The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS June 6/2020

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “fan.” Use it by itself or find a word that starts or ends with it. Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Before I go further I want to recall a little boy. For anyone reading this who worked with me know and remember Bobby. Bobby had a fan fetish. He knew every kind of fan, oscillating, stand, window, you name it. He was cute.

fan fixin’ man

When it’s hot  
and you need a break 
use a fan 
not a rake 
it has to spin 
to make the wind 
If it stops 
it might be pinned 
by a piece 
of broken fan 
then you bring it  
to the fan fixin’ man.

Three Things Challenge

For Di at pensitivity101:

Your three things today are:


a walk in the park

While walking slow into the park 

Feeling the wave of some fresh clean air 

It was starting to get a bit dark 

My neck had standing up hair. 

I didn’t know why I did feel 

Like someone was there watching me 

All that I know is it’s peaceful 

Almost like water being pumped out to sea.
