Buy A Pony – Doodle Poetry

 Pony hug

If you’re ever sad or lonely,
You should buy yourself a pony

He can be your bestest buddy,
Better than a brand new puppy

I had one, then two, then three
They are fun, you will see

When your feeling very down,
Just hop right on and ride around
And Maybe with a bit of luck,
You’ll buy a pony that does not buck

Pony buck

He’ll cheer you up on the saddest day
       He’ll make your troubles melt away
             He’ll teach you patience and he’ll play
                   And just for fun he’ll disobey

Four, then five, then six and seven
My back yards like pony heaven
Eight, then nine, then ten and twenty
Please buy a pony, cause I have plenty

My Shadow

Dragon
Mother.
One shoe drops, when will the other?
Why the cops? Is it my mother?
Please let me stay
Don’t take me away
I promise you now, that I’ll be okay
Then… the shadow moves me into another day

Father.
The past is blurred, through teary eyes
I am unsure, so many “why’s?”
Is it time, to say goodbye?
Protector or foe?
Enemy or No?
Can I trust you? Or shall I go?
Then… the shadow tosses me to and fro

Brother.
Three knocks on the door
He falls weeping to the floor
His wife is now gone
I fear it won’t be long
Until the drugs join him to her song
Then…. The shadow moves me along

Friends.
My phone rings and I cringe
Whats wrong now, my lost friends?
Who has cried?
Who has died?
Who has taken their life, or even tried?
Then….. the shadow moves me across the tide

Sister.
It all seems insane, yet I still fight
My energy is drained, ahead I see no light
Flailing and drowning, my chest is very tight
The river bank seems so much steeper
I’m sinking ever deeper
Am I to be your only keeper?

I cannot Fight, I cannot Flight, I cannot Freeze
All I can do is Nothing
“Shadow! Take me, please”

A Forgetful Poem – Doodle Poetry

stick 4
As a little girl, I tried to run from home
Distracted by the neighbors dog, I stopped to throw the bone
Can’t recall where I was going, so I began to wander home

stick 3
My watch is working fine, a necessary tool
Its Red and Black with spiderman, I think it looks real cool
But I missed the bus today, and now I’m late to school
Remembering to actually WEAR the watch, will now be MY new rule

stick 2
“Which Donut little girl?”, smiled the man behind the glass
“The chocolate one, of course!”, Geesh, did he even have to ask?
“No, wait… the pink one with sprinkles, the chocolate I shall pass”
“No, no, wait… I want the powdered donut”, gosh, choosing feels like such a task
Tapping with my finger, curiously I ask,
“Is this real or Plexiglass?”
Frustrated he repeated “which Donut little girl? I haven’t got all day!”
Smiling at the anxious man, I reply, “I’d like a muffin, If I may?”

Stick 1
Walking down the street, I’m going to go play
Well, at least I think I am?, but I’ve been walking around all day
Or was I suppose to pick up yarn for grandmothers crochet?
Or silk for my mother, to sew her new sachet?
Or perhaps it was for little sis, a yogurt fruit Parfait?
Look at that huge tree, how magnificent it sways!
I better keep on walking, I think I’m headed off to play

——————————- Oh my! ———————
I forgot about this poem, for just a couple weeks
I’d left it in my drafts, so that I could make the final tweaks
But now I cannot recall, how I planned the end
Perhaps you understand? My fellow forgetful friend

Something In the Night Awakes Me

 


Something in the night awakes me.

Blinking my eyes slowly, I struggle to see through the darkness that surrounds my bed.
My breathing is shallow and quick and I can feel my heart as it begins to pound heavy.
Soon I am gripped by fear, completely unable to move, as I realize that my sister and I are no longer alone in the dark.

There is an evil shadow in our room with us.

I can feel him watch me in the dark.
Every muscle in my body is tense.
I want to stand up and bolt from the room yet I can only manage to move my eyes in a failed attempt to scan my black surroundings.
Then I feel the evil crossing the room towards me. I tightly shut my eyes, it hovers over me. I can feel the dark presence around me. Surrounding me.
It begins pressing against my body causing me to sink farther into my bed. I feel heavy with the weight. The air is getting thicker and the force of the shadow pressing down on my chest makes it increasingly difficult for me to find my breath.

