Saturday Centus - I Want You For

Welcome to


       Jenny begins our centus with, "There's a yellow rose in Texas" as our prompt.

Our rules for engagement are simple. 105 words, any style writing, pictures and no messing with the prompt!

Here's how I drive my main road.

But yellow is hardly my favorite color.

and listening to Glen Campbell is so yesterday's music my darling.

Oh without a doubt
I can hear you through the wine

watching you ride each bubbly surf,
of yesterday
as it's always about your turf.

and your dreams of towing the line man
it's just a brawny line
when you're such a ladies man.

and when our goings get tough
you're the man

you pour a little more wine

and I want you for

all time

and not just for your intellectual mind man.

But rather, our unexpected discoveries.

Always have.
Always will.

There's a yellow rose in Texas, but not for us!
Do you need to hear that old favorite song one more time?  This is for you, enjoy their climb!

So, I know you're just tugging at your keyboard to play along too. So give in to those deepest of desires and throw caution to blogging unless of course, you'd rather follow your heart to Texas instead!
Just go here

Hey Karen, well done...or as they say here in Chile, bien hecho!! Hope you have a great week!

Strange to see a married couple walking like that on the street.


Judie said...

Geez, I thought I was the only one who couldn't deal with this prompt! Now that I've got my head on straight, maybe I can go write my own Centus some time today! Thanks, Karen!

Like they say, everything is big in Texas. This definately is a big hit! You always amaze me with your talent!

Jenny Woolf said...

Unusual and unexpected! wow!

Karen you're amazing, your mind is full of creativity and I love what you did with your prompt. I especially love the final photo of the newlyweds, how unique.

Karen S. said...

I just noticed my last line, with the prompt wasn't showing! Fixed!

Awesome montage!

Jenny said...


I love you.

And not in a creepy, made-for-TV-movie kind of way.

But in a...

you-are-amazing-and-your-writing-always-moves-my-heart kind of way.


Your creativity is amazing.

I would love, love, love to meet you someday, my dear!
