Word of the Day

Kristian is the host: https://wordofthedaychallenge.wordpress.com/author/talesfromthemindofkristian/

The Word of the Day is Sketches, I hope this word inspires you to write a story or a poem.

Sketches are the images
of art inside the mind
they come in different colors
in shapes of many kinds.
We often never see it
the shape we mean to make
but stress is often released
in a messy sort of take
sometimes they are done neat
and beauty is sincere
but other times we doodle
when a pen with paper’s near.

Three Things Challenge

Hosted by Di at pensitivity101

Your three words today are:

Before I was able to think about writing I saw the word “kiln” and thought I would share my first pieces of pottery from the class David bought me for my birthday. Not great but I am happy with them. It’s hard to really capture the colors since I’m not setting up any fancy photoshoot!

I am not keen on the color design I used on the “ashtray-looking” piece. I didn’t know that how it would look when it was finally out of the kiln. If I leave it outdoors it will eventually grow some sort of algae that looks like kelp. I just haven’t decided where to put it. Maybe even a coaster for under a plant.

When I saw this prompt on Bushboy’s blog I knew I had the perfect picture for today’s word.

On my walk I noticed a tinge of color I knew I had to capture.

Three Things Challenge #843

Hosted by Di! https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2022/01/14/three-things-challenge-843/

Your final three words for this week are:


Once upon a time I existed
in a world where there never saw pain
but now in the life that I’m living
I refuse to live life feeling vain
Instead I love the world all around me
I enter with a curious mind
Life can expire so quickly
I enjoy every last minute I find.

Three Things Challenge #841

Di is the host of Three Things!

Your three words today are:

It wasn’t anything
newer than before
my cousin just arrived
standing at my door
she had a magic bag
that hung from up her arm
she crafted it with fabric
some string and then some yarn
she said she needed help
a place for her to crash
her husband kicked her out
it was her nasty rash.

Your final three words for this week are:

Yeah, Right!

In a perfect universe
where everything is fair
the taxes for the poor
aren’t even barely there
the sweet signs of success
are shown in happy grins
cause money doesn’t matter
when there’s free stuff in the bins.

Three Things Challenge #833

This challenge is hosted by Di!

Your three words today are:

I may speak quite loud,
but be certain won’t jeer,
come a bit closer
I’ll whisper’n your ear
you may be too tired
I may not be heard
the kettle is screaming
the noise is absurd
Come right beside me
to hear my fine thought,
lemons are sour
sugar is not!”
