BrewNSpew Cafe – April 1, 2019

days full of sunshine

can’t help but love butterflies

beginning of spring

 Word of the week –

applause – (noun) –
approval or praise expressed by clapping.

Synonyms – clapping, handclapping, cheering, acclamation, whistles, bravos, curtain calls, encores.

Applause is a receipt, not a bill – Dale Carnegie



is welcomed

and well deserved

based on performance.

You orate with honed tongue

should we tune into your words?

A derring-do speech is welcomed

to lift us and birth inspiration

but only true words deserve an encore.

And there’s more to come, friends! Here is what’s happening at the BrewNSpew Cafe!

On Mondays, I publish a post titled BrewNSpew Cafe. One of the highlights is I select a “word/expression of the week”. I create my composition with my interpretation.

You’re welcome to join our talented community and challenge yourselves by composing your own creation using the week by week featured word. Please and thank you for limiting your post to 300 words or fewer.

Link your blog to mine with a Pingback. To do a Pingback: Copy the URL (the HTTPS:// address of my post) for the current week’s Challenge and paste it into your post. You may also place a copy of the URL of your post in the comments of the current week’s Challenge post.

The prompt will close 5 days from the date of my post. I will post a week after week wrap-up of posts shared by our kindred bloggers.

How about we be innovative and have fun!

  8. No worries! I’ve followed your blog off and on for a while. Seems WordPress wants to play games and some of my follows became unfollowed?! Now, I keep track of those I want to follow in the Manager. 🙂
