Weekend Writing Prompt #81 – Fringe

Posted on

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

Weekend Writing Prompt #62 – Zephyr

Thanks, Sammy for The Weekend Writing Prompt #62 – Zephyr

 

Gentle as Zephyr

Love touches my parched soul

Longed for this moment

 

 Longed for this moment

Forever and forever

Fearing it eludes

 

Fearing it eludes

Me without ever knowing

How you feel when loved

 

How you feel when loved

The way you want to be loved

On the seventh sky 

 

On the seventh sky

Hoping to never come down

To the loveless world

 

To the loveless world

Of the harsh realities

Where no one wants me

 

Where no one wants me

Soul parches and yarns for someone

Gentle as Zephyr

 

Gentle as Zephyr

Where do you reside, in

 Dream or reality

COLLEEN’S WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 91, “Magic & Green,” #SYNONYMSONLY

The dry spell no more
rain god waves  conjuring wand
sea water turns  grey
the trees become fresh and bathed
making earth lush emerald
—————————-
need incantations 
to put the unripened fruits
back where they belonged
unluckily plucked in haste 
before they were fully ripe

Weekend Writing Prompt #61 – Quarantine

Can

Someone

help me

find a way

to put

some files in my mind

to 

Quarantine

which do not let me 

forgive and forget

past

allow me to 

live in the present

making my and others life

difficult

so

they cannot

corrupt my mind to

take control

over my brain

with its evil design

to disrupt

my present

allow me

to

live in peace

and enjoy

life

to pass through successfully
