Under the Stars

Penny Wilson Writes



The twinkling stars 
shine down on you. 

Do you have a favorite 
you wish upon too? 

Mine is that little one,
I think it might be flawed. 
 
It's the one I watch
when I talk to God.  

My wish for you
on this cool, clear night

That you're showered with 
love and God's guiding light.
 
No matter where you 
roam in this big
world of ours

You'll always be 
under my same 
set of stars.

*I don't often write rhyming poetry. But, the first two 
verses of this one came to me and rhymed so beautifully that I 
just had to make the entire poem rhyme. I hope you enjoyed it.

So Many Changes ~ A Poem By Walt Page, The TennesseePoet

Walt's Writings

Life is full of changes
What was yesterday is gone
What is today will be a memory tomorrow
Changes in us as we age
Changes in our health
In our energy
But no changes in our love
For spouses, family and friends
Leaves start turning
Soon they will start falling
Only to return, renewed in spring
Like death and taxes
Change is inevitable
My life has been 75 years of change
But here I am, still standing
Still writing poetry
Still adapting to recent changes
And still living and loving life

Aesop’s Fables: The Cat And The Mice

Frank Solanki

There was once a hungry cat

Who had lost all of his fat

Several days without a mouse

So he went and found a house

Overrun with big fat mice

He didn’t have to think that twice

He went and ate them one by one

And he had a lot of fun

Then the mice took out a poll

Went and hid inside a hole

Then they didn’t come out at all

The hungry cat then took a call

A genius idea struck his head

He lied down and acted dead

Thinking it would coax the mice

To come out and steal the rice

But the mice had a clever air

They spoke to their foe lying there

“Your evil intents once kicked us

Your innocence now won’t trick us.”

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 241 – Exhausted

But I Smile Anyway...

On an exhausted field, only weeds grow

Henryk Sienkiewicz

Yeah, thanks, Spidey, for likening me to a field…

But, honestly, that is how I feel at the moment.

You all know that I have stepped back from posting regularly because I mentioned being rather tired. I felt that a little mental break would help.

I had submitted my manuscript to a publisher and used that six weeks of waiting to step back from that creativity too.

Unfortunatley, I can’t step away from motherhood, or my day job of being a teacher, but even there, I have tried not to stay later than I have to at school. Usually, I’m in from 7.45am, and I leave betweek 5-5.30pm.

As for home, I have skimped on wheat I can, ironing as and when I need to, keeping the hosue clean and tidy, but not pushing myself too much, and sleeping earlier.

But…
