“Come on, we’re late! Cutting across the cemetery will save twenty minutes. I know it’s almost dark but I am more afraid of Mum than the dead.” James said jumping over the wall. “No” shouted Paul. James was home in 15 mins. Paul however was never seen again.

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 151 #SynonymsOnly

Pale her
Skin, so dark
Her eyes. Blood red
Her lips. She watch him
From afar, yearning to
Hold him close and inter him
Within sweet, damp earth enfold him
With her roots. Excervate around his
Soul to take him whole, entomb, bury him.
Went about
His life unaware
Of her Vampire eyes
Watching and waiting to
Catch him unaware, his life
To sap . His body to cover
And wrap deeply making him hers.
Underneath entombed hers to keep always.

As part of her, Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge this week Colleen has given us the two prompt and words. Dig and Grave using synonyms only. Or as it’s Halloween we could write Halloween story no synonyms needed for that option. I chose to write a double Etheree as a Halloween story too.

A Little Practice.

Here is  a little practice  trying something new
I really hope this looks like verse for you.
It is looking good her in editing
But will it stay so when publishing
I really do not know
So I will press publish. Here we go!

What is a heading ? This is!

Oh! Look I have colour too
Is there no end to what I can do?

Bold and Italic whoopdedo!

Look at this

writing and and image together what bliss.

Now I think I am making progress

I hope I have not lost your interest.

Somehow I lost have of this post when I published so I hope it’s all here now , fingers crossed .

Weekly Song Challenge, Week 36!

Time again for Laura’s weekly song challenge!

Copy rules and add to your own post, pinging back to this post.

The Rules

Post music videos for your answers to the musical questions.
Tag two people to participate

The Songs

Post a song that is a satire of a hit song. I really love Star Wars that I used to know by by TeddyFilms. It’s a parody of Somebody that I used to know by Gotye.

Post a song that you love by an artist that was not one of their biggest hits. Lady Jane by the Rolling Stones. I was so upset when Brian Jones died.

Post a song from a T.V show or a Film. WunderKind by Alanis Morissette. From the film Nania.

It is your turn now.

You’re tagged if you want to be. Let’s see what you come up with!

Dream time

What did I do?


Now what can I say
Did we all get given Gutenberg today
Or have I pressed a little button
And lost my classic of a sudden.

So here I am struggling blind
With no idea how to rewind.
Every post is a new challenge
With new things coming at me like a phallenge!

Luckily I read articles by uncle Hugh
And aunty Colleen on what to do.
Oh! I should of taken their advice
To practice, this struggling is not nice.

Well I only have my self to blame
For being stuck in this catch up game.
I will have to perceiver
Hopefully all soon will be perfect here.

I know I can switch back from here
But to be unready for the change I fear
So I shall give this Gutenberg a try
And hope my posts grow wings and fly.

Haibun for a birthday

A beautiful poem from Jane , perhaps about a parent?

Jane Dougherty Writes

Thinking of you today, still young, never-aging, while I catch up, getting closer with every day and have so little to show for the time spent searching. It would have made no difference to you if I never achieved a thing. You were proud of the potential, and perhaps I should let it rest there too.

Presence and Absence, Song Lyric Sunday.

This week Jim Adams has set us the prompt Lost/ Found /Hide/ Seek. For our Song Lyric Sunday.

The first song that came to mind was Hide and Seek from Imogen Heap. Imogen Heap is an English singer songwriter who I have loved since my youngest son introduced her music to me in 1998 a year before I broke my back for the first time.

Now I was always taken by her amazing lyrics but what also strikes me about Immie is that not only can she write her own lyrics and music she can also play most instruments from brass , woodwind, strings, piano and drums. She used to dash about on stage using different keyboards, computers and instruments until she cleverly came up with her Mi.Mu gloves explained here.

Well now to the song I chose Hide and Seek. It was released in 2009. Why did I pick this particular song? Well that year I broke my back a second time, I actually smashed it to pieces and ended having three ops and being in hospital over a month. Imogen and her music got me through this time, the long nights the scary days and the threats of a wheelchair. When I came out of hospital I still had to learn to walk again and Immie’s music on my iPod shuffle got me through that time.

In fact I even emailed her and told her how much she had helped me. She sent me back a lovely email, sadly over the years I lost that email 😟

Right I have rambled on enough here is a song that means a lot to me. Here is a live version from her early days

And here is a studio lyric version

This is part of Song Lyric Sunday

And finally for good measure another one from Imogen, You Know Where To Find Me.
