“Young Love Returns”  by: Marilyn Griffin

We look at each…

Let’s do it…

I bet I can reach…

The idea’s lit!…

We lose our clothes…

Racing fast…

No one knows…

Living the past…

In younger days…

We swam here…

As sunlight lays…

And shadows leer

We jump in…

Hearts beating fast…

“Big Fat Hen!…

If your last!”

The cold water…

Stills our minds…

It doesn’t matter…

The river winds…

We laugh and screech…

Memories come…

As we reach…

Bodies numb…

We were kids…

Ago, so long…

Now we’re big…

Nothing wrong!

Touches warm…

There’s such a rush…

Sets alarm…

Words are hushed…

Kisses fast…

Bodies touch…

Let this last…

Love so much!

Daily Prompt: The Cat Says Meow

Write a story about yourself from the perspective of an object, thing, animal, or another person.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us PERSPECTIVE.

………………………………………

“Here she comes…

She meets me every morning… after she makes coffee…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

One cup for her… but, it seems she makes it especially for him…

I think that’s sweet !…

She sits down and it’s not long until that cat animal comes rubbing up against her leg…

She seems to really like this cat…

She calls it Baby Jill… and rubs it’s head… plays with it awhile with a silly string… and then looks over at me…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m already turned on… and I’m not all furry… so she doesn’t pet me… but, she seems to enjoy my company!… I’ve heard her say she loves her time with me!… and she just added a pretty Autumn Wallpaper to my face… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

That’s a good thing! …

She has a light that sits beside me… and it is turned on… I love the warmth from the bulb that shines on my keys…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

She presses my buttons… and reads for a long time… switching from news… celebraties, Facebook… a game she seems hooked on… weather… TV Listings…

and then she heads to a site that I have inside me called WordPress

She reads her friend’s words and then seems to contemplate for a few minutes and begins to hit my keys with a strong touch… as if on a mission…

I think this is when she has a story in her head and needs to get it out before she loses it!… She writes funny things sometimes… and if she could hear me she would know I liked it!… Then other times… her writings are very sad… with deep emotions…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I kinda like this lady…

She is always coming to see me at different times of the day…sometimes a short while and then sometimes she seems to stay all day!…

She sometimes takes a cloth and gives me a good rub down… and sprays something that keeps my keys from sticking….OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The area where I sit is sometimes strewn with pens, papers, a calendar… a cord to her camera… a cord to her cell phone… a drink… sometimes ebven a snack!…Oh, how I wish I could have a bite sometimes!… but, would probably overload me!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Sometimes we listen to soft music from her radio… I like the channel she keeps on… just barely playing in the background… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAmaking me feel a little sleepy… I guess she feels the same way… because after listening for awhile late at night… she turns me off… cleans up my area… and as she says good night to that cat… I pretend she is talking to me…

and I whisper back…

Goodnight Sweet Lady!”

Frizz gives us a challenge to writing or posting photos with a letter of the alphabet…

“K” is this week…

Immediately I think of my Granddaughter… She is a “Kennedy”… a name beginning with K…

I couldn’t imagine calling a little baby girl “Kennedy”…

and now it fits her perfectly…

Here is my “K” girl…

K is for Kennedy!

Kinetically Kind!… Always in motion and very friendly!

Like a Karaoke Kaleidoscope … Entertaining and Ever-changing

“Visitor”      by: Marilyn Griffin

He came up beside…

Gliding smooth and quiet…

Do you want a ride? …

Or a juicy bite? ..

I’m just rowing…

In your water home…

As I see you blowing…

Likes to roam…

I feel small…

In my boat of wood…

I’m in awe…

As I should…

So huge…

So graceful…

I can’t budge…

Seems quite playful…

As you gaze me down…

Swimming on by…

A last flip…

Water splashing my eye…

I hear your voice…

Oh, “Little person”…

As I rejoice…

You weighing a ton!…

The water of green…

Seems to swallow you…

Over the boat I lean…

As I say, “Ade’u!”

