The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS June 24/17

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “rain/rein/reign.” Use one, use them all, use them any way you’d like. Have fun!

Thanks Linda.

Coronation Day

Their island might be small, but they could do pomp and ceremony as well as the big guys.
It was a bit of a novelty to have a King reign, no-one living had ever had the privilege as he was the first male monarch for over 200 years.
His subjects (all one hundred and twenty six of them) lined the makeshift street on the way to his coronation.
The newly promoted coachman teased the rein on the island’s only horse as it lead the open topped carriage, a farmer’s cart festooned with wild blossoms.
Looking skyward, he just hoped the rain would hold off as it would probably rust his crown.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
