From where I’m sitting – Friday Fictioneers

So glad to be back to the Friday Fictioneers. I've really missed this group, writers, and friends. Thanks to Rochelle for hosting and to Ted Strutz for this wonderful prompt. It's a goodie. Here's an impromptu poem, I guess. It may not make a whole lot of sense.... Hope everyone is well! (Poetry: 100 words) … Continue reading From where I’m sitting – Friday Fictioneers

For Pulse, Orlando

A poem for Pulse, Orlando. I needed to read this today. Maybe you do, too. Thanks to gunroswell for these words.


Rantings Of A Third Kind

Remembering the victims of Pulse, Orlando

our pulse skipped a beat today

“Peace and love among all those souls, who roam this planet, called Earth” Gun Roswell

For Pulse, Orlando

What a world we live in
When feeling comfortable in your own skin
Is frowned upon by others
Leaving your heart smothered

Love, peace and happiness
We all strive for nothing less
May that be a lesson for us all
Young, old and very small

a rose for pulse

To all the mothers of the world, I wish you a very Happy Mother's Day!

Grassy Knoll – Friday Fictioneers

Visitors gather at the grassy knoll, A private spot for nibbling biscuits. They patter and jabber, And feast on the views. They laugh and they wonder, The woodlands enchant. Isn't it here the story foretells of the Beast hidden beneath? Footfalls traverse nature's stairs, and slacken the soil, Uprooting the rot below. A troll eternally grinds his … Continue reading Grassy Knoll – Friday Fictioneers
