Daily Prompts- What was it!

Is this a cherub or a gargoyle on the rooftop?

It is Halloween and out of habitude we imagine

All things scary and frightening will happen tonight

Our minds are swamped with the vision of ghosts and witches

When they wait in the dark of the night all ready

To finagle us out of our peace of mind and disturb

The absolute faith we have in the broad sunlight

That ghouls and ghosts only exist in stories and works of fiction

But who knows the truth……

What is going on in the night?

Habitude

Daily Prompts- Some obscure words

Wordsmiths are urging us to use recondite words

What’s that you ask; it means obscure words

If you don’t know the meaning of a word, it’s difficult

To find appropriate usage for these words

Writers show great resolve and hardihood

When they give in to the urges of fulfilling these expectations

Sometimes it feels like you’re getting a jab of a needle

The scuttlebutt has it that this is prompted by

A desire to test our knowledge and educate us further

In response to the following prompts;

YDWP;

Recondite

3TC;

Inoculate, Needle, Jab

Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday- 17 October’20

Linda is the host of Stream of Consciousness Saturday

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “a word you have to look up.” We all have words we can never spell. Use one of yours in your post and let that word drive your stream of consciousness where ever it goes. Have fun!

~*~*~*~

I rely on autocorrect for correcting my spellings. They are truly bad!

Let’s start with the title of this post; Stream of Consciousness Saturday!

If my “smart” phone doesn’t immediately prompt me with the whole of the title, I am lost. How to spell consciousness? Actually, I have difficulty with words that have a c and a s together. I flounder and have to try multiple combinations of them to get to the right spelling. One thing that helps me is if the word is not spelled correctly, it doesn’t looks right to me and I get busy trying to make it right. If I weren’t typing out my post on my phone, which apparently is smarter than me, I don’t think I would be posting so many posts a day. It probably would take me hours to write one post!

Another big help is the free version of Grammarly which tries to correct my grammar. It has no appreciation of poetry so it usually rejects my poetic phrases. But I still go on with them.

Me; I am practical, don’t believe in the supernatural!

Her; are you sure? Because there are many ways one can experience supernatural.

Me; I don’t believe that there are any other beings than the ones that we see. 

Her; I think if you look carefully, you’ll see much more than what meets the eyes.

Me; okay I am looking carefully! What do you want me to see? Hey, where have you gone!!!

A disembodied laugh echoes in the room which is now empty except me.

Daily Prompts- Piqued

The atrocious behavior of the politicians

Is enough to pique any person into a state of vexation

They spew vitriol against anybody opposing their views

Creating a ruckus whenever they don’t have an answer

I am boycotting them and their campaigns till they would

Vamp their style, reform their speech and be a little bit polite

Till then I will stand on the other end of the street

And wave them a hearty goodbye!

YDWP;

Atrocious

Street, Busker, Vamp

I slip and slide

I trip and fall

Never it did any good

For me to see where I was stepping

Hardly anyplace was ever left that didn’t

Witness my fall, my embarrassment

But I get up, dust myself

And carry on as if

Nothing happened

Daily Prompts- I want it too!

A ferocious meowing disrupted the silence

A toffee pudding sitting on the ledge smelled too inviting

A meow sounded like a wow, uttered in admiration

The silent evening amplifying the sound of squabbling

Please please girls calm down, you both will get your share

Just give me a moment of peace and quiet to finish my dinner

What you want my rhubarb crumble too?

Why don’t you take my skim milk latte while you’re at it!

Ferocious

42 Words- Zombies

Deb Whitman is the host of 42 Words

ZOMBIES

Now I suspect there may be a few people who are hesitant to wander down this path but when you think about it, its only 42 words and I’m sure you can come up with an idea or two.

It doesn’t have to be the zombie apocalypse, perhaps someone becomes a zombie after a hard week at work, perhaps its a song, a street name, or even a chicken dance.  You get my drift here, let the imagination flow and see when it takes you.

<^><^><^>

They were all sitting there. Blank faces eyes fixed and staring ahead. The sight sent a chill down my spine. I tried sneaking past them quietly but one of them saw me.

I want food, mom, said one of the TV zombies
