Sunday Poser # 63

Welcome back to another Sunday Poser

Sadje is the host!

Well, the best answer would be to complete my blogging schedule on the days they are scheduled for! Hahaha! A day late is better than never…..

It’s not so much that I forget the same thing on a regular basis but what I do forget is to write myself notes because I always forget to remind myself of stuff. For example, I have crazy weird dreams sometimes. I have been meaning to put a notepad by the bed so that I can write down the names of the people I dream about. I mean the other night I had a dream about one of my close friends and her mother. I don’t even remember thinking about her per say recently. But often people from my past pop into my dreams and I am surprised that they were part of my dream. I just thought it would be neat to keep track of the people over a longer length of time. Strange, I know but….

Right outside my bedroom

A cloud goes flying by

It doesn’t even stop here

It doesn’t see my blues cry

It goes right past the raven

With wings so black like rocks

It flows with trepidation

Fisted hands on a cuckoo clock

It tries to speak a language

That anyone can hear

To tell you how to live your life

what to eat and what to wear

But like clouds must keep moving

In a circle around the globe

This story blends some fables

Some young and some are old

So slide on out your window

And reach out far and wide

The clouds just keep on coming

Like a friend right by my side.

A New Day

From my window I could see the water lapping upon the shore, hear the surf hitting the land, smell the salty water. I was here to relax, to enjoy time by myself, to take time to reflect upon the last year that held so many feelings and memories. So I sat. I watched the water move by itself. I thought of all the days I have lived, the people who I have loved, and the things I have done. There is some regret and some sadness but today is the day I will open my eyes to a new beginning.

Three Things Challenge #843

Hosted by Di! https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2022/01/14/three-things-challenge-843/

Your final three words for this week are:
ENTER
EXIST
EXPIRE

Hope

Once upon a time I existed
in a world where there never saw pain
but now in the life that I’m living
I refuse to live life feeling vain
Instead I love the world all around me
I enter with a curious mind
Life can expire so quickly
I enjoy every last minute I find.

New Book: The Last Cowboy (Historical Fiction)

Welcome to the book tour for historical fiction novel, The Last Cowboy by Han Herrman. Read on for more details and a chance to win a $25 Amazon e-gift card!

The Last Cowboy

Publication Date: November 7th, 2021

Genre: Historical Fiction

As the romanticized period of the American “wild” West wound down, most cowboys rode off into the sunset. Hank Miller must follow a different path. In The Last Cowboy, he survives the Civil War, Texas sized desperados, and the great San Francisco earthquake. With a debt to pay, Hank will place himself and his twin sons in great danger in a new, wild and untamed frontier—Morocco!

This is a sweeping tale of a reluctant hero of the West. It is also a story of romance and international adventure, stretching from west Texas to San Francisco, Chicago, New York, London, Tangier and the Moroccan Rif. The novel spans an equally expansive time frame: 1860 to 1912. The backdrop is the American frontier with all its enduring myths and troubling realities.

Ultimately, his heroism earns Hank unexpected wealth, friends on three continents, and the love of an extraordinary woman. Now ensconced in a mansion in the most exclusive neighborhood of San Francisco, Hank has a beautiful wife and three remarkable children. He wants nothing more than to enjoy them all and the highly successful international tour business he and Beth now operate. But a last, perilous mission awaits. Hank has a debt to pay and a friend to rescue in a far off land.

Simply 6 Minutes — The Haunting

Sad and scary too.

This, That, and The Other

Why do you haunt me?
I see your face everywhere I go
In the clouds above
In puddles on the ground
In the branches of leafless trees
Reflected in the windows of homes I pass

I see your face in the sunrise
I see it in the sunset
At night when I close my eyes
And in the morning when I first wake up
I can’t undo what I’ve done to you
I can’t bring you back to life

But I can’t live with you haunting me
Seeing your face everywhere I go
The only way to escape the agony
Of these unbearable feelings of guilt
And to stop these visions of your face
Before me from every place I go

Is to join you, wherever you are
Because you are everywhere I am

Three Things Challenge #841

Di is the host of Three Things!

Your three words today are:
CRAFT
COUSIN
CRASH

It wasn’t anything
newer than before
my cousin just arrived
standing at my door
she had a magic bag
that hung from up her arm
she crafted it with fabric
some string and then some yarn
she said she needed help
a place for her to crash
her husband kicked her out
it was her nasty rash.

Five Things Tuesday 11th January

Find it here at Salted Caramel

I know I am a day late but I really wanted to add to this! Sort of like the Monday Peeve!

Today I ask you to name 5 things that you wish would disappear from the world in 2022. Here’s my list :

  1. COVID and all its derivatives
  2. Donald Trump and all of his cronies
  3. Inflation and unemployment: you can’t walk in to any establishment and ask for a job, then get one. Now it is the “initial interview” then the second interview with “the hiring manager”. Next is the interview with “the panel”…then you don’t get the job because they filled it already. What a waste of time!
  4. Spiders that can be seen by a person: Yes, they are good for the environment, they are harmless, they eat bugs…I can’t look at them and recently the nightmares have come back…
  5. New food variations: I am so tired of going to the store and you can no longer find a candy bar like the old days – now they have candy hidden in them or pretzels! I saw a Reese’s the other day with potato chips! Wtf! Put a reeses on top of a chip and bite…there you go, they don’t need to manufacture it! Chips! Are there any regular chip flavored chips? A good old Coca Cola….not vanilla or orange, not diet with energy…Normal stuff!
