Summer's End #PoetryCollaboration

Welcome to this month's poetry collaboration! Last month, we chose the theme 'Wacky and Weird'. This month, we chose the theme 'Back to school'. Hopefully, you enjoy my contribution! Don't forget to check out all the other contributions, using the links at the end of my post!

Poem 1 (School):

Stressing out.
Chemistry, Calculus, Computer Science, Choir.
Hitting the books nightly.
Outstanding performance during gym.
Ogling your crush from afar.
Learning all you can.

Poem 2 (First Day):

It's the day I have been dreading since you were born.
Your first day of school.
The first day, of me leaving you, and you not needing me as much.
The day your independence truly begins.
You will learn so many things.
Your brain will be filled with knowledge.
Your future will start to form.
Your teachers and your friends will become important figures in your life.
I will no longer be the most  important person in your life.
Soon, I will no longer be your best friend.
You are full of excitment and I am full of worry.
I know this is great for both of us.
I just will take more time to adjust than you.
Don't get me wrong, I am very happy for you.
I am just a bit sad too.
I am so proud of you.
My little girl is now a student.
Soon, your nights will be full of studying, and less time to play with Mommy.
Soon, you will be graduating, and leaving home for college.
Soon, you will be a young woman.
So, for now, I will cling to you being little, as long as I can.
Just know, I will always love you, and I am always here for you.
If you need help with homework, or help studying for the big test, come to me.
If you need to vent about your friend not wanting to share toys with you, come to me.
If you need advice about boys, come to me.
If you need your mommy, just know I will always be here.
Long before you were a student, you were my baby.
No matter how grown and smart you become, you will always be my baby.
So, happy first day of school.
Happy first day of the rest of your life.

Now, go see what poetry these other blogging poets have for you:

Karen of Baking In A Tornado
Dawn of Spatulas On Parade
Diane of On The Border


  1. So bittersweet, those milestones. First day of school will be sad and wonderful, you captured both emotions so well.

  2. I remember the first day of school for each of my kids like it was yesterday, and it was a LONG time ago. It is bittersweet but such a joy to watch them grow and learn.

Touched for the Very First Time March 2017 #UseYourWords

Today’s post is a writing challenge. 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: 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…

The Game of Life Jan 2017 #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to a the first Secret Subject Swap of 2017. This week twelve brave bloggers submitted a secret subject for someone else to use, and were assigned a secret subject prompt of their own. Each blogger gets to use their Secret Subject prompt, to write any blog of their choice. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My “Secret Subject” is: Video games give a chance to escape sort of like reading a book or watching a movie but you, the player, is in control of the story or the actions needed to complete it. As technology advances so have games giving people vast open worlds to play in and characters who are more and more customizability. If you could turn any book, TV show, or movie world into a game what would it be? Lead us on an exploration of what it might be like playing this game (feel free to make up your own world if books, TV, or movies fail to give you a suitable choice).

Best Served Cold #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to June's Secret Subject Swap. This week eleven brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My “Secret Subject” is: Tell us a revenge story, truth or fiction. It was submitted by: Jenniy of (Thank you for such an awesome topic!!)

Revenge is a dish best served cold. That is how it goes, right? They also say revenge is sweet. Cold and sweet. Sounds like sorbet or ice cream. Sounds yummy and sticky. When I read this prompt, I immediately thought of one story. It is really all I ever think of, when I think of revenge. 

This really isn't my story to tell, but I know my friend won't mind me telling y'all, because I have asked permission many times over the years, and she always tells me I can. The she I am talking about, is my friend Opie. She is this amazing woman, who is one of m…
