For this week’s Xploration Challenge Reena has encouraged us to: “choose to do any of the following.”:
- Choose at least two words from the above in your piece.
- Guess the theme and use it.
- Use synonyms of two words in case these words do not appeal to you
Or use the theme and/or words in any other manner you like.”
I have chosen the words: “wavelength“; “trance” & “hypnosis“. Below lies my contribution to the prompt, hope ye enjoy the read! 🤞🙏😁📖
ON A DIFFERENT WAVELENGTH
I came into the sitting room
And turned on the radio
I then adjusted the dial
Till it arrived at my favourite station
(That played hits from the 70’s & 80’s)
It was smack bang in the middle of
Video Killed the Radio Star
Blasting out over the stereo
With it’s own thumping hypnotic beat
If was infectious
Or at least I thought so anyways.
It just left my daughter
In a turned off; trance like state
That bored; uninterested sigh
Mumbled “this is rubbish”
Under her breath
And turned off the radio
“Hey” I said
But it was too late
By this stage she had
Plugged her headphones into her I-phone
And turned up the volume
We never were on the same wavelength
Were we love?
