone involved put on a great show. Today’s #haikuchallenge word is indeed. I’m a little rusty on the haiku front; haven’t been writing much this summer.

Shawn is a huge Rush fan. We saw them in concert in 2012. Sorry for the poor picture taken with my phone and somewhat shaky. I’m not a fan of heights and as you can see we’re pretty high in the arena. Dayton Ward wrote a short story for the 2113 anthology due out in April. Through him, I learned they had an advance sample going out of one story. Of course I had to order and it came in time for Shawn’s birthday. He was even impressed it’s an autographed sample.

Okay, I couldn’t help it. I know bad poem, but since writing my other pieces this morning, Queen has been playing in my head.
