              Vlad’s weakness!

Sweet our Vlad is not

Yet he succumbs to the scent 

Of the maid’s bouquet..

Even in decay

Beauty and sweet sent remain

In death, still beauty.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday : Hot and Cold. A day late! 

This week LindaGHill has given us hot and cold as our #SoCs prompt.

Rules and Pingback Here

Hot and cold running water used to be a luxury, back in the days when not everyone had good plumbing it was a sign that you were a cut above the rest.

When people use the term to blow hot and cold it means that someone is very hard to predict. Their mood is very changeable and unpredictable.

Personally I find people who blow hot and cold irritating. I hate never knowing the way people will react. One minute I am bumbling along happily the next minute I am in the dog house! It’s no way to live. 

Hot and cold two opposite ends of the scale.

          Hot and cold a Tanka



Unpredictable

Blowing hot and cold you leave

Me hurt and frozen.

Like hot and cold pipes frozen

That burst after a quick thaw.

Thursday Photo Prompt, Flow.

This week’s #writephoto, Thursday photo prompt, from Sue Vincent of Daily Echo is entitled flow.

“Stay” were the last words her master had said.

Stay she did until sadly she was dead.

Long days and nights she waited in turn.

Lovingly waiting her master’s return.
Mother Nature took pity on her

Decided her decay she would defer.

Gently covering her features with grass and moss.

Nature tried to ease her death and her loss.
The river passed her everyday

The waterfall sings to her while at play.

Pleople come to visit her from far and near.

They pat her head and stroke her ear.
Meanwhile  from up above 

She sits with her master, her love.

In death they are united

They have eachother at last reunited.

Rules and Pingback Here

Believe it or not I was that weird kid at school. The one always skulking around at the back of the class, hiding in the loos to escape being badgered. Never willingly picked for any team game  or club. Laughed at poked . Well I grew up I wonder if they did?
