'A sense of humour lends you poise, it gives you balance and it helps you to bend without breaking'

(HH Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda)

Menoxtra - a bit on the side

Once a week I partake in a microfiction prompt over at Grandma's place, (not exceeding 140 characters OR 140 words).  This had been getting done on the TAKE TOO blog, but that is now being merged into 'doses of WY'. So now there will be two post of a Sunday (or occasionally a Monday) in response to the prompt... which is always a picture and a bonus word.  This week that is HESITATION.


He who hesitates lands in the pot.
(35 chrx)

Bruno didn’t hesitate to say yes to Brunhildie. He loved that she came with no strings attached.
(96 chrx)

The witch
Carried the switch
To brush aside
The hesitation
Of the object
Of her devotion
Though the
Chef had a twitch
He wished to ride
On visitation
Her pet subject…
Secrets of motion!

  1. We were on similar wavelengths this week. Love them all!

  2. Good for you! I like the idea of merging. I merged a couple of years ago. It lets people see what you are about!

  3. Not sure where you are going with this but I like the characters.

  4. Not to hesitate and things will fall into place! Wonderful lines YAM!


  5. I think we were all thinking along similar lines with the first two. My favorite is the third, however. Probably because I lack your skills in poems and imagery.