The letter “I”…

http://flickrcomments.wordpress.com/2012/08/28/story-challenge-letter-i/

a fellow blogger… Frizz by name… has this on Tuesdays each week… Going through the alphabet…

First time I’ve participated… but, quite fun…

The letter for this Tuesday being “I”

My first thought was about me …”I” !

but, then my “Idea” Box caught my eye…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I made it to hold ideas that come to me… in case I couldn’t think of something to write about sometime…

Actually that never happens

Look around… take a walk… listen to conversations…

The world is so full of “ideas”… even in my small part of it!

I opened the box… and just found blank papers I had cut to put in my box…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

No ideas there…

My ideas are in my head…

Rattling around sometimes…

Pushing me sometimes…

Momentarily making me stop and just listen sometimes…

but, always flowing…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Ideas… an interesting concept… Thoughts that suddenly materialize inside us…

Giving us things to make our lives interesting…

Idea … The definition I choose…”A plan of action!”…

Daily Prompts’ These Boots Were Made for Walking

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/08/24/daily-prompt-walk/, DP, Daily Prompt

Tell us about your favorite pair of shoes, and where they’ve taken you.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us WALK

Favorite pair of shoes???

Hmmm…

Summertime shoes are my favorite… hla0014

But, actually what God gave me when I was born… are my favoriteCB009902

Yes, I’m from Kentucky..k13078151. maybe that’s a clue…

Hatfield

I go barefoot all of the time!…k13775721

Inside… outside…

Summer… winter…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This morning… and no shoes on yet!

No, it doesn’t hurt!…

I’ve probably toughened them up over the years…

k11954945

I remember when we were young…

We kept our shoes in a certain spotjhe0030

I went barefoot all day… but, when Daddy came home from work… Mom would say, “You better get your shoes on!”… and we quickly did…

Why?… do you ask… was my Dad so obsessed with us wearing shoes

Because he was always building… He literally built our home himself… and so there were always nails… screws… splinters everywhere… k3474038k3192103

He hated the thought of us puncturing our feet…

dki0014

Of course we waded in the creek all of the time… stepping on stones… water trickling over our toes… the feel of dirt and grass cushioning our feet…k0036302

No wonder I hate shoes to this day!…k11954941

My feet had freedom all of the time I grew up…

I remember popping the hot tar bubbles on the road as we walked everywhere… and having to cream them down to get the tar off…k10149395

So… to say what are my favorite shoes… if I HAD to choose.just a pair of comfortable flipflops

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Bought these on Vacation… I keep them by the door… to slip on when I go to the store…

My feet still free and breathing…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

“part” of my collection of shoes…

I know!… I need to straighten them up… maybe another day!… so many more important things to do!…

like go barefoot!  u11004267

Birds Deliver      by: Marilyn Griffin

Why were they flying so low?

Their blackness making shadows across the field…

I didn’t know…

As I dashed and bent to yield…

Fields of corn…

Place chosen to hide…

Mind going to where born…

Where all had died…

Beaks missing my head…

Just by inches…

My feet feeling like lead…

Shelter in low ditches?

I’ve been running long…

Escaping at last…

For things I did wrong…

Leaving my past…

I hear dogs…

Barks muffled in air…

Hiding under logs…

As they grow near…

Long way to go…

Directions confused…

Creek by hill low…

My mind seems mused…

Scent washed away?

By water flowing…

Chance to lay…

As sun is lowing…

Those pesky birds of black…

Cawing loudly…

They’re at my back…

Wings flaying soundly…

Will they not stop!

My chance is fleeting…

They swoop down on top…

As I’m pleading…

They’ve shown the way…

My life is over…

As I pray…

Taking cover…

My coveralls of blue…

Shine out…

As I turn to view…

Hearing their shout…

My luck fades…

As birds lead the way…

I’ve been made…

By birds of prey…
