You may, if you wish, make some kind of link between the Haiku Challenge prompt of (CHILD and Grow). and this Décima Challenge of CONTRAST in the A rhyme lineThis means you could write a haiku post using the prompt words. Then do a Décima post using this week’s prompt uniting the two with a common message.
 2 CHALLENGES are SEPARATE but CAN BE combined if YOU CHOOSE to do so.

You, now to then such contrast
You’ve become more than I guessed.
So grown up I am impressed.
I nurtured you in the past
We cope whatever shadows cast.
So whatever you may do
I will always defend you
You’re my child, I’ll watch you grow.
Blood of my blood I love you so.
No more to say the dye’s cast.

You just drive me wild

Drive me to distraction child

Drive me off the rails

Drive me beyond my tether

Could you drive me off ? Never!

Driving off now

Today is the sixteenth day of Advent, leading up to Christmas. I would like to re-run my take on the Nativity story. I first wrote this in 2011, in the style of prosetry

“I have an idea” said Balthazar “I think we should wear our national robes to show honour to a new king I have mine with me do you two need to go shopping”.
The other two men smiled and produced the robes they’d brought, they had all had but one thought.

The shepherds on the way down from the pastures to the town discussed whether the sheep would be a good idea for the parent’s of the new king to keep. We must take them though our intentions we need to show.
Sitting quietly in the back was Josh a nephew who was out with the shepherds the night the angels came. He will never forget the light, the voices or the beauty, he will never be the same again.
Scouring his mind Josh wanted to find a gift but he had none, then in his pocket something slipped into his hand he did not know at first but his search was done. A friendship bracelet his friend had given him, as he had left to go and fight a war. This bracelet had protected him and now it would carry the protection over to the new king

a gift fit for a king

Sitting back and feeling good he was happy to pass his good luck on to the new child who was to be the One. Easier now in his head he relaxed and closed his eyes and relived last night. The angel and how was lit the countryside. He felt angel wings touch his face and felt his soul fill with grace.

All morning in the heat of the car “how much longer, are we there yet” Finally there. The heat had the beach rammed packed. They piled out the car, windbreak,bucket,spades, packed lunches, kids. Caught like sardines on overcrowded beach. “How long do we have to stay” she thought.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday: Novel.

This  part  of LindaGHill’s  Stream of Consciousness  Saturday  Linda  said  : ” Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “novel.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!”

Rules and Pingback  here 

What  a  novel  idea 

Sitting  in  the  kitchen  she finally  decided  to  try  something novel and new. A different  approach  maybe  it  would  work. Walking  to  the  bottom of  the stairs  she  cleared  her throat and  called out in a calm and pleasant  voice.” It is  seven o’clock  I shall be  leaving  here at seven thirty. Breakfast is  ready.”

She  returned  to the kitchen  finished  her  crumpet  and  coffee…. it tasted  really  good maybe because  she was not  getting up  every  five  minutes  to  to  shout  to  her  children.

Stacking  the  dishwasher  she  looked at  the clock, ten minutes until she needed to  leave. This  was a novel feeling , no  stress no  stomachache. At  seven thirty  precisely she picked up her car keys  and  handbag  and  left  the house.

On the drive  to work  she relished  the novel  feeling of  silence  and  peace. She  arrived  at  work on  time and  relaxed. At nine thirty  her mobile rang  she  turned it on  to silent and ignored it.  That  was novel  too but  it  would only  be  the children  wanting  this or  that!

***************************************

As soon as  she had  closed  the front  door after  a  five minute  stunned  silence  all hell broke  loose . There  were four  dazed teenagers  fighting for  the  bathroom, frantically searching  for  clothes. Mum had  only  called  them once and  she had  left  on  time.

Quiet a novel feeling  for them too. They  all had  to  fend  for  themselves and  they were all shocked  and  stunned!

Well Mum did  this  five  days on the  trot, she looked better  and  felt  better.

A Novel  side effect  the  children  got up  on  time  everyday , tidied  their  rooms  and  sorted  their  laundry!

Meanwhile  in  the  REAL  WORLD  nothing  changed…I  said  real  world , not  a novel!

Song Lyric Sunday

The talented Helen Espinosa  of This  life one  word  at a time said  : I’ve decided that the theme for this week is all about love.  You know that whole saying, “They’re playing our song…”?  Well this week, we are posting songs that make us think of those we love.  It doesn’t have to be a lover, husband or boyfriend.  It can be a best friend, or a sibling or a child.  Just post a song that makes you think of someone you love.

SoCs: All for Naught a Nonet

Did I work  and  care  for all of  them

Tending  to their  every need not

Realizing  it was all

For naught. Since I  cut that

Umbilical Knot

I was not on

Their minds

All for

Naught?
