 Gossamer Dreams


Coffee and Beer;
patterns so clear...
traveling in time
Remember!

Coffee and Beer;
thoughts so near....
memories in shadows
Surrounded!

Coffee and Beer;
allow me my dear...
sharing the moment
Enchanted!

Coffee and Beer;
secrets whispered in ear....
touching on fantasy
Keepsakes!

Coffee and Beer;
coming so near....
revealing the past
Unsettled!
 
Coffee or Beer;
come over here....
sit by my side
Revealing!

Coffee and Beer;
Wine or Champagne...
toasting the memories
Salute'!




Have a rich and wonderful day!
Hugging you
SueAnn

The Magpie Tales ~ So Young; So Pure!



The challenge this week, over at The Mag, is a sweet photograph.  Here it is....



Of course, I had to  play with it!  Ha!  Here is my take on it....



What were you thinking?

I was so young.
Innocent!
You held my hand!
I trusted!

I was so young.
Timid!
Whispered promises!
I surrendered!

I was so young.
A virgin!
I took you in!
 Hungrily!


I was so young.
Trusting!
You took it all!
Greedily!

I was so young.
Humiliated!
You laughed at me!
Unspeakable!

I was so young.
Broken!
Scarred for life!
Appalling!

I was so young.
Shamed!
Walking, head high!
Determined!

I was so young!
Remembering!
Time has not healed!
Memories!

Now, not so young!
Adjusting!
Sealed it up and moved on!
Bravely!



Have a creative and loving day!
Hugging you

Magpie Tales ~ Mermaids in Sweaters!!!



The prompt this week is quite the challenge!  Here is the pic...



Now is that interesting or what!!!  The Mag has a sense of humor this week!  Here is what I did with the pic......



Now...what to say?   Hmmmmm.....




Mermaids in Sweaters

Tarry not....
sweet child of the sea.
Always be wary;
be ready to flee!!

Tarry not....
sweet child of the sea.
Running on empty;
I will let you be!

Tarry not....
sweet child of the sea.
Chilled and icy;
covered to the knee!

Tarry not....
sweet child of the sea.
Now warm and cozy;
how can it be?

Tarry not.....
sweet child of the sea.
Rest for a while;
I beg you, be free!!

Have a amusing and delightful day!

Magpie Tales ~ When I saw her face.....



We have a new image over at The Mag for this week!  It is a portrait which is beautifully done!!  So our task is to express our thoughts with words and I chose to also express it with image.

This is the image...

image by Daniel Murtagh


Here is my take on it...




and...



When I saw her face...

 Surprised,
 eyes clouding; 
I became a hostage.
No longer in control.
Frozen!

Surprised,
heart crashing;
 overcome.
Feet stopped!
Cemented!

 Surprised,
 body shook;
speechless.
Lost!
Silence!

Surprised,
jumbled;
 confused.
Uncertain!
Doubtful!

Surprised,
yearning;
reaching out.
Hopeful.
Determined!

Surprised,
she smiled;
welcoming.
Moving forward.
Relieved!

Surprised,
thirty-nine years;
together.
Still breathless.
Amazed!

Have an imaginative and dreamy day!

A New Year!



A New Year!

It begins;
with the strike of the gong!
Dropping of the crystal ball,
hats and noise makers;
a new start!

It begins;
with wishes and promises!
Sharing a kiss,
hugs and laughter;
a new start!

It begins;
dancing the night away!
Throwing streamers,
confetti in the air;
a new start!

It begins;
with a word!
A motivating word,
encouraging a life;
a new start!

It begins;
anew!!
