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. 😁

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Nov. 17/18

This week for #SoCs Linda G.Hill has given us the words Roll and Role to use for Stream of Consciousness Saturday.

“Roll with it” from Oasis one of my favourite songs from the Gallagher brothers and their mates.

Not only is it a great song but it reminds me of my middle son and his mates. They were all born circa 1975, as were most of the bands that are known as the Brit Pops.

It’s a call to arms, to roll with the blows of life, to fight for what you want, not letting anyone get in your way. To be the best you can.

My lad used to go to as many Oasis concerts as he possibly could. In his Parker coat, hands clasped behind his back and the rolling dance they all used to do. ( Watch the video you will see the lead singer, arms clasped behind back doing the rolling dance)

It was like he and his mates were in the role of mini Oasis’s !

To finish with here is another Roll with it. This time from Stevie Winwood very much my era and someone I met.

I met Stevie and the rest of the group when he was with the Spenser Davis group, at Top of the Pops at the BBC’S Lime Grove Studios.

That was in my role as Rock Chick, Stevie was five years older than me… In those days it seemed like 30yrs older than me!

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Oct. 20/18 Can.

The Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday this week is Can. Bonus points if you start and or finish with Can. Make of it what you may but enjoy.

Dry can.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday on Sunday.

This little piece of silliness comes to you care of LindaGHill’s #SoCs

This week’s prompt is card. We can use it anyway we like, as long as we have fun.

You can have a business card, or a place card to show you where to sit at a wedding, or an important function.

You can have flash cards to teach someone to read.

Prompt cards to help with a speech.

There are football cards, cigarette cards.

When someone is the life and soul of the party they call them a card. Full of life, full of fun always joking : “Isn’t he a card

If you really want something,a favour, some money, a job, a holiday. People say :”play your cards right” that means do whatever you can to please that person, make them happy flatter them to get what you want.

If something is inevitable, unavoidable they say : “Its on the cards.”

Card, colours and glitter

And a happy rhyme

Really that’s all you need.

Days made special by a card.

#Socs

Stream of Consciousness Saturday on Sunday.

Dominos

There

Standing

In neat rows

Prepared, waiting

For the hand of fate

To set them in motion

Toppling them out of control

Like ten pins hit by a giant bowel

In this life we are the Dominos

There is no escape that’s just how it goes.

The above Etheree was brought to you, extremely late, as part of LindaGHill’s #SoCs. This week’s prompt was DOM. To be used as a suffix,prefix or part of a word. You choose you enjoy.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Sept. 22/18

This is my entry for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday.

#SoCs

Flowery words can brighten any situation but have they any substance.

I bought you a bunch of flowers

The label said they had special powers.

But what was I to do

I thought the label was true.

Sadly the special flowers died

You were so upset you cried!

I went to the market and bought a pound of flour.

I set to work and baked a cake within an hour.

It was the bestest cake you’ve ever seen.

It cheered you up like a dream.

The cake was made from magic flour.

To hell with Magic Power Flowers!
