Missing!

Did anyone notice I’d gone?

and my postings this week totalled one?

Was there anyone there

who gave half a care?

I think that the answer is NONE!

 

I did find the time for some reading

of stories and facts and hearts bleeding.

I’d add the odd thought

On those blogs that had caught

my attention whilst I was proceeding

 

We’ve been on vacation all week.

Sun, sea, and the sand we did seek.

We journeyed together,

were lucky with weather,

with only one day that was bleak!

Here is this week’s prompt and my contribution. Check out all the fabulous entries here.

Magic 8 ball, oh dear, what a blow

I’ve not seen one, so how can I know

how it’s meant to work

I feel such a berk

My ignorance now on full show!

Look here where Kat Myrman has this wonderful challenge to tax our creative souls. Just take her photo prompt and write a story, inspired by it, in 140 characters or fewer.

Here is this week’s very appropriate prompt and my contribution. I decided on a limerick, just because I want to:

He thought it incredibly grand.
At the end of the day
the heart washed away
but his love had a ring on her hand.

Learning Latin lament

This self generated on my morning walk, although, if I’m honest, it is far from the truth!

Learning Latin helped me tremendously in understanding language generally.

Agricola, agricolae, agricolum

As far as I’m concerned stick Latin up your bum

Quod erat demonstrandum

Just seems so very random

When declining Latin nouns by rule of thumb!
