What do you See? Roundup April 9, 2019

 

Thank you everyone for sharing your creative talents in this challenge.

It has been a pleasure for me to read and learn from your stories and poetry.

Due to personal circumstances, I will no longer be posting a weekly “What do you See prompt”.  I extend a grateful thank you to all who participated making this a successful prompt.

There are many wonderful prompts on WordPress to inspire us all.  I will see you there and around WordPress.  

Happy writing 🙂

Fire

 

The fire roared, scattering embers on the sand

I skirted the nearby shack for any sign of life

Charred, still fuming a body lay at the door

 

It was then that I saw myself

contorted from searing pain

Nauseated by odor of burning flesh

 

I have been chastened

into the Fire of Hell

for lying to my mother

 

Mother is shaking me

” Wake up dear! Wake up!

It’s time for breakfast.”

 

In a pool of sweat

opening my eyes

the aroma of

sizzling breakfast sausages

scare me to hell

Written in response to prompt for:   V.J.’S WEEKLY CHALLENGE #43: RAIN

 

Rain 

…and the rain inundated the whole plain, urging the wild to search higher ground. Entangled in the snare of a swift current the barn fell, planks and beams stripped from the hold.

Impotent witness to the deluge the rain swiftly engulfed me thrusting my body to the bottom of the muddy plain.

Rain retained dominance.

Under the Cherry Blossoms

On Saturdays, Frank Tassone introduces us to a new prompt. This week we are asked to write about cherry (blossoms) (sakura).

Tuesday is here, I am still in a frigid part of the world, anxiously waiting for sign of Spring, any minute detail that could inspire me to write about blossoms. There are no buds in the trees, neither flower shoots piercing the hardened soil.

In this outdoor field we are blessed with ice pellets accompanied by three centimeters of gracious snow that delicately honor our precious threshold.

Under the Cherry Blossoms

sensuous springtime
paramour abandons me
for season’s virgin

mournful cry of the Geisha
cherry blossom trees quiver

Written in response to prompt:

#Haikai Challenge #80 (4/6/19): cherry [blossoms] (sakura) #haiku #senryu #haibun #tanka #haiga #renga

(The transience of the blossoms, the exquisite beauty and volatility, has often been associated with mortality[9] and graceful and readily acceptance of destiny and karma; for this reason, cherry blossoms are richly symbolic)
