#BookReview – Sue Vincent – Laughter Lines: Life From The Tail End #Poetry

Another book I have had on my Kindle, waiting patiently to be read, is Laughter Lines: Life From The Tail End by Sue Vincent. And I was finally able to get to it over this festive break!

Laughter Lines by Sue Vincent

My rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

A wonderful set of poems, showcasing the talent of Sue Vincent, and her four-legged pooch Ani!
Sue Vincent has a way with words, she can tell a tale in rhyme that hooks you and leaves you wanting more.
Thoroughly enjoyed!

Sue is a hugely talented author and poet, and co-director of The Silent Eye – A Modern Mystery School… intrigued? Click here to read more!

I have followed Sue for a good while now, and not only is she a fantastic writer, but a most supportive blogger, sharing the words of many fellow bloggers too. If you ever fancy a writing prompt, her #WritePhoto challenge every Thursday is brilliant! The variety of responses to her given photo shows just how inspired we all become! Several of us have even started serial-like weekly stories based on her prompts! Mine have been focussing on the love life of Barbie and Ken the last few weeks!

Ani’s Advent Invitation: A letter from Sonu Singh …and a poem from Ritu Bhathal | Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo

When Sonu Singh went to the rescue of his canine furry friend Ani!!! Pop over and visit Sue’s blog, where Ani, her dog is actively requesting posts to save her being dressed up as a reindeer or some such like by her two-legger!

 

So… we finally got snow and everything is looking all Christmassy. The trouble is, according to my friends, many of our two-legses think we should look all Christmassy too! And it isn’t…

Sue’s #WritePhoto Prompt this week:


I thought I’d continue the adventures of Barbie and Ken!

“By the light of the silvery moon…”
A tuneless voice warbled out a song at Barbie’s window.
Throwing an old slipper out she shouted “Shut up!” for good measure.
Just as she was about to close the window, she heard an “Ouch!”
“Who’s there?”
“It’s me,” came the voice of Ken. ” And that hurt!”
Barbie peered out of the window. Below her stood her long-suffering boyfriend, his younger brother’s ukelele in his hand.
“What were you doing, babe?”
” I was trying to sener- sedena- sing to you. You said you wanted a bit more romance, and I thought you’d like it…” Ken went to start strumming his instrument again.
“Stop babe! That was you singing? Oh my God, I thought it was next door’s cat again! You;’re lucky I didn’t pour water over you! Next time, just play me a song from your iPod, yeah?”

Sue’s #WritePhoto Prompt this week:


I thought I’d continue the adventures of Barbie and Ken!

The boat rocked.
“Babe! My clothes are getting wet! Can you stop that stupid splashing?!” Barbie let out a huge sigh.
Ken tried to wipe the beads of sweat from his forehead with the cloth his tee-shirt covering his shoulder. ” I’m trying, babe, but I gotta move this thing somehow!” He continued to row along the quiet stretch of river.
She sighed again. “And anyway, this isn’t a yacht! I was expecting a holiday on the French Riviera, with me laying on the deck of a huge boat, sunning myself as waiters brought me champagne on tap…”
“Hold on babe, you said you wanted to sun yourself on a boat, with bubbles, go swimming in the warm water – Look, the sun is out, we’re on a boat, well, in a canoe, and I got you a mini bottle of your favourite Prosecco!”
Ken looked ahead and noticed a low bridge they were approaching. “Duck!”
He bent down so they could glide under, just as Barbie sat up to look around. “Where?”
Thump – Splash!
“Babe! For God’s sake get me out of this yucky water, instead of sitting there watching me!” Barbie flailed around in the water, her head covered in weeds from the river.
“Oh! Sorry babe!” Ken leaned forward and reached an oar to her. ” I thought you’d gone for a swim… You did say you wanted to go swimming…”

Sue’s #WritePhoto Prompt this week:

I thought I’d continue the adventures of Barbie and Ken!

On their quest for a more stimulating intimate life together, Barbie and Ken were trying to act out any fantasies they had.
Barbie got out of the car and looked around her.
“Seriously babe? I said I wanted Sex on the Beach… Not a Roll around in Seaweed!”
Ken looked perplexed…Where was the water?
Looking at the notice board that explained the high and low tides, he realised he’d blown it again.

And a little Haiku too…

A tide ebbs away
Revealing hidden nature
Soon to be covered
