Horrid nightmares!

Hello all of you lovely bloggers!
Well its 2:15 AM here in ireland, and I am wide awake, since I had an awful nightmare, about someone chasing me to kill me! I hate nightmares!
😦
But I don’t know anyone who likes them?
❀
So now I am awake and will make a cup of tea after I let my dog out!
πŸ˜€
My dog wasn't even with me when I jumped out of bed! He was asleep in his own bed, normally he's on my bed, snuggled up beside me!
πŸ™‚
Love that boy to pieces!

Now that I am up, I don't know what to do with myself! Anyone got any suggestions?
πŸ˜€
Well I'll write a little about how I am feeling, I suppose!

night terror
really scary
scared me half to death
when I awake
I jump out of my skin
and hope
I don't have to do it all soon, again.

Good night all!

My favourite dress

A prompt from bee which I got, and am going to write on today is, my favourite dress. So here is a little poem about that very thing!

light, and very summery
long and flowy
oh how I love it
cool breeze whips it
making it spread outwards
making me blush
because there are others around me
do they really need to see me flushed?
still though
Oh how I love that dress
Summer sun
Summer fun
Me in that long flowy dress
Happy as can be.

I hear your call?

Bees prompt for me this week is, I hear your call! So well, here goes, heres my attempt at a poem using this prompt!

Tweet, tweet
as I sit
In the early morning hours
Tapping on my laptop
There you are
Outside my windows
Pretty birds
I hear your call!

Sing me a song of longing?

This week, Bee challenged me to write a poem using the prompt sing me a song of longing. So I shall try, not sure how good it will be, not really feeling the creative streak at the moment.

sing me a song
a song
as I long
for warmer days
brighter times
peaceful nights
I long in my heart
for all that is calm
sing me a song of longing
a song which brings joy
to my heart and mind
just sing, sing
sing me a song of longing…

Bee’s poetry prompt for Carol anne, the day I met Nitro

Bee has given me this awesome prompt to write on for this week, the prompt is, the day I met Nitro!
For those who don’t already know, Nitro is my guide dog!
πŸ˜€
So here goes!

The day I met you
The day you bounced into my life and my world
Was October 26th 2012
You were turning 2 years old the day before
I bought you a badge to hang around your neck
It said worlds best birthday boy on it
You melted my heart
You were so cute
The way you hold your lead in your mouth
Telling me you want to go for a walk
Your waggly tail
Your soulful eyes
Your warm fur as I rub it gently
Makes me feel so amazing
The day I met you
Is a day I will cherish
Forever

In memory of Catherine, forever in my heart

Such a kind soul
Gentle, caring
Always had A positive attitude
No matter
How sick you were
You always wished me
A happy weekend
You always told me to be safe
enjoy myself, have fun
You even showed concern
For my mom,
Who had the same thing you had
COPD
You never gave up
Or gave in to your illness
You fought hard
Until the very end
Oh how I’ll miss you Catherine
Even though your no longer here
I will always think of you
You will always be in my heart
Forever, and always
With love

carol anne

Carol annes poetry prompt for this week!

Bee set me a wonderful prompt for this week!

In the grounds of longing, the young ones rejoice

Isnt that awesome!
πŸ˜€

So I decided to give it a go! So here goes my attempt at a poem using it!

Emotions
they fly
flying so high
and in the grounds of longing
the young ones rejoice
rejoice in the joy
of Christmas time
which is near
never fear my sweet little ones
this year
we’ll have fun
so so much fun
we’ll craft and create
eat our fill
open presents
watch childrens tv
and rejoice
in the peace and quiet
where the longing will grow
but never fear
I will make all of your wishes come true
look to me my sweet little ones
look to me
and that longing
to be kids
never lose that longing
for it is you my sweet kids
that make me complete

Carol annes poetry challenge from the Bee…

This week, Bee gave me this prompt to write on.

My thoughts wander to…

It took a little bit of thinking, on my part, but now, here it is, finally!
❀

sitting, thinking
my thoughts wander to
to what?
to so many things
its hard to put down
in a poem
just one thing
so on reflection
I am going to try
to empty my foggy brain
of wandering thoughts
so, here I go…
I think about today being thanksgiving
Thinking about all I am thankful for
I think about my therapy process
Where are we going?
What will we work through in our next session
I think about my weight loss
All I have accomplished in 8 months
And I cant believe it
I think about Christmas
The gifts I still need to buy
All the things we as a family will do to celebrate
Those are my wandering thoughts on this fine Thursday
