    Already behind the curve
    Always in the past

    Let the good times roll!

  • @wyatt  Jan 2019

    Ten inches of snow
    B ut FAWM brings a glimpse of Spring
    Winter rolls away

  • @pearlmanhattan  Jan 2019

    It is just cold here.
    Frozen, iced, miserable
    No snow, I'm bummed.

  • @oddbod  Jan 2019

    *dons pedant's hat*
    @pearlmanhattan are you pronouncing that last word with 2 syllables "bum-med" ? πŸ˜‰

  • @pearlmanhattan  Jan 2019

    Yep, lol, meant to say, ...i'm so bummed, forgot to count on my fingers

  • @oddbod  Jan 2019

    counting syllables?
    The pedant inside me says
    Yeah – go right ahead

  • @barbara  Jan 2019

    We ku to ourselves
    The sound of one mind counting
    Syllable-oquy

  • @metalfoot  Jan 2019

    Wishing for more time.
    But time is quantized just so.
    Must use what I have.

  • @zecoop  Jan 2019

    Two weeks out, but look
    An Arctic Blast awaits me
    Nice weather for FAWM

  • @toms  Jan 2019

    "To ku" as a verb:
    Thing of linguistic beauty!
    To ku! Tu quoquay!

    Oh, FAWMku, FAWMku...

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    @scottlake: child no more,
    Your FAWMku has grown into
    A force of Nature.

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    Approaching bedtime.
    One FAWMku task left to do.
    Bump it to the top!

  • @fuzzy  Jan 2019

    So, the new FAWMku
    Is off to a running start;
    Keep em coming, folks!

  • @erbaer  Jan 2019

    it is delicious
    and it is good for you, too!

    Frosty cold sunrise
    A new day full of who knows
    FAWM is not far now.

  • @toms  Jan 2019

    Ice delay at work,
    Languorous coffee, breakfast,

    FAWM is a place where
    All your dreams at once become
    Unexpectedly

  • @wyatt  Jan 2019

    Ah; the snow does melt
    February approaches
    And FAWM awakens

  • @chrishope Jan 2019

    They tried to make me
    go to rehab,an I said
    Yes, then left early

  • @barbara  Jan 2019

    Relapse, don't do it
    When you want to go to it
    Relapse, don't do it...

  • @wyatt  Jan 2019

    Got some mem'ry pills
    Can't remember to take them
    Want my money back

  • @tuneslayer2018  Jan 2019

    February comes,
    Bringing the promise of spring
    And fourteen new songs.

  • @adnama17  Jan 2019

    Shortest of the months
    Holiest of all seasons
    Slimy wiggly birth

  • @zecoop  Jan 2019

    Arctic blast coming
    Snowy craptastic weather
    Stay inside and prep

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    Arthritis stalks me:
    Ibuprofen Is My Friend
    But not constantly!

  • @erbaer  Jan 2019

    the cat is inside
    returning from a night out
    the morning shows up

  • @erbaer  Jan 2019

    awaken with breath
    red embers of last night's log
    CPR for stoves

  • @oddbod  Jan 2019

    The rain in Spain stays..

    from Nantucket who’s cock was…
    …ooops! sorry wrong thread

  • @pearlmanhattan  Jan 2019

    Today, new project
    Books in so many boxes
    For the barren shelves

  • @letyourhairdown  Jan 2019

    Tomorrow more snow
    High wind and low temperature
    Northern hemisphere

  • @robynmackenzie  Jan 2019

    @oddbod, continue
    Limericks about roosters
    are poultry to me

  • @oddbod  Jan 2019

    @robynmackenzie
    I'm not partial to chicken
    I find it quite fowl

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    @robynmackenzie ,
    Most FAWMericks are paltry.
    FAWMku, the True Light!

  • @joshlevitre  Jan 2019

    Sitting at my desk
    Reading posts in the forums
    Procrastination

  • @oddbod  Jan 2019

    Procrastination
    (As a wise man once remarked)
    Is the thief of time

  • @pearlmanhattan  Jan 2019

    I, librarian,
    Played in books the whole day long
    I alphbetized.

  • @wyatt  Jan 2019

    Hospitals not fun
    It's just hurry up and wait
    Messed up the whole day

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    These three-line stanzas
    Force us to select our words.
    Bondage? Discipline!

