03/31/22 Reflection

WOW! one whole month has absolutely flown bywriters supporting writers with every simple reply. Brought together by the crew at Two Writing Teacherswe found community, support, writing our features. Each day brought inspiration and sometimes partial stress but I published, supported, and felt some success. I personally loved the connections I madereading their words curedContinue reading “03/31/22 Reflection”

03/30/22 Snippets

“Dandelion Puffs” Beautiful weed grows like yellow rays of sunshine vanishing to clouds “Early April Morning” Building nests of mud sparrows chriping in their homes drinking drops of dew “Ontario” water lapping shores of gray beaches; cries from gulls dancing in the waves “Blanets of Clouds” muted gray clouds blow across the sky, smothering lifeContinue reading “03/30/22 Snippets”

03/28/22 – March Snow

December. the sound of a snowplow at 5:33am holding breath; waiting for the phone to ring sneaking a peek out the blinds praying for mountains of snow March. the sound of a snowplow at 5:33am holding breath; forcing the jaw to unclench practicing slow breaths while closing the blinds praying the wind dies down enoughContinue reading “03/28/22 – March Snow”

03/27/2022 – Milk Sloshing

I grabbed the plastic gallon of milk out of the fridge jovial and animated, swooping around gathering the mug and Milano cookies. My hands still warm from doing the dishes when the milk sloshed up through the hollow handle of the carton. The cold on my palm stopped me. I looked at my hand, startledContinue reading “03/27/2022 – Milk Sloshing”

03/26/22 – On this day in 1983…

On this day in 1983, I officially became a living, breathing member of society and with every full orbital rotation, I feel compelled to reflect on the past year while looking forward to the next. Today’s reflection is inspired by last year’s post: NYT 7 Q’s/Bday Reflections. I had to modify the questions because theContinue reading “03/26/22 – On this day in 1983…”

03/25/22 – sour mood

In Wegmans today, Ralphie grabbed my leg and told me that he hoped I would feel less sad soon. I know kiddo. There were a lot of people around, the sounds and lights were too much and I was trying to find solid ground for my nerves. I am usually pretty good at hiding theContinue reading “03/25/22 – sour mood”

03/24/22 couch

I’m on the couch tonight because Maple couldn’t be upstairs. I felt for her sitting down in the dark all alone. I could hear her whimpering; questioning where I was and why I wasn’t sleeping snuggled up with her. I am sleeping on the couch tonight. Big fluffy comforter and my pillow. Miss Maple snugglingContinue reading “03/24/22 couch”

03/23/22 I was raised on…

My house my rules… – my mother so much resentment stems from this, but spiteful actions have made me more independent. I purchased my first car at 18 after being told the variation, “my keys my rules.” Fine. I will buy my own car and your rules can kiss my a$$. Enough blue in theContinue reading “03/23/22 I was raised on…”

03/22/22 – American Woodcocks

Last spring, Ralphie and I were wandering the back paths. Nothing on our minds, just a chance to connect with the quiet after a long day. We noticed a brown fluff on the ground and as we approached we saw a unique-looking bird, with large black eyes and a long beak. We didn’t know whatContinue reading “03/22/22 – American Woodcocks”
