#Poem on Friday ~ Take Life in Your Hands

Hello out there, how are you? I hope life is treating you well and if not that you have a mug or glass of your favourite beverage and lots of ice cream and chocolate. Yes, I know that is not the most healthy option to cheer oneself up but sometimes it is the only way… πŸ™‚

It’s Friday and my time to post a poem so let’s not talk the day away just go for it πŸ™‚

take life in your hands

choose what encourages you

see the sun rising

Happy Friday to you all despite everything πŸ™‚

#Poem on Friday: Bow in Gratitude

Happy Friday to you all. Let your day rock no matter the challenges. I believe you can manage anything thrown at you.

Sowing and planting

These hopes grow every day

Bow in gratitude

Just a short note to everybody. I could start chemotherapy on Monday. Thankfully, I am not bothered with many side-effects (yet) but am really really tired so everything is going on a slow burner.

Thank you so much for all your kind messages on social media and here in the comments. I appreciate them a lot and they help me keep up on everything. Yesterday I wrote a little about my experience on Carol Anne’s “Therapy Bits”: “Bee’s Poem of the Day: Breathe” Please pay her blog a visit. Thanks.

Happy Friday despite everything!

Human Being

Human being not doing

Remember your roots

Remember harmony


Human being

Happy Friday to you all despite everything!

#Poem on Friday~ Snow glad Mountains

Hello out there, how is it going? I hope you are well and if not find some healing energy coming your way.

A month ago I sat in our living room wondering who will be winning the general election and how my mental health will go. It was rather stormy outside. I love those windy nights when you can snuggle up with a book or in front of the tv for a nice film. Cup of tea in my hands and relaxing.

Am wishing you a wonderful weekend with this little poem

See snow glad mountains

they are dancing and glisten

awoken from dream

#FirstLineFriday: Never Burn a Bridge

Hello out there, how are you faring? Do you have a cracking Friday or is the day *addcursewordofyourchoice” πŸ˜‰ ? If the latter is the case I am sending you a big thing to punch to get rid of your frustration and a hug. You will find a solution for your challenge, please, just don’t give up.

My Friday is ok. My mind is a little all over the place as it always is so please bear with me. πŸ™‚ Today I decided to take part in “Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie’s” “First Line Friday”. You can find the challenge and rules here at “First Line Friday: November 8th, 2019“.

The suggested first line is “Never burn a bridge you could push them off later ” which made me grin. There is nothing like a good dose of sarcasm to get through the day πŸ˜‰ . So with no further ado here is my contribution:


Never” dare I say

burn too much emotion into

a unicorn. They

bridge this and that sentiment.

You though

could soar with the clouds or

push my buttons.

Them!” they said disgusted.

Off with them”.

Later they regretted forever.

I admit I cheated a little with the first line as it is vertical not horizontal and I hope pushing these limits give you something to enjoy. πŸ™‚

Have a happy Friday no matter what and feel free to take part this great challenge!!!!!

Thirteen ~ A #poem

It’s Friday the thirteenth and some years ago I wrote a poem about this glorious number:

All my black cats & ladders

are dancing in my mind ~

Thirteen ~

holy to some ~

dangerous to others ~

Where is the truth?

Do you believe in bad luck on Friday the thirteenth or are you not bothered.

Find lots of information on Friday 13th on Liveabout.dotcom.

Sending you love and good vibes no matter what you believe 😊

Poem on Friday: Maybe

March 2019

My prediction from July 2016 seems to come true: it won’t be as bad as remain predicts but it looks like the leavers get nothing. Who wins? Globalisation and big corporations. And some politicians too, I suspect. Well, let’s brace ourselves for the ride…

July 2016

I am writing this post on Tuesday 28th of June and the poem at the end of the post somehow has changed my negative view on the EU exit of the UK. The more I think about it the more I believe the EU is better off without the UK. I do not dare to predict the future of the UK. It won’t be as bad as the “remain” campaign predicted but hardly any of the goals of the “leave” campaign will become reality.

Never mind. 52% proud British citizens have gotten the power back to their country. What comes after that and what they might have done to the world economy doesn’t matter to them. To me, they feel more and more like sulking teenagers who demand more freedom of decision to do things that are clearly stupid but they are old enough to do that now.

I just feel sorry for the 48% who wanted to remain because those will have to suffer for it. And I am sorry for all the youngsters in this country who might have lost a lot of chances for their future because their parents and grandparents stubbornly needed to go for the wrong decision for all the wrong reasons.



maybe – there is a light
maybe – there is a tomorrow
maybe – there is love
maybe – there is hope
maybe – there is …
