I‘m going to toss this out there
on a bold dare
Launch a message at will
while the neighbors fire up the grill
I’m a stone’s throw away
from saying what I need to say
The line shall be cast far out
and you’ll know what this is about
The pitch is soon to be known
without use of a cell phone
Catapluted in your direction
with a blogger’s affection
Propelled as a response
to a prompt’s nonchalance
Heaved into the air
with unadulterated care
The fling is soon to unfurl
after I give it a spin and a twirl
Give it a pitch across my lips
Lob it from swaying hips
Cast it at the diverse crowd
without being brazenly proud
Here we go with the launch of words
Loud enough so it is heard
Happy Saturday! Happy Fourth of July! Happy Weekend!
Be well, be safe, wear the mask.
Stream of Consciousness Saturday is the brainchild of author Linda G. Hill. Every Friday, Linda provides her followers with an inspiring blogger’s 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 or rain drops. Click HERE if this type of writing floats your boat or helps with your decision-making. Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “cheek.” Use it as a noun or verb. Have fun!

Great toss, Mary. I hope you have a wonderful long weekend. Don’t forget your mascots of independence, give them an extra scritch.
Thanks Dan. It’s probably going to feel like most other weekends, but I’ll take plenty of time to relax with the mascots. 😼🙂😼
Happy Fourth, Mary! Don’t let the firecrackers scare the kitties!
Not to worry. Fireworks, thunder, loud noises don’t seem to bother either one. Have a wonderful weekend, Lois!
That’s a wonderful toss Mary! Happy Fourth and happy weekend to you too from across the water 🤗🧡
