Simply Sunday - Simply Memes..

For my Sunday Memes, I am trying a continuing theme from the last couple of weeks with the Mag/Whirl/OSI/Sunday Scribblings combo!! You can find the previous meme posts here and here

Here is my entry for Grandma's Succinctly Yours:
SY Word of the Week: serendipity
Her mommy had named her Serendipity aptly; she always seemed to have all the luck in finding the best treasures. Today’s find – chocolate! (138)



For Magpie Tales: ,  Sunday Scribblings (Suspended Reality), One Single Impression(Confirmation) and the Sunday Whirl

Whirlie words:  accident mars ask charged toll confused sacrificed libation settle plenty handle trouble

He had seen her photo,
It was a few days ago
Now he had finally found her,
Got a confirmation of her whereabouts,
And had she been in Mars or a dumpster
He knew he would be there, no doubts
Though it had taken a toll on his health
A whole week of plenty of questions asked, a little libation offered
And with his resources of wealth
Any trouble faced was handled
And now, he had got the answers
There had been an accident – a misstep on the tightrope
She had recovered with the help of her friend dancers (!)
They told him she had afterwards been confused, had lost hope
She had not known where to go, where to settle
And she had reached here, in this place of suspended reality
As he saw her through the haze, he admired her mettle
He thought of all that had been sacrificed – the cost,
And hoped that it would all be worth it, he knew it would
She then turned, glanced his way, she looked lost
A second glance brought her closer, of course it should
The very air seemed charged with emotions
Long held close to heart
Now they spilled outwards in joyous motions
With nothing to hold this long-lost father and daughter apart!


  1. Wow! This piece paints an interesting journey fueled by intense love.

  2. Wow! Lucky Lady, that Serendipity. :) I like her name.
    I'm liking your poem too. I may skip OSI this week.

  3. a lovely bit of a reunion in your verse....left me with a smile...

  4. Another completely different direction with the wordles (and other prompts!). I admire you that you were able to combine them all. I had a different kind of 'circus' :) Cheers!

  5. Perfect name for the little raccoon, Serendipity, because what's more serendipitous than finding chocolate?! Very cute story.

  6. You tell quite a story here.
    And I always like a happy ending.


  7. I came to see your Serendipity microfiction (so cute, I love chocolate), and stayed to read your wonderful poem. I can't imagine being able to work all those things in together to make such a lovely story with a happy ending. Good for you. This is super.

  8. This is my fave today. I'm a chocolate lover, too, and naming the Raccoon "Serendipity" was a nice touch.

  9. Hello.
    Some story here. I'm impressed with your use of all the prompts.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Here's my OSI:Thirsting For Your Love

  10. Serendipity was aptly named. Maybe that should be my name too. I love chocolate and am pretty good at locating any that is in the house!

  11. Thank you to all of you for your lovely comments...
