Sorry if I OFFENDED anyone

mindlovemiserysmenagerie Reminds us It is First Line Friday! Welcome and let’s get writing.

You have a week to write it, enjoy! Include the first line of course! Tag it Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie, First Line Fridays, and short fiction.

Mirror, mirror on the wall, I hope it’s not YOU! I SEE!

Ta Da! ♫ Your first line is **People see what makes sense to them, reality notwithstanding.**

Below see my attempt at offending someone!

**People see what makes sense to them, reality notwithstanding.**
It all boils down to lifestyle and Pride.
Today especially, with the new normal that is plugged. 
The "New Normal" defined as:

I’m offended!
You’re a racist!
Boy or Girl or to be determined!
Cops are bad; crooks are good!
Riots/looters are peaceful!
Processions/A March are terror!
Conservative silenced
Liberal voice loud

Any other New Normals to report — leave in the comments.
My challenge to you!

Sometimes One just has to be SILLY

Can’t find my thinking cap! Don’t say it, I know what you’re thinking!

Tale Weaver – #299 – Over The Top – October 29th I took the challenge anyway!

OVER THE TOP

Looking way Over the top
Stooping under the bottom
Licking a sweet lollipop
Enjoying the cool Autumn

Having indeed a great day
After sleeping sound all night
Cut last blooms for a bouquet
Thinking of what now to write

Now reaching for my laptop
Designing away something —
Anything … Over the top

Poem Mix with Politics

Over on my sidebar there is a quote that inspired me today. Together with a prompt word SWITCH not to mention Mindlovemiserysmenagerie below.

“Right is right even if no one is doing it; wrong is wrong even if everyone is doing it.”

Saint Augustine

First time for me with the explanation below through the inspiration of Mindlovemiserysmenagerie Poetry known as Vers Beacoup.

The Vers Beaucoup, a poem created by Curt Mongold, is French for “many rhymes.” Each stanza consists of four lines with a rhyming word scheme of:
a-a-a-
a-b-b-
b-c-c-
c-d-d

My creative verse below rhyming scheme as above with three stanza of three groups

If you get the ITCH to SWITCH, that’s RICH
Don’t DITCH! WOW, do it NOW by golly
Take that VOW! Plan AHEAD, use your HEAD
Before your DEAD! WRITE what’s RIGHT!

Don’t FRIGHT; we UNITE for the FIGHT
Be a KNIGHT! READ now let’s LEAD —
WEED out evil! Pull the PLUG rid that THUG
So very SMUG! GAIN hope to DRAIN!

It’s DEEP don’t fall ASLEEP, WEEP for
The SHEEP! An ARRAY of truth we PRAY
TODAY. To set us FREE we can all AGREE
With GLEE! Soon to sing the LATE Deep STATE!

Opposites do Attract

OPPOSITES ATTRACT This challenge is all about “opposing forces” and the use of antithesis in our writing. Our words this week are:

– ascend and descend

– hope and despair

My post in the form of a Haibun with Haiku

God indeed works in mysterious ways. Take life as an example. There are those people who are their best when they are at their lowest; in other words, they seem to sink or descend to the lowest point before rising to ascend to great heights. That is the way of life, and even God Himself fell three times when He carried His Cross before He rose. He never despaired, but hoped for our salvation.  

All called to follow

Up down, to and fro we go

Heaven is our goal

Ah! Another Challenge, Mindlovesmisery's, poetry

Why are we here? Welsh Poetry

What a challenge!  I tried!  See below

Rhupunt is a Welsh poetry form. Here are the guidelines for the rhupunt:

  • The form can be broken down into lines or stanzas
  • Each line or stanza contains 3 to 5 sections
  • Each section has 4 syllables
  • All but the final section rhyme with each other
  • The final section of each line or stanza rhymes with the final section of the other lines or stanzas

*******************

 

why are we here
to drink a beer
to add some cheer
a bad omen

seek a good friend
but learn to bend
stretch to the end
write a poem

keep it simple
nothing sinful
see the steeple
you’re almost home

First Line Friday — Destination Unknown

Post Short Fiction inspired by Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie, First Line Friday!  

 

The station reminded her of some great creature, its constant machine whir breathing around her as she worked herself through the crowded people all around her. This was the first time she visited the train station. Where was everyone going, she wondered? So many people in one place were going this way and that way. The noise from the trains was indeed an enormous creature, its constant machine; the engine was huffing and puffing.  

This building is the local train station, and FINALLY I am one of those anxious people strolling around looking for my place to board one of those noisy, enormous machines trusting it to bring me to my destination.  

 

My adventure about to begin, I can only hope I will find the happiness and peace of soul when I reach the end of my journey.

This Quote to that Quote!

INSPIRATION FROM THE Sunday Writing Prompt — 

Accepting their challenge from this quote from Atticus;  –> “We just want the world to love the little monster that we are.”  Atticus a pseudonym for an anonymous poet, writer, and artist.

The prompt reminds me of another quote from the Bible:  The above quote from Attius to this quote below is my post today, Sunday, December 22, 2019.

Adulterers, know you not that the friendship of this world is the enemy of God?  Whosoever, therefore, will be a friend of this world, becometh an enemy of God.

James 4:4
