#WRITEPHOTO – Meeting by neelwritesblog

A change of pace with this sinister entry by neelwritesblog:

The instructions were very clear.
The email read: Coming Tuesday, September 21, 2022 take the NH24 from the Noida Link Road. Drive a steady 40 km for the next two hours. You will see barren land to your left. Take the dirt road. The only one there.
Drive for another 15 minutes.
You will reach a fork end.
Two paths follow
Take the left one.
Drive through hilly rocks.
At some point you will have to abandon your car.

X. X. X.

It was an eXistential crisis!

The Xenophobic creatures called.

A Xerus in a bowler hat…

They were eXtremely appalled.

The Xerini leader shouted – Order

An eXpert in these matters.

He declared this one creature eXempt.

EXposed as the Mad Hatter!


Xerus by DA Whittam (nope not pam)

What fun! Originally written for Deb’s X prompt found at Nope, not pam:


X has never been a common initial letter in English, and even with today’s enormous vocabulary you can still only expect around 0.02 percent of the words in a dictionary to be listed under it. But why not try boosting your vocabulary with these 40 words that start with X.

X

On its own, the letter X is listed in the Oxford English Dictionary as a verb meaning “to cross out a single letter of type.” X. X. in Victorian slang meant “double-excellent,” while X. X. X. described anything that was “treble excellent.”

Have you ever wondered what live would be like as a bump in a log? Living life envious of those bumps in the road? Well, ponder no more! Instead, read this fun entry by jimadamsauthordotcom:

He sat there like a bump on a log while everyone else joined in the fun, but he was literally a bump on a log, so it was very difficult for him to join the others in their activities.  Some people referred to him as a lump on a log, but he definitely preferred being called a bump.  He did have a cousin that was a bump in the road, and he was a very fun guy to be around.

#WRITEPHOTO – Meeting by pensitivity101

An intriguing entry by pensitivity101, you can practically feel the energy stirring from the page.

Everything lay in readiness.
All those who mattered had been invited, and the seats arranged accordingly.
Time stood still, the light began to fade and eerily, the forest was silent, as if holding its breath for things to unfold.
The trees closed ranks providing a canopy for secrecy and privacy.

#Writephoto Round-Up – Swan

The solo swan continued her rounds of the pond where her memories had been happiest.

Yet every day her heart ached just a little more.

The light shining through under the golden bridge seemed enticing.

With calm and dignity she swam towards it.

Returning to her (soul) mate.


Written in memory of our beloved Queen Elizabeth II.

Did you know as a general rule, swans mate for life? If a mate is lost then the surviving mate will go through a grieving process just like humans do.

I’ve had so many wonderful responses and enjoyed each and every one. I have tried to reblog a few since the post went out so hopefully, you will have seen some of them trickling through, but here is the list below (if I have missed anyone, please let me know). It makes for fantastic reading.

I hope you’ll join me for another #writephoto challenge, the latest challenge is published here:

#WRITEPHOTO – Swan by Geoff Le Pard

A hilarious (and brilliant) entry by Geoff Le Pard:

Godfrey Dankgutter hadn’t ever regretted his decision to become a Buddhist, even when his third plane of existence had turned out to be a dung beetle. He was one of the fortunate ones who’d avoided a sense of smell. Now, three planes on and here he was, a swan, gracefully swanning about on the River colostomy with barely a care. He tried whistling – last time he’d been a whistling cockroach and had been pleased to master his second octave before an untimely death under a size eleven – but swans appeared to want to hoot. Perhaps, next time he’d acquire lips. Now…

‘Hello, who are you?’

Godfrey looked about. It took him a moment to spot the source of the question. A rather asymmetric man wearing a knitted vest, woollen socks and a pair of ludicrously wide shorts. He also appeared to be pushing a bicycle, laden with four panniers. Godfrey ignored him and allowed the current to take him under the bridge. He had to be talking to someone…

Godfrey started and paddled backwards as the man’s face, necessarily upside down, not that it seemed to make a lot of difference to the positioning of his features, appeared from the apex of the bridge. ‘Yes, you. Mr. swan. I’m talking to you.’

#WRITEPHOTO – Swan by Inkdrops

A sweet entry about our lonely little swan in this entry by Inkdrops:

It’s really hard

housesitting

when ma and pa

have gone on holiday

They’ve taken their grandkids

somewhere sunny and warm

and though i’ve got the nest all to myself

sometimes i wish i didn’t

Tile Tales – Future

This week’s Tile Tales goes out to all the Teachers, TA’s, Nursery Assistants and others who dedicate their lives to helping our little ones shine!

I think most of us have had a teacher we really admired. I’ve been lucky in my educational journey to have a few, and to them, I am so grateful. A teacher that you click with can truly change your educational journey. Thank you to you all.


Today’s tale was made with the Love Kit


Want to play along?

I love playing around with the magnetic poetry blocks.
I’m no poetry writer so I prefer to create a short story of sorts.
The kits can be found here (and they are free):

#WRITEPHOTO – Swan by LadyleeManila

An intriguing entry by Ladylee and interesting poetry form –

Shiny white swan swim in the lake

While I read my book and eat some apples

Away from the busy street I assure you

Stocking got wet when I awake
