Aside

Take five

dainty flowers
all in a row
so pretty
as I sit
Waiting for my dog
To finish his 5 minute run
around the garden
Dainty flowers
Smell so good
As I breathe
In their sweet aroma
Now it is time
To take 5
Go get a coffee
And then
Relax with my book

Aside

I did it!

Standing on the scales
praying hard
then
all of a sudden
she says to me
you are down 2 pounds!
my stomach flips
with excitement
I did it!
I had the result I wished for
Am so proud
What a week!
Doing a happy dance!
Proud of me!

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

Carol Annes poetry challenge from bee…

Hello everyone. Its me, Carol anne, from the therapy bits blog. I am as you know a new contributor to bee’s blog.
So the lovely Bee prompted me to write a poem using this prompt.
My eyes listen to the light house in my mind”

Ok so this was a tough one for me! But, here goes!

waves crash
on the shore of my mind
my ears hear
what my eyes cant see
a beacon of light
like a ray of hope
as waves crash
threaten to flood
flooding my whole being
hope stays steadfast
and I hold on tight
to the ray of hope
thrown my way
from the far off beacon of light
The lighthouse that is my mind
