My elusive flower

The beauty of this natural wonder

Is elusive and charming

I don’t pick it up from where it blooms

Just looking at its delicate petals from afar

It brightens up my day, saying a very good morning!

The blue moon

The blue moon, comes in the sky

Not so often that you grow weary

But it is not a tool of trickery I tell you

When it rises in the sky, it is to implement

The one universal law of physical impossibility

That we think can never be but it surely is

That it takes all the blue cheese in the world to make it happen

Tale Weaver #218- Making sense out of nonsense

This week it’s back to nonsense. Your task is to write a story in which you describe your meaning of the word woklecockle. It’s a noun so it probably needs to be the name of a person, place or thing.

Mr Woklecockle was a very unpopular and unpleasant person. People generally avoided him or at least tried to. He had a host of weird habits that attributed to his unpopularity. For one he was so very inquisitive. He loved to barge into the personal affairs and space of people around him. Dispersing unsolicited and unwanted advice to all and sundry. His most unattractive personality trait was to visit people when they were having a party. This earned him the title of a party pooper!

Then one day he disappeared. People were initially very relieved that they didn’t had to duck out of sight when they spotted him coming or didn’t had to pretend to be away from home when he rang their door bell. But since they were a nice bunch of people, they started to look for him. But search as they would, high and low, they found no trace of him. To date it’s a mystery, his disappearance. Some people think that he annoyed the wrong sort of people and they took their revenge. Poor MR Woklecockle !

and ne’er was a creature so true and so loyal

Dav Pilkey, God Bless the Gargoyles

High on the roof he sat. Most people thought it was a statue carved in the stone. A relic from olden days. But a few knew that it was very much alive. A creature which came to life in the dead of the night only. It watched over the city. Keeping the criminals at bay. It’s aspect was repelling but it’s nature was true and ne’er was a creature so true and so loyal. When invaders were trying to enter the city by breaching it’s wall, these gargoyles came to its rescue. And a very few people knew the secret.

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #83

Welcome again, and always to this space, which has become sacred to me! You may not see it in the same manner. And why should you? Each of us has our own unique perspective on the world and its interesting contents.

PROMPT

Picture

Perspectives

Can you see what I see

I can see a glass half full, while it’s half empty for you

I see the world through rose colored glasses

While its gray and black in your eyes

Hanging upside down on strings of a puppeteer

I can see things from a totally different perspective

What is falling in your eyes, is rising to the sky in mine

What is out of balance and ungainly from your point of view

Is in perfect harmony and graceful from my angle

How interesting it would be if you could see my side

And I could visualize your stand point

But then the world is not same for any two people

Wednesday Writing Prompt April 17/2019

Devereaux Frazier and Beth Amanda are currently hosting the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge which was started by our star writer Christine Ray. We hope to offer all of you something that will spark your creativity and willingness to participate.

The prompts are designed to be quick challenges that can be written in 10 to 15minutes,  inspire you creatively, are fun, and get everyone interacting.  Please post your response to the prompt in the comments below and show your fellow posters some love and support.  All members of the Go Dog Go community, including Baristas, are welcome to participate.  Feel free to share this post on your own blogs and/or Facebook.

Today’s prompt:  

Use the phrase “fading light” in a poem or piece of prose.

Happy writing!

A stroll in the evening is so refreshing. The sunset, though a sign that the day is ending always evokes a feeling of peace and joyful serenity in my mind. In the fading light, I can see the colors change from a flaming orange to deeper rust which over a few minutes mutates into blues and violets. All the world seems to take a deep breath and pauses for a few seconds as the evening twilight appears. All the tiredness and the tension seeps out of my body and mind, leaving them both relaxed and tension free.

It is indeed a truth that nature is a great healer!

In other words- Rainy Day

Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less
Use the picture and/or the words rainy day as inspiration
Link back to this post

Rainy days are making the world all wet and soggy

We dress in rain coats and carry umbrellas to avoid

Getting soaked in the deluge of showers from above

But looking around the whole of nature is in welcome

Of this tender love pouring down from the sky

Enjoy The Sunshine

 

 

 

Keep on making compromise

Avoid the sunshine and stay indoor

A habit which make you prone to disease

Or pick yourself up from that couch

Tighten the belt and square those shoulders

Make a dash or a run, reminiscent of school days

You have a choice: healthy or lazy

As both cannot go together try you may

Either be active and robust or be lazy, lethargic and in ill-health

Did you notice my new car?

My parents gave it to me as my graduation present.

I want to be more than what they expect of me, to make them proud of me, as I realize how much they have done for me.

Thursday Photo Prompt— Beyond #Writephoto

Sue Vincent has given us this prompt to write;

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a rainbow-rayed sun shinging through the apex of a triangle created by two trees leaning together. The viewer stands on dark, shadowed ground,while the gap through the trees leads to a brilliant green lawn.

All posts will be featured in the round-up on Thursday April 25th at 10am GMT, linking back to the original posts of contributors. Throughout the week I will feature as many of the responses here on the Daily Echo as space allows and (more or less) in the order in which they come in.

I wonder

What lies beyond

This landscape green

These trees thriving

These brilliant sun rays

What lies beyond I often wonder

Can I comprehend tomorrow

Can I see the future yet undecided

Do I want to know really

What lies beyond
