Oh! So spooky was Ms. Mary

When she went to a jamboree

 She sang with the band

Holding head in one hand

With a voice so blood curdling and scary

Weekend Writing Prompt #156 – Home

Hidden inside my computer

Is my sweet virtual home

Known pathways

Each one takes me to friends’ home

To their world of stories, poems, photography

I feel so comfortable here

I am accepted here

My writing is accepted here

However boring, full of mistakes it may be

My friends are so encouraging

So kind and understanding

They are full of praise, appreciation

They make you feel important

They help enhance your self-esteem

No one is here to judge you

To make fun of you

I feel as if I have known them all my life

It’s an escape from the Problems of life

Maybe for an hour or more

But it’s relieving

COZY CASTLE A Poem by BEN NAGA

Posted on

Poem by Ben Naga

COZY CASTLE

Out in the black a tiny spark

Blooms into flaming flesh

That flickers, a fiery dancer
Amidst a slowly forming picture
Imagined, improved, approved as
Yes … that castle only dreamt of
Time and effort bring it into view
With towers, turrets, and bartizans
Crenellations atop sturdy walls
A moat and drawbridge, portcullis
A statement of power, of dominion
Protection against any assault
From the envious or less fortunate
Fully equipped with arrow slits
Endless ramparts, battlements
Murder holes and oubliettes
Till in time as will in time all
The tide turns and with a sigh
The sandcastle returns to sand
~ Ben Naga

Weekend Writing Prompt #81 – Fringe

Challenge hosted by Sammicox- Weekend Writing Prompt #81 – Fringe

The flowers were on the fringe, ready to fall. I touched the tree and was bathed with the fragrant flowers.

With that came the penalty, allergy attack.

So much to pay for the pleasure.

Weekend Writing Prompt #80 – Castle

Old castles intrigued me. If I can travel back in the past, I will visit each and every castle in the world, not only to enjoy their grandeur and architecture but to explore what secrets lay behind those walls.

How many stories of love, kindness, brutality, cruelty, corruption, politics, power game, vendetta, murder, and goodness they have witnessed.

How dirty games their masters have played or how much their own people, relatives, and best friends have betrayed to gain power, wealth, name and fame.

Do they feel ashamed of the behavior of their masters?

How I wish they could talk.

Weekend Writing Prompt #68 – Derelict

Word Prompt

Derelict

Challenge

Forget me not

And leave me  derelict

Forget not my

Glorious past

Wasn’t I

The launching pad for 

Many legends

Who are now

Superstars and

Directors

Wasn’t I

Their life’s

Important chaptor

How could you

Leave me

Uncared and neglected

And

Shun me like

An outcast

Weekend Writing Prompt #63 – Crumble

 

How first rejection

Made me crumbled down

The world has come to an end, I thought

To cry my heart out

Stormed out in the rain

Sure rain will hide my tears, but

The cool shower made mind cool

Tears refuse to come out

My mind said ‘don’t behave like a fool’

There is so much to enjoy, dear

Life doesn’t end with a rejection

Lots of chance will come by

I phoned the one who rejected

Said ‘you…go to hell’

Then I felt well
