Daily Prompts- Mind your language

Can you please be a bit more clear

Your use of grandiloquent words

And juggernaut phrases may make you seem

More in control of this sticky situation

But the fact is that using exotic language

Does not make it easier for others to understand you

It’s your long lost love, the desire to impress

You pet hobby to depress the pretentious by words

Lobbying words like tennis balls into the air

Whoops, there you go again with high sounding words

For the umpteenth time dear sir, please be clear!

Daily Prompts- Selling pitch

I am not going to tout to you

But rather respectfully ask

Can you come visit my blog

And check out my various posts

Some have pizzazz and a little flair

Others are just rants against the head honcho

I have been spending a lot of time and effort here

And I am hoping that with your kind attention

We can make a success of this endeavor, together

It may be the ladder that will help me climb

High in the blogosphere’s popularity

Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday- 1 August 2020

Linda is the host of Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “more.” Start your post with the word “more.” Enjoy!

~*~

More and more people

Everywhere I see, yet some more
I begin to doubt my sanity the more I see

And yet, here they are, perfectly visible to everyone, not only me

What are you talking about, you can say

Have I bamboozled you with my strange ranting

Instead of more people being careful and cautious

I see more of them without care and precautions

Wandering about without a thought in their heads

Going mask-less, more and more!

Crimson Creative Challenge # 90- Windmills

Crispina is the host of Crimson Creative Challenge

CCC#90

~*~

My mind is flighty

Like a butterfly, it flits

From one thought to another

Sometimes I think that I have

Windmills going in my head

That blow my thought hither and yon

If you want to hold a long conversation with me

It’s possible that in between that dialogue

I would utter irrelevant and unconnected observations

And then you might agree with me that

I do have windmills in my head!

Thursday Inspiration- Leave

Paula is the host of Thursday Inspiration

This week’s theme is leave and the picture is below. Here is the song snippet from “If You Leave Me Now,” a 1976 song from Chicago.

If you leave me now you’ll take away the biggest part of me
No baby please don’t go
And if you leave me now you’ll take away the very heart of me
No baby please don’t go, no I just want you to stay

Suitcase full of flowers

~*~

I’m going to pack my bag and leave soon

Home is calling me and I am exited to be going

The journey is long and tiring but I’m going home

I won’t mind the hardship because I’m going home

( For reference, check my SoCS post)

Daily Prompts- Facelift

She averts her face coyly

I am too old for you to smicker at

It’s just this recent project of mine

That has led you to a false notion

This facelift makes me look far younger

Than my years and so you think, I am

Do reserve your passion and ardor

For someone your own age young man

This arbitrary and sudden passion is quite misplaced

I am old enough to be your grandmother

In response to the following prompts;

Reserve

Use above image as inspiration for a poem or short story

“Take your hand out of the candy jar and step back real slow!”

“But….. “spluttered Noah, “I wasn’t doing anything wrong”

“You were trying to steal the candy from a baby and everyone knows how wrong that is”

“I was just taking a few, I was hungry”

“That’s what they all say when caught in the act!”

Daily Prompts- Teaching Grandma

He is a sweet boy

Precocious for his age

Knows far more about computers

Than I can ever hope to equal

He is always trying to educate me

I listen keenly, tuning in to all the technical lingo

Sometimes incurring his rightful indignation

When I fail to grasp a finer technical point

We move to our own space till he is over the mad

Something would tickle his funny bone and he would smile again

Back to teaching grandma computers again
