Silence : Acrostic Poem

Silence is golden, it can cut you like a knife.

It can be your down fall or even save your life.

Listening to silence can be the hardest thing to

Earsplitting silence can easily deafen you.

No silent exit , leave on a note of discord

Cover your ears to soundless applause.

Earth shattering peace, like all things has its flaws.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS May 4/19.

Hello it’s Saturday morning and time for LindaGHill’s Saturday Stream of Consciousness. Our Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “fall from the sky.” Write about anything that falls from the sky–real, imagined, or idiomatic. Have fun!

They fell from the sky. At the beginning just a few. No one really noticed at first, because they were not affected.

It was noticed finally, this strange phenomenon, after a week or two. The feathers were everywhere. Covering lakes and rivers and finally the seas.

Machinery ground to a halt, planes , cars and trains crashed. The world fell silent. Governments panicked and brought out Draconian laws to keep the peace.

We thought it could get no worse, no transport of any sort, everything was effected. Nothing could function, people began to starve. Not just the poor those with money and power suffered too.

Then when we thought it could get no worse the angels fell from the sky.

Slipstream

*******

Soar

Lapwing

Into your

Plodding wing beat

Steady, uneven

Turning and rising high

Riding the thermals into

Eternity among the clouds

Angels watch your slow un rhythmic beat

My soul yearns to ride within your slipstream.

This is part of #SoCs.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Fab.

LindaGHill said. Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “fab.” Use it as a word or find a word beginning with “fab.” As always, use any way you’d like. Have fun!

Fabulously an Acrostic Poem

Full of promise full of life

Always running full of hype

Blessed with memories and joy

Unisex? Girl or boy

Little things we hold so dear

Out of this world far and near

Unending fun and fashion sense

Sing the old songs sing the new

Living happy not in fear

You and me fab and gear.

And now for something completely different.

After the second world war, due to heavy bombing there was an acute shortage of housing. Here in the UK the solution was envisaged by war-time prime minister Winston Churchill in March 1944, and legally outlined in the Housing (Temporary Accommodation) Act 1944.

Quickly built homes for all those made homeless by the Blitz, they were the perfect solution to the post war problem . The were single story prefabricated homes. The populous affectionately called them the prefab.

Sole responsibility for purgatory

Angel Marge basked in the glory

Of  those  words uttered by St Peter

A new challenge  she  though…it won’t defeat her.

So she  tidied up the space and  put  new rules in place

To meet the  new souls she  took on some  extra grace.

Opening up on her first morning

She  was amazed  at  the number of  souls towards her  swarming

Soon the  enormity of the task,in her mind was dawning .

She needed help to cope with so many lost souls  arriving

Quickly  she employed angel staff , to help with client reviving.

St Peter was impressed

At how quickly  problems  she addressed.

Every single hapless soul

She sorted  out  and  helped  them reach  their goal.

Yes Angel Marge embraced  her role

Loving  and  caring for  each and  every  soul.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS March 2/19 : Celestial.

Celestial of the stars, we are and eventually to the stars we will return. I find this is such a wonderful and calming thought. I have always yearned to travel the stars. Space and all it entails have always been my dream. Well it will not be my destiny, I was born too early. So I take comfort in the fact that when I die I shall return to the stars and be celestial. That’s the explanation now here is an Acrostic Nonet.

Celestial of the stars we are

Eternal, boundless essence star

Life for us is but a blink

Earthbound yet on the brink

Straining to venture

To our true home

In pure hope

Almost

Life.

This week our Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “cele-.” Find a word that starts with or contains “cele” and use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Critic(al)

This is part of LindaGHill’s #SoCs.

Our Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “critic(al).” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

Now it is critical that you understand that this sword held aloft here is not Excalibur. I have to say if I am critically on honest. The arm is too thick and masculine to belong to the lady of the lake. While I am being honest the sword itself looks too short and squat to be Excalibur.

