SoCS: Work and Junk


That was my brain this week

Cognitive overload mush


The substance I needed this week

A brandy old-fashioned lush


Lustful over the potluck this week

So much food, so little time


Wanting to separate myself from work this week

And do nothing but rhyme


What I wanted to purge from my office this week

God, the papers and junk


Waiting for the grounds to turn into coffee this week

So I could escape the morning funk

Stream of Consciousness Saturday is the “poetry” from author Linda G. Hill. Every Friday, Linda provides her followers with a prompt. It can be a word or words and sometimes bonus points are involved (my favorite). Linda asks us to write without editing, other than correcting spelling errors.

Just go with the flow.

Like a babbling brook, ambling stream or running river. Click HERE if this type of writing floats your boat or helps with your decision-making process.

      To be honest, I had never heard of it either until I Googled “words that start with liqu.” This is one of the positives of blogging…I’ve learned so much that I might have missed otherwise.

    Very well done, Mary. I had to look up Liquescent as well. I hope next week brings a better week at work.

      I am trying to keep on top of the many things at work, but I don’t always get cooperation from others…you know, leaving me alone. I also hope I have a better week that doesn’t make me think of liquor. πŸ˜€

    I’m not writing SoCS today, but when I read the prompt yesterday, I thought of liquid brain and almost immediately after – liquor! No joke!
    Such a busy time of year, it’s important to remember the merry bits. Hope you get a break soon.

    Nice Mary. Im sorry I missed this prompt. With our colds there was plenty of liquids all ariund this week and a definite need for liquor! Not to mention the snow…..😱

    I like to imagine that with all your creative energy, you write your work reports in rhyme – just to keep the liquid brain at bay πŸ™‚

        Awesome!! 😎
        As long as they’re not government forms, everything should be ok. Right? What can go wrong? πŸ˜‰

        I was too busy today to write a poetic report, but I’m still thinking about it. Not sure what could go wrong, unless it ends up in the hands of the Governor…

    Your poems are fun to read, even when you must write without editing and, I’m assuming, revising. i chuckled my way through it, and I knew exactly what kind of week you had.

      Thanks Auntie! For whatever reason, poetry seems easier to write without editing. And that week needed a good dose of poetry! I’m glad you enjoyed it. πŸ™‚
