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

Touched for the Very First Time March 2017 #UseYourWords

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked four to six words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That is the challenge, here is a fun twist; no one who is participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

My words are: Tetris ~ Rollerblades ~ Big Hair ~ Rubik’s Cube~ Like A Virgin ~ Neon They were submitted by: Tamara of Confessions of a part-time working mom(Thank you for the awesome words, Tamara. I kinda hate you though. I had two solid plans for this month's words (I NEVER have plans, and this month I had TWO plans), and neither could be applied to these words, so I had to strugggggllllleeeeee..... It's okay, after reconsidering our friendship, I decided I still love you!)
So, I read this month's words, and I immediately transported back t…

The Game of Life Jan 2017 #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to a the first Secret Subject Swap of 2017. This week twelve brave bloggers submitted a secret subject for someone else to use, and were assigned a secret subject prompt of their own. Each blogger gets to use their Secret Subject prompt, to write any blog of their choice. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My “Secret Subject” is: Video games give a chance to escape sort of like reading a book or watching a movie but you, the player, is in control of the story or the actions needed to complete it. As technology advances so have games giving people vast open worlds to play in and characters who are more and more customizability. If you could turn any book, TV show, or movie world into a game what would it be? Lead us on an exploration of what it might be like playing this game (feel free to make up your own world if books, TV, or movies fail to give you a suitable choice).

Best Served Cold #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to June's Secret Subject Swap. This week eleven brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My “Secret Subject” is: Tell us a revenge story, truth or fiction. It was submitted by: Jenniy of (Thank you for such an awesome topic!!)

Revenge is a dish best served cold. That is how it goes, right? They also say revenge is sweet. Cold and sweet. Sounds like sorbet or ice cream. Sounds yummy and sticky. When I read this prompt, I immediately thought of one story. It is really all I ever think of, when I think of revenge. 

This really isn't my story to tell, but I know my friend won't mind me telling y'all, because I have asked permission many times over the years, and she always tells me I can. The she I am talking about, is my friend Opie. She is this amazing woman, who is one of m…
