Beast spews steam with vigor

We tame the beast with purpose

Must get those clothes ironed

Desiccated mummy meat

Doesn’t matter if you heat

It mostly, mainly tastes like feet

Never ever will it meet …

My expectations


note ~ this poem comes about because of a microwave dinner (stir fried chicken & rice). I’ve tried it a few times, as it looks good, but the little chunks of chicken are really bad & dried out even though I follow the directions. So I call it desiccated mummy meat. Oh, and I don’t buy it any more!

Jump Right In – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Rope


Jump Right I – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Rope 


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “rope.” Use it as a noun or a verb. Have fun!


Today’s prompt word is ‘rope’. Thanks, Linda!

If you’d like to join in this fun weekly challenge, and also see other entries, just click the above link.


I always liked to jump rope when I was a kid. I wasn’t all that good at jumping, but when I finally figured out how to get both feet off the ground at the same time in a jump, I was pretty proud of myself. haha 🙂

I remember we had lots of fun jump rope rhymes we’d say while jumping, and then counting how many we could do before missing.

Cinderella dressed in yellow, went upstairs to see her fella, how many kisses did she get … 1, 2, 3, etc.

Blue bells, cockle shells, evie ivey overhead – then the rope would be thrown over your head

There was probably more, but that’s all I can remember right now.

Here’s a poem I wrote back in 2017 about jumping rope … as usual most all my writing and poems are done stream of consciousness as is this one.



Jump rope jingles

Recited in rhyme

One, two, three,

Will you be mine?

Double Dutch fun,

Then over-head

Hot pepper is fast,

Your face turns red

Chanted in cadence

To keep up the pace

Trip over your feet,

And lose your place.

Blitz Trip – SOCS – Trip


Blitz Trip – SOCS – Trip 


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “trip.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

Happy Saturday! Thanks, Linda! 🙂


The prompt is ‘trip’, and I’ve taken many trips. We’ve traveled lots of places overseas, and in the states. I’ve also taken many a trip when I fall down. Those kind of trips are not fun at all.

Here’s a different kind of trip – a Blitz poem I wrote back in 2015, that trips stream of consciousness style from words and phrases and associations. It’s all done freestyle as you type/write whatever you think of as fast as you can. The title of the poem is always a mystery since it is not revealed until the end. This one is ‘Trip Into Trouble’. It’s lots of fun.
