What made me smile this week?

Hello everyone. Two more days and I’m off to the Philippines. Three weeks of fun, mother bonding, sun, sand, sea, Filipino food to the max, friends and more fun. Mind you, we’re having such warm days in Bavaria, no snow yet, hopefully it comes when I’m gone. Yesterday, we had a cosy day, the cyclamen […]

Simple – Daily Prompt

A day of leisure and the children snatched the chance to play. Like angels enjoying the waves of childhood, they played outside the garden, on clay soil or grass or on the streets. They made their own simple toys, like boats from pieces of bread, spears from sticks and small houses from stones and boxes. […]

Journey’s End by J. R. R. Tolkien

In western lands beneath the Sun The flowers may rise in Spring, The trees may bud, the waters run, The merry finches sing. Or there maybe ’tis cloudless night, And swaying branches bear The Elven-stars as jewels white Amid their branching hair. Though here at journey’s end I lie In darkness buried deep, Beyond all […]

Romance by Edgar Allan Poe

Romance, who loves to nod and sing With drowsy head and folded wing Among the green leaves as they shake Far down within some shadowy lake, To me a painted paroquet Hath been—most familiar bird— Taught me my alphabet to say, To lisp my very earliest word While in the wild wood I did lie, […]

Sonnet 50: How heavy do I journey on the way by William Shakespeare

How heavy do I journey on the way, When what I seek, my weary travel’s end, Doth teach that case and that repose to say, “Thus far the miles are measured from thy friend!” The beast that bears me, tired with my woe, Plods dully on, to bear that weight in me, As if by […]

Tale Weaver # 96 – December 15th – What you see out your front door

Outside my front door, birds singing Dogs running, children cycling, people passing Hear the baby bird cries for his food Among the branches, doves cooed Unfettered that he’s bigger than the mother It doesn’t matter, as I hear my cat purr Check our flowers and ferns, all thriving A neighbour, all about her holiday babbling […]
