Saturday Morning

Daily Observation

Over the river floats a thin haze
A man fishing peaceful is his gaze
Trush and robin sing somewhere in the trees
From the shore sounds a group of geese

The first elderly shoppers appear
On Saturday morning it’s not the young we hear
The young sleep off Friday night
Their night of might

Let slow down the world on Saturday morning
The sun rises sheep are bleating every morning
Sleep or a run in the park on Saturday morning
The sun rises all the same every morning

Capacity for Love

We best show capacity for love

In our treatment of those we don’t love

Prisoners, opponents, aren’t easy to love

Yet treating them with dignity, is love

New Week

A new week of hard work

And lots of fun

Is dawning ~ and always expect some quirk

Even when all seems same under the Sun

Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #160

Welcome to Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge. Each week I will be posting a photo I grab off the internet and challenging bloggers to write a flash fiction piece or a poem inspired by the photo. There are no style or word limits. The photograph below is from GaudiLab at shutterstock.com. For the visually challenged writer, […]

Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #160

In the Morning, I look for information

Hoping for some news, perhaps diversion

What I saw, was beyond expectation

I look forward to futher publication

About this amazing observation

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!

#WeekendThought

There’s no start or end

To the universe

So, the goal is the road — or even its bend

Yet, only a goal makes you nicely traverse

A beautiful, challenging course

@douryeh

The weekend gives me some time to ponder a bit. I thought, why not make it a challenge to other writers? What’s your weekend thought? If you like, you can create a pingback to this posting @}}-
