Haha! I like to add th to words. Have you every added th to a conversation. People think you are crazy or channeling your inner Shakespeare.
Anyways, back on topic. Again, I was about to do the Word of the day but it was sophistry. Nothing was coming to mind. So I did a poem based on my feelings instead.
This house needs,
To be spotless and clean.
The floors to glisten,
And surfaces to shimmer.
Shall be seen.
Like a competition;
Desperate for a glimmer,
Will she accept?
Will I receive praise?
Excitement and dread,
I’m adding fuel,
Why does she have this effect?
Master of the gaze,
For the explanation guide.
My in-laws are visiting. This is to describe the first time my mother-in-law visited our house. I went crazy! I’ve now reached the stage of: get the house clean, but don’t stress too much. Instead fill their bellies with delicious food, and put them in food comas! Haha 😂
I am sure every girl who has a mother-in-law understands this poem. We go through so much for the approval; it’s like it is the meaning of survival…
But this visit will be fun. My sweet sweet has her Papa and Nana visiting her. She was so excited, that she started to behave like a puppy when they got to the house. She is so odd; definitely my daughter though.
Enjoy your Sunday! I will be going on vacation. I’ll be trying to post; but I may just enjoy myself instead. We shall see.
I’ve been drawing. It seems like it has taken over my life once again. The poem is inspired by artwork. If you label yourself as an artist you understand, not being able to look away. Wanting to understand everything about the piece.
Recently I’ve decided to redraw my old drawings. As I started, I discovered that my old drawings are from 10 years ago…! (I never throw anything away…)
I now have 10 more years of experience, 10 more years of supplies, 10 more years of patience.
I’ll share the few I’ve done. It’s only been 2 days since I decided to try this…and remember I have a 2 year old. It’s been hard to stop my creative bug; and return back into a responsible mama…
I believe I found this off the internet. I have no recollection of where or by whom…but I am sure it did not look like this.
It’s not too bad. But seeing it makes me wonder why I didn’t measure out a square…or even attempt to make the border straight…
This is my impression of my impression from 10 years ago… I like this one better!
I went all spiffy on it and added the stars detail with paint… because I can. 😎
This picture…I believe the stance of the girl was off the internet, but it was just a black line drawing of the girl. I did all the rest from my imagination.
I must say. I still like this one. It’s inspiring! Embrace life! Be free!
This one is still beautiful, but it seems more… graceful. I’m actually not completely done with this one. I still need to add some details.
In all of this, it has been fun to go back in time and see my old self in my art.
Maybe you should try this too! Dig through the drawers and find a drawing, painting, doodle; and redraw it. Maybe your skills have improved too!
Synonyms: adorableness, allure, attraction, elegance, etc.
I burn for you,
I’ll die for it…
Well maybe not,
But it needs me!
I know you agree.
I feel on fire!
What a pretty hue.
No better fit.
You know it’s true.
We’ll look smokin hot!
Shall I write a decree?
Oh, yes ma’am!
Don’t know really what my topic was. But pretty obvious the path. The allure of something…usually if I get that desperate need of something it is either food or something I will never actually use…
I have so many shoes that spoke to me in the store but never were worn…🥺
Haha! But to be honest when I was writing this…my mind kept thinking of a McDonald’s cheeseburger…those are the best!
I don’t get to eat them often…which I know, is good for me but…sometimes I just want a #7!! 🤣
My baby is asleep on the floor and I’m sitting here thinking about cheeseburgers…it’s going to be a long day…
Have a great Monday!
Think before buying it… say to yourself, “Will I actually wear this?” If the answer is yes, put it in your basket and continue shopping. Then before you go to checkout, ask again, “Will I wear this?” If the answer is still yes, then ask, “What Will the husband say?” Haha 😆
Synonyms: suave, sophisticated, elegant, civilized, etc.
Flash, snap, clap!
Always in the spotlight.
Leaving a large gap,
And constantly grows.
A beautiful sight.
Leaving all inspired.
Color following them;
No matter where they end.
Glisten like a gem.
We can only pretend.
Well this poem took some turns for inspiration as I wrote it. First I was thinking of a poodle… To be exact I thought of the poodle from Oliver and Company.
But then it morphed into celebrities. Which I’m sure, that is what most people will think is my main topic. But then I thought of the celebrities that you could look up to. Role models.
This is just my personal opinion. But I feel like there are only a handful of celebrities that I would actually like to meet, because they seem like genuinely nice people. Sad to say, a lot of people I wish I could have met have all passed away.
But anyways…everyone can label themselves urbane. Because everyone has their own hobby or skill that makes them special.
As I wrote this poem I was really starting to get bugged by the person doing the stealing. Man, they sound like a pain.
But it could be anything. Love, job, life, family, etc. When I first read “take away“ I thought of being the person having it taken away… But then I thought of the person doing the taking away…and went with it.
Hope your Friday is filled with you keeping whatever is yours. HOLD ON TO IT!! Whatever it may be!!
I drew this picture a few years ago. It is one of 5. They tell a story all together. I hope to paint them in the future!
Synonyms: ward off, fend off, deflect, hold off, block
It’s a constant battle,
You are always at war.
They claw and scratch;
Ripping at your soul.
Your insides are rattled,
Chaos to your core.
Ruthlessly they attach;
Fight against them!
Fend them off!
He is on your side.
As they latch on your hem;
Point and scoff.
Don’t allow any squirm.
Help is always provided…
God thrives inside.
Quite obvious the topic choice. After reading the synonyms my first thought was… what lurks in the darkness. They come in many forms; we constantly fight them off. But for me I don’t fear them, because I have the light of God inside of me. Don’t fear because God loves everyone!!
Whenever I think about battling darkness, I think of that intense novel, This Present Darkness, by Frank E. Peretti. I love that book! But a piece of advice…don’t read it at night. I stayed up until 4am when I read it the first time.
Have a strong and faithful day!! ❤️
That’s someone darkness does not want to mess with. You are toast, if you do dare.
Synonyms: confused, bewildered, puzzled, perplexed, baffled, etc.
A word that rhymes,
A phrase that sings.
Does it need to chime?
Should this be here?
And that go there?
This baffling challenge stings.
Unable to express,
I feel the suffocating muzzle,
I no longer know,
And way less aware,
Creating a confusing distress.
Why is it so unclear?
So ironically I wrote a poem, about being unable to write a poem. Haha! I liked this idea. Also I was actually having trouble writing a poem about something baffling to me…so…I decided that would be my topic.
Writing a poem about being unable to write a poem. (I know I pretty much just reiterated what I said previously, but it is so funny to me that I needed to be said again.)
Have a fun, and hopefully a non confusing, baffling day! 🤩
Pretty much what I looked like racking my brain trying to figure out what I was going to write…
