Jump – Daily Prompt



I’m a Sagittarian through and through
I love adventure and excitement
I’ll do anything to make my friends happy
I’m always there to give them a hand
And never expect any favours in return
I have this old policy of “live and let live”
I want to explore the world, rivers and seas
I look for things to do, to gain wisdom and learn
In turn, I seem to be guided by good luck
The downside, I can be reckless and stumble
Frequently because I jump at something new
Before thinking of the pros and cons
Love me or hate me, I’m me – a Sagittarian


A backdrop to the ship’s arrival
The brilliant scarlet sky
Jumping for joy in a mist
Bells ringing in my dream
Running as we sail
Touching the cross
Enough said
Just kiss

Schools’ out for summer
Playing, running and swimming
Childhood memories

When I was young, summer was my favourite season. The sun was out, flowers bloomed and everything was bright and beautiful. It was the time we played outside all day (until our parents called us for dinner), cycled around our village, and seek our adventure in all places. We also swam in creeks and lakes, climbed trees, ate fruit we picked, played hide and seek. On other days, we played patintero (try to cross my line without letting me touch or catch you), tumbang preso (hit the can), piko (hopscotch) or luksong-tinik (lit. jump over the thorns of a plant). Sometimes we rented some bikes and circled around our neighbourhood. It was a happy childhood.

Summer is still my favourite season. I love it when we could be lazy and not do anything. Or staying in the garden and drinking some cold drinks, listening to the birds singing. I love our garden, full of lavenders, roses, dahlias, petunias, sunflowers, and the three tortoises walking around their fenced paradise half of our garden (spoiled pets!). I also love it when we cycle to different beer gardens and parks, or go to the mountains to walk or swim in the lakes.
