The Sun Sets on Us #PoetryCollaboration June 2016

Hello and welcome to this month's poetry collaboration!! My friends and I, have chosen sun as our theme, for this month!! Since June marks the official start of Summer, it seems like a fitting theme. I hope you enjoy what we have for you!! 

Poem 1: 

Shining down from above
Ultraviolet rays of warmth
Never ceasing to rise again.

Poem 2: 

Your smile is as bright as the sun.
It can light up an entire room.
It beckons to me, from across the most crowded of spaces.
It puts smiles on all surrounding faces. 
It weaves you into everyone's good graces.
It alleviates any feelings of gloom.
Your smile is as bright as the sun. 

Poem 3:

I thought we would spend forever together. 
Two lovers living in wedded bliss.
Then the sun set on us.
Our love ended.
Our happily ever after was voided.
Our bliss went amiss.
Our bright future turned dark. 
Our paths split apart. 
Our futures shattered along with my heart.
I thought we would spend forever together.
Two lovers living in wedded bliss.
Then the sun set on us.

Here are the contributions from my friends!! Check out the awesomeness they have to share with you!!

  1. Way to go, three poems this month! You rocked it! Number 2 is my favorite. Have a great weekend! :)

  2. You always provide such a diverse selection of poetry, from light and hopeful to melancholy, your words cover all the bases.

    1. Thank you for noticing. I actually like and hate that about my poetry. LOL

  3. WHY why why can you crank out 3 poems each month and I desperately struggle with one? LOL
    I like 2 the best.

    1. It's because I write poetry almost daily. I'm so in the habit of writing it. Plus, you may not have quantity, but you always have quality.

  4. I like

    Your smile is as bright as the sun

Duke #FunnyFriday

Welcome to this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write five captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture.

Here’s today’s picture. It was submitted by Minette of Southern Belle Charm.

1. Duke: Just five more minutes!
2. Duke: You want me to walk further?! That will cost you a Milk bone.
3. Duke: Mommmm, whyyyyyyy?! Can we just stop walking now?! Do we really need to walk more?! I mean, we have to be a solid ten feet from the porch. That is enough walking right?!
4. Duke: If you insist on bringing me to the vet, you will have to carry me. I will not aid in this. The last time you took me there, well, we just won't discuss that.
5. Duke: Must take a quick nap. That Thanksgiving feast wore me out. So. Much. Chewing.

New Year, Same Me. #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to January's Blog with Friends post! I once again decided to join in, and give it my best shot. How does it work? A group of bloggers select a topic, and create a blog post based on that topic, and then join their posts together in a round-up. This month, we are all creating posts based on the topic of resolutions. The posts can include any number of things, from crafts and recipes, to informative writing, to fictional writing, and anything in between.

How do you feel about resolutions? Do you make them? Do you keep them? Do you skip them? I tend to make some, and I tend to do a decent job at keeping some of them. I tend to take a more relaxed view on them, and shoot more for goals than resolutions. I also do not let myself stress over them. I feel if it becomes stressful, that defeats the purpose.

Well, for 2018, I have decided to take them a bit more seriously. I have put some thought into it, and come up with some things I really want to accomplish, improve, or change i…

Saved by Angel Payne #BookReview

I recently read Angel Payne's latest release, and let me tell you, it was not a disappointment. I will start by saying, if you are not into BDSM themed books, than you may just want to skip this one. BDSM is woven throughout the story, and it may be hard to ignore.

Now, if you don't mind BDSM, military hotties, romance, suspense, and action... This is definitely a book you want to read right away. The plot is entertaining and well thought out. The characters are interesting and well developed. The ending is steamy hot, and qualified for a HEA status.

This book offers plenty of steaminess, lots of action and suspense, and just enough intrigue to keep you guessing. We work through the characters struggles, both with major events that happen, with their relationship with their inner selves, and with their relationship with each other. This book has something for everyone.

Now, if you maybe don't love BDSM, but you can tolerate it, I would recommend you give this book a try. I…
