2 in 1 – Unfinished


2 in 1 – Unfinished


Here’s a poem I wrote back in 2015. I was trying something different by having the couplets divided by words opposite of what the main poem was saying.



Quietly, quietly drift the clouds

Far above Earth’s rowdy crowds


Parading stately across the sky

Painting paradise in our eye


Take a moment to gaze above

Fill your senses with peace and love


Imagine floating without a care

Our mortal souls are free up there


Beauty does our eyes behold

Orange, pink, and nature’s gold


Sunrise, sunset, and in between

Starry nights, a moonlit gleam


Dream along, embracing peace

Praying for all war to cease


Pure air inhale, life’s true incense

Live and love your truth…intense…

Halloween Challenge 2022 – Forest & Haunted


Halloween Challenge 2022 – Forest & Haunted




For yesterday & today 🎃

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


Halloween decoration – Black haunted house with ghosts

Lost and Lonely


Spirit roams

Lost and lonely

Searching for the soul

You feel it’s wandering

Lost and lonely

Foggy thoughts not whole

Spirit weeps in confusion

Illusion – delusion

Lost and lonely

Drifting in the evernight

Will you not give Spirit solace

Guide him to everlasting light

My photo of a foggy night with a light shining through

Fatty Batty – Halloween Challenge 2022 – Bats


Fatty Batty – Halloween Challenge 2022 – Bats 


Thanks so much for hosting this fun challenge again this year, Jennifer!


Bat on Google Noto Color Emoji

Among the hanging colony

There dwelled a little bat

He was a mighty hunter who

Nightly munched on gnats

He ate and ate, he could not stop

In fact he was about to pop

But instead he just got fat.


Cute little bat that used to play music when you pushed his belly

The mealy mouthed Monster

Was certainly a sight

He tried and he tried to cause a fright

With a stutter and groan

He began to moan

But finally gave up and went home

Welcome back, Melanie! Thanks so much for the SYW questions! ❤


Would you rather have no nose, or no arms? (apologies to Fandango, who is olfactory challenged)..

I don’t want to be without either one.

What is your spirit animal?  (Mine –>  🐺  Lone of course  😉  )

***See painting and poem below

My spirit animal is the Tiger! I’ve known this since I was a kid. My birth year is in the year of the Tiger, and I had many dreams where a tiger would come to tell me so. Of course I couldn’t have a real tiger for a pet, but cats will do just fine.

Do you think cavemen had nightmares about cavewomen?   🥍  💪🏼😱

Who knows, dreams are strange and I imagine some would be about this.

Where did the name Pina Colada come from?   (for those out of the know of foo-foo drinks, a ‘pina colada” is rum, pineapple and coconut juices and sometimes fancier liquor for a bigger kick (with a paper umbrella sometimes)   🍹🍸   Since I dislike coconut except in the odd Mounds bar or on shrimp; I never had one. 
I’ve never drank one of these but it sounds good, but without the alcohol. Where it came from I have no idea – maybe a tropical island or somewhere.

This is a picture I painted a long time ago.

I’ve always known the tiger is my spirit animal.

This is a poem I wrote about it years ago.



In misty dreams you came to me

When I was only two or three

A forest dark, and deep, and green

I wondered what my dreams could mean

You were my friend, my Spirit kin

A guardian without, a guardian within

I was born into your year

Tiger Spirit always near

Magnificent eyes, shining bright

I weep at what now’s your plight

Endangered in this cruel world

Victim of the weapons hurled

If only we could be at peace

Return to dreams without surcease

To that mystery forest in the night

We could try to again make it right

I know that you will always be

In my dreams

A part of me

So for today’s SOC prompt we are to use or talk about words that have silent letters in them. Thanks, Linda! 🙂

A dumb poem:

knick knack paddy whack, knit a knight a sack

heard on the gnus tonight the knight is coming back

he had a knack for knitting and was in the knead of yarn

his horse neighed and gnawed as he kicked in the barn

and if it was left up to me,

this is one of the dumbest things i ever wrote
