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.

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…
