Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt! Reserve

Posted on

PROMPT WORD:  RESERVE

I watch her taking long walks all alone.

She looks like a very reserved person in self-imposed exile.

I once tried to be friendly with her, but she declined and said, ‘she is cursed, and anyone she loves or became friendly will die.

She recalls that the first time she cried was when her husband died, then one by one, as if in procession, all her dear and near ones died.

Now she prefers to live alone lest she causes harm to anyone.

She has found solace in solitude.

Unmoored…

An old sepia toned picture kindled wistful memories

of the bygone days.

I was the diva of rhythmic prowess,

tiptoeing my way on to the stage.

Full of nimble balletic grace,

pirouetting with poise, to the musical cadence.

I was crowned the

Dancing Queen

to a thunderous applause.

Today, my passion for dance has drifted into oblivion,

as I strive to prove myself in the rat race.

It sadly rests in peace

buried under the busyness of life,

in a dark corner of my soul!

Thank you Lillian for hosting Poetics at dVerse. This week’s prompt is to use one line from Dancing Queen , a composition by ABBA. I’ve used : Dancing Queen.

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Notable – December 2, 2021- Notable

Sometimes mishap brings

In people’s percipience

A notable change

This one’s for you, Bjorn!

Posted on

You can sing

You can dance, you can jive

What more do you want to survive

No place on earth

Is untouched by grief

You are tough

You are young

You can turn over a leaf

What more do you want to survive

World is cruel

World is harsh

There is everywhere strife

You are tough

You are young

You can take it in your stride

you are not a quitter

If you don’t feel bitter

What more do you want to survive

You can sing

you can dance, you can jive

( line chosen- You can dance, you can dance)

Life is a journey

you dig, you dream
you wish, you want
you work, you slog
you aspire, you conspire
you overstretch yourself
to fulfil a dream

it gets magnified
it looks within reach
I need to get there
and when you get a chance
you jump at it blind
It’s victory supreme

you float for a while
then check where you are
the oars feel heavy
energy depletes
Are you heading north
or are stuck midstream?

it feels unreal now
been taken for a ride
used for a while
then thrown aside
Is it everyone’s story
or a case extreme?

You start connecting
With fellow travellers
Hear their stories
Find commonalities
Whatever starts has to end 
Life is a journey
Life is a dream…

Crowned heads

Posted on

SacredCircleforWomen

I wear the crown
live uneasy…

I wear my thorns
like a crown
take the high road

What’s your lineage, woman?

A spark, and guts
to live on my terms
not submit to authority

I bow to you, Queen
for you don’t need me

Quadrille #141: Heady is the Poem That Wears the Crown 

Posted on

https://dversepoets.com/

There was a king who owned a rooster

Both were very proud of their feathers and their crown

Their pride did shatter

In absence of their feathers and their crown

One ended up on the platter

And one was thrown out of the throne

Does this picture inspire you to write something?

BONDING

What are you doing, dear?

I am video recording you telling stories, grandma.

Why record when I’m here to tell you stories every day?

It is for those children who don’t have grandmas to tell stories, grandma. They will also enjoy as I do. Isn’t it a nice idea, Grandma?

You are so considerate, aren’t, you wiser than your age, darling?

Ha-ha! Aren’t you younger than your age, sweetheart?
