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!!

  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.

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.

Mother Earth #UseYourWords

Welcome to July's Use Your Words post! 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: bat ~ environment ~ foreshadow ~ lonesome ~ oddly They were submitted by: http://theblogging911.com/blog
I am typing this on my new Chromebook. I got it dirt cheap on Amazon Prime Day. I am not trying to brag, but I am a fast typist, and make very few typos. However, In just these last few lines, I have made about a million typos. Change may be nice, but sometimes it takes a bit to get used to. Oy. So, please bear with me. Oddly, despite not liking change and fighting it as much as possible, I am actually excited about this change. Ho…

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…
