Engrossed in the ocean of blues, I try to satiate and fit in its monochrome While counting every ounce of it, Turning and reciting every page of it, I quite forget there can be a shore on the other side of the blues. Where the ocean ends, the land of emotional melange begins
I forget, instead of weighing every bit of it Instead of feeling every shade of it, I could move on and escape To a land of colours- of healthy emotional roller coaster.
The word that I invented is 'Raineroma' . Raineroma is a blend of rain, earth and aroma. It denotes the perfume that the earth generates when she gets soaked in rain after a long time. It is a word of happiness, gratefulness, contentment and pleasant aura.

A big hello to all of you majestic Mirakeeans out there! Hope everybody's feelin' good! Hopefully ready for a challenge too! 'Cause here it comes! Woot!!
This is a phrase prompt challenge, meaning that you will create a piece in which you incorporate the mandatory phrase provided.
CHALLENGE PHRASE: 10 feet tall and bulletproof. -Credited to Travis Tritt
MEANING: The challenge phrase denotes a heightened or overly inflated sense of self, i.e., the ego. In other words, if you feel '10 feet tall and bulletproof,' you're feelin' mighty darn good. Although you might want to take it down a notch and quit bein' so highfalutin!
I wrote my challenge piece (on my main account) as a lyrical rewrite of the original song by Travis Tritt. To get a point across, I state throughout the song that I'm NOT 10 feet tall or bulletproof.' So it's the opposite of the phrase's intended meaning.
SUPER DUPER IMPORTANT: Please be sure to credit Travis Tritt for the words '10 feet tall and bulletproof,' as they belong solely to him.

thin sliver of the crescent moon high up the real world'
- Robert Kelly
The lune is also known as the American Haiku. It was first created by the poet Robert Kelly. After much experimentation, he settled on a 13-syllable, self-contained poem that has 5 syllables in the first line, 3 syllables in the second line and 5 syllable in the final line.
Unlike haiku, there are no other rules. No need for a cutting word. Rhymes are fine; subject matter is open. While there are less syllables to use, this form has a little more freedom.
For today's challenge, you need to invent a word of your own making that doesn't currently exist anywhere except in your own mind. BE SURE TO PUT YOUR WORD AND ITS MEANING IN YOUR CAPTION, and let us know whether it's a noun, adjective, verb, etc. Using your newly invented word, write an original piece of 25 lines or less.
