#SoCS April 21/18 – spoke

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “spoke.” Use it somewhere, in some form, in your post. Bonus points if you don’t use it in the first sentence. Enjoy!

There was a young lady from Pinner
Who always appeared such a winner
But she spoke as she ate
Not bothering to wait
No manners while scoffing down dinner!

Sorry, such a silly effort, but my brain was on strike… nothing spoke to me… apart from silly limerick rhymes!

Happy Saturday Peeps!

#WritePhoto – Waiting

Sue’s #WritePhoto Prompt this week:

Waiting…
It’s that time again
Waiting…
Can you feel the pain?
Waiting…
Don’t know what you gain
Waiting…
Crying like the rain
Waiting…
Still wrapped in your chains
Waiting…
Yet I can’t refrain
Waiting…
It all starts to drain
Waiting…
Thoughts inside my brain
Waiting…
And you’ve left a stain
But I’m still
Waiting…

This was actually a poem I wrote a couple of years back… I hope you enjoyed it.

Pulling your closer
Gently reassuring you
I’ll always be there
Soothing words murmured faintly
Hoping you will understand

Velvety petals
Crushed beneath our hot bodies
Hands clasping
Smooth sheets below
Quickly reaching
Quiet climax
Clutching each other
You complete me

Some fun in the sun
A little naughty, maybe
But that’s what heat does!

#SoCS April 14/18 – Mon

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “mon.” Use the letters “mon” in a word, or use it as a word by itself. Have fun!

The first thing that came to mind was Mon ami – which, in French, means my friend.
I wanted to start the post with a Bonjour, Mon ami! Then I realised that I would be referring to only one of you, and there are so many of you, people I consider my friends, my blog-pals, in the Blogosphere! Though I know there will only be one of you sat there, in your own space, reading it at any one time, so I guess I could make it really personal!

Bonjour, Mon ami!

I hope you are having a wonderful Saturday morning/afternoon/evening/night (delete as appropriate!)

You know what? I am dreading Monday…

These past two weeks have been wonderful, what with our little break, and finally finishing my 18-year-old WIP. And I haven’t really thought about school at all, apart from the one day I had to go in to do some preparation.

I almost don’t want to go back, to be honest!

But, it’s got to be done.

The novel isn’t published yet, it’s not a best-seller, made into a hit Hollywood/Bollywood movie, allowing me to retire and write in peace, happily ever after.

Not yet.

But I can dream, you know…

I’m off to celebrate Vaisakhi now, at the local Nagar Kirtan, or parade around the town centre so will catch up soon!

Oh, and in case you were wondering what happened with regards to my passive/aggressive Hubby Dearest, and the apartments complaint, from past week’s SoCS post… We ended up staying in the same place, but left a night early, and got a FULL REFUND! See, it pays to complain (politely) sometimes!

 

 

 


Happy Saturday Peeps!
