Magpie Tales ~ What she wants!



Another great challenge from The Mag.  Here is the prompt...



Here is my take on this...




She thought she knew!

They kissed;
as if in a dream.
No substance;
just air between them.

Floating above each other;
afraid to hang on.
They kissed again;
unsure of the first.

How she wanted it to be;
solid and still.
The kiss;
so fragile-unreal.

The rain began;
surrounding their hearts.
His kiss;
pinned her to the earth.

Soaked and broken;
clinging to a dream.
They kissed;
and vanished into thin air!

Magpie Tales ~ In God we Trust!!



Well the prompt this week over at The Mag, is very challenging!!  And unique!  Took me awhile to get into it.  Ha!!
Here is the prompt...



Here is my take on it.....





I See You!!


What are we thinking?
Freedom of Speech;
roaming the land,
What do we seek?

What are we thinking?
Freedom to wander;
to and fro.
What do we want?

What are we thinking?
Freedom of Religion;
worship our God,
What do we adore?

What are we thinking?
Freedom to be;
just like we are.
What is so bad?

What are we thinking?
Arguing; fighting;
throughout the land.
Let's just get along!
Do you think we can?

Magpie Tales ~



From The Mag, we are given Midnight Snack as our source of inspiration....

Midnight Snack, 1984, by Curtis Wilson Cost


Spooky!!  My take on it...




Midnight


And the clock chimes,
telling it's story.
Of life and loss;
pain and death!

And the clock chimes,
shouting it's protest.
Of sweet victories;
times long ago!
 
And the clock chimes,
 sounding it's pride.
Of a family;
long gone!

And the clock chimes,
melodious joy.
Of baby's born;
weddings celebrated.

And the clock chimes,
amazing grace.
How sweet the sound
Of past and present;
turn all around.

Magpie Tales ~ Faint of heart!





Today's challenge painting is...

Sick Woman, 1665, by Jan Steen


My take on it.....





Faint of Heart

Fever,
Chills,

Oh how she ached!
Her heart....
Heavy!
Her mind...
Confused!

Fever,
Chills,
Oh how she longed!
Her heart....
Broken!
Her mind....
Clouded!

Fever,
Chills,
Oh how she hoped!!
Her heart....
Torn!
 Her mind...
Anguished!

Fever,
Chills,
Oh how she cried!
Her heart....
Divided!
Her mind....
Unsure!

Fever,
Chills,
Oh how she knew!
Her heart...
Broken!
Her mind...
Unclear!

He left...
he's not coming back...
Chills !

He loved another...
she's my best friend...
Fever!

Oh how she planned!
Her heart....
Iced!
Her mind...
Set!

Revenge!

Random Tuesday ~ Pain and Fashion!!




Sorry I missed last Random...but I was battling a migraine...ALL WEEK!  Now I am battling blogger!!
Ha!  It wouldn't let me post on my regular blog!?  Mystery!  Sooooo...we are posting here!  And the migraine...finally broke on last Saturday!!  Sheesh!!

So not much to randomize about this week....just a pillow and pain meds and ice packs.  Oh, and Sunday, met my grandkids and daughter in law in town and went shopping.  A very special trip indeed.  Time to pick out a homecoming dress!!  Woot!!  This one is for Georgia...the youngest of my granddaughters.  She will be 17 on October 3rd!!  Happy Birthday honey!! 

We had a blast!!  Here are the dresses she tried on...


Cute dress but not the one she wanted

Just didn't fit her right!
The winner!!


So she chose the short blue one and it fit her perfectly!!  Adorable!!  Then we shopped for shoes and jewelry.  She found a wonderful pair of silver sparkly shoes with five inch heels!!!  Oh my!  Now we are styling for sure.  Found an adorable pair of earrings and a flashy ring.  She is ready to go. 

Dr. John and I are traveling to Gallup next weekend to photograph the occasion of her first formal dance.  It is also her birthday so we will be celebrating for sure!!

We all, the girls that is, went out to lunch at the Flying Star...yummy!!  We saved room for dessert....to die for baked goods!!  This capped off our day and we declared it a success!  So fun!




Saturday, Dr. John and I went to town to run our weekly errands and and then I watched Michigan State get creamed!!  Ha!!

Been working on lots of art projects...getting ready for the art and craft show...November 3rd!!  I mean, seriously, it is October!!!  Time is flying for sure.

I have been taking pics of the items I have been working on...and I will share them on Thursday!!

Hey!  I have two pumpkins on the vine!!!  Yay!!!  I will post some pics next week!!

Well, would you believe...this is it!  I have nothing more to randomize about!  Damn migraine!!