  • @oddbod  Jan 2019

    "Oh bondage up yours"
    As Poly Styrene once sang.
    A punk rock classic

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    Punk was ropey then.
    Later it all fell apart.
    (Safety pin shortage)

  • @wyatt  Jan 2019

    Safety pins may fail
    Cause a wardrobe malfunction
    Oh welll what the heck

  • @zecoop  Jan 2019

    Safety pins can't hold
    My hope up when it's snowing
    But awesome FAWM can...

  • @wyatt  Jan 2019

    Oh let the snow blow
    And let the winter winds howl
    We;re safe inside FAWM

  • @toms  Jan 2019

    The high point of rock
    Bunch of amateurs bashing
    When punk was ropey. πŸ˜€

  • @adnama17  Jan 2019

    Only the ice comes
    In my desert hell. So why
    Is hell cold, damn it!?

  • @pearlmanhattan  Jan 2019

    Has hell froze over?
    Could be one of the reasons
    You cannot get warm....

  • @wyatt  Jan 2019

    Hell has not frozen
    New recruits on the furnace
    An endless supply

  • @fuzzy  Jan 2019

    I just spent the week
    Listening; "Louie Louie".
    So many versions!

    Easy listening,
    Punk, pop, disco, rap, lounge, jazz;
    Sick of that song now.

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    Fleetwood Mac watching,
    I missed all of that decade.
    Too much studying.

    (1969
    I went to sleep. Woke up in
    1981)

  • @fuzzy  Jan 2019

    Which decade for Mac?
    Been around for a long time.
    British blues or pop?

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    British Blues: they ruled.
    Peter Green & band. Oh well.
    Still rule in my heart.

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    Rediscovery:
    The pop version was stunning,
    But no longer Blues.

  • @joshlevitre  Jan 2019

    I once saw an ad
    with a little horse dancing
    to Mac's "Everywhere"

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnjaL...

  • @tuneslayer2018  Jan 2019

    Mid-January
    Fourteen days to go to FAWM
    But hey, who's counting?

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    A-one, a-two, aaand
    One two three four One two three...
    Click tracks are my friends.

  • @wyatt  Jan 2019

    So if winter comes
    Then can spring be far behind
    Yep;seems quite a bit

  • @scubed  Jan 2019

    FAWM's playground beckons
    I may miss recess this time
    Maybe I'll sneak out

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    Canvas stored away
    Two decades and more. But now!
    Fixed the sail cover.

  • @fuzzy  Jan 2019

    Are you a pirate,
    @timfatchen? Sailing the seas
    Looking for booty?

  • @pearlmanhattan  Jan 2019

    Hoist the spinnaker
    Let's Make magic with the wind
    Flying on water

  • @pcob1993  Jan 2019

    I lost my eclectic mojo
    on the narrow road
    to the deep south

  • @wyatt  Jan 2019

    It's sailing; sailing
    Over a musical sea
    February ho

  • @adnama17  Jan 2019

    All work and no play
    Makes Adnama17
    Very f***ing mad

  • @zecoop  Jan 2019

    I'm staying inside
    Lots of white stuff outside - Brrr
    Good thing for guitars!

  • @leepat  Jan 2019

    the case and the suit
    suit the Telecaster just
    fine for a Friday

  • @oddbod  Jan 2019

    But it’s Saturday
    Or should that be STRATurday
    Don’t be ofFendered

  • @leepat  Jan 2019

    Alliteration
    Blurs the lines between the bold
    And the beautiful

  • @toms  Jan 2019

    I'm tele-ing you!
    Straturday is the greatest
    Invention ever!!!!

  • @fuzzy  Jan 2019

    Think and think and think
    Of some ukulele puns....
    Nope, none come to mind. 😞

  • @toms  Jan 2019

    Stringing me along,
    Fuzzy? Promising uke puns
    Cat gut your tongue, eh? πŸ˜€

  • @kahlo2013  Jan 2019

    oh! ukulele
    high strung petite soprano
    play with my heartstrings

  • @fuzzy  Jan 2019

    It's unfortunate;
    The ukulele short form
    "Uke" rhymes well with "puke". 😞

  • @pearlmanhattan  Jan 2019

    There are other words
    Juke, rebuke, coop, coupe, and swoop
    Duke, Nuke, spook, fluke and Luke.

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    A Singer, no song
    Older than me, lost her needle.
    It just goes to sew.

