My Love

The apple of my eye,
The pie in the sky,
My sun when it rains,
My sweet sugar cane.
I never knew  we’d meet,
You’re so awesome, so sweet,
You caught me by surprise
With that twinkle in your eyes.
Now our love has grown,
I no longer feel alone,
you fill my heart with glee
I love that you love me.

Sunday Writing Prompt – Lost – March 21st

Find the prompt here: https://mindlovemiserysmenagerie.wordpress.com/2021/03/21/sunday-writing-prompt-lost-march-21st/

Veva had seen that little dog before. She couldn’t forget him, with his black spotted face and brown belly! “What a silly little dog”, she remembers thinking the first time she saw him. This time he looked sad though. He seemed a little scraggly, like he had been out in the rain all night, maybe sleeping in a mud puddle! Poor baby.

“Come here sweet baby!” she called to the puppy. He looked over at her and started walking slowly in her direction.

She was a little fearful. What if he had some disease or if he was really nippy?

He was a little fearful. What if she tried catching him in one of those net things like the other people did?

With his little head down he walked up to where Veva was standing. He kept his head down, either to be patted or because he was afraid of her. She fell in love immediately with the sweet puppy. She bent down to pat his little spotted head. As soon as she lifted her hand away he looked up at her with the darkest, sweetest eyes. “Do you want to come home with me, little guy?” she asked. He wagged his tail. He didn’t know where he had come from but this was the first time that he felt like he knew where he was going; home!

Writing Class

Whether a shirt or pants or shoe

A note, a letter, even a clue

A word in English class is here

An article full of meaning clear

Do you know what word I mean?

Can it be a sight unseen? 

A thing to know when writing well

For me the word came quick but fell.

RDP-SUNDAY- BLANKET

FInd the info here: https://ragtagcommunity.wordpress.com/2021/03/07/rdp-sunday-blanket/

Waiting

Like a blanket of snow

Laying upon the frozen ground

During the early morning 

No movement nor a sound

Asleep for time unknown

Beneath a frosty sheath

Waiting for the spring

The life waits underneath.

Sunday Writing Prompt – In the Thick of It – March 7th

Find the prompt here: https://mindlovemiserysmenagerie.wordpress.com/2021/03/07/sunday-writing-prompt-in-the-thick-of-it-march-7th/

Jetta wanted to turn and walk away but knew better than to think it was that easy. She was in the thick of it and regretted the day she asked Natalie if she could move in. Natalie was nothing but drama and Jetta knew it but she hadn’t been thinking straight, she had only been thinking that she had to get out. Danny was abusive and she couldn’t take it any longer. No one seemed to believe her. Even some of her closest friends thought she was exaggerating or making Danny out to be worse than he really was. Jetta wished she was only making up stories of abuse.

So now, instead of Danny’s abuse she was intricately entangled in Natalie’s addiction. Jetta didn’t know which was worse? Thinking back to the day her parents asked her when she was moving out, Jetta felt some resentment that she was asked to leave without them knowing she had nowhere healthy to go. Her life was getting deeper and deeper into chaos than she ever thought possible. Jetta began to have doubts that she would survive the next six months, knowing Natalie was going to have to give up her lease for lack of payment. She felt herself slipping into a darkness that scared her more than Danny’s abuse and Natalie’s addiction ever could.

PROMPT WORD: RODEO

___________________________________________________________________________________

Marcus knew his plans to take Billy to the rodeo were solid and it would be a great day with his son.
He had everything prepared and the only thing left to do was pick Billy up at his mother’s house.
After the flawless pick-up, the two were on their way to the rodeo at the old arena downtown.
Billy loved the time with his dad and knew the rodeo was going to be a great place to go.
Unfortunately, Marcus spent most of the time looking for Billy who got lost in the shuffle at the entry gates.
He had never felt this kind of fear in his life; luckily Billy was a bright kid and knew to sit in one place until he was found.

Weekend Writing Prompt #197 – Call

Check out Sammi’s site: https://sammiscribbles.wordpress.com/2021/02/20/weekend-writing-prompt-197-call/

When you get there

When you arrive
Place a call
Wait for an answer
Wait for the fall
Sit down and ponder
What happens next
Turn off your volume
Send your last text
Sit for a minute
Sweat it all out
Waiting is torture
Its what life’s about

Your words are:

  1. change
  2. effect
  3. skip
  4. betray
  5. wonder

Reality

In a world of such diversity

Its hard to explore the aftermath

When time seems to ricochet

Between the past and the future

When all you can do is speculate

How life may mislead you

In the present.

I often find topics ironically fitting for life’s happenings.

Everyone will have their time

The end of the road is now coming
prepared you may be, or maybe not.
there’s no way to stop it or start it
it puts your life right on the spot
to figure what else you must do here
before it’s your time for farewell
Answer the unanswered questions
for there in your mind they still dwell
think of the things left to do here
and all of the things that you’ve done
don’t cry for the ones who are left there
For you a new beginning’s begun.

The Sunday Whirl

To join in the fun go to: https://sundaywhirl.wordpress.com/2021/01/23/wordle-492/

It’s a vicious mix of drink 
No justice til you’re done 
Say cheers to those who think 
You’ll never be the one. 

It settles in your gut 
even when you sway and weave 
You climb down off your shelf 
you brush dust off your sleeve. 

It’s a line of chain events 
which tell you who’s the boss 
stuck in a sticky web 
you’re surely meant for loss. 

So you send a friendly wave 
and call to those nearby 
In a month or two 
They won’t remember you didn’t try.
