I'm working on being back into our blog with new hopes of faded dreams. I know that a lot of you knew that I was unable to post anything for a bit, due to being homeless for a few months. well I'm happy to say that is no longer my haul to tow, YIPPY ! And although I have very little left of my old possessions, I am happy to report that I have come out of the tunnel , through to the light and am making teenaged steps instead of the baby steps I was a week ago.
I informed my FB friends family & followers that I am working on putting out my first Book of poetry, which is something I hope to have compleated and off to the printers some time in the next few months. I would love to have it all zipped up paid off before the end of April, but I dont want my expectations to be too high, so I'm settling for this year.... But I really would like the book out for my 52nd Birthday... a present to myself, because I AM worth it....LOL.
I plan on helping out a number of my followers by offering up a sweet deal, get published in the book, the only downer to the deal is the fact that I cannot pay for permission to use your writes. I can however give you some copies of the book that your poem is in for permission to use it as an example to the prompts we have done in the past.
I know that when the book comes out I will be as nervous as a hen, but what the heck, it might be the first in a series of hits... we sure have fun here...Right?
So if by a small chance you are willing to see your prompt response in the book I'm putting together and you agree to give me permission to grant its use for a few copies ( I can do up to 3 for now) Please let me know ... I have lots of past prompts Im looking at to use and they all sound great to me, even the ones I did wrong ...LOL
OK so lets Jump into the Prompt for today.....I think for our welcome back we should do the ole stand by favorite of USE THESE WORDS....
Todays words are PAPER, NICK, AFOOT, LAUGHTER, COINS, CAGE, CLOCK, ROCKS, BUSHES, STICKS
As usual the rules are you must use the words as they are given, without changes to them, in any order you like. You must use at least 8 of the 10 words. You may write yours in any form of prose or poetry, and we request that you place yours in the comments section here as well as on your own blog.
Most of all we hope you enjoy ....
My cat Tutu is my fur kid
he brings me such joy and LAUGHTER
He's shy a bit when on his leash,
under AFOOT when a toy he is after
We venture out into the STICKS
BUSHES and ROCKS are like home
I have a CAGE in my truck
so I can take him where ever I roam
We have no CLOCKS to tell us the time
No PAPER to give us bad news
So off we go to make memories
with that I will never have blues.
PS ... help us out and give a shout out that you are with me again. I really hope to see all of my friends again... Missed you all so much...
