“Another thing I remember…”

ANOTHER THING I REMEMBER

Another thing I remember
Beginning when I was young
Children should be seen
Don’t make a sound
Everything must be calm
Forget about play
Go to your room
Heard that phrase often
I was silent as a mouse
Just ask my cat
Kipper was my friend
Loved me most of all
Made me feel noticed
No one gave me time
One day she went away
Playing in Heaven now
Quietly I cried missing her
Running away came to mind
Staying with my family NEVER
Tortured was what I felt
Unless I could hide
Vultures surrounded me
Waiting for their pickings
X-rays for broken bones
Yet there was no concern
Zoning out was the only answer

‘A’ to ‘Z’ Writing Prompt Challenge #2 – “Another thing I remember…”

‘A’ to ‘Z’ Writing Prompt Challenge #2: “Another Thing I Remember…”

Beginning something new. 

The Writing Prompt Challenge I modified from a fellow blog mates Post, is titled: The ‘A’ to ‘Z’ Writing Prompt Challenge. It began with the #1 Challenge Phrase being: ‘A dark and stormy night…’ A New Phrase will begin with the letter ‘A’ and appear every Monday with a new #. One is to write a [Story, Poem, Essay, etc…Writers Choice] using the prompt as the beginning of the first sentence or line and each one following is to begin with the next letter of the alphabet, ‘B’ and ‘C’ until you reach the letter ‘Z’ or at least attempt to reach ‘Z’. If you are stumped or have finished then stop. The instructions will be placed at the top of each Writing Prompt Challenge. They are also on the Page “WRITING CHALLENGE” at the top of ‘the secret keeper’ blog in white lettering on the far right in the second row.

The following week after a Challenge I will Repost the CHOICE OF THE WEEK on my blog ‘the secret keeper’ after I have read through all the submissions. In order for me to locate your submissions, please leave a PING in the Comment Section of your ‘A’ to ‘Z’ Post or a LINK in the Comment Section with the Instructions in this POST on ‘the secret keeper’. Do whichever is easiest for you. Just be sure I can find your submissions. I hope you will find this a fun Challenge and have a Good Time Playing with the alphabet, awakening the creative in all of us.

The Challenge for the week of Monday June 29th 2015 is: ‘A’ to ‘Z’ Writing Prompt Challenge #2 – “Another thing I remember…” It will appear on ‘the secret keeper’ Monday June 29th 2015 @2:03AM EDT East Coast USA & if you are a follower of ‘the secret keeper’ it will be posted in your email that same day.

Here is my rather Gothic take on the A-Z Challenge #1:

A dark and stormy night hung over the moor like an Elsinor arras. Boughs bent near breaking, the trees whipped and dipped in a wind-tossed tarantella. Crazy for man or beast to be out in a night like this!

Driving down a hedge-lined road, ‘crazy’ Zandra searched of refuge from the torrential downpour. Each cottage she passed was locked tight and empty, as if the inhabitants had long since fled to higher ground. Far across a field, lights flickered through unshuttered windows, beckoning.stormy night

“Granville Grange” read the carved plaque to the right of the oaken door. Her hand grasped the massive brass knocker and gave it a solid thunk. Ignoring the rain running under the collar of her jacket, she shifted back and forth, waiting – hoping – for rescue.

Just as she was about to resign herself…

RILKE Painting blond

(28th week)

“Works of art
are of an infinite solitude,
and no means of approach
is so useless as criticism.
Only love can touch
and hold them
and be fair to them.
— Always trust yourself
and your own feeling,
as opposed to argumentations,
discussions,
or introductions
of that sort;
if it turns out
that you are wrong,
then the natural growth
of your inner life
will eventually guide you
to other insights.
Allow your judgments
their own silent,
undisturbed development,
which, like all progress,
must come from deep within
and cannot be forced
or hastened”

“Waiting…”

WAITING…

Waiting for the disturbance to silence
Waiting for the music to caress my soul
Waiting for the motions of quiet
Waiting for the dreams to be told
Sometimes they are nightmares
Sometimes dark

Waiting for the story, that needs telling
Waiting for the circle to be unsealed
Waiting for the world to keep revolving
Waiting for the truth to be revealed
Sometimes it’s bad
Sometimes it’s bold

Stop waiting
Make something happen
Let it be good
Flowing with love
The light is Love
It is the answer
It shines a brightness
In the soul
