One-Liner Wednesday/JusJoJan the 20th, 2021 – Defeat

You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.

One-Liner Wednesday/JusJoJan the 13th, 2021 – Snow Carolers

Firstly let’s go with One Liner Wednesday, and an entry for the Alternative Dictionary. Snow Carolers. A group of people who enjoy rolling USVs around in the snow.

No on to Jusjojan. Again the prompt bis Snow Carolers , this time with a photo prompt from Linda.

Photo: A group of six snowmen of different sizes. Two have evergreen branches for hair; one has a moustache of tinsel and arms, and seems to be conducting music; one is kind of hidden and kind of plain by the looks of it; and the two smallest look like a boy and a girl with hats and scarves. They’re standing on the side lawn of a house.

Every year, every year without out fail, when they opened the curtains on the morning of December the 17th, they were greeted by the Snow Carolers.

Everyone commented on them, the six snow people set out as if singing Christmas Carols. Three adults, a teenager and two children, all wrapped up and singing.

It was a total mystery no one had ever seen anyone build them. Everyone in the Ducart household had sat up on the night of the 16th December to catch the culprits. Even the neighbours had taken turns to see if the master snow sculpturers could be revealed. Indeed the entire neighbourhood had got involved at one time or another but it was still a mystery. Last year they had even set up a security camera. That too had failed to bring forth any answers. There had been a power outage between 4am and 6am and when the footage was watched, at 3.59am there was nothing but snow on the front lawn, by 6.02am the six Snow Carolers were out there and ready to perform!

Well it had been 15years since the Snow Carolers had first appeared. At the usual New Year’s dinks celebration Paul and Jenny Ducart announced that they were no longer going to try and solve the mystery of Snow Carolers. The whole family infact the whole neighbourhood loved them, so why not just enjoy them. Everyone agreed.

The priory on the Rim of Io

The  priory on the Rim of was the last of it’s kind almost forgotten by the rest of creation. …but not quite!

Stay away from the windows she had been told by grandfather and by Mother Superior both. They had impressed upon her the importance of her presence  being  there was to be a secret. The Nuns were all delightful and so kind but they, being a silent order could only speak to her between the hours of six and eight pm. So even though they did their best to entertain their guest she was lonely.

She spent her days , happily in the priory and it’s gardens, the smell of the strange flowers native to Io calming and soothing her. Her nights she was enthralled by the other three Galilean moons that orbit Jupiter.

Keep away from the windows at night they all told her, you must not be seen. Your condition will give you away. 

She did try but the spectacular light that was generated by Io and the other three moons of Jupiter was enthralling.

Stay away from the windows they had begged her but the lights already had a hold on her.

And so it was that she , the last pregnant woman in the  Universe, the last pregnant woman in thirty years stood at the window watching the lights washing over Io.

Sadly  the bounty hunters from Mars saw her at the window, they saw her long hair and pregnant belly, too young, too beautiful to be an ancient Nun.

What future the Universe the only pregnant woman in thirty years held to ransom. All because she could not resist looking out the window.

An extra long One-Liner Wednesday.

”So many words veiling the truth the others turning and it’s time for us to choose and people will try to take you down too
But if I was a betting man, I’d put all my money on you so be the young, the brave, the powerful ’cause the world is standing waiting for someone to come and change it.”
