A Fourth to Remember

Joy!
Wa-hoo!
Today’s the day!
Buzzing with excitement
We’re celebrating indoors today!
My owner created a scavenger hunt for me
She hid some delectable treats throughout the house
Pop a tunnel of floating bubbles along the way
Canine peanut butter, vanilla cookie treats
Await me at the end of the obstacle
An excursion to the back patio
Fetching a squeaky ball
My owner loves me
No fireworks
Tender
Care

Word of the Day: Excitement

#A2Z – Burj al Arab (quadrille/cinquain)

Listen
Near string quartet
Enjoying 3-toned drink
Seeking closure from past mistakes
Sharp shame

Burj Al Arab
Shields from disappointment
From its opulent interior
New life

Painting Landscapes with Bob Ross

It’s the imperfections that make something beautiful. That’s what makes it different and unique from everything else.

– Bob Ross

Last night, I enjoyed digitally painting alongside Bob Ross for the first time. His soothing voice helped quell any anxiety as he takes you away to a fantasy world of luscious landscapes. Bob also said that as you’re painting, you can create a story along the way. So, I will link up to Denise, author of Girlie on the Edge’s Blog for her Six Sentence Story word prompt.

Invigorated by the fleeting, fresh smell of pine, Mirela admired the radiance rippling across the lake during her morning stroll in the fields while munching on her croissant breakfast egg and ham sandwich.

Mirela vanquished her fear of unknown and retreated to the mountains, a dream destination, away from the noise and bustle of the city life she’s been in the thick of for decades.

The care of her sanity was treated with high priority during a tumultuous time in history, so the guidance of her heart has led her and her husband to this peaceful place.

She enjoys the quiet moments of checking out the woodland creatures scurrying away to their homes holding food tightly to their chest while hiking her way through the woods.

As she came back from her brisk walk, her husband had just finished chopping wood to add to the crackling fire on the hearth of the fireplace.

They walk into the cabin together preparing to drink a glass of delicious wine and feast on some delicious pot pie.

#SoCs – What’s Beside Me Right Now? – A Lesson from a Cloud

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”

Rabindranath Tagore
#SoCs – Beside you

Hello there!
Today’s prompt for Stream of Consciousness from Linda G. Hill is: “…write about whatever is beside you when you read this prompt. Not when you sit down to write, but whatever is beside you right now. Take note of it if you think you might forget. Enjoy!

So, I read this prompt while jogging in a deserted field area this afternoon. Em from Earthly Brain shared a prompt as well: “ If I could learn a lesson from the clouds, it would be …“. An impromptu poem materialized in my head. Enjoy!

Nubivagant

Puffy cotton balls reflecting brilliant light
Today I greet the day as it comes
Drifting along with the wind

It’s somewhat difficult for me
to play hide-and-go seek
as I often gleam behind nature

No matter though, Sunny and I
Our friendship is billions of years old
Together on the best and worst of days

A generous spirit today
Frolicking among you
Revealing a wondrous site

If I could write a letter to my body, it would say …

Dear Delicate Vessel of Mine,

You’re an absolute mystery to me
Waking up to a bold, astringent black tea
As you relish a reading from the Code of DaVinci
Skin tingling to the sight of the coral sea

Hands enable such meticulous notes
Empowering the mind within to vote
Legs traversing far and wide
In a march to express one’s pride

A dedicated immune system army
Attacking bacteria on a hellish landscape
Fever scorches the battle field journey
Host defense system seeks an escape

Despite the strength you have some days,
Help is needed to get through the maze
No need to fight imaginary hallucinations
After donning the armor of medications

Confiscate the germ
You set the terms
As it squirms
Be firm!

Appreciatively,
A Grateful Heart

Wearing Bright Clothes on Tough Days

Hi – I had a series of tough days recently. 2 weeks of persistent flu symptoms. I’ve been reading blog posts related to flu, getting better, & news. Thanks, as it’s been enlightening and helpful. 🤓

Details.. another time. Nitemares.. another time.. As that might weaken me. Just want to focus on getting better. Docs helping me.

A while back I took these snapshots. Bohemian flare. Texan cowboy style. A yellow dress that reminds me of one I wore in a high school dance.

#Haiku- Adventure Awaits

Cool journey ahead|Pet llama is just chilling |Chic wardrobe, new groove

#Haiku- Dancing Dame

Lemon-colored dress | Swirling at the rodeo | Blooming under stars

Good night everyone! Rest well and Ill see you again when I feel healthy. 🤠🌻🌃
