Weekend Writing Prompt #95 – Devotion

I must admit I was going to go a whole ‘nother way, but then, felt I needed to thank my cousin, Marc, for coming, once again, to my rescue.  I want you do know, dear Cuz, I never take you for granted.  I appreciate your generosity over and over.  And I know a certain Mick feels secure knowing you always have my back.  Je t’aime, mon cousin! xoxo

Word Prompt

Horizon

Challenge

 

It is funny how the horizon can reshape your perspective

Ever changing, ever elusive, ever within your grasp?

Stretch out your arm and your hand touches it, just an illusion

Stretch your mind and it expands, this is reality

As the scenery transforms, so does your range of vision

Circumstances evolve, and so can your perception

When we stop learning, we stop living

“There is no Final Resting Place of the Mind.”
~Anthony Bourdain

Word Prompt

Helter-Skelter

Challenge

There are those who like their days organised, scheduled down to the last minute, no surprises.

Others like to fly by the seat of their pants, helter-skelter style, loathing regiment of any sort.

While I have my structured moments, I’m also a carpe diem woman.  What does that mean?  After my appointments on Friday, I received a text from my friend, Linda:  “OK. You, me at Industria in an hour.”

I looked at the time of the text, saw I had a half-hour to change and join her.  It was unexpectedly crowded.  Why?  Unbeknownst to us, it was “Singles Night”.

What did that mean for us?  Dinner, conversation, and a show!!

So, here’s a little “quickie” before I go out into the Siberian-level cold of Montreal.  Because I love these challenges, especially when the word count is so low!  Thank you, always, to Sammi for hosting this!

We sit across from each other

Your brow is furrowed, your lips are set

I see the confusion in your eyes

Because you know not where I’m coming from

It’s not your fault, it just is

I don’t love you

Word Prompt

Silhouette

Challenge

It took me years

To reside comfortably within my own skin

No longer a silhouette of myself

I can feel my anger

I can feel my judgments

I can feel my kindness

Everything that makes up who I am

Including the fact that I just may be

Stonger and braver than the man I am with

Which is difficult for him

But necessary for me
