Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #289 #Last of the few

This week it was sad to see

died Johnny Johnson MBE

on his medal his name engraved

for those lives his bravery saved.

Another string to my bow

Not only do I try to be a weaver of words, I’ve also discovered the joy of weaving on a loom and this is my first creation, all I need is a cane, a top hat and a skill at song and dance.

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #257 #Isn’t nature wonderful

The glow worm is a quite

small bug that goes out at night

he has a luminous bum

to invite females to come

and check out the eerie green light.

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #176 Greenhouse tips and tricks

I’d like to impart to you something that I’ve learnt

if it’s a hot, sunny day your plants can get burnt

so leave the door open or perhaps a window instead

but make sure that you close it before you go to bed

for it sometimes gets very cold, especially through the night

and to find your precious plants all dead is not a pretty sight

The eyes of the world

watch those who choose to be free

often filled with tears

Ronovan writes Decima poetry prompt #94 #Commitment

Julian sat in her stone cell

from behind a window of glass

she could watch as they performed mass

while confined in this living hell,

tickets to see her, priests would sell,

in the mid fourteenth century

an anchoress she chose to be

while all through those long lonely years

she recorded her thoughts and fears

so that all, her passion might see.

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #244 #All in a day’s work

When asked about June twenty eighteen

I will always remember the scene

What I did was not being brave

Rescuing the boys who were trapped in that cave

The, “Wild Boars,” junior football team

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #238 #Maybe superstition

I don’t think I’ve heard anything sillier

than the names of the so-called witches familiar

such names as Bodkin, Turncoat and Scat

now who on earth would believe that

but as we read about it the case unravels

that were brought by the man who on his travels

whose self-made credentials were quite ephemeral

Mathew Hopkins, known as The Witchfinder General

but those days are gone and I suppose

we should pray for those found guilty, now in repose
