From the growling stars

Jane Dougherty Writes

The moon rocksScreen Shot 2018-07-14 at 16.51.22

on stormy seas,

heaving with wind and rain.

Shadows on the sun sweat blood

beneath these cool blue skies,

whisper me music to die for.

Dogs are angelsScreen Shot 2018-07-14 at 17.09.49

from the growling stars,

old as the oceans

with their ghost fish.

Wild hearts

in the dark of night time,

ask only for a bit of love

and a soft voice

Folk tales, local legends and fairy stories? – Guest posts wanted!

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

It is five o’clock here in England and my daily featured spot is empty again. I feel unwanted, abandoned, bereft… Here I am, all ready to welcome guests, and not a guest in sight! I could just sigh and reblog a post I have enjoyed, or I can use the space to offer it  to you.

And, if you’re new to the idea of writing with the help of prompts, here’s what I like to do with them…

I often find myself writing short stories or poems during those ten minutes, but you…
