The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS March 11, 2023

Badge by Shelley Krupa..

Our host LindaGHill is here again with our prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday, she said:Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “mat/met/mitt/mot/mutt.” Choose one or use them all, any way you’d like in your post. Have fun!

Well I have written an Etheree , ten lines of free form poetry starting ten syllables in the first line and descending to one syllable in the last line.


It’s cold and dark as I travel through this
Dead land touched by *Mot lord of dead things.
Mutt my only companion
Until we met a black cat
Curled up on a hair mat
Removing my
Mitt I said
Well met


apologies to Ruby she is not a mutt , that’s just poetic licence.

*Mot was the god of sterility and the master of all barren places. Traditionally, Mot and Baal were perpetually engaged in a seasonal struggle in which Baal, like many similar harvest deities, was annually vanquished and slain.

    Well done, Willow! All the words, and another new style of poetry for me. When I read “Mutt my only companion” I thought Ruby is probably thinking, “what else do you need?”

    I hope you have a great weekend.

    Lilydog says Ruby should get extra treats and she will help with the “make the hooman feel as guilty as hell” look if required

    Oh, I never knew Mot was a God too. I only know it to be French for “word” 🤗
