This is Pat slipping in as Yves is away for July – so I’ll be minding the storefront for her prompts.
So it’s Sunday – and maybe it’s a lazy day for you? If here in N.A. it’s a long weekend for many and for those in Europe or Asia, perhaps the start of holidays. As for those on the flip side – hello Aussies and Kiwis – it’s Winter, and maybe it’s already Monday – and you need to chase the blues?
So here’s this week’s Sunday writing prompt. And if Oloriel posts one as well, you can pick and choose.
A quote from Bukowski and a mixed bouquet of flowers – featuring Ranunculus.
Sit with the quote and/or the images – and pick some essence or element and let your mind wander. It’s a powerful quote and you can wander into so many territories here.
Write in the style and form you wish – as it pleases you. Choose the positive, feature the negative, upstyle the mix of both elements.
Write a poem. Write some flash. Peel me a grape.
In other words: “Fill me up, buttercup”
Members of the genus include the buttercups, spearworts, and water crowfoots. The petals are often highly lustrous, especially in yellow species. Buttercups usually flower in the spring, but flowers may be found throughout the summer, especially where the plants are growing as opportunistic colonizers, as in the case of garden weeds.
All Ranunculus species are poisonous when eaten fresh by cattle, horses, and other livestock, but their acrid taste and the blistering of the mouth caused by their poison means they are usually left uneaten.

So Peel me a Grape – just a hand-full will do – and please ping back and/or leave your tales in Mr. Linky’s Hands – he is so capable. Remember to include the tags MLMM, Sunday Writing Prompt in your posts.
You have a week to play around.
And because there was a request about the “featured image” that shows up in your WP readers or on the main MLMM page – here it is – as far as I know, it’s another Google image – a free wallpaper design. Enjoy 🙂
