#343 of #365 A Prompt A Day For Bee & #frapalymo prompt 10. May 2015 ~ Huchen

I read @FrauPaulchen’s post this morning and wanted to translate it in my break at work but alas not everything works out as it was planned. Never mind.

So today it will be interesting because we’ll get a little fishy ;-):

( you can find the original German post here)

after so much wonderful everyday heroism we are moving on to more awards but we’ll wander into the animal kingdom. 

the prompt for the #frapalymo-poem on 10. May 2015 is: “fish of the year 2015: the huchen.” would be nice, if you wouldn’t know what a huchen is either but you can find out here (there is a link in the german post to the german angler society which gave this fish an “award” but there is no english translation and my abilties do not stretch that far. I hope the wikipedia link will do. There is a sentence in the German post which leads to the german wikipedia link but I left this out here). what might inspire you with the topic “huchen” or if you’ll find entirely different ideas is of course again up to you. i am curious to find out about the huchen-interpretations (and will probably never forget this fish).

and the small print: please let me know via email or Twitter, if you take part. then i can post the link to your blog/poem on Twitter. or post the link in the comments under the daily prompt post on my blog. hashtag for Twitter is #frapalymo and I am @FrauPaulchen.

Suggestions for taking part in the English version of #frapalymo

 
1. read translation of @FrauPaulchen’s prompt here on Bee’s blog
2. write your English (German if you can/want to) poem on your blog and tag it with “English #frapalymo”
3. use the “English #frapalymo” picture if you want to
4. set a link to the translated prompt here on Bee’s blog
5. visit other links posted here and if you want to/can those posted with the hashtag #fapalymo on Twitter
6. The Bee will post your link to the German #frapalymo and translate for you if you want to
 
It already has become a multi-country/language project! Thanks!!!!!