Yet here we have an arm extended out of a lonely lake holding a sword aloft.

There is no magical island of Avalon, no Knights or damsels in distress. Just traffic bombing along a busy road, the other side of a wooden fence.

No just a critical Ruby sniffing around. Please don’t be a critic it might not be perfect but it was a lovely walk.

A Critical Acrostic Poem

Can you honestly say it’s the best

Rigourously, honestly the best

Is it truly the best you can do

To be honest I am not impressed

In my opinion, it is not good

Critically honest it’s not all that .

Actually be honest it’s rubbish

Look, don’t blame me, the critic.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Feb. 16/19 Yawn

Well ten minutes ago I had a brilliant idea for #SoCs. Then I got distracted by some some beautiful posts in my reader and here I am clueless as to what this world changing post was about!pro

Well it most definitely was something to do with a yawn. How do I remember that. Easy because this week Linda G.Hill said : ” Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “yawn.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the word “yawn,” when you sit down to write your post. Enjoy!”

Now our Ruby yawns a lot, she yawns if she feels someone or something is invading her space, or if she is confused or bored and of course she yawns if she is tired.

Us humans yawn when tired, stressed or lacking oxygen. have you ever yawned and felt your jaw lock… oh my that can be so painful! Also if one person in a room yawns it is very  catching and everyone in  the room yawns. Now as you can see I am rambling on here and it is no doubt very boring. Very much unlike the wonderful post I was going to write had it escaped my brain and vanished into the either never to be seen again.

To save further embarrassment I have  added s to Yawn and  written an Acrostic Tanka.

Yawn

Yes we have to yawn

All of us as soon as born

Will know how to yawn

No one is exempt no one

So cover your mouth and yawn.

The Friday Reminder for SoCS & JusJoJan 2019 Daily Prompt – Jan. 5th

Our prompt from LindaGHill for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “sap/sep/sip/sop/sup.” Use one or all of these words or find a word that contains them, but most of all, have fun! Wondering what to do with “sep”? This is interesting: https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=SEP Enjoy!


Sap rising means many things like goodness coming to the for, new beginnings but the literal meaning of the word refers to the life fluid of a tree,plant or animal (including humans). It can refer to strong feelings of love,lust, anger eg: he/she could feel the sap rising or he/she felt the sap draining out.

Looking at sip,sup and sop I am struck by the fact that they too refer to liquid or liquor. To sip a drink, to sup a drink ( old English version of sip) come to mind. Also and old English term is sop which refers to a drunkard,or alcoholic. As in, drunken old sop he had supped enough ale to sink a battleship. Or again in he could of sipped too much ale🤔.

That leaves us with sep now Linda found us an interesting meaning for that, to choose not to see a problem. Well people who sip and sup too much alcohol become a sop, they loose all their sap and the problem they have with drink to them is a sep.

Sep is also short for my special month September .

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Dec. 29/18

This is my entry for Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Hosted by LindaGHill.

This week, the last #SoCs of this year Linda has said we should : Either ask someone in the room with you to give you a word prompt or turn on the TV or the Radio and pick a word from the first sentence you hear.

Well I was sitting in the living room with two friends and hubby. I asked my friend Anne for a prompt word. Her immediate reply was Productive.

Productive, yes that is how you could describe today so far. So far I have cleaned most of the house, washed floors, hoovered and dusted, put the washing on and had a shower.

That is quite productive in its own right was but it is so pointless really. What with Ruby in and out of the kitchen, hubby attacking the back gate with a plane and the damp dull weather the house will be dusty, and dirty in no time …

Hubby has been productive too he has walked Ruby, been to the bottle bank, and as I have already said he is fixing the back garden gate.

Well although this post is entitled Productive I am not feeling it at all. So there you go this piece of dribble is brought to you care of #SoCs. Happy weekend everyone.💜💜💜💜💜

Now look hubby and Ruby sweeping up now I do call that productive. 😁
