In the After Hours

While most were sleeping my creativity came out to play. I will share some of the proceeds here…

Today with much more
To carry has many thoughts
It may share with us
Beyond yesterday’s blurred clouds
Pregnant with memory’s tears.

Prodigious Prompts

1. If you described your attitude this month, what tree would you be?

2. We lose parts of ourselves to situations and people regularly. If you could return one quality lost last week, what would you regain? What present attribute would you sacrifice for it?

3. No one told you there was a meeting. What do you wish you had left at home today?

4. For the next two weeks, one primary or secondary color throughout your life will be replaced with newsprint gray. What color are you comfortable giving away?

2022 Creativity Project – Day 104

Tribble and Wookie – © Jo Ann J. A. Jordan

We went outside for a little bit, beyond usual walks. Before I got the phone out to take the picture, they were looking at me. Normal thing with these two, no photographs, please.

Gratitude: I had a free unexpected free day. It was beautiful outside. I found something I misplaced. I colored a little. Reading good books.

Prompt: Make a work of creativity of your day.

Thank you so much for visiting. Like, follow, comment, and share as you choose. Have a blessed Good Friday or as you celebrate otherwise. Love to you and yours always.

2022 Creativity Project – March 6

Wookie

I was broken
Lost my “Hope”
Needed belief,
Her face –
That beauty –
Unbearable
To go on
Without,
Threw all
Including
Thanksgiving,
Aside to go
Rescue
The Marbles
That almost
Demolished
My physicality.

Today, truce,
I never
Trust her,
She sometimes
Believes in me,
We love each
Other with
A dis-ease
Like magnets
Attracting
Repelling.

She is
A lunatic,
I am mental,
We suit
One another
Because
We learned
To trust
Whatever
We are
It could get
Better,
It could be
Worse,
But who
We are is
Together.

Prompt: Maybe you have an “unsettling” relationship. Create…

2022 Creatvity Project – Feb. 26

Bare Trees

Light falls
Shadows
Raining
Into souls
Captivated
By whispers
Leaves titter
In breezes
Competing
With thoughts
Unsought
Poorly
Reflecting
Colors frame
Memory
Doubting
Is there time,
Time enough
To stretch
Reaching
Toward a sky
Bleached
With doubt
Fear, fading
Fast another
Chance
Opportunity
To find
Whatever
Dreams provide
Decide might
Add livability
Bring joy
Where broken
Is the heart
Spilled out
Like blood
From wounds
Only love
Can stitch
To heal
Make real.

Brevity

The dogs
Tying trying
Round feet
Stumbling
As if
Balance
Left behind
In fairer
Climes
Where time
Was seconds
Of days
Sunned
On skis
Rivers
Lakes
Wherever
Never
Expecting
Future to
Steal away
Dauntless
Strength
Endurance
Growing was
Pleasure
Then became
Older,
Never
Let go.

Prompt
Shadows, whispers, the passage of days, pick one or all, create.

2022 Creativity Project – Feb. 22

Always Faithful

Loyalty, at times
Can best be found residing
In the noble heart
Of a friend on furry feet
Who cannot secrets repeat.
The eyes a glory
Focused with love, devotion,
Finding such pleasure
In helping sorrow abate
With gentleness, sweet kisses.
Tender is the heart
Joined in comfort, friendship,
Who will stay until
The last, when tears fill our eyes
And we are broken in loss.

Prompt
Consider the ones who always cheer for you, those you can trust; create something.

I am grateful for a warmer day though there was rain at the edges. I was glad for the Oreos and Almond Milk. I am happy that it seems I may be losing a bit of the weight I have gained. Clean bed linens are a piece of Heavenly delight. I am thankful for my home.
