Lucid – Weekend Writing Prompt

wk-179-lucid-1

Drunkenly, I wend my way across the dancefloor

Tentatively, I reach for the door; it moves.

Blearily, I tried to decipher what is happening.

And then realise. Ah, a revolving door.

Not supernatural. Not just drunkenness.

A lucid explanation.

Now, to navigate through.

Weekend Word Prompt – Alone

Weekend Writing Prompt #175 Megalith

The Megalith hums; vibrates

Preternatural; outside nature

It stands, immobile but reaching skywards

Unearthed, yet anchored.

Moss covered; blending

Of sandstone, bluestone, granite

Of limestone, basalt, marble

Solid, unyielding, impervious

Ritual and superstition

Hold communities in awe

Engages curiosity

Pulses elevate

Living history is here

Standing stones

Alone; breathing

Weekend Writing Prompt – Rectify

If I had the chance to rectify

slights, and errors, mistakenly taken

If I would, if I should, could I follow through?

If it meant being held accountable? Would I face the music?

Could you?

Weekend Writing Prompt – End Lane

Weekend Prompt

sammiscribbles

Enid Lane.

Sounds innocent enough.

Backyard access to homes in your standard residential neighbourhood.

Bituminised road. Pot-holed. Bedraggled. Innocuous.

Daily, residents access their garages, deliveries are made, walkers take shortcuts.

Nightly, it is avoided. Do not be out at night.

There is hearsay, myth, legend. About a corridor, passageway to a hinterland.

Stories whispered in coffee shops, in pubs. Tales passed within families.

Deal with the devil. Souls signed away.

Riches and pleasures await … for some.

For the rest, the deal’s gone wrong … End Lane.

Weekend Writing Prompt #159

Weekend Writing Prompt #159

Intrepid tumbler, aerialist elite

Flying and falling, fearless and free

Ropes a-climbing, rigorous display

Tackling obstacles, tramp and trapeze

Walking the wire, wowing the crowds

Intrepid performer, unflinching, unafraid

Pushing boundaries, body pummelled

Hoops and balls and ribbons in play

Crashing and flailing, into gracefulness

Beauty in motion. Winning, their way

Weekend Writing Prompt – Abysmal

for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt where the given word is Abysmal and the word limit 93

How do we keep arriving at the same place?

Disrespect, intolerance, atrocity.

Anger, hate, war.

Should it be such an effort

to be sincere, kind, thoughtful

helpful, collaborative, inclusive

Our norm continues to be

Mistrustful, defensive, offensive

Fearful, fear mongering, belligerent

With the best of intentions and assumption of sincerity, I

Misdirect, deflect, protect

Hunker down, build a fence, assume offence

In my heart, I believe and hope that I am more than this

Respectful, hopeful, generous and inclusive

Open-minded, unassuming and impartial

But I am human. I am animal. I am too, Abysmal.
