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 challenge from Bee, sorry its late this week…

Bee challenged me last week to the following poetry challenge, I said I’d do it, then time ran away with me, and I forgot! So I am late…but here it goes, I am going to try and give this a shot…

Her poetry challenge to me was…Eat it or beat it…

Yummy food
That I cooked
Lovingly
With my own hands
All made with care
And love…
I put my heart and soul into my creation
Sit down
Mindfully eat
Take stock
The taste, texture
Smell even
As I sit
Enjoy my creation
Eat it, or beat it
I tell myself
But nevermind the last part
There will be no beating it
Only eating it
And when I am finished
I will sink into a chair
Satisfied, and content again.

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
