Friday Fictioneers – Hazy morning has folded

Hazy morning has folded
Gusts of wind come on earth
Of frozen lights and frozen ropes
Car in front of the family home
As they sat in front of the fire
Glacier rasped the valley floor
All the saints gather on holy hour
A silent but freezing morning

100 Word Wednesday: Week 58 – to be loved

Photo by Elijah Macleod

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Wanting it Darker” by Ben Ladouceur: coffee, mountain, painting, longer, soften, sad, numb, still, even, buildings, hand, each

The cold wind numbs her
Walking through the buildings
Each step seems longer
They used to walk here
Hand in hand
The rest of the world
Are not part of them
Just the two of them
That was then
When she was loved
And he was loved
Sad but life goes on
Trust was broken
Over and over
Even when they climbed the mountain
And looked at the paintings
Still they had to face the truth
They were not meant to be
Best to part ways
The memories stay
Some happy and some sad
No regrets, time to move on

Magnificent – ABC of Love – Love is in Da Blog 2018


brilliant day for us
rejoicing something special
being together

for thirty-one years
together through thick and thin
affirming our love


Ifugao people
blood and sweat used for this road
they used ancient tools

magnificent sight
primeval rice terraces
such a heritage

commune with nature
subtle beauty of the sea
tranquility felt

embraced by the wind
blue sea reflects the sky
magnificent feeling

mountains and forests
pure joy to be part of them
sunrise and sunset

Inspired by Art! A story with a twist

Image by artist Catrin Welz-Stein

A story with a twist
When she was transfixed
A process when was kissed

A smirk on her face was fixed
Dreaming away peacefully
When she was transfixed

Updraft of air breezily
Wednesday and time to stir
Dreaming away peacefully

Wabi-sabi to occur
The urge to consent
Wednesday and time to stir

Visitors to frequent
Sweet octagonal petals
The urge to consent

A dream of skittles
Sweet octagonal petals
A story with a twist
A process when she was kissed*
