Word Prompt

Devour

Challenge

Hunger

They planned to meet at lunchtime which would give them a chance to dispel any butterflies they might feel.  They walked hand-in-hand, both trying to ignore the electricity that ran up their arms while they walked and searched.  They discovered a cool joint with a hippy vibe that served excellent beer and simple, yet fun food.

The decor was perfect to get them talking about this and that while they each surreptitiously stole glances. The chilled beer barely managed to cool their inner thoughts, though.

As soon as they exited, he pulled her to him and kissed her passionately. “I could devour you right here and now,” he growled.

Lollygag

Challenge

I frankly love this word so it’s a pleasure to insert it into this little exchange. Thank you, Sammi, for hosting this party weekly.

A Question of Balance

What are you doing?

Faffing.

Not dilly-dallying?

Could be.

You are definitely doing nothing.

So? What of it?

It is lazy and you’re wasting away the day.

I disagree. It is called creating balance. One cannot always be doing.

It is wrong.

Nay, it is necessary. Come sit down and lollygag with me. You’ll see. You’ll be more productive later.

Word Prompt

Complex

Challenge

Yes, Dale, do try your very first Puente with a limited word count. Why try when there are no restrictions? That would be too easy.  I tried, I chucked, I put into the trash… and then this morning, the words came so I went garbage picking and took it out, spit and polished and well, this is it. Thanks, Sammi, for making me work so hard!

 

He and She

 

Complex in his moods and beliefs

he accepts who he is (hard-won)

and will not compromise

 

~it is a notable endeavour~

 

to take a risk, get closer

by exposing herself, she opened the door for him

they found a love unexpected

Word Prompt

Hubris

I admit to struggling with this one as I like to go outside of da box… I gave up 😉  Thank you Sammi for making me work!

Quiet Confidence is Preferred

We should meet. You won’t be disappointed.

That so? You are quite the cocky fellow.

Not cocky, confident. I know that once you’ve kissed me, you will want more.

Wow. Your hubris is remarkable.

My what?

Hubris.

What’s that mean?

Arrogance.  Suffice it to say that I have learnt through experience that those who vaunt their prowess, most often disappoint.

Well I know I won’t disappoint.

I can tell you that I shall not discover your supposed talents.

Why not?

I prefer a quiet confidence. One that does not feel the need to speak.

Barricade

Challenge

So, I feel it’s quite alright to do a weekend prompt on a Monday when there will be none the following week, right? Right.  Thanks for hosting, Sammi!

 

A Blessing and a Curse

It is both a blessing and a curse to have a welcoming disposition. There is something heartwarming about knowing that my home is inviting, that it is a place where one feels comfortably at ease and wanted.

That said, I do not live alone. And guess what? My kids’ friends also feel that my home is welcoming, inviting and a place to feel comfortably at ease and wanted.  So much so, they just waltz in, doorbell unrung!

There are days I would like to set up a barricade to keep them out!

You know those days when you just want to be in your bubble and do your own thing without having anyone breathe your air. And no matter they are downstairs and you up. They’re THERE, and you know it. Which is enough.

Morphology

Challenge

Boy, she really knows how to picke ’em, our Sammi, eh? My attempts to use this word in a reasonable manner…

Strength

My body’s morphology has left me musing

Where once I lamented my youthful form

So strong and able

Jumping high and running fast

I now appreciate my present form

Reshaped by life’s journey

Stronger and more capable

At what point can we declare we have reached it?

It is an arbitrary number, depending on the subject

How awful when applied

To love

To passion

To People
