What Dreams May Come…

What Dreams May Come…

It seems my words may be coming back. I woke up crying from a dream I don’t remember and the first four lines of this in my head. After  ten continuing minutes, and ultimate uselessness in trying to go back to sleep, the grinding gears inside my head refused to shut up, so up I …

In memoriam Heaven is filling up quickly. xo Jesi The Cry of Atlantis By Jesi Scott   We’ve been left standing, bereft, surrounded by galaxies, distant on the horizon.

“April Is The Cruelest Month”

“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 (like AJ) have one …

What Would You Do?

What Would You Do?

Today’s poetry prompt is to write about conquering the world. What if you had no boundaries, nothing counted, and you could do anything you want.

For Pete’s Sake…

Apologies. Yesterday, I was unable to submit anything for the OctPoWriMo prompt because I ended up having to wear an eye patch on an eye which left my other eye for me to see with…and I am apparently blind as a bat with little depth perception in that eye. I think what may have happened …

Life Goes On

Life Goes On

Hello, my Darlings. Life throws you into a spin every now and then, and right now it’s my turn to be thrown off the merry-go-round. The last two weeks have been busier than I wanted them to be and will continue to be busy until after June 6th. There have been band concerts and school …

Face Your Fears by Calling All the Monsters

Face Your Fears by Calling All the Monsters

Hold onto your hats. We are about to have a lot of fun. Today’s prompt is Face Your Fears. I am not a blood and gore fan. Give me the subtle fear. The kind that sneaks up on you, the kind that could be real. But, I love the fun associated with all the scary creatures …

Do Not Open…

Do Not Open…

Sometime between Saturday night and Sunday morning, an envelope appeared on my refrigerator: Do you see what it says? Do not open until my birthday 2015. Now, I know who put this up, and that person has been coming in every night, pointing to it, and saying “make sure you don’t open this until 5/13/2015”. …
