Glinting Behind

Go on with your life
Look ahead and not behind
And keep your chin up.
So ‘they’ decided that you are uneeded.
So let your past remain behind
to in the sun, glint and shine.

Not Ready – #4 Poetry Prompt

The light bleeds inside
Time has slipped me by a ways
No summer yet please!

The picture is of one of my sister’s cats from a few years ago; her name was Miri and she was adorable.

What’s in a Window Well?

What will you find in here?
Inside there is a treasure trove of things.
Now don’t forget that there are dangers as well.
Do be cautious when climing on through
Or you might be surprised by a spider with red on her back.
Without gravel to kill it quick, you’ll be singing in a high pitch.
Try to be curious while being sensible.
Well, don’t forget the moments of childhood with these;
Ever had to learn the difference between poppy leaves and mint?
Let me give you a clue if you’re unlucky enough, ignore the fuzz.
Left of the window well of my childhood, lay the garden of herbs.

Also, listening to my niece and nephews do their housework and yard work. They’ve been cleaning out the window wells these past few days and it reminded me of the window wells around my childhood home.
