One Single Impression: Muse

Muse

As I mused my muse
she done came and went
don't know where she went
I just know she's gone

Saturday Centus: The Chair, the Cat, and Xentor

.
It was a cold and rainy day. The chair dominated the small room. That chair and the cat in the chair.

Xentor knew only one way to get warm and have any rest. Make friends with the cat and share the place to sit. A saucer of milk would do the trick for now.

The cat drank slowly if at all. All the while making a small crying sound.

Xentor pried it's mouth open and found a fish hook stuck in the roof. Carefully he removed the hook like he did on fishing trips.

The cat said, "Meow, meow."

Xentor had made a friend for life.

It is Saturday Centus day. Jenny in her blog,
...off my tangent..., has challenged us with writing a 106 word story using these six words, in order, "the chair dominated the small room".
That is 100 of our words plus the six she has required. She did allow less, but I made it to an even 106.

Jenny also had a picture of a single dentist chair in a small room that we could use or we were allowed to use our own. I opted to use this one of Fluffy and his dining table chair. Fluffy belongs to my BIL, Danny.
You can find more writers signed up at Jenny's blog, ...off my tangent.... You can also go there to find instructions for writing your own post.

Elemental

Come August thirteenth
Perseids meteor shower
peaks before morning
ordinary chondrites fall
elemental iron burns

Acrostics Only: Acrostic Haiku - FLY

Feeling bit lowly
Life has gone south and sour
Now bit by a fly

Acrostics Only: Prompt B: Acrostic Haiku (AH) - FLY
(A Haiku is a Japanese lyric verse form having 3 un-rhymed lines of 5, 7, 5 syllables, traditionally invoking an aspect of nature or the seasons.)

(Similarly constructed poems involving human nature, are generally excluded from haiku, and reserved specifically for Senryū.)

Note: Grasshoppers never eat other insects. They are called herbivores because they eat only plants (link). But a hungry fly will take a bite of most anything living or having once lived. I.e. now dead or alive. For more about grasshoppers read here.

One Single Impression: Vital





Vital; a review

His vital signs were slowing
he kept drifting off to sleep
Old Father Time's a going
keeps bringing up from the deep

Time long ago a young lad
playing outside with his toys
never thought of being bad
though soon he'd meet bigger boys

Indelible were the teens
memories weren't far away
his treasure was lost between
her mother's sheets in their play

Learning to drive dodged a cat
he took his mum for a ride
told her proudly hold your hat
"too old to spank" hurt his pride

Came along his love for life
courting her was fun and joy
then wedding bells and a fife
nine months later it's a boy

Happily ever after
they all lived until that day
tears prevail swallowed laughter
loved till death he went away

One Single Impression: Sour Grapes

.


Sour Grapes

Country Western* for the mass's mainstay
from soup to nuts no way to skin a cat
O name a song with nary one cliche
but don't you dare compose a poem like that
