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.

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

If only – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

socs-badge-2015

 

 

If Only

If only I hadn’t done that,

I think,  though I know

Not what I did.

If only I hadn’t said that,

I think, though I know

Not what I said.

What if I had done

something different?

What if I had behaved

Another way?

Would things be different?

Would you still

Be here with me, then?

A Cat In Brazil – National Limerick Day #LimerickDay #poetry

Seeing as today is #LimerickDay, I thought I would share a silly limerick I wrote a long time ago when I was a kid.

 

There once was cat in Brazil

Who smelled chicken cooking on a grill.

He jumped and landed on the roof,

With an “oof”,

Slid down, and missed the grill.

Dream Chase

I’m not much of a poem writer. I prefer writing stories. I don’t write poems much unless the muse strikes, which isn’t very often. This is just a little poem I wrote a few years ago. Hope you like it.

 

Dream Chase

 

 

Like stars up in the sky
My dreams shine bright and clear,
And yet just out of reach.
How I long to grasp my stars
And see my dreams come true.

To be like a bird flying high,
Close to the stars.
To have my dreams within my grasp.

Dreams of Love.
Dreams of Fame.
Dreams of Happiness.

But I will not give up my dreams.
With Hope and Faith as my guides
I will spread my wings and fly.
I will soar up high like a bird
And pluck my stars from the sky.
