I've been writing poetry from the age of 12. It has, and always will be my outlet, my voice. Join me on my journey . . . I can write about almost anything. :) ~ Life doesn't come with a shiny new book; no users manual of answers to find with one look. Life comes with doors that open and shut; and paths laid before us to be followed or passed up. There's things we can learn and things we may teach; hearts that may find us and souls we may reach. Guaranteed on this journey are teacups of tears; and pains that might hurt us may age us by years. But the beauty of life, love, laughter and giving; come from serving hugs on a platter each and every day we're living. ~

"Surviving Old Man Winter"

I look out my window,
there's winter all around.
It makes the leaves fall,
it freezes the ground.

The trees are all nekkid,
they're colder than me;
for they live outside
with no heat for a tree.

Feeling so random
I look back inside.
Surviving this cold
makes me want to hide.

While I do I'll drink water
and suggest you do too.
Hydrate your body,
it's healthy for you.

I look towards my couch
at the Snuggie, so pink;
think looks can deceive,
it's not as warm as you think.

I curl up on my couch
and grab my laptop;
open up my email
to see what I've got.

An email from Pakistan
says I've won some bling-bling.
I laugh, clicking 'delete' . . .
never trust a "sure" thing.

My mailbox is now empty
and I've blogged about my day.
Logged on to tweet on twitter
with a thing or two to say.

Suddenly struck by a craving,
I want some food for my tummy.
I serve myself some peanut butter,
it's pleasing and yummy!

I satisfy my craving
then opt to take a nap,
with my sweet little girl
curled up on my lap.


Inspired by a twitter prompt:
The following random statements...
~surviving the cold
~looks can decieve
~i love peanut butter
~nekkid trees
~don't ever trust a sure thing
~drink water
