Daily Prompts -An uncomfortable Prediction

Seeing in the crystal ball, the crone cackled

I have a Prediction for you my lovely

The full moon this month will see you in

A spot of trouble I think that the comfort

Of your existence will be pitched in turmoil

He took out a few gold coins to grease her Palm

Noticing the imperciptible change in her demeanor

Her smile became more welcoming, the tone less threatening

But, she says, you will meet a beauty in the lobby outside

She will hold the key to your well-being in her hands

Will provide you the help to combat these challenges

Just a few more gold coins and your bad luck will disappear

I will personally take care and remove the curse lurking

He surpassed his smile and said cheekily, I will wait outside for you

In response to the following prompts;


Pitch, Comfort, Surf

MLMM- Tale Weaver # 249 – Holiday – 14th November

Michael is the host of Tale Weaver.



Pack your bags and take a break

A holiday is long overdue so let’s plan

Book a flight and the accommodation

But first, decide where to go

Should it be a secluded getaway

Deep in the mountains, a hut

Away from the crowd, just you and me

Or should we head for an island

Relaxing on the sandy beach getting a tan

Do you fancy a trip to explore the historic sites

Taking our hardhats, torches and ancient maps

Why not go on a shopping extravaganza someplace

Posh and trendy, where we can satisfy our aesthetic senses

The choices are too many and decision hard to make

We will go next year, right now I need a break

All this thinking and planning is hard work

I am going to take a nap in the lounge


The Challenge;

This week some good friends are heading off on a holiday through Europe.

So our task is to write a holiday story. It could be a past holiday, a present holiday or even a dream holiday to some place or location you dream about visiting.

Go where the prompt takes you and have fun.

Thursday Inspiration # 30 – River flowing

Paula is the host of Thursday Inspiration

Welcome to Thursday Inspiration!

This week’s theme is river and the picture is below. Here is the song snippet from “The River Cried” recorded by Patty Smyth in 1987:

And the river cried ’cause I lost your love
The river cried, oh
The river cried for my lonely soul
The river cried

Raccoon on a branch in the river

Image credit to the Happy Color app.


The following river flows with grace

Grace and majesty captured in waves

Waves crashing on the rocky bed in foam

Foam rising in peaks and reflecting colors

Colors of the simmering sunlight in rainbows

Rainbows dancing along the running water

Water splashing and crashing along the banks

Bank of the river thick with green vegetation

Vegetation rich and lush fed by the flowing river


(Trying my hand at loop poetry)

Stream of Consciousness Saturday 16 November- 2019 – My Dreams

Linda is the host of Stream of consciousness Saturday

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “dream.” Use it as a noun or a verb; use any way you’d like. Enjoy!

2019-2020 SoCS Badge by Shelley! https://www.quaintrevival.com/


I had a dream

I dreamt that I was in

A world where we loved

Each other irrespective of

How we looked and spoke

The cooler of skin didn’t matter

Race and ethnicity was irrelevant

I wish that this dream that I dream

That I share with millions others

Becomes a reality in my lifetime




Daily Prompts- Snuggles!

On her birthday, she got an adorable gift

A little puppy that she decided to call Snuggles

With big brown eyes that would melt your heart

He immediately took the status of family favorite

Soon he held the position of power in the household

It wasn’t prudent to deny him a treat or to say no to a demand

The blame for spoiling him rested on the incompetent training

Only little Jenny knew the trick; not to accommodate his every whim

In response to the following prompts;


Snuggle, Seat, Melt

Fandango Friday Flashback/What was I thinking 🤔!

I write this post exactly one year ago, on 15th November 2018.

I am sharing it here today as a part of;

Fandango Friday Flashback.

Have you ever lost the thread and wondered aloud what was I thinking just now?

Is your mind like mine, jumping from one thought to another in a nanosecond, often unrelated to each other.

I would forget what I want to recall and it would pop-up in my thoughts after an interval, unbidden.

A song I heard a snatch of or a face I saw for a bit and now my brain is busy trying to work out what and who! And a day after tomorrow or yesterday past, it is all going to come back to me without an effort.

I have lost my keys or the password of my account, and no matter how hard I try to find it, I cannot. Even though when I had thought of the hiding place, I was thinking that it’s so easy, I won’t forget ever. Or that the password is extra secure but not difficult to remember at all.

Why does it seem so simple and gets so hard to control my thoughts and remember it all?

Have you ever lost the thread and wondered aloud, what was I thinking just now?

Let me know if that happens to you as well!

Waiting for your comments and feedback.





Crimson Creative Challenge # 53- Escape

Crispina is the host of Crimson Creative Challenge.



Standing on the pier I have the urgent desire

To step in my boat and sail far far away

To places unknown, leaving all the stress behind

To escape what threatens to destroy my peace

Can I find a safe harbor away from the storm

That I feel looming large on my horizon?
