#ThankfulThursday – You!

Standard

Today I choose to celebrate a friend indeed, who is one in millions. We do have our moments, but have grown to understand each other’s idiosyncrasies and enjoy our silliness. This is me saying thank you for always…you are appreciated!

Standing, not Fallen Flags

Standard

Many men and women have sacrificed their lives and loves for the love of their Country, to ensure the safety of their people, lands and borders. Sometimes, we celebrate them, other times we immortalize them. Ronovan’s challenge for today to me is a call to celebrate them https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/2016/05/30/ronovanwrites-weekly-haiku-poetry-prompt-challenge-99-flagfallen/

Heroes Past

Half-mast flags mean sad

Lives cut in prime and duty

…Decorated dead

Not Forgotten

We celebrate you

Though gone, your good deeds we praise

As our flags we raise

#WQWWC – Inspiration

Standard

Colleen wants to know what inspires me. Too bad that cannot be covered in a page or two as some are intangible and can’t be described, painted or explained. I’ve tried to capture some of my inspirational moments, smiling as I remember each. This is for you Colleen, one of my inspiration source. https://silverthreading.com/2016/06/01/wqwwc-writers-quote-wednesday-writing-challenge-inspiration/

With the fluttering of wings
The words in my heart sings
Dancing to tunes, not phone rings
That take shapes on paper and blinks
Beyond heavy chains and metal blings
With the smile of a child
My creative thoughts run wild
Baring fantasies that won’t hide
As through the winds you glide
From the Word in the Word
To the strength of two-edged swords
Juices drip and flood the chords
Rhymes grip the unwritten buds
Life, death, loss, gain
Strife, birth, cost, rain
Wife, breath, frost, grain
Knife, health, bust, plain
I easily exhale and relate
That which causes me no debate
Inspirations do not deserve to wait
Let’s rock, roll and continue to create.
