Cherished Collection (tanka)*

grooved black vinyl disc~

spinning circular movement~

diamond tip travels~

elicits musical sounds~

long gone tunes ‘n songs of past

lg/23052020

*Note: I’ve always been eclectic in my musical tastes. I was never a mad fan of anyone band or artist, although I did have favorites. I’ve given some links to a few of the original vinyl albums I have. I’ve been dragging these around for years. If you ever had a collection of these you know how heavy they are. I hope you enjoy them.

PS My posts will be limited as I broke a finger and it takes forever to peck with one finger.

🌎 ✌🏻💙 Take care, be safe.

cred.

* Slang. Turkey – a person or thing of little appeal; dud; loser. a naive, stupid, or inept person. 

Silence (tanka)*

emotional blues~

cries within wanting release~

struggles inside self~

battles daily twofold war~

harmony a fleeting thing

lg/14052020

*Note: Many fight depression, anxiety and bipolar conditions just to name a few on a daily bases. Mental health is a major issue for many on a good day, however with the Covid-19 quarantine it is even harder for some to deal with it. Even those without issues are finding it difficult to be isolated. If you know someone who might be struggling reach out, you don’t need to give advise, just let them know they aren’t alone. This video connected for me with my poem. 🌎✌🏻💙 Take care, be safe.

PS. If you’re wondering I unplugged this week, I’ll catch up with all of you and your posts, I’ll be looking forward to reading, listening and seeing what you all are up to. Much love to all my fellow bloggers. 🙏🏼🦋🌹

Always in My Heart (tanka)*

flesh nor blood were yours~

arms encircled like a womb~

your love carried me~

delivered me to this world~

life’s joys I might not have known

lg/10052020

*Note: My Mom had so much love to give and couldn’t have children. She always said how lucky she was to be chosen to be my Mom and her prayers were answered. When all the time I was the lucky one that He sent her to me. My Mom loved roses and had a garden full of them. This year my daughter honored both of us by planting two identical rose bushes in her own garden (you can see it’s bloom in Eye View #3), I was deeply moved by this gift of remembrance and love.
