 Seven things about me...

 I am the youngest of three children. I have a sister that is three years older than me and a brother who died when he was 10 months old, sadly, I never got to meet him. Recently I have found other children of my father, My sisters Wendy and Kim... it is a blessing to have them in my life. I hope to meet the others one day.

I LOVE TO WRITE!!! The written word is so great in my eyes, that I cant wait each day to write more, even if its just to say hello. That's one of the many reasons I PROMPT others to write... It's so cool to see the response to a prompt...I really like to see how people think . I'm a poet in my heart, although there are times I have thoughts that I'm a terrible writer..go figure!

I hold a lot of blue ribbons and trophies for horse shows. Although my sister Julie took it a lot farther than I ever did. We rode horses everyday in my childhood and rode in our hometown and neighboring parades. My mom made all of our costumes by hand every year. That is one of my fondest memories of my Mom, sister and I doing things together.

I am a Taurus, in every way. My Mom, Sister and Father are as well....our birthdays are all within a 3 week period of each other, all of our first names start with the letter J. 
 I have no use for Church, although I do believe in God. To me , its all too commercial.
Christmas is my favorite holiday, but Summer is my favorite time of year.

I like the snow, but I can't stand to be cold...EVER!!!

We pass this award on to these wonderful bloggers...Each of whom we admire for their writes, as well as their STYLISH BLOGS

We thank all of our followers for making us feel welcome in the poetry and blogging world... each of you are very special to us...

WOW.... ( Words of Wednesday)

WOW.... ( Words of Wednesday) here at Dodge Writes, which means the blogs we follow are going to be crammed into two or more poems. If you are joining us today on this adventure please note it is not necessary for you to do these prompts this way, but we do hope you stop in at each of these wonderful sites. You will enjoy each of them.

For our prompt today we are trying ...The ZaniLa Rhyme... a form created by Laura Lamarca. It has a minimum of three stanzas and no maximum poem length. There are 4 lines per stanza and the rhyme scheme for this form is abcb, with a syllable count of 9/7/9/9 per stanza.

The 3rd line is written as a conjunction and this line repeats at the 3rd line in each stanza, but each time the order is switched up. For example, if your 3rd line is: Make me belong and sing me a song, then you'll repeat it in the 2nd stanza as: Sing me a song and make me belong.




Three word Wednesday @ This week's words:
Cleanse; verb: Make something thoroughly clean; rid (a person, place or thing) of something seen as unpleasant, unwanted or defiling; free (someone) from sin or guilt.
Knead; verb: Work into dough or paste with the hands; make (bread or pottery) by such a process; massage or squeeze with the hands.
Melt; verb: Become liquefied by heat; become more tender or loving; noun: An act of melting.
Write a letter Wednesday @ This week let's write a letter to an imaginary character or friend, or to the person who brought this mythical person to life and made us believe.
We are also sharing our writes on Stop Poetry @  Post your poem, read the others and get read !!
Now you know why we call today WOW !!! And here we go... OURS IS...
You made it fun to cleanse and then dye
the eggs we'd dip and you'd hide
You made Easter fun for everyone
Baskets filled with so much joy inside
You would knead fresh garlic in the bread
our meal you worked on all day
For everyone you made Easter fun
still alive in memories today
To thank you would make your big heart melt
like chocolate on our face
You made Easter fun for everyone
Great times with you I often retrace
How do you like that... we got them all in one today !!
WOW out !!!

Carry on Tuesday This week, the first line from William Blake's poem The Angel.... I dreamt a dream! What can it mean?

Last but not least we have Gratituesday @  Lisa asks us to Write What happened today or this week that am I grateful for?

We are grateful for our health, being able to walk, talk, write and live in the NOW !
We are very grateful for the ever loving friends and family members that make our life worthwhile.
AND we are oh so grateful the the weather has finally warmed enough for our flowers to SHOW OFF... (tee hee hee)


Crunch that sweet flavor
A nut worth savoring
Salty on your buds
Hard to put down
Every thing tastes better
When cashews are added



Night air drifts softly through the window
I dreamt a dream, what can it mean?
Swirling feathers,  autumn leaves,
fairies dancing with bee's
talking to the trees
eyes wide open
flying free
yellow green
with purple hues
taunting our bare feet
we run through without care
hearts of glee, hands enfolded
we reach to share a sweet first kiss
and once again I wake without you
