I'm in, but I'll be at work tomorrow so can't link until tomorrow evening. But the post is up on my blog! Looking forward to others.

Can it be something I wrote in the past? Or is this more like a prompt? Have something I'd like to enter, but I wanna follow the rules. :)

Bluebell Books said...

Yes, it can be something you wrote previously indeed,

Ginny said...

Wow, coincidentally I live in MA, and we had a tornado come through not far from where we live (3-1/2 miles) a week ago tonight, so very rare for our area. I wrote a piece this week and will post tomorrow.

Short but not too sweet, I'd say.

Looking forward to reading each submission. This is the sky that brought the tornado which hit our town a couple of weeks ago. We were fortunate as it was only an F2 other places in Oklahoma were devastated.

Jingle said...

a cool image, Missy.

I watched news on TV the other day at IL hotel, saw two news guys talking intensively at the same time, arguing current /previous presidential candidate's love affair issues, wrote my entry instantly then.

Have fun, cheers. visited entry #1-#14.

Thanks for your invitation.
I often take a joke and make it into verse. Unfortunately, playing with words, sometimes lost in translation.

Greetings from Denmark

not truly about dark weather,
but a delight take on life under the dark blue sea.
Cheers.

Very glad to be back amongst the books of blue. What I've shared is not a literal interpretation of stormy skies, but youths struggle to navigate them. I hope that's OK.
