Sunday Writing Prompt – 13th September – Cards

Michael is the host of Sunday Writing Prompt this week

This week write your response in story or poetry form in which ‘cards’ of one form or another feature.
It doesn’t have to be limited to playing cards, it could card of any kind, credit cards, business cards, just go where the prompt sends you.

~*~*~*~

You play with the cards life has dealt you with

No use of crying over what was given to you at the start

But be assured that if you lack one thing, there is more of the other

There is a balance in each and everything that happens

We can spend our entire lives ruing what should have been

Or we can make of it what can be and what will be

Daily Prompts- Connections

Admittedly, we all are different

Our lives and circumstances are different

No two people have life exactly the same

Yet we are all connected to each other

Emotions shared with empathy and understanding

We feel the joy of others and laugh with them

We even clown about to make a sad friend smile

Or shed tears when we see a tragedy happening

It is heresy in my opinion to divide people

On the basis of race and religion or color of skin

Though there’s no quick fix to the problem of racism

We can nip this evil in the bud when others try to divide us

In response to the following prompts;

YDWP;

Different

3TC;

Laugh, Nip, Fix

FOWC;

Heresy

RDP;

Clown

Word of the day challenge;

Empathy

Daily Prompts- Hope is my anchor

You may call it my idiosyncrasy but for me

A day without hope is a day totally wasted

It is my anchor and my support and without it

I am like a ship facing multiple storms simultaneously

If you encounter me in person, I might irritate you

With my positive and optimistic attitude, in perpetuity

There is no part of my heart unoccupied, hope lives everywhere

In my laughter and in my tears you still can see

How sincere I am when I tell you that I am grounded

And centered because a bird called hope lives in my soul

( Inspired by Emily Dickens poem)

In response to the following prompts;

YDWP;

Idiosyncrasy

3TC;

Hope, Sincere, Nerve

Encounter

RDP;

Unoccupied

Daily Prompts- Homeless

He is forgotten by the people, left alone

Branded a felon, given a wide berth

His life wasn’t always like this or this hard

He used to be someone with a name and an address

Now he is at the bottom of the food chain

Eating food thrown away by the others

Existing at the fringe of this heartless society

He expects nothing from those he sees daily

There is no shelter from pouring rain or burning sun

From Monday to Sunday, week after week

He is never first in line always the last

This should not be his ending, we should make sure

Give his life a better caption, help him find his purpose again

Today’s RDP Prompt is homeless. So I’m sharing my poem from a couple of days ago!

In response to the following prompts;

YDWP;

Felon

3TC;

Ending, Caption, Bottom

FOWC;

Rain

Fringe

Homeless

Daily Prompts- Begone

Begone racism, scurry away to a dark corner

Where you and others like you belong

It is unfair, echoes the perfunctory sentiments

When faced with this deadly demon of inequality

Our words fall short of the experience that others feel

These typical responses won’t cut the deal this time around

We may be unready to herald this change right now

But the reality is that it’s way past the time for it

Take out the carcass of racism and bury it deep

Let not its’ specter escape, let’s get rid of it altogether

In response to the following prompts;

YDWP;

Scurry

3TC;

Typical, Unfair, Echo

FOWC;

Perfunctory

RDP;

Unready

Word of the day challenge;

Racism

Daily Prompts- Blessings

Trust and faith sometimes can be frangible

We pay penalty for losing hope with unhappiness

I would rather sing odes to the blessings which

I and my household are endowed with, innumerable

Nothing epic, all simple ordinary things I can count

But each and everyone one of them makes my heart stout

This gratitude starts the journey initially

And takes me to the road of marvelous discoveries

In response to the following prompts;

YDWP;

Frangible

3TC;

Blessing, Household, Penalty

FOWC;

Epic

RDP;

Stout

Word of the day challenge;

Tale Weaver – #284 – Blessing – July 16th

Michael is the host of Tale Weaver

IMG_0417

This week weave your tale around your response to the word: ‘blessing’.

~*~

My grandfather once told me the secret to a good life

Be a blessing in someone’s life, not a curse

Be the one who brings smiles to a face, not tears in the eyes

Be the hand that lifts not the one that pushes down

Utter the words that encourage and empower others

Never be the naysayer or the voice of doom

His words were his golden rules he lived by, all his life

Now long after he’s gone, I try to honor him

By modulating my life according to his advice

Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday 18 July 2020- Link

Linda is the host of Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “link.” Use it as a noun or a verb; use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

2019-2020 SoCS Badge by Shelley! https://www.quaintrevival.com/

~*~

Like links of a chain, we are linked to each other

Break a link and you break the chain, setting adrift

The parts which come together as a whole

Strengthen this chain, be the link that holds tenaciously

As one we will survive

If broken we will scatter

Like dead leaves in the wind

With a great responsibility when I was given a free will