  • @kahlo2013  Jan 2019

    a cleft among staff.....
    lines were drawn, notes were written
    voices crescendoed

  • @kahlo2013  Jan 2019

    sharp words were uttered
    flat expressions were noted
    the end was in sight

  • @wyatt  Jan 2019

    As the days dwindled
    Phoenix Fawn rose from ashes
    And burst into bloom

  • @lake  Jan 2019

    flames of passion leap
    as ashes ignite again
    with creative sparks

  • @barbara  Jan 2019

    Think of it this way:
    We could use an egg carton
    to track FAWM Advent!

  • @pcob1993  Jan 2019

    Desperately wrestling with a rhyme for ukelele
    i did a face-plant in the hors-d'oeuvres

  • @kahlo2013  Jan 2019

    FAWM: over easy
    scrambled, hard boiled, and poached
    one month and I’m fried

  • @kahlo2013  Jan 2019

    poor ukulele
    splattered with turkey gravey
    for the sake of rhyme

  • @fuzzy  Jan 2019

    Uke-playing turkeys
    Invaded my dreams last night,
    Dancing and singing.

  • @kahlo2013  Jan 2019

    collaborative
    ukuleles and drumsticks
    unite and create

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    Do I detect rage,
    Not at the passing of light,
    But at passing ukes?

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    It will irritate!
    I have a new concert uke
    I need to try out.

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    And now it hates me,
    My Christmas Ukulele,
    For abandonment...

  • @kahlo2013  Jan 2019

    ukes are forgiving...
    accepting all mistakes and
    music transgressions

  • @fuzzy  Jan 2019

    They are certainly
    Happy little instruments;
    They love to be played.

  • @scottlake  Jan 2019

    No ukulele,
    A three quarter size guitar
    My axe for this year

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    Guitars worry me.
    I fear the player will be
    A Lizzie Borden

  • @lvgd09  Jan 2019

    Toughening fingers
    I've been playing my guitar
    Are you ready FAWM?

  • @zecoop  Jan 2019

    Temper'ture minus
    1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, ugh
    I'm staying inside

  • @erbaer  Jan 2019

    "no nukes!" was the cry
    from the fray back in the day
    now we say " known ukes!"

  • @kahlo2013  Jan 2019

    guitars say no ukes
    violins shun guitars
    drums don’t give a stick

  • @kahlo2013  Jan 2019

    my flute spring has broke
    some of the notes will not play
    my FAWM is fluteless ☹️

  • @barbara  Jan 2019

    hope springs eternal
    flute springs maybe not so much
    a matter of scale

  • @erbaer  Jan 2019

    ukulele lays
    strewn like a mute useless lute
    no reason to fret

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    Cigarbox untuned
    Should I build one unfretted
    To slide into spring?

  • @wyatt  Jan 2019

    Love the cigar box
    Kind of a primitive sound
    Back to beginnings

  • @erbaer  Jan 2019

    banjo waiting still
    cross between drum and guitar
    outcast of both clans

  • @fuzzy  Jan 2019

    My banjolele
    Is confused; banjo or uke?
    Best of both worlds.

  • @wyatt  Jan 2019

    FAWM is fertile ground
    For innovations and such
    Let it all hang out

  • @barbara  Jan 2019

    Going this Sunday
    to harmonium workshop:
    Will be my first taste.

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    Beware the Nile brand!
    Never know what you may find
    Hiding in the reeds

  • @barbara  Jan 2019

    Not sure what you mean,
    Probably something scaly...
    Cuz hippos can't hide

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    Oh Holy Moses!
    Do you want chapter and verse?!
    ("For today's lesson...")

  • @barbara  Jan 2019

    Sorry, no babies;
    Just a smiling crocodile.
    Think they're connected?

  • @wyatt  Jan 2019

    Barbaly was lost
    The reeds were so thick and tall
    Can she find hr way

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    A crocodile's tears,
    Shed for a meal eaten in
    A tearing hurry...

  • @adnama17  Jan 2019

    Hippos, what's that word???
    Oh! It's TERRIFYING! They,
    Tend to smoosh people.

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    Page two? On Page two??
    No, this must not, shall not be!
    (Far worse than hippos).

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    A child with a garden
    I planted a Hippeastrum
    But no hippos came.

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    The water horse comes!
    Hip, hip, hippopotamus!
    Famous for its song.

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    Be in trouble now,
    That bold hippopotamus.
    #Toxicmalesyndrome.

