Then Chaos

I originally wrote this way back in June of 2018 but it still (sadly) fits my mood AND although it may be bending the rules a bit to use an old piece, it (more happily) perfectly fits Linda's final JusJoJan prompt "chaos". Thanks Linda. Sorry I wasn't more present in January but ... well you… Continue reading Then Chaos

Paris on my Mind

Dreaming of the past When lanterns blazed the night sky    And stars sparkled bright Illuming a boundless hope For tomorrow’s future   In the midst of all the terrible awful horrible things happening in the good ol' USA, I have been feeling a bit hopeless. I've also been thinking (dreaming) of traveling (escaping). Sadly… Continue reading Paris on my Mind

Upon Reflection

Upon reflection The fruit of the vine consumed the sage inside her Maybe it's because I'm doing Dry January, but my mind immediately went to wine when I saw vine! Anyway ... thanks to Ronovan Writes for the vine/sage prompt and thanks to Linda's Just Jot January Challenge and Janet Smiles for the extra help and prompt (reflection).
