Winter Storm #WinterPoetry January 2016

Winter. Either you love it or you hate it. I really don't think there is an in between for it. I was a huge lover of Winter, nearly my entire life. Then I spent five years in Buffalo, New York, and became the biggest hater of Winter ever. I especially hate snow. I honestly have a very negative reaction to the thought of being in snow. UGH! I lived in Wyoming, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire... all places where it snows quite a bit, and none of it compares to Buffalo snow. Lake Effect snow. Horrible stuff. Absolutely horrible. 

So, as you can see, I am one of those people that hates Winter. I guess it is a good thing, that I now live in California. One thing I can admit, is that snow is beautiful. Some of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen, have included snow. So, even though I hate it, and wish to stay as far away as possible, I can definitely appreciate the beauty of it. The beauty in pictures. 




So, my friends and I decided to write some poetry for y'all to read, using the theme of Winter! I hope you enjoy it all! I will include links to all the participating blogs, at the end! In the meantime, here is my contribution! I hope you enjoy! 


Poem 1:

Fluffy white flakes falling to the ground.
Cold snow mounds all around.
I lay here by the fire, 
missing your sweet hugs that I admire.
Outside the weather is so cold.
Inside is an emptiness caused by love untold.
I miss you with all my heart.
I hate these days we spend apart.
I need you to know how I feel.
I need to stop denying your appeal.
I should just take the chance,
and ask to start a romance.
I know that you want me,
as I have not been deaf to your plea.
Maybe I should stop playing life so safe.
Give you the chance to end my time as a waif.
You told me once I should always let love win.
Would it win if I open my heart and let you in?
Or would I just get hurt and lose?
I really do not know which path to choose.
I could spend the rest of these Winter nights alone.
Letting my heart remain made of stone.
Or I could just go ahead and end this chase.
Open my heart and accept your embrace.
Give you all my love.
Let you serenade me nightly with your Breedlove.
I could find my happy place, inside of you.
Together we can start life anew. 
As I pick up my phone,
not wanting to end this night alone,
I know this is the right choice.
Now I just need to find my voice.
I need to tell you how much I need this.
How much I want your kiss.
Come over I say.
Knowing you'll quickly be on your way.
Tomorrow will be our first.
The day we finally quench our thirst.
Embarking on a new life together. 
Bound as one, we can survive any weather.



Poem 2: 

White snow falling.
Icy roads winding.
New life forming.
Temperatures finally warming.
Everyone ready for Spring to come.
Rivers slowly flowing.


Poem 3:

Snowflakes.
Town schools closing.
Outside it is freezing.
Roads are icy.
Makes me want to hibernate.

  1. 1 is my favorite. You should write poetry all the time. I'm jelly ;-)

    1. Thank you! I do write poetry all the time, I just don't share it! I would say 99.9% of my poetry goes unshared.

    2. Definitely no need to be jealous! You write wonderfully!

  2. The first poem has such a wistful quality, yet is filled with hope.
    The second one made me laugh as we both did that "first letter" thing this month!

  3. I'm not a huge fan of winter either, but you're right: it does look pretty. I guess as long as it snows on the weekend and doesn't mess up my plans I can be okay with it.

  4. Like the playfulness of the last two poems. School closings here in Germany are nonexistent, they will be open unless there is a blizzard. We are slowly adapting to the winters...and I mean slowly. We are expecting snow for the next four days, so I hope to be hibernating too.

  5. I always wonder who you're talking about when you write your love poetry. It's so beautiful, yet full of yearning and unfulfilled desire.

    1. He lives in Chicago. He's one of my best friends, my greatest loves, and my Muse. He hurt me deeply. He also made me happier than imaginable. He's absolutely brilliant. He's a writer. Quite possibly the most intelligent person I've ever know. He's complex. He's very strongly opinionated on basically everything. He and I don't see eye to eye often. He frustrates me beyond belief. He's amazing. I'm so grateful he's apart of my life. He's all I write and so much more.

  6. Wonderful job telling the tale of frozen, star-crossed lovers! The first letter poems were really creatively done, too! Great writing!

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…
