Reversal bottom top process

Sheer luck mid-week address thankful remain up
Yeah, still time recover self – assignment makeup

Procrastinate excuse minimize follow self-criticize

Search pages items purchase personal hard find

Cooking for one often challenge necessities buy
Especially during down-size actual needs supply

Desire app usage pay online not always welcome

Little struggle transaction finally complete
Another win for me – receive e-mail receipt

Sheer luck smiles accompany double dose tea.

Dismisses ‘weepiness’ fail hire presume

Preparedness quite important business world
Unfortunate attempt mislead worn-out ‘bittersweet’ fizzled

SoCS: June 12th 2021

prompt: drive

Finally found drive blog more often
Lucky me wi-fi connection malfunction

Early morn felt pangs internet defeat
Cable provider proud occupant driver’s seat

Amazing technology still scads inability control
Shopping trip cool off cessation feeling blood boil

Creative gal love crochet items since back-in-day
Drive near hour specific brand yarn sale underway

Unfamiliar territory avoid traffic side street turn off
Lucky me, a one-way and ahead approaching car – city cop


Flagged pullover in progress driver warning heeds
Overgrown tree branches hid traffic sign politely she pleads

Rethink out-of-town sales option save shopper oodles cash
Fortunate day honest error, no GPS, result drive humongous laugh.

Difficult Times

Unbelievable!!

Sitting before computer feeling numb

Decorated Police Sergeant crossed over

Age 52 battle with Covid-19 succumb

Those left behind now broken-hearted

Grief journey begins mourning departed

A firm believer in the Lord questions


Online she watches funeral procession

For those who actually live with someone

Give thanks no idea feeling nights lonesome

Please don’t complain about caddy stuff

Result older woman possibility high throw up

Those who have lost loved ones understand me


Fact two children reside in Heaven unknowns quickly flee


Lately I wonder why God chose a keep me here plan


Renewed zest for living follow major operation stolen

Prepared emotionally,, spiritually obvious not chosen time

Aftermath prisoner intrusive thoughts spite ne’er commit crime

Down-trodden broken-hearted alone this cruel world daily face

Ask Lord reveal reason why actual timing deceit surface

Anger, bitterness ‘n resentment overwhelm
ed fight depression

Inner struggle desire overcome worse should go route confession

No idea if occasional writing reading between lines posts still therapeutic

Guess best keep quiet refrain reveal truth late stage in life serves no purpose

To divulge dirty secrets cause much personal familial strife
and critique

My cross to bear non-wish others burden thanks to real life reveal composer

Golabki (Polish Stuffed Cabbage Rolls)

Prompt Challenge #20 – Banging Out a Dish

What’s for supper?
A daily question posed to mothers

Memories night opted for golabki leftovers
Yesterday’s extra casserole dish no bother

Decision heat low flame on range top
Soon out of nowhere heard large pop


Walk to kitchen found quite exploded mess
Whatever happened unknown must confess

No idea earlier choice outcome be so wrong
Claim stupidity only nobody previous inform

Never place certain heating dishes on range
Potential heated aftermath worse than strange

Clean up process definite took quite some time

Contents cabbage rolls ‘n broken dish sight begrime

Imagine question posed again ‘what’s for supper
Answer seek pizza parlor’s menu call in takeout order!

Valentine’s Day – 2021

Compassionate man
Earlier this week text me
Hospitalized complications exam
Worries, intrusive thoughts outcome be

Words written read great concern
Amid penned ones usual pleasantness
Overall picture painted thus far bit grim
Five years platonic friends shared secrets life’s messes

Questions posed self remain unanswered
Perhaps, what ifs dance for hours through thou head
Prayers unspoken hopeful quality medical services rendered
Unfathomable good-hearted soul alone lies day ‘n night hospital bed

Valentine’s day amorous couples fortunate observations
Beautiful aromatic flowers, boxed chocolates dinner for two
Types love Bible states four, psychology today states seven
Five years shared goodwill thankful ne’er led to precarious situation

Today’s morn’s text contents words inclusive quality time together
Fact resembles deceitful husband reason never consider love relationship
Decade alone still constant overthink feel down the road both deserve better
Proceed with caution unwilling sabotage priceless half-decade friendship




SoCS: October 3rd ’20

Today’s prompt: new / old

New incoming notifications this morn viewed
Requests similar same old – scarcely any new

Beyond tired last month’s company’s methods
Thoughts directly passed east to west thru head

Aware reaction best what-to-do prioritize
Short list imperatives thou proceed devise

Decision leave fresh start brand new outlook
Chose hour indulge read pages selected book


Participation exercise help old physique shrink

Bit later in day writing while still capable think

Process save ‘n some deletion near three years work
Polite farewell old woman no wish continue road driven berserk
