A Letter A Week – S

Hey everyone,

We’re onto S this week and I’ve going to advise that my mother didn’t recognise the animal this week. I’m not too sure if that’s just unfamiliarity or the sign of a really bad drawing.

You guys are lucky though as it will be identified in the prompts. I bet you’re thinking that’s a relief, anyway onto the responses to last week’s R.

Kate from Aroused had a special piece for R

a wily wabbit
waited by his whole
wondering if he’d
included enough ‘w’ words
to make poor Deb weep with woe!

Fandango from This, That and The Other

Carol Anne from Therapy Bits

Sadje from Keep It Alive

Christine from Stine Writing

Leyde Ryan from Hourglass Poetry

Restless Rita from Gypsie’s Wonderful World of Words

Onto the rules: This prompt is very simple, there is one rule only. Your response needs to contain the letter of the week, other than that you’re free to do as you wish. The prompts I offer are not compulsary, they’re just suggestions but it does close at 12pm on Saturday, so I have time to do the roundup.

If you’d like to join in use the tag #1letterperweek, and ping back and we’ll see how it goes.

So, onto S and this week’s prompts.

Place – school

Emotion – sense of wonder

Adjective – snug

Verb – scrubbed

My animal – skunk

He approached with a sense of wonder.  He’d heard so many fantastic things about the place, he could barely believe they were true.

Here, supposedly, knowledge was a snug blanket you could cuddle into without fear.

Pausing at the gate he took a deep breathe, he’d scrubbed himself as clean as could be to mark this occasion, and without further he stepped into the school yard.

“Ahh … a skunk.”

  1. lol hilarious! Must say I’ve never seen one, don’t think we have any here?

    that said the sassy squirrel
    streaked up the sycamore tree
    to secure more sweet nuts for summer
    surely he could find a sweetheart on sinder
    if he had sufficient nuts?

      1. We see them here a lot in the northeastern US. People are terrified of them because of they’re scared of being sprayed but as long as you don’t crazily chase it and corner it you’ll be fine.
