Aug 1-5 prompts

Sorry for the extended absence; my health has been less than kind lately and it has had me in a downward spiral. It is all the external triggers that I can’t control – been hard to pull up &  get anything accomplished, even when consciously practicing self-care.  Continue reading “Aug 1-5 prompts”

June 4 & 5 prompt + poem

Today is beautiful here in Salem, Oregon. Warm, sunny – with just the right amount of clouds to keep it from being hot.  So let’s get caught up …

Yesterday’s prompt was “life from your pet’s perspective”. This always results in some interesting lines. And you learn something new about yourself when you look through another’s eyes.

Today’s prompt is “missed appointment“. … something I have been all too familiar with the past couple of years.

One of my pet persona poems (I was pretty miffed at myself, can you tell) …
