It's cold and it's snowy in Canada in January but vow to be happy, despite the cold! Wear your favourite winter woollies and get out there! Happiness doesn't just happen so plan for it to happen; in fact, don't accept anything less! LIFE is a special occasion. And each individual moment that make life are special, too. Of course, a good life needs good health, so DANCE with the spirits - Zumba, perhaps! - Stay ACTIVE (& stay hydrated) to stay HEALTHY.
GROW a PASSION - a passion for creating. Get your ZZZs and LET's GET HAPPY... get ready!, already! You got this. Make life a meaningful journey... be tasty. Normal? Really? Normal is clearly over-rated. Normal is boring! Never settle FOR GOOD ENOUGH. Imagine the world... it is often irresistibly surprising! Unleash the PASSION. Make a splash!
I really love this project! I happened to have done some vision board collages last year and the year before:
shall every be destroyed.
Even a cookie survives-
That one time,
as I pitter-pattered
with Your platter of cookies...
Well, I fumbled
And I stumbled
Before I tumbled.
I was troubled
as the pieces doubled, all crumbled and crumpled.
Humbled and puzzled,
as I struggled with the smuggled, jumbled
treats and platter.
was flatter as it scattered and splattered,
You should have heard the clatter!
I heard the laughter long after this disaster
of JUMBLED MATTER.
NaPoWriMo, Day eight is late, but such is fate!
I did a week - a full week! - and then..... Playing catch-up:( No pressure; it's all good:) I do have a bunch of partially written poems, though.
This poem is a variation on the Oulipost prompt from day 9, which I did for my Day 8 poem, thereby making it a day early:) Ha! Instead of newspaper, I used the flyers...
Don't miss this great deal
Always more for less
Shop this weekend

Or your money back.
NaPoWriMo, Day 5:
Today, I thought I'd give an actual Poetry prompt a go and it went...
NaPoWriMo Prompt: Today I challenge you to write a “golden shovel.” This form was invented by Terrance Hayes in his poem, The Golden Shovel. The last word of each line of Hayes’ poem is a word from Gwendolyn Brooks’ poem We Real Cool. You can read Brooks’ poem by reading the last word of each line of Hayes’ poem! (In fact, you can do so twice, because Hayes, being ultra-ambitious, wrote a two-part golden shovel, repeating Brooks’ poem). Now, the golden shovel is a tricky form, but you can help keep it manageable by picking a short poem to shovel-ize.

Extra Bonus Poem (Yesterday's Prompt, a Lune, which is a form of the Haiku - 3 words, 5 words, 3 words):
Eensy peensey pieces
cut out from a magazine,
What'll it be?
The last line of yesterday’s poem is “Matter immortalized, fueled by wonder.” The rest is a mix of new and old material. This is so much fun!
Make Your Mark, Set, Go!
Matter immortalized, fueled by wonder…
Pssst, pass it on, pass down.
What moves you?
You all sit there with your big, blank eyes boring into mine, daring me to dazzle you with wonder.
Well, students, I dare you!
I double dog dare you to be the ultimate you that you can be!
To heck with hitching your wagon to a star when we know there are infinite universes of possibilities to explore.
Be a Star that Shines its lightness upon others to bask in and warm their hearts with your sensational soul.
Most of us leave no indication that we have ever been.
Today is a great day to create a great day.
This site is my attempt at gathering all of my creativity that I have strewn about out 'there'....
