A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.

Saturday Spotlight – June 12, 2021

Welcome again to Saturday Spotlight! Where I choose what I consider a standout piece from my Sunday Writing Prompt.

This week’s prompt was, Not my Circus, Not my Monkeys, https://mindlovemiserysmenagerie.wordpress.com/2021/06/06/sunday-writing-prompt-not-my-circus-not-my-monkeys/

This week’s subject aimed toward drama. Do you get involved, or run for the hills? And what is the reason for your choice? It’s difficult to stay out of situations that don’t directly involve you, especially when it comes to someone you love or feel is righteous in their stance. But, is the toil it takes on YOU worth the involvement? Toss a bucket of water on a fire, but get burned in the process…

My choice for this week was wisely guided, but found it very difficult to stand back and watch drama play out without expressing their opinions. At the end of the day, if you involve yourself, it IS your circus, and they ARE your monkeys.

That said, my choice for this week’s Saturday Spotlight goes to, Sadje, https://lifeafter50forwomen.com/2021/06/09/sunday-writing-prompt-june-6-2021-not-my-circus-not-my-monkeys/

Enjoy Sadje’s submission: Not my Circus, Not my Monkeys:

Don’t jump into the fray
And don’t fight battles that aren’t yours
It takes a toll on your nerves
When you fight for something not your concern
These are the words of wisdom often spoken to me


But I’m of the kind that always has an opinion
And cannot stay quiet when things are going downhill
Telling someone you care about that they are making a mistake
Has often landed me in more trouble than them


Is there a middle way that I can tread
Where I don’t sit aloof and see something going wrong
Or get broken-hearted because I cared too much
I do feel that it IS my circus, and these are my monkeys

Please, take a moment and visit Sadje’s personal page, and give the kudos she deserves, https://lifeafter50forwomen.com/

Tune in tomorrow for the next, Sunday Writing Prompt. Hope you have your poetry pants on 🙂

    I had hoped to respond to this prompt, but I was seriously entwined in a circus with way too many monkeys.

      No worries, you can always respond! There’s no REAL timeline. If it inspires you, just go for it 🙂
