New Decade, Acrostic Poem.

Now we stand on the abyss
Everyone of us accountable
Why have we closed our eyes.
Drowning and burning we fly
Earth we spoil deaf to her cry
Careful you are killing me
Are you are all too blind to see”
Dare we ignore the warning
Earth is screaming.


New Year Meets Old.

Death wheeling in the New Year[/caption]

 

It was late,  the  last  day of  the  year was  done and leaving  no  doubt

Death  was  pushing in the New Year as  Old Father Time was on his  way out.

Everywhere  plans  were  being made for  beginnings  shiny  and  new

Death  and Old  Father Time raised  an eyebrow it was all rubbish, they knew.

 

Death  knew  he  would spend  his  time  as he did  time and  time  again

Just doing his job with out  complaint , clearing up  the fall out  of mankind’s pain.

From  the crashed  car, to  a  bomb in a cafe, a knife  fight in  the dark

A plane crash, train wreck, a war, climbing  accident or tragedy  in the park.

 

Old Father time  had  seen it  all , in technicolour  more  than once  before

He  patted Death on  the  shoulder  as he  trudge  towards the  sunrise once more.

He slipped  on spilt  blood on  the  floor and  stepped over  miss chances

He  knew  them  so well, he passed  by  the  plotters and  suicides ready for one way dances.

 

A cry  from the pram made  the old guys  both jump,

Why did hope always  arrive at  this  time of  year, in  this dump

The  New  Year was  gurgling  and  burbling  with joy, eyes  bright on horizons new

Painting rosy lies  across  the world, closing it’s  eyes to badness  and  feelings  of  blue.

Happy New Year[/caption]

Another Year

Happy New Year

Well here we are again another year older, no wiser in my case but you may well be. 

I am truly grateful for all your support and kindness throughout 2017. I hope I have been as supportive to you all.

I do love you and I am grateful for all of your patience through my bad times these last few months.

Happy New Year to each and every one of you all.

Looking forward to May 19th .

Lots of love willow.

This week LindaGHill has given us the word Resolution for our Stream of Consciousness Saturday. The last one for 2017

Rules and Pingback here

Resolution, you will never keep

Escape your head and run the street

Seldom do they last for long

Ousted like a forgotten song

Lots of good intentions end this way

Undone, forgotten within the day.

Time and time and time again

Intentions just don’t last the game.

Onwards as the year comes to an end 

New Year Resolutions we bend.

Just Jot It January:One Liner Wednesday

Today is day 4 of Just Jot It January and LindaGHill said: “Since today is Wednesday, I challenge you to make your JusJoJan post a one-liner. If you don’t care to, or if you’ve already written your post, no problem. Remember, with One-Liner Wednesday you can write anything – it’s only a prompt to write one line, not necessarily to keep to the same theme as mine. The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

(i) Make it one sentence.

(ii) Make it either funny or inspirational.

(iii) Use our unique tag #1linerWeds.

(iv) Have fun!

(v) Use our One-Liner Wednesday badge!”

Stream of Consciousness Saturday: First/Last.

LindaGHill  said  :Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “first/last.” Use one or both words, or find words that mean the same. Bonus points if you start your post with “first/beginning/start” etc. and end with “last/end” etc. Enjoy!

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: JUST JOT IT JANUARY

Welcome, come on in it is lovely  to see youthe fires are lit  the cushions are plumped up and  we have  the coffee and tea on  the go  and the cakes and sweets are all set out. Paul  and  his guests  are all here  and they are enjoying  the warmth , food and drinks. We  have  tea  and coffee  from all over  the world not to mention all our cakes  and muffins  and  as Paul  calls  them sweets! Every single  one  is  calorie  free! Plus of course  we now have spirits  and liquors  to warm the coldest of  you.

It is  lovely  to see  you  all here today I  really  did  miss you all last  week! I hope  you all enjoyed Paul’s  post  over at  Marks place last Sunday! I was away in Spain, hubby  and I and our  two older lads. We stayed at  a nice place  and  we had plenty  of  good times  but I am afraid  my  heart  was not wholly in  it ! I did not want  to be abroad for Christmas. Our  youngest  son, his  wife  and  the Newbie  went to our daughter in law’s parents. ….

Anyway  here are some photos  of  the beautiful area  we stayed at.

Well we returned to freezing  weather  and I can  tell you it was quiet a shock!

Now  If We  Were having  Coffee: I would ask you how  your  Christmas  and New Celebrations went? Do  you celebrate  Christmas Eve, Christmas Day or  do you, like the Spanish Celebrate on the 6th January , the Epiphany, when the three kings arrive.

We had a lovely meal out Lunchtime on Christmas Eve.  In the evening though we found everything  was shut and the streets were empty as everyone  goes  home early  for what they call “Family  Meal”, so we went into the town square  and  looked  at  the  amazing  Nativity scene!  I did make a video   but have have put an older one  that I found on youtube   it  was taken in the daytime, mine was taken at  night and not as professional  so I have spared  you my video and a feeling of sea sickness! 🙂

Would  you like some cake? Did  you enjoy the video  it was beautiful at  night!  But  the video I  put up  shows  you much  more!

If  we were having coffee:  I would  ask  you  why  horrible  things happen in this  world. Paul mention  the Phu Family, Mr Phu  shot all of  his family  at three different  locations, why  was  this allowed to happen, especially  as  the man was known to have mental problems  and had  attacked  his wife previously! Well just before  Christmas, 24th December , Glasgow  was shocked  and stunned  when an out-of-control lorry careered along a packed pavement in George Square – which was packed with Christmas shoppers and families enjoying the annual festive carnival.  Read  more  here .

This  is so  sad so many lives touched.

If we were having coffee:  I would  offer  you more coffee and cake  and maybe  a liqueur coffee I think I would like an Irish  coffee

Irish Coffee

 

 

This Month January  is  Just Jot  It  January   run  by  LindaGHill  Well I am always up  for  challenge and I have done JusJoJan  before  and survived  so I am doing it again this  month/year. It  means I  must  jot out  a post  every day  of this month!……………….. eek! It is  a twofold blessing  not only  do  have to use  my grey matter I  get  to meet  lots of  new bloggers! I  hope  some of  them will come and join us  at our Sunday morning  get together’s.

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE:  I would say  lets  go and see what Paul’s  guest are up to lets  all mix  and have fun.  I would ask you if you would  like
another  cuppa, or  another cake . !   If we were having Coffee  Original idea  from  http://parttimemonster.wordpress.com/
