SLIP and Time



Dark foggy night – full moon – tree branch


The black void of space

A slip in the universe

Time is out of place

oooooooo weird

So, this just happened a little bit ago.

Our electricity blinked out for a few seconds. That’s not too unusual, as it does from time to time. They are working at the end of the street on putting in a new traffic light, and I guess some wires get messed up maybe?

What is strange is just as it did go out, we were talking about lights and light bulbs. Our kitchen overhead light went out a couple of days ago, so we need to get another one of those round florescent bulbs to replace it. Also, I was asking what ever happened to our other kitchen/dining room light. It is now the same florescent kind, but we used to have a chandelier type light. I don’t know what we ever did with it – maybe sold it at a yard sale?

Anyway, it was weird that just as we were talking about lights that the lights went out!  Then we had to reset the clocks, tv, and computer. haha I love it when strange things happen.  Co-incident ? or not! 🙂

Kinda Spooky


This is the final post for the October Squares (Kind) challenge. Thanks so much for hosting, Becky! 🙂


Spooky night with full moon.

My spooky painted rock (orange with black letters)


Spooky noises

Screeching voices,

Werewolves start to howl…

Candles lit,

Don’t get bit,

By vampires on the prowl.

A large spider that was in the house.



Flowing shroud

Moaning loud

Misty fog

Swampy bog

Haunting night

Lantern light

Scary scene


Spooky specters roam around

Corpses rise from underground

Spiders crawl to fuel your fears

Rest in peace for years and years

Come Halloween, ghosts converge

Fantasy and real will surely merge

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Bewitched


Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Bewitched

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt “Bewitched” October 26, 2020


My painted rock of a Witch




From Oz to Salem, to suburban mayhem,

The witches entertained us all.

The witch of the west, was creepy at best,

And Glinda was belle of the ball.

Samantha twitched her nose,

Whenever she chose, and

Sabrina’s cat talks to her, it is true.

Elphaba was wicked,

Endora was vivid…

They all were an interesting crew.

The Sanderson sisters were funny and camp,

The witches of Eastwick were duped…

They all used their craft, and a bit of their vamp,

But Morticia’s my all favorite champ.


Shows referenced = Bewitched, The Wizard of Oz, The Addams Family, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Hocus Pocus, The Witches of Eastwick, and Wicked (broadway play)

31 Days of Halloween – Haunted


31 Days of Halloween – Haunted

Tourmaline .’s Halloween Challenge – Haunted


From a haunted forest to a haunted house = Beware!

Rock painted black with orange bare branched trees, and mysterious eyes peeking out – “Beware – The Haunted Forest” in words.


House of horror

House of fright

Gives me chills

This cold, cold night

Afraid without

Afraid within

Rattling bones

And a skeleton’s grin

Cobwebs are hanging

And shutters are banging

What’s that noise

It’s chains a-clanging

There seeps a fog

So damp and dense

It swirls around

Both house and fence

The floors are creaky

Tonight’s most freaky

No place for those

Who’s hearts are weakly

Hear the lonely wolves a-howling

Ghosts and monsters go a-prowling

Dare you to come in with me

Two together…brave we’ll be

ESP, Your Pets, & You


ESP, Your Pets, & You


I wrote this back in 2014.



Do you communicate with your pets? Have you really tried? Have you looked deep into your pet’s eyes, and said something to them with your mind, not your voice? Have you gotten a response…maybe, a loving gaze from them, or a thought that came into your mind from them, possibly just an image or picture of something out of the blue? I believe that is your pet and you communicating on a very basic level…mind to mind, heart to heart.

Extra sensory perception – ESP…the 6th sense…information that comes to you beyond the limitations of normal hearing, seeing, touching, smelling  or tasting. It is a receiving of information, concerning the past, present, or future, originating in a second, or alternative reality.

If you have a pet, be it a dog, cat, bird, or other animal we share our homes/lives with on a daily basis, you probably talk to them a lot. We treat them as part of our family, and they learn what we are saying and what we mean, especially at meal times. Other times we scold them, and they know they’ve made some little mistake. We give them hugs, or tell them our secrets, and give them love. They give that love right back to us, uninhibited.

For me, I believe I will again see my pets that have passed away…in heaven. They will all be there to greet me when I get there. Some may disagree…and that’s fine. We all have our own set of beliefs. However, this story happened just as I’m going to write it. It is one I will never forget, and I know what I saw and felt at the time.

Quite a few years ago, my sister’s dog, a Pomeranian named Trixie, passed away. She was failing in health, as she was aged, but we did not think it was time for her to leave us, just yet. However, I suppose she thought different.  The family was all gathered around watching a tv show, that evening. I noticed that Trixie came and sat in front of me, just staring at me for the longest time.

I got the strongest feeling she was saying good-bye. I looked into her eyes, and silently said to her that I loved her, and would see her later someday. She seemed happy with that. She then moved over to each family member, in turn, doing the same thing…staring at them with a loving look. I don’t think anyone else noticed, though. I could tell she was beaming her loving thoughts to them, thanking them all for being her family all these years.

The next morning, she was gone, passed away during the night. I’m glad we got to say our final good-byes the night before. (I’m going to cry, now…and it has been so many years ago…it is still a beautiful, yet sad remembrance.)  But, I know I will see her again. I will see all my other pets that have gone on before me…someday. That’s why I never say good-bye…to pets, or to people. I’ve told them all the same…that it is not good-bye…just…”See you later.”

If we want to have a chance of communicating with our pets, we have to learn to pay attention to what they are trying to tell us, in their own way.
