I tend to do my laundry at odd hours, as tenants must share a single washer and dryer.ย  So, typically I haul my basket downstairs and across the parking lot at around midnight, or dawn. Tonight I was struck by the frogs’ loud bellowing chorus…they kept me entertained as I went back and forth, enjoying a less than favorite task ๐Ÿ™‚

Late-night dark, frogs long and loudly

Announce in lingering amphibian chorus

To all wee-hour creatures assembled

That I, peculiar inhabitant of ‘hood

Can’t manage to modify busy days…not

Sensible about sleep, nutrition needs

Which wisdom would dictate examining.

I barely discern froggy voice declare:

“Too mindful of prompts, challenges…

Alas, poet/blogger’s losing her mind”.

Late Again (Six Sentence Story)

https://girlieontheedge1.wordpress.com/2019/04/17/its-six-sentence-story-thursday-link-up-51/

Prompt:ย  POINT

I make a point each week, sincere, to my six sentences do.

Mystery to me, how time gets by these seemingly watchful eyes.

Perhaps it’s multitude of prompts come flying, ravenous beaks, ever on wing.

Slept day away, sleep’s dire need…so, scrambled to post vital A to Z and NaPoWriMo…

Then laundry called…necessary task, to wash one’s underthings.

Now it’s nearly midnight again, hands of time quite pointedly point…I may be late for link-up, shucks!

This compilation of prompts offers another peek into the wacky wonderful world of “Ryan and Rita’s” enduring marital bliss ~ โ™ฅEnnle

Looking into laundry basket

I frown, hold up Ryan’s shirt…

“Is this lipstick on your collar?”

Glancing up from his book, “You

Haven’t worn lipstick since we

Had guests, ages ago”.

I roll eyes, “my shade is lighter”.

“Looks lovely on you”, he returns

To his reading as I examine odd

Stain:ย  “I don’t think I can get this

Out if I don’t know what it is…”.

He ignores me.

“In some states you can still file a

Lawsuit for infidelity…” (is he listening?).

Grinning, he sets book aside, reaches

For suspect shirt, peers at it.ย  “Alright

Judge, I confess:ย  while you were chatting

Up the produce manager when we shopped

Yesterday, I went to the bakery…for bread

Giving into temptation, I purchased and

Ate a donut, raspberry-filled—DNA in the

Reddish stain, per defense expert, is

Likely a mix:ย  raspberry jelly and saliva

From the Defendant.”ย 

He pauses (is she laughing?).

“A lawsuit for infidelity in such

Cases would be a stretch…but if you

Prevailed, what would you win?

Having no wealth, no Stradivarius

Violin, I could only hock my guitar…

Love, you’d be left without a song.”

I’m chuckling…but can’t resist a

Dig: “How could you sneak off

To get a raspberry-filled donut

And not buy ME one?”

He pulls me onto his lap for finale:

“We, the Jury, find the defendant…

Guilty, ‘felony thoughtlessness'”.

Asks, “What’s my sentence, Judge?”

I offer sexy smile…“Time served, and

Restitution: donuts—a dozen”.
