Before the morning sun appears, I'm awoke with poetry in my ears A sweet melody to awake all God's creatures, they seek rest neath the stars, twilights, best features, if chittering were lyrics, it would be a love song, the sliding horn sound is so moving, you'll want to sing along, it sings tirelessly each day for it has a cheerful heart, the sweet singing slows to a lullaby, as the twinkling stars impart, There perched, are singing Thrush, and they're calling it a day, stick around and watch the sunrise, and let's hear what they have to say
It was another blistering day in the valley! Everyday for the past two weeks had gone over the 100° mark, and attitudes were really starting to be effected! It was hard to find something to be happy about when you are sweating so much, you look like you are in one continuous rainstorm! The smell was pretty rancid too! This heat had been bad for business too! No one wanted to play soccer when chances of ending up in someone's arm pit, or even worse, a sweaty crotch, were pretty much a guarantee! No soccer, no one was hungry and ordering any food! I was selling drinks like crazy, but not a lot of profit there! Oh, hello there! I didn't see you come in! How you doin? My name is Fat Freddy, and I have a sandwich shop, that has the best sandwiches you can find, anywhere in New York. We like to play cards on days like this! When sitting still has you hoping someone gets mad and takes a swipe at ya just to get some kind of a breeze! Fagit about it!! One of my "acquaintances", Fat Tony, likes to take the occasional bet on different sport competitions! He's not to be confused with Fat Sal, who likes to change a status from walking to cripple if you skip on a losing bet! Fat Tony has never crippled anyone! It seems he helps them relocate, never to be heard from again! Pretty effective! Fagit about it!!! Oh hey! How you doin? I thought the smell had gotten to you too! Aohh! Fagit about it! I hope you will come back again when the temps are a little cooler. You bring money to buy "sandwiches" and be ready for some soccer & cards! Don't make me send Fat Tony looking fa ya! Aohh! Fagit about it!
Set in Brooklyn, NY Sandwich shop owned by Fat Freddy This will appear when Fat Freddy is just thinking aloud This will appear when he engages with you, the audience He speaks with a New York accent and considers himself a "Good fella"!
It all started with a very short story, called Evil Spells! My very first comment was from @minacarki, asking if I planned on continuing the story. Then my next comment was from @crogers180, saying she would like that too!
So the story was born, and friendships were made! The two mentioned above, I have come to care very much about! I would just like to give a special thank you to these two, for inspiring me to continue on with a story that became a huge part of my writing life. I loved all of the characters, and became quite protective of them. SO, THANK YOU, MY TWO BEAUTIFUL FRIENDS❗❗❗❗❗❗
Of course there were many more readers that came after and gave me inspiration for some of their quips or their tag, that I ended up using in my story, that made it just a little more personal! I came up with my own language called fairy babble, that had me laughing many times while I was writing! The main characters were as follows: Blanche, Jinks, Orchid, Greta, Stanton Knick knack and Patty whack Drew, Dilly, Max, Pilly, This and That Doodlebug Clan, Parlay Harmony, Bridget Kat and Rose, Glimmerwings
THANK YOU ALL FOR READING AND CONTINUING TO SUPPORT ME TO THE FINALE! IT HAS MEANT A LOT! NOW ON TO MY NEXT ADVENTURE!

#evilspells (first series) and #bloomingorchids (second series) and #petals_owl (first series of Desperate Petals on Wisteria Lane) A weekly saga of flowers and their quirky personalities, just trying to get through life one blooming day at a time! Funny and disturbing!!!!!
