Stream of Consciousness Saturday

This week LindaGHill of Life in Progress said our Saturday Stream of Consciousness  prompt this week​ is: Yard,”Use it any way you’d like. You can even add letters to it to make a new word! Have fun!”

I see the prompt, Yard, as that last ounce of commitment and effort we all need to make in lives to reach our goal and hit our deadlines.

The last Yard!

It is not the last mile 

That brakes your smile

It is the last but one yard

When the wall hits you hard.

We are all court in the yard

Trying to live life to the full

Doing our best no bull.

Don’t give up make the last two yards


Sons ……….. and Daughters

We  raise  them

We  praise  them

Goodness  knows

That’s  how  it  goes

If  we  don’t no one  will

Do  the  care..good  or  ill

 

I suppose  they do

In their  own way ,true

They’d  miss us if we were not here

Would  they  cry  or  cheer

Would  we  be without  them though?,

What’s  that I  hear, a resounding  NO!

To  all Mums  especially  Sue Vincent

What’s for dinner today?   How I hate hearing that every morning!

if it was up to me I wouldn’t bother!

Don’t get me wrong…I do enjoy cooking. It’s just that I don’t feel the need for meat and three or four veg everyday ,but it has to be served up, on time without fail. it means that no other activities can take place  unless warning has been given in advance.

Then of course those activities are overshadowed with worry about what time I should be back!

I am rationing myself to at least one outing a month sometimes being away for the whole day. Then my husband manages to make himself a meal!!

This week my outing was to London to hear the Brandenburg Choral Society perform Vivaldi’s Gloria and other beautiful pieces at the Temple church, in company of a good friend.

today’s menu?

Chicken in honey and mustard…

Thursday Photo Prompt, #writephoto, Child,

When Rachel awoke two days later she was destraugt to learn of her loss. So deep was her pain and grief that Lisa feared she would loose her.

Slowly Rachel responded to Lisa’s kindness and took food and water. To Lisa’s surprised Rachel refused to morph in to a human and remained wolf. 

After a week she was strong again and told Lisa she was leaving.  Lisa asked her to stay but Rachel said she had to find  Mathew.

Lisa, reading Rachel’s thoughts could tell that Hope was upsetting her, a constant reminder of her loss.

So Rachel bid Lisa and Hope a loving farewell and promised to return as soon as she could.

Left alone Lisa got out the toys she readied for her child. Beautiful things she had collected over the years some in payment for her healing ways from the villagers and some from her childhood.

Rachel set of to West in search of her lover, her loss raw and gnawing. 

Lisa could feel the need in Hope to learn and fast. 

She showed the child what she had gathered. The Rocking Horse, the dolls in the cradle, the dolls house..

The 10 day old infant smiled. Telepathically Lisa heard Hope say “teach me your ways read to me from your magic books.”

Lisa smiled and did as Hope asked.

For the poor warchild to cope

Shed a tear for peace.

Why, hands held to sky

Tears shed from inocent eyes

Warchild prays for peace.
