The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS June 2/18

This is my entry for LindaGHill‘s Stream of Consciousness Saturday.

Linda’s challenge this week is “Our favourite word, use it in the post, base a post on it or just write about it’s concept” most important have fun.

Rules and Pingback Here.

My favourite word is Celestial, I did want to do an Acrostic Nonet but you need ten letters to write one of those. So I decided to do an Acrostic, almost Nonet. Almost Nonet because celestial only has nine letters. Okay enough explanations here is my celestial poem.


Can you see the stars up above

Endlessly stretching universe

Light dies out like lost love

Each tiny spec a star

Solar or Lunar

Timeless they move


All just



#SoCS March 30/18 Bun.

Today Linda of A Life in Progress has given us the Bun to use for our #SoCs. We can use it in a word or as a word in its own right.

Rules and Pingback Here.

We always had hot cross buns on Good Friday for breakfast. They were always fresh from the oven. I loved them somthered with butter and jam. It was a delicious way to start the day and end our Lenten fast.

We would not have had anything so tasty since our lemon and sugar pancakes 40 days previous on Shrove Tuesday.

Then we went to mass followed by the Stations of the Cross. I am sure we were all there for over three hours! That’s a long time when you are a baby, a toddler, young girl and even teenager.

I do remember it always seemed to go dark around 3pm. That’s the time the Crusifixion was said to have taken place. Whether that was autosuggestion or not I always expect it.

Sunday was mass again and then ūüź•ūüź§ūüź£ Easter eggs.ūüíúūüźįūüźá

Well that’s my ramblings I decided to do a Acrostic Nonet about Easter and Hot Cross Buns.

Using the nine lettered word Abundance, well nowadays you can buy an abundance of them all year round.


Always at Easter after Lents done

Bakers prepare the hot cross bun

Uncannily fruity fun

No one can resist them

Don’t fib you love them.

April or March

No matter

Come and

Picture perfect she smiled

I was totally beguiled

Convinced by her excitement

Taking up the pavement

Under her spell completely

Reeling at her beauty sweetly

Enchanted,caught picture perfect.

Awaking feeling half dead

No please not again

Taking drugs will stop helping

Silently he starts to weep.

Today is Day 15 of Loveuary. Now to choose a prompt ? Marriage, I have added a D as poetic license because I want to do an Acrostic Nonet and that demands 9 lines and so needs  nine letters.

Marriage with a D

Image found here

More than a wedding day is marriage

And vows need plenty of hard work

Rekindling love every day

Remembering to care

Igniting passion

Aging as one

Growing close

Rules  and Pingback here 


Elusive : Haiku

To strive  and to dream

Every minute spent in chase

Of you goal, your keen



Endlessly  chasing  those dreams

Longinly striving  it  seems

Unashamedly  fighting  your own quest

Steadily  gaining  ground  achieving  your  best

Instinctively  climbing  that  hill

Vieing   for  pole position imposing  your will

Even  now,  you know  the  elusive will be  yours .


Elusive  Happiness : Poem

Happiness is  an elusive  thing

As rare  gossamer thread on angel wings.

Reach out  for  happiness  and  back it  springs.

Nay! It’s ¬†not ¬†for ¬†you, you ¬†human things!

CONTEMPT. Acrostic Poem


Could  there  ever  be

One  so  low  as  he

No one  ever  knew

The  contempt he  held just grew

Everyone was  below  his  care

Malicious were ¬†the words ¬†he’d ¬†spare

Power  over  all he had

To shout contempt and ¬†hit his gravel on it’s pad !



