The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Dec. 21/19
It is Friday and Linda said : Time for your prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ingle.” Find a word that contains “ingle” and use it any way you’d like in your post. Have fun!
Ingle has more than one meaning, from Scottish Gaelic the word aingeal meaning fire and light. To Paramore or sweetheart the origin of this is unknown.
Anyhow let’s see if we can have some Christmas fun with those two meanings.
Fairy sat in the inglenook next to the roaring fire.
So grateful was she to be inside, out there in the snow she thought she’d expire.
Father Christmas and the reindeer were on their way.
He it all to do tonight and he had such a full slay!
As he approached the last house he spotted the chimney imiting smoke.
This was the last straw he couldn’t cope.
He stood on the roof and stomped his boots
Come on Dancer and Prancer help me into my fire proof suit
Down the chimney once more
To be surprised to find his paramore
Santa was filled with happy glee his darling ingle to see.
All his Christmas Eve Delivery blues did flee.
This is a late entry for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday.
Mary and Jo Part 21
Today is the twenty first day of Advent, leading up to Christmas. I would like to re-run my take on the Nativity story. I first wrote this in 2011, in the style of prosetry. This is also a new chapter.
The angles were excited about the imminent birth. There were emails were aflying and heaven was full of myrth. The Archangels were busy as Gabriel was away, that he didn’t pull his weight was something they could never say.
The holy father and the holy ghost were exhausted trying to contain the twittering and pinging among the heavenly host.
The holy instagram was buzzing fit to burst because let’s face it this new born would really be a first.
Even satan took an interest though he tried hard not to show it. Although he was egging Herod on he kinda wished he’d blow it.
God was secretly excited as he watched and waited. Though in his heart he grieved for how his son was fated.
But let’s get back to happy thoughts the baby is near due and he will be a saviour for me and you.
