Imagine Part Of Your Body Has A Voice

 Decide on a particular part of your body and imagine it has a voice – what do you think it would have to say for itself – humorous or sensible – your foot, your mouth, your ear, your head, etc.

Your piece of writing might include detailed description, facts, names and technical details. Or just Imagine it can tell us about itself and what it feels like to be it.

THE INEVITABLE AGEING PROCESS

by John Yeo

The inevitability of the ageing process.
As the body begins to slow down
The mind continues to function on regardless.

~

Millions of brain cells communicating
Talking to each other and remonstrating
Generating a hubbub of noisy chatter.

~

The continuation and maturation
With ongoing natural development,
Brings the added inevitable complication
Of slow diminution and deterioration,
Leading to insidious mental retardation.

~

As brain cells enter a mode of self destruction.
The process is slow but sure degeneration
Forgetfulness brings further complication.

~
Leading to the hopeless realisation

Although getting old is inevitable

~
Silence can be golden.

Diamond Jack had his hideout next to the Rattle Snake river.
Jack a wolf whisperer was famous for his efforts to reintroduce the gray wolf into the wild, 300 miles away in New Hampshire. The Brigadier had recruited him to go on ahead and prepare the way for the assault on the Alaskan laboratory.
Marg and Angelo boarded a small boat and approached the complex by water. A torchlight twinkled as arranged and they landed to find Jack. Grinning he said he had taken out the wolves using knockout drops delivered by darts and they had just one hour to do the job. Angelo and Jack went off to deal with the guards, and lay the explosives leaving Marg to infiltrate the building alone.
Shooting broke out in the grounds. A figure dashed out followed by a large wolf. The firing got closer and Marg took the opportunity to enter the lab. Suddenly there was a mighty explosion!
Some days later……………
