I cheated skittle and did a Haiku and a Tanka.

Nature draws a wide

Compass her palate is huge

Her colours every hue

With only the stars

To guide, man used the old ways

Travelling was an art

No compass yet discovered

Stars by night and sun by day.

Monday morning madness

Just muddling through life

Today I have been woken by happy screaming and shouting. Kids playing and racing around the house. Not easy to just roll over in bed when they are being so noisy. The highlight of the morning so far has been the cry of “help I’m stuck in the toilet”. My 5 year old is then trying to open the bathroom door to help him, but he has locked it. New rule the kids are not allowed to lock the bathroom door. He did eventually climb out and I could then hear him screaming, shouting and playing once more.

We have a man visiting today to fix the grill on the oven. The oven was only delivered five weeks ago and we have struggled with it from day one. I am hoping that it is either a very easy fix or we get a brand new oven. It is an expensive…

How to Stop Sabotaging Yourself

A great article by Suzie !

Suzie Speaks

imageSelf-sabotage happens for a number of reasons: a lack of self belief and/or self worth, a fear of failure, feeling like the outsider, a consistent focus on perceived negative aspects of yourself. It usually appears in the form of what I refer to as ‘my demons’ – those pesky internal thoughts that creep in whenever a challenge, a plan or a deadline is presented:

You’re not good enough.

They don’t like you.

They’re not going to take you seriously.

That’s too difficult.

I’ll do it tomorrow – I’ll feel better about it then.

I’ve lost count of the amount of times I left something to the last minute, or avoided putting myself forward because of a constant fear of rejection or failure. My daily routine involved berating myself for not getting something done the day before, or wasting my money on something that I didn’t actually want or need, only…

Scary October 22

Here we are at the unholy month of October. I thought I would do a paranormal, witchy, unholy bunch of poems, some new and some old.

Don’t forget to check out Jane Dougherty and Kat Myrman‘s plans for this month!

Today’s poem is about trying to hold off death.

Would you stop if I asked you

If I pleaded what would you do.

Would you stay a moment longer

If promised,my love would make you stronger.

Could I slow your path,stop the ravishes of time.

If I showed you love sublime.

Would I halt your advance in any tiny way

Could I cheat death and make you stay.

If the tears that fall upon your face

Could chase off death, make it leave in disgrace.

I would hold my breath for eternity

If it meant that you would stay with me.
