SoCS – Against the Rules

“In other words…”

Rolling around my head

But I am brain dead

“What to write?”

The white matter cried

Sorry, they’re fried

“I have no clue.”

Perhaps I can cheat?

From the prompt of last week

“In other words…”

I have none of those

Emptiness exposed

“I hate the block!”

It cramps my style

Thoughts in a messy pile

“Where’s Cheryl’s bar?”

I might need a beer

and weekend cheer

“In other words…”



“Much like pullling teeth…”

There’s a pain in my head

Still brain dead

“I just rearranged words…”

To Linda’s dismay

It’s been that kind of day

“In other words…”

Against the rules

Don’t care. FU

Note to my readers: Yes, I wrote naughty letters. Shame on me! However, since I broke Linda’s rules, I decided to end this post with a true SoCS salute. It just came to me and my fingers couldn’t stop. :-p

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.

    In other words, you had a tough week. I think it’s understandable. Blame it on delayed-move-experience. DME. That’s what you got.

    You’re always welcome at the bar. Cheryl will set you up with something to get the words flowing.

    I love the photo – perfect.

      Yeah, it’s a little bit of DME, but more of not catching up with the regular work (because it keeps on coming) before moving on to the next project. I’m hoping by the end of this coming week, I will be less likely to swear. πŸ˜‰

    M.O.O.N. spells crazy…I empathize. Thanks for the nod. Wish I was serving us all up some nice brew this weekend, Mary!

    • bikerchick57 says:

      I would love to spend a few hours at the bar this afternoon, all warm and toasty with a brew and some wings and a great bartender. No moon. I wish too, Cheryl!

      • dweezer19 says:

        I will think of you when I have my beer, Mary! That’s something I CAN do. 😊

    It must be something in the air, I’m mental jello too … but I think you didn’t extremely well in spite of the block. Love the photo!

    • bikerchick57 says:

      I’m gonna remember that witch’s advice! I think Linda must shake her head at the rule breakers…unless she secretly admires us for our “courage” and inability to stay inside the box! πŸ˜€

    Can only think that anyone parking there would need to be towed away by a tank, as the sand-dunes look as if they’d encroach within minutes !
    Good cheating, M-J ! [grin]

    • bikerchick57 says:

      Thanks M-R. Something cheating is cathartic. You have an excellent point about the tank. Maybe that’s why someone was bold enough to park there. πŸ˜‰

    At work, we always write ‘f/u’ in our notes. The first time I sent that to someone, she called me and said, ‘please don’t tell me you wrote that in a company email.’ I asked what she thought I wrote (no, kidding, I knew but I wanted her to tell me!). She laughed when I told her it was our shorthand for ‘follow-up.’ We still get a chuckle out of that all these years later.

    • bikerchick57 says:

      Okay, so I wonder the response if I wrote f/u in a note to my boss when I need to follow on something with him. Or maybe I’ll leave that alone.

      LOL, Lois! That is too funny.

  6. Aunt Beulah says:

    I smile in anticipation when I see you’ve written a poem, and this one didn’t disappoint. It was great fun.

  7. Liz says:

    That sounds interesting. Writing without editing. I would write a whole load of stuff that would probably make no sense but maybe if I continued doing that, I would soon start making some really good sense. I’m not editing this comment today. Thanks!

    • bikerchick57 says:

      It’s not easy, Liz, and yet it’s fun. It makes me think about every line I write. Give it a try some Saturday morning…nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?
