100 Word Challenge: Divine

Standard
100 Word Challenge: Divine

This week’s 100 word challenge was to write 100 Words – no more, no less using “divine” for inspiration. I could either use the word – or any form of the word – as one of my 100, or it could be implied.

The Divine

I am male
I am female
I am one
I am many
I am true
I am false

People kill for me
People die for me

Does it make me happy?
They say it does
Does it make me sad?
They say it does

I am omnipotent
Absolute control
I am helpless
Pained by your pain

I am what you made me
What you believed in
What you needed me to be
What you said I was

No matter how much you know
How much you feel in your heart
The absolute indisputable truth

Do you really know for sure?

100 Word Challenge: Karaoke

Standard
100 Word Challenge: Karaoke

This week’s 100 word challenge was to write 100 Words – no more, no less using “karaoke” for inspiration. I could either use the word – or any form of the word – as one of my 100, or it could be implied.

Haunted by Beauty

Empty orchestra. “Hauntingly beautiful” Ted Mosby said. My memories of karaoke bars are not beautiful. Haunting, maybe.

One that stands out is an afternoon spent with a friend. He wanted to go in the new (tacky) karaoke bar to see what it was like.

He walked up to the scowling lad behind the bar and said “excuse me, do you have a wine list”.

The barman rolled his eyes and stared at my (very well groomed) friend before responding “err, no”.

“This is not our kind of place” he told me, running out of the door.

100 Word Challenge: Weather

Standard
100 Word Challenge: Weather

So between moving house and everything the thirty day writing challenge for June kinda fell by the wayside.  I don’t like the thought of doing it in a 31 day month, because it jars on me, so I’ve postponed it until September.  In the meantime though, here’s a 100 word challenge I saw here.  The challenge was to write 100 Words – no more, no less using “weather” for inspiration, . I could either use the word – or any form of the word – as one of my 100, or it could be implied.

The weather will change but whether you live this end or that, the Canal is wet

I am a Loiner who lives in Liverpool. I still work in Leeds. So I travel between the two cities quite a bit. They are just less than 75 miles apart. They are also, apparently, in different seasons. Last weekend was spent in the sun. Last week I stepped off the train in Leeds into icy gales and several people wrapped up in hats, scarves and gloves, in June. This weekend was spent in the sun. There seems to be only one conclusion. The home country is cross with me for leaving and the Yorkshire chill is seeking me out.
