The Moon- Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

223181955_10208906950028517_5122972416121968609_n

The path you walk

May seem confusing, 

Full of insecurities

And uncertainties.

You may feel

Lost on your journey,

As if wandering

In the dark of night,

Not sure of where

You should be going.

But worry not,

For the Moon will

Light your path,

Providing the clarity

And understanding

Your intuition needs

To guide your way

Through the darkness.

Use its gentle light

To walk your path,

And take your steps

Bravely towards

Your hopes and dreams.

Pawn – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

Realizing that he had only been a pawn in her little game and had only been used to spy on her rivals, Zak decided he’d had enough. As he left her mansion, he pocketed a few small but valuable items to later sell at a pawn shop after he left town.

Oblige – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

“Oblige you?” she spat. “Oblige you? Ha! I don’t have to oblige you for anything, you bastard. What have you ever done for me? Nothing! All you’ve ever done is use me. The only person I am obliged to do anything for is myself, and I’m starting right now.”

With that, she stormed out of the house as he watched her in stunned silence.

High Hopes – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

socs-badge-2019-2020

Today’s prompt is “hope” and I’d hoped to come up with something creative for such a good word, but I just ended up stuck with a couple of earworms instead. The songs wouldn’t leave my head, so I’m going to share these two inspirational songs (each with the same title) with you instead. If you end up with an earworm from them, I’m sorry. But it’s my hope you’ll find them inspiring.

First up is “High Hopes” from Panic! At The Disco, from the album “Pray For The Wicked”:

And second is the classic “High Hopes” by Frank Sinatra, from the movie “A Hole in the Head”:

Nurse – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

The young nurse was on her way to the hospital to start her shift when she spotted a stray kitten meowing by some bushes. She could tell it looked very young and weak, and obviously needed help. Not seeing any signs of siblings or the mother cat, she took the kitten to the nearest shelter, where they were able to place the kitten with a cat who’d just had kittens. The mother cat instantly accepted the kitten and let it nurse from her. Relieved that the kitten would be nursed back to health, the young nurse headed to work.

The Light – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

socs-badge-2019-2020

 

There are times

When things seem dark,

And it feels like I’m

Trapped in a Nightmare

With no way to wake up.

But then you are there,

And the light of your smile,

The touch of your hand,

And the love in your eyes

Brighten the way,

Leading me back

Out of the darkness

Into the light of Hope.

Murder – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

As he hiked through the woods, he suddenly heard the raucous cawing of a bunch of crows. Curious, he followed it to a small clearing where he spotted the murder grouped around a body. He drew closer, and as the crows parted, he noticed the gunshot wound. He sighed, disappointed to have his day off ruined, and pulled out his cell phone and called the precinct to report the murder. Then he started investigating the scene.

Last – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

It was a last-ditch effort, she knew, but with no other plan available, it was the only option they had left. If it worked, even if the resulting peace didn’t last, it would be better than letting the war continue. So she gave the go-ahead for it and prayed it would work.

Kid – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

He hadn’t been home in a long time and he wasn’t sure what to expect, but as soon as he walked in and saw the Christmas decorations and smelled cookies baking in the kitchen, he felt like a kid again. He called out, and when his mother answered happily from the kitchen, he grinned and ran to go help her with the cookies like he used to.

Jade – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

Jade cleared the final booby trap and grinned as she approached the jade idol at the far end of the chamber. The dangerous journey and all the traps may have jaded the others, but not her. She came from a family of adventurers, so it was in her blood. Plus, she loved the excitement and thrill of the chase.
