Candy Tanka.

Candy, sugar sweet
Are those lips peppermint pink
Neat hair, is just so
Daring you to steel a kiss.
You share with her candy bliss

The Friday Reminder for #SoCS & #JusJoJan 2021 Daily Prompt – Jan. 30th

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “the beginning, the end.” Write about the beginning of something and the end of  something. Bonus points if your first sentence contains “the end” and your last sentence contains “the beginning.” <– Read that again. Have fun!

Churchill loved cigars.

“This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”

These famouse words spoken by Wartime Prime Minister Winston Churchill , in Autumn of 1944. Just when things look darkest he asked the nation to draw on new depths of strength to fight of a dark enemy.

Now the entire world is faced with an invisible dangerous and comon enemy we need to think on those words. We must all pull together, the whole world. We need to stop petty arguments about vaccines and boarders we are all one against the virus. Do your part wear a mask, social distance and wash your hands.

Winston Churchill for all his faults spoke a lot of sense.

“This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”

#JusJoJan prompt the 28th – “Beach”

Two years ago in May , on the Gower peninsula. A beautiful beach a beautiful day. Here’s an Acrostic Tanka in memory of a beautiful day.

Blissful and quiet
Everyone see something new
Azure sea, maybe
Crystal waters of hidden depth
Holiday dreams will abound

#JusJoJan prompt the 28th – “Storm”

“Storm, storm hold up why are you in such a mood?” Jim shouted at his sister as she stomped across the bar! As she went through the door into the street he caught up with her. “What’s with you, why the face and why were you so mad with that guy, do I need to punch his lights out? “

Storm turn to face her brother eyes flashing and red hair flailing around. “Why,” she shouted, “why did mum and dad call me Storm, I mean Storm for God’s sake it caused me nothing but hassle.” Jim smiled , you know sis it’s not your name it’s your temper that gives you all the grief, not your name! ” He looked her straight in the eyes and smiled, she smiled and then they both laughed. “Mum always said you were born the night of 15 October 1987, the night of Hurricane, the night Michael Fish said there was no storm comming but there was! ” “Yes ” Storm replied, “Dad was working away and mum went into labour! Trees down cars and debris flying around… mum whisked off to hospital, the ride from hell, she called it. You went into Mrs Tyson next door didn’t you.” Laughing Jim agreed.

“So you were called storm …just be grateful they didn’t pick Hurricane! God your tempers scary enough as it is!”

#JusJoJan prompt the 25th – “Specs”

Spics and Specks.

I need my specks to see where I am going, I also need my specks to see the specks of dust, on the table, lit up by the light coming through the window. .

I look out of said window and see specks on the horizon, are they birds, cars, planes or people or just specs of dust…I can’t tell because I need my specs to see!

This is part of LindaGHill’s Justjojan.

#JusJoJan prompt the 24th – “Trigger”

TRIGGER HAPPY. AN ACROSTIC POEM

Trigger happy
Ready half cocked
In a state of waiting
Geared up
Going to be fired
Engaged, finger poised
Ready to pull the trigger.

This is part of LindaGHill’s Justjojan. A day late!

The Friday Reminder for #SoCS & #JusJoJan 2021 Daily Prompt – Jan. 23rd

Badge by Shelley Krupa.

It’s Saturday and time for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Today Linda has given this old chestnut of prompt:Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “close eyes and point.” When you’re ready to write your post, open a book, a newspaper, or whatever is handy and close your eyes and point. Whatever word or picture your finger lands on, make that the basis of your post.

Thankful

I opened my copy of :This is Lockdown by Marje Mallon. It was actually the only book in the room. I contrabuted to this book, in fact that said contrabution is my first foray into print.

I digress, I opened the book, closed my eyes, and pointed. When I opened my eyes the word I was pointing to, and I mean bang on the button pointing to was Thankful.

Firstly I am thankful to Marje for believing in me enough to ask me if I would like to contrabute, along with others, to her book.

Secondly I am thankful that I have a home, food, warmth and my hubby.

Thirdly I am so thankful that our middle lad has survived the Covid, it was nasty and very worrying at times. We lost hubby’s mother to Covid last June. He is back at work and though struggling with exhaustion he is improving.

Fourthly I am thankful that the other two lads, the grandchildren and the daughter in law are all well and coping.

Penultimately I am thankful that after an awful year, healthwise, last year. I am finally regaining my strength.

Finally I am thankful for all of you my lovely blog brothers and sisters. As always you have all helped and supported me. I am truly thankful for you all and my lot.

#JusJoJan prompt the 22nd – “Limp”

Limp Bizkit is a group my youngest son used to like very much during the late nineties and early twenties, he even had posters all over his wall.

Here is my favourite track from them. I think it’s rather good to be honest.

Limp, anything week or not strong.

Limp material, no substance to it.

A degrogatory term Limb Wristed a term for someone effeminate or gay.

Part of LindaGHill’s Justjojan

A limp, to walk unevenly due to a weakness in ankle or leg, or a difference in leg lengths, or hip or knee problems. There are many reasons for limp.

#JusJoJan prompt the 21st – “Spell”

Carrie was always in trouble at school

Teachers dispaired, called her a fool.

Her spelling  and reading were quite unique

To her it was all bubble and squeak.85f7af2c9cd6e67e8aa6dd5018be8962

image found  here 

Now at night school Carrie did excel

Memorising and working every spell

A dyslexic witch  she found the way

To beat the problems every day.e4olmm

image found  here 

Sometimes her spells go wrong

But she sorts them out before too long

Spelling never was her forte

 Now she is off on a broomstick sortie.
