A Letter A Week: M – Holy Mole-y!

Nope, Not Pam hosts A Letter A Week. Join in here: https://nopenotpam.com/2022/06/26/a-letter-a-week-m/comment-page-1/#comment-12188

My words: place – monastery, emotion – mad, adjective – magnificent, verb – met, animal – mole

A mole in a hole is a normal event
but a rodent who prays is not
I met a magnificent mole today
and oh, what a shock I got!
She lives all alone in a bedroom for one
in a monastery up on a hill
She never gets mad and has lots of friends
And cools pies on her small window sill.

New Pottery Pieces

I started making more miniature vases and have finally gotten to make the flowers out of Polymer clay. I have also made other new pottery pieces.

I have one new piece coming that I am really excited about, one I will probably be selling on my Etsy shop. I will also have the miniature vases with clay flowers on my Etsy store.

Song Lyric Sunday

This week the theme is songs that are Hidden Gems, which are great songs that missed the top of the charts suggested by Amy aka E.M.  This could be any song that you feel should have performed better on the charts.https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2022/06/25/missed-it-by-that-much-2/

So, I am a 70’s fan and this is my pick. I found it from a list on THE 100 MOST LOST SONGS OF THE 1970S

Lyrics

I met her on a Monday and my heart stood still
Da doo ron ron ron, da doo ron ron ron
Someboy told me that her name was Jill
Da doo ron ron ron, da doo ron ron ron

Yes, my heart stood still
Yes, her name was Jill
And when I walked her home
Da doo ron ron ron, da doo ron ron ron

I knew what she was thinkin’ when she caught my eye
Da doo ron ron ron, da doo ron ron ron
I looked so quiet but my oh my
Da doo ron ron ron, da doo ron ron ron

Yes, she caught my eye
Yes, but my oh my
And when I walked her home
Da doo ron ron ron, da doo ron ron ron

Well, I picked her up at seven and she looked so fine
Da doo ron ron ron, da doo ron ron ron
Someday soon I’m gonna make her mine
Da doo ron ron ron, da doo ron ron ron

Yes, she looked so fine
Yes, I’ll make her mine
And when I walked her home
Da doo ron ron ron, da doo ron ron ron
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Da doo ron ron ron, da doo ron ron ron
(Repeat & fade)

Judgment: Compilation 6/25/2022

I may be tone-deaf as you say but scrutiny gets you lost
an eponymous pattern for which you see, but really at what cost?
I produce words and phrases here to get me on a route
like mud and reeds go searching in a marsh for land to suit.
The insight that you’ve given me with speed and acuity
reminds me of my childhood friends and what they meant to me.
So here we stop at a junction place where speed defies no one
and think of hent in terms of life but where is all the fun?
Let’s stop and say we are both here for similar success
But I will surely put you down since my writing is the best.

Look What I Found!: Compilation 6/24/2022

I tried to write something for the prompts yesterday but nothing was coming to me, so I closed the computer lid and walked away. I came back today with a fresh set of hands and eyes and this is what I got!?

Plane – Image by KL Caley

Can you picture a person in the fresh open air
looking up at a plane and you follow their stare
It’s a plane on a stick and the stick in the ground
My head is now spinning around and around.
The essence of pleasure has been taken away
It takes one to know one, is what they all say
But whether indigenous or found far from here
My investigation is becoming quite clear
There’s a scroll at the base with a tiny rosette
I barely could take notice of words that were set
on the thin little paper rolled up with a bow
What it might say, I don’t really know.
My endeavor is over, my looking is done
This plane won’t fly far, it’s just there for fun
I envisage myself walking quickly away
But I might come to check this some other day.

Simply 6 Minutes – She’s Taking It Back

About the Jez of It

Inspired by and written for Simply 6 Minutes – thank you, Christine

As a biker maybe I should be shocked and horrified, but the bike, albeit a tad rusty and in need of some TLC, is not damaged so I figure this is not a crash site. The truth is I love the power of nature this image creates so challenge on a sonnet in 6 minutes. Here goes

She’s Taking It Back
Form: 13 Line Sonnet — abab cdcd efef g

We think we own it and are in control
Our modern thinking setting all the rules
Money and more money the only goal
And love is sold for the sparkling jewels
Nature has lost because we have her bound
Restricted to what we want her to do
But she’s working her wisdom underground
Ignoring her warnings where fierce winds blew
Dumping our trash that we don’t…

Trying Today: I will succeed

For Today’s Poetics, I want you all to think along the lines of Peer Pressure. 

How does it make you feel? What are your views on it? Slice it, dice it, pepper it with everything that you have got and write a new poem.
From d’Verse Poet’s Pub:
https://dversepoets.com/2022/06/21/poetics-when-it-comes-to-peer-pressure/

It may not appear that I think you are right
or that I am wrong at any old time
It’s just that I feel your presence hanging around
Why do you get to me? Why do I bend?
I know your influences are not in my interest
yet I don’t know what this will give you.
Do you wish to see me fail?
Do you wish to prove a point?
Is it my curiosity to see what will happen in the end?
I live each day, knowing who cares for me
and who doesn’t
and yet I look for your call
your interference
your input
despite
the misery it all brings.

I’m told to move on
I’m told that you are poison
But the pain of loss is stronger
The questions louder
The answers nonexistent

Today I will live without thoughts of you
and what you don’t like about me
and all that I do.
Today I will live without hearing your negativity
enveloping the being I am.
Today I will make the effort to put the past behind
To realize the present isn’t what I had wished for
But that I am better off without you.

Simply Six Minutes

The Bag Lady

***

Julie decided she would make her point to Sam the only way he just might, miracle withstanding, understand what she was saying. After a five year live-together relationship, she still felt empty. She went over the “should have” thoughts in her ever depressing mind. She should have set an ultimatum earlier. Two years was her thinking at the time but now, three years later to still not have a feeling of permanence? What did Sam want and why was he always suddenly too busy when she tried to talk about it? Enough is enough she thought and maybe he needed a visual aid. Thus the doctored photo of her in the meadow.
