Once Upon a Time: True lies

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Once Upon a Time.”

Once upon a time,

last week,

Once upon a time,

In real life,

Once upon a time,

In reel life,

Once upon a time,

on television,

Once upon a time,

I caught an episode of a serial on television last week.

True…not a fairy tale.

Fireside Chat: Yawning Chasm

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Fireside Chat.”

I’m willing to listen to a story,

A tall tale, if you please.

And you can ramble on about your rambles,

And spin a fine yarn.

All I need is that you have a warm fireplace,

A cosy chair in a cosy nook,

And a full coffee mug at my side at all times.
