A Silly Mistake: Compilation 11/06/2022

At the end of the hall of the building I owned

Was a big open window and a playground disowned.

In spite of it all, I was stunned by the site

Of a newly grown willow leaning ‘way from the light

I sucked in a breath as I guarded my eyes

Fearing bites of an insect or the no-see-um flies

For a moment I thought it was a hallucination

Or maybe a high from my pot solution

I focused real hard and decided to go

Down the kind of tall stairway, I’d have to trust my ego

I let down my guard and descended the stairs

Like driving downhill where nobody cares

When I got to the tree I saw you and sighed

You said “Forgive yourself now” but I wanted to hide

Now I felt so embarrassed the tree’s lit by a lamp

And I laughed at my mistake till my cheeks were all damp.

Welcome back to another Sunday Poser

I usually mention other bloggers in my post if it was something I came across just by viewing their post. Since I know who hosts many of the challenges and prompts I do mention the blogger as a pingback. I wonder if that is enough?!! I definitely do if I reblog something that has nothing to do with my writing or work.

Song Lyric Sunday 11/06/2022

This week the theme is to find songs from artists who have famous musician parents, suggested by Paula of Light Motifs II. Join Jim here

Enrique Iglesias


FATHER: Julio Iglesias

The son of one of the world’s top-selling recording artists has gone on to sell more than 70 million records and to place 27 No. 1 singles on Billboard’s Hot Latin Tracks chart. Enrique has had mainstream success as well, with five Top-5 singles, two No. 1 singles and a Grammy Award.

I absolutely LOVE this song – ALL versions!

Cellpic Sunday — 11/6/22

John Steiner, the blogger behind Journeys With Johnbo, has this prompt he calls Cellpic Sunday in which he asks us to post a photo that was taken with a cellphone, tablet, or another mobile device.

The Pod Tree

I have to look it up but this tree has the biggest pods I’ve ever seen! I wish they had pea pods this big…fresh peas are delicious!

Update:

I found this article and although it is from 2015 I do recognize the red flowers, so I think it is the same tree. The only reason I remember the flowers is that I thought they looked like Alstromeria, which is one of my favorite flowers. https://davesgarden.com/guides/articles/flamboyant-tree-the-flamenco-dancers-of-the-tree-world

Simply Six Minutes: My Guardian Dear

Late to reblog John’s take on the photo and the thoughts it inspired! Sorry for the delay, John

The Sound of One Hand Typing

My sporadic participation in Simply Six Minutes comes largely as a result of my not being much of a fiction person, but I took a second look at this week’s picture and it made me think of something I learned when I was young.

I know many of you are sitting there thinking, “geez, he says he doesn’t like fiction, and now he hits us with this nonsense!” The thing is, I don’t see it as fiction. I grew up believing in angels, particularly guardian angels, and forgot about them for a while, then I read Andrew Greeley’s Angel Fire

Someone to watch over me? Sean Seamus Desmond, newly-announced Nobel Prize winner, relishes the unknowns of science, but a real-life mystery of love and passion. . . in the form of a beautiful woman who says she’s his guardian angel? Impossible. Yet there in his New York hotel room…
