I Lost It

I got the idea for this post from dear Mama Kat. I know it is not Thursday yet, but I am posting this today anyway. Because, I can. Right? So, I chose number four on her list this week. 4.) The last thing you lost. If you want to get some inspiration from the ever…

She Talks, And You Listen!

1.) Write a poem inspired by the last conversation you had with your child. This is the prompt I have chosen today from Mama Kat. I am SO thankful for her!! She helps make Thursday writing easier, and thus helps shape up the whole week! She’s hilarious, too! If you haven’t checked her out yet,…

BIG Joy in the LITTLE Things

2.) Write a poem inspired by a picture you took last week. Share both! This is the prompt I chose today from Mama Kat’s workshop. See the joy on her face, and the pride and curiosity on his face. This picture was taken last week during my beach vacation. My Mother and Sister-in-law had gone…

Mommy

So, I just didn’t know what to write about. I kind of didn’t want to blog at all, but I figured I should try to stay on that horse. Because you know when you fall off, it becomes increasingly more difficult to get back on…Anyway. Suffice it to say I was at a loss. So…

I Will Overcome

There is a group called Celebrating Recovery, and sometimes I think I should join that group. Today is one of those days! I am in the midst of the longest string of *good* days that I have had in THREE YEARS! What has caused it? God. Definitely. Our move. Most certainly. An increased dosage of…

HOPE

In this time of great turmoil and loss, my hope is strong for the people of Japan. I hope that they will find rest, peace, and most of all – hope as they struggle for survival among great loss, devastation and seeming hopelessness. For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His…

Haiku on MOVING

Moving is not fun. Packing boxes is the worst. I’m pulling my hair out. But then you unpack, and that could be much, much worse. Will it all fit in?

Wonder

1. I wonder as I wander As I go through this life I wonder many different sorts things. Like, when will the cleaning fairy come, or who will finish this laundry, or how will we pack all this stuff, or most of all – will I ever feel good. 2. Wonder Woman There are days…

Villanelle – Yep, I did it!

This is my first attempt at writing a villanelle. Please be gentle. It is also my first attempt at writing for one of Mama Kat’s writing prompts. The prompt was for a description of childhood depression. But, I wasn’t depressed when I was a child, so I’m modifying it to write about what depression is…

SHE IS A WONDER

A wonder running about on staccato feet. A wonder who says, “Sit down now, Mama.” A wonder who snuggles up to Daddy and pushes Mama away. A wonder who I stare at wondering if she is, indeed, real? Not a dream? A wonder who is mine all mine and oh so beautiful with big eyes…

I am, indeed, Thankful for my…

Messy House (with apologies to Shel Silverstein)

This is for my mother. She mentioned yesterday that she loves to read my poetry. So, as I was sitting here trying to decide what to blog about today, I read my friend, Kelly’s latest blog. That’s is when I decided to write a new poem of my own. Here’s my effort (Thanks, Mom): Messy…
