Fifty-three words

for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt where the given word is Dazzling.





She wandered ‘cross the meadow. Butterflies danced, birds whistled, dazzling crystals leapt from a tumbling waterfall.

“Reach for the sun, cast aside the clouds’ an unseen voice murmured. 

Warm sunrays caressed her palms.

“Reach far, and you’ll discover paradise”.

Then she tripped, landing in a smelly cow pat.

“Whoops,” the unseen voice chuckled.

    Just when she’d glimpsed heaven, she tumbles straight back down to earth! Cow pats have a way of doing that, ha ha! Probably because they’re always so big. Elephant pats are even bigger! Love your cheeky writes, Keith! 😀

      Now you come to mention it, they are the only ‘pats’ that are! I get as much fun from creating graphics as I do writing stories, so thank you.

    Yep. Mind the gaps, as they say. And the cow pat (patty, patti).
    You made me listen to Jim Stafford’s song, “Cow Patti.” 🙂

    “Yippie eye eh Cow Patti
    She rode into town to find the man that killed her daddy”

      Now you’ve made me listen to it!

      “But he slipped in something that was layin’ in the street and was shot ‘fore he hit the ground”!

      A rather more dramatic event but I get the connection! Cheers Bill.
