Cringe – Daily Prompt

The hour is ticking
The moon in a mist
Got to keep asking
Where’s the moonlight tryst?

Trim the stem
You’re not here
Am I condemned?
Feeling’s so queer

I miss you dearly
My head is spinning
I beg of thee
Please don’t fling

Can’t get over it
As I look at your prints
I’m turning half-wit
Give me a hint

I cringe from memories
I can’t lift my spirit
How can I be appeased?
When I run in circuit

Living without you
I’ve had my chips
My life is through
Can’t come to grips

The Girl Who Became a Bear

prophetess

There was a single lady who was drunk
In a blink of an eye she turned to bear
Fear lashed her to frenzy, she’s got no spunk

With sheer force, she snatched a tattered armchair
She spun around and dust was all over
Like she was rooting for something out there

She wanted that things remained as they were
She was happy drinking with all her friends
But then everything turned to be a blur

As a bear, what could she do to make mends?
Could she curve her drinking and be good girl?
Perhaps she amends and start all these trends?

She promised to be good with a sly twirl
Doesn’t want to be a bear forever
Be a lady and time to meet her earl

She has time to think about her future
Could be wonderful and living with flair
As long as the situation can alter

And so the lady waited for some time
As she was and be part of paradigm
There was a single lady who was drunk
Fear lashed her to frenzy, she’s got no spunk*

Lost in the middle of a forest – Sunday Photo Fiction

10-eric-wicklund-25-june-2017
© Eric Wicklund

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “When a Friend Dies” by Esther Cohen: lost, middle, upset, nursery, stories, dance, wait, treatment, week, school, older, lunches

Lost in the middle of a forest
The stories of us at their fullest
From nursery and school, all these years
Eating lunches together, a must

Best mates as we got older it appears
Went to dance and we had all the cheers
Buried our memories in the woods
Then we separated for our careers

Couldn’t wait to leave our childhoods
Out of nowhere I saw your falsehoods
The treatment I got from you was unfair
You never deserve all these knighthoods

Out of sight and mind that I could bear
I have no regrets with our affair
That part of us was now elsewhere
In the forest as I sigh with a tear*

Lady by the sunset – Ladylee’s Photo Prompt #2

DSC08647

lady by the sunset
silhouette by the sea
on such a calm evening
some people having tea
sunset they are watching

lady by the sunset
shadow covered the sun
on her way to see him
waited for her all day
her response to his hymn

lady by the sunset
she’s as pretty as rose
others look as she walks
she says hi as she goes
invite her in their talks

lady by the sunset
such a charming person
wish she could be my friend
will go dancing at night
have fun at the weekend*

Commit – Daily Prompt

DSC00144

Que sera sera, kahit ano ang magiging, ay magiging
Iyan ay ang palagi kong iniisip
Anuman ang aking tinanim, isang araw ang binhing ito ay lalago
Isipin ang paraan upang harapin ang sitwasyong ito
Sa kalaunan, makikita natin ang mga bulaklak na bumunga
Depende sa atin o tadhana na ang buhay ay sumaya
Kung ano man ang gusto ko, kailangan kong abutin ito
Pasalamat ako sa aking pamilya at pangako ko
Ang ilog ay dumadaloy , ang araw ay sumikat at lumubog
Ipagdiwang sa pamamagitan ng pagsasayaw
Sa pagsasaka, ang dumi ay napakahalaga
Ang mga pagsubok ng buhay ay nanatiling pare-pareho
Para sa paglaki ng mga buto ng mais isang araw
Ito ay tulad ng pag-iisip at pagsulat ng isang sanaysay
O ang puno na magkaroon ng ubas sa taglagas
Ang pinakamahalagang bagay ay kalayaan

july-30

Que sera sera, whatever will be, will be
That’s how I always think it will be
Whatever I sow, one day this seed will grow
Figure out the way to deal with the status quo
Later, there’ll be some sprouts and flowers come
It’s up to me to make life brilliant or awesome
If I want something, I need to reach out for it
Glad I’ve got a close-knit family and I commit
The river flows, the sun rises and sets
Let’s celebrate by dancing a minuet
In farming, dungs are very important
The trials of life remained a constant
For the seeds to grow corns one day
It’s like thinking and writing an essay
Or vines to have grapes in autumn
The most important thing is freedom

Saturday’s Mix – Sound – 24 June 2017

dmmtxod

Drip, drip, drip, that tap is getting on my nerves
Must have a firm grip to stop the drip, drip, drip
Otherwise I might have a trip to a coo-coo land

Coo-coo, coo-coo, coo-coo that’s our Swiss clock
Must take out the batteries to stop it from coo-cooing
HRH the son should have taken it with him when he left

He insisted of buying it when he was seven, I think
And so we have to suffer hearing its coo-coo every hour

Crash, bang, boom, what was that? A thunderstorm?
Him Indoors looking for his lost something in the house?
Part of the Greek wedding ceremony with plates smashing?
Crash, bang, boom, oh- oh- not again! Crash, bang, boom

Boo-hoo-hoo, what are you crying for? You should be happy
Do a hehehehe or a hahahaha or a hip hip hurray, hip hip hurray
Love to hear hehehehe sounds than a boo-hoo-hoo ones

#SoCS June 24/17 – “rain/rein/reign”

maxresdefault

Rattle that lock and lose those chains
Don’t let them take over the reins
Get out of that dark forest
Don’t want it to be the bleakest
Force your way into the light
Don’t give up easily the fight
Beneath the waterfalls such force
And within us we’ve got resource
Marvellous sound the falling water
We won’t know until we’ve entered
Rattling but so soothing
All the positive force it brings
Think a little and send us the rain
We’ve got the power to reign
Rattle that lock and lose those chains
Don’t let them take over the reins
