Daily Prompts- I would like….

Keep it alive

You know what I would like to see

Politeness become viral, kicking out rudeness

People making provisions for those in need

Throwing greed out by the ear,

Hanging it on the peg on the backdoor

Being thoughtful and kind becoming the new vogue

Being good, considered it’s own reward

No trophy expected for doing the right thing

Ah! me and my wishful thinking!

In response to the following prompts;

YDWP;

Provision

3TC;

Ear, Peg, Trophy

FOWC;

Polite

RDP;

Viral

Word of the day Challenge;

Kick

how did I miss the call

life’s not one size fits all

why I’ve spilled enough ink

no copy/paste no lip sync

my vigor up and gone

it’s the same old song

signs signs everywhere signs

shut the noise in my mind

my ego weeps eternally

A gander at me –
I enjoyed a dedicated career in the insurance industry for over 20 years being rewarded both professionally and personally. Now it’s time for me to follow my dreams by doing things I enjoy…spending time with family, learning, sharing, traveling, writing poetry and encouraging others to pursue their goals. My writing and creative endeavors can be found at my blogs, Eugi’s Causerie (And so it goes…) and PoetryPalette (Poetry, a seasonal state of mind), where…

Eyes Talk

Confab With Me

The hollowness in his eyes didn’t reveal much, but provided a flair of the gravity of his wound
