MOLDY MISHAPS

TUESDAY 8th FEBRUARY 2021

This is a response to a Flash Fiction prompt from ‘Putting My Feet In the Dirt’, Writing Prompts hosted by ‘M’.
Which can be found by following the link below..

Prompt ~ MOLDY MISHAPS

When I first saw this prompt I thought there had been a spelling error. Apparently mould is spelt without the  letter ‘u’ in the USA. 

I understand mold as something you creatively build for example something made in clay or plasticine.

MOLDY MISHAPS


by John Yeo

Life can be a series of moldy mishaps 

Perfection will always be hard to achieve

We should embrace life as the years elapse.

~

If the downs overshadow the ups, perhaps,

It would be understandable for us to believe

Life can be a series of moldy mishaps.

~

Understanding is the way to see traps 

A contented mind should be easy to weave

If we embrace this life as the years elapse.

~

Enjoy the moment, there will be drawbacks

Recognition helps us to see and perceive

Life can be a series of moldy mishaps.

~

Moldy mishaps will never be handicaps 

If a smile shines through to help us relieve

We should embrace life as the years elapse.

~

Love is formed by positive meaningful scraps

With the antidote from the vibes we receive

If we embrace this life as the years elapse,

Life could never be a series of mouldy mishaps.

  1. So true “embrace this life as the years escape “ – this as I sit here with my arm in a sling🙄. Love your take on this. ( I spell with a ‘I’ too)
