Crimson Creative Challenge #45- Windmills

Crispina is the host of Crimson Creative Challenge #45

CCC#45

~*~

Windmills

Windmills in my head

Blowing the air in my hair this way and that

Wild ideas seldom making sense

But I am riding on my imaginary stead

Recklessly through the bush and bramble

Dislodging the fact and stories alike

Like husk falling from the grain

No need to lay thoughts sunder

I am sure to scatter them all across the table

Hey, wait a nebulous idea has just been born

In this jumbled up brain of mine

The fissures running through the reality

Bring the fascinating new thought to fore

I love when my mind goes on a bender

That’s when I get the best of my ideas

In addition to CCC I have included the following prompts in this post;

In the firelight

He garnered little twigs in a pile

Light up a fire to illuminate the site

Out here in the open there isn’t

A lamp to be lit, a bed to sleep in

Just him and his cat sitting in the autumn eve

A library book open to a dog eared page

Remembering the past with pain

Asking for clemency from his memories

What happened in the past never stays there

It haunts him in ways unimaginable

He is his own antagonist barring

Relief or solace from the guilt of past deeds

When will he forgive himself

So that others can do so too

What’s up for today!

Getting up in the morning

Feeling upbeat and elated

Surveyed all that I see

Like a queen of the kingdom

There are no set antecedents

For me to adhere to, no shoes to fill

Making a sense of the jumble of thoughts

That accost me when I perceive

All that I have to accomplish

Stiffing my spine I get to addressing

Different chores that demand

My attention on this lovely day!

Come along for the ride

Riding my bicycle I dream of the future

The air streaming through my hair

I have a feeling of being in a pastoral garden

While riding in the middle of concrete jungle

The cushion of the seat feels like a plush throne

In my mind I talk to myself about my plans

Do you want to come along for a ride

Continental Breakfast

Anyone who has traveled knows that orange juice is a vital part of continental breakfast. It is served first thing in the morning , which is followed by hot bread rolls, or flaky croissants with butter and jam. Rounded up by coffee. There is a simplicity to this meal which keeps the breakfast light without too much cholesterol rich food. The emotional attachment some people have with eggs and bacon leads to elevate levels of fat in our bodies. Even if they go for a run in the yard after the heavy breakfast that they consume, it doesn’t helps much in attaining good health.

First, Orange, Yard

Word of the day Challenge;

The star 🌟

The elevator stopped on the thirteenth floor with a lurch. He was here but reluctantly. His sister had begged him to come and meet this special girl who she thought had great musical talent.

He looked at the young girl, ”So this is the precocious talent you are trying to promote” There was a sardonic twist to his lips and boredom in his voice. Silvia understood his point of view. It was very common for friends and family to approach him with requests of giving their child a chance. He was a world-class musician after all. But she remained unfazed. She was convinced in her mind that once he would listen to Jackie playing the piano, he will be convinced that she indeed is a genius in making. He only needed to assimilate the magnitude of this little girls talent.

Without saying another word, she gestured to Jackie to play her piece. As soon as the notes of piano hit his ears he was captivated.

Spicy Tacos!!!

One serving of spicy tacos

Leaves me wanting more

It’s not just happenstance

That I have to battle with my weight

I wish I was aloof and disinterested

In good food, giving it a wide berth

My mind would not notify me of its presence

Instead of lusting after all those flavors

Which enchant me, beckon to me

And in the end make me lose control

Of all my planned diets and resolves

Tale Weaver – #239 – Flowers – 6th September

IMG_0226

This week consider “Flowers” as our topic. What thoughts and stories do you have regarding flowers.

~*~

The bee was searching high and low

For nectar from the flowers to borrow

The creature was simple and guileless

Not an ounce of craftiness it harbored

Flowers were a lifeline for its kind

And they in turn would propagate them

Pollination from one plant to another

Essential for the survival of both the species

It didn’t need to do any research

All programmed into its DNA

Humming and strumming like that of a guitar

They make their own music

Where has it gone?

There is a giant gapping hole

Where the heart of our planet was

All the love we had in reserve

For this home of ours has dissipated

Now just empty words, fervid promises

Are on our tongues but just lies they are

What happened to the youthful enthusiasm

The energy and verve that we had

To save this home for future generations

All gone and blown away

In the hole where the heart of our planet laid once

In response to the following prompts;

Your daily word Prompt;

Giant
