Fight Another Day – #poetry of #life struggles

Tags

, , , ,


Exhausted, past the point of no return

Body aches and trembles, showing no concern

Everyday things, becoming cumbersome

By the end of the day, I’m nothing but numb

Pushing the limits, with no end in sight

Why is it, I never do, what it is that’s right?

Years of abuse, to myself, I have endured

Time and time again, my life, I have poured

Into an empty shell, trying to regain strength

Knowing in my heart, I would go to any length

To make myself better, than I was, yesterday

Trying to find the path, yet, still I go astray

Refusing to be defeated, by this human shell

Embattled, with the agony, of which, I never tell

Only I can resurrect the soul so deep inside

Else I’ll shrivel up, like a flower that has died

No, I’m not ready, not quite yet, to simply wilt away

I’ll be back tomorrow, just to fight another day!

Tea Time Talk #31 – #TeaTimeTalk

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

Good morning, friends. It’s been a busy week, and I’m exhausted, but raring to go! lol   Won’t you join me for a cup of tea or coffee, sit a while and chat?  🙂   If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: we actually got the snowstorm they predicted, though not really much snow.  Lys & I got caught in the worst part of it, visiting and having lunch with my Mom.  We were relieved when we finally made it home.  They were already beginning to close some of the roads because of the storm.  The one main road by my house always becomes so treacherous, it’s usually the first one shut down.  If you didn’t see my poem, “On Daydreams“, this is the picture of what it looked like out Mom’s window before we headed home. If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: now that Thanksgiving has passed, I can actually get some things done.  It’s December, so, Christmas is coming and so is Alyssa’s and my LuLaRoe launch party!  I’ve been busily painting the walls, next I’ll be decking the halls! LOL

If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: no pups this week, which was fine because I had quite enough to keep me busy. Although, I admit, I miss them when I don’t walk them. If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: yesterday, we had our church WOW (Women of Worship) Christmas Fellowship luncheon.  There were about 80 of us, and it was wonderful.  Pastor Jan spoke of the “Comfort of Christmas.”  The food was delicious, and this is the beautiful (yummy chocolate) cake we all devoured! If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: we started putting our little boutique together for LuLaRoe.  Hubby’s been a huge help!  Definitely couldn’t have done it without him.  I’ll share pictures after we finish the whole thing!  🙂

If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: today, after church, we are going to the Ringwood Manor for a Victorian Christmas. The manor is decorated beautifully for the holiday season.  Can’t wait to take pictures and share them with all of you!   ❤  

 

As for the week ahead: If we were sipping tea, basking in the sun and talking I would tell you: I’ll be running in circles getting ready for next weekend.. Anyone care to decorate the house for me? lol

If we were sipping tea, basking in the sun and talking I would tell you: I get to walk Darty on Friday!!  Yay!  He’s such a sweet pup and definitely loves his tummy rubs.

If we were sipping tea, basking in the sun and talking I would tell you: it’s off to church I go! Busy day ahead.  Until next time, be well, and have a blessed week, my friends!  ❤

#FridayFantasy ~ Enchanted Spell – #poetry

Enchantment waits in ebon flight
A raptor takes his place
Guided by the maiden’s light
In this mysterious place

Upon her shoulder he does rest
To wait the next command
A silent chant from ruby lips
Awakens where she stands

Fairy lights from her lantern glow
Fueled by the maiden’s plight
They must find the one she loves
In the darkness of the night

Yet, Enchantment waits in ebon flight
With a destiny to foretell
“I am the one you are waiting for,
This owl, now rapt in your spell.
I’ve traveled back from whence I came,
To light your lantern once again”

Gleaming, amongst the shadows

Brightening the night

Crystallized

A raindrop, frozen

Within time

Warms the soul

Though its delicate beauty

Swiftly melts away
