Stay with me  he said

Change your mind and come to bed

Our future is dead.

Two Feet and Four Paws.

In the early morning quiet

Feeling the first warmth of the sun

Mist on the  grass startled bird in flight

Peace before another day has begun.
Two feet and four paws move in tandem

This path is ours  we know it well

Fate has us together yet it is not random

Two  feet,  four paws breaking the dawn’s spell.

 

Gently we cross the fields of green

Four paws faster than two feet

In the early morning quiet we are seen

Together and happy we are complete.

A picture  of  the hubby   walking  Ruby.  Why  not  a photo of  me ….. Because  I  was  walking her  and  there  was  no one  to  take a  photo of Ruby and  me at  6.30 am!

Here is one of  Ruby  after  her  return  !

Song Lyric Sunday: Minnow and the Trout.A Fine Frenzy.

This is part of Song Lyric Sunday  and the theme for this week is to share a song you’ve heard recently for the first time and fell in love with.  It is open to anyone who wants to share music, so please feel free to click the link, read the rules and post one of your own.


Song Lyric Sunday is the brain child of Helen Espinosa of This life One Word at a time.  Pingback and Rules here.

Now this is very hard for me because I love most songs. So what am I to do, what song can I choose.

Well  I love Fine Frenzy. I discovered her because someone recommend her on a website I was using at the time called Last F M.

I listen to one track and fell in love with the whole Album which is called One Cell In The Sea

I  bought the  album  and  have  loved it  ever  since.  I have  bent  the  rules  as  this  was not  a song  I  heard recently   but I  loved it  at  first  hearing  and  still  do!! I do love  this  song  and  the  whole Album  I  really  hope  you do  too!

A FINE FRENZY LYRICS

“The Minnow & The Trout”

Help me out said the minnow to the trout
I was lost and found myself swimming in your mouth
Help me chief
I’ve got to plans for you and me
I swear upon this riverbed
I’ll help you feel young again

Not your every day circumstance
Hummingbird taking coffee with the ants

Please, I know that we’re different
We were one cell in the sea in the beginning
And what we’re made of was all the same once
We’re not that different after all

Help me out said the eagle to the dove
I’ve fallen from my nest so high above
Help me fly
I am too afraid try
Now saddled with a fear of heights
I’m praying you can set me right

Not your everyday circumstance
Elephant sharing peanuts with the rats
And I said

Please, I know that we’re different
We were one cell in the sea in the beginning
And what we’re made of was all the same once
We’re not that different after all

We are tied in history
Connected like a family

Please, I know that we’re different
We were one cell ienzyn the sea in the beginning
And what we’re made of was all the same once
All the same
We’re not that different after all

Lyrics from  A to Z
THANK  YOU  HELEN  FOR  THE CHANCE  TO SHARE!

 

Stream of Consciousness Saturday: Cash!

LindaGHill at Life In Progress has said: your  prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is : Cash: use it in your post as a verb,noun or a name. Enjoy.

 We have a new badge for Stream of Consciousness posts for the next year, which we can all display. Well done to John Holton

Cash! 

One and two make three 

Some for you and some for me

Cash turns the word around.

ACOSTIC CASH

Could you lend me fifty p.

As I did not bring any cash with me.

Should you lend me the luka

Heaven will reward you supadupa!

Cash Prose

I like to have some cash in my purse, and being English I mean a money purse  and not a huge Handbag as my American cousins will assume.  

I am digressing already, sorry. I like to carry a little cash with me at all times because even though we have credit,debit and touch cards you need cash for parking, going into some public conveniences . 

I also like to have cash for a cup of coffee or a tip for the hairdresder,the manicurist or paying at the local shops.

I find it comforting to have cash with me for many reasons and so I for one will continue to carry cash for as long as it exists! 

That’s all for now as my SoCs has run out!!

Happy Saturday everyone!

 


It’s A Winner!

Another year another badge, congratulations to John Holton at https://thesoundofonehandtyping.wordpress.com/ great badge!And thank you Linda for organising😍😘

For most of the day yesterday the race for our new Stream of Consciousness Saturday badge was a close one. When I posted last night’s reminder, Willow’s “Wildflowers,” JoAnna’s “Rocks and Water,” and John’s “Digital Sky” were neck in neck for the lead. Trailing not far behind were Helen’s “Fast-Moving Stream,” Deborah’s “Firework Fantasy,” Dale’s “Thoughts,” and “ KG’s “Long and Winding Road” in that order.

Then I posted my reminder to vote and one badge took off! Though most of the other badges gained votes, the winner became clear. By a landslide, with 38% of the votes, the winner is…

Oh wait. I should take a moment to honour our outgoing badge. Thank you for serving us so well for the past year. And here’s hoping our friend “Hope Floats” returns to WordPress soon! We miss you!

SoCS badge 2015

So now, without further ado…

except for a drum roll…

Nothing is new under the Sun

As far as  she  could see, the dark clouds  were rolling in

As they always had shading her life,in dark shrouds.

The  wharf and  weft of clouds getting under  her  skin.

She was used to ignorance and the hate of the crowd.

 

Soaked  by the  rain,battered  by wind  and  baked  by  the  sun

The best kept secrets  of  her  soul unraveled  and became un-done.

 

The  crows took the light from her eyes

Alone out on the  moors no one  heard  her cries.

Pangs of hunger attacked her and slowly  she breathed  her last.

No one to see or care her sin had made her an outcast.

 

Soaked  by the  rain,battered  by wind  and  baked  by  the  sun

The best kept secrets  of  her  soul unraveled  and became un-done.

 

She had followed her feelings true

No matter her body she  was a woman.

Her body was wrong she was female, she knew.

They call her Tom and made her a man.
Soaked  by the  rain,battered  by wind  and  baked  by  the  sun

The best kept secrets  of  her  soul unraveled  and became un-done.

 

When they found her dressed as her kind

They  accused her of being a witch or a demon.

No mercy was shown, beaten and stripped her hands tied behind.

She was dragged through the village and up the hill.
Soaked  by the  rain,battered  by wind  and  baked  by  the  sun

The best kept secrets  of  her  soul unraveled  and became un-done.

 

The parts of her body she hated the most

Exposed for all to see,they screamed ‘ he be a man’

She closed her mind to the horde and the host.

Worst of all they then dressed her as a man.

 

 

Soaked  by the  rain,battered  by wind  and  baked  by  the  sun

The best kept secrets  of  her  soul unraveled  and became un-done.

 

They  hoisted  her high at  midnight.She had been beaten  all day

She  silently suffered, closed down her mind  and just prayed.

No one looked back on her , no  pity  or  care  as  they  walked  away

Those  she had loved  had her to  the  elders  betrayed.

 

Soaked  by the  rain,battered  by wind  and  baked  by  the  sun

The best kept secrets  of  her  soul unraveled  and became un-done.

 

When darkness came it  was such a relief

She had  no more  to fear the worst had  been done

As  she left this  world  she shed  all pain and  grief

Tomasena’s soul, a beautiful woman circles  the  moon and  the  sun.
