A simple pattern of success
Spread on my wall all of these
Climb to the edge even with stress
Some photographs and memories

The path with stones and gravel
On the way there some tight squeeze
Low and humble but cheerful
Some photographs and memories

Trim the grass, spray some water
Good for the plants and all the trees
Tie some knots, the world is closer
Some photographs and memories*

Sunday Photo Fiction – July 1, 2018 – A place which I call my home

This is a place which I call my home
Where I ever learn my lessons
Some ideas flitted through my mind
In the spirit of God and Rome

Sometimes this looks like a honeycomb
A cycle of confusions
The essence of all drama combined
Translated peace, the word shalom

The music is like a palindrome
Things I do seasons to seasons
A place where I could just rewind
In spiral pattern as I roam

This is a place which I call my home
Where I ever learn my lessons
Some ideas flitted through my mind
In the spirit of God and Rome*

Sunday Photo Fiction – Somewhere safe, no rattling blare

A place to eat in the middle of nowhere
Some sort of a limbo for us all
Somewhere safe, no rattling blare

I gasp for all the wear and tear
A couple of images around the stall
A place to eat in the middle of nowhere

I rang a bell so they’ll be aware
A man folding some chairs, he’s tall
Somewhere safe, no rattling blare

A blade of grass bowing like prayer
A girl picking up shells, she’s small
A place to eat in the middle of nowhere

A small gravel pit in the square
Hope that little boy doesn’t fall
Somewhere safe, no rattling blare

I ordered some food as I sat on the chair
He came with a smile, the man who’s tall
A place to eat in the middle of nowhere
Somewhere safe, no rattling blare*

Sunday Writing Prompt – Teachers

Teacher Tableau

Once I had a crush
Couldn’t call or tell
I must be fifteen
Our sports teacher
Fiddle thee no harm
Alone I just dream

In dreams, he’s honey
Swoon when he pass by
Tall like a tower
Such a treat I thought
Never late in sports
Always out of breath

And then I grew up
I met other guys
Went to dance and fun
He wasn’t that swell
I’m sure he’s married
My teacher, my crush*

100 Word Wednesday: Week 74 – Our lives in prose

img_9417
Image by Bikurgurl

I spend years breathing and writing
Writing in the spirit of the place
Place on earth that is so sacred
Sacred to me and my neighbour’s grace

In this quiet neighbourhood I grew
Grew up to be prosperous and kind
Kind of digging the past and listening
Listening to lessons, keep them in mind

Bear with us and all our antics
Antics we like, acts we tolerate
Tolerate as we live in peace
Peace, eccentricity, as we await

People come and go
Go to where the wind blows
Blows all the leaves in autumn
Autumn and our lives in prose*

Sunday Writing Prompt “Collage Prompt #41”

collage-43

Try and channel your energy
Grab it when you’re given a chance
Life is short, cycle, crawl or dance
Don’t look back for bad memory

Life is a marathon
Not a race
Take it easy
Link the past
And the future
Blast from the past

For now consider your stance
Don’t be lost, be strong and free
And be as busy as a bee
Learning experience to enhance

Smell the flowers
Walk in the rain
Listen to the birds
They’re singing a song
Be gentle
Be true

Maging isa sa mundo
Mabuhay at hayaang mabuhay
(Be one with the world
Live and let live)*

Up Around the Corner

PHOTO PROMPT © Rochelle Wisoff-Fields

Up around the corner
Crystal bowl from Grandma
At home from Shangri-La
Belongs to us with myrrh
Strips of ivy fir
Close to our hearts we saw

Hiding in the cardboard
Invisible we thought
Skipping through time nought
With black cloth we adored
Laugh we did as we roared
Hoping we won’t get caught

Memories in our hearts
Love that Grandma imparts*
