Prompt 93 – Finding Peace


Finding my peace
Got to remain as one piece
It’s inside me
The key is being free
No pressure
It’s normal to err
With pure heart
That’s a good start
Count my blessing
Every day I could sing
Accept what life brings
Do my best, on what springs

The oasis of serenity
When everything’s at peace
When I can breathe again
The joy of being here
The freedom I feel
Of love and happiness

Prompt 86 – What is Happiness?


love is happiness
you and me against the world
always, forever

a nice cup of tea
ringing my Mom and my son
a long, Sunday bath

ice-cream in the park
cycling in the beer garden
swimming in the sea

Louise, with the “The Storyteller’s Abode” has provided our prompt photo this week. Thank you Louise!

If only I followed my heart instead of my head
I wouldn’t be living in that shed
If only I went out with Brad instead of Pete
Perhaps my life would be complete
If only I finished my degree instead of eloping with Pete
I swoon over his manly ways and he was sweet
If only I concentrated on my career instead of bearing children
I seem to be forever living with my apron
I would be staying at the cottage house by the beach
The sky began to change from grey to peach
I would be sailing and catching fish with our boat
The water is refreshing as I float
I would probably still have my figure and career
And hopefully have a gorgeous year
I would probably still be happy with my life
With friends to go out for our nightlife
But I have made some rash decisions
I have to think about the little ones
And I have to suffer the consequences
Ponder carefully before I make choices

Prompt 84 – Small


Best things come in small packages
I’m small and I don’t make a fuzz
It’s not the size but what I can do
I flew the world and I’m never blue
My heart is as big as the ocean
Always on the go, I’m full of action
Him Indoors and HRH the son
They’re my stars, moon and sun
And we live in our small house
Listening to Beethoven and Strauss
I love being small
It’s not too far to fall

Them Promises – Music Prompt #9 “The Beigeness” and Prompt 82 – A Wordle Prompt


Let’s paint the town red right now
Until we cross the limit that we’re allowed
Give me a kiss and I’d be healed
With that kiss I’m all sealed
Glance at me and my window’s open
We’ll have fun my hunny bun
Take a photo of us and my life’s complete
As long as you don’t cheat
Them promises I should keep
I promise not to weep
Them fun things we should have
Protected by a salve
Them kisses I should treasure
Give my life a colour

Prompt 81 – Hope, and a Change


over the rainbow
in a land so far away
waiting for some hope

waiting for some hope
regretting what has been done
atonement at last

atonement at last
peace, love and harmony
happiness for all
