Wordle #302: Snow Day!

Join in here: https://mindlovemiserysmenagerie.wordpress.com/2022/12/26/wordle-302/

The winter solstice crept upon
The world where darkness fell
Like snowflakes on a pane of glass
They spread, their ice arms swell
Contrary to the thoughts of old
That snow had tremulous fate
We’d fly down hills across the land
No channel came too late
With absolutely painted skies
A catalog of life
We say goodbye to pain and tears
we recline away from strife
Then falling closer to the ground
Our activity delights
We gather up our toys and sleds
And end with the days lights

Sitting and Waiting: Compilation 12/26/2022

They sat in the back of the old pickup truck
the situation framing their fate
With tireless views and a bit of good luck
Neither bothered to fret at the wait.
They had taken their pills, vitamins for good health
with a mug of hot coffee in hand
The morning brought thoughts anew full of wealth
adoring merry, sweet sights ‘cross the land

“A writer never has a vacation. For a writer life consists of either writing or thinking about writing. “

I think that if this quote is taken at face value then writing is essentially a job. I don’t always see it that way. There are times when I wake and after walking the dog think about how I “have to get to my blog”. I like the routine and I look forward to seeing what my blogging friends are up to. I also like that I am practicing my writing, that I will be presented with new challenges, and that I can share what I love.
On the other hand, I enjoy writing for what I get from it, purely just a feeling of accomplishment that I have written something that I can share. It isn’t always something for someone to say they love and it isn’t always something that has to give someone information, it is just doing something for fun.

I think that people who like to write think about writing all the time because life is the “idea generator”. Experiences and happenings are the plot lines we’ve all been waiting to develop. For people who don’t like to write, I don’t think they think about how everything they do can be “a story” or “a poem”. So, never having a vacation could be true because I know that I am always thinking of how someone or something I just saw could make a good story.

The Sunday Whirl: Monday’s version!

With the holidays I haven’t done much writing so I will take this time to catch up. Join in here if you’d like: https://sundaywhirl.wordpress.com/2022/12/25/wordle-584/

star scan body dust follow grow stroke stony moonshine goddess song slip

Sitting under the moonshine the goddess strokes the lean body of her cat
Her gaze following a shooting star while a soft song grows out of her soft lips
She sings of the forest and all of its men who are stony and stoic and cold
Dust slips through the cracks in the canopy and she scans the sky for a sign. 

Share Your World 26th December

Welcome to the last Share Your World of 2022. Thoughts as always are of Melanie and how she is sadly missed by so many. https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2022/12/26/share-your-world-26th-december/

1.   If you have been given a variety of gifts, do you have a clear out of older stuff to make room for it? Usually if I get new gifts they are to supplement things I already have and use. There are times in the past where I have had to move old things out to make room for the new just because I don’t have the room!

2.  Do you overindulge with food for special occasions and then come to regret it with either weight gain, guilt or severe indigestion? This year has been the worst for overindulgence. I made many batches of Christmas cookies this year and of course cheesecake for dessert! I have to do a serious sugar-detox soon. I guess I sort of regret it but sort of think, “oh well, that’s life”

3.  What is your favourite part for any celebration? Sitting with people and talking

4.   Are you looking forward to getting bargains in the January Sales? Not this year. I have everything I could ask for and more and do NOT need anything else!

Gratitude: I’m grateful that even when I am feeling down I still realize how lucky I am to have all that is mine!
