“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”
Hello there! Today’s prompt for Stream of Consciousness from Linda G. Hill is: “…write about whatever is beside you when you read this prompt. Not when you sit down to write, but whatever is beside you right now. Take note of it if you think you might forget. Enjoy!”
So, I read this prompt while jogging in a deserted field area this afternoon. Em from Earthly Brain shared a prompt as well: “ If I could learn a lesson from the clouds, it would be …“. An impromptu poem materialized in my head. Enjoy!
Puffy cotton balls reflecting brilliant light Today I greet the day as it comes Drifting along with the wind
It’s somewhat difficult for me to play hide-and-go seek as I often gleam behind nature
No matter though, Sunny and I Our friendship is billions of years old Together on the best and worst of days
A generous spirit today Frolicking among you Revealing a wondrous site
Enjoying an evening stroll with mom as the crimson sun sets Superstitious, I intentionally step over the cracks in the sidewalks Didn’t want to tempt fate and break my mother’s back Lively chatter and smiles spread throughout the neighborhood
Passing a yard, we stumble upon a lime tree hanging over a fence. Delighted, mom jumps up and plucks a leaf as the branch springs back She tears the leaf in half, rubs it between her fingers, and hands it to me “Smell it sweetie, and you will be amazed.”
Curiously, I stared at the seemingly normal green leaves Stunned as I bring the leaves closer to my nose to smell Breathing in an incredibly fragrant natural perfume Relaxing my mind. Creating lasting pleasant and revitalizing feelings
Thirsty and sweaty upon arrival to our home We squeeze some limes and make icy limeade beverages Cool and refreshing to the parched tongue Citrus inspiration to the rescue of grateful souls
Good morning! Hope you enjoyed your weekend! Cee’s photo of her red dahlia reminds me of some tissue paper flower decorations. Here is a shot of some flowers in Vietnam! The pink yellow petals fascinated me for a few minutes after I took the shot. Have a wonderful day!
