BrewNSpew Cafe – July 22, 2019


summer blues are hues

deepened by a sapphire sky

changes on the way

Tears of joy are like the summer rain drops pierced by sunbeams.
– Hosea Ballou

Weekly Prompt – Let’s add a little twist to the challenge based on the quote by Hosea Ballou. You may use the quote or any part of it and/or the image for this week’s prompt. Stay cool and out of the heat and most of all have fun!

sunbeams bring honeyed dreams

clouded by much-gone wrong

raindrops, blue, flow in streams

glum whispers of woeful songs

sorrows grasp and now the norm

provoke anguish to a fragile heart

fears and worries a ferocious storm

 flail mortals and creatures like plastic art

but raindrops, blue, sweet lullabies

 lucid shadows and sunny delights

 children play under clear blue skies

Here’s what is going on at the cafe. On Mondays, I publish a post titled BrewNSpew Cafe. A weekly feature is I share a word and/or image for your interpretation. I have included my own creation addressing the prompt.

Please join our talented community and challenge yourselves by contributing your own creation using the week by week featured word, image or both. There are no restrictions, except please and thank you for limiting a written post to 300 words or fewer.
