Traveling forwards and backwards
sideways on good days
through thoughts and dreams
The page is my time machine
spilled words map my journey
to anywhen, anywhere
devising anything
Fueled by imagination
worlds beyond known
and gently back home
What a ride
what a high

A Well-Defined Garden

The Garden Of Secrets by palirox
The Garden Of Secrets by palirox

A Well-Defined Garden

Everyone hides something of themselves
even I, the proverbial open book
Perhaps it’s different things
at different times
in different places
for various reasons,
but of me yet
my secrets are known
Not dumped on one doorstep
just broken down
into precious pieces
carefully planted in the ground
Blossoming seeds of knowledge
for lessons learned
shared or snared
they lie there
in loving memory

2015 April PAD Challenge: Day 2

Mindful Resistance

Resistance by iEsma

Mindful Resistance

Waking up
going to sleep
all the changes in between
crowds of people
surprises unforeseen

highs and lows
forward movement
and Insulin it seems
hot and cold
wet and dry
anything to extremes

Fighting in my head
filled with dread
over silly little things
when even I know
resistance is futile
these winds fuel my wings

Letting go
and saying no
maybe that’s the key
to life, the universe
and everything
what will be, will be

2015 April PAD Challenge: Day 1

April 2015 PAD

It’s almost that time, again!

Can you believe it? Are you ready?

I am and I’m not. Lol. This time of year means it’s time to re-evaluate my goals for 8:01 and maybe give it a shiny new look. It’s also a time of mild anxiety – will I be able to do all 30 days or not? This is pressure I put on myself, that’s all. I hope I have many friends and followers joining in this year, but one in particular (and you know who you are).

[tweet ]

I know, I know – it’s still almost 4 weeks away, but it will be here before you know it. I love to share the announcements! It gets me psyched up. I didn’t finish 30 days last November, but I did 28. That’s more than I have ever done in November, before. April is usually easier for me, perhaps because of  Spring settling in? Anyway, I’m over November, it’s time to move on.

Hehe…hmm…is that a poem brewing? 😉

Anyway, countdown forthcoming!

Wing-Dingin’ It

Wing-Dingin’ It

inside my head
No dress code
Don’t bring anything
except your own
with random words
as you wish
or stir alone
a wallflower
spun from gold
Everyone grows old
weary of effort
planning and
putting on airs
just for musical chairs
We all play
in some way
of charming the ghost
a delightful host
coming to take me away
Just one more dance
Pomp is dashed and played
for youth
as it were
