Apr 23 #AprPAD #NaPoWRiMo

Hate realizing a post didn’t – well – post.

Day 23  I didn’t get to a post yesterday – what with the Garden Poems reading and other distractions. So consider that day a wild card as far as prompts go.

My next reading will be this Thursday – Moments Before Midnight Continue reading “Apr 23 #AprPAD #NaPoWRiMo”

Apr 17 #AprPAD #NaPoWRiMo

Day 17 I have a good reason for being late-ish today. A great reason! I was poeming. That ABC poem from last Friday? – My muse decided what it really should consist of: and I’m mostly blind today so it took a while – and two devices – to type it out.

I’ll share it with you at the end of today’s offering.

 

Today’s prompt is “shared questions”. Continue reading “Apr 17 #AprPAD #NaPoWRiMo”

Mar 26 prompt

The United States right now is craaazy! What ‘s right is wrong, what’s black is white, what’s up is down; feeding the hungry is being outlawed, defending the vulnerable is being portrayed as attacking white males and the NRA is taking an affront with schoolchildren denouncing slaughter in the schools.

Let’s go to a different time, shall we? Today’s prompt is “September 1960 “. Continue reading “Mar 26 prompt”

Mar 25 prompt

I’m not a smoker but…Today’s prompt is “an ashtray”. Continue reading “Mar 25 prompt”

Today is one of my favorite days – my “baby” sister’s birthday! And I’m missing her.

Strange how photographs hold sounds and scents, emotions .. Continue reading “Mar 24 prompt”

I’m out and about today, helping a friend. So posting today’s prompt from my phone…

Today, St Patrick’s Day, is a day of my people … if you count leprechauns as my ancestors! Although Im just as apt to claim the Sidhe and Faire Folk!

So rather than go with the cliche and trite prompts … Today’s prompt is Continue reading “Mar 17 prompt”

Feb 17 & 18 prompt and a poem

I was planning on doing nothing today Yeah – that’s not gonna happen. Creatives don’t do “nothing” …

 Yesterday’s  prompt was “buried on mars”

Today’s prompt is ” drink wine day” -yes – this is one thing I won’t be doing. I love wine … but none on hand. I have paint though – and canvas. So maybe I’ll paint wine. Continue reading “Feb 17 & 18 prompt and a poem”