Just Jot It JauaryDay 17. Complaint

Hi ¬†it is ¬†day 17 at ¬†Just Jot ¬†It January over ¬†at ¬†LindsGHill’s blog¬†Shan Jeniah¬†, is ¬†doing her third and final day as our guest host for Just Jot It January. ¬†The Just Jot It January 17th prompt, brought to you by ¬†me, blogging at Willowdot21¬†is: ‚ÄúComplaint.‚ÄĚ Use it any way you‚Äôre inspired to. And make sure you stop by and say hi to Willow as well! Here‚Äôs her blog:¬†

I used ¬†to ¬†work in ¬†Customer Services ¬†in a large ¬†supermarket, I had ¬†to deal ¬†with ¬†all sorts of ¬†complaints, difficult ¬†customers, visitors ¬†and ¬†queries… Not ¬†mention ¬†take orders ¬†for ¬†party ¬†food ¬†and ¬†cakes ¬†and ¬†at ¬†Christmas, Turkeys ¬†and ¬†Geese! Easy ¬†one hand ¬†tied ¬†behind your ¬†back ¬†stuff!

Well ¬†you ¬†would ¬†not ¬†believe some of ¬†the ¬†daft ¬†things ¬† we had ¬†to ¬†deal ¬†with. EG : Lady ¬†wearing ¬†Barbour ¬†Jacket ¬†and ¬†headscarf ¬†throws any ¬†empty ¬†egg carton ¬†at ¬†me . ” These ¬†eggs ¬†all cracked ¬†when I ¬†boiled ¬†them ” ¬†she screeched at ¬†me! I ¬†replied ¬†that ¬†eggs ¬†do crack ¬†when ¬†they are boiled occasionally. WRONG! ¬†I will not ¬†bore ¬†you ¬†with ¬†what ¬†happened ¬†next ¬†but in ¬†the ¬†end I gave ¬†her ¬†a refund ¬†and ¬†another ¬†box ¬†of ¬†eggs! I also had ¬†to ¬†smile at ¬†her ¬†and apologise ¬†for ¬†her inconvenience??

Another ¬†day ¬†a woman ¬†came up ¬†to ¬†the ¬†desk ¬†and told ¬†her ¬†husband ¬†had ¬†been in ¬†at ¬†the weekend ¬†and ¬†a cashier ¬†has been ¬†rude ¬†to him. I asked if she had ¬†the receipt¬†so I could ¬†see which cashier ¬†had ¬†served him. …. Imagine ¬†my ¬†delight ¬†when ¬†she handed ¬†me ¬†a bill ¬†for ¬†a Tesco’s … I ¬†smiled ¬†sweetly ¬†and ¬†said ¬†sorry ¬†madam ¬†but ¬†the ¬†incident ¬†did ¬†not happen here.

I got ¬†thing’s ¬†wrong ¬†too, one ¬†evening ¬†we were ¬†checking ¬†the returns ¬†.. ” who ¬†dealt ¬†with ¬†this prepacked ¬†Colli ” the ¬†supervisor ¬†asked, I said ¬†I had. “what ¬†did ¬†you ¬†do ¬†for ¬†the customer ” she ¬†asked ¬†sounding ¬†irritated. I told her ¬†I ¬†had ¬†done ¬†as always ¬†given her ¬†a replacement ¬†and a refund. She ¬†almost ¬†smiled. “Great , they ¬†are ¬†from Marks ¬†and Spencer’s” ¬†we ¬†did ¬†all chuckle !

I ¬†won’t ¬†go on ¬†but ¬†below ¬†is ¬†an Acrostic ¬†Nonet ¬† about ¬†the ¬†time ¬†a man ¬†came in ¬†and ¬†thrust a bunch of ¬†flowers into my ¬†face. ” They ¬†don’t ¬†smell, ¬†they are ¬†seven days ¬†old ¬†and ¬†were guarantied for ten day. ” ¬†… what could I ¬†do ¬†apart ¬†from smile? ¬†Yes ¬†a ¬†refund ¬†and ¬†a new bunch of ¬†flowers!

Acrostic Nonet  Complaint.

Can you ¬†help me ¬†these flowers don’t smell

Only had  them seven days see

My wife’s so disappointed

Please do something for me

Let’s see what ¬†to do

Are  you  happy

If I give

New buds
