The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS May 23/2020

ShelleyKupa

Its Saturday and time for LindaGHill’s #SoCs, this week Linda gave us this prompt. “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ch.” Find a word that starts with “ch” and use it as your prompt word. Bonus points if you start your post with that word. Enjoy!

I have chosen to write an Acrostic Nonet entitled Changeling. Mind you there are ten letters in changeling and as I wanted to write a Nonet and not an Etheree I repeated the five syllable line twice…Poetic licence.

Charlotte and Charles so desired a child

Heaven and Earth they would of moved

All types of potions were tried

Never did they conceed

Glady they tried spells

Each one much stronger

Long lost magic

It worked by

Nature’s

Grace.

Cavernous, deeply dark

All stalactites and stalagmites

Vaults so deep, never seen

Eternal entrance to the void

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS May 2/2020

It’s Saturday again and time for LindaGHill’s Saturday Stream of Consciousness.”Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “directions.” Find a household cleaner/bottle of shampoo/something in the freezer/anything you can find with instructions on it, then copy down a single direction (just one) on how to use/cook/etc. your chosen thing, and make it the first line or word of your post. Then keep writing whatever comes out. Have fun!

I chose a bottle of Domestos, (Bleach).

Ingestion. Seek medical help. Now we should all be aware that bleach inside the body is very dangerous. It is corrosive and will burn and cause massive damage.

So why at a news conference the other week did President Trump surprised nearly everyone when he suggested using powerful cleaning agents, through an injection, as a possible Covid-19 cure.

Yes, indeed he did, but hold on, apparently, he later said it was “scarcasm” whit? I now see why my father always said scarcasm is the lowest form of whit.

That’s all folks

Valediction, the action of saying goodbye or farewell. It’s a not often used word though that does not make it any less valid no to my mind it is a melodic word. It comes from the Latin Vale Dicere literally to say farewell.

People make valedictory speeches, leaving jobs or graduation but we use valediction daily when we part, go to school, working shopping, leave the house our casual, see ya, tar-ra, laters, goodbye they are all valedictory statements.

We use Valediction at weddings, father and mother to daughter or son, at funerals to loved ones and friends though obviously the valediction varies.

Anyway I think it is a beautiful word and that is why I chose it. Shall we have a valedictory song?

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS April 18/2020

I am late doing my SoCs but as my dad would of said better late than never.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “practice/practise.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

2019-2020 SoCS Badge by Shelley! 

So what is the difference between practice and practise. They sound the same and even look similar (except that one is spelled with a “c” and the other with an “s”) but their meanings are different. The word “practice” is a noun, it refers to an act itself, not who is doing it. On the other hand, practise is a verb meaning ‘do something repeatedly to improve one skill’.

In the USA you only use practice for a verb or a noun but here in the UK we use practice as a noun and practise as a verb.

So I go to the Dr’s or Dental practice but a Dr or Dentist practise their skills.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS April 11/2020

Well it’s Saturday again and time for Stream of Consciousness Saturday brought to us by the lovely Linda G Hill. Linda has told us :Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “joint.” Use it as a noun, an adjective, or a verb–use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

SoCs Badge by Shelley! 

Well now if we were living in normal times this post could be a joint effort but we are not allowed to have friends or anyone, ( unless we live with them) sitting at the same table. But, hang on this global pandemic should be fought a a worldwide joint effort ( just so long as every one stays ten metres apart).

Joint is a strange word and means more than one thing, it can be a body part, knee, ankle, hip, shoulder,elbow, fingers,knuckles, toes. Also it can be a meeting place like a dancehall, club, pub, bar we’d call it a swinging joint, a quiet joint, a dodgy join but they will all be closed right now and we can’t go.

Then there are carpentry joints collectively they are called joinery but they are joints. here are some of the types, butt, lap, bridle,mitre,box, dowel, dove tail, tongue and groove, groove, dado, mortise and tenon, birdsmouth, cross lap, splice. Who’d of thought there were so many? not me.

You can have joint a present or a joint presentation 😉, joint is a good and varied word.

Well I am all out of time and imagination so let’s fall back on verse. An Acrostic poem entitled Joint.

Juxtaposition

Opens up

Interlacings

Normal, natural

Togetherness

See how small the scratch is , it was yellow by then and it’s a poisoned joint.

The picture above is from when I got Sepsis last year in the knuckle joint.

Descending deeply

Ever lower into black

Eternally falling

Powerless to escape the deep.

So here we are Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Now when I first looked at the prompt yesterday I was sitting next to the coffee table, and on it there were a myriad of things. A glass bowl, a bouquet of flowers, place mats from Spain, coffee cup, a box of tissues and the phone.

It is a beautiful table, hand made in Scandinavia, it has a beautiful lustre to it. We have had this table for sixteen years, yet to my eyes it looks brand new.

It’s Saturday and time for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Here is Our Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “welcome.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

Shelley Krupa

Your welcome, is a polite response to someone who you have said thank you to. It’s a nice was of putting people at their ease. Eg: ” Thank you for the lift” “No worries your welcome”.

Often its the first thing you say to people who visit your house, “Welcome, do come in” or “Welcome home” You can also have a welcoming atmosphere, fire, greeting.

Welcome

We are so pleased to see you

Even though you are late

Long time no see it true

Come in theres a welcoming fire in the grate

Oh! We have missed you so much

Many years have passed

Everyone is so pleased to see you.

******

Be safe, be well and be happy.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Feb. 15/2020. Cheek.

It’s Saturday again and it’s time LindaGHill’s #SoCs, she saidYour Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “cheek.” Use it as a noun or a verb. Enjoy!”

Image from here

“What a bloody cheek” she shouted as the man in the BMW cut her up on the inside! I’m not having that she thought to herself. Putting her foot down on the axcellorater she sped past him and cut in right in front of him making him put on his brakes.

“Cheeky mare” he muttered, as he slowed up sharply. He pushed his hand down on the horn and smiled, “That’ll make her jump”

It did, but it also made her angry and she cursed him, he’s got the cheek of the devil she thought to herself.

At that moment his phone rang , like a fool he he answered it as he shot past her again as it began to rain. The dry road soon became slippery. Just then as she sped up again the lorry came over the brow of the hill.

They both saw it, she lost control at exactly the same time as he did the BMW hit her Audi knocking it into the path of the juggernaut something on the road made the BMW spin into back of the Audi.

After the noise of the crash, there was silence, total silence. The lorry driver was stunned , after he had rung the police he slowly climbed down from his cab and approached the mangled metal that was all that was left of the two cars.

The paramedics were shocked by the mess of metal that had been two cars. Both drivers were dead, both had their mobiles in their hands. The lorry driver was in shock. The driver of BMW was unrecognisable lost in the mangled metal. The woman on the other hand was totally unmarked apart from a bloody cheek!
