For My Love

As My Mind Wanders

CCC #103

Beneath the rubble I could see bricks peeking through and my mind began to wander

Was there more underneath?

Perhaps an entire home was buried here

Who had lived here?

What had happened?

Perhaps it was an earthquake that rumbled years ago

Had the people survived?

Were their souls lingering here amongst the bricks buried beneath?

Elucidate – Haiku

Today’s word is “elucidate.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Please check to confirm that your pingback is there.

Image by David Mark from Pixabay 

Rhyme Time’ focuses on the use of rhyme to build your writing piece. You will be given six rhyming words* and need to use all of them (but not limited to these) in your response, which should be a poetry form of your choice.

*Homophones can be used as alternatives to the challenge words.

Our rhyming words this week are:

  1. batch
  2. catch
  3. hatch
  4. match
  5. patch
  6. thatch

===============================

I had to thatch a patch

I hoped that it would match

So, I mixed up a batch of thatch

Before the chicken eggs would hatch

Remembering also to put in a window catch

Wordle #206 – A Bad Fall

Ineffable
Vale- the world, or mortal or earthly life
Summit
Boots
Ankle
Wet
Grey
Pain
Reflect
Walk
Pine Needles
Extend

Written for Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Wordle #206

Her boots were wet and had more than likely caused her to fall while walking down the summit. The pain was ineffable, and she was sure she had broken her ankle.

Laying on a bed of pine needles Laura looked up at the sky that was quickly turning grey. A storm was on the horizon.

Thinking she’d be left out here in the wild to die Laura tried to move. Slowly she made it a few feet closer to a tree she thought she would use to stand up. Extending her arm to the trunk of the tree and grabbing hold she dragged herself closer. With all her might she stood up.

Reflecting to her medical training she lightly tried to put a bit of weight on the injured ankle. Screaming out in pain she knew walking was not an option. Laura prayed that someone would find her before she died here in the vale.

Six Sentence Story – Silly Poem

Image by Michelle Maria from Pixabay 

My silly little poem was written in response to Denise’s Six Sentence Story Challenge over at Girlie on the Edge’s Blog. This weeks challenge was to use the word “Gallery”.

 

 

Mallory let’s go to the gallery

Sorry, no, not on my salary

Go ask Valerie to go with you to the gallery

I did and she’s having problems with her allergies

How about if I take you to that bar in Calgary

Only if you promise to buy me a daiquiri

 

London Fog – Haiku

Engulfed, sight was dimmed

Heavy fog obfuscating

Chilly murkiness

Thick like a pea soup

Squinting, difficult to see

Suspended droplets

This haiku was written for a challenge over at Fandango’s called #FFFC.
