Words For Wednesday

Words for Wednesday is a writing prompt designed to fire up our creative juices and get us writing.  The words can be spun together to create a piece or just used as inspiration.  Write fact or fiction, prose or poetry, or simply a stream of thoughts generated by the words.
There are no rules (that's the best part).  Use some, all or none of the words on any day of the week you like.   It really doesn't matter as long as you enjoy the process.  Just always let us know if you are posting your piece on your blog so we can all drop in and visit.

Here are this weeks prompts:

beacon, evening, jealous, slander, dormant, peripheral
and/or
mystic, plentiful, splendid, destruction,
gratitude, and bacon
or you could use this phrase
MISTY MOUNTAIN MELODY

Have fun.

  2. Sorry, that was nauseating schmaltz. I will try again later.

  3. All of us knew the words, and all of us sang them. The spread across the world was so rapid it was almost mystic. We were on the Eve of Destruction, and knew the answer was Blowin' in the Wind. We demanded that our elders Give Peace a Chance while we continued to Turn on, tune in and drop out. Beads, beans and bongs were plentiful. The police were pigs, and bacon was banned. For a guitar strumming barefooted layabout it was a splendid life.

    1. This all went on when i was quite young and did not understand. It's always revealing to listen to the stories of those who lived this.

    2. It was a colourful, glorious time to live in.

  4. Thank you so much for hosting and providing these words, Delores! Today's words sent me in a dark direction today, and i'm not sure why. http://messymimismeanderings.blogspot.com/2017/07/who-would-do-that.html

    1. Wow...you really DID go dark didn't you? Always surprising where the words lead people.

  5. It was the early 1970s. What a time that was. I barely remember it. What a good memory Paul McCartney has. He can remember things that happened over 50yqears ago. I can't remember things that happened yesterday.

  7. I'm running behind a bit this week. Puff! Puff! But I've finally made it!

    "The EVENING star, like a brilliant BEACON, dazzled, dominating the western sky. Its silvery light out-shone the PERIPHERAL planets, which momentarily appeared DORMANT, perhaps JEALOUS of Venus’ power.

    Darkness had finally descended; the DESTRUCTION of day completed.

    The SPLENDID, MYSTIC atmosphere created a MISTY MOUNTAIN MELODY that seemingly enveloped the landscape.

    Megan smiled in GRATITUDE for the PLENTIFUL benefits endlessly awarded from living in such a beautiful, tranquil area. Not to be at peace with the world would be SLANDER, an abusive attack against her good fortune of having discovered this wondrous place.

    The aroma of BACON emanating out of the kitchen jolted her out of her reverie. With a deep sigh and one final look at the sky above and the valley below, Meg wandered inside."

    1. Sounds like paradise Lee. I'm having a little trouble getting started this week. This latest sighting of (possibly) Angel has me all upside down again, unable to concentrate.

      Delete
    2. It sounds lovely - and here's hoping it WAS Angel and he is nearly home.

      Delete
    3. It's understandable, River. I know my mind would be in a total mess, if I were in your position. You concentrate on your boy...that's what is most important at present. Take care...we're all with you, and urging Angel to come home.

      Delete
    4. Fingers crossed it WAS Angel and he is on his way home.

      Delete
    5. Ditto to that, Delores. Let's hope that all our determined will and wishes brings Angel home to River. It's so upsetting.

      Delete
  8. 'The destruction of the day'...how poetic. Nicely done.

  9. My short story, which is NOT a further chapter to Lost and Found, is scheduled for Friday.
