Picture Prompt-45

They’re just over the hill.  I can’t really see them with all the fog.  I hear their voices so they must be there.  I just can’t see them anymore.  Hurrying over the top of the hill, she still sees no one.  She can hear their voices, but they’re getting fainter. Should see go further?  She looks back, no one there either.

The playground, the families, she couldn’t see anything but fog.  It seemed to be creeping up the hill.  Soon it would overtake where she’s standing.  What then?  She started to panic a little.  Looking forward to the crest of the hill, she notices even the voices are getting more distant.  Where could her friends be?  This was just supposed to be a little game, now she felt tricked and scared.  They must be down there, but then, where is everyone else?  I’m all alone.  The fog is thickening.  The game of tag wasn’t fun any more.  “Where are you?” She yells through the fog.  “Answer me!”

An eerie voice dripping with malice, says”you’re it!”


You, the Heart

At first you were soft

Beating high as a loft

But it didn’t last

And down you were cast

At first happy and glad

The ride turned you sad

Eventually, mad and

You felt unclad.

There are songs that sing

About your fragile strings

It is quite fantastic

How you’re so elastic.


Tell me something good- repost

   What’s good about today?  It’s National Pie Day!!!!  The following is one of my older posts.

Daily Prompt: Tart
There’s one thing especially close to my heart

When the Prompt is fixed on something like tart.

It’s yellow and white, pleases the eye.

Of course you know, it’s a lemon pie!

The filling for me is a tart lemon curd

Not feeling it? Cause I used that word?

We always say filling, it’s the chefs and the cooks

Who besmirch the pudding in all of their books.

But, as usual, I tell this with TMI

I remind you it is my favorite pie.

The crust has to be specially prepared

So it doesn’t absorb lemon juice there

Without being…..dare I say soggy?

You’d need to feed it to your special doggie

Have to use real lemons, not juice from plastic 

There’s where the flavor comes, truly fantastic.

To top off this marvelous delight

A meringue, sweet, fluffy and light.

So that’s my story of making a pie

Tart and sweet both, I tell you no lie.




Tell me Something Good-41

Got it! We girls in the family went to see this movie today:


It was a little upsetting for me in parts because I remembered experiencing this prejudice first hand in the sixties living in Houston, Texas. Even in later years, the division was clear in some towns that had separate facilities for blacks and whites. I did not know of these important women and am so glad to learn about them, even this late. Everyone should see this.


Jujojan-01-22-2017-No Contempt, Just Confusion

I admit it, I get confused easily, but didn’t the Reader post the JJJ dates backwards or is it just me? My time is Mountain Standard Time and trying to keep aware of what day it is on the Reader is slightly confusing. Am I the only one? Of course I am, at least that’s what I’m told whenever I ask.
