May Flowers #PoetryCollaboration May 2016

If you have been hanging around for a while now, then you know my friends and I like to join together once a month, pick a theme, and provide you with poetry based on that theme. Well, it's that time again, and our theme for May is "flowers"! So here is my contribution. I hope you enjoy! Don't forget to click the links at the bottom, and check out all the awesome contributions from my friends! 

Poem 1: 

Floral reminders of Spring's arrival and Summer's approach.
Lovely fragrances carried with the breeze.
Orange, blue, pink, yellow, white, red, purple, magenta, teal... 
Wide array of colors.
Eager bees happily pollinating gardens. 
Radiant smiles on faces, while admiring the beautiful blooms.

Sunshine spotlighting the beautiful displays of nature's art.

Poem 2: 

Smiles were once a way of life for us.
Unfortunately they have long since been replaced with frowns and tears.
Now we struggle just to tolerate each other's presence.
Friendship long since forgotten.
Love long since lost.
Once strong feelings of desire replace with feelings of disgust.
Whenever I remember the past, I wish I could do it all over. 
Everything did not need to be this way.
Really, we could have done things differently. 

Poem 3: 

You did it again.
You came home with flowers for me.
You are acting like everything is fine, but I know the truth.
You only bring me flowers, when you have been bad.
You think I am clueless and I don't know.
I do know.
I am not clueless.
I know all about her.
I know you love her.
I know you give her all the things you should give me.
Sure, you give me plenty.
This house, money, clothes, shoes, jewelry, and flowers.
Those are not the things I want most though.
I want the things you give her.
I want you.
I want your love, your passion, your admiration, your time, your heart.
Those are the things I really want, but never get.
I don't understand why I am here.
I don't understand why you married me.
I don't understand why you just won't let me leave.
It is obviously her that you want.
I am tired of being the one you give flowers to.
I want to be the one you give yourself to.
I want to be her.

Poem 4: 

I bought you flowers today.
I decided to buy you a plant, so they last longer.
It is a Camellia bush.
I thought it was fitting, since Camellia is the name I almost named you.
It should grow strong and beautiful, just like you would have.
I will plant it in your garden,
It attracts butterflies, which is fitting, since you are my eternal butterfly.
My best memory of you is the butterfly feelings you filled my belly with.
I hope you love your flowers, and truly enjoy them.
I hope they bloom beautifully for you, in your garden.
I hope you love your garden.
I hope it brings a smile to your face, when you look down at it.
I wish you were here to build it with me.
It is my honor to build it in your memory.
I plan to make it beautiful, just like you.
I bought you flowers today.

I hope you enjoyed my contribution to this month's poetry collaboration!! Now, please go check out the awesome poetry gifts from my friends!!

  1. You started me with smiles and ended with tears. Both emotions poetry should evoke. Great job, as always.

  2. The last one is beautiful. I wish I knew who Kateri is. I feel like I missed something, but I'm still sorry for the loss.

Rainbow Colored Glasses #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to March's Blog with Friends Round-up. Each month, a group of bloggers chooses a topic, and then creates blog posts based on that theme. The posts can include anything, from poetry and recipes, to short stories and informative essays, and often crafts or DIY projects. This month's chosen theme is rainbows.

I decided to do a round-up of awesome rainbow finds, that are reasonably priced, and an easy way for your to add more rainbows into your life. I personally love rainbows, and actually enjoy adding them into my life whenever possible. I especially like adding them into Gigi's wardrobe. My inspiration for the title of this post, were a pair of glasses I bought her. Rose colored glasses are cool, but rainbow colored is such a better view! Unless of course you love black, and then I am sorry.

I will be posting links to where you can find the items to buy. However, I encourage you to shop around, and see if you are able to find any better deals. I also want you to know,…

Weather Outside is Frightful #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to February's Blog With Friends round-up!! I have had so much fun joining in, that I decided to tag along for February as well. In case you do not know how it works... A group of bloggers chooses a theme for the month, and then we all create unique posts, based on the same theme. Then we link up together, and provide y'all with a round-up!! The posts can contain anything... Recipes, poetry, short stories, a crafting how to, a DIY how to, and everything in between!! Each month is unique and fun!!

Our theme for February is Winter Activities!! You may be thinking... You are in California, what could you possibly have to contribute about winter activities!? Well, you would be right. LOL. However, I have not lived here my entire life. Plus, I have the unique "joy" of being sensitive to colder temperatures. So, I do have some ideas I want to share, for winter activities that can be done inside, when the weather outside is just too frightful (or in my case too chilly…

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.
