Mad Mad World #PoetryCollaboration

Welcome to March's Poetry Collaboration!! If you have been a follower of my blog, you know that each month, a group of us bloggers choose a theme, and then write poetry based on the theme. It can be any type of poem, and there are no rules. This month, our chosen theme of March Madness. Not necessarily the basketball March Madness, just madness in general.

After you check out my contribution, make sure you check out the poetry all my friends have created. I think it would be amazing, if you feel inspired, to read any poetry you could may write based on the March Madness theme.

Poem 1 (Mad Mad World):

All around me the world is mad.
People are dying.
People are going hungry.
Politicians are lying.
Schools are unsafe.
Drugs are taking lives daily.
It's a mad, mad world.
Hatred is more aparent daily.
Fear is filling hearts.
Danger lurks everywhere.
Criminals are seemingly fearless.
Some days it is hard to see the good.
Some days I forget that goodness is everywhere.
Some days, I have to remind myself to focus.
I have to seek the silver linings.
I have to find the good news.
I have to seek it out.
Why do we do this? 
Why do we broadcast the negatives,
and leave the good unspoken?
Why do we aid the spread of madness?
Why do we fuel the fire of hatred?
It needs to stop. 
We need to end the madness.
We need to regain control.
We need to smother out hatred with love.
We cannot let hate win.
We cannot let the madness spread.
Love must win.
We must work together, and end the madness.
We need to stop the spread of madness.
We need to plant seeds of happiness.
Good must triumph over bad.
We need to make this world better.
It's a mad, mad world.
We need to make it a glad, glad world.

Poem 2 (Madness):

Mismanaged rage.
Anger and resentment.
Disputes and misunderstandings.
Nasty attitudes.
Egos out of control.
Sadness and hurt feelings.
Stress and anxiety.

Poem 3 (Madly, Deeply):

My love for you is true and pure.
I love you madly.
I love you deeply.
My love for you is strong and fierce.
I love you madly.
I love you deeply.
My love for you fuels my soul's fire.
I love you madly.
I love you deeply.
My love for you unending.
I love you madly.
I love you deeply.
My love for you is unconditional.
I love you madly.
I love you deeply.
My love for you is emotional.
I love you madly.
I love you deeply.
My love for you is electrifying.
I love you madly.
I love you deeply.
My love for you is blisfully beautiful.
I love you madly.
I love you deeply.

So, there are my contributions to this month's March Madness Poetry Collaboration! I hope you enjoyed them! Now, go check out what poetry my fellow bloggers created for your enjoyment!! I will meet you there!!

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…

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.
