Daily Prompt; The Full Moon

http://dailypost.wordpress.com, DP, Daily Prompt

When the full moon happens, you turn into a person who’s the opposite of who you normally are. Describe this new you.


Photographers, artists, poets: show us NIGHTTIME.

Oh to live a fairy tale even if just for a few moments.

During the day I am Ms. Maid, Taxi driver, Financial Planner, Cook, Nurse, Psychologist.

During the full moon I strip my titles and clothes and turn into a free bird.bird

I would be strong like an Eagle.eagle

I would not be alone. I would be free and in love.love birds

I would still be nurturing but have time for me also.birds - babies in nest

I would be beautiful and never grow old.peacock

I would dine at the best places.bird-feeders

I would have always have something to say.lots of birds

That was a fun trip, but time doesn’t stand still for even the best of us.

I need to go back to reality and remember that I am me.

I am who God hath made. I am a caregiver, a sister and I take up a little space here on earth.

I am doing what I need to do and I am where I am supposed to be.

I am turning the pages of the chapters of my life.book4


#FWF Free Write Friday; Time and Place Scenario



Here is your FWF prompt…


Let’s leap into the future with a time & place scenario. 


The year: 2063


The place: An underground bunker


What’s going on?

This is a hard one for me. I deal with so much in 2013 I don’t think about 2063. It is scary to say out loud that I won’t be alive. I will have lived a good life and in that year I will be sitting by God looking down at who knows what.

I would be 109 years old if I would live that long. Of course God would need me very badly here on earth for me to still be here. Can you imagine what I would look like at 109 years old?wrinkles

Would there be home-made foods like we or some of us still fix today or would there be food pills that all we need to do is drink water.Vitamins

Would there be peace in the world or would there big bigger wars than we can even imagine?wars

What kind of cars would we be driving? Would they look similar to what we know now? Or would they not even be recognized?carhouse

Will all of us still be living here on our planet? Or will families be walking on the moon?moon

I guess it doesn’t matter, since I won’t be here to live it.

Although I do wish my grandchildren the best of luck. They are young enough now that they most likely will adapt very well.

They will look back at people like me and wonder why we got so excited over a microwave.microwave Or how about when they make fun of me because I own the latest version of a cell phone?cell phone Well what ever the case, at least I am still not using two paper cups and a piece of kite string for a phone.

I can taste and season my own foods. I know my way around and don’t have to worry about falling into any moon puddles or craters. I know how to use my simple cell phone and I can program my own ring tones and pick my own wallpaper. My car is still made in the United States of America, and I can still choose which gas station and what kind of gas I choose to use.

As far as wars go, I have lived all these years with war going on and off. I am sure God has the perfect answer in how to end this useless fighting. So for this I will just sit by God and watch him work his miracles.

And last but not least, I sort of like the skin I wear right now. I don’t think I want to see me looking like my next door neighbor’s dog. So I will take what I have and be content, for I am pretty sure that some things will be exciting in the future, but I am certain that I would be lost and realize that there is no place like home.               red slippers http://youtu.be/4IErqIMLwtQ




Stolen Moments


The moon shines bright

Casting shadows on

The two who meet

Under the stars.

Secrets being whispered

Of desires from deep within

Passion coming to surface

As the two touch.

Feeling like it is the first time

Hands roam freely

Lips touch with fire

Eyes have locked.

He cups her face

She leans into him

He raises her soul

The two become one.

Back in their bed

They smile at each other

As they celebrated once more

Another Valentine’s night.

The Holidays Are Coming

Sometimes, when I get down and out

Moon Light

Moon Light

The only way to push it away is to shout

To the world I want you to know

That I miss my parents so

The holidays are coming soon

And as I look way up at the moon

And see the twinkle of the stars

I wonder how in fact you  are

I miss you so, my heart does hurt

I wipe my tears away with my shirt

What I would not give to see you again

And go back in time to you remember when

The smiles the talk the atmosphere

Of mommy and daddy oh so dear

Another year I will spend with Al

And we will try but I know we shall

Be thinking of you and years gone by

I miss u so bad I’m wiping tears from my eye.

Take care of them God and watch ore  them for me

And tell them I love them and some day it’ll  be

My turn to leave everyone behind me

And Al and me will be sitting  oh so near

Until the time comes that only you do know

We shall carry on, and try not to show

Our feelings we hide other days of the year

We will walk together and try to show no fear

The holidays are coming oh too soon

As I look to the skies and up to the moon

I love you mom and dad we shall be with you soon.
