Badge by Shelley Krupa.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “-tion.” Find a word that ends with “tion.” Bonus points if you start your post with it. Have fun!

Precipitation, is a word I have always loved the sound of. I have always heard poetry in the pronunciation of it. What is precipitation? It is water made in clouds that falls to the ground as rain, snow or hail. As a child I used to listen to the weather forecast on the radio and wonder what this mystical precipitation was.

I would wait with great anticipation for it to arrive especially if it was snow. As a child I loved snow, I liked the look and feel of it. Nowadays I am not so excited when I look the weather up on my phone and I see the caption precipitation, because I don’t like either having to stay indoors or get wet!

Precipitation
Can cause such consternation
Snow, rain and hail can halt the nation.
Bringing floods, empty roads and stations.
It can can cause such complication.
A sudden bout could stop a conflagration.
So just for your information
There’s two sides to precipitation.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “collar.” Use it as a verb, a noun, or metaphorically. Bonus points for using it in all three ways! Enjoy!

Now there’s the ambiguous Dog Collar, that can mean a collar for a dog or a colour for for a vicar or priest. So that is our noun.

Or we could go down the police line , so we would get a verb. To collar, to arrest someone for a criminal act, you can say you felt someone’s collar, that is also an arrest! Also the past tense ” he collared the suspect.

There is also the good old fashioned collar on, a shirt a dress a coat. That like the top paragraph is a noun.

And here a metaphorical Tanka.

Tight around her neck

Like a noose sapping her air

Her badge of office

At births, deaths and marriages

It was always on there on show.

I think that fulfills the prompt .

This silliness was brought to you for LindaGHill’s Saturday Stream of Consciousness.

There is a wardrobe in the spare room and the bottom of it is filled with photos. Weddings, holidays, parties, funerals, days out, parents, grandparents, grandchildren, friends, families , funerals, happy days and desparate days 💜

All life is here. An Acrostic Poem

Pleasing memories linger
Hopefully they multiply and evolve
One triggers this another that.
Time is caught in a feathered cap.
Onwards they march waking feelings as they
Go, swelling with captured love.
Repeating what has gone before
A silly face here a false smile
Placating hidden fears
Hoping against hope for better years
Sound not needed, silent pictures

Stream of Consciousness Saturday. August 22nd 2020 Brush.

Good morning, it is Saturday and time for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This week’s prompt for us to make fast and loose with is : Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “brush.” Use it as a noun, a verb, or an idiom. Have fun!

It’s 7.20am and I have been awake over an hour, looking out towards the trees opposite I try to brush the cobwebs out of my head. They are very stubborn cobwebs they do not want to be brushed!

So many thoughts are swirling around in my head not many happy thoughts in there though! Can I , should I even, brush them under the carpet. I could do that it’s the easiest way to deal with problems just brush them aside, pretend all is well.

No, it’s no good even though I don’t feel up to it I must 🎶dust myself off, brush myself down and start all over again 🎶. Yesterday 49years ago I married the love of my life yes we jumped the brush.

So even though I am tired and not being well is getting me down, and hubby is feeling down coping with his mother’s estate and his awkward siblings we must brush everything aside and just get on with life.

Okay let’s pick up life’s paint brush and create our own canvas, let’s make each brush stroke count. Like the dog brushing past my legs, the squirrel in the trees opposite with his brush tail, we’ll grab the brush and sweep up the pieces.

That’s enough I am slipping in to Madness here so that it for this week folks! I am not giving you the brush off.

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

Spot the difference, when I was a little girl I love to do those puzzles that showed two apparently identical pictures, they had suttel differences.

Image from Wikipedia.

Example of a spot the difference puzzle. There are 15 differences between the two pictures. Go on have a go you know you want to.

This short but sweet #SoCs was brought to you care of LindaGHill.
