51 Years Around the Sun (19 Feb 2023)

This week has been a hectic one and sometimes creativity is lower than others but another week is a good week.

13 Feb 2023- Poem

This is a poem I shared on my blog. The inspiration of this poem came from my first times sharing my poetry and sometimes delving into the political environment.


Mundane words fall upon deaf ears
Raised upon woeful fears
To not hear what I say
This fateful day
Of loss and destruction upon us now
How we will escape I don’t know how
A desperate measure we must take
Or a regrettable mistake we will make
To not take action at this pivotal point
The whole machine will disjoint

The lazy day for a dog. Chloe and Claire relaxing while dad works. Claire works in the office while Chloe works remote on the couch.

Claire in the office. She is my daily coworker in the office

15 Feb 2023- Poem. It is was a windy day and I was inspired to to write a poem about the wind. I find nature amazing and can inspire so much writing, the beauty and beast of it.

The Beast

The wind wailed as if a beast, wanting in.
Feel the shake causing the house to quake.
Whistling a tune to set my mind at ease, let me in please

For I know your game, you will whirl and twirl things about, bring chaos to this place, leaving with only a disaster to trace.

So you stay outside, until you calm down and decide to subside.

16 Feb 2023-Quote

I have been meditating daily for the last 13 days and the app I use for meditation has a daily quote. Sometimes I find these quotes inspirational or have a deep effect on me and the following is one of them.

“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.”- Aristotle

17 Feb 2023- Photography

I have been taking photographs for years now and I don’t share a whole bunch here and I think my camera is starting to get upset with me and captured this in a photo, or at least I think I did.

I think my camera wants is watching me and wants to get out

18 Feb 2023-Thought

I wanted to share a little thought I had in my poetry notebook.

“I feel as though my writing has become stagnant and am at a loss of inspiration.”

I wrote this and have seen several blog posts where people have taken a break or feel as though writing isn’t coming as easy to them; and I want to let people know that I have felt this and my writing is evolving and maybe how I write is changing as well and they are not alone in this struggle.

I hope you enjoy these weekly posts as much as I enjoy creating them.
