The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS October 16, 2021

Our Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “if.” Start your post with the word “If.” Enjoy!

If only I’d made more time
To travel to your door
If only we been closer
Or I’d known what I know now before.
If only I had told you how much I really care
If only I could touch you, If only you were here.

My  dear  and  beautiful second eldest  sister died  in October 2015 . She was a nursing  sister  all her  working  life and  she  touched  so many  lives. She died a horrible  and  painful  death due  to a  drug  resistant  bug. 

Last moments

The  machines  murmured and  slowly  stopped their pings

As her  soul, finally  at  peace, was  released  and  found it’s  wings.

After months  of  pain  and  strain she  was  free  to  run and laugh  again.

I hope  you  are  back  with  your  true love and  dancing  to  a sweet refrain.

God  Bless  you  sister  dear

I shall miss  you  so,  yet still feel  you near.

Your departure on my heart has left a scar

You are  still next  to me not  far.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “lid.” Use it in the literal sense, use it in the metaphorical sense, use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

Keep a lid on it, means keep something quiet, don’t tell a soul, a secret. Blow your lid, get angry or annoyed. Blow the lid, let the secret out.
A lid is a top to a container, it can be for a box,tin,saucepan infact any type of container can have a lid.
Personally I think lids have legs, arms and eyes because I have many containers in my cupboards but most of the lids have disappeared? Where do these lids go? Is there a place where all lost lids are having a huge party?

Pandora
What ever you do
They told her
To this be true
To us defer
Don’t lift the lid
Never let loose what’s hid
She didn’t listen
She needed to know.
They found the lid missing
It was her fault, she had to go.
All of the ills and pain and strife
Escaped and blighted all life.

Aspire
To fly higher
To be the one
Who others inspire
To reach for the sun
To work and have fun
To live life to the full
Be the best in the pool
To be the goal and then expire

Far away in the land of never never lived Princess Charmless. Unlike all her princess sisters Charmless was far from beautiful, far from dainty and far from demure. In fact she was so far from being princess like she was often mistaken for one of the commoners. She was, though the nearest to kind in her whole family.

Now near to the castle there was a blacksmith’s forge and that’s where Charmless loved to spend her days, getting hot and dirty helping old Dan the blacksmith. Dan knew exactly who she was but chose not to let on because he was so pleased to have a young and healthy assistant.

Charmless was never happier than when busy at the forge. The King and Queen knew where Charmless was and were happy to know she was, safe and near unlike when she was younger and running off near and far!

One day Prince Charming from a neighbouring kingdom had need to visit the forge. He came in dressed in all his finery and was immediately taken by the unglamorous but cute assistant.

Well so far we have Prince Charming and Princess Charmless thrown together by fate. … Well I am running out of time so to cut a very long and involved story short , they fell in love and got married and bought a nice little castle near both kingdoms. They lived happily ever after.

Oh! They had a huge wedding and their friends came from far and near!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “puzzle.” Use it any way you’d like! I used it as an Acrostic Poem.

Ponder this if you will
Undo things that make you ill
Zen is for the high brow
Zoo is where we live
Life is a conundrum
Everyday mystery!

Stream of Consciousness Saturday.

Badge by Shelley Krupa.

It is Saturday and time for LindaGHill’s weekly prompt.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “where.” Use it any way you’d like!

It’s twenty years today since 9/11, we can’t forget today or this week because the media will not let us. Sadly there have been so many incidents before and since, it never stops. There are people all over the world living with war and terrorism every day. We must never forget any of this and all that went on before 9/11 because if we do there is no hope. No we must not forget but we can’t stop there we must change, we must change.

Where.
Where in the world is there peace.
Where in the world do the oppressed get relief.
Where in the world is there no evil
Where do harsh words and deeds not spill
From the mouths of leaders who’s talk is cheap
They set the rules while others reap
Children die and parents weep.
Yet we have the answers in our reach
The wherewithal is here use it I beseech.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday. A mouthful of pins.

Badge by Shelley Krupa.

its Saturday again and time for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Our Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “pin.” Use it as a noun, use it as a verb, use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

One of my sisters was a fashion designer in her working days . Of course she worked her way up but designer she was and she traveled the world, New York, Hong Kong, China, Lyon, Paris, Milan, Belfast, London. When I was a little girl I would put a coloured pin in the map to plot her progress. She always looked like a fashion plate to me, she still does, there’s a kind of elegance about her that hard to pin down.
As bright as a new pin that was always her. Even now with her fingers bent and gnarled by arthritis she is as sharp as a new pin where style and fashion are concerned.
She made my wedding dress so many years ago, with Taylor’s chalk, tissue pattern (she made the pattern for my dress and fitted it from scratch) satin,cotton and pins.
When I was younger she made many an outfit for me, using needles and pins.
My most abiding memories of Frankie are her kneeling on the floor, tape measure around her neck, pinning material to a paper pattern, tailors chalk in one hand, pincushion on her wrist, and shears in the other and a mouth full of pins.

Now the tools of my trade were not dissimilar, a pin cushion on my wrist, sharp knife,a staple gun and tape measure and of course a mouthful of pins! But that is another story.

LindaGHill popped up in my inbox today and she said : “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “my.” Start your post with the word “My.” Bonus points if you end your post with “yours.” Enjoy!

My, my ! Life can be full of surprises. My mind often reels at what it manages to throw at us. My family play a huge part in my life in fact they are my world. Children and grandchildren are a gift, they bring us grief but they also bring is pure joy.
My blog is a huge part of my life too, I have learnt a lot on there and made many friends.
To my delight we are heading into Autumn my favourite season, with colours of red and gold, mists, sunshine, frost and Halloween.
My mind is busily reeling at the fact that a whole week has sped by and this time last week hubby and I were getting ready for the fantastic Golden Wedding Anniversary party that our boys had organised for us. We had a wonderful day with family and friends. My hubby and I were truly touched!
Well that’s my ramble for this week’s SoCs…what’s yours.

It was luck we met
Good or bad I’ve not decided yet.
Luck is such a fickle thing
It can make you cry or sing.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday. 7/8/21

Badge by Shelley Krupa.

Your Friday prompt for stream of consciousness saturday is “wee.” Use the word “wee” or find a word that contains it and use it in your post. Have fun!

Wee.

In the wee small hours of the morning
Just before the dawning.
A teeny weeny mouse
Tippy toes around the house.
Mother’s up, the baby weening
The sun awakes beaming.
Wee mouse is ready for bed
Between the wood work to rest it’s head.
Baby rests but mother weeps
She’s so desparate for sleep .
So much to do so she washes up and sweeps.
And soaks the nappies full of wee.
