He said, “I love winter because I am not sneezing all the time
because of my seasonal allergies.”
She said,  “I am happy for you but I hate winter because with
all the holiday hype and all the stuff I have to do
I am always grumpy and tired.”
He said, “Really?”
She said, ” Yeah, I guess you could say I have seasonal moods.”

Luddite or not…

we are challenged to write a poem using the word,
Luddite

Here’s my poem;

cat-colors-daylight-674580

I have blogs, one is Patricia’s Place
the other is Day of Grace
So, to technology, I am not opposed
as perhaps some may have supposed
Though I have no cable or satellite
I watch TV most every night
You see, I do have WIFI connection
for the computer, telephone, and television
Set in my ways I may be
Luddite no one can call me
I hope every night as I yawn
to see what’s new at dawn

Quiddity…

Here I am at BrewNSpew Cafe where some the chatter is about writing a poem using the word quiddity.  First I ever heard of the word. Good thing Eugenia included the definition;

quiddity (noun) – 1) the real nature of a thing; the essence 2) a petty or trifling distinction; quibble. Synonyms – essence, heart and soul, inwardness, nitty-gritty, pith, substance, haecceity.

Now that I know what it means…here goes.

Wandering through life
Searching for its quiddity
Journey of wonder

It’s balderdash…

At the BrewNSpew Cafe today.
Joining the Poetry Challenge
using this week’s word
balderdash

Some folks like to blabber
They’re all nonsense and blather
Hold your temper and don’t be rash
It’s all crazy poppycock and balderdash
Listen to them with a smile that is sunny
The truth is they are just full of blarney
