WEEKEND THOUGHTS:


 WEEKEND THOUGHTS:

Having done reflections on

"The Challenge A to Z."

I thought this weekend I would reflect,

On the life of "Me".


To see how thoughts and actions are

With some lockdown restriction still in force.

Whether I am coping well,

Or putting the cart before the horse.


I still need the confidence

To venture out comewhat may.

But bodily pain and my epilepsy

Have plagued me day by day.


I'm still awaiting to get to the hairdressers,

I look a dreadful sight.

With thinning hair on top of my head,

And it being completely white.


As I have to venture out alone,

No one  to be by my side.

I shall be reflecting how to overcome this

And my fear I must eventually hide.


Whatever your plans for the weekend,

May they all be successful and fine.

Should you be venturing out,

I hope it's in the sunshine.


HAPPY WEEKEND:

THE IWSG MAY 2021:


THE INSECURE WRITER'S  SUPPORT GROUP:

Welcome to May everyone to this wonderful group.

I hope all is well and happy.

Thanks go to Alex founder of the group and all

the members to ensure it'ssmooth running:

 

MY WRITING:

I first began to "Write " poetry,

When widow hood came my way.

I found I could express myself,

My thoughts and feelings comewhat may.

 

I mainly write about the happenings

That occur in family and my life.

Poems of sheer happiness,

Many of toil and strife.

 

Then over the years my writing

Took a turn no less.

I've had four books published.

Which suprised me I confess.

 

Special mentions must go to Alex,

And to Arlee Bird.

Who wrote on all my books

Most welcomed on their blurbs.

 

Also another thing suprised me.

That my favourite singer Danny Boy.

He too wrote on the blurbs,

Filling my heart with joy.

 

I  would like to thank everyone

Who continue to read my post.

Being a lonesome person these days,

Certainly gives me a boost.

 

HAVE A GREAT MONTH:

REFLECTIONS OF THE A TO Z CHALLENGE 2021:


 REFLECTIONS OF THE A TO Z

CHALLENGE 2021:

Today I gather my thoughts

On the challenge A to Z.

How taking part again,

And what it meant to me.


This year I wrote about my travels,

I have taken during my life.

Trying to escape the present situation,

That's been causing tears and strife.


I had been finding it hard,

To concentrate on my blog.

Appears my mind continued.

To be in forever in a fog.


I had to prove to myself,

That by taking part.

I may again get some joy into my life,

Also within my heart.


Well I did finish the challenge,

Wasn't so active though on commenting,

Although I did get many comments myself,

That is how I see the "Reflecting".

 

I thank all who commented,

I say that without a doubt.

But with arthritic  painful hands,

I was unable to return my comments out. 

 

My thanks go to all concerned

Whose good work thoughout the year.

Made this a successful challenge,

Dispelling my many fears.

 

Now the challenge is over

Enjoy the month of May.

To each and everyone who reads this,

May health and happiness come your way.

BEAUTIFUL SUNDAY:


 BEAUTIFUL SUNDAY:

The early morning sun,

Awoken me from my sleep.

Wondering what today will bring,

What memories I will keep.


After an early breakfast,

Fed the stray cats outside my door.

It's such a beautiful morning.

Who could ask for more.


This weekend is extra long,

A public holiday tomorrow will be.

Wondering whether many visitors will arrive.

Getting a glimpse of my beloved sea.


A sea I haven't seen for a while,

But hopefully soon will rectify that.

All this going through my mind,

As I stood there feeding the cats.


I sincerely hope your Sunday,

Will be beautiful as well.

Spring is well and truly here,

That to you I can tell.


HAVE A WONDERFUL SUNDAY:

WELCOME TO MAY:


 WELCOME TO MAY:

Another weekend is here also a new month.

A month full of happiness and being able to cope.

To cope  with what life may deal us.

And above all to have hope.


The weather  here is lovely,

Flowers beginning to bloom.

Albeit I only see them,

In the comfort of my room.


This month for me is special,

In the family are three birthdays no less.

Quite an expensive time.

To you I will confess.


With the A to Z Challenge over,

I will have more time on my hands.

Thinking about whatever the situation is

In those faraway lands.


HAAPY WEEKEND AND A LOVELY MAY:

THE A TO Z CHALLENGE 2021:.......Z

THE A TO Z CHALLENGE 2021:

Well friends this is the final day of yet another

challenge, thanks for all the comments.

Have a good day 

Z is forZEST AND ZERO:

 

We spent a day at New York City,

What a day is turned out to be.

The first place we visited was a sad one,

It was Gound Zero, site of America's Tradgedy.

 

As we stood and surveyed the scene (pic above)

Tears filled everyone's eyes.

So much different seeing it close up,

Amid the grey skies.

Later we went around Central Park,

Yours truly pictured above.

Filled with so many lovely sights,

That I fell I love.

Then outside the restuarant we met up

With this American Sailor.

A great time was had by all.

I couldn't say anything fairer.

Then I had my photo taken

With him alone as you can see.

A wonderful time I was having.

Oh, lucky me. 

 

Having a zest for life and happiness

Our last concert for a while.

Yet another picture with Daniel,

He certainly made me smile.

 

Well there are zero letters left,

In this Challenge A to Z.

I hope you enjoyed  the memories.

That are very precious to me.

THE A TO Z CHALLENGE 2021:......Y

THE A TO Z CHALLENGE 2021:

Y  IS FOR YVONNE AT YOSEMITE NATIONAL 

PARK:

After saying goodbye to San Francisco,

Which I wrote about earlier this week.

We climbed on to the coach,

New views we were going to seek.

 

Once out of the city,

It was very barren land.

The sun had dried all the rivers

Making wildlife very bland.

 

We travelled through the desert,

Joshua trees appeared now and then.

Mountains all so evident,

Been there since heaven knows when.

We at last reached our destination,

Yosemite National Park.

The scenery was breath taking,

Our moods, happy as a lark.

                                       

The sight was so awesome,

We disembarked our coach.

To take in the wonderful scenery,

Drinking water for parched throats.

Many mountains still had snow on their peaks,

As the snow suddenly thawed,

It was a sight to behold

As we witnessed cascading water falls.

 

The highness of the mountains

Against the running of thawing snow.

It reminded me of the beginning of the world,

Millions of years ago.
