Three things challenge

Your three things today are:


Written for Di at pensitivity101:

Chess Game

Walking along the buttress 

Of her seemingly war proof fortress 

Grace asked her soldiers for much less 

To whisper so that noise was voiceless 

Lest they should feel so useless 

They went off to play the game of chess.

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 10 (SENSE). This week, it’s the D rhyme spot.

I would love to give you a sense of what this challenge is asking, but it is super confusing and I will have to reread it, again…Anyhow, check out the details on Ronovan Writes:

Recalling your day

Today was a day to recall 

The great things of your yesterday 

By watching all things that you say 

Like trying to not drop the ball 

Which could lead to your giant fall. 

So live with your happiness now 

It’s cheaper than buying a cow 

Your senses will help lead the way 

your story just won’t go astray 

Now lay down your cents, wipe your brow.

**I have no idea if this is correct but I believe each line is eight syllables and I used sense in the third to last line and the synonym in the last line**

Tale Weaver – #280 – Tickets – June 18th.

Written for mindlovemiserysmenagerie:

movie tickets

Billy stood outside the glass window, staring up at the stickers showing showtimes and prices. He wasn’t sure he would have enough money for tickets, especially since he wanted to ask Wendy to go with him. If they went to the matinee, they could probably even get popcorn.  

Billy remembered the time his parents’ friends were sitting at his house. They were laughing and bragging about how they see multiple movies in a day because they just scoot from one theater room to the next without anyone noticing. The went on to say that because theaters were only employing one person for the counter and one for keeping an eye on things, they really had no problem and didn’t have to sneak.  

Billy’s dad had looked past the man’s shoulder, catching Billy’s eye. Billy could see the disgust on his face, as he listened to this adult talk so pompously about stealing from the theater. Billy’s mom was shifting in her seat, trying to get a word in, trying to end the conversation. Billy couldn’t believe these adults were so proud of their dishonesty.  

So now, looking up at the shows and the prices, he can see how it might be tempting to stay for a second show, but he would never be able to live with that decision. He was also concerned that Wendy would simply walk away with a dishonest idea like that. It wasn’t worth it. They could just come to the early show and save money that way. It is supposed to be a positive thing to do, why turn it bad?

Welcome to this week’s #writephoto prompt!

This week’s prompt ~ Soar

Wanting to soar

Will the wings of the geese carry me to you? 

Will the clouds in the sky hold me up to see you? 

Will the rain wash away my sorrow? 

Upon the wings of geese, I wish I could soar 

Upon the clouds I wish I could sit and wait for you 

Falling like rain my tears try to wash away sadness.  

For another day will bring sun 

Another day will be void of dark clouds 

And allow the geese to rest before flight.
