Fowc with fandango, gratis

http://fivedotoh.com/2019/06/16/fowc-with-fandango-gratis/

Welcome to June 16, 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 “gratis.”

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.

That cup of coffee is gratis, said the shop assistant to the lady.

Why thank you mam, she said.

I truly appreciate you!

More people should do kind deeds!

Indeed they should, said the store clerk.

With a smile and a wave, she turned and said to the lady…

Have a terrific day!

You too, the lady said beaming.

She took her steaming hot mug of coffee and walked out of the store.

That cup of coffee might be the only hot drink she’d have today.

Being homeless and on the streets, she never really knew when she would eat or drink.

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
don’t have to use all three things if you don’t want to. There are no restrictions on length, style, genre, or anything. Simply read the prompt, see where
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

I wake from a bad dream…

Woke up from

a bad dream

tears flow

eyes wide shut

not wanting to see

the devastation

the chaos

that bad dreams brings

wanting the nightmare to just end

right now

so I open my ears

listen to the morning birds

chirp, chirp

they take my fears away

as i dream of pretty colors

flapping wings

and bird song

welcome to a new day

Outside my window…

I decided to distract and do a Writing prompt…the prompt I chose is Outside the Window: What’s the weather outside your window doing right now? If that’s not inspiring, what’s the weather like somewhere you wish you could be?

The weather outside tonight is cold and dry, we had rain earlier though!
I am glad to be inside! I don’t like to be cold!
I enjoy listening to the rain pitter pattering off the windows!
There was hailstone earlier tonight! It was huge!
Tomorrow I will hope for sun!
How about your weather? What is the weather like where you are right now?

In other words, sunset

SUNSET

Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less
Use the picture and/or the word sunset as inspiration
Link back to this post

If you are on WordPress this will create a pingback.
If you are not on WordPress put a link to your post in the comments.
You can also post your story or poem in the comments.

Beautiful sunset

Oh how I love to watch

The fading sun

As it goes behind the clouds

For another day

Fowc with fandango…dabble

Welcome to June 6, 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 want to dabble in magic, mark said. In magic? His mom quipped, you dont believe in all that, do you?

Mark looked at her. Of course I do, mom! You gotta believe!

His mom tutted. Honestly, mark! Magic is a fools game.

You could dabble in something far more meaningful that that! Why do you have to have such outrageous hobbies?

I dont care, Mark said. Magic it is!

Then he went online to look for spells, as his mom went to find someone, anyone who would listen to her lectures about her sons hobby.
