It’s time for me to pick a fictitious name in order to tell
my story, hopefully in an untraceable manner void of
outside interference with end result cathartic finally.
I rarely write explicitly with regard to personal life. I have
placed content within poems – no actual reveals. This allows
readers vast room for thoughts.
If I can help even one person who has experienced same
or similar I feel I’ll have accomplished what I originally set
out to do before I became sidetracked, questioning myself
Why should I ~ Why shouldn’t I . . . It’s 100 percent truth.
Today’s prompt: prepare
Days prior to Blizzard 2022
People started to make preparations.
Supermarkets with overflowing shopping carts
Lines at the gas pumps
Prepare, Prepare, Prepare
Yes, I did my groceries ahead of the crowd.
Yes, I put the now overpriced gasoline in my vehicle.
Yes, I placed all trash in the hopper.
All to do was sit and wait out the storm.
Yesterday the day of the storm
The power went out ~ apartment near total darkness
Luckily, I’d had my hot tea beverage prior to outage.
When I accessed my portable radio, I found no sound.
And ‘C’ batteries which it required were not in the drawer.
It reminded me of when I go shopping without a list, it’s
inevitable I forget at least one item.
Lesson learned: check ALL for correct size batteries.
Today’s word prompt: looking
The past few days I’ve been looking for opportunities to supplement
I was flabbergasted when I read about the success of a 19-year-old
who currently is earning big bucks from a crafts business she started
little over a year ago.
Yes, twas hard for me to comprehend since during my tenure of life
I’d dabbled in the same Hobbie.
Bravo to the young lady from the UK!!
Me? I shall continue looking and conduct research in hopes of a
last chance at success.
In light of recent events, the gal who refuses to give up her final goal
in life has chosen to prioritize where, how and with whom she spends
quality time, a much-needed precedent to change title following her name
from ‘writer’ to ‘author’ before the local New Year’s Authors’ convention.
Today’s prompt: list
A new month – a new list
For my own personal emotional state I chose to take a hiatus from blogging, a decision
I’d considered and voiced a few months ago.
I wrote about the sudden newest reasons then decided to delete them.
Truth is there’s little I can do other than accept that which I have no control thereof.
Back to the prompt ‘list’:
I need to find time to review my notifications and thank new followers.
Those who don’t follow guidelines with regard to likes, comments and follows
I intend to unfollow them.
The same decision stands for those with inappropriate content in their posts.
This process will likely take time and organization.
I’m hoping when I finish I’ll be blessed again with the inspiration to write.
Just because someone doesn’t love you in the way you want them to,
doesn’t mean that they don’t love you with all they’ve got.

Several hours prior dawn
Darkness sit alone forlorn
Time daylight hours away
Overcome lack sleep pray
New segmented sleep pattern
Unfortunate older folk happen
Certain appear out-of-order
Wish become sleep hoarder
Resident apartment complex
Unable noisy whenever wish
Reluctantly turn lamps on
Minutes later glasses worn
Scribble notes writers' form
Concentration written poem born
Sudden widen mouth yawn begin
Follow tear-filled eyes origin
Signal exhaustion sleep please
Coverlet warm thankful more ZZZs.
