The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS May 20, 2023

Badge by Shelley Krupa..

Hi everyone LindaGHill is here with our prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This week she said: “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “stick.” Use it as a noun or a verb; use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

So I have decided to write a few of the Landay – The Landay is the poetic form of Afghan women. The poem is 22 syllables long and contains 2 lines. 9 syllables in the first and 11 in the second. Rhyme is not specifically called for but a great many do rhyme at the end of each line. Subjects can include, but are not limited to, war, separation, homeland, grief, or love.

I learned of this form of poetry from Kat Myrman at Like Mercury Colliding.

I will always stick to you like glue
Have your back , at your side, always there for you.


A stick can help you to stand and walk
It can knock you down if you don’t talk my talk .


If we stick to the straight and narrow The path to God will be swift as an arrow


The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS April 29, 2023: Yesterday.

Badge by Shelley Krupa..

Well it is time for LindaGHill to bring us our prompt for SoCs this week. She said “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “yes.” Find a word that starts with “yes” or use the word “yes” as is. Bonus points if you start your post with the word you choose. Enjoy!”

Yesterday’s tears all shed and dried As useless now as when first cried!
Guard your words don’t open your mouth
If you say something wrong you’ll let all hell out.

Keep your head down, avert your eyes
Consider the consequences of your replies.
Keep a lid on emotions don’t say too much
Think twice, beware of raw nerves they may touch.

Don’t comment, yet don’t be too quiet
That’ll be seen as sulking and cause a riot.
You should have flown when you had the chance,
You were a fool to stay and follow the dance.

Things were not as they seemed
Not the fairytale you had dreamed.
Below the surface paddling like mad
To catch the freedom you once had

Fears behind the smile on your face.
Your eyes your saving grace
At being happy you make a play
You wish you’d realised yesterday

Hello everyone it time for Stream of Consciousness Saturday and LindaGHill is here with this week’s prompt. Linda said : “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “tape.” Use it as a noun or a verb. Use it any way you like. Enjoy!”

Colours sewn together a rainbow collection
There’s love and life taped herein, from every direction.
As my dad would say life’s rich tapestry
Is what makes us human and free.
Fingers may bleed putting in the stitches
Clever women have it all taped up, tapestry witches.
So bring me threads and ribbons so life is all taped up.
Tapestry of history and love has life all quilted up.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS March 4, 2023

Badge by Shelley Krupa..

Good Saturday LindaGHill is here with our Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “wild animal.” Choose a wild animal (or many wild animals) and use it any way you’d like in your post. Enjoy!

I know cows are not wild animals but as far as I am concerned they are wild enough for me ….I am terrified of cows.
Reason one being nearly trampled to death!
Over fifty years ago Hubby and I, not long married when to stay at my brother’s house in Wiltshire so we could have a short break.
We were out and about on the second day walking around the surrounding area. We took a footpath that was just below the brow of a hill. All of a sudden we heard a rumbling, we looked toward the brow of the hill just in time to see a herd of cows charging straight for us.
To our horror they were moving at high speed. Luckily for us there was a bush not far from us. We dashed to the bush and pushed our way into it!
The next minute felt like an eternity as the cows thundered around us, we felt the ground shake, their hot breath was on us and we could feel them brush by us! Honestly it was awful but we both survived unscathed! Neither of us have ever got over it!

Secondly when we were on holiday in Wales just pre-pandemic we stayed at a beautiful cottage on a farm. We had taken Ruby with us…bless she could still walk then. There were plenty of lovely places to visit and lovely walks for Ruby.

One afternoon I took Ruby up the lane to have a trot on the common…. The sheep were not out so I thought, good and I let Ruby off her lead. As we walked a little way on the common I noticed about five or six cows on the far side of the green expanse.

All went well, I kept to my side of the common and the cows to their side. Then I noticed one of the cows had huge horns was watching Ruby and I . So I decided that Ruby and I would head back to the cottage.
What I didn’t realise was that the cow that was watching me was actually a bull. …he decided to come over and investigate who we were! His four lady friends came with him!
Well Ruby was so excited she loves all animals , in my panic I thought I had lost Ruby’s lead so I grabbed her collar and headed across the common toward the cattle grid and safety!
Well the bull and his friends caught us up and once again in my life I had cows jostling me… honestly and this time a bull too! They were breathing down my neck and the bull was actually nudging me.
Well we got off the green in one piece and Ruby really did not want to leave her new friends.
When I got back to the cottage the farmer’s wife was outside watering the flowers… She smiled at me then said, “You look pale my dear” I told what had happened and she laughed!
“Oh! That’s Ben … he’s twelve years old and so gentle… When he was born my husband was very ill and didn’t get him registered in time. Well that meant they could not breed him or sell him so he was castrated and he’s a pet really” well he scared me.

I could tell you about the horses in Wales or the Swans in Devon but I have traumatized myself enough for one day.

Oh! The lead I thought I’d lost , when I got in hubby made me a cuppa while I told him what had happened and I said and on top of all that I’ve lost the lead. Hubby laughed at me and said, “that pink leaf around your neck?”

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Oct. 10/2020

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “medium.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Meantime, it’s not kind

A thief, never on your side

Leaving like the tide

No way to keep some behind

It is limited meantime.

This is part of LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Aug. 8/2020 2nd Bite

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “spot.” Write whatever image the word “spot” invokes. Have fun!


I fancied another bite at the cherry this week. I do love Star Trek especially The Next Generation. Mr Data is a great Character, an android who would dearly love to be human. ….here he is talking poetically about his cat Spot.

This second piece of silliness is for LindaGHill’s #SoCs.
