Here is my poem using the word hasten:

To hasten this day
With worries of tomorrow
Robs today of joy
Time is fleeting and precious
Live here and now with delight

Here are my 5 lines this week inspired by a Saturday best forgotten.
But all is well now. I never overdo wallowing.

It started first thing in the morning and just kept on.
Nothing was right and everything was wrong.
It was just one of those awful no good days.
Might as well put on an ugly grumpy face.
Go ahead and let the wallowing begin!

This week I am writing from my cat Teddy’s perspective…

fireworks-3596_640

Today the fourth of July it be
That means fireworks will boom
And that really irks me
Those things cause me to zoom
And under the bed to flee

Here’s my story inspired by twaddle

She is one hundred years old and remembering the first time she voted, somewhere around 1939.  She had listened to the candidate’s speeches on the radio and read articles in the newspapers about what they were going to do for the people of this nation,  studied the excellent proposals, and listened to all the admirable promises then voted for who she thought would be the best to lead the country.  Now she is in a voting booth once again considering today’s candidates and their speeches, proposals, promises, and lots of media hype that contradicts everything and can’t help thinking she’s heard it all before.  She’s been around a long time and has had a good life in spite of who she may or may not have voted for and whether or not they did what they said they would do. Really, it seems to her they simply like to hear themselves talk and most of what they say is just twaddle.

Here is my story this week

They were sitting outside a small cafe enjoying their morning coffee and donuts while people watching. Well, he was people watching while she read her book and ignored his obvious enjoyment in watching all the young women. In the beginning, there had been many arguments between them about his wandering eyes but now she paid no attention. He was a good man and she knew he loved her and wouldn’t do anything to hurt her so, she let him have his fun. Anyway, he wasn’t looking to buy something new he was just browsing.
