SoCS: Precious

Now if this is not the most precious thing you are ever going to read, I don’t know what is! Mary created a masterpiece. Passing along greatness!!

Mary J Melange


Is the congregation of people

under a church’s steeple

in a mosque

praying in a temple


Are the poor and meek

and technology geek

daughters of the rich

sons of middle class


Multi-colored range of hues

those whose boundaries refuse

to hate the hateful

or exist with intolerance


Righteous sinners

lottery winners

the far-flung right

and the liberal left


Moms, dads, sisters, brothers

grandpa, grandma, plenty of others

family and friends

acquaintances, neighbors


Wisdom in the elderly

hotshot thinking cleverly

baby in its mother’s arms

tween with a fan-girl crush


All sizes and shapes

superheroes with capes

those unable to see

those who struggle to read


The lost and the found

wanderers who get around

a mystic with spirit

a realist who loves the facts


The world in large scope

nations perpetuating hope

countries at war

refugees seeking home

#SoCS for 10/13/18 ~ Precious

Good morning bloglandia.  Rise and shine!!  Time once again for #SoCS.  Our hostess with the mostest aka the lovely Linda gave us the following prompt:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “precious.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

Without skipping a beat.  Boom!  Gollum of JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

I have not read any of the books and have not seen any of the movies but I’d have to be living under a freakin rock to never have heard about Gollum and the ring he calls precious. The above clip freaks me out.  What a nasty little troll.  No wait he’s a hobbit.

Any who, that’s all she wrote.  My stream is caught up on the rocks.  But I still have more to say.  I know it!  Think, think and think.

What about precious metals?  A co-worker had part of her investments in precious metals but at the advice of a financial planner, she moved her stuff.  She continued to “do the math” which is my running theme of late and had she left her investment alone, she may have very well retired early.  The stock market is risky and being conservative (in my investment appetite that is), I would never have invested in precious metals to start. So I am still winning!!

Dang it!  My stream is drying up again.  Oh well, I’ve got places to go and people to see.  Me and the kiddo are headed out and about.  Then tonight is the Light the Night walk.  Sure hoping that the weather cooperates.

If you’d like to join this merry band of prompt respondents, look here for the Rules and Ping Back.

As always, more to come.
