rocks-1061540_1920

FORESHADOW

Scuffing the sand,

Walking hand in hand,

See twilight’s brand

Of secrets in the sky.

Ocean’s waves brush

Slick rocks with a shush,

Moonlight shimmering lush,

So perfect we both do cry.

Then, you spoke those words,

As soft as a bird’s

Wings flutter, and I heard…

“Tonight my soul wants to die.”

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Feb. 27/16

untitled

Good afternoon, y’all. Today for Stream of Consciousness Saturday, we are to talk about food. Ok, I like food 🙂 Mostly sweet things. I get bored with everything else, but you have to eat something, anyway. It doesn’t matter to me what it is, unless it is something I find gross. Like those TV food shows (you probably know the ones) that go all over the world, eating nasty stuff. Well, to me it is. I don’t even like watching them.

And, what about food fights? You see that sometimes on TV. Does anyone really throw food at each other? Sure doesn’t sound fun to me. Another thing I’d say no to are those food eating contests, where people compete for prizes, I think, by stuffing themselves with more and more food. That can’t be good for you.

Some phrases we hear all the time are… Food for thought (I can sort of understand this one)… Food fit for a King (so, is no food fit for a Queen?)… and then, there are grocery stores with Food in the name, such as… Food King (still no Queen), Food Emporium (really?)… Food basket (ok, makes sense)…

Now that I’ve typed Food so many times, the word sounds weird…say it with me… Food, food, food, fooooooddd… hahaha …it makes your lips pucker up! hahaha 😉

So, I have my afternoon coffee. Is that a food, or just a beverage? There are liquid foods, solid foods, crunchy, slimy, sweet, sour, yummy and yucky… want me to go on listing stuff? I imagine you don’t…so, I think I’m done for now.

What’s for lunch/ dinner/supper/breakfast/snacks?
