QUESTIONS

What did you learn the hard way?

What I learned the hard way is not to have expectations from anyone. Neither family nor friends. It saves me from a lot of heartbreak and pain. The result is that if people do some good, it comes as a very pleasant surprise, and if they don’t, I wasn’t expecting them to, in the first place.

Which activities make you lose track of time?

Many activities make me lose track of time;

Reading

Blogging

Playing games on my phone

Watching a good movie or tv show

Why do we seem to think of others the most after they’re gone?

I think while we have those people in our lives, we take them for granted and think that we will call them or meet them “soon”. But life is unexpected and much too short to put off…

Sunday Writing Prompt – Poetic Justice

Keep it alive

Sara is our host for Sunday Writing Prompt

Welcome back to,Sunday Writing Prompt!

Poetic Justice: “An outcome in which vice is punished and virtue rewarded, usually in a manner peculiarly or ironically appropriateretribution for one’s actions.”

The KICKER for this week is, I would prefer anyone who feels inspired by this prompt to write in apoeticfashion. It doesn’t have to rhyme, but there should be a tempo, pace, a personal cadence.

♾♾♾

You did your worst with impunity 

Thinking that no one is watching


Oppression and ridicule your weapons

Children, defenseless and innocent your victims



But there is a balance in nature


The bad deeds do catch up with you in the end


The punishment may not be visible for all to see


But you know that what you did is taking it’s toll




You can hide from others but not from yourself

The 2021 Daily Writing Challenge – June 14

Jo Hawk

2021 Daily Writing Challenge Q2

June is off to a hot start. The weather gurus are forecasting near ninety-degree temperatures for the next ten days, and I am searching for activities that don’t make me sweat. The sun is shining, and my fingers ache to dance on the keyboard. I think I will let them loose and let them play, and maybe I will give them a challenge. So far this week, I have written just over 3,200 words. Not a bad total for the first five days, but I think we can do more.

For June, I am attempting to apply the demanding double-down trick on my standard word counts. Most months, I log around 12,000 words. This month I’m shooting for twice that amount or 24,000 words for the month for approximately 1,000 words per day. I do not know if I can accomplish this, but I’m game. Besides, they don’t call it…

Heartstring Eulogies

“Tell me, do you remember
the promises you made of forever?”

Do you remember my fingertips as they caressed your skin? Or the bite of my nails down your back? How about the brush of my lips against yours? Or when I gripped the back of your neck and threaded my fingers into your hair for a deeper taste? What about the nights we told stories, and laughed until dawn? Or the promises you made of forever? After all these nights sitting in silence, do you ever think about all we had, and everything we lost? Have you ever thought, just once, that maybe, I was the one that got away?

Was I the one that got away?

all I need ~

tornadoday

would a lifetime
be sufficient
for days I have to live
a moment come
ten thousand more
I plead
a sun beyond this aching
mornings to recall
– another touch
is all the time I need

with will to choose
as death refused –
some other grace
where graces lay –
the creeks will rise
the barn will fall away

somewhere
strangers gather
to the shoulder
down the lane –
and no one lives
no one cares
to wonder why
we came

why I linger
as love decided –
beyond what time
can prove
tis for this one
remembered –
another life
I’ve come
for you
