Stream of Conciousness Saturday: fly/flies/flew/flu/flue.

This  is  part  of LindaGHill‘s Stream of Concious Saturday  here is  the pingbak.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “fly/flies/flew/flu/flue.”  Choose one, use ’em all, it’s up to you. Have fun!


Birds love  to fly ,

Oh!  why can’t I

Why  can’t I fly

Like a  bird in the sky!


She clapped  her hands  and  and  away  they  flew

I  am still trapped here wondering what to do!


Here I  am trapped in a  cage

Unable  to fly  caugh up in rage

Like  a man  with  the flu

I don’t  know what  to do.


She clapped  her hands  and  and  away  they  flew

I  am still trapped here wondering what to do!



I wish I could  fly away

Use  my wing’s influence

Up into  the sky  this  day

Escape  from my  enforced  residence !

Here are the rules:

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. Linda will post the prompt  on her 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,  Linda  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 Linda  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 Linda’s post into yours.  Your link will show up in Linda’s 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 Linda’s 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!

    I know how you feel, wanting to fly. I did a sculpture once in college called Flight. It was reaching for the sky, but unable to launch. That was how I felt at the time. I wish you flights of soaring beauty!! I hope your chains fall away.

    Oh yes, to be free of that which holds us prisoner is a wonderful thing to wish for. How could it not be a beautiful essence.

    Very clever, Willow! I wondered if anyone would use the word “flue” inside another word. 😀

    Very tricky Willow – I have to confess I didn’t see that one coming – I had to read it twice to see the italics and get it. I was sure you would say that the bird flew up the flue. We actually had a few birds and a bat come down the flue years ago.

      He he, I shouldn’t laugh but you made me think of when we had a bird come down the chimney. It is a childhood memory but it sticks. My my was not best pleased!! xxxx
