RDP Friday: CANAL

Hello Ragtag followers, it’s Friday, and today’s prompt is CANAL.  Take your inspiration from Canal, and share your creative output (poem, prose, photo or any other art) with us using a pingback.  Thanks for participating!

I’m scheduling this in advance, as I will be traveling on its due date. I should just have completed my own transit of the Panama Canal as you get this.  I will have limited internet access during my travels, so my fellow Ragtag Prompters will be checking things. I’m sure they will do a great job, and I ask your patience with any delays that may occur.

U.S. trade with Britain will rise ‘very substantially’ after Brexit, President Donald Trump has said. 

Speaking at the White House today Trump signalled Washington would sign a new trade deal and said ‘we are agreeing to move forward’.  

His comments will be seen as a boost for Brexiteer hopes that Britain’s departure from the EU will enable successful trade deals around the world.   

The President had previously warned that Theresa May’s plans for close alignment with Brussels could ‘kill’ the prospect of a transatlantic deal.

February Poem #15

like mercury colliding...

Well, I noticed that I completely lost my mind yesterday regarding the format of my fancy invented poetry form, the horatiodet! Yesterday I missed the mark. I suppose I could blame it on a chocolate high, but after perusing the other offerings this month it seems I’ve missed it a few times! Apparently the horatiodet is harder to pull off than it looks! In yesterday’s case, the final line should have rhymed with the previous line, not the first. As a reminder, the horatiodet is a 5-line mini ode with a syllable count of 5-7-7-5-9 and a rhyme scheme of ababb (not ababa). At any rate, my mistake did not seem to diminish the effectiveness of the poem. But time to get back on track, no looking back, no regrets…

…to amended regrets

if i could i would
forgive myself, my mistakes,
leave the past behind, i should,
but stalled…

Exam tips!

SUCCESS INSPIRERS' WORLD

Exam tips!

Hi everyone I hope you are well wherever you are in the world..

I thought I would do a different one purely because this month I have my health and social exam, and because many people may be taking exams either this month or later in the year I thought it would be a good idea!

LETS GO!

TIP 1:

Before you go into an exam if you are feeling either nervous or stressed. Just take a few deep breaths, because that does tend to calm you down if you are ever feeling ever in this way, because if you do this. It will ensure that you have a clearer and more focused mind so that you are READY for your exam.

TIP 2:

Staying hydrated is very important when you are going to have an exam because sometimes the room can be very hot and…

February 14: Flash Fiction Challenge

Carrot Ranch Literary Community

It’s February 14, and I find much to love today. I can imagine that the invisible warm winds lapping at the coast of snow outside my stoop conform to aerodynamic heart-shapes. Why not? The wind is unseen so I can pick how to see it in my mind. Hearts float by and surround me in such an imaginative construct.

Today, I met a Nigerian Prince, and I loved so much about our encounter. He didn’t say he was a prince, but by his demeanor and broad smile I couldn’t help but think he was. The local Rotary Chapter invited me to speak at their weekly luncheon. Not one to miss an opportunity to read and tell stories, I accepted the invitation to be their guest. That’s where I met the Prince.

He wore cloth not from the US — it looked thicker, and held a linen-like weave. It was dark…
