Water Cycle

Remember this friendly voice?

Sometimes you sit down to blog but your words and photos get stuck – prompts give them a push

That’s right, the late lamented WordPress Daily Prompt – gentle nudge of encouragement or brutal kick up the backside, depending on how far down the road of utter uselessness we were.

At the moment I’m an unlucky thirteen days up a clueless cul-de-sac and shaking my silent satnav in blind fury … although just now I remembered a useful link and, er, hit it.

Wanna know the useful link? Anyone who’s never short of subjects to write about can look away now. For the rest, here is a pretty handy webpage:


I got river, which I’ve made into an acrostic poem.

r olling ever down to wider seas
i carry weight of memory with ease
v olumes still unwritten seek their end in
e stuaries where water stories blend in
r ain clouds moving back to feed our source

Well, it’s a start … here’s hoping it’s set the ball rolling again!

    1. Hi Dave Kingsbury,

      I concur with Margy! Your response to the generated word “river” is an excellent acrostic enlivened by a image depicting convection, evaporation and precipitation.

      To reward your effort, I would like to offer you a much better way than your current reliance on a word generator to provide you with ideas for your next posts.

  1. Row, row, row your boat,
    Gently down the stream.
    Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
    Life is but a dream.
    Always marketed as a children’s song, I happily give it more depth and value and often ponder on its merit as an aid to contemplation of the universe and the strong likelihood that each of us is made of stardust.
    Now look what your poem has done to me Dave – turned me back into an optimistic hippy. Wow! Thanks as always.
    PS I hope the block disappears soon, in the meantime you certainly still have the gift to entertain your followers.

    1. Thanks as always, Mike, for such encouraging words! And you’ve given that children’s favourite a whole new lease of life! I’ve resolved to post at least once a week from now on, regardless of whether I feel I’ve got anything useful to say!

  2. Congratulations on breaking your dry spell with something so appropriate. Feel’s Jungian, somehow. Must be the ‘water stories’ – do like that.

    I’ll have to check out your prompt link, too. Sounds useful.
