Stream of Consciousness Saturday

Pat, Pet, Pit, Pot, Put

My Mum dropped something on my foot!

She was cooking something in the pot

She dropped that pot – it weighs a lot!

I cried. I wailed. And then I sat

And Mum she gave my head a pat.

I’m just a dog, a little pet

“Mum! Please take me to the vet!”

But I am tough, like Pete The Pit

And now it doesn’t hurt one bit.

This is my entry for this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday:

Here are the rules:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.

3. There will be a prompt every week. I will post the prompt here on my blog on Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” or “Begin with the word ‘The’.”

4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours.  Your link will show up in my comments, for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top.

5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read everyone’s! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later, or go to the previous week, by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find right below the “Like” button on my post.

6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!

7. Have fun!

    Cute poem and dog. I also like that fence in your picture. It looks like it’s made of old car fenders and a railroad track.

      Thank you for visiting and commenting 🙂
      The fence is a kind of barrier that runs along where the road crosses the railway track that cuts through our farm. I Love walks along that road but Mum won’t take me there on Wednesdays – that’s when the train comes. I would probably be frightened.

    This is great! I love your “voice” – just the way I think a Schnauzer would talk if one could. 😀
    Thanks so much for participating in SoCS!
