The Life of B’s Squares Challenge: Trees.

Being Square is Fun!

This beautiful Guy lives in Wales near an old mill we stayed in last month. I am so grateful that I could capture his spirit and bring him home with me .

Join in this lovely challenge and post a photographic square daily for one month every quarter. The theme changes every quarter and is announced on this blog a few weeks, occasionally days, in advance of the challenge month. The challenge months are January, April, July and October.

July 8: Flash Fiction Challenge

July 8, 2021, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story that features feathers. It can be a single feather or more. Where did the feather come from? Does it hold meaning to the character or story? Go where the prompt leads!

Feathers.

Tom reached out and caught the feather. He smiled, angel feather he thought. 

The angel above him was weeping, their feathers were falling soon so would the angel. 

Tom held the feather, “jump” he said looking up, “I will catch you.” The angel  knew they could trusted him, Tom had faith enough for both of them.

Another feather fell into his hand, the angel’s tears dried and they smiled. Taking the leap of faith the angel fell into Tom’s arms. Falling the angel became whole. Love shone from Tom’s eyes. The angel naked but safe knew he was home.

99 words no more no less.

Wordless Wednesday.

Interlude: Looking Back…

A beautiful clip from Sue Vincent’s silent Eye Blog.

“The circle opened its heart to welcome me back… and ‘welcoming’ was exactly the feeling Stuart reported later, with a good deal of surprise. It was not what he had expected from the place at all. It is hard to find words that describe it… as if each of the different types of stone… the sarsens, bluestones, gneiss and many others… all sing a different note, but no matter how beautifully they harmonise, their song needs to pass through the human heart in order to be heard, felt and lived. So it was with tears of gratitude streaming… and probably a very silly grin… that we finally entered the circle of stones.”

Thursday photo prompt: Glass #writephoto

Today is Thursday and if Sue Vincent was not fighting her own battle she would of set us her weekly #writephoto. So here is one I wrote back in November 2019 .

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a bay with clear, glassy water, reflecting blue sky and clouds. The bay is surrounded by green hills, one of which may be an island in the distance.

Glass.

What lies beneath the surface.

The reflection of Earth’s soul.

It draws you in, swallowing you whole.

The cloudy blue sky full of grace

Look deeper and you will see

The essence of you and me

See in the reflective glass

The beauty of your soul

Let Nature set your goal.

This is part of Sue Vincent’s #writephoto

Be blessed.

I have written a Tanka. Celebrating another day.

And So The Dawn

Come beautiful birds
Fill the skies, grace my eyes
Share with me the dawn
Together we awaken
The beauty of tomorrow

Have a good week everyone

This is part of of Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday Tanka.

Skin Deep.

I needed to write, so here is an Etheree and a Tanka about enduring devotion.

I

See you

My baby

Such joy you bring

Me. I do not see

What other people do.

Beauty is only skin deep

Your devotion makes my heart leap.

You may not have too pretty a face.

Who needs beauty when you can have pure grace.

*****

And you my sweet dog

Always my best support.

Happy together

We have been made immortal

Still one, a beautiful thought.

A little tribute to Emily Carr her monkey Woo and her faithful dog Billy.
