The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS June 8/19

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “open book, point, write.” Pick up the closest book to you when you sit down to write your post. Close your eyes, open the book, and place your finger on the page. Whatever word or phrase your finger lands on, write about it. Enjoy.

And so the Elders conferred. They spent the night in a huddle and discussed what to do with the child.

Wild and noisy as she was everyone of them loved her. In fact everyone in the village loved her. She was three now and the only child to have been born for thirty years.

Since the illness arrived that had made all the women infertile the human race had been slowly dying out.

Three years ago when she was born the entire village decided to keep her a secret and they had. Every villager played their part in raising her. Sadly her mother had died giving birth.

So the night passed deep in conference the Elders came to a decision. They would keep her safe until she was past puberty and then they would have to tell the bigger world out there that they had a , hopefully disease free female. Perhaps somewhere else other babies had been born and kept safe.

They announced their decision to the villagers at dawn. They all join hands to pray that his was the start of a new race.


This is part of LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday, #SoCs. The opening line was taken from the workbook that accompanied The Silent Eye‘s 2019 workshop Lord of the Deep. My story has nothing what so ever to do with the workshop apart from it being the closest book to hand when I wrote this.

Silence : Acrostic Poem

Silence is golden, it can cut you like a knife.

It can be your down fall or even save your life.

Listening to silence can be the hardest thing to

Earsplitting silence can easily deafen you.

No silent exit , leave on a note of discord

Cover your ears to soundless applause.

Earth shattering peace, like all things has its flaws.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS May 25/19

Cosy Rosy

Picked a posy

Took it to give

To sexy Josey

Sexy Josey

Laughed at Rosy

Threw away

The lovely posy

**

Cosy Rosy

Refused to cry

Or to even ask why

So nasty was Josey.

**

Deftly Bosey

Retrieved the posy

Presented it

To Cosy Rosy

**

Happy Rosy

Danced with Bosey

They gave not a thought to Josey

Who threw out the posy.

Cosy Rosy

Married Bosey

Happy couple

Pitied Josy

Thursday photo prompt: Transition #writephoto

Step into the light

To learn to fly

Be a force of right

Don’t give in, just try.

If in shadows you cower

You will only see the half

Open your heart, let it flower

Seize life drink the whole draught.

********

Sometimes it is easier to accept half measures than to strive to understand the whole. Not all make the transition to acceptance and knowledge. Yet we can all try to.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS May 18/19

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “adverb.” Start your post with any adverb and just run with it. Have fun!

Absentmindedly she sat in the café pushing the food around her plate. She had been sat there for over an hour.

Sighing deeply she was bored, but as she politely ordered another coffee she saw the mark arrive.

The adrenaline began violently coursing through her body. Feeling sexually aroused she bit her lip.

Quietly she approached the mark, as she passed him she clumsily fell into him. No one took any notice if the insignificant woman, who unseen by anyone injected the man on his mobile.

Elatedly she left Oh! That felt good, she loved the naughty rush of the kill… The handsome paycheck helped too.

Back at the café the mark finished his coffee and contemplated the rest of his day not knowing he had only minutes to live.

He got up to leave and collapsed loudly.

This little tale came to you care of LindaGHill’s #SoCs.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS May 11/19. Strain.

Take the strain

It’s worth the pain

We’ll never walk this way again.

Lose the slack

Don’t even look back

Tighten up we’re under attack.

Fight the stress

Your such a bloody mess

Keep it tight there’s no redress.

So take the stain

And loose the slack

Fight the stress there’s no going back.

This strained emotion came to your care of LindaGHill’s #SoCs.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS May 4/19.

Hello it’s Saturday morning and time for LindaGHill’s Saturday Stream of Consciousness. Our Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “fall from the sky.” Write about anything that falls from the sky–real, imagined, or idiomatic. Have fun!

They fell from the sky. At the beginning just a few. No one really noticed at first, because they were not affected.

It was noticed finally, this strange phenomenon, after a week or two. The feathers were everywhere. Covering lakes and rivers and finally the seas.

Machinery ground to a halt, planes , cars and trains crashed. The world fell silent. Governments panicked and brought out Draconian laws to keep the peace.

We thought it could get no worse, no transport of any sort, everything was effected. Nothing could function, people began to starve. Not just the poor those with money and power suffered too.

Then when we thought it could get no worse the angels fell from the sky.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS April 27/19

This is part of LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This week we have used the letters E&X together in a word or as a word.

Any, sorry this is so late.

Expound, explain if you can

Who invented life’s master plan.

It must be a being of great humour

Who changes tack from hour to hour.

Never leaving any explanation

Stretching our brains, so many explosions.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS April 20/19

An Acrostic Haiku for #SoCs

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS April 13/19

Slipstream

*******

Soar

Lapwing

Into your

Plodding wing beat

Steady, uneven

Turning and rising high

Riding the thermals into

Eternity among the clouds

Angels watch your slow un rhythmic beat

My soul yearns to ride within your slipstream.

This is part of #SoCs.