My mind is racing now.

Why is he here again?
What does he want with me?

Soon I can barely breathe and I take a couple desperate gulps for air. I can feel my heart pounding thru my chest. I am frozen in fear now, unable to move or call for help, unable to catch my breath.

The shadow grows all around me.

He presses harder on my chest then reaches down deep inside me towards my soul.
Crushing my throat, choking me until…………….

I cannot breath at all

Blog A Day- Sunday Fun Day

— PLEASE CHIME IN W/DATE NIGHT IDEAS —-
Sundays blog is about “Fun”.
We have wrapped up our trip to San Luis Obispo for my husbands graduation from OCS and the 6+ hour drive home is my first chance to spend anytime with him in this whole 5 day trip. Normally long drives wouldn’t be considered my way have having a fun time BUT I’m determined to create opportunities for fun along the way.
– starting with a quick stop by the arcade to watch my son get the high score on one of his favorite games while hubby and I sip on coffee and cocoa.
– next, after being on the road for a short bit we pulled over at the beach and stuck our feet in the sand and shallow waves.
– on the walk back to our car we found an amazing Old Fashioned Cinnamon Roll shop. Yum!! (My sons ultimate favorite)

We will now be spending a few more hours on the road before stopping again. Since Sundays is usually our “date night” I decided, in the spirit of Fun Day Sunday, I would spend a little time brainstorming some future Fun date nights that we can enjoy.

Here is my list so far:
1. Picnic and sand castle building on the beach
2. A hike in the local mountains (maybe with a quick stop along the trail somewhere private 😉
3. Mountain biking with picnic
4. Strip poker (at home, of course)
5. Line dancing lessons
6. Bag pipe lessons (we’re both musicians but have never played bag pipes)
7. Do one of those “fit” courses together that they have in some parks
8. Laser tag
9. Go to one of those arcades that has tickets and cheesy prizes and blow $40 trying to win a stuffed animal 🙂
10. Go to the shooting range together so he can laugh at my attempts to hit a target.
11. Drive In movie theatre
12. Roller skating/blading

What are your Sunday Fun Day ideas?

Blog A Day- Silly Saturday

Today is Silly Saturday but I’m having a hard time finding the silly-ness. I have a very serious day of ceremonies for my husband who is graduating from Officer Candidate School!!! Woohoo!!!
All I can say is “It’s FINALLY going to be over!!”
I am extremely proud of him but I have to admit it has been a rough past year.
I will say that I am finding it rather “Silly” that he has spent until midnight last night preparing with the other candidates, then has to leave the hotel at 5:30am this morning to prepare more for an event that starts at 10:00am. Then will likely be put to work for more duties until the formal dinner tonight and yet, even after that, he will be held longer for final formation etc. etc.
We have been staying at the hotel near base since last Wednesday and In 4 days, I have seen him for a total of 3 waking hours.
Ceremony starting…….. Gotta go!!

A Blog A Day- Fearless Friday

So “fearless” is today’s Blog A Day challenge and as I found myself struggling for something to write about my mind drifted through all the worries of my finances.
Bingo.
Fearless Finances.
I am a very giving person. Giving of my time and my resources and I like that about myself and don’t want to change it.
Here comes the “But”
But…. I have been digging a rather size able financial trench for some time now. It’s deep, dark, ominous and sometimes frightening to me. I spend much of my time looking elsewhere so that I do not have to acknowledge it at all. Unfortunately this blind behavior has given it strength and confidence. It has been growing. Sly sneaking and creeping up behind my back like a serpent. In my lack of acknowledgment it has developed a life of its own and intends on devouring me.
Well, today is Fearless Friday so I am going to face that scary financial trench head on! I am no longer going to give it strength thru my avoidance of it. After all, I have created this trench by being who I am and I don’t regret my decision to help others for an instant.
The trench is MY beast.
I must face it, acknowledge it, own it, collar it and quickly snap a leash on this Dragon before it learns to breathe fire on its own master.
By being Fearless I will gain control!!

What are you Fearless towards this Friday?
