Stream of Conciousness Saturday : The VISionary

This is  part  of  LindaGHill‘s Stream of Conciousness  Saturday  Here is  the pingback.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “vis.”  Use a word, or tie your post’s theme around a word, that contains the letters VIS, in that order. Enjoy!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

I survey  the vista from  my  secret place

Deep into  the  night I hide  silent  and  leaving  no trace.

I have  visions of  war  and  plague  laying  all to  waste.

Activists scream  and  shout  waving  their  banners

They  see  less  than I, collectivists all with no  manners!

 

Whirling like  Dervishes round  and  round

Spinning  so fast  they  become indevisable as  they  hit  the  ground.

Inadvisable  hands  reach out  to  stay  their  fall

Sadly  they  slip  through  invisible  one  and  all.

I bend  to  pick  them up and  lavish care on them

Too late  I  see  the ravishes  of  of life  and  zen.

 

I survey  the vista from  my  secret place

Deep into  the  night I hide  silent  and  leaving  no trace.

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!
