It’s one of those mornings. 🙄 I am sharing this with MLMM’s writing prompt, Tormented, because it fits the theme much better than what I wrote yesterday.
Ugly. Fat. means
Unwanted. Failure. since
Unintelligibly. Fearful brain
Won’t let her get off this
Ubiquitous, fettering train.
This was inspired by FOWC: Roar and MLMM’s Sunday writing prompt, Tormented. Honestly, I’m pretty proud of myself for not taking this is a really dark direction! However, I am going to include the original image from MLMM:
This is for MLMM’s Saturday Mix. Our challenge today (or yesterday) is to use these pairs of opposites: save / spend and shallow / deep.
My attempt at a Jisei (Japanese death poem) for DVerse MTB. I’m not sure if I did this correctly; I did not use a haikai form but still tried to give it the same style as one. I’m also linking this to MLMM’s Tale Weaver, which is about beginnings. This was inspired by an actual experience I had yesterday, not that I literally saw a ghost, but it felt like it, in a way.

For this and that from MLMM, and for DVerse’s quadrille Monday (not late! just depressing!). I promise I’m not like this all the time in real life. “Possibility” is an optimistic word, and I could have taken it in a positive direction, but that is not what happened. Maybe I will try again later. Anyway, without further ado…. Continue reading
For the Saturday Mix “Rhyme Time,” two days late. Of course, completing challenges later in the week is not an aberration for me.

For MLMM’s Tale Weaver, the theme is “Over the Top.” I used “above” as a synonym. I am also sharing with DVerse OLN.
Soar, attaining sunlit heights
Not like Icarus —
Simply feeling caresses
From daytime, on upturned face
For this installment of Heeding Haiku with Chèvrefeuille, we are writing about colors. I wrote first about the coloring that I like to do, but then I saw the flowers in my family’s garden and found them inspiring. Shared also with the Writers’ Pantry.
lovely new dresses
this season’s latest fashion
demure blooms display —
how can I be sorrowful,
‘midst this exquisite brightness?
For FOWC: Magnitude and MLMM’s Saturday Mix, for which the “opposing forces are freeze/melt and work/rest.
What magnitude earthquake
Will it take, to shake
Everything back into place?
How much work do we need
To exert, in order to
Return to rest again?
When fears cause lives
To freeze, can even clear
Reason melt steel anxiety?
