“Rare is the Blue Rose”

True friendships considered rare

Found, yet seldom appreciated

Search your heart for what they seek

Then spread your love without deceit

A Most Beautiful Witch

‘Tis the season for things to go bump in the night…

Richard M. Ankers - Author

She hid in her house of crumbling brick

Afraid of the daylight, it made her quite sick

Afraid of the noisy, the loud and the brash

Preferring the moonlight and nights soothing sash

Caring for nature in ways we would miss

With eyes like the moon, such sweet silvered bliss

Until come one midnight, we call Halloween

She emerged to the darkness thinking unseen

With me at her coatails, enraptured, you see

By most beautiful witch there ever would be

She climbed to a tor and chanted a rhyme

But I was lost to her powers almost all the time

She turned to me glowing in magical light

And held out her hand, but not as to fright

And there in the darkness she took me to be

Her private familiar, as I didn’t flee

Forever and ever, she said, that’s our lot

And wrapped up in darkness two bats…

White Water

Wonderful use of rhythm drags you in

Random Acts...

Awake and dreaming

inside bended shadows

and used half cigarettes.

I’m sullied and worn

wounded through verse

and battered broken verbs.

I hear the soft swaying tint

of whispered vibrations

across an alright riddle

of a curving culling river

where we meet drenched

within the shallow hole

of our fractured nature.

Show me the watered pain

of bruised, tired depths

and I’ll let you embrace

the tender tide of years.

Give me your dismayed history

and I’ll stream our sonnet

punctuated by blushing blood

and flooding the entanglement

…of our former selves.

A course of rippling routes

swayed by a persuasive compass

guiding us toward the softness

of forgetting and remembering

who we can be with the truth

…of our humbled hands.

Why Am I So Positive?

Wonderfully written and inspiring, please take the time to read.

Dream Big, Dream Often

I had a question posed to me this week: how are you always so positive?  Well the truth is I am not always so positive.  I write a blog that focuses on learning how to transform oneself from an underachiever, non-doer into a person of organization, purpose, plan and action; full of desire and ambition.  It takes a lot of work to remain positive.

The truth is that I am more positive now in life because the alternative is not acceptable.  I will not allow myself to go to the dark side and focus on how crappy life can be, how crappy people can be, how I hate my job, how life just keeps putting it to me.  None of that applies to me.  Why?  Because I choose to ignore the negative, focus only on the positive and work toward goal achievement.

This does not mean I am not aware…

The Cleverness of I

The Mask… For those days we can’t be ourselves.

To the point

The Mask

A coat for the rain
Pills for the pain
Breaths for the stress

A mask for the day ahead
Amongst the living
Despite the dead

One sentence story #16

So much condensed within one sentence. Bravo Jane.

Jane Dougherty Writes

Painting by Arkhip Kuindzhi

They say you took that road, that it leads to paradise, but when I try to follow, it dissolves in rainbow mists about my feet, and a yawning chasm opens at my side where you used to trot.

Thoughtful Thursday

Try a little thoughtfulness

But I Smile Anyway...

Please think about those around you, seriously, not all of us wear our hearts on our sleeves….

You never know what your neighbour might be experiencing, or going through…

Their actions, that might annoy you, could be a defence mechanism, to cover something they are going through…

Be thoughtful, this, and every day…

Have a wonderful Thursday Peeps!

😊
