Day 30 Thirty Books

June 30, 1936. Margaret Mitchell’s book, Gone with the Wind, was published. 

Your last Challenge!

Have you dreamt of writing a novel? Set a timer for thirty minutes and free write! Write whatever comes to mind, then take just a few moments to do some simple editing such as correcting grammar and spelling.

Alternative: Have you read Gone with the Wind? Do you want to read it? What books do you want to read? What books have you read that you recommend? What books do you not recommend or will you not read?

Give us your list of thirty books.

June 1-30 Challenge – Day 30 – Thirty Books

I really don’t know much about books, I haven’t read one for years, I just don’t have the time to read them, so I decided to “Set a timer for thirty minutes and free write”, This is what I came up with.

Figurines and Ornaments.

As I have just finished dusting and setting all my ornaments up in the cabinet, after shifting them from my farm home, here my thought’s about figurines.

They are messy hard to handle little things, I’m afraid of breaking them, but I love them.

As a collector of beautiful art work, of subjects like landscapes, animals, birds, flowers, fruit, fairies, and angels, it had become an addiction.

They were mainly gifts given to me from my family as they knew I collected them, or I would never have had some many.

I was known for my collection, and when birthdays etc came around, these were the kind of gift’s I received, I really appreciated every one of them.

I used to spend hours sitting at my china cabinet dusting and cleaning all my fairies and angel ornaments, each one has special memories of a person dear to my heart, that gave me them, as everyone was a gift of love.

Do you collect ornaments or are you a person that think they are just clutter, taking up space?

Avon Figurines

Now that was 30 mins writing, but when I did the editing, I had been doing a lot of rambling, I deleted most of it, I think it will be a while before I write a book.

So this is the last post of “June 1 – 30 challenge”, hope you enjoyed reading my rambles.

Haiku to finish off the challenge, the vision is the photo at the top.

If time would stand still

My greatest pleasure would be

Shady tree and book.

Day 29 Track Twenty-nine

June 29, 1896. The St. Louis and San Francisco Railroad Company (predecessor of the St. Louis – San Francisco Railway) is incorporated.

In the old Glen Miller song “The Chattanooga Choo Choo” the train departs on Track 29.

Have you ever ridden a train? Write a post about a train. Tell us about train ride you have taken or one you’d like to take. Make up a story about a train or write a poem featuring a train. Share pictures of trains. Your choice!

 June 1-30 Challenge – Day 29 – Track Twenty-nine

No track twenty-nine this time

Making my escape from a life of crime

Crime inflicted on my body since birth

Train carriages beating a tune along the line

Echoing as we rounded the corners

Help save me, life not for mourners

What the future holds no one knows

Sheep scatters as the wheels beat a tune.

It’s time now, it’s time now,

Time what for?

What happens when the train reaches the platform

Will my life be measured by more pain

Or will it be back to track twenty-nine

To depart again singing “The Chattanooga Choo Choo” song.

Intro to Poetry – Day Four – Journey

east stratford NZ

Intro to Poetry – Day Four – Journey

East Stratford Taranaki NZ.

Journey I will never travel again

Visiting a relation twenty years ago.

A road so narrow and slippery

No car coming the other way could past.

Nerves shattered

Holding on to faith

Eyes closed

Begging to let me walk

No way would I be returning

On that mountain track

With no sight of land below

The banks that looked like hell

Who would live

In this beautiful valley

Where nature is still intact

With only a mountain track.

This is a true story, I just have to add that we did get to our destination, to find out that there was a perfect road coming in from the opposite direction, so needless to say I was so happy, no way was I going to travel that track ago, they would have had to get a helicopter in to take me out.
