Where You Go – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

stream-of-consciousness-saturday-2018-19

 

 

Where you go

And what you do

Is entirely

Up to you.

Worry not

What others

Might think.

It’s your choice,

So choose.

It’s your life;

Live it.

It’s your story;

Write it.

The Role To Play – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

stream-of-consciousness-saturday-2018-19

 

 

A great man once said

That all the world

Is a stage

And the men and women

Are merely players.

As I make my way

Through this great play

We call Life

I have yet to find

The role that

I am meant to play.

But I will continue

To roll along

Like a stone

Until I find

My starring role.

Sway – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

socs-badge-2017-18

 

Brimming with happiness

She danced,

Her body swaying

Back and forth

Like trees in the wind,

Humming a tune

Only she could hear,

Without a care

Of who might see.

‘Tis The Season – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

socs-badge-2017-18

 

Leaves changing color.

A nip in the air.

Days growing shorter.

Pumpkin Spice everywhere.

Candy corn on the shelves.

Scary movies on the screen.

Jack o’lanterns and witches,

black cats and ghosts,

decorating the yards

and everyone’s homes.

Excited children deciding

on costumes to wear.

It’s that time of year again;

‘Tis the Halloween season.

Give & Get – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS #poem

socsbadge2016-17

 

Give it your all

No matter how small.

Give it your best shot

And you’ll get a lot.

Don’t fear failure;

Try and try again. Success will come

Success will come

when you put all your

heart into all that you do.

You get what you’ve given,

so give with your heart

and get what you’re due.

Almost – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS #poem #poetry

Reblogging this old poem I did in honor of #worldpoetryday

Jeanne Owens, author

socs-badge

I almost had it

I could feel it there

Tickling at my brain

Trying to get my attention

Trying to grow into something

And then came the darkness

And the burgeoning thought

The idea that had been forming

Was lost to Dreamland

Memories Of Us – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS #poem

socsbadge2016-17

The touch of your hair

And warmth of your breath

On my cheek.

The feel of your hand

In my hand.

The light of joy

In your eyes.

All of the places

That we’ve been.

All of the things

That we’ve done.

All of the plans

That we made.

But you have gone

Without a goodbye

And left me here

With only these

Memories of us.
