The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS June 29/19

LindaGHill said “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “for/fore/four.” Use one, use ’em all, use ’em any way you want. Enjoy!”

My middle son plays a lot of golf and he plays very well to, if I say so myself. So I went with a golfing theme.

Today’s #SoCs is a little Golfing Nonet. Image from Pixabay

Before you take that first shot shout fore

Don’t blindly let your golf ball soar

When using a five or four

Don’t make someone’s head sore

So for goodness sake

Give everyone

A safe break

Shout out

Fore

Colleen’s 2019 WeeklyTanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge No. 131 SynonymsOnly

Look who’s back!

Yes at last our Fairy Queen of the synonyms is back. Safely ensconced in Arizona Colleen is ready to set us our Weekly Tuesday Tanka Challenge you can join in here.. It doesn’t have to be a Tanka though as long as it is a poem governed by syllables.

Today’s words to use synonymously are Beginning & Consume.

I have chosen to do a Nonet, one of my favourite forms of poetry.

In the beginning.

When it all started there were just two

All sparkly, wonderful and new.

They had eyes for eachother

Such joys to discover

Snake then wriggled in

Try this apple

It’s good, she

Ate, too

Late.

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 126, “Poet’s Choice of Words”

It’s the first Tuesday of the month and that means we can choose our own words and there is no need to use synonyms .

I have chosen to do a Nonet today in honour of the coming spring. My two words are Spring and Hope.

Rules here

Hope springs eternal this time of year.

Winter lingers but have no fear

New life awaits to burst forth

Chill winds hover from north

Tiny buds grow

White, blue, golden

Emboldened

Spring is

Hope.

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.

Scary October 3

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 a Nonet.

Autumn mists wraps round early mornings

Days grow short as the year slips by

Breezes make leaves want to fly

Bonfire smoke sends warnings

Halloween is near

Dark spirits bring fear

The scary

Seasons

Here.

Thursday photo prompt: Circle #writephoto

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

Circle of Stone

Just another monochrome day break.

We took the path from the big lake.

Cold and silent no bird calls

In fear I stumble, fall

Hands lift me up high

Cold stone alter

Where I lie

Now I

Die.

Thursday photo prompt: Summit #writephoto

This is my entry for Sue Vincent of Daily Echo‘s #writephoto.

Rules and Pingback Here

The Summit. A Nonet.

Heart fit to bust as I near the top

Lungs heave in and out fit to bust

The sky’s grey and forbidding

But life is for living

I reach the summit

And see the view

All is revealed

I step

Through.

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

Stream of Consciousness Saturday. 14/4/2018.

LindaGHill of A Life in Progress has given us Mom for this week Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. We can use it as a word or part of a word, but we must have fun.

Rules and Pingback Here

Matrimony

Yesterday I went to the wedding of one of my niece’s. Matramony is the old fashioned word for marriage. To my mind the state of matrimony is far more important than the actual wedding. Being married means loving your partner, being their friend being ready to do whatever is needed to keep each other happy and healthy, to look after eachother.

The matrimonial day can be very expensive meaning all parties involved shelling out a lot of money! Yet with thought and a little thrift the most beautiful and memorable day be achieved.

So I hope my lovely niece and her hubby will have their whole lives full of Matrimonial Bliss.

A Nonet to J&J

Yesterday was just the beginning

Your cup of love is just brimming

Your path is set together

Step by step forever

Remember this day

In love please stay

God keep you

Both true

Blessed.

#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.
