Elusive Realities

Sue Vincent’s #Writephoto, Change of Season



of light

illuminates one tree

and silhouettes in stark relief

the ravages of Autumn’s dessicating wind and warmth

Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge No. 53 # tanka

High above the mist

an unmistakable shape

rock of Avalon

And though our search was ended

our life’s quest had just begun

Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge No. 53 # haibun

A shape in the mist

From out of the mist

there appeared a shambling shape

baleful eyes staring

“Ah there you are Sandy,” Annabel exclaimed excitedly. She rushed over and hugged the poor dog’s shaggy neck which was dripping with moisture from the mist and his husky, panting breath. “We’ve been so worried about you, you mustn’t ever run off again even if there are lots of interesting smells to investigate.” She knew that she couldn’t really be angry with him, being so relieved that he had come back. “Right, let’s get back to the car and I’ll give you a lovely rubdown and get some of this mud off of your legs. Then we will go back to the cottage and get you in front of the fire, you silly boy.”

So great is the love

of a person for their dog

relief quells anger

There are nearly three dozen free writing contests in October.
They cover the full range of topics, styles and genres, from short stories, to essays, to poetry, to full-length works.
In addition to the prestige of winning a contest, some of the monetary prizes this month are substantial.
Be sure to check the submission requirements carefully, as some have age and geographical restrictions.
Many contests are held annually, so if you miss a contest you may be able to catch it next year.  
NOTE: On the last Thursday of every month, I post upcoming writing contests for the following month.

Stay tuned!

#SoCS September 30-17


Due to the very fair weather and the promise of rain later I decided to take the dogs out for an early walk. sadly I failed to realise that the dew on the grass would be so heavy this early in the morning at this time of year and when I let them off for a bit of a free runaround their legs and fur took on the appearance of having waded through a fast-flowing stream. These two take rather a lot of grooming so I knew that their rightful owner would not be impressed if they returned and bounced all over the furniture leaving wet trails everywhere so a brisk rubdown in the yard with a fleecy towel was the only thing to do.

a sentinel stands
where the ancient dust settled
stranger wait awhile
rest your hand upon the stone
let it’s gentle guidance flow
voices from the past
words unwritten in their time
waiting to be heard
listen to your heart while minds
left open will surely find
bold revelations
answers to the mysteries 
innermost desires
Gaia will at last reveal
secrets hidden in our souls