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    Amazing, the past,
    When it comes to haunt me, at
    The drop of a hat.

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    Gone, Flanders and Swann;
    Left one hundred comic songs--
    The hippo is best.

  • @wyatt  Jan 2019

    Looks snowy again
    I'll send it up to N E
    They are used to it

  • @erbaer  Jan 2019

    Arctic lashes out
    co-opts moisture from the south
    any minute now

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    Fixated by snow,
    For here--One hundred and ten
    Forecast tomorrow.

  • @karan  Jan 2019

    It's nice and cold here!
    I'm still recovering from
    last summer's heat wave.

  • @wyatt  Jan 2019

    Go global warming
    February one sounds good
    So get after it

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    Ice age worries me
    I can live with tropic heat
    And with its lushness.

  • @barbara  Jan 2019

    ice doesn't age well
    in warm ocean bath water
    "salted, on the rocks"

  • @fuzzy  Jan 2019

    Snowing here right now,
    And some freezing rain later.
    Winter has arrived.

  • @pearlmanhattan  Jan 2019

    Rain wind rain wind rain
    4th car crash on same bad curve
    In as many weeks.

  • @oddbod  Jan 2019

    I beg to differ
    @timfatchen The Gnu Song
    Is dafter by far

  • @bradbrubaker  Jan 2019

    Think I'll stay inside
    But I refuse to wear pants
    Pants are the devil

  • @adnama17  Jan 2019

    Pants are optional
    PJs highly encouraged
    Birthday suits are too!

  • @fuzzy  Jan 2019

    "Pants Are The Devil"?
    What an awesome song title!
    Winnie the Pooh style!

  • @wyatt  Jan 2019

    There;s ants in the pats
    And theres bugs in the bloomers
    Bats in the belfry?

  • @toms  Jan 2019

    Yesterday, pipes froze;
    Now, warm biblical deluge.
    Where I live is weird.

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    Soaring temp'rature
    Waiting for the pow'r to die
    That's life in South Oz

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    In these troubled times,
    I can't keep up with the Gnus.
    So sorry, @oddbod .

  • @scottlake  Jan 2019

    Snooze? No. FAWMku? Yes.
    Practicing sleeplessness now.
    February prep.

  • @bradbrubaker  Jan 2019

    On the phone with friend.
    (Like now, while I type this thing.)
    Still checking FAWM site.

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    FAWM phone call method:
    "Yep" tap tap "uh-huh" tap tap...
    It's PRIORITIES!

  • @wyatt  Jan 2019

    As the days dwindle
    Anticipation rises
    Then FAWM will happen

  • @toms  Jan 2019

    I would ask one thing;
    A birthday present, of sorts.
    Some donkey FAWMku. πŸ˜€

  • @barbara  Jan 2019

    scratching on split rails
    grabbing apples with my lips
    huge vocal solo

    though it's not my thing
    for you, I will put it on
    an ass in a hat

  • @fuzzy  Jan 2019

    Capering, joyful,
    A donkey runs through the grass.
    Life is good for him.

  • @fuzzy  Jan 2019

    A gang of donkeys
    Corners the timid human;
    "Hey, got any smokes?"

  • @barbara  Jan 2019

    I can't look away...
    Donkeys on a tightrope walk
    Starting to do flips!

  • @fuzzy  Jan 2019

    Donkeys and donkeys
    And donkeys and more donkeys.
    Are we sick of them?

  • @toms  Jan 2019

    Most sincere and deep
    Are my thanks for these presents!
    And now, Carry on! πŸ˜€

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    We'll keep the donkeys.
    They'll be useful to control
    Hippopotami.

  • @barbara  Jan 2019

    I saw one just now
    submerging into the mud;
    See those brown bubbles?

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    I would rather not.
    Are you aware of the use
    Of those tiny tails?

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    This beats worms hands down!
    And there are more syllables
    And two noun endings!

  • @barbara  Jan 2019

    I haven't a clue.
    I am cringing in advance,
    in case you tell us...

  • @barbara  Jan 2019

    A new syllabus
    in re hippopotamus:
    Regale us with tales!

  • @fuzzy  Jan 2019

    I want to hear how
    @timfatchen explains the use
    Of those tails; it's gross.

