The Sunday Whirl- Wordle 439

BWarren is the host of The Sunday Whirl


Her slim form was wrapped in a black cloak. It prevented the evening chill to reach her body. The hood covered her hair except a few tendrils which has escaped. An owl flew overhead and it’s cry startled her. But the wait was almost over, as she espied the yellow wolf eyes staring at her from the bushes. She gave a merry laugh and ran towards it. The wolf gradually changed its form and soon a handsome dark man came forward with a swagger to embrace her. They only got the chance to see each other when the moon was full. They were together till the sun up. Now she will wait a month till next full moon to satisfy the itch to meet her beloved.




Daily Prompts- Gimme some tea!

A tiring trip to the mall

Ends in fatigue and aching feet

Gimme a cup of sweet strong tea

Or invite me to nap on your couch

I know it’s an egregious abuse of your hospitality

But my needs make me selfish and demanding

Shed some light on the reason for which

We scour the shops to find the best bargains

If I could torch all my ambitions to be

The best-dressed lady of my acquaintance

I could just count my zzzz and slumber on the mat

And never head to a store or mall again


In response to the following prompts;


Tea, Nap, Mat










More About Me # 13

Are you ageing gracefully?

I am not aging at all. In my mind I am still young so that means I am getting younger day by day. I like wearing bright colors, trendy clothes. I listen to the pop the young generation is listing to. But in my choice of food, I am completely grown up. I try to eat healthy. No fast food, pizzas or ice cream for me!

But seriously, age is a number you have assigned to yourself. I try to feel as I am, not as I should according to my age.

When younger than you are now, did you ever wish yourself older and did you wonder how well you might be faring?

Nopes! I might have written this before that I live in the moment. When I was younger, I was engrossed in my life real and imaginary and never thought how I will be when older. But one thing that I must say, at a younger age, 58 seemed awfully old. But now that I am 58 since November, it doesn’t seem old at all. I guess as I achieve new milestones in age, they will keep on getting younger.

I will be a young 80 year old!!!

Halve your current age today and thinking back to that younger half age if you were to write a note you other older half of life  as a heads up, what would you say?

At age of 29 I had two kids and expecting my third one. I would tell myself to relax and wait for the time when all the anxieties of young age will smooth out into the sublime acceptance of mature age.

“… after that, he had to make his way all down the parade to the West Pier” – Brighton Rock, Graham Greene.


Rows of tiny shacks at the beach looked deserted. And why not, it was winter after all. The time for him was perfect. He forced open the lock in the nearest hut and hit the stash of drugs there . after that, he had to make his way all down the parade to the West Pier, where he already had a couple of buyers lined up. He wanted to make sure that they weren’t undercover cops before he showed them the merchandise. But he was arrested just outside the door. The cops had him in their sight for a long time.

Thursday Inspiration #36- Boots

Paula is the host of Thursday Inspiration

This week’s theme is boots and the picture is below. Here is the song snippet from “These Boots Are Made for Walking” recorded by Nancy Sinatra in 1966:

These boots are made for walking
And that’s just what they’ll do
One of these days these boots are gonna
Walk all over you

Yellow boots

Image from the Happy Color app.


Don’t step over my heart in your fancy boots

I have feelings too, if you care to remember

This fragile ego is easily shattered so please

Take care not to break it into million pieces

If loving me is not possible for you

Don’t leave me with feelings of hatred for you

What do you see #13 January 20th, 2020.

Mistress of Fire

The Mistress of Fire aimlessly strolls around her courtyard. A slight wind wisps her ghost white hair across her face. Behind her in the distance you can see the glow of her fire light.

Above her you can see the moon with its slight glow shining down upon her.

As always she works at her skill of fire mastery, The Mistress of Fire raises her arm, holds out her hand and fire springs to life on her palm. The fire genyly flutters in the same breeze that is tossing ger hair around;

The Mistress of fire gazes intently at the fire in her hand. She is mesmerized watching the flames flicker. Knowing that at any time she can send a ball of fire at an enemy if necessary.

Do you see what I see?

JusJoJan # 20- Humor

Linda is the host of JusJoJan

Our prompt today is;

Humor, Given to us by Sadje


Thank you, Linda, for choosing my Prompt! 🙏🤗😃


I feel humor is my life-line

It saves my life from dreariness

It brightens my days when I feel overwhelmed

Many painful moments can be driven away

When a light and sparkling comment is heard

In my own way, I have learned that

A smile is a better weapon than a frown or grimace

When we are facing stark realities in life

What do you see # 12- A roundup


With reality abutting on our life

In all it’s sadness and ugliness

The need to keep alive the beauty of dreams

Is the foremost requirement to my mind

I ply these wondrous and sweet images

To keep the hope and optimism alive
