A social media inspired song

“Procrastination is like a credit card: it’s a lot of fun until you get the bill” Christopher Parker

A social media inspired song

Dancing, romancing
Laughing, prancing
Completely trancing
Time fast advancing

Panic quickly attacks
There is no turning back
Time was supposed to lack
Or maybe I am a quack

I was supposed to do
An essay, story, poem or a few
If I only had the slightest clue
I would not be feeling blue
Right now

Was I procrastinating?
Maybe just contemplating?
Planning my next writing?
Or simply, just waiting?

A simple prompt enough
Not too a difficult task
But if I must, I must
With these words at last

I am not going to be defeated
And this poem is completed

“Winter is a season of recovery and preparation” Paul Theroux

Winter Morning

Early winter morning
Early, before the dawning
Fresh tracks in the powdery snow
Carefully found before the wind blows

The snowflakes frozen
Glazed against the window
Ski tracks on the ground
But not a soul to be found

The crescent moon
Present before noon
But not far behind
The sun with its shine





In Flight

Writing 101, Day Four: A story in a single image

Yesterday, you found inspiration in one word and used it as a springboard for a post idea. Images — including photographs and works of art — can also act as starting points for stories, essays, poems, and personal musings. For this exercise, use one image as the creative spark for today’s post. You might use it as the setting for a story or poem, write about how it makes you feel, or describe a memory conjured by it.

“Be like the bird who, pausing in her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing she hath wings” Victor Hugo

In Flight

Flying through the air
Without a single care
A beauty with flare
Innocence unaware

Flapping her wings
While the wind sings
Sky feels like spring
A scene well worthy
Of kings


Camera Lucida: The Colour of Life

Photography and Poetry, Photo Challenge, Camera LucidaWeek 10

“Man needs colour to live; it’s just as necessary an element as fire and water” Fernand Leger

Camera Lucida: The Colour of Life

Pink makes you happy
And certainly more chatty
Some say you are batty
And even slightly tacky
But they might just be crabby
Because they do not wear pink






Photography and Poetry, Photo Challenge, Camera Lucida, Week 9

“If you were waiting for a sign, this is it”


Whether looking for a wine tasting
Or a payphone to call back home
You may find something amazing
When you are on the roam
Follow all the signs
They will lead you to a price
But you may be surprised
When the credit card bill arrives

Photography and Poetry, Photo Challenge, Camera Lucida, Week 8


“Becoming fearless isn’t the point. That’s impossible. It’s learning how to control your fear, and how to be free from it” Veronica Roth, Divergent


First I was broken
Unable to walk, run or dance
Putting on high heels
Next to impossible

Now it feels
More and more possible
For a second chance
And the world wide open




Photography and Poetry: Photo Challenge, Camera Lucida, Week 7

“Be brave enough to live life creatively. The creative place where no one else has ever been” Alan Alda


The odd one out
Without a doubt
Standing tall
Midst of them all
The only one
Of the colour red
Can’t be undone
Cheering instead

out of place

Week Six: Journey

“Not all those who wander are lost” J.R.R. Tolkien

Camera Lucida Photo Challenge: Journey

Flying across the skies
Waiting for the price
At the end of the station
A promised vacation

The journey taken
Was not a long one
Each morning awoken
To the rays of the sun

Surrounded by history
Shrouded in mystery
Time spent on the beach
Bliss at hands’ reach

Enjoying each day
Life a large buffet
Until it was time
Back home to climb
