Russian Winter

France & Germany destroyed themselves

In Russia’s Winter — USA, Britain,

And other foolish nations — what gain

You think you get, suffering with wolves

Czechoslowakia was not Ukraine

Ukraine, Donbass, Russia need a platform

To work out a satisfactory map & form

Without looking at Russia in disdain

African Proverb

‘It takes a village to raise a child’

We should, at least thrice in our life,

Help a youngster or child,

Without return favor, to advance their life

Let Go

Letting go is like waving goodbye

To a leaving ship

You don’t know if it’s a permanent goodbye

You do know, another dock awaits this ship

This is my reply to Linda Hill’s prompt ‘Let Go’. If you want to join in, here are the rules:

Here are the rules for SoCS, Stream of Conscious Saturday:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.

3. There will be a prompt every week. I will post the prompt here on my blog on Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” “Begin with the word ‘The’,” or simply a single word to get your started.

4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours.  Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top. NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, such as Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read everyone’s! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later, or go to the previous week, by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find right below the “Like” button on my post.

6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!

7. As a suggestion, tag your post “SoCS” and/or “#SoCS” for more exposure and more views.

8. Have fun!

Another War?

So wrong that USA apparently

Wants to barge into Ukraine or Russia

Boris Johnson wants to join, we see

Europe should be discussion area

Or, offer such platform, in neutrality

Lucid Dream

We young adults were a circus group

The elders were on holiday

A tall man, a bit older than us,

Invited himself to the group

He started off okay,

Then started to terrorize us

He killed already one of our group

So, we tried staying clear off his way

Then, he tried a constructive role to us

He suggested ideas for the group

And its festive season opening day,

To an unconspicuous lady unknown to us;

Then he reappeared & talked to the group

I was his only opponent able to downplay

This man — I could fly; spit fire; thus,

I did what I could to defend the group

His face started to melt, deform like soft clay

Then, I woke up, thus saving our circus 🙂💛

— Or, imposing myself on our group?
