That was a grand entrance

That was a grand entrance
All eyes are on her
With a glance she prance

Then she exits after
A major decision
All eyes are on her

On some minor action
She has to carry on
A major decision

From sunrise until dawn
The world is her oyster
She has to carry on

Even if sometimes err
Experience and challenge
The world is her oyster

In the world she must plunge
That was a grand entrance
Experience and challenge
With a glance she prance*

Saturday Mix – Same Same But Different, 2 December 2017

My heart soars when you glance at me
I was vexed with myself for that
Hope to get to know you with glee
My heart soars when you glance at me
I’ve sketched your face, don’t be angry
I’m glad you’re here for a chat
My heart soars when you glance at me
I was vexed with myself for that*

Saturday Mix – Double Take, 25 November 2017

I used to be timid but now
I can do and say what I want
Bolder

I walk to the cliff and boulders
Magnificent view from the top
Big rocks

Like a bird, the son left the nest
He flew to where his wings can reach
Farewell

It’s that time of the year again
When most people are ill with flu
Take care

Don’t block air vents, flues or chimneys
And don’t have indoor fires in rooms
No air

November 16: Flash Fiction Challenge – Mesh in Shadorma

working-template-for-ff-challenges5

common mesh
their memories mesh
history
together
caught in a mesh of crosses
and double crosses

like a shoal
herrings trashed in net
play on fears
of unknown
reality of nature
form intricate mesh

interesting
family structure
complex mesh
hierarchy
mesh of power equations
conflicts between them

he and she
her frame mesh with his
flawlessly
fingers mesh
his heart beats with hers, in time
like no tomorrow

harmony
almost feel her warmth
in concord
in rhythm
between them there’s just one soul
synchronize breathing

together
be in harmony
ebony
and ivory
together make sweet music
and forever more

Life in Shadorma

ankh
The ankh was a symbol of life in ancient Egypt

Ups and downs
Life as we know it
Sometimes broad
Or narrow
Accept our own challenges
Seize the day, we say

Good or bad
Funny or serious
Don’t worry
A new dawn
Feeling grateful for all things
Happy with my life

Path of life
Own way of crossing
Not smooth
Be patient
Light at the end of tunnel
There is always hope
