Forty four words

for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt where the given word is Yonder and the limit, 44 words.


Now this is wierd. This story came into my head whilst I lay in bed this morning, and before I’d seen the prompt. I just had to change ‘over there’ to ‘yonder’!




ROSEY LARGE BWP‘Look yonder’ I said. ‘Isn’t that, err, Scarlet, Chris and their mum?’

‘That’s not a scarlet chrysanthemum, it’s a red rose’ said Rosey. ‘And why did you call me Yonder?’

‘No Rosey. Scarlet, Chris and  …’

‘Silly me, you’re right. Of course it’s a chrysanthemum!’

    I never think of clever stuff like that when I wake up. Quite clever…and weird.

    Just enjoy the bulbs – beautiful at the moment … cheers Hilary

      Thank goodness for Grammarly spell checker – I didn’t have a clue either! Off for a walk among the dafodils.

    Now that made me smile. What a fun play on words. I’m thinking Rosey appears often in your work? I like her!

      At least 140 times over the past 12 years or so Jenne! She’s delighted to have made your acquaintance!

    It’s funny, I was thinking of Rosey recently. It’s nice to have her back, getting things all muddled again. Fun read, Keith 🙂

    Surely you’re joking!
    (Go for it)
    And I’m not sure which of you is battier, but Rosey is much prettier.

      She’s driven me batty, and clearly you’ve not seen me when I hit the town!

    Dear Keith,

    Does Rosey need hearing aids? Or does she need to pay better attention? Cute story.
