No time for pen and paper
This is all you get
From my family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!!
Most friends call me Kat
The others call me Momma
Some don’t even call.
Wife, mother, sister
Maid, writer, confidant, friend
Short order cook too.
I’m the only girl
In a house loaded with boys
I am out numbered.
I like many things
Soccer, wine and chocolate
Don’t forget coffee!!
Sand between my toes
The colors of a sunrise
Smelling burning leaves.
Holding Hubby’s hand
A piece of cheesy pizza
Spring rain, a clean house.
I don’t like spiders
Ironing, clowns and onions
Heights and loud talkers.
Doing dishes – yuck!
Conform to society?
Not this sweet Lassie!
I can’t touch my toes
Can touch my nose with my tongue
Can’t sing worth a darn.
So now you can say
This Momma Lassie you know
For better or worse.
This post is for Trifecta: Week Fifty-One (Anniversary Challenge). The first paragraph was written a year ago by Joules and was the first-ever Trifecta response. Then BetaRules continued the story with 100 words. My job was to continue the story. Her is my 100 word response. Enjoy!
Charts and optimal dates and preferential temperatures. One line or two. As if she could summon whatever it is that makes up the human soul as easily as she could a cab on a busy New York avenue.
Her mind wandered back to that moment so many years ago. Despite her nervousness, she had known then that whatever the outcome, it would be all right. It was her destiny.
She opened her eyes. One line….. Gazing out of the floor to ceiling windows. Her office on the thirty third level, views across the park, the skyscrapers, the city. Today, this was her world. She had created an empire. Offices in seven countries, thirteen cities. Four hundred people. Appearances on TV, quoted regularly in the press. Success, money, recognition. Fate had been good.
She opened her eyes. Two lines…..
Though she had an inkling, the sight of the double lines was shockingly unexpected. Stunned, Vanessa took two steps back and sunk into her over-sized leather office chair. She began to slowly rub her temples, “After all these years…. why now??”
No sooner than she completed the thought her office door opened. It was her assistant, Craig.
“Vanessa… is everything alright? You look like you’ve seen a ghost.”
Vanessa looked down at the framed picture of her husband in front of their beach house.
She took a deep breath and slowly raised her gaze to meet his, “Craig…. we’re pregnant.“
Singer-songwriter Josh Doyle (formerly of the UK band The Dumdums) has just shared the official music video for his lead-off solo single, “Solarstorms.” The track comes from Josh’s self-titled debut full length (available now on iTunes), which was produced by Grammy Award winning John Shanks as the result of winning a singer-songwriter competition through Guitar Center.
Doyle recently made his US television debut performing the single on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and plans to tour in support of the album in 2013. Watch away and let me know you thoughts!
I had given you my word, a promise from my soul. Kindled on my heart for the world to see. Your love inspired me to be more that I could have ever imagined. It revived what had been lost along the way and provided shelter from the storms.
I was willing to give you my world, every ounce of my being for just one ounce of your love. I left everything behind for a second of your time. Turned my back on what was expected to follow my heart.
I did what was least expected and threw caution to the wind.
100 Word Song is a writing challenge from Lance based on a weekly music prompt. 100 words – no more, no less. This week’s challenge was inspired by Bob Dylan, “Shelter From The Storm.”. And I made it a two-fer by incorporating Velvet Verbosity ‘s 100 word challenge. This week she challenged us with ‘Kindle’.
