Sunny Side Up

Posted on

Pelee Island 140

She liked her eggs sunny side up
Runny…

      … running away
Like she always did

She poked the yolks
Releasing them, releasing her
From destinies and obligations
Yellow trickles of madness

Ooooozing……

Soaking grainy plateaus on her plate
Mesas she never climbed
The people left behind
Standing there
Like the salt and pepper shakers
Stoically staring her down

This.. a mere snippet of it all
Life served on a platter
Exchanged for prices
And slices of her heart
She toyed with the lettuce
Lifting it, loathing it
A worthless embellishment

     Wilting

Dying in front of her
Like all the rest

My 1st “Best Moment Award”

Posted on

first-best-moment-award-winner

“Awarding the people that live in the moment,

The noble who write and capture the best in life,

The bold that reminded us what really mattered,

Savoring the experience of quality time.”

I would like to thank a very interesting young lady and talented writer named Esta Chappell for this award.

Be sure to pay a visit to her very interesting blog at http://chinatripping.wordpress.com/

 As an expat in China, she shares with us the culture, landscape and life as she experiences it in a foreign land. Her intriguing stories are further enhanced by her wonderful photography.  Esta is a free lance writer and ecologist. She writes articles for http://www.echinacities.com/, another place to read her excellent work.

Thank you, Esta.

As I humbly accept this award, my heart is full of love for blogging and appreciation for an amazing world of writers I would otherwise have never met. It is necessary in my journey of life to express myself and this has given me a comfortable forum to do that. I am still very surprised when others leave comments on my blog as I would never expect that what pours out from my mind to a keyboard would have any impact on someone else….but I am happy when it does. I am thankful for the supportive environment,new connections I have made and excited each day to read! I don’t read books very often (I know, that’s terrible), but I am captivated by the personalities, brave stories, poetic talent, mesmerizing photography, open hearts and minds that accompany my cup of tea each morning……and night……and ok…a few others times in between.  Is there an Addicted to Blogging Award? There should be.

It was so difficult to choose my nominations as I am continually moved by all of the bloggers that I follow regularly. I decided to give a shout out to some of those not mentioned during my last award nomination. I understand if some of you are too busy to properly accept but I am shouting out to you anyways. So listen up!

My nominations are:

When You Can’t Slow Down

Posted on

Mind sinking into neutral gear

While car just never stops

Blurs of beauty to my right

Desert dreams to my left

Hiking mountains in my mind

As colours sweep by in foreign hues

Land of enchantment at my door

But I can only take these shots

Good intentions, greater hopes

All but shatter in the wind

I reach to hold on to a  cloud

As shadows race across the sky

Destination pushes on

Journey…………lost

My heart is pulling over

Aching for my feet to touch ground
