Thursday photo prompt – Dusk #writephoto


Mighty dusk comes with silver clouds
Light in the middle of the sea
Can you not tell I come with plea?
And up the sky cotton cloud shrouds
Only glitch is I fall in ditch
A seam of mystery enshrouds
I am lost and my world’s empty
Mighty dusk comes with silver clouds

Mighty dusk comes with silver clouds
Nothing seems to be right you see
Boils down to being you as key
I sometimes see you in the crowds
Could be such a kitsch which is which
Darkness begins the overclouds
Will my life be bright or gloomy?
Mighty dusk comes with silver clouds*

Friday Fictioneers – Butterfly, flower, I

PHOTO PROMPT © Marie Gail Stratford

As the wind whispers, a butterfly hovers and I ponder
Will it know that there’s no more nectar?
That the sultry weather, made the flower falter?
And I sway and sweat in the veranda

A moment of tangency, for us three
The butterfly, the flower and I
I close my eyes, asking all the whys
The flower’s dead, the mocha butterfly and I sigh

Situation so fragile, a day so blissful
As I flicker my eyelashes
Widen my pupils, forget all battles
We’re all separated, what’s the fuzz?*

Sunday Photo Fiction – Can’t you see the sign?

© Sascha Darlington

Can’t you see the sign? Stop right there then
This is madness, you can’t follow me here
And as if the wind urges you to veer
Don’t let me shout, I’ll even count to ten
Although I miss you, I’d stay in my pen
The memory lingers on, that is clear
The sound of your voice still gives me a tear
You’ve hurt me, I have no power left then

No one has the sand to stand against fate
In this respect the sands of time run out
So please, do not go further than the gate
The story ends here and we live without*

Thursday photo prompt – Between #writephoto

Photo by Sue Vincent

As the gentle path runs between two fields
A spectacle of mint coloured grass sway
Rolling hill with rows of trees at the outfield
My bike spins its wheels as I go through my day
Missing the post at the bend of the road
Hoping to get his message by the tree
Cursive ink script on the paper showed
A sense of excitement like a bumblebee
He’s been here and asking for forgiveness
Between every sunrise and the sunset
We have to sort our unfinished business
I tried so hard but still he I can’t forget
Between heaven and earth, between two souls
Between two hearts, we meet to become whole

Friday Fictioneers – Hazy morning has folded

PHOTO PROMPT © Dale Rogerson

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

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*

Photo Challenge #198 – The final design

– Gyaban

Swimming with hardship
Plethora of pain
The final design
With difficulties
With one song it soothes
Let it chime its breeze
None to keep it void
Even time squeeze

Get into the groove
Padded with sponge
Follow the guideline
Situation improve
For what it is worth
Until the earth moves
And heaven agrees
I accede with ease*
