A Mother’s Love

By Tessa Dean 2015

Mom I feel your love surrounding me now.

Is it my thoughts of you that bring you forth to comfort me?

I miss you, you know?

I miss our talks and your great wisdom.

You were my best friend,

You brushed away my tears with a gentle touch.

You helped me through the rough spots.

No one can ever take your place.

PROMPT #195

Yes, it is an image prompt as you can see – but with an added twist.

Write down the first three words that come to mind on seeing this image. The words should be there on your blog.

Use these three words in your piece.

Alternatively, you could also use synonyms of these three words.

There is no restriction on length or format of the piece. There is no last date either, unless you wish to be featured in the Weekly Wrap. 

Any post that is found to be offensive, vulgar or something that hurts common sensibilities will not be included. This needs to be a safe space.

Create a post on your blog, and copy-paste the link in Comments. In case you are using a pingback, do check back to see if it has worked.

My three words were: City, Space and Lost

I wrote a Haiku:

lost cities floating

far out in space and unmanned

travelers beware

Blue Screen of Death!

By Tessa Dean August 2021

Randy looked adorable and innocent when his mother brought him into her office to show him to her coworkers. Everyone gathered around him to pinch his cheeks and tell him how cute he was. However, five minutes later, the enraged operator of the computer little Randy was playing with turned to Randy’s mom and swore at her for being so stupid as to let Randy out of her sight because now her computer screen showed the blue screen of death as Randy happily punched the keys. Randy’s mom was swearing at him and pulling him away from the computer, but the computer’s operator was crying about the project she had been working on and was probably lost now even if the IT department could get her computer back up and running. She had a deadline of another hour and it seemed highly unlikely that the computer would be up and running again and that the project could be saved. Randy was dragged out of the office all the while screaming, “Play!”

Grandpa’s Motorbike

By Tessa Dean August 2021

*********************

Hadley zoomed up on his new Honda Motorcycle that he had gotten for his birthday. “What is that you got there? It sure is rusty,” he asked his cousins, who were pushing an old rusted motorcycle out of their grandfather’s garage. Jacob and Joshua tossed out several oaths before replying.

“We are trying to engage Grandfather’s old Harley Davidson Motorcycle. Grandfather seems to think it will run with some loving care, but I think it is ready for the junk heap myself.”

“It’s rusted. That thing isn’t going to start,” Hadley informed them. Laughing at their idiocy, he roared off.
