Crimson Creative Challenge # 81- Cool Blue

Crispina is the host of Crimson Creative Challenge


The cool blue water

Flowing gently under the bridge

Calms my mind, soothes my fears

Things look bad when I take a glance around me

But when I sit here and enjoy this calming scene

The apprehension and anxieties leave me

And I get up from here refreshed and made whole again

Season 2 – Game 5

5 questions …..

What puts or could put the bounce in your day?

I love being in charge of my day. When things are going according to my timetable, I am relaxed. A good walk early on, some quality blogging time,( where I schedule my posts for the next day), and all household chores under control.

And if at the end of this all, I get a bit of free time, it’s an added bonus.

What would you class as a weird question?

This one!

Well, any question that people don’t want to answer can be said to be a weird question.

But some are really weird;

What is the color of your mood?

How can you eat the moon and the sun in one bite?

What is the best way to die?


I can do weird too!

Why did 6 cry?

Because it has a huge belly.

Not because 7 8 ( ate) 9.

I know it for a fact.

List 6 items that would make a shop cashier look wide eyed at you in disbelief and horror?

Six packs of toilet paper.

It is likely that she will ask the store management to arrest me for hoarding.

How would you answer my question of ‘Hey How are you doing today?!” If l deliberately asked you to NOT answer it typically?

I am feeling rosy pink, floating in the ether of forgetfulness and enjoying the upside-down universe.

Is that Not Typical enough?




Thursday Photo Prompt- Guardian # WritePhoto

Sue Vincent is the host of Thursday Photo Prompt

Welcome to this week’s #writephoto prompt!

This week’s prompt ~ Guardian

(For visually challenged writers, the image shows a flower-strewn cliff-top above the sea, where a rocky outcrop, seemingly shaped into many forms and faces, looks out over the waves.)



As I sit

Along with them

I am also guarding

The flowers speak in gratitude

And the wind and the water watch

Beholden to those who are protecting

For they have been here ages


Ever watchful, ever vigilant

Overseeing and standing alert

I sit and I too guard with them

The sea, the landscape, this kingdom




Sharing responses to this week’s prompt, What do you see; Michael, Anita and Roshni

“There’s a light, over at the Frankenstein place” funny how I thought that as I trudged up the path towards the old house seeking help in the middle …

What do you see # 31 -25 May 2020 – A Dark and Foggy Night.


What Do You See? Prompt


via A Place Called Hope

Daily Prompts- A thing of beauty

Rows of flowers blooming

Tubs of roses, spilling out in profusion

The thorns may snag at your clothes

But their fragrance is enough compensation

A thing of beauty, a joy to behold

Gloom and sadness will slink away in shadows

Open the eyes wide, see the whole picture

No problem will seem insurmountable if you will

Break it down into manageable parts and

Tackle each with ease, and grace

In response to the following prompts;




Problem, Ease, Whole

Today is…….

Today is the …..

Today is the day

Sara was bouncing on her parent’s bed chanting this mantra when her mother walked in.

“What are you doing munchkin?”

She said in a mock scolding voice.

“Today is the day Mom when the school is off and I can do whatever I like”

“And what do you want to do?”

“I want to lie on your bed and watch cartoons all day long” Sara replied.

“And what about going out, riding your bike or playing with your friends?”

“Naw, I don’t want to meet them face to face till there is no danger of getting sick”

Sara said as she bounced down on the bed with a loud whoop.



Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #67- The storefront


FFFCWelcome to “Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge.”

The image below is from Joshua Koblin at the visually challenged writer, the photo is of storefront with its windows and doors covered over with newspapers)


The store was closed for renovations since last few weeks. It was rumored that a new high-end chain was going to open their outlet in this location. Much fanfare and publicity were expected as well.


nearby.quiteobservantnewspapers covering the windows were not the same every day. It was changing daily. This was intriguing. She stepped closer to read one in the front window. The date was of the next day. The news it was reporting was about an accident that killed a man while he was crossing the road. She thought the date was a misprint. But the next day, the reported accident happened in front of her and an old man died when hit by a vehicle at high speed.

She couldn’t wrap her head around the whole thing. She told a friend about it. And next day both of them were at the storefront, reading the news from the papers stuck to the glass. The date was a week from then. The news, tells of a massive earthquake that had killed thousands in Japan.

Sam was sure no one would believe her if she told them what she thought.

She was in a quandary!



Daily Prompts- Don’t wait

Deep in your bosom, you hold the secret

Of who you are, of your true worth

Don’t let their blather and their innuendo

Take away what blooms in your soul

Let the rawness and crudeness of their words

Slide off your back like water off a duck

This resilience is what you need most

To become your own person, to be proud

Of who you are and not wait for a sign

Or a nod of approval from the world

In response to the following prompts;




Raw, Film, Sign
