FOWC with Fandango — Idiom

Click here

An idiom is a phrase, saying, or a group of words with a metaphorical (not literal) meaning, which has become accepted in common usage. An idiom’s symbolic sense is quite different from the literal meaning or definition of the words of which it is made.

Okay, I’m not going to beat around the bush here. I’m going to bite the bullet and just write. I know most of my blog followers won’t cut me any slack so I want to make it good.

What you might say
when he saunters your way
and your skin starts to crawl
and you wish you were small
enough to just shrink
but you’ve no time to think.

Well, I’m going to call it a night. I didn’t try to cut any corners even though I am a little under the weather, so I take this weight off my shoulders and say “goodnight”!

Burn: Ragtag Daily Prompt

Find the prompt here: https://ragtagcommunity.wordpress.com/2021/06/18/rdp-friday-burn/

When the sun goes down
and the lights turn on
When the fog rolls in
and it settles upon
the surface we live on
the place where we grow
the place we will wither
and burn and then go
where it will be the time
to turn fast and run
for your life will be over
and your existence is done.

Friend: Ragtag Daily Prompt

Find the word here: https://ragtagcommunity.wordpress.com/2021/05/30/rdp-sunday-friend/

All along our lives we go
with friends and pets and people we know
but have we thought about the rest?
the people whom we don’t know the best?

From pain of sickness to that of sorrow
I know I will still have tomorrow
and finding new relations to toast
reminding ourselves it’s not right to boast.

Transitory: FOWC with Fandango

Find the word here: https://fivedotoh.com/2021/05/30/fowc-with-fandango-transitory/

Definition of transitory

1: of brief duration TEMPORARY the transitory nature of earthly joy 2: tending to pass away not persistent

Upon this day I ponder
the ways of my life and
the paths I have taken
so that it may leave me
with a reflection of where
I will return to in my transitory state
to find peace and solace in the familiar.

Three things Challenge #566

Welcome to The Three Things Challenge. https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2021/04/12/three-things-challenge-566/

Your three things today are:

ABIDE
INCH
LEAF

To abide by the rules
is an important point
Like a leaf from a plant
in the fall.
Should that leaf decide to
stay intact when it ought
to fall
Then fall in Spring
The essence of nature
peters within an inch of
it’s normal existence
making people wonder
what is next.

Going Home

Brenda looked at the computer screen but didn’t read one word. It had been two months since she had been back in her home. Due to unforeseen circumstances she had been forced to move out of her house, leaving behind her partner, animals, and all belongings. Now she sits and wonders when she will get any amount of normalcy back.

Brenda’s sister Catherine is completely complacent when it comes to the situation, making it so hard for Brenda to even talk to her. Catherine is a local so this new lifestyle has not affected her life like it did Brenda’s. When Brenda is upset and missing her home, Catherine acts like she is over-reacting and acting like a baby. When Brenda tries to explain it to her sister, Catherine just rolls her eyes and says she can’t understand what the problem is.

Some day, hopefully soon, Brenda will be able to go home and be with the people who love her the most. Until then she puts a smile on her face and moves through the days, doing what is needed and expected of her.

Writing Class

Whether a shirt or pants or shoe

A note, a letter, even a clue

A word in English class is here

An article full of meaning clear

Do you know what word I mean?

Can it be a sight unseen? 

A thing to know when writing well

For me the word came quick but fell.

RDP-SUNDAY- BLANKET

FInd the info here: https://ragtagcommunity.wordpress.com/2021/03/07/rdp-sunday-blanket/

Waiting

Like a blanket of snow

Laying upon the frozen ground

During the early morning 

No movement nor a sound

Asleep for time unknown

Beneath a frosty sheath

Waiting for the spring

The life waits underneath.
