Tingling in your body and your hair stands on end.
Your heart beats faster skipping beats, sweat prickles your brow .
Anticipation and excitement are natures healthy drugs, keeping the world turning

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS May 21, 2022

It’s Saturday and yesterday Linda dropped in with her prompt for our Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday which is “clear.”  Linda said “Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!”

Crystal clear water flows fast, reflecting gentle rainbow colours.
Foolishly we step in, suddenly feeling the strong undertow
Clear and present danger strikes fear in our hearts, clear waters deep.

When reaching for the wild blue yonder edged in gold and silver
Our children, like flowers flourish and mature with our love and care.
Growing up is never easy but it’s as old as nature.

Ron has set a difficult prompt this week . Well it’s difficult for me because I never graduated, in fact here’s the truth I never took any exam qualifications. No O or A levels, as they were in my day, I never went to university or college so I really am in the dark. However all three of our boys have graduated and so their University Graduations are what I have based my Sijo on. I have written two .

Graduation

Pride is palpable holding our breath, our fledgings ready to fly.
Years of learning from the good, bad and mediocre
They are on the edge of the future God willing they may keep the spark.

Graduation

Dreadlocks and piercings gone, new beginning in cap and gown.
No flounces for middle lad but his diplomas just as worthy.
Youngest dressed up to receive his papers first steps for them all.

She reinvented herself, blooming like a tree in spring.
As a butterfly she re emerged, all colours of the rainbow
So different no one recognised her, full of nature’s new life.

Ronovan Writes Sijo Wednesday Poetry Challenge #7. Use PERFECTION as your inspiration this week.

A sunset red and gold is stunning, nature at her best.
Crystal clear starry night, crisp and white midwinter snow pristine.
Blossom on a bough smells devine, nature excells and keeps evolving.

Ronovan Writes Sijo Wednesday Poetry Challenge #6. Use GRACE as your inspiration this week.

Nature knows to accept age with good grace, nothing stops time’s pace.
Trees ignore wrinkles in their bark, happy to hear a song lark.
We’d learn from nature, she has the measure of the universe.

For my Sijo I have used, ‘gives way, produce,’ as synonyms.

The yield.

As day gives way to night, our dreams fight to survive.
Our minds produce our hopes and fears, as night leaves the day in tears.
The moon and sun continue the chase , the stars watch on to see who will win.

Cooking was his whole life, his one and only forte
By rustling up a storm on the stove he knew he could ignite passion
Nature gave him the raw goods, he poured in magic, and aye voila.

Ronovan Writes Sijo Wednesday Poetry Challenge #3. Use GUARD as your inspiration this week.

The child was born in winter, while all was encased in snow
Warm in heart and spirit , guarded by those who’d watched her grow.
Blossomed in the spring, flowered in the sun, gave of fruits in Autumn.
