Good Morning! It is time for a poetic 5 minute Friday (in which I attempt to write a poem on a single word in five minutes) ! I know it has been oh so long since I have posted these and I want to get back to it. I’m still working on my poetry books and need to keep some poems “secret” (unpublished in the world) for that, but I want to write some exclusive poetry just for my readers at the same time. Some Five Minute Friday’s I may just write on the word without my personal challenge of doing poetry in five minutes. Whether poetry or just sharing my thoughts on the word of the week, I’m bringing FMF back. Today’s word is ALONE and it is a … Continue Reading →
It’s here! The latest poem I wrote for my inspirational poetry book. I know it’s not a poetic Friday, but since last Friday was Thanksgiving weekend, I am sharing this now. For those of you who don’t know, poetry has been a big part of my life since about the third grade. One of the poems I enjoyed in childhood was one from the book “A Child’s Garden of Verses” by Robert Louis Stevenson. Today’s poetry was inspired by the little poem “Happy Thought” that he wrote (as seen in the graphic image above). An Abundance of Riches When I see the discontent of the world, I have to wonder if there’s a lack of noticing. Are we blind to the riches we possess, Because of … Continue Reading →
For those of you who love my poetry and look forward to seeing what I concoct with the word of the day on these Five Minute Fridays-I’m sorry it’s been awhile! For weeks I couldn’t find FMF and thought it was on a hiatus, but I just learned that it has moved to another website. So, I have my word of the day. Today’s word is READY. A rhyming poem is what came out, as I thought to myself “Are We Ever Really Ready?” Changes are not always easy, and with Fall coming quickly upon us, we must bend and change a little along with the seasons. I hope you enjoy today’s inspiring poem! Are We Ever Really Ready? When is the butterfly ready to emerge from … Continue Reading →
Happy Friday my Friends! Bringing you some free verse poetry/prose today as I link up for another Five Minute Friday with Lisa Jo and the gang. Today’s 5 minute writing challenge word is RED. I wrote mine on a sunset I saw a couple of weeks ago, that I wanted to capture on photo, but couldn’t. It was one of those magical skies that made you feel like you almost were not on the street you live, but on some island in the Caribbean for vacation. Yes my friends, sometimes the mundane can be marvelous! That is something you will often find me doing here at We Live Inspired- really SEEING what is in front of me and sharing my perspectives on it all. I hope that you will … Continue Reading →
It’s Friday, (and although I am a little late)-I am bringing you Poetry in Five with today’s special word being FALL. I chose to go the direction of the seasons, with double meanings (as I often like to do when writing poetry) in both talking about the literal season of Fall , and season’s of life as well. I hope you enjoy today’s delight! Let me know what you think… Here goes: Lessons of Fall: Leaves of Gold- (their former green), The richest color briefly seen. A canopy of purest light, Falls glittering down- into the night. As winds of change draw ever near, The trees- They seem to have no fear. They know it’s time- They must transform. And with that, Something new is born. … Continue Reading →
