Posted: 17 Sep 2020 00:58

So enjoyed this contest, 500 words is an enjoyably challenging length.

Congratulations to all who entered, the top ten and in particular Blackdog, Wordpusher715, and Mendalla.

Thanks to those who organised and judged this competition.

this sounds fun. might try my hand at writing something for it. great idea, guys. :)

The more the merrier, Rach.

My entry, The Berry Girl , is up now.

also nice, they're short enough that i can read most of them - tomorrow. lol i have a date with a bathtub right now - going to soak until i am prune like. i am sort in places i am not normally sore! :) $:

Probably the wrong site to speculate on the where and why of those sore places, Rach ... presumable your entry wont be about Portland ... catch you soon prune face, and running toothy2

My entry is up though I cant link it in my forum signature; maybe I haven't posted enough. It is called Coral is the colour of love and is, surprisingly for those familiar with my other writing, set in Australia.

Can I post this, a voice from the south. Thursday evening and the southerly change rolled through. The temperature dropped from around 38 degrees C to about 26 degrees C. Such welcome relief as it has been so hot and humid today. And the heat and humidity of February still in front of us. Hope you all have a good day, and if you can send some snow down our way, please do so.

Golden Words

Mentally prospecting, Needing that perfect word. Meaningful, like frisson, Not discordant; like impact’s not a verb. My mind fog thins, achievement? Still incorporeal, maybe transient; seemingly onomatopoeia. Write it down! It dissolved, cloaked in mist, No! Cliches, here I come....

Recommended Read Coral is a colour of love

As autumn leaves fell, our lives’ hue darkened. Covid-19 grounded Sarah’s corporate-lawyer lifestyle. We fretted; could infection accompany me home from the hospital? Challenging times, despite dad’s toilet paper stockpile. It pays not to giggle when your girlfriend repeatedly tries to shoo our cat away from her Zoom meeting. “Annie, stop it!” Sarah’s tone was so testy. Scooping up the...

Challenge : Linda Ronstadt - CuriousAnnie

"I just recorded this," the woman in a lived-in Betsey Johnson dress shyly said. Then she sang the opening line, "I'm going back someday..." How dare she sing Roy Orbison, I thought, she is not worthy. But my ears betrayed my instant judgement. Blue Bayou soared with new emotional depth, the voice rich and sonorous. I knew I was privileged to be there, to hear Linda Ronstadt sing Roy for...

Love rejoices with the truth

Lightening's strike Unexpectedly, out of a clear sky Lies laying waste Love's delights?   No, honesty is our key Your words set us free To rejoice in God's truth Rightous love is our humanity   For he looks kindly on our choice to love Trusts us with his gift of love And hopes that we will patiently  Persevere in love's labour won      ...

Falling In Love

Eyes lock A thrown switch Magnetic flows Drawn to you   Stepping out Over cynical cliffs A leap of faith Potentially us   We do click That seatbelt sound Falling safely Protecting us   Soft splashdown In love's sea Fatalism banished I'm loved by you    ...

The seasons of love

The days and seasons cycle rhythmically Patterns determined at time’s first dawn The tapestry of hearts wasn’t then written in stone Its left to us weavers to spin love’s silky threads   As you two weaved the first stiches of love The golden summer warmed your spinning fingers Yet I worked on our pattern in winter’s gloomy light That your stiches matched mine heated my heart   ...
