Waking up to a beam of sunlight warming your skin chilled by the damp night air that had settled. Hearing the birds chirping, singing sweet songs, no words, just beauty in the sound. Planning the day, thinking of friends, loving life as is.
Finding the beauty Knowing simple things are rare Within and without.
**The following poem is based on real events from last night**
Frog Life Hell
At precisely three am, I heard the blasted sound croaking in my pool, my mind goes spinning ’round How did they get back here? I didn’t ask them back. But apparently my pool is the omphalos of their pack.
I raced right out the door, the ground coffee in my hand Ready to fight the frogs off, ready to take my stand With a flicker of the pool lights And a switch on at the pump It would not take them long to see they had better start to jump
Don’t dress for me In underclothes That show your skin Head to your toes So I can see What you do hide On the in And outside Be provocative With someone new This lonely sole Is overdue For personal And life long dreams I know you know What I mean So I bid goodbye I am no fool Find yourself someone new
Capricious am I I zoom through the store Needing nothing Needing more Finding an aisle So many clues Looking for clothing My next pair of shoes Gadgets and gizmos Just nothing that’s broke You should see my closet This isn’t a joke Nothing I need No money to pay I’ll be back Some other day
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
Sammi Cox is our host for the Weekend Writing Prompt and today has chosen the word Gallivant. We have 46 words to play with which are to include the prompt.
Did your mother ever tell you to stop gallivanting around town, that it made you look cheap or even worse, desperate? Well, times have changed and now with COVID-19 the only thing to do, besides eat at outside tables, is to gallivant through town holding a sign, protesting the unfair treatment by some police.
