#Fiction Friday and Song Lyric Sunday

I have some exciting news for everyone!  Marquessa Mathews of Simply Marquessa reached out to me and wants to join forces for a fun blogging adventure in September.  The best part is, it is all about music!  My life over here will pretty much stay the same with my Song Lyric Sunday posts, but she will be starting a #Fiction Friday Challenge on Friday.  Click on the link and check it out for yourself, but here is a small blurb from her post:

“I will be posting a song lyric as a writing prompt fr YOU. If you don’t like the lyric I post, you can simply use another you hear or just write according to the essence of the song. Flash fiction, regular fiction, poem…it will be up to you!

If you take the challenge, I’ll ask you to pingback to the post or drop a your link post in the comment box.”  

We’ve agreed to reblog each other’s weekly posts so we can all participate in sharing our love of music through lyrics and flash fiction/poetry.

Please go check out Marquessa’s blog and find her new challenge tomorrow.

I’m looking forward to all your creative writings, and as always, tune in on Saturday for the Song Lyric Sunday theme.

Sunlight

Blinding light tears through
Dark fears evaporate
Mists on the breeze
Floating idly by
Watching
Waiting
For the time when light
Fails
Darkness settles
Fears rage
Waiting for bright
Blessed warmth
Safely enveloped in beloved arms
Fleeting, floating
Sunlight


Here are the rules for the “Five Photos Five Stories” challenge: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge.”

As I mentioned in the first post, my son, Jaxon, took the photos I am using.

My final nomination goes to Linda G Hill.

I apologize for being a day late with this one, but better a day late than never, right? Thanks again to Prajakta for nominating me for the challenge.

Shared Abundance

Wake up to the glowing sun
Live and breathe the fresh new air
Harmonious rhythms sing through veins
Delighted breezes sway
Dancing in time to melodic beats
Floating through the joyful day
Blissful sighs melt into tinkling laughter
Igniting shared abundance
I bow my head in delicious wonder
My divinity to yours

Desert Heat

Dusty footprints pave a path
A destination unknown
The sun beats down on weary shoulders
Sweat dripping to the ground
Tumbleweeds roll slowly by
Driven by an arid breeze
Daydreams of moisture
Glimmer in the air
An oasis of hope wavers amid
Charred edges burning
Succumbing to the desert heat
All signs of life slowly fade away

Lonely Exchanges

A distorted sun beats down on heavy hearts
Colors fade to gray
Familiar faces come and go
Strangers in the end
Fake smiles warp fleeting moments
Shrill laughter cuts through the wind
Shattered figures sharing shards of glass
Lonely exchanges under a colorless sky
