Project 52 – Week 14

Happy Easter

This week our family celebrates the resurrection of our Lord
And I offer blessings for whatever your traditions are

No matter what we name our customs
Togetherness and feasting is the point of

Any cherished holiday

We’ll be having chocolate and eggs
Gathering with family and friends

Hoping that the sun holds true

And I’m also wishing
a Happy Easter to all of you

Project 52 – Week 13

House Shoes

I told Hubby I needed a pair of house shoes
He said, “You mean a pair of slippers?”

No, that’s not what I mean.

I told him there’s something I want to do
It’s kind of different, it’s kind of new

I want a pair of shoes for doing my housework in
I want a pair of shoes to help me feel more productive

Slippers and socks aren’t much help there
Great for comfy and cosy though, sure

But I need a pair of house shoes
To help me to do that much more

He said, “So, go shopping.
I’m not hindering, I’m not stopping.”

Men, pffft…I was having an epiphany
Something he obviously didn’t see

Anyway, so while we were out today
I got these

Thanks to FLYLady for the inspiration.

Project 52 – Weeks 11 & 12

Spring

Winter’s chill recedes quietly into the earth
The winds warm and blow softly

Last autumn’s remnants revealed
In one day, all seasons I can see and feel

And as though the universe wants to prove it true
A crocus appears in bloom

It’s so rare we are blessed with such a thing
20 degrees and not quite Spring

But it feels pretty good and it is rather nice
When only last week we still had ice

This week, a crocus appears in bloom

Project 52 – Week 9

I don’t feel like writing
a poem today

Hope you don’t mind
and that it’s okay

Really, I have nothing
important to say

Project 52 – Week 7

February 15, 2012 § 4 Comments

I’ve been so lax with this project and it’s time to get back on track.  Thanks to Cate @ Moments of Whimsy for hosting this “do what you love once a week” posting.


Solace in my Furriends

A tear escapes my unwilling eye
I don’t want to let show my worry

My concerns are trifle compared to so many
I know in the grand scheme I am a fortunate

My sadness is a blessing
My down and out holds possibility

When so many have it so much harder
When for so many my life is elite

I can still find solace in my furriends
Who are willing to share my weaker moments

They purr, wag their tails, roll on their backs
Their adoration all mine

What I can’t do for the world
I do for them

When the world gets too big for me
I find solace in my furriends

Project 52 – Week Three

January 19, 2012 § 2 Comments

Hosted by Cate @ Moments of Whimsy, Project 52 is about doing something you love once a week and then post about it.  It’s a great way to not only document doing something you love, but also a way to support and encourage each other in doing the same. Nice, eh?

Anyway, I’m a little early this week but I figure since I missed last week’s post, it evens out.  😛

Ankle Biter

I’m walking casually through the room
Unaware of you stalking me
I turn around
Then wince out loud
As you stare from your perch upon my knee

Owwwie, those claws are sharp
Still you stare, while I become ever more aware
Of what’s holding you there

On my knee
Get off of me!!

You flee
And I swear I can hear a faint
“Hehehe”

For kitten lovers everywhere.

Where Am I?
