August’s birth flowers are the gladiolus and the poppy

prompt image – August 5, 2019

silhouette, a saboteur of my spirit as

I reminisce with a sad and heavy heart

looking at your profile, stern and angular,

hunting for signs of gentleness and goodwill

original feelings blurred and reckless

unto to myself lies the energy of blame

eternal love rewards those who seek it

tears of joy or tears of sadness, no matter

truth is the fortunate stroke of serendipity

embarking on my quest for happiness

BS Cafe 5



Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Fandango, which, for the purpose of this blog, is my pseudonym. My real world identity will remain a mystery.

So I’m Fandango, but not as in the Fandango app that you use to check show times and to purchase movie tickets. Oh no. I’m Fandango, for those of you who are Queen fans, as made infamous by the lyrics to Bohemian Rhapsody…

Please support your fellow bloggers

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.

    A Haiku I just wrote Eugenia


    Her lone silhouette
    Forever etched in the stars
    Shadows of my heart
