BrewNSpew Cafe – September 2, 2019


reasons for seasons

a temporary farewell

mindset renewal

There are flowers enough in the summertime,
More flowers than I can remember—
But none with the purple, gold, and red
That dye the flowers of September!

—Mary Howitt (1799-1888)

Presenting the week’s challenge – You may use the words and/or the image for this week’s prompt.

Weekly prompt –

  1. sage – (noun) – a European perennial mint (Salvia officinalis) with grayish-green aromatic leaves used especially in flavoring meats.
  2. sage – (adjective) – wise through reflection and experience; a mature or venerable person of sound judgment.

Sage is thought to promote strength and longevity and believed to cure warts. American Indians used it as a toothbrush.*

think long and hard before we

decide to utter

 wiseacre murmurs

define hapless personas

  1. Eugenia,

    I mentioned yesterday that I had completed a poem using this prompt and so I wanted to return with the link to today’s Cathy Chats post where you’ll find it. I will also place it on my dedicated poetry page later. Thanks for the inspiration!
