In the Twilight

Slipping in the mud
Don’t go down
Must finish tonight


Been a while since I tried this form for poetry even if all I could think about was working on the pig’s shelter today.

Badly Written – Random Reminiscence

Like watching a train
Must know how this story ends
Can’t look away now


What used to happen to me no matter what book it was I picked up. Mostly, I was thinking about this one novel that used to belong to my Granny Martha. I thought, “Oh! It might be interesting!”

It is the only book that I have ever thrown away.

And I don’t mean send to DI or another thrift store.

No.

I tied it up in a bag and walked it out to the garbage can outside.

To this day, I wish I’d already learned the lesson that you don’t have to finish a book just because you’ve already read half of it.

 

Betrayal – Eclectic Corner #11

Mud between the toes

This room is full of betrayal

Quick clean in the sink

How could this happen to me?
I made my mistakes,
Got nowhere to run.

I’m throwing in all three parts of this month’s Eclectic Corner #11: Momentarily at the same time due to being so incredibly late in getting it up at all…

Memories to Make Together – Eclectic Corner #8

Walk with me through life

It will certainly be sweet

Together we’ll grow.


This was how my newest brother-in-law asked my youngest sister to marry him almost a year and a half ago. He took her to where they met, our elementary school, and they walked around it reminiscing while his sister quickly set this up on a chair near where we would all leave the school to walk home together.

He had promised her a cookie a few weeks earlier when she’d been craving them.

After opening the box and seeing this, she turned around to find him down on one knee.

This is the picture that caught my eye when I went looking through my pictures for Eclectic Corner #8: Splash of Colour.
