The Saturday Symphony #12 (Birthday edition)

Hi guys. It’s my birthday today. And also the 12th edition of The Saturday Symphony.
How auspicious is that?

Early morning mood

Here’s a little senryu to kick us off;

With Age
I Welcome
Wisdom

Happy birthday to me.

This week’s three featured posts

  1. The games of sorcerers by Olga – If you’re a Tolkien geek like me, you won’t find a better site. I had to share this.
  2. Mad rhymes by Delia – Outstanding and amazing rhythm with fathomless depths of emotion.
  3. You in another life by Gabriella – This sensual poem swept me off my feet.
A Symphony cake for y’all

PONDEROUS THOUGHT

HAUNTINGS

What is your favourite location for a chilling horror and what would that horror be?

Have fun with this, all forms of writing, art and images are welcome.

Don’t forget to pingback to this post so I can find you, and so others can also join in.

I hope it’s not weird that I’m celebrating my birthday with a horror prompt, but I love horror.

Ponderous writers from last week’s feature

“MYTHICAL CREATURES”

Thank you all, lots of love.

A sunny day selfie, it’s my birthday!

Don’t forget to use this week’s ponderous thought above.

Be sure to pingback to this post, and also paste the link to your post in the comments section just to be sure I find you.

Remember to love, and then love some more.
I know I will.

Sorry, I just can’t stop myself.

I hope you visit all the featured posts,
Just click on the links and enjoy.

Can’t wait for your horror pieces this week.

Stay safe everyone.

  19. Happy Birthday!!!
    You have allowed us into your life and become a part of ours…
    Have you heard of Guy Fieri – he is an American chef. He hosts a bunch of shows on the Food Channel here. And while I’m sure he is not the first… sometimes he says of his judges (on one show) and even sometimes of his guests who he is friendly with… “Please welcome my Brother from another Mother! (or… My Sister from another Mister!) – And you have become a welcoming sibling in the blogging community for your writing and the hosting of your prompt The Saturday Symphony!!

    While horror isn’t my thing… I’ll try to ‘dig’ up something ‘haunting’ and perhaps ‘chilling’….😵

    Best to you this day and everyday!! Cheers 🎂 ~Jules
