Shhh

I intended to post this here to begin with, but messed up.  Still getting used to being back, and there are changes to WordPress since I’ve been away that are tripping me up a bit as well. Anyway, I went to reblog it and accidentally reblogged it to my blog too. LOL…so I’m posting it here too.  I WILL get used to this again. :)

Shhh

 

Amid the silence

Soft whispers of wind

Soothe my restless soul


A Comedy Tonight

Originally posted on My Life Uncut...Almost:

This was a poem I wrote last year, July 26 to be precise.  I haven’t written much new material for awhile…have been busy with other things and kind of have set all that writing on the shelf for a good while.  But lately I’ve been reading through a lot of it again. 

I’m posting this poem again not because there’s any particular kind of drama going on at the moment in my life…just something I was talking about recently with a friend, and about taking the drama and finding comedy within it as much as possible.  This speaks along those lines.  I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend.  It is good to be back. :)

A Comedy Tonight

A tragedy it is, when drama’s left to rule my life

And all about the tears I cry, the worries and the strife

What fun that it can be to take…

I haven’t been back here in so long I couldn’t remember my password.  I am as a result seriously behind on notifications, and I apologize if you have commented for no reply.  Life has been busy, but there’s much to be thankful for.

Since I’ve been here, I completed my massage therapy schooling. YAY!  I took the National exam on Monday and passed that, so have sent off for my license, and am thankful about that.  I’ve moved too, and that’s been keeping me busy…just to a different place.  Still in Pensacola.

There’s not a lot more to say at the moment.  Frankly I’m too tired to really say much.  For all your responses in my absence, whether kudos or complaints, I do thank you.  I appreciate the kudos always of course, but the complaints are good too, to remind me not to take myself too seriously.  One thing…

Butterfly

I’d like to be a butterfly

Though  swiftly their lives do go by

But while they live, they bring a smile

To all who see their carefree style

 

So beautiful they are, you know

While they do flutter to and fro

And every one does still awake

The child within, make no mistake

 

If only I could live that way

As if my last day was today

To simply be, until I’m not

To make the most of what I’ve got

 

Alas, I’m not a butterfly

And sometimes human tears I cry

I’m selfish sometimes, yes it’s true

When circumstances make me blue

 

But God has made me with a plan

Though I don’t always understand

So I’ll just smile and give a sigh

Whene’er I see a butterfly

I haven’t been here in almost a month.  My, how time flies.  I’ve been going through a bit of a ‘slump’, personally, and just mostly trying to get through that.  Thanks to those of you who have stuck with me. 

School’s going pretty well…my grades have slacked off just a bit lately.  Nothing serious, but I’m sure it has to do with that slump because I have been having a lot of difficulty concentrating, and have been fighting off discouragement.  Again, nothing serious.  I have hope still…always.  One has to have hope or there is nothing.  My hope is in my faith.  It’s not in other people, for certain, nor is it in myself, nor is it in my circumstances.  I fail others and myself.

But that brings me to these thoughts today, about how I’m just not good.  There are those who would be ready to come along and…

That’s right…NO blues on this absolutely gorgeous day. :)  I haven’t even opened my blog in several days…maybe a week or so.  Have been busy with school and various things.  Grace turned 11 this weekend and we celebrated that with much joy and fun and laughter.  But as a result of the weekend’s celebration and church, I’m playing catchup today with homework and studies…exam tonight in A & P.  I got my homework done, except for a couple things I’m stumped on at the moment, so I thought I’d take a break.

School has been going well and I am still enjoying it so very much, and so thankful for the opportunity to learn and grow.  I’m so excited about the future in the field.  I had my first clinic Friday night, where we get to massage actual clients.  I was nervous but excited, but it went very well and…

A Bowl of Soup

I wish I had a bowl of soup

Alas, but I do not.

But if I had a bowl of soup

I’d like it nice and hot

~~~

But not too hot, just warm enough

To soothe my throat so sore

And if the soup was good enough

I might just ask for more

~~~

But since I have no bowl of soup

I’ll make a cup of tea

The herbal kind with lemon

And delightful, sweet honey

~~~

I hope you like this little poem

Though it’s not some great verse

Remember, while it’s not the best

I’ve penned, by far, much worse.

;)