  • @barbara  Jan 2019

    Fully in suspense,
    I am resisting Google...
    Distracting siren

  • @erbaer  Jan 2019

    some FAWMer forgot

    If Tim doesn't say
    'Nice' hippos I will ask, in
    Burundi in Oct.

    Couldn't wait; I peeked.
    Intersects with 'girl' rhyme quest:
    Swirl, twirl, and then hurl

    She was quite a girl
    She swirled and she twirled
    Think her name was Merle

    Manure spreaders.
    Hippopotamus tails.
    Manure spreaders.

  • @bradbrubaker  Jan 2019

    Donkeys invaded
    The "Fake Band - A to Z" thread.
    What jackassery.

  • @toms  Jan 2019

    Wallowing in mud,
    Good for your soul and your skin,

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    Hippos are social
    They spread all the sh!t around
    Thereby hangs the tail

    The web's siren call
    So easy to use Google
    When seeking gross-outs

    At the store. She asked me why
    So I can read signs!

    Never mind sunnies!
    To read here without glasses
    It's a peer review.

    Seven syllables.
    But first you gotta do five.
    Five, seven and five.

  • @wyatt  Jan 2019

    What is the count down
    Seems like maybe about five
    Or else thereabouts

  • @toms  Jan 26

    Ow! Ow Owowow!
    Too much "Jan. is practice month"!

    Odd time signatures
    Seem to be all I can play.
    Fours and threes? Boring.

    Are fractions a thing?
    I'd like to see a time sig
    That's irrational! πŸ˜€

    Learned the "Take Five" chords;

    Time hangs heavily,
    Then goes while you're not watching
    Just like a pitch drop.

    (That's not music pitch,
    But solid-looking fluid,
    Such as bitumen.)

    (Knew that, didn't you!
    But I've learnt to play safe and
    Thought I'd better say)

    To FAWM or not

    That is the question

    Hello FAWMily
    How is everyone going??
    Keen to rock and roll?

    Having a snow day
    We have become so cautious

    Onward and upward
    FAWM is now in ascendance
    All will now be well

  • @metalfoot  Jan 29

    So very frigid
    Schools closed; home from work; I shake

    The time has come to

    The music has come

    The challenge is to

    And how fulfilling

  • @timfatchen  Feb 18

    Existential fear:
    Was it The Pink I saw? Or...
    The red mist of rage?

  • @toms  Feb 19

    Through my trifocals,
    Pink refracted, prism-like.
    A spectrum of pain! πŸ˜€

  • @barbara  Feb 19

    Dark side of the moon
    The only place to escape
    Pink pink pink pink pink...

  • @timfatchen  Feb 19

    Barb'ra, you're here too?
    We must stop meeting like this.
    Besides, it's dark here.

  • @karan  Feb 19

    It's dark here as well,
    because it's such a grey day.
    Winter again - meh!

  • @siebass Feb 19

    Groundhog has spoken
    Winter should be ending soon
    If you trust the rat

  • @timfatchen  Feb 19

    Hot days in summer?
    Don't mention the minima!
    It's autumn at night!

  • @timfatchen  Feb 20

    It's my last effort
    Until Mad March comes again.
    The hare apparent.

  • @toms  Feb 20

    We will miss you, Tim!
    Travel safely, come back soon!
    Many FAWMkus more!

  • @karan  Feb 20

    Enjoy your cruise, Tim!
    Maybe you'll pick up more songs
    in the ocean's waves!

  • @barbara  Feb 20

    I will picture you
    Singing to the sea lions
    And sipping something

  • @barbara  Feb 22

    Slipping off the cliff
    at the bottom of page 2...
    are we that fickle?

  • @toms  Feb 22

    The weekend is here!
    Many free hours to play!
    Right? Isn't that true?!

  • @barbara  Feb 23

    I'll be in the swamp
    Okefenokee, that is,
    recording gators!

  • @worm Feb 23

    I'd be proud to be
    an Okie from Fenokee
    were it possible

  • @karan  Feb 23

    Oh, it feels so good
    to concentrate on writing!
    FAWM is sacrosanct!

  • @scottlake  Feb 24

    Thrift shop CD day.
    Sun shining after snow storm.
    My Colorado.

  • @cathymc  Feb 24

    Up late to finish
    The best one I've done so far
    Drums and trancing out

  • @toms  Feb 24

    A big wind's blowing;
    "Snow hurricane," they call it.
    S'no big deal, I hope.

