Challenge Accepted #47

I am thankful for all of you who took the time and effort to link this challenge and those of you who replied to it in the comments section. I hope you all had fun doing it. 🙂

These are the entries for the TPS#47 that was posted on the 23rd of June.

The week’s phrase was –

“A silver sliver……”

The replies (in no particular order)

  1. Ted – “..…of a giant non sequitur!”
  2. Dymoon – “..was all that glittered in the dark, yet the blanket of night that shrouded them was like molten lava a dark ebony that made his touch all the more compelling, like the silver sliver of light, she felt her response respond with lighting speed, their bodies met, the fire was ignited…”
  3. Anglogermantranslations – “..… in the sky made the coward jump over the moon.”
  4. Elusivetrope – “..….beneath the epidermis, the last vestige of their junkyard salad days.”
  5. JaneDougherty – “..a starlit river, sends a shiver down my spine.”
  6. Amy – “.. reflected on the wall in the dark of the night, sweet dream.”
  7. Victo – “..of metal glistened in the moonlight before sliding into his bared chest.”
  8. Sri Sudha – “..spilled out on the waves…for, its a full moon day…
    lit up the dark spaces…for, its a full moon day…
    spread in the cheers..for, its a full moon day…
    the lovely august moon,
    made it all silver silver…
    as we lay on our beds bidding bye to a tiring day….”
  9. Tessa – “..of the moon lit up the outside area and allowed her to see the monster in her yard.”
  10. Pri – “..of the moon reminds me of the smile on grandma’s face as she sang lullabies , of nights when I didn’t fear the dark”

I have tried to include every entry, but if I have missed someone, please point it out in the comments and I’ll say sorry like a nice person and add the missing response.


About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.