Stanton looked confused, but Orchid said, "oh, Detective Jasper will be bringing her to the vineyard since Chidera's apartment was a crime scene now, and they have some evidence to pick up! So dad, can you drive my truck home so I can ride with Drew?" " Of course sweetheart, no problem! I'll see you there!" On the ride home, it was complete silence! When they pulled up, Drew turned off the engine, and they both just sat there staring off into space. They turned and looked at each other, and just fell into each other's arms. Within seconds, they were both sobbing, harder than either had ever done in their lives! When they pulled back just enough to see each other's swollen faces and puffy eyes, they both started frantically talking about how it could have been their babies just as easily! What a scary realization! Stanton pulled up and said, "I called to have the helicopter to pick you up in a hour, time for you to shower, and eat before going to the hospital." "Oh thanks Dad," Orchid said, and then hugged him so tight! She was so tired, even her eyelashes hurt! Nothing compared to what those poor winkers must feel! She called Jinks when she was dressed and told him everything that she knew! They agreed that he would wait for her phone call tomorrow, on whether they should bring the winkers home or not! Jinks, Orchid said, "thank you for always being there even when I don't know I need you, I love you!" "I love ya too Poppy, just like you was my own, now go look in on the winkers, cause everything here is pickled and sealed! (Fairy talk for fine) At the hospital, they were shown to a newer wing of the hospital, where the only patients were the fairy winkers! There were officers placed at the entrance and exit, and security guards placed throughout the hospital! Orchid really couldn't imagine anyone risking getting caught, to try anything at the hospital! Besides dehydration and some bug bites, most everyone was going to be fine! Six of the thirty had been dead when the Doodlebug clan found them! It was horrible, but considering everything, they were lucky there wasn't a lot more! Twenty four, including knickknack and Patty whack, were in good condition and were being released to Orchid on behalf of the Blanche House! Stanton would be showing up with a couple of the motor homes to take the winkers back to Blanche House! It had been a long few days, it would be great to get some uninterrupted sleep! Detective Jasper and Glimmerwings, were careful to not touch anything in the actual crime scene, but Glimmerwings had to maneuver around to get everything she had hidden, including all the money! She repeated her question that he had kind of skirted around. "Tell me how much there be an I will turn it over to ya!" Jasper chuckled and said, " there is or should be $125,000.00 dollars, that had been paid by Helena Babitch, and is evidence, and then there is Chidera's personal money that she always kept track of because she had told Jasper at one time, she didn't want any of that evil money! That amount is around $62,000 last time she reported to me!" Glimmerwings smiled and said, you are off by 10.00. Jasper told her that she was entitled to Chidera's savings and any of her personal belongings that she would like to keep! After everything was logged in as evidence, it takes a couple days and it would be released to her! Glimmerwings was having uneasy feelings, but wasn't sure why yet! It was'nt about Jasper, she knew that, but something was stirring inside and making her feel very uneasy! Jasper took her back to the vineyard, where they sat parked in the driveway, just learning about each other! They discovered that they had a lot in common, such as they had both lived in the Phillipine Islands for a time! Their parents had worked on a cruise ship that had docked on an island there for over a month! Jasper was really smitten with this spitfire of a woman! He was half bent over and kind of lost his balance, when he kind of awkwardly fell toward Glimmerwings, when she let him have it, right between his eyes. She told him, "oh no you don't you sneaky dirty fairy man, you'll not be getting in my knickers anytime soon." Oh wait, Jasper said, " you misunderstood, I was only leaning and lost my balance, I didn't mean to make you think I was lunging at you for a kiss or something else!" Glimmerwings blushed at that statement! Oh man! Here came that wave of foreboding again, that she kept having! It was literally making her nauseous! When she went inside Drew and Orchid were sitting cuddled up on the overstuffed loveseat, looking as though they were asleep, but as Glimmerwings tip toed by, Orchid waved to her to come and sit! They talked like sisters into the wee hours of morning! Their conversation was of many things, but mostly serious, with the occasional snort and snore out of Drew that brought on some girly giggling! Glimmerwings told Orchid of the uneasy, foreboding feelings she'd been having for the last couple days. She said she wasn't getting any visions, but that the feeling of anxiety and gloom and doom were overwhelming her to the point of nausea and dizziness! She had never experienced this much weight of sadness, to the extent of feeling like she couldn't breathe. Whatever was hanging over her, was the most powerful but hopeless feeling she had ever had to decipher, and she, as of yet had no clue as to what looked ahead! Orchid woke to the sound of very loud knocking on the front door! She looked around trying to get her bearings of the what's, why's, and how's of waking up next to Drew and Glimmerwings, all of which did not have the wherewithall to manage climbing the stairs, to properly go to bed! The knocking at the door began again, waking Drew and Glimmerwings too! They both sleepily looked at each in utter confusion! Drew, being Drew, said, "what a lucky man I am, waking up with two lovely ladies on either side of me!" He looked to be fantasizing, when Orchid threw a pillow at his head! She winked, as she finally reached the front door!.... ....MEANWHILE! Jinks and Harmony were rounding up all the winkers for breakfast, so they could catch the ferry back to What-knot Island! It started raining, but news had said to expect some light rain and possible thunderstorms!
