A Name A Day: Salvatore

 
Feel free to participate in A Name A Day. Write a story, poem, or something about a real individual you know with the name of the day. If you have a name that you would like for the blog please send me a message. Please keep it all positive.  

This is part of my positivity plan. Allowing others to see their names in print and then stories or poems that are positive about them is reinforcing to adults and children. This is my first time hosting a “challenge” so if you have pointers or need to tell me how to do something differently, please do, I don’t take offense to creative feedback.  

Enjoy this! I will post a few random names until people choose to participate and give some names. I will continue as long as people would like to participate. I believe it will be nice for any blogger to share with a friend or family member poems “about them” from so many talented writers. Enjoy! 

Animals and I: a ballad (poem)

When we go to see the beasts 
we know that it is great.  
Being near the local zoo  
you’re sure to take the bait.  

They come in many sizes 
colors, shades and hues. 
But did you know they listen 
when people sing the blues? 

How do I know this fact 
so clear about the cutest beasts? 
Because I spend all my time, 
my zoo card is well greased.  

I stay for hours at a time 
and never want to leave. 
I talk to them and they know what 
I’m saying, I believe.  

I have a special bond with them 
this I know is true 
because the animals look my way,  
leaving makes them blue.  

So I try and come each day 
to treat them to my mind. 
The peace and pure tranquility 
help me, I do find.

What is a ballad? A ballad is a form of narrative verse that follows the ABCB pattern quatrain, but has many different “rules” or “options” based on the site or person explaining it to you. In addition, it typically has a consistent meter through each quatrain.

The Sunday Whirl: Wordle 433

Girl on fire

There she is lecturing me, like my life is a story that she cannot stomach, and I listen, trying to choke down the last few bites of my pasta. She apparently always has to feel like filling the space with talk, even though I try to enjoy the people watching. My hunger had been satiated bites ago but I am unsure of what we will do when the meal is done. I really should draw the line with her and tell her I am not open to this type of lecturing. On what grounds does she have to judge me and tell me how to live? She acts like her life is free of all sin. I would love to fly out of here on the broom she makes me feel like I have, that or jump from this high-rise window! I am not mean, not a witch at all, just a girl on fire, wanting to move ahead in this world!

Three Line Tales Week 201

As she sat near the tracks, waiting for the gush of wind from the coming train, she wondered if people before her had sat in this same spot, waiting for the same gush of wind. She knew she would have to move quickly, once she heard the train approach, but for now she enjoyed the freedom to sit and wait. As the moment ticked on she started to feel the rumble of the coming train and started to hear the scraping of the metal wheels along the metal rails, and she began to wonder what it would be like to not move, to not worry about another day, to see the people before her.
