Goodbye Fall

I’m running late with everything bar work at the moment but here is my Poetic Tuesday entry ( It’s Friday)

Thanks to Walt for the prompt over at dVerse and good luck to him on the next part of his journey. Our theme is goodbye.

**************************************************************************

Autumn is hanging on.

Leaf by golden yellow brown leaf.

Each drop, a gentle gravity called ceilidh.

Toward that final moment.

That last, grasping, fingernail moment.

Of that last leaf.

On that last tree.

That last fall.

Silence.

No longer

Golden.

Daily Prompt: Happy Happy Joy Joy
by michelle w. on March 28, 2013

We cry for lots of reasons: sadness, pain, fear . . . and happiness. When was the last time you shed tears of joy?

In a very recent BLOG I described a sporting moment of high drama and intensity. Watching my team lift that particular trophy, whilst standing with my arms around my son’s shoulders, made me shed a tear or two of joy.

That’s it. The easiest Daily Prompt to date.

In other news I have been wondering this last few weeks what I would blog about without my Daily Prompt and whether or not it is akin to my own set of ‘Scribblers Stabilizers’ (or Training Wheels)

As I wobble my way along the virgin tarmacadam, that is my road of compositional possibility, I am perhaps beginning to get a feel for what it is like to write Daily, or to write at all. To allow the possibility that words may just come……. Flow………. Find the page.

Do they have to make sense?

Do they have to have meaning?

Can they just be a list of questions?

Who am I talking to here?

How long will I use the DP to push my writing envelope before I take off the stabilizers and head along the road on two fingers? ( I don’t type very quickly or with many digits )

I have, according to my WordPress stats, now accumulated a number of followers.

44 follow paul scribbles and 87 follow me over at paul dear photography.

Wow. That’s 131 people in total. I think that’s a lot. I know there are folks with thousands but 131 have showed at least a passing interest in what I ramble on about or take pictures of.

Who are you?

Well whatever the answer is, Thank You. Yes You.

What I want to do now is to try to find a way to engage more with you all. Talk and stuff. No I won’t be asking for your mobile number 😉 Internet talk. Trading comments. Having discussions.

I get likes and I get pingbacks but few actual comments. How do I address that? Start a conversation? Ask for opinions? Visit YOU more often perhaps ( I am so very very bad at that…apologies)

On the photo blog I started a challenge and we’ll see where that goes. I am hopeful it will take root and grow into something. But what about here? I’m curious.

So, for this Blog here’s a question.

What made you click ‘follow’ over here at paul scribbles?

Let’s talk.
