Easter Egg Skies

Dusky rose and cerulean blue
pastel backdrops of fading light
against frilly tendrils of clouds
I await the coming of the night
Up where the wind blows the clouds
until they billow and furl
twixt starlight and daybreak
lies a magical world
Where there’s barely a day
and hardly no night
there are beings of shadow
and stunning creatures of light
where dragons silently drift
across Easter egg skies
and then disappear
in the blink of an eye

The dawn this morning was all pastel pink buttermilk clouds against the bright blue of morning. Shades like the Easter eggs we colored as kids, delicate and gentle.
Like you.

Colorful Rain

Prompt: Colorful Rain

Rain runs down the sidewalk
through the chalk painting
like colorful rain in rivulets
of brilliant hues and abstract blends
people rush by heads bowed
against the patter of raindrops
they never even noticed
the kaleidoscope of cascading colors
unearthly beauty right before their eyes
unnoticed and disregarded in the rush
to be where they are not
and the clouds continue to weep
at the beauty of colorful rain

Monday Musings – My Soul’s Circles

Truth comes round in circles
all the things we think we know
like the turns of the medicine wheel
become the circles of the soul
the truths we know, in our
hearts and in our minds
are what we hold on to
during troubled times
changing the color of our vision
light the way for love to grow
coming round yet one more time
to form the circles of my soul

Snow Moon

The moon this morning is shrouded in the gossamer fabric of clouds. A welcoming ethereal wonder to my heart and soul. The February moon, Snow Moon. I breathe into her glow as the clouds drift by. She is almost hidden from me, bundled deep in her wrap of clouds and sky. Elegantly fierce and serenely gentle she wraps me in her cool embrace like a older sister bundled in her shawl. For if I am a child of the Earth, is the Moon not my sister? Older, wiser, ageless beauty and timeless elegance. Welcome Sister Moon.

Misty Snow Moon winks
clouds can not cover her glow
drift by silently

Spoonie Lament – Prednisone Purgatory

So it’s been a week. Chronic cough finally reached the “I can’t take it anymore” point and off I went to the Pulmonologist. Surprise, surprise, I’m back on prednisone, a rather heavier dose than I’m accustomed to but the cough was worse than it’s been in years. Feeling much better now but anxious to get back to normal life. If you’ve ever been on steroid therapy you know that it affects every aspect of your day to day life, some good, some bad but always different. So, for now, I’m back on prednisone.

Spoonie Lament – Prednisone Purgatory

Prednisone oh prednisone you gave me
cataracts and several broken bones
but here I am right back on you
’cause the doctors don’t know
what else to do oh yeah
I’m back on prednisone

Prednisone you’re kinda hard on me
you keep me up all night when I shouldn’t be
I drink lots of water for my kidneys
but now it’s three a.m.
and I’ve gotta pee …. again
I’m back on prednisone

Prednisone oh prednisone
your side effects are bad enough alone
you may put me in an early grave
but you sure do make
my immune system behave
so for now, I’m back on prednisone

~Peace Out Peeps, I’m off for a cup of decaf tea ;-p

Mountain Pearls

My prompt for today “Mountain pearls”

Rain drops cling to the bare branches of the tree. Tiny prisms reflecting the scant light like so many shimmering pearls. A kingfisher lands on a branch creating a tiny sparkling cascade. He watches the lake with a hungry intent as the raindrops begin to shimmer anew. Like iridescent mountain pearls they lie elegant against the stark backdrop of a rainy winter day.

Winter rain shimmers
reflecting beauty and grace
while birds sing softly

To Flourish

My prompt today is “Word of the Year” My personal WOTY for 2023 is “flourish”

This is not my year
to just survive
this is not the time
to step aside
not even the time
to simply thrive
Now is the time
my soul to nourish
this is the year
I will finally flourish

2023 the year of the rabbit. The world around me spins crazily out of control. But I have decided that this is my year to flourish. To thrive with some degree of style and grace and so my word of the year is flourish. Recession or no, I will find ways to add beauty and style to my life without breaking the bank, to rediscover frugal joys. I will embellish my already wonderful life with generosity of spirit and joyful gratitude. This is my year to flourish.

Armchair Adventure

I’ve traveled around the world
and places yet unseen
I’ve moved beyond the planets
in search of Stormhold’s queen
I’ve seen Victorian England
in the age where steam was king
then I’m off to Diagon Alley
where a wizard waits for me
I’ve been to urban Chicago
where dark forces breed
as dragons filled the skies of Pern
to save their golden queen
I’ve been to Hobbiton and Narnia
and all the oceans in between
a life filled with adventure
all because I read
