Birdcage Walk.

No one noticed the eggs arrival.They incubated on their own. The chicks were put in cages and hung between the buildings. The birds thrived growing to huge proportions. People came from all over to see them. They renamed the road Birdcage Walk. Then one day the cages were empty.

Game

Pastime

interest

Engaging fun

Diverting obsessed

All Consuming passion

Spinning the big wheel of time

The opposite of employment

Fiddling with the knobs, in your free time.

Be it craft or an obsession, it’s dark.

Guess That Art II! Mr. Potato Head meets Annie Lane.

Ronovanwrite’s has given us the Pablo Picasso painting to think about. Then he’d like us to write a poem of how we see it. The painting is Gurnica. Painted in 1937 it is a very grafic portrayal of war.

Guess That Art 2 image

Death laughs

This is a war of two halves

Slaughter house rules

Mutilation carried out by fools.

Women and children first

Come on big man do your worst.

Then let’s take innocent animals out.

They are just sport no doubt.

The death wheel will do another turn.

We will we choke on fumes as bodies burn.

It’s the war mill and we are the grist.

We are just humans and the lord is pissed.

Too blind to see strife

Narrow minded, ears covered

Gagged, there are four apes.

His mouth cavernous

His fingers like birds Twitter

So Narrow minded.

Song Lyric Sunday. 100 Years.

Due to being really busy last weekend I missed out on doing Song Lyric Sunday. My apologies to Jim and Everyone at NewEpicAuthor I am back now 🌹

This week the prompt is Minutes/Hours/Days/Weeks/Months, which was suggested by Felicia Denise.

Well I am going a little off piste with this one. I have used this song before, I am sure I have. It is about the passage of time. It a beautiful song about a young man’s life from fifteen to one hundred, it’s called 100 Hundred Years, mind you if it’s fifteen to a hundred it should be called eighty five years.

Okay I am joking it’s a lovely song , always makes me cry. I hope you all enjoy it. It is by Five For Fighting .

100 Years.

I’m 15 for a moment
Caught in between 10 and 20
And I’m just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are
I’m 22 for a moment
And she feels better than ever
And we’re on fire
Making our way back from Mars
15 there’s still time for you
Time to buy and time to lose
15, there’s never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live
I’m 33 for a moment
Still the man, but you see I’m a ‘they
A kid on the way, babe
A family on my mind
I’m 45 for a moment
The sea is high
And I’m heading into a crisis
Chasing the years of my life
15 there’s still time for you
Time to buy and time to lose yourself
Within a morning star
15 I’m all right with you
15, there’s never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live
Half time goes by
Suddenly you’re wise
Another blink of an eye
67 is gone
The sun is getting high
We’re moving on
I’m 99 for a moment
Dying for just another moment
And I’m just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are
15 there’s still time for you
22 I feel her too
33 you’re on your way
Every day’s a new day
15 there’s still time for you
Time to buy and time to choose
Hey 15, there’s never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live

Weekend Music Share: First.

Hi I was just over at Hugh’s News and Views and saw he was taking part in Weekend Music Share . Hugh says Erika Kind gave him the inspiration for this music share prompt. We are all welcome to join in and use the tags ‘Weekend Music Share’ banner in your post and use the hashtag #WeekendMusicShare .

The very first record I bought with my own money. ( and I do mean record it was a 45″ vinyl ) was in June 1963. I was about 10yrs old and I had saved up for months. I think, no I am sure it was 6 shillings and 8 pennies in old money which is circa 34pence in today’s money .

The shop I bought it from was an old corner shop halfway between my home and my school…… well it was if you took a slight detour! I went in every day for a fortnight to see if the record had arrived. I went in three days running to make sure the owner was saving me a copy because I could not buy it until I had that week’s pocket money. He must of got really fed up with me.

Anyway when I did finally get my hands on my copy of it I rushed home to play it on our old Dansette record player ( well my sister’s and brother’s had been using it to death before me). I played it and played it on repeat until Mum and Dad asked me to STOP!

So here it is my first ever record purchase, Come On by The Rolling Stone’s , written by Chuck Berry.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS March 23/19

Our Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “the last piece of mail you received.” Talk about the subject of the last piece of physical mail you received, i.e. a gas bill–talk about gas, not the bill itself. Have fun.

Well this post has been a complete disaster! I posted it and somehow deleted it ! Eight people looked at it and it got three likes. ….All lost now.

Now I have to start again and to be honest I thought it was one of the most boring posts I have ever written. Anyhow as this is #SoCs I suppose I had better try and write it again.

The last real letter I received through the letter box was about an ISA.

What is an ISA :

An ISA is an Individual Savings Account It works like a normal savings account, except you don’t pay any UK income or capital gains tax.

How many types of ISA are there?

There are six main types of Isa:

  • Cash
  • Stocks and shares
  • Innovative finance
  • Junior
  • Help to Buy
  • Lifetime

Well there is a lot more I could ramble on about..

Plenty but I am stopping now because this post is so incredibly boring ! Are any of you still awake, I am not.

So let’s end this load of stupid tosh with an Acrostic Haiku.

Image below from Pixabay.

I invest today

Saving now for the future

Always plan forward.

******

Well it’s not a patch on the first Haiku I wrote but I can’t remember what I wrote.

This piece of rambling stupidity was written for LindaGHill‘s #SoCs.

Random Act of Kindness.

Ronovanwrite’s has come up with a beautiful idea for a Thursday Post. He would like us to think about what Kindness means to us. What do we see as real kindness. Now I did not see his prompt until late this evening but I have thought and remembered this post. It is about how a complete stranger helped my brother and his daughter out. Thank you Ronovan for this lovely idea. He has name it Kindness is my Comfort Zone.

As I mentioned on my SoCs post today I was at my niece’s wedding in Brighton yesterday. It was a beautiful day and it was wonderful to have all the family there.

Now my brother the father of the bride told me a lovely true story.

Everyone had left for the registry office leaving my brother and his daughter to wait for their taxi. The taxi had been order and so all they to do was wait for it.

Unbeknown to my brother the

Taxi firm he had used to take him and his daughter to the wedding, computers had crashed. They were just one of 140 people waiting for a taxi that was not comming. The drivers were in the dark. My brother and niece were not in a good place either.

Well my niece was getting stressed as were the bride’s maids not to mention my brother.

Then…

Beware the sleeping Dragon

Can

you see

him there his

Head finely carved.

Eyes fixed in a stare.

Don’t walk upon his back

Be respectful and have care

For millennia he’s slept there

Resting, gathering strength he awaits

Merlin’s call to help save us from our fate.

We

Do not

See him there

We choose not too

Dragons are not real

Ever denying truth

We do not believe enough

Yet the Dragon believes in us.

Storing his strength to be ready

For the call he will rise when all else falls.
