Poems: Life’s Lesson Plan & Learning to be me

Poem created in response to Poetic Bloomings’ “An Entertaining Summer” Poem-A-Day event

Day 14, July 14th

Prompt: The Summer I Learned to Fly

(form: lune)

Life’s Lesson Plan
There’s no foolproof plan
No secret
Learn as best you can

 

(form: nonet)

Learning to be me
What took me the longest time to learn
was to simply love and accept me.
It took nearly forty years,
but I finally learned
the power others
have over me,
is only
what I
give.

Teaser Tuesday: IT (one more time)

Teaser Tuesday post for 3 May 2016
from IT by Stephen King

"Some stuff has to be done even if there is a risk.  That's the first important thing I ever found out I didn't find out from my mother."

Teaser Tuesday logoTeaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB (Jenn) at Books and a Beat. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:• Grab your current read • Open to a random page • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
