Twittering Tales #26 – 18 April 2017

This is the weekly writing prompt challenge I’ve been taking part in lately, to write a story in 140 characters or less. I love seeing the huge variety in everyone’s different responses!

About the challenge:  Each Tuesday I will provide a prompt, and your mission, if you choose to play along, is to tell a story based on that prompt in 140 characters or less.

If you accept the challenge, be sure to let me know in the comments with a link to your tale. A final note: if you need help tracking the number of characters in your story, there is a nifty online tool that will count for you at charactercountonline.com.

I will do a roundup each Tuesday, along with providing us a new prompt.

Have Fun!

From Michael at Morpethroad:

My Songs
I was disappointed with no entry.
They had played my songs.
Their interpretations fascinated me.
I was flattered by their vocal renditions.

And so it begins…

The Girls In My Backyard (alternate version)

My blogger friend Peter of Peter’s Ponderings recommended this blog to me – I clicked on the link and found this lovely poem, which made me cry so I’m sharing it!

No Talent For Certainty

Sprinkler

The girls in my back yard
Are running to and fro:
They’re dashing through a sprinkler,
And laughing as they go

The grass is green and rich,
The fence is high and far;
There’s brewing tea out in the sun
Inside a big glass jar

My wife is at my side,
We’re watching the “stampede” –
We see the world, and it is good.
There’s nothing left to need

The girls in my back yard:
My God, I love them so,
Though they grew up and moved away
So many years ago

Yes, long ago they laughed,
Along with my late wife —
From this back door, I hear, and feel
What used to be

My life

2017 Will Be A Fabulous Year!

Some positive thoughts to start the year from fellow blogger Cathy Lynn Brooks. There’s so much depressing stuff out there, and it’s easier than ever to find bad news online, so let’s share some good stuff as well!

Cathy Lynn Brooks

I know that many people were shocked and disappointed that a bigoted, misogynynous, ignorant, pompous millionaire was elected as President of a well respected country. There has been much doom and gloom about the coming year because people are fearful of what is to come. It’s valid to feel that way but what I’ve learned through the laws of attraction is what you concentrate on, or fear, is what you will get. We need to start thinking more positively so that 2017 will be the best year yet.

Personally, 2017 is going to be fantastic. I’m turning 60 in June. You can read more about how I’ve already started to celebratehere.I’ve vowed to start a year of “yes” sometime this year. You can read a short story I wrote about thathere.The final and probably the best reason that 2017 will be wonderful is that after working…
