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

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…

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 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
