I am so disappointed that the only electronic game I play, has and expiry date. Scrabble had been something that I enjoyed and played for fun and to improve my language skills. In fact, I recommend it to my students. It is I. 29 languages and sold in 121 countries, ( Wikipedia 2020)
Sadly its replacement is a strange, complicated new version with lots of bells and whistles. Unfortunately, it’s no longer free, and it no longer resembles the clever, thought- provoking game it was intended to be. I know it’s just a game, but it was a strategic one that entertained and educated me. I’m really sad that they decided to fix something that was not broken. If you like me want to see the original vers...
I am just not going to
obstruct whatever wants
to grow. I will let plants
live to see what my little
yard wants to show!
Often I find when I’m happy,
they lash out in anger.
I wonder why they feel like
I am responsible for all their
problems and their pain.
I realize now finally, that
it really doesn’t matter.
I need not ever take
all that on again.
Sometimes the heart
it releases a
world of pain.
it holds on to
all that’s gone
because it’s afraid.
The rain falls gently on
the greening grasses, and
the flowers all drink it in.
It is nearly the end of all
my classes, & summer will begin.
Anger permeates everything that
she does. I wonder again, “Why is
she mad at me? What have I done?”
I think back and perhaps this is the
way she always was. And then I
realize that I must not engage in
battles that simply cannot be won.
When I was a little girl, I visited my grandmother in Sweden. 🇸🇪 It was the highlight of my childhood! In fact, each time I visited her, she would buy me a pair of clogs. I was thrilled every time, but I walked too fast and I always fell off them! Now my dear Grandmother is long gone, and I noticed that I love to wear clogs as a house shoe. This makes me smile, and I realize it also makes me feel closer to her. I miss you Mormor.
När jag var liten flicka besökte jag min mormor i Sverige. 🇸🇪 Det var höjdpunkten i min barndom! Faktiskt, varje gång jag besökte henne, skulle hon köpa mig ett par träskor. Jag var glad varje gång, men jag gick för fort och jag föll alltid av dem! Nu är min kär...
I came here to write a little.
I came here to express my views.
I came here to give insight a bit,
and to share a little of my news.
I came here to express my feelings-
and I do have many! I came here to
try to explain all the things that
I just cannot fully comprehend.
I came to free my all of my words
So new thoughts can come in.
I came here with this certainty-
I know that I’m not a connoisseur
Of really anything in this world.
I just seek to understand it all, &
try to do so by penning my verse!
It’s funny we get used to
feeling bad, but we also get
used to feeling good. We
should try it sometimes!
Why do we suffer?
Is it by our own choice?
Is it always tougher
For those with no voice?
Who will be a buffer
To model what is right?
I no longer
have to guard
my heart . I can
hear her now
and I trust her
to guide me to
the places that
I need to go.
My heart is
beauty. I just
didn’t see it
It’s okay for me
to ask for what
I want and then
it’s equally okay
for me to accept
He liked my
That made me smile.
It’s not something
I ought to take;
but he ate it ever so
joyously for a while!
Love stands down, because
She knows how important it is
To be Love when you wear a crown!
Indigo Child running sweet and
Running so wild, it’s time to let go!
You can no longer carry the troubles
Of others.! This you must now know!
They arrive in so many colours-
Indigo, violet, blue, gold, & green!
They lift my oh so tired spirit-
Into a lovely multicoloured dream!
Where do we go
we are all at
such loose ends?
What do we need
to fear when we
are all starting
Taking my time,
Thinking it through,
Is rather fine.
No more rushing,
Getting things done.
Now each experience
Is gentle and fun!
Looking at the blue sky,
Hearing songs of birds,
Feeling cold breezes,
While writing my words.
I don’t know how I feel now...
being on my own by choice is fine.
But imposed self-isolation is surreal.
We know it’s necessary, that’s true.
I am so grateful for those who so
bravely support us by all they do!
I am thankful for my sweet dogs
& my home. I think that we all give
new meaning to the “going it alone”!
Sending the world healing prayers
for a brand new day! Take care of
yourselves, and I hope it’ll all be OK.
She learned to ask for
what she wants and noticed
that her wishes come true.
Good people take the blame
In order to stop the flow of hate-
Good people feel the shame
To corner the release of disgrace-
Good people realize that owning
All of the troubles of the world
Often crushes our boys and girls-
Good people, I think we all see
Just want us to be happy & free!
