This is a poem I wrote back in 2015, about the Tiger, which has always been my spirit animal.

I was born in a Tiger year!

~

TIGER

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, within…

I was born into your year, your Tiger Spirit

Always near. Magnificent eyes, shining bright, I

Weep at what now is 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 make it right. I know that you will

Always be, in my dreams…a part of me … Tiger…my Spirit Animal …<3

My painting of a tiger

***

My mom’s painting of a tiger

Starting off with a slower song. As I was looking for Tiger songs I found this one, which is a new one for me. I really like it though, as it does remind me of my tiger dreams that I began having when I was very little.

“Tiger in the Night”, by Katie Melua, is on her 2003 album, ‘Call Off the Search”. The music and lyrics are by Mike Batt.

You are the tiger burning bright
Deep in the forest of my night
You are the one who keeps me strong in this worldYou sleep by the silent cooling streams
Down in the darkness of my dreams
All of my life I never knew
You were the dream I’d see come true
You are the tiger burning brightI was the one who looked so hard I could not see
Now I could never live without the love you give to meI lived like a wild and lonely soul
Lost in a dream beyond control
You were the one who brought me home down to earthFor you are the tiger burning bright
Deep in the forest of my night
All of my life I never knew
You were the dream I’d see come true
You are the tiger burning bright

This song probably everyone has heard, and it’s a good one. She sings of being afraid, but then taking on the courage of the Tiger, and surviving all kinds of adversities that life may throw her way…with spirit and conviction that she will make it through.

“Roar”, by Katy Perry, was released from her album, “Prism”, in 2013. It was written by Katy Perry, Bonnie McKee, Lukasz Gottwald, Max Martin, and Henry Walter, and is on the Capitol label.

Verse 1]
I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath
Scared to rock the boat and make a mess
So I sat quietly, agreed politely

I guess that I forgot I had a choice
I let you push me past the breaking point
I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything

[Pre-Chorus]
You held me down, but I got up (hey)
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, your hear that sound
Like thunder, gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready cause I had enough
I see it all, I see it now

[Chorus ]
I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter
Dancing through the fire
Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar

[Post-Chorus]
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
You’re gonna hear me roar

[Verse 2]
Now I’m floating like a butterfly
Stinging like a bee
I earned my stripes
I went from zero, to my own hero

[Pre-Chorus]
You held me down, but I got up (hey)
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, your hear that sound
Like thunder, gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready cause I had enough
I see it all, I see it now

[Chorus]
I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter
Dancing through the fire
Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar

[Post-Chorus]
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
You’re gonna hear me roar

[Post-Chorus]
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
(You’ll hear me roar)
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
You’re gonna hear me roar

[Bridge]
Roar, roar, roar, roar, roar…

[Chorus]
I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter
Dancing through the fire
Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar

[Post-Chorus]
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
You’re gonna hear me roar

[Post-Chorus]
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
(You’ll hear me roar)
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
You’re gonna hear me roar

Time again for questions from Melanie for Share Your World. Thanks so much for hosting this fun weekly challenge, Melanie!

***

Why is it called “beauty sleep” when one wakes up looking like a troll??

Why do they sterilize needles for lethal injections?

Why do most cars have speedometers that go up to at least 130 when you legally can’t go that fast on any road?

Did they purposely make dyslexia hard to spell?

(Rather naughty):  If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests?

*********

What are some things that are okay to do occasionally but definitely not okay to do every day?

Go to an amusement park?

What is the most embarrassing thing you have ever worn?

Maybe a Halloween costume? But, I wasn’t embarrassed to wear any of them, because it was fun.

Oh…here’s one from when I was a kid in elementary school. I had a dress I couldn’t stand, but my mom made me wear it anyway, even if it did embarrass me. It had these things on the shoulders that I though made me look like a hefty football player.

Another dress I had that I didn’t like had a blue tie in the front…I thought it made people think I was a boy wearing a tie. Ugh! So…I ripped it so bad that I didn’t have to wear it again.

In your opinion, what’s the best type of cheese?

Queso! This is a melted cheese dip you eat with crispy tortilla chips.

What are some fun ways to answer everyday questions like “how’s it going” or “what do you do”?

“It’s going” … “Fair to middling” … “Fine as frog hair” …


Miscellaneous:

Have you ever sent a text message to the wrong person?   Details please.

Yes. The only people I ever text to is my two daughters. On the phone I sometimes pull up the other one than the one the text is for. Example, just the other day I sent a fun joke to one, but the other one got the text. They both liked it, though. 🙂

I’ve also gotten texts from people I don’t know! I got invited to a party in another state one time. It had the time and address on the text. I did text them back, saying sorry, I can’t make the party, as you texted the wrong person! haha 🙂

If you could make a rule for a day, and everyone had to follow it, what would it be?

I’d make everyone sing their words all day, like in a musical.

You are about to get in a fight, what song comes on your mind soundtrack?

I’d never get into a fight, but how about “Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor.

Since the Tiger is my Spirit Animal, I like the title and the lyrics of this song, and I’m sure my Tiger would help me in any fight.

***

“Eye of the Tiger”, by Survivor, was released from their albums, “Eye of the Tiger”, and “Rocky III”, in 1982. It was written by Jrankie Sullivan and Jim Peterik.


Share a joke, if you know a good one!

Knock Knock

Who’s there?

Rice

Rice who?

Rice and shine, sleepy head! 🙂

***

Say this out loud:

I slit the sheet, the sheet I slit, and on the slitted sheet I sit. 🙂

RDP #72 – Cat

https://ragtagcommunity.wordpress.com/2018/08/11/rdp-72-cat/

***

I’ve been meaning to do these Ragtag Daily Prompts, so for my first one today, the word is ‘cat’, and well, I love cats of all kinds.

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.

~

Tiger

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

TIGER

Standard

Hi, again! Today is the 5th day of writing poems for the Daily Post, Writing 201: Poetry course. Suggested to try, was the Concrete Poem, the enjambment, and an animal …

Well, I couldn’t figure out how to do the Concrete shape (a poem written so that it forms a shape of something), so just went with the poem form of enjambment, which means to continue a sentence or thought onto the next line, and the animal part was easy.

However, here is a picture of a Tiger, that I painted a  long time 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

Spirit kin…a guardian without, within…

Be at peace…return to dreams without surcease, to that mystery
