These Wednesday’s roll around quickly don’t they? This week Linda G Hill’s One Liner Wednesday has a new badge thanks to Laura from Riddle from the Middle who won the challenge for a new graphic. Congratulations Laura!
My contribution this week is humor, as usual. Hope you enjoy the laugh!
Walking slowly through the woods, Jessica was lost in her thoughts. It had been an emotionally driven weekend and she desperately wanted to shake off the remnants of the past two days.
She stopped suddenly when far away an interrupted cry jerked her out of her reverie. She wondered what it could be. Perhaps someone was hurt or an animal maybe.
Hearing it again she moved quickly towards the sound. She had come off the trail and was venturing into the deep forest. The sound was closer now, and as she pulled back some wayward bushes, she saw it.
There in front of her was a dog tied to a tree. It was clearly distressed
‘Oh, you poor doggie, who did this to you?’ Jessica said tenderly
‘Get away from the bitch. Now!’ he said as he pointed the 12-gauge shotgun at her.
Bjorn is hosting at D'Verse Poets this Monday and has challenged us to write some flash fiction - no more than 144 words. It also has to include this line from "When far away an interrupted cry" from Acquainted with the Night by Robert Frost
Jim Adams has prompted us this week with Desire, Lust, Romance and Passion for Song Lyric Sunday. I think ‘love’ figures in there somewhere so I have chosen an old Peter Frampton song. He wrote and recorded it in 1975 but I much prefer this reggae-style version by Big Mountain from 1994. I hope you enjoy it too!
Lyrics Baby I Love Your Way Big Mountain
Shadows grow so long before my eyes, And they're moving across the page Suddenly the day turns into night, Far away, from the city
Don't Hesitate, 'Cause your love won't wait Ooh baby I love your way, I Wanna tell you I love your way, I Wanna be with you night and day
Moon appears to shine, and light the sky, With the help, of some fireflys I Wonder how they have the power to shine, shine, shine, I Can see them, under the pine
But Don't hesitate, 'cause your love won't wait Ooh baby I love your way, I Wanna tell you I love your way, I Wanna be with you night and day
Well don't, don't hesitate, 'Cause your love, won't wait, I Can see the sunset in your eyes, Brown and grey, and blue besides Clouds are stalking islands in the sun, I wish I could buy one, out of season,
But don't hesitate, 'Cause your love won't wait, Ooh baby I love your way, I wanna tell you I love you way, I Wanna be with you night and day Ooh baby I love your way
