Chocolate Acrostic Poem

Cosily sip from favourite cup
Hot chocolate warms the cockles
Of your heart and toes and fingers
Comfy, luxuriate
Open fire gives out
Lots of safe heat
All aglow
To rest
Easy.

Back in 2018 in the days when we could travel, and mix socially we had a holiday. (Do you remember those?) We went to Mexico and there was a German family there they were a two generation family and everyday they brought their beautiful unicorn 🦄 to the pool. Each evening he could be seen sitting in their jacuzzi!

Amid the palm trees and the pool bar
There was a unicorn,legend and star.
He made it to the pool each day.
There he spends his holiday.
He was such a sight to see
Back in the days when we were free.

Song Lyric Sunday. Don’t Panic .

Jim Adams

Hi it’s Sunday January 9, 2022 and time for Jim Adam’s Song Lyric Sunday. This week the prompt becomes from Fandango of This, That and the Other and is Concern, Fear, Fret, Worry .

Well three of my choices start with the word don’t ..so let’s start with the odd man out . Level of concern from Twenty One Pilots.

Level of Concern” is a song written and recorded by American musical duo Twenty One Pilots. It was originally released as a standalone single on April 9, 2020, through Fueled by Ramen. The song would later be featured on the extended playLocation Sessions and the livestream version of Scaled and Icy in 2021. It was a dance-pop, pop rock and dance-rock song produced by lead singer Tyler Joseph alongside Paul Meany of alternative rock band Mutemath, and its lyrics revolve around the COVID-19 pandemic during which it was written and recorded. The song encourages hope during challenging times, while also addressing the widespread fear and panic associated with the pandemic. A portion of the song’s proceeds were donated to the charity named Crew Nation, a global relief fund made by Live Nation for touring and venue personnel made redundant due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A music video for the track was uploaded upon the single’s release. On May 29, 2020, an official lyric video for the song was released through the official Twenty One Pilots YouTube channel.

I think it’s a great song of it’s type and time, I do hope you enjoy it .

Panic on the brain, world has gone insane
Things are starting to get heavy, mm
I can’t help but think I haven’t felt this way
Since I asked you to go steadyWonderin’, would you be, my little quarantine?
Or is this the way it ends?’Cause I told you my level of concern
But you walked by like you never heard
And you could bring down my level of concern
Just need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okayPanic on the brain, Michael’s gone insane
Julie starts to make me nervous
I don’t really care what they would say
I’m asking you to stay
My bunker underneath the surfaceWonderin’, would you be, my little quarantine?
Or is this the way it ends?’Cause I told you my level of concern
But you walked by like you never heard
And you could bring down my level of concern
Just need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay, yeahTell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay, yeah
Tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay
Bring down my level of concern
Just need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay, yeah’Cause I told you my level of concern
But you walked by like you never heard
You could bring down my level of concern
Just need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okayI need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay
Need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay
I need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay
Need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okayNeed you now
I need you now’Cause I told you my level of concern
But you walked by like you never heard
And you could bring down my level of concern
Just need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay, yeahTell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay, yeah
Tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay
You could bring down my level of concern
Just need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay, yeahIn a world, where you could just lie to me
And I’d be okay, we’ll be okay
(My level of concern) we’re gonna be okay
(Just need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay)
(I need you)Source: LyricFind Songwriters: Tyler Joseph.

Now for the first of my don’ts! The fabulous Kinks with Don’t you Fret.

The Kinks were active for over three decades between 1964 and 1997, releasing 24 studio and 4 live albums. The first 2 albums are differently released in UK and US partly due to the difference in popularity of the extended play format (the UK market liked it, the US market did not, so US albums had the EP releases bundled onto them), and partly due to the US albums including the hit singles, and the UK albums not; after The Kink Kontroversy in 1965 the albums were the same. There have been somewhere between 100 and 200 compilation albums released worldwide.

Kwyet Kinks is an EP released in 1965 by the British band The Kinks. It rose to number one on the EP list.

*******

(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” is a song by American rock band Blue Öyster Cult from the band’s 1976 album Agents of Fortune. The song, written and sung by lead guitarist Donald “Buck Dharma” Roeser, deals with eternal love and the inevitability of death. Dharma wrote the song while picturing an early death for himself.

Great song a real classic I bet it’s been very popular today.

*******.

Now for my third don’t. Don’t Worry Baby by the Beach Boys another very popular classical!

