9:44 a.m. — Atlanta

watching and listening to something my uncle sent round and decided you needed to see it too. I wonder how long it took them to rehearse.

Hello, everyone. Ready for some linking and prompting and writing? Let’s go.

Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie  The prompt that caught my eye this week is Tale Weaver’s Prompt: The Funeral of Al Na’ash. I love the title. To find out what the prompt is about visit them.

sunday whirl

At The Sunday Whirl,  Brenda gives us a set of words that all have the same vowel sound. Go Wordle. If you join The Sunday Whirl‘s Facebook page, you can get the week’s list a couple of days early.

pink girl ink  Pink. Girl. Ink. gives us an image. It is a lovely photograph of snowfall, so head over to see it and to see if it inspires.

At The Music In It: Adele Kenny’s Poetry Blog, Adele announces her winter hiatus, but she gives us presents, too. To see and enjoy all the things she has under the tree for us, visit.

I am struck anew at how clever some of the limericks are at Mad Kane’s Humor Blog. I defy you to not enjoy writing a good limerick. One advantage to writing a limerick, or two, is they are short. You can post them in comments on the blog, or on Mad Kane’s Facebook page. Go over and check it out, to read and laugh, and maybe write.magpie

Magpie Tales has a photograph by Elene Usdin. I laughed as soon as it flashed on my screen and laughed again. I find it enchanting. Some might find it alarming. I notice that the number of entrants is small which usually means people aren’t sure quite what to do. Remember that you do not have to write about the whole, or write about the image directly. Head over.Poetry Jam

At Poetry Jam, Peggy gives us quiet. Visit.FPR-200

At the Found Poetry Review Beth has a cool prompt for us to try that involves a mirror universe. Go read what she has to say. Very cool.

Poets & Writers gives us three prompts every week. One for non-fiction, one for fiction, and one for poetry. My contention is that all the prompts work for poetry. They also, all work for prose. This week’s topics are a day in the life, learning to cook, and whimsical creature.IGWRTButtonrsz

Hannah, at imaginary garden with real toads asks us to transform with Lake Hillier. Wait ’til you see the photographs. Can anyone say Pepto Bismol? Go play with the toads.wewritepoems

At Red Wolf Poems Barbara has a fun exercise for us to try. It’s one of my favourite prompts (ones similar). To remember your past, head on over to read the whole prompt.

Poets United Midweek Motif asks us to focus on human rights. Susan has chosen some intriguing quotes, gives us a couple of ideas (one of which I find fascinating), and has a video. Head over to see what it’s all about.

dverse-nightime-finalOver at dVerse we’re in Poetics with Gabriella who wants us to think about city songs. Visit to read what she says and to read the poems she includes as examples. They’re friendly folks at the Bar, so stick around for some conversation.

I shall see you Tuesday for a prompt; and then, not again until January 6. Originally I had said the 30th of December, but apparently, I will be in the car that day.

Happy writing, everyone.

      What? I checked the wretched thing. Okay, I’ll see if someone else has the problem and yank it if so. Thanks for the heads up. Much appreciated. As is your thumbs up :-).

    I have three haibuns on my Longer Strands site.
    Umbra … etc is on the dark side
    …peaceable slices… political maybe
    and this one is more in the spirit of the season –

    Safe travels and I am going to enjoy an almost quiet weekend. Cheers, Jules
