Bre’s eighth birthday bash was smashing:
Crepe streamers waved and twirled high above
A festive array of bright hats and marbled party blowers.
Giant beach ball Pinata was hit and came crashing.
Young girls sang loudly with Bre’s karaoke gift.
Bieber surprised her on Skype!
…While dad and brother were a-bout foils in the backyard.

I first read about the poetry form called Sevenling* in a post last month by Grace at everyday amazing and have been anxious to try it.
The image above, Red Spot II, by Wallisy Kandinsky, is the prompt at Magpie Tales this week. I am also linking this for Flash Fiction 55.
*Poetry form: Sevenling - a poetry form of 7 lines. The first three lines should contain an element of three - three connected or contrasting statements, or a list of three details, names or possibilities. This can take up all of the three lines or be contained anywhere within them. Then, lines four to six should similarly contain an element of three, connected directly or indirectly or not at all. The seventh line should act as a narrative summary or punchline or as an unusual juxtaposition.
