A COUPLE OF EXAMPLES FROM KAREN......
overdrive teen talk box
animated words and laughs ring
THAT CRAZY PHONE !
at 2 AM
asking about poodles
it's an April Fool's joke much too

and a couple more from ZHANNA....
HIS BLACK-PEARLY SMILE
sparkling coal eyes
and mouth..My little girl
suggests that he should also brush
about the rain,
I struggled to create;
I strained my brain, but all in vain —

A FEW EXAMPLES FROM BRIAN........
T M S (Test Match Special -Cricket)
The rain stopped play;
Depression in the box----
Everything already said
A 'umbling game,
It's all in the mind,just
One swing away from a problem--
TOUR DE FRANCE
Eye each other,
Manoeuvre to and fro,
With tactics to lance the yellow
So lightly trips,
Every stanza versed even stich
