Poem # 26

Trick or Treat

Happy holiday hijinks

Abound this night

Laughter and

Little ones go

Out trick or treating

Wearing costumes of their choosing

Even if it’s cold weather

Everyone has a good time

(k)Nocking on doors, begging for candy

CONCENTRATION – for STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS SATURDAY

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS July 9/16

untitled

***

Today we have as the prompt word, ‘concentration’.

I thought about it a little bit, and read some of the other entries for today. Seems what I’d thought about has already been written about. Guess that’s because lots of participants get their’s done early in the day. I, on the other hand, just don’t, because too early in the morning and I can’t concentrate. I need coffee, and cats have to be fed, then I need breakfast, and then there’s dishes, and laundry, and all kinds of things that have to be done, including going somewhere sometimes. So, I get to my posting late in the day.

I was going to mention the old TV game show, Concentration. I used to love that show. We even had a sort of board game thing of this. It was a box, with a roll of paper inside, that you scroll up with little knobs. This was the way to change the puzzle you have to solve. It also had little yellow tabs for numbers and the prizes you could win. They fitted onto the top of the plastic holder on top of the box.

Then there was mentioned the concentration camps. Such a horror in the history of the world. I did visit one, Dachau, in Germany. It was a memorial type museum now, in which there were photos, art, and the stories of what happened there. We actually stood in one of the gas chambers. I’m not lying, when I say you could feel the spirits of all those who perished.

Then there is the fact I can’t really concentrate on any one thing for very long. Too many distractions with ADHD.

So, what to write…I did think of something I didn’t see mentioned yet. It is the drinks/juices that are made from concentrate, or those that say they are not from concentrate. One has the water taken out, to be added later, and one doesn’t. I read that it is a matter of cost of shipping, as water is heavy, so they ship the concentrated drink, to have someone else add the water to it.

Now, to end on a different note? theme? idea?

excuse the bad grammar –

C- can’t

O- only

N – not

C- concentrate

E – every

N – now &

T – then

R – remembering

A – any

T – thing

I – is

O – only

N – now & again

greek-house

Many myths have been passed down as folklore.

Yearning for inspiration, people called on the nine muses

To help them create beautiful music, art, and writing.

Having your personal muse look fair upon you,

Still today, is seen as entirely credible.

***

Nine daughters of Zeus

Are sent as your muse

Imparting knowledge and inspiration,

Yours will come to stay

For a week or a day,

So, don’t fret when they go on vacation.

Now, I didn’t know there was a Crayon called Beaver. From the chart we were given, it looks brown, or a sandy brown, or maybe a light brown. So, I looked through my pictures to find something similar. Hope I came close! 😉

INTUITION

Standard

Hi, again…Today’s Daily Post for Blogging U, and Writing 201: Poetry

Suggestions for us to try include…an Acrostic form of poem, an internal rhyme, and the word prompt was Trust…

~

INTUITION (Instincts)

Insecurity leads to indecision

Need to trust your intuition

Settle down, no need to frown

Try not to let it get you down

Inside whisper, becoming crisper

Never ignore your super transistor

Confidence will grow, just go with the flow

Trust your instincts, and soon you will know

Supernatural is not a superstition…if you trust your intuition

~

Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
