A full life not yet lived

The Journey of My Left Foot (whilst remembering my son)

Monday 4th March


Grief is invisible

And I may look okay

But inside my head

There’s pain and dismay


Oftentimes smiling

Happiness to display

Trying really hard

To keep the tears at bay


My precious sweet Angel

You were taken away

A full life not yet lived

I just wish you could stay


Love you forever

Not Even Boring

Eyes + Words

Written by Jacob Ibrag

You’re beginning to bore me, and you’re

not even boring. It’s just that you used to be this

shiny thing. I’d hold you up to the sun and watch you

shine on me. And now its become too familiar. And now

we’ve become routine. You’re the same as the one from

before, and the one before that. I’ve heard all of

your words, in this soul and the next.

Life Answered

Life answered in the simplest ways, abundant

the velvety richness of the chocolate bundt cake
garnished with hand-whipped cream
and raspberries
baked for a great aunt’s birthday
by a daughter
watching a daughter, she knows as mom,
care for her grandmother
who is fighting to be able
to eat chocolate bundt cake together next year
and the year after

Life answered…

in the soft petals of flowers
in the persistent rubs of a loving cat
in the weight of feet of snow removed
with the orange-scooped shovel
by the strapping son, too soon a man
in the margins edged with ink and lace
in the intoxicating rhythm of the hang drums
ringing from the mountainside
in songs shared, life’s playlist, revealing
inside, by the fire, glass of wine and book in hand
pleasures so simple
even Henry Miller could not complain
in NCAA basketball games won, or lost
it doesn’t…

Chivalry is not Dead ~ #poetry #WOTD #RDP #DWP

Night Owl Poetry - Dorinda Duclos

If we were to speculate that, indeed, chivalry is dead

We could become dull, monotonous, and quite unseeing

Perhaps, if we didn’t carry such silly thoughts in our head

We would choose, to pay heed, to our own life’s well being

Word of the Day – Monotonous
Ragtag Daily Prompt – Speculate
Daily Word Prompt – Chivalry
