Writing 201: Poetry, Day ten – Pleasure

Thanks for this great two creative weeks,  for great word prompts and writing styles!
I really enjoyed each day though some seemed to be more difficult than the other one.
For the last word prompt Pleasure I decided to write a Sonnet about my husband’s favorite hobby which is Chess. It is a great Pleasure to see him play and enjoy it, it is his Pleasure to teach anybody who is interested in and it’s a Pleasure to win a good game after hours calculating, thinking and sweating.

* Dedicated to my beloved husband ❤ *

Black and white battlefied
created by sixty-four squares.
Black and white army is ready to start
the mind and strategy game.

The Queen is always defending her King,
ready to fight, to die for him.
The hot blooded Knight jumped out of the line,
Bishop is attacking an undefended Pawn.

Capture and Castle – the King is safe!
What will be the next move, what is the next step?
Thinking and counting – ‘Yes, discovered check!’

There is no step forward, no step back.
What an aggressive opponent!
This battle is coming to its end – it’s checkmate.

  1. You brought the players to life!

  2. That was a great tribute to your husband. ☺

    • Well it’s 11pm and still practicing with his best friend ☺ wants to win the tournament for me 😊 so I am here doing some crochet

      • He’s dedicated! Does he ever let you win? And I am curious, what are you crocheting?

      • No, I newer won, he is a very good player and wanted me to teach more but… ☺ every time he started to explain me some things I got sleepy 😀 … actually I am crocheting a doily, it is a white – brown flower shaped round doily. I will take a pic when it’s done and post on WordPress as I use to do. You can find some of my projects in the Handwork section on my blog.

      • Excellent! I shall check them out. And don’t worry, my hubby would never let me win either, if I had the patience to learn 😊

      • Here’s a post you should check out
        ‘I knit so I don’t kill people’ . If you like doilies, it might interest you ☺

      • interesting ☺ and I like the Vojna collection though it is a “sad project “… thanks for sharing

      • Your welcome ☺Glad you enjoyed it. And I agree, it is a sad project.
