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

It’s Saturday again and time for Lindaghill’s #SoCs. This week Linda said:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “instructions.” Write instructions for anything you know how to do. As detailed or as rambling as you’d like. Enjoy!

Instructions on writing an Acrostic poem. Acrostically.

If you want to write an Acrostic

Note one : it is not magic.

SoCs now that is different

Think of words that’s the intent

Remember it has to spell

Unerringly on the left

Correctly and make sense

Truly I’ve failed, looked dense.

In following the above

On the instructions given with love

None of you can fail

Soon your poem will done.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Feb. 16/19 Yawn

Well ten minutes ago I had a brilliant idea for #SoCs. Then I got distracted by some some beautiful posts in my reader and here I am clueless as to what this world changing post was about!pro

Well it most definitely was something to do with a yawn. How do I remember that. Easy because this week Linda G.Hill said : ” Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “yawn.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the word “yawn,” when you sit down to write your post. Enjoy!”

Now our Ruby yawns a lot, she yawns if she feels someone or something is invading her space, or if she is confused or bored and of course she yawns if she is tired.

Us humans yawn when tired, stressed or lacking oxygen. have you ever yawned and felt your jaw lock… oh my that can be so painful! Also if one person in a room yawns it is very  catching and everyone in  the room yawns. Now as you can see I am rambling on here and it is no doubt very boring. Very much unlike the wonderful post I was going to write had it escaped my brain and vanished into the either never to be seen again.

To save further embarrassment I have  added s to Yawn and  written an Acrostic Tanka.

Yawn

Yes we have to yawn

All of us as soon as born

Will know how to yawn

No one is exempt no one

So cover your mouth and yawn.

Just Jot it January Day Four. Enigmatic.

Our prompt for JusJoJan 2019, January 4th is brought to you by Virgobeauty! Click here to find her last post and say hi while you’re there! Virgobeauty’s word for our prompt today is “enigmatic.” Use it anywhere in your post or make it the theme of your post. Have fun!

I have tried an Acrostic Nonet today. I will try to explain the word within the poem. This fun, you know.😉

Enigmatic

Easy to understand it was not

No it was mysterious , strange

In truth it was fathomless

Great men tried to solve it

Most were just confused

All realised

The answer

Is the

Clue.

Thursday photo prompt: Setting #writephoto

This is my entry for Sue Vincent of the Daily Echo’s #writephoto, Setting.

I have decided to try and write an Acrostic Etheree.

Setting Sun.

Sun

Ebbing.

The sands of

Time teetering,

In seconds, minutes

Nothing left for it to

Give, save golden memories

Sun set time for recovering

Upon the distant hill she perches

Now night approaches it’s dark arms outstretched.

#SoCS Nov. 10/18

This week LindaGHill said. “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “mean(s).” Use it with or without the “s,” any way you’d like. Have fun!”. So this week I decided to do a short Acrostic Poem.

Rules and Pingback Here.

Mean Acrostic

Mealy-mouthed is mean

Ever tight when time to pay

And not meaning what you say

Never nice your just plain mean.

Scary October 2

Here we are at the unholy month of October. I thought I would do a paranormal, witchy, unholy bunch of poems, some new and some old.

Don’t forget to check out Jane Dougherty and Kat Myrman‘s plans for this month!

Today’s poem is an Acrostic one.

All Hallows Eve.

Autumn is here what’s in store

Light is in short supply

Lingering sprites begin to fly.

————-

Have you felt the chill

About the streets it folds

Lowly spirits roam at will

Looking for unsuspecting souls

Open doors quickly shut

When mists begin to swell

Souls come up from hell.

————–

Evil rises at this time of year

Vampires ghouls and bats

Eve of all hallows brings fear.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday. 1/09/2018.

For this week’s #SoCs LindaGHill said: Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “round.” Use it as a word by itself or find a word that contains it. Bonus points if you start and/or finish your post with it. Have fun!:

Rules and Pingback Here

Surrounds Acrostic.

Surrounded by clear blue ice water

Undercurrents pulling you out

Ruled by the changing climates

Receeding, the ice flows

Only make things worse

Unsafe for you

Now you starve

Drifting

Solo.

Compassion Acrostic

Thinking of all those in need of compassion, at this time thinking of my brother in law lost in the grip of demantia and my sister coping but struggling.

I wrote this back in January 2015.

Compassion Acrostic.

Comfort me in my hour of need

Open your eyes and ears to me, take heed

Mindfulness is needed here in the world

Pain and grief are like weapons hurled.

All the woes of this vale of tears

Scream loudly in our ears

Sacred heart give us hope

In you we trust , help us cope.

OH! help us to help each other

Now in our hour of need to love our sister and brother.

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.

CELESTIAL

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

Infinite

All just

Light

#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 🐥🐤🐣 Easter eggs.💜🐰🐇

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.

Abundance.

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

Eat.
