1 AM late night ramble!

1 AM!
Time for me
To let my lab out
For his nightly sniff
Around the garden
To see
Will he do his thing
And pee?
But all he wants to do
Is sniff, sniff
There must be some nice smells
On the grass
I am loving
The noises his little labby nose makes
As he sniffs the air
And grass beneath his feet
When I call his name
For him to come on and come inside
He ignores me
Too interested in his surroundings
Then all of a sudden
He is done
And he comes and stands by my side,
Looking at me
putting his nose in my hand
what a cute puppy!

πŸ˜€
I love love my little lab! He’s sooo cute!
πŸ˜€
Good night!

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.

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

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 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
