Sand

Roth Poetry

During this time of Covid-19, I have had my down times just like many of you. But, what I find helps more than anything else is to create purpose in my life. Being isolated gives me much time for creativity. It lifts my spirit and brings me joy. This past year I have self-published a hundred page book of poems I have written for my daily blog on Word Press. I also wrote and illustrated a children’s book about Rocky the Owl, and passed it out to friends who have little ones. Now that the days are warmer, I have been painting again. There is not time to sit and wait for the grim reaper. There are things to do that take my mind of the sand in the hour glass!

The sand in the hour glass runs faster at the end

I feel it shifting and settling into that…

JusJoJan January 24- Trigger

Come Read This Inspirational Post!!

Keep it alive

Linda is the host JusJoJan

Circumstances trigger fear and depression

Brokendreams or abandoned hopes all contribute

Giving in seems easy and the natural thing to do

But resisting the pull of dark waters need resolution

Just stand under the cool arch of the majestic sky

And just look up to see how vast is this universe

We are so insignificant here but we all have a role

Like tiny cogs in a huge machine, we all do our job

Let not this wormhole swallow you alive

Listen to the appealing song of life and hold tight

➰➰➰➰➰➰➰

Sunday Poser # 12

Come And Enjoy This Post!!

Keep it alive

Welcome to another Sunday Poser

Nostalgia hits us unawares. Certain songs, smells, or photographs trigger these feelings when we would remember events or people and places of the past with longing.

I feel nostalgic when I hear a song from my younger days. Any favorite which I used to listen to constantly, as young people are prone to do.

The feeling: “Ah those were the days” is mostly tinted with rose-colored memories. We delete the unpleasant things from our past and magnify the good ones.

But it is still enjoyable to take a walk down the memory lane and relive those carefree days in our memory. I am very lucky that I am in touch with most of my childhood friends and we still have the same level of camaraderie with each other. The best kind of nostalgic trips are the ones we take together with our friends. The phrase…

Thursday Inspo # 92 – Flowers

Keep it alive

Paula is the host of Thursday Inspo

Alligator flowers

Welcome to Thursday Inspiration!

This week’s theme isflowersand the image is above. Here’s a snippet of song from Neil Diamond’s “You Don’t Bring Me Flowers.”

You don’t bring me flowers
You don’t sing me love songs
You hardly talk to me anymore
When I come through the door at the end of the day

➰➰➰➰➰➰➰

There was a bunch of wildflowers by the door

Tied with a blue ribbon, no card or name attached

She picked them and held them close to her heart

Every day, without fail these flowers appeared by her door

She could guess it was some who admired her secretly

And though she often tried to find out who it was

All her effort yielded no results, till one day

She caught sight of a man leaving the flowers

It was the homeless guy in the park…

What do you see # 65 – A Roundup

Keep it alive

➰➰➰➰➰➰➰

Here it hangs

The words and the message inside

Unknown and still a mystery

I think of opening it several times a day

But then I will know, and there will be no mystery

So I let it hang here, tantalizing me

Climb, when no one is looking

Loly Rinn

“For the love of God, girl, get down!”

She lost count of how many times someone yelled, “Get down!” She hit the ground running determined to climb mountains. Even if, for the time being, it was only a chair to a table. Practice had to begin; the mountains were waiting. Someday she was going to plant her flag on the highest mountain peak she could climb and tell the world, “I was here!” She was made for adventure.

Now if she could just get a few narrow-minded people out of the way, she’d be home free. And that is exactly when the the secret training began.

She climbed when no one was looking and the world was hers for the taking.
