Daily Prompt: The Outsiders

I thought I’d pass this
But giving in twists my fate
Back in from outside.

Daily Prompt: Style Icon

I am boho vintage
And professional chic
Sometimes girlish charm
Else rocker black suede

Cherries and sweets
With spicy stir-fry
One moment it’s latte
Next, vodka on ice

Be still and contemplate
Or be a hurricane
Sometimes I’m an angel
But then I fall again.

Daily Prompt: Roy G. Biv

The back of my hand brushed against my still-closed eyelids and I could feel them flicker and open. Pale, flimsy curtains framed the indigo-velvet sky; the last reluctant stars  lingered petulantly.

I took in a deep breath of the crisp blue air, then stretched out my arms only to be met by empty sheets, still warm from her presence. My senses awoke. Where’d she gone?

I sat up, feeling the breeze pass by my shoulder-blades, then stood up. I picked up my shirt from the chest-of-drawers and put it on, then stole out in the peaceful stillness of the unawakened morning. Feet bare and unsandaled, the rough wooden flooring felt comforting  as I wandered out quietly towards the seaside.

I thought I saw her in the distance, standing still in her billowy white sundress, her head tilted towards the lightening skies, now a plush violet. And I stood very still, and waited.

Soon, the skies faded to deep orange, as the red sun rose from its rest. Where it touched, everything seemed to be revived and dipped into full colours, and soon the lush green trees came into view against the golden-yellow backdrop.

And there she was, there and right beside me.

Beauty in all of nature’s hues.

Daily Prompt: Simply the Best

I suspect that I think best
In the most unlikely places;

Summoned back to my senses
While drifting into slumber
Only to frantically scribble
Those precious words ‘fore I forget

Or perched precariously
In the bathroom
And ideas and thoughts seem to
Flood in as trash floods out

Of course, on the commuters’ tube
And I’d whip out my mobile device
Quickly jot down my muses
Before they vanish out of sight.

PS: Today’s prompt was written at the table proper. 😉

Daily Prompt: Happy Happy Joy Joy

Perfect blue skies
Warm sun on my face
A perfect cup of latte
Fish and chips with mayonnaise
A smile from a stranger
Along a busy street
Getting writing out with
People enjoying it.

Daily Prompt: Truth or Dare

Honesty is like
The sun – illuminating
Yet glaring at times.

Daily Prompt: Progress

If I reminisced one year ahead
I will hopefully see a wonderful myriad
Of posts, pictures, ramblings, thoughts
Composed all this time from my head

And then perhaps, pleasantly surprise
My readers with a publication or two
But for which I may need to be
On some bouts of hiatuses, you know

So to sidetrack, if you see
I’m not posting for a while or two or three
Don’t worry, because I’d be on track
With more things I created when I’m back! 😉
