Tile Tales – Tribute

Thank You Ma’am – Love Kit

This week’s Tile Tales is a change of pace.


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):

Thank you for your service, Your Majesty!

Royalist or not, our Queen was an icon!

And what an incredible, transformative, era she did reign.

She will be missed.

Queen Elizabeth II

Those who come after you will say the Britons of this generation were as strong as any.

That your attributes of self-discipline, of quiet good-humoured resolve and of fellow-feeling still characterise this country.

The pride in who we are is not a part of our past, it defines our present and our future.

Queen Elizabeth II – Smiling

God Save The Queen! Rest In Peace, Ma’am.

The Passage of Kings – #Writephoto

The walls wavered and wobbled before him.

His chest grew tight as his knees grew weak.

His legs felt heavy with each step he took like wading through the bogs of his childhood. His childhood.

Could he really say that when he was just 14 now?

Yet, it seemed a world away.

He had had a family, a brother, a father, it was all gone now. Now he was a pawn. A chess piece in the most powerful game. The ruling of England.

He was never supposed to be part of this game.

His father should have ruled for many more years.

His brother should never have died.

He should not be king.

Yet, he was all that was left.

Men surrounded him. The most powerful men in the country. They urged him towards the steps.

The very thought made his stomach churn and gurgle.

Once he stepped through there was no going back. Once he stepped through, the coronation would begin.

He’d officially become the king of England.
