Judgment: Compilation 6/25/2022

I may be tone-deaf as you say but scrutiny gets you lost
an eponymous pattern for which you see, but really at what cost?
I produce words and phrases here to get me on a route
like mud and reeds go searching in a marsh for land to suit.
The insight that you’ve given me with speed and acuity
reminds me of my childhood friends and what they meant to me.
So here we stop at a junction place where speed defies no one
and think of hent in terms of life but where is all the fun?
Let’s stop and say we are both here for similar success
But I will surely put you down since my writing is the best.

Quiet Zone: Compilation 6/18/2022

I dreamt of a world in a land far away
A rainbow spanned the sky, which impacted my day
A little bitty bird with pink little feet
toiled with the soil looking for a worm to eat
The scent on the air was filled with jasmine and some spice
A current little something, boiled apples would be nice
My mind sent my thoughts awhirl coming from nowhere
A platitude of messages, but I really didn’t care
I was happy with the world, brightness beaming in my eyes
Nothing could be better than those cloud covered skies.
I awoke with a start finding myself all alone
Wishing I was back there now in that quiet zone.

Prompt for #SoCS April 30, 2022

Linda G Hill is the host of Stream of Consciousness Saturday. (I think that is the first time I wrote Consciousness without misspelling it!) Anyhow, find it here: https://lindaghill.com/2022/04/29/the-friday-reminder-and-prompt-for-socs-april-30-2022/

Your prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “zip, zero, zilch.”

At first I am thinking I have zero motivation to put stuff away, now that the kitchen is near completion, but I am quite motivated. Then I’m thinking I have zero energy, also not true. The truth is, I would rather be here, blogging, and then crafting, I am now doing some pottery at home. I brought some clay home to do some hand-building. I am having a ball doing little figures. My last one, a frog holding a drop of water, came out really good!

Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “rest.”

Get Some Rest

What I need now
is time to rest
a time to think
be at my best
There is no doubt
I’m beat way down
Wondering how
to lose my frown
I think that now
I’d get some sleep
Close my eyes
Count some sheep
To reignite
my spark within
And become myself
once again.

The Friday Reminder for #SoCS & #JusJoJan 2022 Daily Prompt – Jan. 8th

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “In the.” Start your post with the words “In the” – that’s the prompt! Enjoy! Find it all here

In the morning
at first light
I recall the day
and last night
my fears of hurt
and source of love
the life I live
the Lord above
I see how lucky
My life can be
if I keep my thoughts
hopeful and free.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday

Linda is the host of SoCS

The prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “opposites.” Use the word “opposites” or write about things that are opposites

So there are some opposites to ponder….

  1. How can standing up and lying down be opposites? Isn’t it more like perpendiculars? Wouldn’t the opposite of standing up be standing upside down?
  2. How can black and white be opposites when black is no color and white is all the colors, or is it the other way around?
  3. Is the top the opposite of the bottom when you look at a ball?
  4. Is “time flying” the opposite of “time standing still”? Then what is “wasting time”? Is there an opposite like “hoarding time”?
  5. When someone says something is open and the opposite is closed, what’s the opposite of only partly open? Partly closed? But isn’t partly open and partly closed the same thing?

Prompt for #SoCS October 23, 2021

Closing the lid
on a past best forgotten
with tendrils
trying to pry open
the covering
which protected
the secrets
needing to be buried
and never
revealed.

because you’ve let me down.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday

Prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “difference.” Whatever the word “difference” conjures first in your mind, write about it. Enjoy! https://lindaghill.com/2021/04/09/the-friday-reminder-and-prompt-for-socs-april-10-2021/

A few months ago
maybe like two
I knew what I wanted
and wanted to do
then all this stuff happened
that made me go blind
into a new world
one like no other kind
A stepmother dying
A dad like a kid
A sister that’s awful
It’s just what she did
and now that my life
has taken this path
I sit in this condo
I take Karma’s wrath
I try all I can
To stay happy and spry
even though my whole life
is passing me by
Some day it will change
and I’ll have my own place
and then you will see
a big smile on my face
