Thursday Photo Prompt-Choices: 1

Keep it alive

The image shows a dawn-kissed landscape with shadowed, snow-covered hills in the distance.


Is what make life a miracle

Gives it beauty and meaning


Is what makes me get up

Each and every morning

This is the hope

Of what my day will be like

If not today than maybe tomorrow

This says to me

Life maybe hard now but there is always

A new day tomorrow, a new sunrise

If it’s the darkness of sorrow today

Come tomorrow and there will be light of joy

Fibbing Friday June 7

Keep it alive

What would Friday be without a chance to do some good-spirited fibbing?

Enjoy today’s questions:

1. Why do cable companies offer so many channels no one watches?

They are catering to the beings from the other worlds.

2. Who invented lemon meringue pies?

Is not was! It’s the next age after Trump is done with us.

5. Why do people grow more annoying as we age?

Their source of patience and good humor is all used up and they haven’t any to spare for the old age.

6. What is doomsday?

No Silver Lining


Image provided by Hélène, of Willow Poetry,  for her challenge: What Do You See?


You were led to believe
all good things come
wrapped in silver
tied up with a bow
as neon billboards
flashed dollar signs
you chased puppy dog tails
registered your names
but there is no silver lining
the packaging faded
the ribbon slipped
through your fingers
you were left holding
an empty box.

#Troiku: The Aroma of Pine

Charmed Chaos

The aroma of pine
wafting on morning air
the scent of fresh hope

And the young morning’s fresh rain
like stars from heaven
glistening on every bough

reach my words
inspired by nature’s beauty
poet’s humble gift

My Troiku for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai #1676 Troiku The Aroma of Pine was inspired from the haiku below.

the aroma of pine
and the young morning’s fresh rain
reach my words
