Oct 21 prompt and poem

Today is National Apple Day.  We say apples are very American –  there is apple pie, apple crumble, apple cider, legendary Johnny Appleseed – and one of my favorite love tokens,  apple cider donuts. I  spent Saturday evening sipping hot apple tea in front of a talkative wood fire.

Oct 20 prompt and poem

Nothing to me is a scary & spooky as a spider. And many stories use them to up the fear factor. Tolkein inserts the Spiders of Mirkwood in Hobbit & Shelob in Return of the King.  Aragog & his children in Harry Potter. In Doctor Who, itis the arachnoids, (Think I geek much?) Arachnophobia. The early myths of Arachne.  Etcetera, etcetera etcetera.

Oct 18 prompt and poem

I’m sitting, sipping a little Daydreamer tea that fellow poet, TL Cooper gifted me. My laptop, Pixy,  is still not charging up – so I have been using the desktop PC, MyLady, that rests on my bedroom desk. The hub of the home’s network, she doesn’t get much keyboard action but she usually is very active multi-tasking despite being quiet – a lot like me.   But the past few days we have been spending time together and I forget how cozy it can be to hide out in my purple room. I have a deep plum candle dancing, cushy lil’ cushion for my tushie, a cat purring at the foot of the bed, a fluffy blanket still warm from the dryer. Very safe, very secure …
