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

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…

Boredom, Boredom Go AWAY! #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to July's Blog with Friends Round-up!! Each month, a group of bloggers join Karen from Baking in a Tornado, and pick a theme for the month. Then each blogger creates a post, based on that theme. Posts can include anything the blogger wants. You may find poetry, recipes, short stories, DIY projects, crafts, informative posts, and anything else a blogger may choose. It is just a fun way, for us to all give our own take on a given theme.

This month's theme is Anti-Boredom Month. Did you know that July is National Anti-Boredom Month? I did not know this, until we were researching themes for our BWF posts. I think it is an excellent idea for Summer. I know when I was growing up, the most boredom I encountered, was usually in the Summer. The rest of the year, I would be so busy with school and activities, I did not have time to be bored. Then Summer would hit, and after the excitement wore off, the boredom would come visit regularly. 

I decided to compile a lists of activities…
