For this week’s prompt to write to, we are to use Myths.

To find out more about this weekly prompt challenge, click below:





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.

Thanks for visiting! Peace }I{





Nothing, nothing, nothing will come

It’s driving me batty…I’ve come undone

My inner critic is laughing, it’s true

But really and truly, I’m feeling blue

No verses, no prose, not even a pun

Who ever said that writing is fun?

My mind is full of tripe and nonsense

The words are there, but they make me wince

I string them together by one and twos

Then scratch them out, too scattered to choose

How many days must this go on?

The more I try, the more I’m alone

My muse, I think, has gone on vacation

Leaving me here with no inspiration

Can’t focus on anything…my thoughts on the run

And until I catch them, the race is not done

So, now I continue to sit on the fence

Which leaves me feeling frustrated and tense

Hey, wait…wait just a darn minute

A break in the clouds…I think I’m still in it

I have an idea, and it may be silly

But, no matter the trail be rocky and hilly

I’ll give it a try…see where it leads

Thread words together, like string through the beads

1. Thank the person who nominated you, and link to their blog.

2.  Display the award logo.

4. Mention three things that inspired you the most during the past few weeks.


Congratulations to those I’ve nominated! You are not obligated to accept this award, but know that I do enjoy reading your blogs, and appreciate all the hard work you put into them.









Three things that have inspired me lately:

1. My 15 month old grand-daughter. It is amazing to see her learn new things, Her smiles and laughter is so sweet. To see the world through a baby’s eyes is refreshing, and makes you take the time to look at everything around you with a new outlook. And my 5 year old grand-son, who is discovering and excelling in his writing and artwork, and is inspired by the stars above and the many rocks he finds here on the ground. They both have the wonder and love of life. They are very inspiring to me!

2. My cat, Cricket. She was ill the past week and had to go to the vet for treatment. She did not complain about feeling bad, and only a few growls, when she was examined. We should all be as calm about our situations, less complaining, and worry, and know that things will be better for us soon.

3. Reading blogs of all types. Everyone writes in their own special way, giving us a peek into their world, whether happy, sad, silly and fun, or just a rundown on their life experiences. We can all learn from each other, that there are many ways of doing things, wherever we live, whatever our customs…and that is very inspiring to me!


Thank you again, Yinglan, for the nomination!


And thank you, everyone, for taking the time out of your day to stop here for a few moments! I do appreciate you! 🙂
