About Me

My photo

My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Nifty Fifty

Today is the Nifty 50 Blogfest hosted by Anstice Potts at Impossible Dreams, in celebration of reaching 50 followers.
The brief is to write a poem, a short scene, anecdote or even a list of your top 50 favourite things; the choice is yours! Whatever you choose, it has to involve the number 50 in some significant way'.


Here's mine:

Shifty Fifty by Madeleine Maddocks

It's not long now
Just a couple of years
Before I reach those Birthday
Blues
Fears.


What age you ask?
You hardly know
I'm heading towards my Big
Five
O.


You hold my gaze
My eyes are shifty
"It's half a century,
Okay,
Fifty!"
