Hello Toads and Toad followers! I'm Shay Caroline, also known as Fireblossom of Shay's Word Garden. Listen, I was just sitting here on a toadstool (of course! where else?) minding my own business, when Kerry handed me tap shoes and a top hat and shoved me out here on stage! Well all right...I think I'll call this Fireblossom Fridays!
My sudden arrival (thanks, Kerry! Geez, I think her hand prints are permanently imprinted on my back!) gave me the idea for today's theme: Arrivals & Departures.
Think about it. There are all kinds of arrivals and departures. Here are some arrivals...
And some departures...
So I wonder...
Where might a girl like the one pictured at the top of this post be going, and why?
Here's what I want you to do:
Create a post based on any of these photographs, or one of your own, on the theme of arriving or departing.
Link back to Real Toads.
Sign in on Mr. Linky so that we can come and see.
And, finally, please try to comment on at least three others.
That's it! I look forward to visiting everyone who participates! As for now...hello, I must be going!
This is an old one.but I dont think a new one could so perfectly match the idea of this prompt.This one is linked with the first picture. enjoy!
I shall be around this evening to see what everyone has written!
Great prompt, Shay, and great to see you hosting, even if you're still loofahing off Kerry's fingerprints from your back. I've linked a poem I wrote specifically for this theme about my grandfather's journey from Sweden to America in the early 1900's.
I used the pic at the very top of the post as my inspiration, but sneaked in an image that seemed to suit the words better when I was done. I really had to scrape out my arteries for this one, Shay!
LOVE the prompt, Shay! i'll be back with a submission. ♥
excellent prompt shay...i will see where my mind takes me today...
Thank you, Shay... this is a great prompt!!
A new one I just wrote yesterday surprisingly fits.
Oh YAY!!!! Fireblossom Fridays! I so love it. Now I have to come up with a poem. I have a Masters in Departures, I dont have far to look! hee hee. Yippee! fun prompt.
I chose the picture of the girls with the lantern. I have never attempted to write a story so I thought I would tread upon those waters It is a work in progress. Not sure how it will end.
oh sigh, i have written over and over about arriving and departing. i wrote something new today, but i think i've done better on this subject. that's how it goes, i guess :)
Wow ... talk about a community! You guys are instrumental in my "moving along" in life. Thank you. This was a fabulous prompt!
I've seen so many people that I follow linking up to Real Toads this week that I had to come by to see what all the fuss was about :) Great prompt, Shay. I'll def be back.
Congrats on your new feature, Shay...how exciting! I linked up a poem I wrote earlier this week :)
Good one this. Happy to have a go - which I now have done.
alright, i made it back...late but...smiles.
Saturday morning here...just wrote my poem. Will be around to visit each of you now!
I am late but this prompt was good so I posted too ~
Happy Saturday ~
Wow, you're really getting around, Fireblossom! Great prompt.
Fireblossom Fridays sound so appealing. Here's hoping y'all will enjoy my poem, a little darker than my usual submissions.
A great prompt
I'm submitting an old one which fits the prompt. IT purports to be about an arrival but the subtext is of departure.
Oh sorry, I may have misunderstood.My piece has no accompanying photo.
I was so excited about the first Fireblossom Friday that I totally forgot to comment! Sorry about that, Shay. The prompt is awesome, and I think your new space is going to be a blast!
^^ Thank you, Favorite. :-)
