Dear Lady Skylark - Becca🐦,

Hey @Becca! I love to do your Skylark challenges. It's just awesome to see so many people doing & I get to read such wonderful entries from so many lovely writers including you as well!
And btw...You are the sweetest, who takes time to read & go through all write ups & even drops your lovely comments. I eagerly wait for your comments. You not only reason the writes up but also learn something out of them, like the words you don't know, or the things to didn't understand you ask for them too, &stuffs.
Reading that letter on your life's reality, made me understand, you're not understand a sweetest but also powerful & self-motivated person.

Hats off to your husband...

Words used:
* STACKED
* MIRROR
* TOUCHING
* MAGICAL

Time was STACKED against her. Reaching out her slender fingers, she stood where she was, and gripped the spine tightly with both fists - merely TOUCHING it was not a risk she could take. Ava hoped to goodness that this was the MAGICAL book, she'd heard so much about; because everything now depended upon it.

Ava saw the shape in the MIRROR almost as quickly as she felt the eyes on her back. Holding her breath she hoped her death would be quick and waited for the pain.

The professor's library, was a small room in the west tower. There was no hiding place here. If she was still visible, it would not only be the end o...

Goodnight world

Another haiku or three were on the cusp of being written before I slept, but after being kept awake by Janine, E and the spark of creativity; my cat Percy has decided it's waaaaaay past my bedtime - and he does have a point. It's approaching 2.30am.

More from me tomorrow, if I rise before teatime!!

Haiku Challenge #2

I watched the rain drops
Shimmer through open windows
As I heard rumbles

Haiku Challenge #2

I watched the moonlight
Shimmer through old elm branches
As I watched bats fly

Questions answered

WHAT  IS THE SKYLARK CHALLENGE?
A weekly writing prompt that includes 4 carefully chosen words and a photo - except on occasions when it's a special challenge, known as a #SKYLARK SPECTACULAR! - or like recently, when we celebrated our Ist birthday 😱 and I created a very special set of prompts - with prizes!!

Feather-like fronds hung from branch and bark
I'm GAZING upon a hoar frost, crystalline
Sunlight rising from the dark
A winter wonderland every time

I'm gazing upon a hoar frost, crystalline
Wrapped in a radiating glow
A winter wonderland every time
Treading through fresh falls of snow

Wrapped in a radiating glow
A POOL of reflected APRICITY
Treading through fresh falls of snow
Beauty in simplicity

A pool of reflected apricity
ENTICING us to stay
Beauty in simplicity
HOLDING hands, we smile and walk away

Enticing us to stay
We watch a soaring Skyla...

The sun hit the green at a perfect one-day hundred degrees, tracing the bark of an old pine tree.

It lit up the garden, my smiles and beads of morning dew; making them twinkle.

The sun hit the green at a perfect one-day hundred degrees, lifting me out of the doldrums; just enough to see hope over the hedgerow.

#SKYLARKCHALLENGE 73

Words used:
* DARK
* HELP
* SECRETLY
* TROUBLES

We all have our TROUBLES.

Some will be held out at arm's length, cradled in cupped palms; for kind minds to stroke and coo over.

But then, there are those we hold SECRETLY - pressed against our clammy skin or in an inside pockets. They have all manner of names.  Some are called Shame, others Guilt or Fear. Some don't know who they are. These ones can fester and multiply.  These ones may remain hidden in the DARK, for decades; or may never to feel the warmth of the sun on their face or get the HELP they need.

We all have our TROUBLES.

I chose a skirt of almost black, to say goodbye. But with a rebellious scattering of soft pastel confetti.  You'd have approved. Though you carried the Goth-look in your teens, yellow was always your favourite colour.

Do you remember those Wellington boots?  The photo taken by Mum, in front of the boarded-up lounge window? They were bright enough to confuse bumblebees! You were perhaps five, chubby-cheeked with a handful of sandy curls. A beautiful child with shy, sparkling eyes and a savage pinch, when your big sister deserved it.

It's ten years tomorrow,  since we lost you. Had I known it was coming,  I'd have called you sooner;  spoken to you for longer;  asked you just one more questi...

The swell pulled her. It took all the strength she had, not to drown.

Great waves of hope and purpose, sucked her in, again and again.

Repeated disappointment eroded her smile, and with each drag, she felt a little more hollow - until finally; there was a gaping hole, full of salty sorrow.

Luckily, she knew she wasn't the only pebble on the beach.

After I am gone
My body laid to rest
The earth will claim my atoms
Having given of my best

My body laid to rest
With seed and stone I'll lie
Having given of my best
When it is my time to die

With seed and stone I'll lie
And after winter, comes spring
When it is my time to die
But know I'll go on living

And after winter, comes spring
The earth with claim my atoms
But know I'll go on living
After I am gone

A Pantoum Poem.
