Blustery night

Outside
The wind whips up
Rain falls
Bouncing off the ground
And windows
Inside
Me and Nitro
Are cosy and warm
In our cocoon
With the heat on
I hear the rain
Hammer my window paynes
Oh how glad I am
Not to be
Outside on this wet night

Fandangos february expression 23rd Feb. 2020

https://fivedotoh.com/2020/02/23/fandangos-february-expressions-23/

Our phrase for today is:

Actions speak louder than words

******

When it comes to being kind, actions definitely speak louder than words. Showing someone that you care, being there for them in their time of need, that is kindness.

Smiling at a friend, loved one, giving them a hug, being there to wipe away their tears, being there to listen when they need an ear or need to talk something through, that is kindness.

When it comes to being kind, your actions speak louder than any words ever could. Always be kind, show it, show you care, by doing little things, we can all talk, but can we all act on those words?

#3TC Feb. 23rd 2020

Di has given us the following 3 words to use today in the #3tc challenge.
MIX
INJUSTICE

SQUIRM

Danny hated injustice of any kind. He sat and thought, what was he going to do. How could he fix this?
Dont squirm, danny said to frank, people will know this is a hard one for us to fix!
Frank threw his eyes up to heaven!
Lets ask dave to throw his two cents worth into the mix, surely he’ll know what we should do to fix this injustice, he said.
Ok, Danny said, I’m on it!

Weekend writing prompt 117:antipathy

Sammi Cox’s Rules:

The challenge is simple: each week you will be given an exact number of words you can use to write a poem or piece of prose. You can use any format or style you like; go wherever your inspiration takes you. The only rules are these:
•your poem/prose must contain this week’s word. The word does not have to count towards the exact word count total – it can be in the title, or the first letters of the lines of a poem can spell it out – you can be as creative as you want as long as it’s there somewhere.
•the length of your poem/prose must match the number of words stated in this week’s challenge. No more. No less.

I feel
so much
antipathy
for some people
I want
to shake them
and say
You really irk me!
but I don’t
I am far to
Nice to do that

Total word count, 30 words!

Novas random word of the day, sapient

Dawn looked at adam. Her blue eyes pierced right through him as she stared intently at him.
But adam, she said, with a huge sigh, you know I am right! I am far more sapient than you are!
Women are way more sapient!
Adam kept disagreeing with her! No! He shouted, It isn’t so!
Oh yeah? well then, give me 3 good reasons why it isn’t so!
Adam couldn’t give even one. So after much thinking, he gave in and walked off.
Dawn had won the argument, see?
She always knew women were more sapient than men.
They had all the answers to arguments about that too!
She decided to go see what all her friends were up to and to tell them I won an argument!
Meanwhile, Adam was busy trying to think of reasons for why men and women differed so much.
I suppose I’ll never really know, he said, as he stared glumly into his cup of tea.

Novas random word of the day, descry

Oh my
I descry a guy
walking along
In the morning sun
What is he doing
Where is he going?
Who is this guy?
Can he see me?
Does he know how curious I am?
Does he know I want to know
What he’s up to?
People watching
That is what I like to do
Walking along
As I descry
In the distance
The same guy
Making his way
In my direction
Now picking up his pace
Oh my
He’s getting closer to me
I think its time I duck now
Before he accuses me
Of being a spy!
