Colleen Chesebro’s Weekly Poetry Challenge. Shadow and Light.

This week Colleen Chesebro of Fairy Whisperer has set us our weekly prompt of Shadow and Light.

This week I have written a Tanka using a picture taken on a short break with people I really love and our dogs. I hope I have conveyed how happy we were.

We were four giants

With two playful loving dogs

Our story is told

Here in shadow and in light

Out of dark we made all bright.

K’LEE’S and DALE’S Cosmic Photo Challenge. 22.8.17


Hi Running late as I have been for the last fortnight here is my entry for K’LEE’S and DALE’S Cosmic Photo Challenge #CosPhoChal .

Now don’t forget Dale has moved onwards and upwards to Return of the Internet Nobody.

This week the challenge from Dale is Rainy days and by special fluke and for this week only K’Lee has also set a Prompt Living in the light.

We have had a lot of rain lately so this morning Ruby and I , while having our survey of the garden took some wet photos… Well I took the photos, Ruby being a lab sniffed around! 

Now a couple from last year in France… It rains there too. 

And not forgetting K’LEE’S Prompt, Living in the Light.

Have a great day all Rain or Light.

Song Lyric Sunday: Gambling.

This week Helen Vahdati has set the prompt theme for Song Lyric Sunday as a song about  gambling.


Rules and Pingback Here
Now as I have told Helen I loathe and detest everything to do with gambling and gaming. I have seen and suffered the consequences of a gambling addiction first hand. Neither my husband or I have ever gambled but our lives have been deeply touched my it.

Anyway enough, this a weekly prompt and I shall treat it as such. I have picked two songs. The first one is about a gamble, the type you cannot avoid , like taking a chance, on meeting someone, taking a job or just getting up in the morning. 

The Beatles… If I fell in  love with you.

Lyrics for both songs from A to Z Lyrics.

“If I Fell”

If I fell in love with you
Would you promise to be true
And help me understand
Cos I’ve been in love before
And I found that love was more
Than just holding hands

If I give my heart to you
I must be sure
From the very start
That you would love me more than her

If I trust in you oh please
Don’t run and hide
If I love you too oh please
Don’t hurt my pride like her
Cos I couldn’t stand the pain
And I would be sad if our new love was in vain

So I hope you see that I
Would love to love you
And that she will cry
When she learns we are two
Cos I couldn’t stand the pain
And I would be sad if our new love was in vain

So I hope you see that I
Would love to love you
And that she will cry
When she learns we are two
If I fell in love with you

The second song is by Lady GaGa and is an obvious gambling song. I have to admit I love the video! 

“Poker Face”

Mum mum mum mah
Mum mum mum mah
Mum mum mum mah
Mum mum mum mah
Mum mum mum mah

I wanna hold ’em like they do in Texas, please
Fold ’em, let ’em, hit me, raise it, baby, stay with me (I love it)
Love game intuition play the cards with Spades to start
And after he’s been hooked I’ll play the one that’s on his heart

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh-e-oh-oh-oh
I’ll get him hot, show him what I’ve got
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh-e-oh-oh-oh,
I’ll get him hot, show him what I’ve got

[Chorus:]
Can’t read my,
Can’t read my
No he can’t read my poker face
(she’s got me like nobody)
Can’t read my
Can’t read my
No he can’t read my poker face
(she’s got me like nobody)

P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(Mum mum mum mah)
P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(Mum mum mum mah)

I wanna roll with him a hard pair we will be
A little gambling is fun when you’re with me (I love it)
Russian Roulette is not the same without a gun
And baby when it’s love if it’s not rough it isn’t fun, fun

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh-e-oh-oh-oh
I’ll get him hot, show him what I’ve got
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh-e-oh-oh-oh,
I’ll get him hot, show him what I’ve got

[Chorus]

P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(Mum mum mum mah)
P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(Mum mum mum mah)
(Mum mum mum mah)
(Mum mum mum mah)

I won’t tell you that I love you
Kiss or hug you
Cause I’m bluffin’ with my muffin
I’m not lying, I’m just stunnin’ with my love-glue-gunning
Just like a chick in the casino
Take your bank before I pay you out
I promise this, promise this
Check this hand cause I’m marvelous

[Chorus 3x]

[3x]
P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(Mum mum mum mah)
P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(Mum mum mum mah)
