Waving to you all.

Hi everyone, since our return from the sun I have been hit hard by the blues. 

It’s not so much the lack of sun more the fact that everything I ran away from, to relax, is all still here but more of it and bigger. 

So I don’t feel I  can cope. I shall be doing my best to catch up on all my commitments. Twittering  Tales, A Month With Yeats,Thursday Photo Prompt, Cosmic Photo Challenge, Colleen Chesebro Weekly Poetry Challenge, Sacha Black’s writespiration,Ronovanwrites plus I need to catch up on all your posts and comments. 

Be patient, I will be back , tomorrow or next week. I miss you all I will be back.

Please if your pray say one for me, if you don’t then send me a kick up the bum to get me moving .💜💜💜💜💜

A Month with Yeats

Day 17 of Jane Dougherty‘s  alternative to NanoWritMo A Month With Yeats. You can find Jane at Jane Dougherty Writes. 

Rules and Pingback here.
Today’s poem is : Aedth Wishes for the cloths of heaven.

And the Quote.: The blue and the dim and the dark cloths. Of night and light and half light. W.B.Yeat

Darker Depths

The universe  spreads

Black and deep yet star studded

She swirrels her skirts round.

She hides so much in her shadow.

Her dance a tango of joy.

A Month With Yeats: Day16

This is part of Jane Dougherty of Jane Dougherty Writes alternative Challenge to NanoWritMo. A month with Yeats. 

Rules and Pingback Here 

Day 16’s quote is from ‘He  mourns the change that has come upon him and longs for the end of the world.’ Almost a poem in itself .

The quote. ‘Do you not hear me calling, white deer with no horns.’ W.B. Yeats

Where I live they are building houses by the hundreds. The deer are at a loss as to where the routes that are written into their consciousness have gone. It is so sad to see deer negotiating busy roads and housing estates. 

Though it is wonderful to come across them while walking the dog or looking out of the window, the fear in their eyes hurts.

I do not think that those incharge realise what they are doing. 

We  do not see.

The runs have all gone

Far too late we see the truth

You are so lost friend

They have stolen your byways

Now you run afraid and lost.
  

A Month With Yeats :Day 15.

Day 15 of Jane Dougherty, of Jane Dougherty Writes, A Month With Yeats. The alternative she devised to NanoWritMo.

Rules and Pingback Here
Yesterday was day 15 and half way through the month.

The quote for yesterday was from The Rose of the battle.

The quote is : ‘You too have come where the dim tides are hurled upon the wharfs of sorrow and heard ring the bell that calls us on; the sweet far thing.‘ W B. Yeats.

Another Haiku.

Will there be piece

The silent bell calls

Above  traviails  of life.

A reward beckons 

After the storms of this life

Will we dwell with the blessed ones.

A Month With Yeats Day 14

Day fourteen of a Month With Yeats. Jane Dougherty of Jane Dougherty Writes, alternative to NanoWritMo.  Today’s quote cons from To Ireland in coming times.

Rules and Pingback Here
Today’s quote : 

That you in the dim coming times 

May know how my heart went with them.

After the red-rose bordered hem. W.B. Yeats.

I have written a Hiaku, as a nod to Ireland’s bloody history.

      rose red, blood shed

Her heart bled for them

Ireland’ blood red immigrants

She saw it coming

The hunger and blood shed

Babies cling to mother’s, dead.

Twittering Tales #58 – 14 November 2017

This week for my entry to Kat Myrman‘s Twittering Tales we have been  double word count. We can either use 140 characters or 280 characters. 


Pingback and Rules Here

It was his life it always had been. His lamp in his hand he saw them off in the morning and he counted them back in the evening. He was the harbour light. Once they saw his lamp they  felt home safe. Five generations he had taught. He was afraid to die, who  would take his place.

280 characters.

almost bereavement

I am praying for you, we all are. Please read original post and comment.

My Blog

Living with a person who has Dementia is almost like bereavement.

The one you have known and loved for many many years is slowly slipping away.

Instead of being ‘Tess’ or ‘your Mother’ I am now referred to as ‘My Wife’

names of things are forgotten, conversations are not possible as concentration lapses very quickly. Simple tasks take longer to complete. Confusion creeps in

With the shortening of days comes restlessness and the need to shut things down and go to bed.

This brings loneliness and feelings of rejection, sometimes one even feels as if they are no longer relevant.

patience and understanding  are sometimes in short supply!

Pray for us.
