Good morning here on the prairie. I've got the coffee brewing. Plenty of tea for the tea drinkers, Scott and E. Strong coffee for Bill and me. Sara, we will brew you some iced tea. Who else will stop by today?

I'd love to have the next dance, E. Maybe someday our other new dancer, Gabi, will stop by. I do know that Lizzie loves to dance.

Eleven entries into the contest now. Gee, now is there gonna be someone out of the top ten? Maybe we will have a top eleven.

Sorry, Pliny. "The aim of this game is to create a new word by changing one letter without rearranging the order of the remaining letters." I'll go back to the last post before yours that went awry by our dear, E. The one where you changed Flay to Ally.

Flay - Play

Peen Goes to a Swimming Pool

Peen slipped through a gate in the wire mesh fencing, between pink oleanders, and out onto the deck of the swimming pool. He stood proudly in the simmering heat of the summer sun. His splayed feet were shod in sandals. He wore a cabana shirt dotted with green sea turtles. Added to that were Bermuda shorts in a purplish plaid pattern hanging loosely. A straw hat with pompom dangles completed...

May We Return

May we return to the place, we've never been? I knew you once when we were young, you must have lived before. Yearning for a time when youth enveloped me in joy; were you there? It seems you must have been though impossible, to be sure. Not yet born. But living, alive, in my yearning for that time. Knowing the pleasures, the moods of sharing the precious times together. Browsing,...

A questing thought occurred with a restless glimpse across the arcade at her face. In the background, the rat-a-tat-tatt bing-a-bing-a-bing of the games surrounded what was a rather sedate and deeply pure entrance into a meditative state. One of internalization and winsome, drifting dreams. Simply put her facade exhibited a world inside that seemed to somehow beckon. What might one do to...

An abandoned quarry. High-walled stone pit. At the bottom strolling through newfound friendship. Looking up, a bold climber's dream. "Let's do it! We can climb it." Overreachingly confident--young. One led the way. Not too difficult really. Foolish? The next followed. Shorter, smaller, smiling--at first.  One scrambled gaining the top edge, turned about. The other grimaced. So close....

Flowers and Wine

Gifts were left upon your front doorstep. Flower bulbs to plant, then sprout and bloom. Bottled wine from vineyards near and far. The ones who know you best display concern. Their hopes and dreams, and smiling tenderness. The times require distancing today, but here is what you need to safely stay at home where nothing harmful may draw near. Necessities of life may be enjoyed, from...

Magical Deception

The only true beauty in her life. It shall always be a secret. Deception is the thrill, wonder, and exquisite pain she feels. She absorbs it each time surreptitious contact is made.  Complete and utter trust. Accepted and used. She lives in wonderment that she found it. Just for her. Just for them. To share. Only a dreamy fantasyland.  But more real than reality in the...

Love & Affection Challenge - A Bibliophile's Sonnet

We walked a lane in Wales one morn in May Our eyes took note of blooms on shrubs quite near. We sniffed some sprigs near Hay on Wye that day, Each bush had scents and smells both clear and dear. A whiff was like old books on stands and racks,   Each big thick tome could match that scent so strong. And we had smelled a few in bins and stacks The smell was just the same, we were not wrong. ...

And When The Morning Comes

Do we know, can we see, will we feel what we've known, what we've seen, what we've felt. At the moments we knew, simply seeing, and feeling, that instant, most precious,  the most treasured point in our lives. For so quickly it seemed, all our times were as one,  but so short in the paths of the world.  Just a minute it took, that was all, then we knew, we could see what we were,...

The Whacking of the Trees

  Whack!  Whack! There was a long pause and then, once again... Whack! She tossed the fallen limb down onto the forest floor beside the trail. It had served its purpose. Then she nodded at the hikers who were passing hesitantly by her along the pathway.  This was the last time. The latest results showed no sign of cancer. Perhaps not gone. But no sign. It was good enough. She...

All That Matters

"I adore you" The words were spoken heard and accepted with gratitude and delight Not always offered aloud in the past even when understood within the trust of a heart in need The adoration of a chorus of friends and lovers from life that passed sincerely revealed The latest to be tendered this approbation in words as the solace of destined sublimity and jubilant embrace The embrace...

A Comedy

When I was young and loved humor Comedy was a movie that I knew  Where I would be laughing out loud While watching with glee the whole time Growing up, that belief had changed Comedy was a funny stage play Where you could watch people act While the ending was comically tragic Life has been sometimes like that It started with laughter and smiles But the ending was now so painful Even...

People are just like clouds That float above the sky Without real direction But beauteous from afar Winds can push us forward And then may push us back Might even be the ones That scatter us apart Sometimes they blow gently To make us into one Other times much stronger Thus breaking us in twain Sometimes there is darkness It makes it hard to see Even light in slivers Can barely...

The Wall

My closed fists keep banging on the wall. My lungs hurt so much from losing air. It's becoming hard to breathe. I never stop pounding even as I can see blood flow out from my bruised hands. My mind is in a panic and the fear starts to creep up through my whole body because I don't know how to swim and the wall is giving me no respite so I can get my breath. I have begun to feel weak...

Strong heart is beating in a harmony, Each movement set angelically with pride.   So subtle that it matches musically, To center stage exquisite form does glide On pointe, on tiptoe, swaying with the tune The wind caresses, gently singing free. So calm her soul, like summer days in June But every step is like a storm tossed sea Behind sweet lips and eyes, typhoons may hide, With calmness...

The Bluebirds In My Heart

  “There’s a bluebird in my heart that Wants to get out, But I’m too tough for him, I say, stay in there, I’m not going To let anyone see You” Charles Bukowski     When loneliness became a part of me In such a way that others could not see. My heart forgot to feel, it hurt so much, And locked itself up tight against a touch.   The bluebirds came to...
