Welcome to my Friday afternoon paint chip prompt. There are other paint chip prompts out there, but they’re very precise in what they ask for. Mine is open ~ write a poem, a story, a memory, whatever you like. Take your inspiration this week from Valspar’s “lavender moon” and/or “twilight mist.” Tag your post Paint Chip Friday, or PCF, if you wish. Prompt will continue until December 31.

🌀🌀🌀

A Lavender moon hung low on the horizon

The purple glow illuminated the landscape

Little animals scurry deep in the shadows

An owl hoots from the top of the barn roof

I sit and enjoy the deepening dusk and its peace

There is a calm here that’s unparalleled in any other place

Me and the moon engage in a conversation meant for us alone

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Bouquet

Eugenia is the host of Eugi’s Weekly Prompt

Your Weekly Prompt – Bouquet – September 16, 2021

🌀🌀🌀

Life is made up of many different colored emotions

A bouquet of funny and sad moments

Smiles and tears both in abundance

Trials and triumphs getting equal share

Don’t expect just a bunch of beautiful roses

Remember that there are thorns hidden there as well

Reena’s Xploration Challenge- Deja vu!

Reena is the host of RXC

PROMPT #199

Here is a piece of dialogue.

“You came back.”

“But we are meeting for the first time.”

It is not necessary that you use the lines in your piece, though you are free to do so.

Imagine the situation and write a piece based on it.

That’s it.

🌀🌀🌀

Recurring dreams of
Meeting her again one day
Looking everywhere in vain
Feeling disappointed



There’s an image in his mind
And any girl he meets has to fit
For him it’s like he has lost
One half of his soul, that he seeks



Finally he saw her one day
Excited he went up to her
So you came back he blurts
Excuse me! Who are you? she said



The moral is clear in this tale
You are looking for your dream
But that person may be dreaming
Of someone else entirely!


🌀🌀🌀

The last lines are inspired by lines from a famous Urdu gazal,

Main khwab hoon kisi aur ka 

Mujhe dektha koi aur hai”

MLMM- Photo Challenge # 384 & Tuesday Writing Prompt – Freedom

Devereaux Frazier and Beth Amanda are currently hosting the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge.

Today’s prompt: “whisper through me

🌀🌀🌀

Captured and confined to a cage

I sit here in this gilded prison

Dreaming of being free one day

To fly high in the sky, to soar with the wind

My soul whispers through me for freedom

Captivity with luxury is still captivity

I long to be unrestricted, sans the comforts

What use is the opulence, if the body is a prisoner

Welcome to my Friday afternoon paint chip prompt. There are other paint chip prompts out there, but they’re very precise in what they ask for. Mine is open ~ write a poem, a story, a memory, whatever you like. Take your inspiration this week from Valspar’s “cowboy boots” and/or “glass slippers.” Tag your post Paint Chip Friday, or PCF, if you wish

🌀🌀🌀

I have no glass slippers, no fairy godmother

No one to wave the magic wand and transform everything

No Prince Charming waiting for me on those palace steps

I have my wits and grit to build my future

I trust myself and don’t rely on others to perform miracles

Whoever is destined to be my hero

Needs to have his head fixed the right way around

He may ride a horse or wear cowboy boots

But needs to be in tune with my reality

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Sustain

Eugenia is the host of Eugi’s Weekly Prompt

“There must be a better way to make the things we want, a way that doesn’t spoil the sky, or the rain or the land” By Paul McCartney

Your Weekly Prompt – Sustain – September 9, 2021

➰➰➰

What sustains me through my day to day life?

Everyday, there are ups and downs in my life

Like everyone else I have the highs and lows


I have found something solid to hang on to


When I am going through a rough patch or even


When things look bright and maybe too good to be true


My faith is my anchor that stays my ship in storms


And lets me enjoy the calm water without worry


It is my rock and my shelter



It is what makes me………..me

Crimson Creative Challenge- A storm is coming

Crispina is the host of Crimson Creative Challenge

Welcome to my weekly challenge—open to all—just for FUN, FUN, FUN

➰➰➰

A storm is brewing on the horizon

Clouds accumulating dark and threatening

Batten down the hatches, secure the property

Be prepared, for you got enough warning

Ignoring the signs of turbulence heading your way

That will catch you in a state of disarray

Won’t you want to be ready when trouble comes knocking?

➰➰➰

Broken down ceiling, depilated fixtures

The abandoned theater, a testament to changing times

No one visits here, it lies barren and lonely

Out of business, out of favor, it lies forgotten

Until that strange incident brought limelight to it

The screen lit up with moving images no one had seen before

Bright and other-worldly, they carried unusual intensity

People walked in out of curiosity


But no one walked out of there again……..

Welcome to my Friday afternoon paint chip prompt. There are other paint chip prompts out there, but they’re very precise in what they ask for. Mine is open ~ write a poem, a story, a memory, whatever you like. Take your inspiration this week from Valspar’s “water’s edge” and/or “morning chill.” Tag your post Paint Chip Friday, or PCF

~*~

On a foggy morning
Standing on the water’s edge
Bracing against the morning chill


Looking ahead
The adventure is about to begin
As I step on the ship of my dreams


Sailing away
No looking back
No regrets, no qualms
It’s a brave new world

Weekly Prompts – Colour Challenge BLUE

Sue W and GC are the hosts of Weekly Prompts

“The colour blue is everlastingly appointed by the deity to be a source of delight. ~ John Ruskin.

Colour Challenge Blue

This weekend is our monthly Colour Challenge and for September partner GC and I have chosen the colour BLUE.

How you choose to translate the challenge is entirely up to you  – Words, Pictures, Poetry or Rhyme. 

Please tag Weekly Prompts Colour Challenge.

➰➰➰


Why do they associate blue with sadness

Blue is the color of calm, it is the aura of peace

For me blue represents the magic of flowing water

The sereneness of the summer sky, the calm of the sea

Why do they associate blue color with despondency

It is the color when the sun sets over the horizon

And night has not yes fully claimed the sky

It’s the color of your eyes in the depth of which

I find my solace, my peace my hearts desires

I love the color blue, the radiant shine of precious diamonds

➰➰➰
