Happy Dance @ Small Stories and Stuff


This week’s Saturday Centus prompt from Jenny Matlock is, “Oh, say can you see..”  Jenny is cranky this week, so she is taking it out on us lowly Centusians, giving us only 25 words plus the five words in the prompt.  To find out more and learn the rules for this meme, please click on the Saturday Centus button in my sidebar.  You will also find the other entries there, so read them if you can.  And don’t forget to click over the Jenny’s blog, “...off on my tangent...” 


I’m not getting any younger 
but I woke up on the right side
of the grass today    danced a 
little happy jig and sang out loud 
“Hurray.”

Dear cj,
Thank you for your encouraging comment on my SC-post.

Yours is a very nice poem. Yes, I agree with Jeff, it could be sung. I tried it!

Best wishes & hugs,