Don’t Worry Baby” is a song by American rock band the Beach Boys from their March 1964 album Shut Down Volume 2. Written by Brian Wilson and Roger Christian, Wilson’s lead vocal on the track is considered one of his defining performances, and he later referred to “Don’t Worry Baby” as perhaps the Beach Boys’ finest record. It was issued in May 1964 as the B-side of “I Get Around“, and charted separately at number 24.

*******

Bonus Track from Camille and Kennerly Kitt  American identical twin actresses and electric/acoustic harpists, who compose, arrange, and perform as The Harp Twins. The Kitt sisters have released over 100 singles online, as well as nine physical albums of both covers and original songs. As actresses, the Harp Twins have appeared in several films.

Happy Sunday Everyone 💜

In the afternoon yesterday , 1.45 actually, I was on the phone to my eldest son, when suddenly there were huge black things floating infront of me. I kept try to brush them away, they were like huge cobwebs then for good measure silver flashes appeared from top to bottom of my periveral vision.

I could not concentrate on the phone conversation as the lights and cobwebs were so distracting. In the beginning I could not work out what was happening then as I relaxed I realized it was my left eye. This continued all afternoon and evening, at about 17.30 I rang my optician and asked for an appointment, she said what was the problem I told her. She advised me to go as soon as possible to the eye casualty. The earliest I could go was this morning. So I spent the evening wearing dark glasses and I have to admit worrying.

This morning we were up at dawn and off to the hospital after sorting Ruby. I was there at 8.30am the department opens at 9am. I was first in and was triaged , an eye test, then drops to anesthesise my eyes, followed by a test to measure the pressure in my eyes then drops to dilate my pupils. After a while I saw the Dr and her trainee they did loads of tests and even gave me more drops the put a special lense in my left eye to do a deeper test.

In the beginning I was scared when she told me I had had a P V D. Apparently this is an age related thing ..a Posterior Vitreous Detachment. This when the Vitreous ( a jelly) at the back of the eye breaks away, and we then see black floaters infront of our eyes. The light flashes are the vitreous pulling at the retina. It’s age related. Today every thing is okay, although rather disconcerting. The Dr said to just keep an eye on things … keep an eye 👀🤣🤣🤣🤣. But to watch out for the light flashes getting worse or suddenly lots more floaters as that could mean trouble, detached retina. So any problems I was to return to the eye casualty immediately.

Apparently this can go on for weeks months or even years???? I told her this was rather disconcerting because the floaters seem huge she told me that my brain will soon compensate for these and they will not bother me as much.

In the beginning I was very worried since seeing the Dr I feel better, though because of the drops my vision is very blurry so forgive me if I am late reading posts or comments today.

So in the end, for now all is well that ends well. 💜

The Tempest.

The tempest rants and raves
It boils and froths huge waves
The ragged ship is tossed and thrown.
All dead the crew except he who stands alone
Tied to the wheel to steer this vessel
Below a single coffin on a tressle.
The morning breaks the tempest will quell
The cargo intact, a product of the gates of hell .
The ship finally makes port
The cargo onto land is brought…..

Just Jot January 6th. Anticipation.

jusjojan© LindaGHill

/Welcome back to your daily prompt! It’s January 6th, so this is the 6th prompt for Just Jot it January 2022, and it’s brought to us by Pamela. Thank you so much, Pamela! Please be sure to visit her blog to read her post and say hello. And follow her while you’re there, if you’re not already.

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 6th, 2022, is “anticipation.” Use the word “anticipation” any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Now I have had a very weird day so I am going to come at this post in a weird way….if I have had to cope with the stressful all day I at least think I could blow off some steam here.

Anticipation or as my addle brain is seeing the word Anti citipation… 

I am anti citipation, I don’t like precipitation, rain/snow, uck, being wet is my least favourite condition.If I know it’s coming I am in dread anticipation!
Okay thats just me playing with words, spelling and pronunciation.
Anticipation is often the best part of anything, a party, a date. A baby the nine, or there about gestation, anticipation can be the best part of parenthood ….but we do, well most of us, love our children, and then reality excells anticipation. ( Though I know parenthood can be a nightmare)
So we are still in the throws of an infant year and we are all in anticipation of what it might bring.
Will things improve I hope so but I don’t anticipate anything changing  much,  soon 💜

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 91 (READ) in the C rhyme line.

Read, to escape.

Books are really my true delight
An escape from the stress of life.
Where my imaginations  rife
A door from which my mind takes flight
A fantasy or mortal plight.
Give me a book and I will read
Of life and love, of hate and greed.
Of space ships and a planet cursed
Lieing villains doing their worst
Oh yes give me a book I plead
