Online journal capturing the moment and the memory of moments. A meadow meditation.
|LET'S TALK PROCESS!
As my writer-friends know I'm scatter-brained and easily distracted... much like a cat. So, it's normal for me to channel my inner Feline and vomit all over the page. Then... someone (usually me) has to clean up the mess. Sometimes there're diamonds hidden among the hairballs.
For "The Writer's Cramp" Bianca, bless her pea-pickin' heart, wants us to write ONE doublet by noon tomorrow. Well, never one to follow directions, I gagged up a bunch of... seven of them. I've cleaned them up some but left the originals as popnotes to amuse the curious (or bored).
Ah... since dialects divide us (they needn't, but...), some observations: choc'late is two syllables [a] choc-o-late like e-ve-ry would be three; 'all y'all' and 'ya' are American, mostly Southern, slang [b]; Goddess/God? a matter of linguistics and/or belief [b]; two-fer-one poems [b,c] twinsies, brothers from another mother; 'delicious' [d] is a double entendre as Delicious is a well-known apple where I grew up; 'gimme' [e] is slang for 'give me'; [f] is admittedly an aliterative hisssss and 'last night' can mean yesterday or 'YOUR last night' as sometimes I like the humor of ambiguity; 'vittles' = chow, grub, food, y'know? [g].
So these are the 7. If you have time, please quickly read and tell me which you liked the most (or disliked the least):
No calories, they said
At lunch, salted chocolate cookies beckon.
At home, "I reckon I could lose some weight."
Goddess visits Texas
I created all y'all out of love — Zap!
Unfortunately, ya didn't listen.
Our Lord created us-all lovingly;
unfortunately, we can't get along.
Apple of my eye
Were you always delicious? Me the worm
that dearly wanted to make you my home?
San Diego would be hell
Just gimme the smell of lightning, the clap
of thunder, rain washing away ennui.
Slithering past the sentry at sunset,
Sally seeks the heat of your warm embrace.
On the run to fetch some bread-n-vittles,
slow down to pet the whining puppy's head.
