A Name A Day: Celeste

Clever little girl who makes her family laugh 
Eager to learn as much as she can 
Lovable and loves her friends 
Exclusive little girl to love 
Splendid ideas flow through her mind 
Trustworthy to all who respect her 
Encourages others to do their best 

Feel free to participate in A Name A Day. Write a story, poem, or something about a real individual you know with the name of the day. If you have a name that you would like for the blog please send me a message. Please keep it all positive.

This is part of my positivity plan. Allowing others to see their names in print and then stories or poems that are positive about them is reinforcing to adults and children. This is my first time hosting a “challenge” so if you have pointers or need to tell me how to do something differently, please do, I don’t take offense to creative feedback.

Enjoy this! I will post a few random names until people choose to participate and give some names. I will continue as long as people would like to participate. I believe it will be nice for any blogger to share with a friend or family member poems “about them” from so many talented writers. Enjoy!

Sunday Whirl: Wordle #432

Sitting in a coffee shop 

As I sit here in disguise, like a villain being hunted by the hero, I resign myself and decide to stay, tucked in the corner of this coffee shop, hoping to avoid any conversation. And I write, chain smoke, and decide how to rally against the negativity which will envelope me when I go home. I know it will happen. I left in the middle of an argument. I don’t feel any shame though as I know positivity will reign. That is what divides us, the outlook, and how shade on a cold day is the same as shade on a sunny day, both beautiful yet so different. If it weren’t for the words, the way I shoot my mouth off, when I feel I am in the right, there wouldn’t be this separation, this hiding, this avoidance. My wish is that the anger will dissipate and all arguments can turn into conversation.  

Sunday writing prompt: Myths and Love

Galatea and Acis  (the “real” story)

Acis, a minor river god, loved the nymph Galatea. However, the cyclopes Polyphemus [some say the same one who terrorized Odysseus ] also loved the girl. There really was no competition: Acis was young and handsome, Polyphemus large and ugly. Acis and Galatea carried on a secret love affair, but one day Polyphemus heard Acis singing a love song for her and hurled huge rocks at the two. Galatea transformed him into a river and the stones which Polyphemus threw became the Cyclopian Rocks in Sicily. 

Galatea and Acis (my version)

There was a fairy and a fish 
Who loved each other true. 
A beast, he loved her so much more 
as social media knew. 

The cyclops was the ugly beast 
From who the two did hide. 
For in the darkness they did kiss 
When both their cell phones died.  

One day the fairy sang a song 
Which was meant for fish boy. 
Cyclops got mad and threw some stones 
before he did deploy.  

He went to war, or so he thought 
But really he was high. 
He didn’t understand how she could sing 
To some other handsome guy.  

The stones stand now right near the shore 
Of modern Italy 
They both have died but love lives on 
If only digitally.
