Healing thought for Monday

Kind hearts are the gardens, kind thoughts are the roots, kind words are the flowers, kind deeds are the fruits. Take care of your garden and keep out the weeds, fill it with sunshine, kind words, and kind deeds.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Healing words for Saturday

The common idea that success spoils people by making them vain, egotistic and self-complacent is erroneous; on the contrary it makes them, for the most part, humble, tolerant and kind.
W. Somerset Maugham

3 things, pl 116

Welcome to the Three Things Challenge. Every day at 10PM (PST) I will post three seemingly unconnected things that will, hopefully, ignite your muse. You

your muse takes you, and bring us along for the ride. Use 3TC as a tag if you’d like and link back to this prompt, or post your link in the comments below so others can find you.

Happy Writing!

Today’s prompt: square, train, grasshopper

******

Little grasshopper

So small

But so agile

Hops to and fro

Irritating he can be

To me

I wonder as I watch him go

Will he bite?

Hope he doesnt reach me

Or get on me

I am so nervous of bugs

That I’d freak out

Well, heres hoping

I dont have to find out

If he likes the taste of blood

Heres hoping

He’ll hop away

Go somewhere else

Into a square hole maybe?

I walk to where I am bording my train

Still thinking about the walk I took

In the woods

And the little grasshopper I saw in the grass

Today’s prompt: surgeon, Chicago, doorknob

The surgeon lived in Chicago. He loved where he lived. He worked in a leading hospital, and he loved his job. He saved peoples lives every day, what could be a better job than that!
He had gone down to the hospital café to have breakfast. He sighed happily as he sipped his coffee! Suddenly the doorknob turned and another surgeon walked in.
Hurry, hurry he said! Your needed upstairs!
Quickly they both left their cups on the table and rushed out of the room!

Prompt C (photo):

*****

We close in 5 minutes, said the member of staff to the lady who was looking at the perfume.
The lady looked around, Macy’s was so big!
She felt hungry, and wished they were staying open longer, there was a macdonalds on the 7th floor!
But back to the perfumes. Which one to buy!
She sprayed a few! Oh I just cant decide she mused.
Turning from the display she decided she would wait. She had to go meet her friends in a local irish bar. New York city had the best irish bars!
She walked quickly out of the store, she didn’t want to be late!

Fowc with fandango may 30th

Welcome to May 30, 2019 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “humdrum.”

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.

*******
My morning is so busy! I am caught up in the humdrum of activity that morning brings!
I’ve eaten breakfast, showered, texted my sister, called my mom, etc.
The humdrum of activity in the morning never stops!
I’ve been awake since 5 AM! That is when my morning began!
I love busy mornings! The time just seems to fly by!
Here is a little poem to talk about the humdrum of my day!

busy busy, so busy
I can feel
That humdrum
Of whirling thoughts
And activity
Taking me away
Until
I just have to
Slow down
