The warmth of the sun filled my soul

tooopen_201211171625076230You know that feeling you have, when standing in a ray of sunshine.  A tingling sensation passes through your body, with such a wonderful warmth.  It seems to awaken the soul and give you that extra rush of energy that your body craves.  You never realize that feeling, when you’re laying in your bed, wondering if you should get up.

It’s so easy, to just stay inside your house with all your comforts.  So, on days that your feeling blue or just need that extra boost of energy, try going outside and find that ray of sunshine.  You will be surprised, on how much your body can rejuvenate, with a touch of mother nature.

So, go ahead and get outside.  You’ll be glad you did and your body will thank you.

You wave goodbye…

Writing 201:  Poetry.  Day Seven: Fingers, Prose Poem, Assonance


You wave goodbye

I glance at my hands

I see the roughness

The white spots and veins

Age begins to take its toll

I used to write well…

Now it hurts to hold a pen

Sometimes the pain is excruciating

I massage them with care

Appreciating each finger

When I’ve seen cracks I took care of you

Every two weeks, I made sure to get you a makeover

My friend we’ve been through a lot

At times we’ve carried over 6 bags

When we should have only carried two

I never really thought about you and all the work you do

Now as I look you over, brown spots and all,

I  will make sure to give you my all
