Sustain: Word of the Day Challenge

Your Future

Can you remember a time 

When you were able to see 

What your future would hold 

How successful you’d get to be? 

When you are able to say 

That you can aptly sustain 

All of the things that you’ve learned 

All of the things in your brain 

You will be a huge success 

You’ll go as far as can go 

You’ll find yourself in the clouds 

Success like the sun will glow.

Caravan: Word of the Day

The Cat in the Hat is back with families….

The cat tries to help

The cat was in line 

With most of the kids 

The parents lined up  

With their ball cap lids. 

They lined up together 

One after one 

Thinking this caravan  

Would be lots of fun 

The animals snarled 

The kids they just yelled 

The parents still marveled  

At how the moon swelled. 

When out of the box 

A boy took a jump 

He thought that he’d ride 

On a camel’s one hump 

But the cat had been there 

Running about 

And he scared that camel 

Who then scampered about 

And his hooves they did wreck 

The sides of the cage 

Everyone got scared 

Everyone of each age 

But the cat he knew better 

And raised up his hands 

“Listen to me 

And stop the horns, the yelling. the bands! 

We must get the camel  

And the zebra there too 

To be gentle creatures 

Gentle to me and to you.  

We must work together 

To calm them both down 

Before we proceed and  

We head out of town.”

Dilatory: Word of the Day Challenge

Written for WOTD: https://wordofthedaychallenge.wordpress.com/2020/09/04/dilatory/

dilatory: slow to act

******I hope I don’t make you all crazy with my Cat in the Hat poetry!******

The Cat Waits

The cat was so sad 

The children were gone 

They had to go out 

To school ‘cause it’s fun. 

He wanted to play 

But was dilatory 

He should’ve been sooner 

And now he’s sorry. 

The cat he decided  

To stay at their home 

He’d wait for the bus 

He’d try not to roam. 

When the kids got to him 

He’d be ready to play 

He’d make sure the toys 

Were hidden away 

From the mom and the dad 

Mom tried cleaning the house 

When the kids were at school 

She worked with her spouse 

But once they get home 

He’ll take out the toys 

They’ll play with them all 

They’re for girls and for boys. 

And once they are done 

The cat goes away 

Back to his own home  

Where he’s gonna stay.

Euphoric: Word of the Day Challenge

Participate here: https://wordofthedaychallenge.wordpress.com/2020/08/30/euphoric/

True Love

I was euphoric when I met you 

Not very happy you had to leave 

Truly delighted when you called me 

I wore my whole heart upon my sleeve 

Now we’re here years later 

As happy as can be 

Our love is wholly pure 

As anyone can see.

Tittynope: Word of the day 25th August

Grandiloquent Word of the Day: Tittynope | learningtogether2012

The King and Queen

Once upon a time ago 

There was a little king 

He had a little wife 

Who would do a little thing. 

She’d pick off all the edges 

Of peanut butter toast 

And leave those for her husband 

Tittynopes she would boast. 

But soon the king got tired 

Of all her little scraps 

He sent her on vacation 

On her butt he left three smacks.

Schmutzwortsuche: Word of the Day

Melanie from sparksfromacombustiblemind https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2020/08/14/word-of-the-day-schmutzwortsuche/
decided this was the word of the day. Well, I had a laugh reading Di’s at pensitivity101; https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2020/08/14/word-of-the-day-schmutzwortsuche-2/

I remember when we were younger, probably around third grade, when we started hearing swear words, we used to look words up in the dictionary to see if they were “real” words or to see what the dictionary said it meant. Some I remember were: shit, ass, and yes, I will admit, penis. Hahaha! Now if you looked that up on the internet you would get a lot more than a definition of the male appendage.

My dad always had a dictionary in the bathroom. He would read a new word every day. I don’t know about you but I go in, do my business, then leave. I can sit anywhere else in the house to read.

So I don’t have anything funny to say about this word, it is one of those words that you hear once and never see again. I will have to post something if I see this word elsewhere in the future!

Grandiloquent: Word of the day challenge

Written for Melanie: https://wordofthedaychallenge.wordpress.com/2020/08/04/grandiloquent/

grandiloquent:

adjective

  1. pompous or extravagant in language, style, or manner, especially in a way that is intended to impress.

How I am

Miss Grandiose they called me 
when I was really young. 
But now that I am older 
my opinions are so strong, 
that if they think I’m tempted 
by only the finer things 
They’re right about my boyfriend 
a grandiloquent human being.
