With shaking hands
and a pounding heart
I link your arm
you guide me in to your office
we sit down
and start to talk
I’ve never met you before
but you tell me there is no pressure to talk to you
that I should only
tell you what I feel comfortable to talk about
you are honest with me
telling me you don’t know much about did
I appreciate the honesty
it helps me feel safe
I begin to open up
Trusting that you can help
You will know what to do
With much trepidation
I tentatively start to talk
And before I know it
I’ve said so much
But your so easy to talk to
One day
You’ll make a fine doctor
You have what it takes
Thank you for making me
Feel so comforted and at ease today

#3TC challenge

It was a secret that she liked to eat marshmallows. She just adored them. With any luck, nobody would find out, because, if they did, then she’d have to share the bag with people! And she didnt want to do that! Sharing is caring? No, I dont think so, she thought! She wanted the whole lot to herself! Marshmallows were her comfort food!

Fowc: A scary dream

Todays word is scary!
eyes are wide
sit bolt upright
wide awake now
just had a scary dream
as I wipe my eyes
and manage to get my heart to stop pounding
I turn on the light
oh but it is bright outside
a new day has begun
the world is awake
and scary dreams
arent real
they are only
in my memory
go away, scary dreams
I’m facing a new day
facing the sun
good morning, world

Fowc: Red rash!

Welcome to December 21, 2019 and to Fandangos One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). Its designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each days word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Todays word is rash.

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.

The issue with pingbacks not showing up seems to have been resolved, but you might check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.


I’ve got the itch! A really red rash!

From what, mom said.

From excitement! I am almost fit to burst!

Mom giggled at me. Your such a big kid, she said.

I know! I love christmas!

I just love it sooo much!

And I love seeing your face on christmas morning, mom said. Its a picture!

So glad I’m spending this christmas with mom!

Its such a special time for us, always has been!

Now to figure out what will takes the red hives of excitement away! Or are they red hives from eating too much chocolate? Who knows!

Frosty night

as night falls
and the world sleeps
a frosty chill
is in the air
stand outside
long enough
and you’ll begin
to freeze too
dont get
by the winter wind
stay indoors
and watch as
the frost covers
the world
outside your window
and you
snuggle up
in your warm bed
good night world!

And the key is…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is key. Use it any way youd like. Have fun!

the key to success
is not to make a big mess
take it slow
and pace yourself as you go
slow and steady
then count to three
if you want to have success
then hold your head high
and your sure to progress

My little motivational poem of the day!

First line Friday!

Dylan hosts first line friday, and I am participating for the first time this week!

It is First Line Friday! Welcome and lets get writing.

Below, I give you the first line, and you all get to write the rest.

Your line for this week is:

Never burn a bridge you could push them off later.


Never burn a bridge, you could push them off later.

This has been said to me so much

By so many people


What does it mean?

For me, it means, dont rush

dont rush to end things

with someone

you might regret it

the you could push them off later?

what does that mean?

for me, it means

Wait for them to do something that causes you to want to end things

Then, before they will do it

you do it first

At least for me

Never burn a bridge

You could push them off later


Mulling it over still even now

Its such a profound line
