In Which I Write About Food…

For me, the only thing worse than thinking about food is writing about it. I’m not a foodie. Half the time I wish I didn’t have to bother with eating. What do I want to eat? What will my kids want to eat? How should we be eating? There are times...

I Think I May Be On a Roll…not a Croissant

NaPoWriMo poem Day 5 prompt is an interesting one. Pick a seed name from a seed catalog and write a poem. NaPo’s site linked a couple of online catalogs to choose from but I’ve always purchased seeds from the Michigan Bulb Company. I must admit, I’ve always gotten a kick out...

“April Is The Cruelest Month”

  The Day 4 prompt of National Poetry Writing Month was to write a poem about the cruelest month-what is the cruelest month to you and why? I really gave this a lot of thought because, truly, some months are harder to get through than others some years. And, some people...

I Know, I Know…

I’m really behind. I’m so sorry. We’ve almost completed the move and hope to have the last things out next week. We’ve had very minor snags and everything seems to be going somewhat smoothly, but I will be giddy when this is all over. Packing and unpacking. Trying to make things...

Do You Have A Tardis?

I’m behind already. I knew I would be. You can’t multitask without one of the balls you’re juggling falling at some point. In my case I’ve had two fall. But that’s okay because they aren’t as important as the others and I can easily pick them back up again. I’m behind...

I Fell For It…Again

I am so gullible. Naive even. I truly believed I wouldn’t fall for it, no matter what they did, no matter what they said. But my own nature betrayed me, so now it’s official. I have entered NaPoWriMo’s April Poetry challenge. My house is completely upside down right now. Chez Lunatic...

Conversation To Inspiration

A few days ago I was talking with my second oldest son in the car and somehow the subject of empty promises came up. We were discussing how my generation was raised with parents from a completely different era and how their thought processes worked and how that affected us. One...

Talkin’ ‘Bout Things

  Thing the First: Son 3 finished his homework in record time yesterday: 3 pages in 30 minutes (four if you count math front and back but he only has to do even or odd numbers depending on the day-still…it’s multiplying fractions, ’nuff said). We struggle every day getting him to...

Rediscovered

Funny. Over at Poets On The Page, yesterday’s poetry prompt was to rediscover an abandoned poem and “finish” it. Last year I actually did just that and when I found the poem and it’s revamped self, I sat back and smiled a little. The revamped poem is about rediscovery. So, here...

First Poem For the New Year 19

First Poem For the New Year

We’re five days in on a new year and there’s been an exciting change over at the OctPoWriMo (October Poetry Writing Month) site. They’ve changed their name to Poets on the Page and have begun weekly challenges, an awesome beginning in my opinion. I met so many new friends through my...
