With no wall or door or fence,
the wilds a new experience,
when morning dawns, he’s off his chain
and free in nature once again.
From chair to chair and tent to tent,
He follows lovely trails of scent.
He’s on the trail of cat or rabbit—
hoping he might find and grab it.
Like movies scribed during the night,
they tell their tales of darkened flight.
He sees the various routes they chose
in pictures captured by his nose.
Humans cannot know or feel
the intricacies scents reveal.
He follows everywhere they went,
finding aromas heaven-sent.
The prompt word today was “ scent.”

Where Time Goes
They have not vanished without a trace.
Past years are written on your face.
They web your skin like finest lace,
its former smoothness to efface,
and write a story in its place.
The prompt today was replacement.

Here‘s Cee’s luscious flower. I’m horribly allergic to them, but they are surely pretty.
We didn’t really need another dog, but Frida was tired of being herded around by Diego and what could it hurt to find Diego a new playmate?

Good Morrie when in detainment
Bad Morrie when let loose.
Bad Morrie. Yes, he did pull the drawer out of the dresser all on his own.
He even knows how to open dresser drawers to get at more of them.
Morrie is a real scholar. He absolutely devours books.
and two boxes of crayons.
Diego did it!!!
Good Morrie, chewing his chew toy.
Good Morrie? Hmm. I know that look.

Good Morrie regretting past sins.
In response to this prompt:
If only brassieres were pneumatic,
uplift would be automatic.
Once more, we’d sport that perfect coning
without benefit of toning,
surgery or silicone.
Our ladies would just stand alone,
proudly there in front of us
with less strapping and less fuss.
When they invented inner tubes,
why did they neglect ones for boobs?
The prompt word today was automatic.
