Hello word artists and admirers! Listen to any fun tunes lately? I’m still humming songs from the half-time show at last week’s Superbowl. LOL, I’m not really all that much of a sportsball fan (though I understand it a lot better than I did in years past), but it’s become something of a tradition to go to my friend’s house, munch on not necessarily healthy things, and joke around during the game.
So onto the Sunday business! First up…
Announcements and Reminders
- This upcoming Wednesday’s Weekly Scribblings will be hosted by Magaly. She’d like us to “Turn Cliché into Poetry or Prose. Take one cliché, two clichés, three clichés, or as many clichés as you like and turn them into poetry or prose.”
- If you haven’t yet, check out the most recent Wild Friday by Rosemary. She’s got the Living Dead and the words of W.B. Yeats on her mind, especially on how the later can help us put some of the darkness we are living through into perspective. Feel free to jump into the good conversation going on in the comments.
And of course, it being Sunday, feel free to share your words with us on this open link event. Your words, old or new, poetry or prose, fiction or slice of life, are all welcome here. But remember, if you are sharing prose, keep it to 369 words or fewer. One link per person please. The pantry is all yours until Tuesday night. Happy writing!
I will be back later to read and comment.ReplyDelete
I love your heading about the stars making love to the Universe. That's what started the train of thought which gave me my poem, about a child falling in love with a landscape.ReplyDelete
All the credit goes to Shakira for that. It's a line from her song. I love how you took the line and ran with it.Delete
Oh yes, I just had a listen to Shakira and discovered that. Not my usual kind of music, but a perfect song for the times we are living through!Delete
My musical tastes are fairly eclectic. There are some subgenres that aren't my thing (screamo comes to mind), but I'll give lots of different styles of music a listen.Delete
Rommy, I'm right there with Rosemary--your choice of title rocks!Delete
Starting the day with the pantry has made Sunday's better.ReplyDelete
Decide to share me first 100 word story.
Congrats on your first 100 word story!Delete
Luv that music video, thanks for sharing. Happy Sunday to allReplyDelete
Happy Sunday to you too!Delete
Off to my Sunday family routine (leaving the coast/NH and heading back to the mountains) will check in later. Looking forward to reading creative works.ReplyDelete
Because I like the company and it's Sunday!ReplyDelete
Those sound like good reasons to me!Delete
Late start today - hello to all. I will be back later to read and comment. Have been reading a bit of Yeats lately = coincidence!ReplyDelete
Yay for YeatsDelete
Thanks, Rommy, for hosting. Lots of busy folk here are squeezing their time to write, and answer comments. But I'm retired and shouldn't be squeezed. But today it happened, I'm posting my Sunday Muse work. It is on the love ride though not universe related. Could I be forgiven?ReplyDelete
An aside, three hours ago we received bad news, my SIL has been airlifted to the LSU Hospital for help with a stroke. She is in the ER right now.
So if you are the praying type would you say a prayer for her. Thank you. Jim H
Prayers coming for good news, Jim.Delete
Of course, Jim. *hugs*Delete
Jim, I hope for a speedy recovery for her.Delete
Jim, I hope your SIL is getting better. Keeping you and her in my thoughts.Delete
Stars making love to the universe reminded me of an idyllic time when my children were small. As for the Super Bowl half-time show … I think JLo and Shakira set the Me Too movement back a couple of eons...just when women were trying to rise above being just sex objects!ReplyDelete
Bev, I'm extremely interested in learning exactly what part about two strong women choosing to dance and sing about speaking out, about unity, and about making love to the universe "set[s] the Me Too movement back a couple of eons", or reduces any woman's worth, or anyone's right to be whatever they want in any way they choose.Delete
I'd also be curious to hear the answer to thatDelete
Happy Sunday, everyone! I'm looking forward to seeing what you all have written.ReplyDelete
I forgot to hit "send". Back around now!ReplyDelete
LOL, glad you made it backDelete
yay sportsball! my team is better than your team!ReplyDelete
ROTFL this is me at every sporting event, even though a lot of my family and friends are into it. I usually keep myself busy at the snack table and chit-chatting. Have you ever heard Weird Al Yancovic's Sports Song? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGbqGkS1c2wDelete
Good (Monday) morning, everyone. My schedule decided to go nuts at the last minutes on Sunday, then I was exhausted and totally passed out, and now I'm about to head back to the hospital (again) to spend more quality time with lab coat wearers. Not for long, thank goodness. And when I get back--in a few hours--I will have your words to delight in. That's not the worst start to a long week to come, is it? I hope this new week is good on us all. Read you soon!ReplyDelete
Hoping for a much better week for you, with lots of opportunities to rest and enjoy things.Delete
Love your dedication, to turn up here asap despite extreme circumstances!Delete
Coming here is my reward after all the mess!Delete