  • @fuzzy  Feb 24

    Getting on a plane
    Early tomorrow morning;
    Hope for good weather.

  • @karan  Feb 24

    Safe journey, @fuzzy!
    And may the winds be gentle -
    don't blow away, @toms!

  • @toms  Feb 24

    The power was out
    For mere moments; an eye blink;
    Keeping fingers crossed!

  • @barbara  Feb 27

    It's just seventeen
    The syllables won't be missed
    See? It's over now!

  • @toms  Feb 27

    Words are the only
    Reality, all else is
    Something else again.

  • @fuzzy  Feb 27

    Words are subjective;
    There is no "reality".
    We all live alone.

  • @barbara  Feb 27

    If Else Then Do Loop
    Words are just so many bits:
    Real to the machines!

  • @pearlmanhattan  Feb 27

    I have FAWM fever
    I mean a fever in FAWM
    ninety-nine point two

  • @scottlake  Feb 27

    Did toms plane land safe?
    Maybe blowin in the wind?
    Or safe on the ground?

  • @fuzzy  Feb 27

    My plane ride was fine;
    I'm in Costa Rica now.
    Goodbye to winter! πŸ˜€

  • @kirjis Feb 27

    Half the month was lost
    February is so short
    Time for just one more

  • @karan  Feb 27

    I'd love to rewind
    the whole month and just start FAWM
    all over again! πŸ˜€

  • @toms  Feb 27

    Only one day left?
    Who doesn't love a challenge?
    Only seven songs to go! πŸ˜€

  • @chrishope Feb 28

    23 hours
    a day to change world or me?
    22 hours (let's see)

  • @barbara  Mar 1

    Even in frenzy
    FAWMku provides a brief perch...
    and then off again

  • @mishykatz  Mar 1

    Now what do I do
    Some time for final fawmku
    Think I'll rhyme it too

  • @mishykatz  Mar 1

    Twenty songs written
    Three more demos to be done
    Satisfying FAWM

  • @toms  Mar 2

    Every year passes
    More quickly than the last. Yep.
    I am a cliche πŸ˜€

  • @barbara  Mar 2

    This might explain it:
    As we collapse toward the sun
    A shrinking orbit?

    Plus, spinning faster,
    Same number of β€˜days’ per β€˜year’
    But over quicker?

    No facts have stopped me,
    My theory is pure play.
    My, how time does fly!

  • @toms  Mar 3

    One thing is certain,
    Collapsing and aging are
    Pretty much the same. πŸ˜€

  • @metalfoot  Mar 3

    FAWMku -- still going?
    I must admit some surprise
    I thought it was done.

  • @fuzzy  Mar 3

    Yes, there's still FAWMku.
    Always is, always will be;
    It is eternal.

  • @toms  Mar 3

    Always going, gone,
    Returning with energy,
    Gone, back, gone, back, gone...

  • @timfatchen  Mar 4

    Back! (No need to run!)
    I regret I could not bring
    The cabin staff home!

  • @timfatchen  Mar 4

    And a bit more done!
    (Hooray for the placemarkers.)
    I will post them soon.

  • @timfatchen  Mar 4

    Legitimate FAWM!
    Just late posting songs and words
    Done before the end.

  • @timfatchen  Mar 4

    No @frogspawn this year.
    Time-machine intimacy
    Self-folded the beast!

  • @timfatchen  Mar 4

    I, the gravedigger.
    Interring FAWMerick's corpse,
    Stamping it well down.

  • @zecoop  Mar 4

    FAWMku for the win
    Fourteen songs? BAH... that's nothing
    Here's three ninety nine!

  • @barbara  Mar 5

    First I eat my lunch
    Then it’s dessert for my ears,
    my mind and my heart!

  • @zecoop  Mar 5

    I have listened and
    Listened and commented and
    soon comes five hundred

  • @timfatchen  Mar 5

    I'm back dieting!
    Too much shipboard good-living!
    Only soul-food now....

  • @barbara  Mar 5

    When the soul is full
    it’s easier to push back
    from the smorgasbord

  • @kahlo2013  Mar 5

    tasty morsels tempt
    tempt and tease saying eat me
    how can I say no?

  • @kahlo2013  Mar 5

    souls always expand
    like hearts they are never full
    there is room for more

  • @timfatchen  Mar 5

    Let's wax lyrical!
    A lyric sends me wobbly.
    Thinks I; "let's set it"

  • @timfatchen  Mar 5

    If I started FAWM
    Reading lyrics-only, then..
    I'd not write my own!

