Recently I began attempting to utilize the speech recognition function of my computer to dictate text.

Daily (w)rite had just posted the A to Z Challenge: Flash Fiction, which included a photograph and a prompt “Lately he had been feeling…”.

This is completely new ground for me, and I was fascinated.

I decided to attempt the project using the Speech Recognition function of my computer.

Behold the results; a story within a story, it would seem…or…you be the judge….

Here is the artwork, by Joseph W. Richardson: (with the prompt: …”lately, he had been feeling…”)

This is the Iron Dragon Project result:

*****

True on and all,

Too true II be true.

This is going to be eight to two attached

and the howl for the old ones who weren’t.

Iron dragons can be humans

who buy in bulk and buy one another.

Lately he’d been feeling

like an imaginary dinosaur

so out of date that he couldn’t even scare

a five-year old girl.

(Let’s face it…

after Pixar,

how you gonna keep ‘em down on the farm

after they’ve seen

Monsters Inc.?)

Thank you.

***

And you and you might be wrong

if you were among the one

that will allow them believe

this can be done to learn more than one,

or the dragon in the garden may be a man…

is he our own only hope

that can help our town?

Take anything on the day

and it still leaves us poor

and unrecognizable

to my original text

(which is pretty good for a Mayan.)

***

Tensions thee into my mission

and an avid listen

to become one with the machine

which

in their words

might become a bump on a node

in their worlds;

a bogey on the radar

or give a madman time to ship,

were she to tell it all.

***

Dick you.

(that was thank-you, btw)

…mad that really only you

have been equally

compensated

and that early on

you’re more on the money

on the back F.U.N. and Y

(“funny”)

than all the rest

that ever were.

***

And so it goes from where it ends.

Hula room deliveries

and buried on an

old fairgrounds

captured

in a faded photograph.

You don’t know how

to interpret the butt of a joke,

meaning something early on

that makes

me so horney….

And let’s let poor

caveman UG alone,

(let alone the UG woman)

and the older elder too

and that old lady who

laughed

when laugh launched luna.

***

Run one thing on

to

try something on

fun fun fun

as a loan on laughter

in a letter that said

fun is dead

and you can’t play on

fun fun fun alone,

but the challenge to him was that this

…this the…

…this Italian leather dealer

in each letter on a letter

adds up.

…the AIM’s not even close…

but this

intention

could have made a difference,

(…but it didn’t.)

***

I’m not having loved all of this and more.

I’m not loving this.

If you would treat me

as an acute writers group

…maybe God already knew…

if so,

then dial me

but

you have no clue.

No one meant that as a car wreck, children.

No…

I was saying that was a correct assumption…

And by her now this is goodbye for now…

Logo and you finally

get right question.

Goodbye?

(Something there is that does not love auto-correct dictation)

PS: with team Damyani’s permission, I intend to reblog her original post, which I found to be quite a hoot in its own (w)right(e).

 

Dragon Loyalty Award…Thank-you Shaun

Posted in Appreciation, Award, Dragon award on March 10, 2014 by dreamlanddancing

dragons-loyalty-awardMy sincerest thanks go to Shaun Gibson for this award

http://prayingforoneday.wordpress.com

He is one of the most consummate bloggers I have read to date, and his range of interests is far-reaching and most informative. I highly recommend visiting his site, and following his posts. He has opened my eyes on more than one occasion.

I would like to recognize a number of writer/reader/friends…to whom I must apologize, I do not comment or correspond to nearly as often as I wish I did.

A few of you may not even know who I am…and that’s OK, because I read your works, and enjoy your posts…sometimes I do not even comment, but several of you have been regular readers, and vice-versa…some I have not heard from in awhile, and you are missed…I understand how life takes the front seat sometimes, even for writers.

I am primarily more of a writer than a true blogger, although I must admit that the liaisons I have formed here have helped me develop and produce in a way that solitary writings (such as “Dancing in Dreamland”) seem almost like a vacuum by comparison.

I received this award in December, right before a series of losses, tragedies, hardships and adversities threatened to completely overrun my life for far too long, and these recognitions are long overdue.

I probably broke a few rules here and there, like too many awards, or not quite the right presentation or format, but more than anything, this is a sort of “Shout Out”…and besides, who of this group would not agree that rules are made to be broken…and bent…(over)…and perhaps even spanked….

Thanks to you all…Baraka Bashad
