Friday Writings #99: Why???


Why am I suddenly experiencing allergy symptoms?

Why isn’t the tradesman I need returning my phone calls?

Why is my cat refusing her favourite food?

Why are these pretty flowers considered weeds?

Why did the Voice referendum in Australia get defeated?

Why are we still having wars in the 21st Century?

Why are Governments hesitating to deal with climate change?
Why on earth are you wearing THAT?

Why am I asking so many questions?

Greetings, dear Wordsmiths!

I am pointing to the fact that there are many mysteries and enigmas in life, many questions and perhaps not so many answers.

For your optional prompt this week, I ask you to title your piece ‘Why – ?’ and fill in the blank, then write to your title question. If you don't want to do that – for whatever reason – you’re welcome to share something else.

Guidelines: Link one post per person, 369 words maximum, poetry or prose, old or new. Enjoy what everyone else shares, and leave encouraging comments when you can. You may also talk to us and each other in the Comments section below.
Next week, Magaly will invite us to write poetry or prose inspired by el Día de Muertos (the Day of the Dead).

    2. Thanks, Margaret.

      Yes that mysterious 'Anonymous' thing is getting quite irritating, isn't it?

  2. I stoutly resist being anonymous, particularly after coming upon Rosemary's intriguing prompt. Thank you.
