“I accept chaos. I’m not sure whether it accepts me. ~ Bob Dylan

Chaos is our prompt word. Here are a couple of things I wrote a long time ago.

Chaos is a dog we met –

  • Meeting Chaos was fun. He was a beautiful Great Dane dog. It was at a yard sale block long sale, and Chaos and his owner were out in their front yard. We stopped by to say hi, and meet the friendly dog.

This poem was written in 2014:

MOONLIGHT MADNESS

Beautiful orb up in the sky

Shining bright, as night goes by.

New, quarter, half, and full,

Tides below, feel your pull.

Only one side do I see…

Reveal your dark side, please, to me.

Maybe some night, turn around…

To the world, you would astound.

Is it possible…could you try?

Would chaos rule…would mad-men cry?

***

And this chaotic post was the final one for Just Jot It January.

Thank you everyone who stopped by to ‘look – like – comment’. I much appreciate. ❤

Just Jot It January # 30 – (Un) Finished

Today’s prompt comes to us compliments of Lauren. Thank you, Lauren!

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 30th, 2020, is “finished.” Use the word “finished” any way you’d like. Enjoy!

This is a poem I wrote back in 2015.

I was using the rhymed couplets to show peace, and the capitalized middle words to show anger that that after all this time, there is still war. – unceasing and never finished. Also by using words of nature showing how it can be peaceful and lovely days at times, and violent stormy days, too.

blue sky with pink clouds shaped like a wishbone

UNFINISHED

Quietly, quietly drift the clouds

Far above Earth’s rowdy crowds

THUNDER

Parading stately across the sky

Painting paradise in our eye

CRASHES

Take a moment to gaze above

Fill your senses with peace and love

LIGHTNING

Imagine floating without a care

Our mortal souls are free up there

FLASHES

Beauty does our eyes behold

Orange, pink, and nature’s gold

WIND

Sunrise, sunset, and in between

Starry nights, a moonlit gleam

GNASHES

Dream along, embracing peace

Praying for all war to cease

ANGER

Pure air inhale, life’s true incense

Live and love your truth…intense…

LASHES

Pretty good advice! I’m sure I’ve said something at one time or another that I shouldn’t have. I should keep my mouth closed and think before I speak, but I do have a bad habit of blurting out things which later I wish I could take back.

Okay, here’s a funny thing – On Just Jot It January last year, the prompt for January 19, 2019 was ‘television’. 🙂

Here’s my post from then, where I mostly talked about our cat watching a cat video on the TV! Sadly, we don’t have our indoor cats this year.

I would say I don’t really watch much TV. It’s on all the time, and my computer desk is right beside it, so I look over once in awhile. The mister is the one who watches shows.

I am too restless to just sit and stare at the TV. I have to be doing something else at the same time, such as typing my blogs, and reading others. Or I have a book I’m reading at the same time.

What I can’t stand is the commercials. They are so annoying.

We don’t really watch movies, and I think we have Netflix, but don’t understand how to use it, so don’t ever see anything with that either.

Mostly we have on the old sit-coms re-runs.

We watch some of the local news in the morning, and the Jeopardy game show in the afternoon – while doing other things.

Anyway, that’s my take on watching TV.

I took this photo today at about 11:35 a. m. with my camera pointed straight up at the sun. It was so bright and dazzling, I didn’t know if the picture even turned out, but this is what I got. The white hot sunlight throwing rays of light through the bare branches of our tree, all against the clear blue sky.

Today our prompt word is ‘busy’,

I guess we were a little busy today, as we went out to eat at lunch time, then to the grocery store. But, that’s a normal kind of day, so maybe not that busy.

Busy sounds like Buzzy a little bit. Reminds me of bees buzzing around – bzzzzzzy bee!

Here’s a couple of purple flowers with  bees that I took quite awhile ago. The bees are very busy gathering pollen from the pretty flowers.

Just No – Stream of Consciousness Saturday & Just Jot It January # 25

 

The Friday Reminder for #SoCS & #JusJoJan 2020 Daily Prompt – Jan. 25th

***

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “last call.” Talk about the enterprise (sales or service) conducted by the last phone call you received from a business you’re not associated with (i.e. your workplace), or talk about that phone conversation itself. Have fun!

***

Well, what we have here is a failure to communicate. That’s right – I don’t communicate with outside businesses that call on my phones. They have no business to call me umpteen times a day for no reason that interests me.

We have caller I. D. and if I don’t recognize the number I zap it off as fast as I can. It’s so annoying.

It’s just as bad when I get random text messages on my phone from weird places – like this one –

The messages say they’d like to sell our property, and sometimes they have our address, and sometimes it’s an address we’ve never heard of or lived at before. Then I have to take the time – a whole second maybe to delete the messages, because there’s always more than one.

On the phone ones, I have no idea what they’re selling, and even if I did know, I wouldn’t buy it from some random caller.

Just no – I will not communicate with any of them.

Daily Prompt – JusJoJan the 24th, 2020

Today’s prompt comes to us compliments of Wendy. Thanks, Wendy!

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 24th, 2020, is “change.” Use the word “change” any way you’d like. Enjoy!

***

The first thing I think of for the prompt word ‘change’ is money – as in coins.

Seems like we always have some loose change around here. I can usually find a few coins in the bottom of my purse. Sometimes I find one or two nickles or dimes in the washing machine – because somebody didn’t empty their pockets before their clothes got washed.

I have a thing about finding loose change, either pennies, or dimes, or quarters out in a parking lot. I always pick them up, too.

I also have several little change purses. I keep a lot of coins in them, because when I go to yard sales it is good to have some change to pay for small items I might want. Sometimes though I put a change purse somewhere , then forget I put it there until some other day, then I find it again — yay! lots more change!

Sometimes we’ve saved up lots of change coins to later cash in for dollars, or to save up for a fun meal at a restaurant. It’s gotten up to around $200 before.

I like change – how about you? 🙂

Janet gave us our prompt word for today. Thanks so much, Janet!

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 23rd, 2020, is “drive.” Use the word “drive” any way you’d like. Have fun!

***

Trying to think of something to say about ‘drive’ or ‘driving’.

I never liked to drive very much, though I did it for years. Makes me too nervous. I don’t even remember the last time I actually did any driving at all … maybe for a year or two.

There isn’t anywhere I want to drive to anyway, and the mister drives us to the grocery store, or to a restaurant. I’d much rather be the passenger so I can look out the windows, and take photos of things I see. I do a lot of ‘drive-by photos’.

Do you remember those old TV shows, where the family would get in their car and go for a drive – just to drive around – maybe on a Sunday? I can’t remember us ever doing that. Maybe people stopped doing that when gas prices went up so much.

I do remember one time my sister and I took a  26 mile drive around the newly constructed loop around the city. That was just for fun. Back in the day parts of it was way out in the boonies, but now the city has built up all around and past the loop. Now I cringe whenever we drive on the loop, as people drive so awful and so many wrecks happen on it.

Well, that’s about all I have for today. Have a good one! 🙂

One-Liner Wednesday/JusJoJan the 15th, 2020 – Aesthetic

Anagrams are fun!

***

An anagram is a word or phrase formed by rearranging the letters of a different word or phrase, typically using all the original letters exactly once

***

One of the first games I ever played when I was a kid, was Anagrams. It had square tiles you chose at random, and tried to make words from them.

Here’s a few that turn out cool. I read them in a book. 🙂

  • Astronomers … becomes Moon Starers
  • A Decimal Point … becomes I’m a dot in place
  • New York Times … becomes Monkey’s Write
  • The eyes … becomes They see