  • @scottlake  Mar 6

    @fuzzy does posit:
    FAWMku is Omnipresent.
    Hmm, quite intriguing.

  • @timfatchen  Mar 6

    So does that make FAWM
    The Present that gives it all?
    How appropriate!

  • @barbara  Mar 6

    Om-Ni, a strange call:
    a deep peace broken off by
    shrubbery cravings?

  • @zecoop  Mar 6

    What times are we in?
    Saying Om-Ni to FAWMers
    Such dark times indeed

  • @timfatchen  Mar 7

    A knightmare indeed!
    Thought I was turning vegan!
    Nah, just a flesh wound!

  • @timfatchen  Mar 7

    O man! I paid, me,
    Humungous heaps of credit
    For my shrubbery!-

  • @zecoop  Mar 7

    Bring out your FAWM dead
    I've still got more songs in me!
    So I'm not dead yet...

  • @toms  Mar 9

    The days may go by
    And we creep toward senescence
    But loud guitars rock.

  • @zecoop  Mar 9

    Turn up the volume
    I love all the glowing tubes
    Crunch, grit, attitude

  • @barbara  Mar 9

    Inverse proportion:
    The shorter the telomere
    The louder the rock

  • @toms  Mar 9

    So, what happens when
    When the telomere is gone?
    Rock and Roll Heaven. πŸ˜€

  • @zecoop  Mar 9

    In Guitar Heaven
    They all play 'Telo" casters
    "Mere" mortals just dream

  • @barbara  Mar 9

    Turn off the telly!
    Cast your telomeres aside!
    Party in the clouds!

  • @timfatchen  Mar 10

    You erudite bunch!
    I had to look up telos.
    I passed genetics?

  • @timfatchen  Mar 10

    Ah, but that was in
    Another country and R.
    A. Fisher is dead...

  • @zecoop  Mar 10

    U R A Fisher?
    Over here it's ice fishing
    But brrrr, not for me

  • @kahlo2013  Mar 10

    telomeres shorten
    memories fade and cells die
    all day and all night

  • @kahlo2013  Mar 10

    the cell cycles run
    tirelessly β€˜til their last
    mitotic exit

  • @timfatchen  Mar 10

    There is no escape,
    For entropy claims its due...
    But in the meantime!

  • @judypie  Mar 10

    What is a haiku?
    I have never written one.
    Google says it’s this?

  • @timfatchen  Mar 10

    @judypie , your song
    Could not be until written
    Now you have done so!

  • @zecoop  Mar 10

    I'd hate to write the
    Music for this haiku song
    Fusion jazz maybe?

  • @toms  Mar 11

    what is the final
    Telos of our telomeres?
    The end is the thing. πŸ˜€

  • @timfatchen  Mar 11

    Both @wobbiewobbit
    And I have musicked FAWMkus.
    Karan went further.

  • @toms  Mar 15

    FAWMku is fading,
    Sadness wells up from within;
    Time to bump it up! πŸ˜€

  • @zecoop  Mar 15

    Blah blah blah blah BLAH
    Blah blah blah BLAH blah blah blah...
    (thanks Alex Lifeson)

  • @barbara  Mar 15

    Feeling a bit blah?
    Hard to put it into words?
    No need: make music!

  • @zecoop  Mar 15

    So many folks here
    Are amazing in their prose
    FAWMku hall of fame!!!!

  • @barbara  Mar 15

    If these are haiku
    Where are the frogs and moonlight?
    No splash; no ripples.

  • @zecoop  Mar 15

    Haiku the forest
    Or, I could Haiku my pants
    Haiku the football?

  • @barbara  Mar 15

    quiet on the field
    suddenly a football snaps--
    sound of pants ripping!

  • @timfatchen  Mar 16

    No, there are no frogs
    For @frogspawn did not appear.
    Why? No-one fed him!

  • @barbara  Mar 16

    We could have fed him
    But it’s always been Pointless
    His dance card was full

  • @chrishope Apr 25

    see you February
    may have learned something by then
    one frog on my card

  • @scottlake  1 week

    A November note
    A tweak to send it upward
    To flutter back down

  • @toms  1 day

    Is it senescence?
    Or the quiet before FAWM?
    The sly, gentle winds...
