Weekend Writing Prompt #197 – Call

Check out Sammi’s site: https://sammiscribbles.wordpress.com/2021/02/20/weekend-writing-prompt-197-call/

When you get there

When you arrive
Place a call
Wait for an answer
Wait for the fall
Sit down and ponder
What happens next
Turn off your volume
Send your last text
Sit for a minute
Sweat it all out
Waiting is torture
Its what life’s about

Same, Same, But Different – Saturday Mix, 20 February 2021

To participate click here: https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/19271780/posts/3192033375

Your words are:

  1. change
  2. effect
  3. skip
  4. betray
  5. wonder

Reality

In a world of such diversity

Its hard to explore the aftermath

When time seems to ricochet

Between the past and the future

When all you can do is speculate

How life may mislead you

In the present.

The Cat finds his kite

The Cat in the Hat was somewhere brand new 
he didn’t know who lived there or lived there with who. 
He saw lots of toys and some stuff in the yard 
He tried to look inside, curtains made it hard. 

He thought that he’d knock on the door that’s bright red 
Perhaps they’d know him by the hat on his head 
Most people did know him for what he did wear 
He was famous to most, though he couldn’t care. 

So he walked up the walk and he stood nice and straight 
he walked up the steps and he closed the front gate 
He didn’t want pets that might live there to leave 
Most kids did have pets, or he’d like to believe. 

When all of a sudden from up on the roof 
A balloon went by flying, then popped with a Poof! 
Down to the ground a bright paper did float 
He bent down to get it and saw it’s a note. 

The note it was written in crayon and pen 
Was the writing he noticed from a little boy Ben? 
The note was so sweet that the Cat he did cry 
Ben had an old kite that the Cat used to fly. 

The Cat was so happy to get back his kite 
He smiled so big with his teeth white and bright. 
So Ben lived in this house that he just stopped by 
And now he and Ben watch their kites blow and fly.

Gloomy: Word of the Day Challenge

Our word for today can be found here: https://wordofthedaychallenge.wordpress.com/2021/02/04/gloomy/\

On a sunny bright new day
when your loved one goes away
there may still be some light
if you put up a good fight.

On a gloomy rainy day
when your loved one goes away
some light is hard to find
You feel you’re left behind.

On any normal day
when your loved one goes away
the world seems dark and cold
Think of the love you do behold.

Above the clouds
there used to be
a clouded land
a small city
and in this land
there was a man
who loved his girl
as much’s he can
She knew his love
was true but still
she wanted more
to suit her will
she told him so
and he was sad
she saw him cry
and she felt bad
she talked to him
and told him true
I love you more
my life is you.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “the beginning, the end.” Write about the beginning of something and the end of  something. Bonus points if your first sentence contains “the end” and your last sentence contains “the beginning.” <– Read that again. Have fun! 

Find the rules here: https://lindaghill.com/2021/01/29/the-friday-reminder-for-socs-jusjojan-2021-daily-prompt-jan-30th/

I often find topics ironically fitting for life’s happenings.

Everyone will have their time

The end of the road is now coming
prepared you may be, or maybe not.
there’s no way to stop it or start it
it puts your life right on the spot
to figure what else you must do here
before it’s your time for farewell
Answer the unanswered questions
for there in your mind they still dwell
think of the things left to do here
and all of the things that you’ve done
don’t cry for the ones who are left there
For you a new beginning’s begun.

Three Things Challenge #494

I haven’t been able to participate like usual but today I am making it a priority to get to some writing! To participate in Three Things Challenge go to Di’s page: https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2021/01/30/three-things-challenge-494/

Your three things today are:

MEANING
REGULAR
WORDS

When I think of the meaning
of what we call life
I think of myself
as mother and wife
the regular things that I like to do
like express with my words
and sing a bit too
I often find now
that I don’t have the time
but thinking of blogging
is still so sublime.