I see you shining bright, each night I long to absorb your blinding light I feel your power, and know your source Spoken into existence, by God, of course As a child, there was a rhyme, or perhaps A tune, That spoke of a cow that jumped over the moon My question is easy, but needs an answer soon, Was there a cat that could fiddle, a laughing dog, but really, "a dish ran away with a spoon?"
My husband is spontaneous, me, I like to plan! I also read instructions He wont, cause he's a man! Our drawers are full of spare parts, for everything we own, if "some assembly" was required, the "extra" piece left over, in the drawer is thrown!
Oh but what I would give today For dark clouds and raindrops To sit among the petals soft Where drizzle drops pelt my Window pane, and my heart's pain, washed clean with every Clear droplet that finds it's way To where the thirst is so, that I Slurp and suckle at nature's teat To bring moisture to the dry and Barren edges of my reality.

❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ Gardenia was excited to start her new job, her boss, Cedar, said it had been slow, but when she opened the door, there was a mob! There were petals of every color, shape, and size, but she noticed a cluster of petals in a corner, whispering and pointing at another petals thighs! She was always fair, even with the bullies, what a shame, but she had to set a precedent, so she pointed, blew her whistle, and said, "what's your name"? Well everything went quiet, you could have heard a seed drop, the petal said, "my name is Dahlia, honey, don't ever call me out like that, I'm not joking, you just STOP" Gardenia felt a tinge of worry that she had maybe gone too far, when she saw pulling up in front was a really bitchin car! Mitch and Mae Meadowsweet were hoping to work out, but the place was over capacity with petals strewn about! Gardenia, in her loudest voice, asked everyone to hush, then Bud walked in and said, "what's growin on, so many petals , WHAT A RUSH!" The giggly petals in the corner, bolted toward the door past Bud, then while gossiping on the sidewalk, a bus sped by, showering all of them with mud! Gardenia was busting at the seams trying so hard not to smile, but her resolve was rather weak, so she puckered up and blew a kiss, smilin all the while. Needless to say, her first day was a combo of good and bad, but the petals that stayed, said it was the best work out they'd ever had! Clem was locking up as Gardenia went brushing past, they gazed too deep and long, so it got awkward really fast! Clem kinda sidestepped away thinking of her southern drawl, Gardenia was so hyper, she climbed a huge rock wall! The dirty petals were busy brewing up some grubs, to spread in Gardenia's flower beds and underneath her shrubs! Just who did she think she was, anyway?
Well I am excited to see what happens next week! Will Gardenia's shrubs and flowers, survive the grubs? Will Clem try to woo Gardenia, and will Daisy find out and turn him into mulch? Are Dahlias blossoms real or the work of the Lanes own horticulturist, Dr. Dandyweed? Yep! They are what he calls, #7 bloom enhancer! Now you know!
This week's suggestion from the flower pot is: save some money and aerate your own flower beds! Have a couple glasses of wine and put on your high heels and just stumble around! Lol! Suggestion number 2). Every flower community should invest In a mulcher, or wood chipper, cause you never know when you are Going to need to disappear some stinkweeds!
The moon , a poetic muse .... Nudged the quill , pleading it to spill , Some ink to sculpt , A masterpiece tonight . By weaving wonders , looking at the star spangled sky . And give him some rest , much needed respite .
A pair of eyes , Gazed deep into the Empyrean vast . Wondering in awe , As billion dots twinkled away . Suspended in the abyss , held by an unknown rein .
For once , the moon gave up its pride , For the sake of these luminous souls . That light up the night sky , Sitting right beside .
And thus , an ode was written , About the mystique and magic of a stars life . A sparkling ball of ethereal light , Burning slowly towards its ultimate demise .
A paradox , with a raging core And a halo soft . Living through million years , Hiding behind the day's curtain , Peeping out only when the night comes by .
And just as he thought , He was done for the night . A shooting star , with a blazing tail , Darting across , caught his eyes .
The splendor of the yonder , Beckoned him once again . As he sat with his quill , Ruminating about the shooting stars existence .
How wondrous he thought , that a piece of rock , Turned into a ball of fire and light . As it made its journey , Transcending from the space into earth's lap .
Each time a shooting star falls to ground , Hearts are crossed , wishes are made . Signifying renewal , a beginning afresh ...
