Whatever goes up, will surely come down;
Like a boomerang, it just all goes around.
You get what you give, or reap what you sow;
If hate’s what you plant, then hate’s what will grow.
If you want to see change; if love’s what you thirst,
Be bold with your kindness…
Dare to go first.
Magnificent Blue Glimpses of wonder at sea Glorious Creatures Word of the Day Challenge: Glimpse
Chaotic workday— a scuffle with friends,
Five o’clock traffic— the stress never ends,
Pressure to do well— fearing failure, too,
Stuck in a pattern— afraid of what’s new,
Plan for retirement— look forward to rest,
Where children once played— is now empty nest,
Dating disasters— a marriage from hell,
Lack of investments— there’s nothing to sell,
No regrets linger— My head’s not for rent,
All of these moments— are evanescent,
March forward, full steam— toward what is unseen,
Faith is eternal— I’m living the dream.
Scarlet red beauty Romance hidden in your scent Love spun by your touch
Beneath plump white down
Luscious colors light my world
Through bewitching eyes
His appearance stirred up anger,
Seeds of hatred had been sewn.
Antipathy grew heavy,
I began tumbling,
From my throne.
There I discovered,
Had been my own!

Gazing through a silky screen

We’re going out in public,
So please put on your mask.
Say “I’m fine” and “thank you,”
If anyone should ask.
I know your thoughts run rampant,
You want to share them all,
But these are not the places;
The grocery store, or mall.
Wait until you’re all alone,
And type them with your hand.
Share them on the blog instead,
Where people understand.
