Word Of The Day: Ossify 08-25-21

Synonyms: harden, stiffen, rigidify, etc.

Fighting,

Yelling,

Tears.

The one becomes two.

Hurting,

Shunning,

Glares.

Hate lives in the forefront.

Harding,

Corroding,

Stiffen.

The heart beats for no one.

Accepting,

Trying,

Defeated.

Timing in love is key.

Freeing,

Living,

Peace.

Love yourself first.

Most everyone has experienced his cycle. Unless you were one of the lucky ones and you had your other half from the get go.

The word is ossify. I must be honest I’ve never heard of this word. When I saw the synonyms my first thought of a break up. My first break-up was…wow thirteen years ago. 😳 Haha, but I tried to remember the emotions I felt after. I also asked my hubby; his was about seven years ago…but he was no help; he was trying to be too deep. 😅

My vacation has been exciting but full. I’m enjoying myself, but I’m also taking this chance to catch up on my sleep. Hopefully my sleeping schedule changes from that of a teenager.

Give your other half, or even yourself a hug today. Love is strong in any form. Enjoy your Wednesday! 🌺

Loss of Love Cycle

Him.

Can you guess as you read?

He’s my light,

Forever my future.

His stares,

Cause a deep red hue;

Noticeable even in night.

Our humor,

Sometimes clashes,

Still a perfect pair.

We will get through,

The thick and thin;

Stronger than before.

Fights and pride,

Can diffuse the love;

But once the truce is found,

We blossom again.

Still,

I’m “always” right! (Haha)

He is the provider;

A male dove,

Rising his family,

Above the ground.

He enters,

That great category of men.

Our marriage is a thrill;

It’s a grand sight.

Dedicated to my hubby! I love him. ❤️

Have a great day! 🎉

They Cometh…

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.

Done deeds,

Shall be seen.

Like a competition;

Desperate for a glimmer,

Of approval.

Will she accept?

Will I receive praise?

Excitement and dread,

Battling inside.

I’m adding fuel,

Why does she have this effect?

Master of the gaze,

Carefully tread.

Frantically searching,

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.

Dun dun dunnnnnnnn!

A Piece

Colors bleed,

Mixing and twisting;

Becoming one.

Light defies darkness;

Casting aside,

Into the shadows,

While instead gleams thrive.

Someone is watching you;

Your eyes meet.

Dare to look away?

No…stay.

Question their story,

Push the boundaries;

Enter their fantasy.

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…

09-03-11

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…

08-11-21

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. 😎

Next one…

09-05-11

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!

08-11-21

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!

Enjoy your Thursday! May it be filled with color!

Word Of The Day: Flexuous 08-04-21

Synonyms: bending, crooked, curving, meandering, serpentine, etc.

The start,

Is vast,

Calming cheer,

Peaceful.

Troubles and worries,

Never exist.

Middle…

Constantly fast,

Never care or fear.

Always gleeful,

Twists and turns,

Whatever you please.

Persist.

Life.

Was it all a riddle?

Still living in the past.

Career disappeared.

Body crooked and feeble.

Desires still burns.

But feel the cool breeze.

Resist.

End…

My time has come.

Life stabbed by the knife.

Waddle down the path,

Only to fiddle and twiddle.

Shows great contrast.

My destination cleared.

Direct like a needle.

No returns.

God hear my pleas.

Missed.

I wrote about life. The journey of life has twists, turns, hills, and great falls. That what I thought of when I read the synonyms of flexuous.

Take life one day at a time. You never know what’s around the corner.

Enjoy your Sunday 🌼

Word Of The Day: Pulchritude 08-01-21

Synonyms: adorableness, allure, attraction, elegance, etc.

Please,

True desire;

I burn for you,

I’ll die for it…

Well maybe not,

But it needs me!

The shine,

The glam.

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?

The design…

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 😆

Ooooooo!

Word Of The Day: Expropriate 07-22-21

Synonyms: seize, take away, take over, etc.

No longer yours.

Indefinitely mine.

Try to grasp?

Yank away.

Forever endure.

Did I hear a whine?

Pathetic sap.

Just watch as it decays.

I mock at your distain.

And relish in your pain.

The green eyed monster,

Now clings to you.

Enjoy the view.

Hope your world turns blue.

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!!

Happy Friday!!

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!

Word Of The Day: Parry 07-17-21

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;

Demanding control.

Fight against them!

Fend them off!

Be firm;

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.

Word Of The Day: Nonplus 07-12-21

Synonyms: confused, bewildered, puzzled, perplexed, baffled, etc.

A word that rhymes,

A phrase that sings.

This puzzle…

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,

Quite clear.

I no longer know,

And way less aware,

Creating a confusing distress.

Why is it so unclear?

Nothing flows,

Anymore…

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…

Word Of The Day: Cataract 07-10-21

Synonyms: waterfall, cascade, rapids, torrent, downpour, etc.

Dark blue.

Marks the start,

Of the the chaos.

The sky blue hue,

Means all sanity departs.

The sea foam green,

Shows it’s fits of anger,

Cascading down.

The mix of grey,

Only drifts between.

The white…

Might leave a frown.

But still you stay.

To see if danger,

Entrapped another stranger.

A cascading waterfall is beautiful, but also dangerous. So many colors, but also so many unknowns. It is it’s own beautiful chaos.

Just my thoughts after writing this poem.

Have a great Sunday. 💙
