The slanting rays of the sun touched

The waves of the ocean lightning flames

Where ever the gold touched the

The cool blue of the water

The last dying kiss of the sun

Bestowing glamorous hues to the vast expanse

Of the ocean, expanding to the entire horizon

I will tell you what is the ideal evening for me

Sitting comfortably with a few of my favorite things

A hot cup of coffee in my best mug

A book which holds my attention

And music to accompany this idyllic scenario

Daily Prompts- From afar

Finding solace in memories

And the leftover roses from the funeral wreath

Remembering her winsome personality

Lost in yesteryears, lamenting his own role

If his manner were more loving and understanding

She would not have the justification

To stave off his love when she was living

Now leaning against his crooked stick

He could only mourn her death from afar

~*~*~

Under the dappled shadow of the old elm tree

The fragrant fire blazes and warms

The smoke from the roasting meat smells good

The best way to cook the potatoes

Is to squish them after baking in the hot coals

Better crank up the flames because it may take

Hours if you continue at this pace

All these survival techniques are handed down

From our forefathers, generation after generation

The derivative of experience and knowledge

But now this new generation is failing humanity

The origin of the species maybe certain

But it’s fate lies now in the hands of simpering fools

Daily Prompts – Descent into dark

He was from an aristocratic lineage

She was simple pheasant blood

To his jaded mind, she looked an easy conquest

He was a victim of the twin evils

An abundance of wealth and arrogance

The affair was the herald of disaster and heartache

For her, while he thought he would get off

Without any repercussions and blame

But life has a way of finding ways to pay back

His descent into the dark brought dishonor and shame

Family estates splintered and crumbling under debt

The final release came with ignominious death

No one gets off scot free, no matter how high they be

Saturday Mix – Mad About Metaphor, 12 October 2019

~*~*~

Love is a battlefield and we are the warriors

We fight with all the odds so our love survives

How many things that can go wrong

The misunderstandings that arise

All the barriers in the way of a lover’s heart

Need whole hearted commitment and dedication

So dress in the armor of impregnable belief

And stand on guard as the battle is about to commence

Since the love is a battlefield and we are the defenders

~*~*~

The Prompt;

Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Mad About Metaphor, 12 October 2019! 

Our metaphor this week is:

 Love is a battlefield.

Simply put, a metaphor is a figure of speech containing an implied comparison. With metaphors, words or phrases that are ordinarily applied to one thing are applied to something you wouldn’t necessarily pair it with. Metaphors are members of the figurative language family, which also include elements like similes, onomatopoeia, and personification.

Daily Prompts- Lets stroll

Nightfall is a fantastic time for a stroll

The shadows are gradually lengthening

As the dusk of this fall day approaches

We step out, warmly clad, hand in hand

There is a detour we may take along the way

It’s getting cold though it is nowhere near

The record low temperatures of the year

The crickets team up to play a noisy symphony

Everywhere there are golden hues

Of the autumn leaves carpeting the paths

Like a fortune scattered in our way

Thursday Inspiration 25- An Unplanned Adventure

Paula is the host of Thursday Inspiration

Welcome to Thursday Inspiration! This is my weekly prompt post and hopefully it will inspire you to write something creative, perhaps a poem or a piece of flash fiction.

This week’s theme is adventure and the picture is below. Here is the song snippet from “Born To Be Wild” recorded by Steppenwolf in 1968:

Get your motor runnin’
Head out on the highway
Lookin’ for adventure
And whatever comes our way

Octopus on a motorcycle
Picture from the Happy Color app.

~*~

It was a sudden urge to go climbing

An unplanned adventure thrust upon me

Reluctant and unprepared, I had to become

The hero of my own adventure

The climb to the shallow hill became a challenge

No one to rescue, no knight is shining armor

Only me to help me in this unwarranted situation

Limping and cursing I came down holding onto

A brightly decorated climbing stick left there

But some kindly and thoughtful soul

Never again will I undertake such an adventure

Now I know my limits so I shouldn’t step

Out of the natural limits imposed by age

~*~

The tiny canoe had only one paddle

But that was just what was needed

He rowed himself to his secret place

A place where in the privacy of solitude

He could play with the sunbeams dancing

On the surface of water, enchanting and magical

Where he sat alone with his dreams and words

Composing poems and stories in his imagination

One day he will share them with the world

But today, they are his and his alone to enjoy

~*~

The prompt;

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

Here’s how it works:

Every Wednesday I post a photo (this week it’s that one above.)
You respond with something CREATIVE

Serenity

When the world is still sleeping and the day is yet to begin

The sun is going to brighten our world, but not just yet

There is a corner of my universe that is filled with peace

The serenity and quietness of early morning dawn and only me

I stand in the stillness of the time, a pause before the morning takes

Its first breath, before the business of life resumes its chaotic pace

A few moments to recharge

A few breaths of freshness

A time where I am just with me

I savor these precious minutes

Before I plunge back into the pursuit of living!
