Stream of Consciousness Saturday: Dew, Due,Do.

This week our Linda of Life in progress is out signing books. So Dan Action of  NoFacilities  is standing in for her.

#SoCs

Now Dan’s prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “do/dew/due”. Use one, use two or use all three. If you start and end with two of them, you get bonus points. If you use all three AND start and end with two of them, you get Linda’s bonus points plus, I’ll match hers – from me to you. And, lest we all forget – Enjoy!

Do dewprops adorn

I went to an ATM for cash another day and the machine was out of order.

You can join in both challengs I have enclosed the links above. So thanks to Colleen and Jane here is my effort.

Sue Vincent’s Thursday Photo Prompt: Signs

This week’s prompt from Sue Vincent of Daily Echo  is Signs.

I wrote a Tanka then reversed the verse  which though no longer a Tanka still flow and made sense… I hope. 

The reverse idea comes from micketalbot

Then on green felt ‘proudly’ hung?

Killed by man alone

Why display this in your home

A sign man still has to grow.
