What is that sound? It’s the middle of the night! I move quietly from room to room trying to find the source. It seems to be coming from inside the walls. Tap-tap-tap. I give up and return to my bed. Eyes drift shut. Tap-tap-tap. Awake again. Tap-tap-tap. I fear I might go mad.

#Tap tap tap. I found it & stayed hidden. As quietly as I could, I changed position to get the best view. Waiting for the most opportune moment, I carefully aimed, then shot. In the blink of an eye, it disappeared, but I knew I had captured it. Best red headed woodpecker photo ever. #Spoutories

The raccoon kept #tap -ping at the window, ending their #tender moment. It wanted human #shelter , away from the #sudden #rumble and #bright flashes of the storm. They barricaded the cat door so the terrified animal couldn’t #wriggle through and went back to their snuggles. #Spoutories

After the eclipse, The Obelisks emerged on every continent & the five oceans. Each produces glyphs daily with frighteningly impressive synchronization. Are they messages for us with a time limit to tap into their meaning? Many dread that we're only to be witnesses to what's coming.

They pulled up behind a car with steamed up windows - such a joke to catch couples.
#Tap tap on the driver side with his flashlight. The joke, on him, as the face in the window reached to lip lock him and pass on the alien pathogen. By daybreak, he had infected his partner and family.

In poker, bad money-losing players are referred to as "fish" and a phrase you'll hear is "Don't tap on the glass," i.e., don't scare them off. Holiday Inn Jim was once cursed out for bad play by a regular & we never forgave Mike because we lost our reliable living ATM for a year.

Everything was too hard. The baby was screaming, the stroller wouldn't break down, the bags were everywhere, passports were lost, the dog was whining and probably would have diarrhea (again!)....they were overwhelmed.

The stranger #tapped him on the shoulder. "How can I help?"

He straightened up and dusted the window displays, then went to the back to check the stock. This shop suited him down to the ground. No big-headed middlemen overseeing him, no shoplifters in this small town. Tap-tap-tap on the front door. He smiled. Time to start the day!

“She loved coffee. Though she didn’t drink as much as Voltaire or Lorelai Gilmore, the steady buzz helped her day move faster. That’s probably why she also enjoyed #tap dancing, the rapid-fire dialog of ‘30s movies, and the way actors back then stretched out the word, ‘Say…’”

I followed the drip-dripping sound to the bathroom. A towel was draped over the end of a massive claw-foot tub. Water dribbled from the #tap & I moved to twist it off. The tub was full, water still warm, crimson petals floating on its surface. The only thing missing was the bather.

He'd tried everything. Ignoring it. Starving it out. Digging away the surrounding matter to make it wither and die. But nothing worked. Vexed as he was, her taproot sank deep into his heart, and he couldn't extract it. The choice was to embrace it, or live without all love.

Imagine being labeled #weed , when you're this beautiful.
Let's call them all flowers.

Don't let'em tell you who you are.
The category, the label, the derogative, doesn't define you.

Let's just be #free . #dailypicturetheme

JunHan laid his guitar #flat in its case. It had been an #hour since anyone had come by the station #exit and given money for his music. Thunder #rumbled ; time to find shelter.

He turned at a #tap on his shoulder. It was Jooyeon. He really hadn’t #lied when he said he’d return.

I opened eyes, startled to see blue skies above. I gingerly felt the back of my head & groaned. The spot was painfully #tender . I was shocked to see my hand come back covered in blood and dirt. Wtf happened?! #Spoutories

"Did you ever do something you probably shouldn't've, but it felt kind of...right?"
"Everyone has, I guess." The answer was reassuring. Of course, 'everyone' wasn't dealing with the most conceited, irritating, sympathetic, #tender ...most confusing person in the known universe.

Vociferously #tender
it began, and now is lost.
Pretentious was it?
I don't recall the context
nor the tumult that may have inspired it.
I was lost then
differently than I am now.
Present subjunctive mood,
if I were to find meaning in it,
I'd sink rather than swim,
but fight like hell.
SLS StickFigure @SLS_StickFigure
Back in my teenage angst years I recall beginning a poem with the pretentious phrase "vociferously tender." I was so damn cute in how I thought I was clever. I can't find this atrocity now. Lucky y'all!

Unemotional friends dealing with emotional moments. They sat, they talked, they laughed. They remembered the times when everyone was alive. They prepared to leave and emotion got the best of them. They huddled in a circle and cried. A #tender moment they'll remember forever.

Deals made in the dark never suffer the Truth. He's responsible for more death than they can count, but he's being freed "for the greater good." As escorts shuttle him thru the crowd, one whispers in his ear, "For the tender lives you stole." His body falls 2 rapturous applause.

Touch is torture. When every touch sends searing pain. When each #tender embrace causes bruises, you learn to avoid contact and push back from all expressions of affection and kindness. The bubble is invisible but everyone can see it: unavailable and shut down.

"Ow! Don't pull so hard!" She looked down at her little boy, who was SLOW and she was in a HURRY. "Be easy with me, remember, you always say I'm your tender boy!" Instantly she slowed to a stop and hugged her sweet and, indeed, tender boy.

“The pained wince from the gout in his #tender right foot caught a kindly usher’s attention. A church wheelchair moved him from the back row to beside the front pew. When he rose to his feet at the end of the service, a lady beheld the sight and shouted, ‘It’s a miracle!’”

As the mallet of life hammers upon a #tender heart, will the heart retain its ability to care or will it become hard as protection against the vicissitudes of life? How much can a heart tolerate before empathy is not felt? Is the capacity for loving feelings endless in a tender heart?
