Stream Of Conciousness Saturday: Almost But Not Quite

I almost  got it right

I almost  topped  the  bill tonight

Most times  no one notices me at all

Tonight I  shone  tonight  I made  the most  of all!

 

I almost jumped  the moon tonight

Swung from a star almost got it right

Most of  all I excelled , most of  all I flew

Almost caught  your eye, most  of  all I tried, true.

 

 

This  part  of  the Linda G Hill  Stream  of  Consciousness Saturday.

Linda  said : “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “almost.”  Use it however you’d like. Have fun! Here  are  the  rules. 

1. Your post must be a 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,” or “Begin with the word ‘The’.”

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.

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. Have fun!

    Almost? Catch my eye you have, love the imagery as always. Love the painting (is it an original or found online? Makes no difference) as it adds to the poem.
