A cherita inspired by MVB: Girl. I’m actually not this depressed right now, so I’m not sure where this is coming from. The picture of the cute little fawn is because looking for an illustration for this post was pretty dark, but the fawn showed up for some reason. Voilà, incongruity!
If you knew the entirety of a life,
As this infant grew into a girl,
Then an adolescent, then a woman
And you knew everything that would happen,
Including how and when she would end,
I wonder if you’d celebrate her birthday?
I’m not getting any good poem ideas yet today, so here is an old one from a couple of weeks ago, not yet shared on my blog. First, I have a random one-liner for Linda G. Hill’s one-liner Wednesday today. 🙂
When life gives you lemons…
use them to keep your apples from turning brown. 😀
Inspired by the Sunday Writing Prompt at MLMM (it might be a little too late), “The Little Things.” Also for FOWC: Realm. The other day, I was in my backyard and noticed a beautiful flower, so I took a photo of it. I posted it to Instagram with the caption (in part), “How can you be sad when you are looking at a flower like this?”
Today’s SoCS prompt from Linda G. Hill is “difference.” Because I really like math, one of the first things I thought of is that “difference” is the answer to a subtraction problem. 🙂 Then I wrote this, which I think counts as a cherita.
The answer to a subtraction problem —
How much has changed, to make life
Foreign and strange, yet better in some ways?
What has been taken away?
Do not forget how much is left:
What has made a positive difference?
This is a cherita and was inspired by Writing Wednesday, FOWC: Deteriorate, and this prompt about what is urgent. It’s ironic because I don’t drive and therefore do not have to deal with any “check -engine” lights; however, my human equivalent of a check-engine light is always trying to get my attention. 🙂
If a car’s ‘check-engine’ light is on,
It merits a closer inspection, urgently done,
Before the vehicle deteriorates more.
The human form of a ‘check-engine’ light
Might signify a need for sleep or fuel.
To risk terribly crashing is not cool.
