Reblog – ALONG A COUNTRY ROAD by Keith Garrett

A great scene to flash through our minds. Lovely imagery and a real sense of nostalgia in this piece. Enjoy!



These things I might find strolling along a country road,

From my mind, I can create a day or reality along my way.

I see the sun rising in the early morning sky, my day begins,

Dream do I of a perfect setting, fields, and hills of beautiful color.

Nothing can go wrong, not in this made up scene that I want to be,

Swim do I in a pond that appears along a country road, quiet and alone.

There is a wind blowing through the trees, across the field I feel,

Haystacks scattered in a country dream, a farm where I wish to be,

Along a country road, all possibilities unfold, from a dream, all that can be seen.

Inspired by Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Dance & Reena’s Exploration Challenge #182

life is a dance
of up and down
and side to side
with the flow or against

we move in varying degrees
executing a series of gradations
achieving defeats and successes
we become in the motion

it certainly isn’t boring

I commented that this piece captures the feeling that we are limited at times even when we have great aspirations. Byung matched her beautiful words with a most appropriate image. Enjoy!

Reblog – Tanka: Black & White Memory

This piece has me coming back again and again. I can find many sentiments expressed in this. How about you?

The Twisting Tail

defy the long sleep

dark circles shadow your eyes
bear the weight of life

brutal ignorance becomes
a black and white memory

Reblog – A Little Less Cruel by Christo N.

There are many truths in this piece. Life is not for the faint of heart, as they say.

Sailor Songs - Poetry from the deep..

Wedo our best to navigate the problems at hand



In myneckof the woods

We all live lives

Of quiet tragedy

Some more than others it’s true

But spend long enough on planet earth

And something will go wrong

Pray you have the strength


Trauma and turmoil

When the devil strikes

Because no matter who you are

Things can fall apart

In a heart beat

In a day

In a year

And some get so down

They choose to end it

So that it takes hard work

To forgive humanity

To love this imperfect world

With allitsflaws

And it’salsotrue

That once in a blue moon

A man or woman finds peace

Epiphany, Euphoria andEcstasy

Even for just a moment

And that knowing these states are possible

Can get you through

And keep the wolves at bay
