I’m Back !

After what had been a traumatic few months I’ve finally decided to pop back into say Hi folks, I’m hoping everyone is well and staying safe in these very uncertain and frightening times.

We each have a part to play in keeping ourselves and others safe and well. First let me say I send out my condolences to those who have sadly lost loved ones due to this Coronavirus.

Like many of you I’ve been on lockdown since Mother’s Day, this was the last time I saw my dear mum. It is extremely heartbreaking to not be able to visit mum as I had been doing on a daily basis but for mums sake, other residents and staff it is better to take every precaution necessary.

I’ve been doing a bit more poetry over the last couple of months as it’s like a form of therapy for me especially as I suffer a few health issues one being Anxiety.

There will be many many more of you out there who will no doubt be going through similar but I feel like this is a community where we can all come together and support one another as best we can. No. It’s not easy but even just a bit of sunshine and the tweeting of birds can make any of us feel a little more positive hard as it may be.

I want to say that I wish each and everyone of you, family and friends to stay safe and keep busy as possible. I’ll be honest I’ve been finding it quite difficult as I’m a very tactile person and hugging is something I’m missing dreadfully, especially not being able to hug my grandson but there will be most of you also in the same boat.

I want to send you all virtual hugs and know that I’m here for anyone who wishes to share how they’re coping, maybe even giving each other a small gesture of kindness such as a “hello” or share stories, photos and such like, anything you find may help us. I’d love to be able to reach out to anyone who’s feeling that bit more vulnerable. Even in darkness the stars shine brightly.

Sending many blessings to you all.

Halloween 🧛🏻‍♀️

Thursday Thirsty !

It was on the thirty first

I was hoping for a flood

Something to quench my thirst

A need for sticky warm blood

Off I fly into the night

My hypnotic dark eyes

To serve up with fright

Always aware of upcoming light

It was then I heard voices below

Oh yes I’m gonna put on a show

I prepared myself out of flight

Right behind but still outta sight

I kept disguise under my cape

I knew they weren’t to escape

Who had the thickest neck of all

I went into bite but they didn’t fall

What’s happening how can this be

Why this pain inside of me

I look to see sun shining through

It was my end but not for you

The End 🦇

#SoCs

Oh to be happy buzzing about

I love all flowers when they’re out

I’m black and yellow as you see

Buzzing about makes me so happy

How wonderful to be a bee

Living in nature as you see

Save the bees thank you so

I make honey “do you oh”

FIRST TIME HUGS !

🤱💙🤱💙🤱💙

A feeling like no other

Being a grandmother

A feeling deep inside

My feelings I can’t hide

Today feels like a dream

For you I finally seen

Your gorgeous little face

A kiss I gently place

A miracle so true

My grandson I love you

The love I feel is real

It’s amazing how I feel

Every time I think of you

My heart will skip a beat ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Tears Fall !

Why does my eyes sting

Why do we pray or sin

Why do we lose hope

Or is it a downward slope

I find happiness rarely

In my life it feels barely

How sad I sound to you

I don’t know what to do

If happiness comes within

Then maybe I’m waring thin

If sadness I’m surrounded

Need to keep myself grounded

I fear of feeling happy again

For inside of me real pain

If I return a smile or two

I’m smiling truly trying too

We may never know at all

Why we never stand up tall

No matter where we’re at

We’re trying that’s a fact

I’m struck by impending doom

I know what I fear so soon

I cannot stop these feelings

I’ll try through gentle healing

To change so much to me

Is a tall order to be

So push on I’ll try my best

I know my body needs to rest

YORK MINSTER!

In black and white it stands

As beautiful as can be

Such an amazing building

So steeped in history

If you ever have been

You’ll know how it feels

Imposing, but lavish and real

Buildings with atmosphere

That’s the kind I love

Unseen history inside

That always remains untouched

We explore to feed our brains

Part of history still remains

These buildings have life

Although they are old

We can read all their history

Though there’s stories untold

Some people have no interest

Which is obviously their choice

I. Myself love history’s voice

There maybe no sound

But looking closer I’ve found

Ssh listen you’ll hear the sound

I believe buildings tell stories

If we listen carefully

They can tell many tales

Share your stories with me

York in B & W

Sound A Sleep

Sleep doesn’t come easy to me

I’d imagine quite a few would agree

It makes you feel really unwell

Your body is weary many can tell

Your mind can’t shut off

From troubles and pains

Stresses ongoing in your brain

I wanna feel so normal again

No medications I want to take

Enough I take for my body aches

I wish I was different in every way

I wish my pain disappear one day

I feel so unlucky in body and soul

To have no pain is my end goal

Though it may come only in death

Until that day comes I hold my breath

Does it sound selfish all that I say

Normal is what I wish for each day

To gently lay my body so weak

I know one day I’ll fall fast asleep

Song Lyric Sunday.

This is my choice ! Enjoy 😊

I should have known better with a girl like you
That I would love everything that you do
And I do, hey, hey, hey, and I doWhoa, oh, I never realized what a kiss could be
This could only happen to me
Can’t you see, can’t you seeThat when I tell you that I love you, oh
You’re gonna say you love me, too, oh
And when I ask you to be mine
You’re gonna say you love me, tooSo oh, I should realized a lot of things before
If this is love you’ve got to give me more
Give me more, hey hey hey, give me moreWhoa, oh, I never realized what a kiss could be
This could only happen to me
Can’t you see, can’t you seeThat when I tell you that I love you, oh
You’re gonna say you love me, too, oh
And when I ask you to be mine
You’re gonna say you love me, too
You love me, too, you love me, too, you love me, tooSource: LyricFindSongwriters: John Winston Lennon / Paul James MccartneyI Should Have Known Better lyrics © Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC

Lest We Forget 🌺

Remembering Them Always !

Where they’re souls had laid

Where many had prayed

A seed had grown in time

A red flower of remembrance

As their blood flowed like wine

We’ll never forget their sacrifice

They never thought twice

In the distant blue sky’s

You can hear distance cries

Though the guns are now silent

A bloody battle so violent

Our hero’s in heart evermore

Though a nation shocked to the core

We keep them in heart

No war should it start

We need peace all around

Let’s strive for a joyful sound

#SoCs.

This was done without really too much thought but hope you enjoy

It’s Saturday, and time once again to try to work Linda G. Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt into our conversation at the bar. Linda has given us an interesting challenge, but I think we’re up to it.
“Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is ‘ght.’ Find a word that contains the letters ‘ght’ in that order, and use it any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use three or more different words containing those letters. Have fun!”

Bright Heart ! 



Oh how beautiful and bright 

Heartbeats give us light

We feel it beat everyday

It’s such a precious sight 

I love to feel it comfort me

A beautiful beating organ

Inside of me and all of us

Always treat it oh so kind

It also helps to keep in mind 

This bright and beautiful 

Amazing to hear and see

There’s times when given fright

It can beat faster out of sight

Though shining very bright

It’s like an ever ending light
