Snap, Crackle, Sizzle July 2016 #PoetryCollaboration

Welcome to this month's poetry collaboration! For this month, we chose the theme Sizzle. Hopefully you enjoy my contribution! Don't forget to check out all the other contributions!! 





When I first heard sizzle, I thought of a grill, and then fireworks. It is such a good word. I especially love it that it contains two Zs. Z is my favorite letter. I hope you enjoy...

Poem 1 (BBQ): 

Steaks, burgers, and chicken breasts.
Iced tea and lemonade. 
Zesty marinades, onions, and peppers.
Zealous laughter. 
Lazing around on lawn chairs. 
Eating, laughing, talking, making memories. 




Poem 2:

I miss the nights we spent together. 
I miss our talks and debates. 
I miss the kisses and caresses. 
I miss the steamy intimacy. 
I miss the feel of your body against mine. 
I thought you were so hot. 
I thought you were so intelligent and thoughtful. 
I thought I'd explode from the ecstasy you evoked within me. 
I thought nothing could match the intense passion between us. 
I thought our nights together would never end. 
I felt like together we could conquer the world. 
I felt like I genuinely mattered to you. 
I felt like one day I'd hear a sizzle when I touched you. 
I felt like our passion could set the world on fire. 
I felt like we belonged to each other. 
I wish I had been right about our future. 
I wish I had given you more of my time, and made more memories. 
I wish I didn't miss you so much. 
I wish I had told you about how I truly felt. 
I wish your body were pressed against mine right now. 
I hope you are happy. 
I hope you are loved. 
I hope your dreams come true. 
I hope the music still guides you. 
I  hope you miss me, at least a little. 




Poem 3:

Seven
Intelligently 
Zany
Zebras
Lazily
Eating

  1. Trying to pick a favorite but having a very hard time. The last one sure did make me laugh, though.

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…

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…
