GRAVEYARD

Graveyard stark

Lonely park

Make your mark

In the dark

Listen…hark…

From deep holes

Shrieking ghouls

Ancient scrolls

Speak of trolls

Come all Souls…

“TRICK OR TREAT’

Cider mulled,

Pumpkins hulled,

Grinning skulls abound…

The night is dandy

To hand out candy,

To little monsters coming ’round.

October Squares – Kind – Kindness Rocks

Standard
October Squares – Kind – Kindness Rocks
Squares Logo

I’ve painted many rocks, called Kindness Rocks, and I leave them all around town for people to find. They are fun to paint and I hope whoever finds them gets a smile or a good feeling from them. I try to make them cute or funny, or just a word or two of something uplifting…such as ‘smile’, ‘hope’, ‘believe’, ‘yes’, ‘peace’, etc. I will also paint a butterfly, or ladybug, or tree, or flower, just anything simple and fun onto the rocks.

Happy Halloween – A Ballad for Jack

***

A Halloween Poem I wrote in 2015

***

A BALLAD FOR JACK

Out in the garden, way in the back,

A tangle of vines did grow.

There was a secret, hidden away,

For only me to know.

I watered and tended this special vine,

And, day by day it grew.

Soon, it revealed an orange orb…

I was the only one who knew.

I was so happy, I talked to it…

In fact, I named him Jack.

He grew up big and strong, that gourd…

I think he liked me back.

Then as the days grew cooler yet,

And, the sun was feeling dim,

I wanted Jack to stay with me,

But, it was time to part from him.

And, so it came, that sad, sad day…

Jack said it would be fine…

I took my knife and severed him…

I cut him from the vine.

I cried a river, but through my tears,

Jack looked at me and smiled…

He said to carve a great big grin,

For every little child.

And, so I did, I carved a face

For Jack’s big orange head.

Now, every Halloween night that comes,

Jack’s eyes shine bright, instead.

Thank you so much, Mws R , for nominating me for the Random Acts of Kindness award! Very much appreciated that you’d think of me for this! 🙂

You can find her lovely blog at the above link!

There are lots of little everyday things a person can do to show kindness to others. Even if you’re just being nice, the other person is appreciative of this, whether they tell you or not, I think. These could be as simple as holding open a door for someone, complimenting them for their clothes or hairstyle, letting someone go ahead of you in line somewhere, or just plain old listening…really listening to someone, and caring about what they are saying – not thinking random thoughts when they are speaking, waiting for your turn to talk. I try to do all of these on many occasions.

I’ve painted many rocks, called Kindness Rocks, and I leave them all around town for people to find. They are fun to paint and I hope whoever finds them gets a smile or a good feeling from them. I try to make them cute or funny, or just a word or two of something uplifting…such as ‘smile’, ‘hope’, ‘believe’, ‘yes’, ‘peace’, etc. I will also paint a butterfly, or ladybug, or tree, or flower, just anything simple and fun onto the rocks.

Here are few photo of some:

I painted some rocks to look like cacti plants in a flower pot. Cricket just had to come investigate what these odd things were. 🙂

Hmmm…what could this be?

I’ll give it a sniff…well, it doesn’t smell like anything.

I’ll give it a nice face rub, and call it mine.
