Word of the Day – Splenetic – ‘Tuck Me In’

Classes have started back up so work is a little crazy. We got an unexpected 1,300 students for dinner alone these last three days and lets just say the cafeteria's stock of food is running a bit low. Today's Word of the Day is Splenetic, as in something marked by a bad temper, malevolence, or… Continue reading Word of the Day – Splenetic – ‘Tuck Me In’

Word of the Day – Serendipity – ‘Serendipity’

I couldn't think of a better title for this poem other than the word I jumped off to write it. Serendipity is the faculty or phenomenon of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for. 'Serendipity' Let's love again for a moment or two- Feel a little less fear, a little more ravenous. Come out and into the rain, leave it… Continue reading Word of the Day – Serendipity – ‘Serendipity’

Word of the Day – Crucible – ‘Slam Your Door’

Today's word of the day is crucible, or a sever test. I had a little trouble naming this one, I considered naming it 'Test of Time and Love' but it didn't feel quite right... I might write a poem with that title, but I feel like it would be a little lighter or maybe upbeat.… Continue reading Word of the Day – Crucible – ‘Slam Your Door’

Word of the Day – Inalienable – ‘Confession’

Today's word of the day was inalienable, meaning incapable of being alienated, surrendered, or transferred. It took me so long to write this. I didn't want to get political or sad, so I tried to make something beautiful, unfortuantely I feel it's lacking... a lot. Maybe I'll rewrite it when I'm not so tired and… Continue reading Word of the Day – Inalienable – ‘Confession’

Shadow of May – Day Twenty-Three – ‘Slowly, Tenderly’

Have I ever mentioned how hard it is for me to name things? Like, I'm terrible at it most days, but today I just couldn't decide.. But I guess this will work. Today's Shadow of May asked: What is my hatred to my energy levels?   'Slowly, Tenderly' I have learned, ever so slowly To… Continue reading Shadow of May – Day Twenty-Three – ‘Slowly, Tenderly’

Shadow of May – Day Eight – ‘Living Alone’

Finally caught up! Here is today's Shadow of May! Oddly enough, all the cards I drew were extremely positive in light of the question (and four of five were Major Arcana...): What can solitude help me with? 'Living Alone' She’s asked often if she’s married, Whom, they wonder, could be so blessed To have such… Continue reading Shadow of May – Day Eight – ‘Living Alone’

Shadow of May – Day Three – ‘They Told Me’

The school semester is almost over and work has been a little crazy, but I still managed to get today's piece done! Today's Shadow of May questions were: How do I treat others? How do I treat myself?   'They Told Me' Home is where the heart is They will tell you But what if… Continue reading Shadow of May – Day Three – ‘They Told Me’

Shadow of May – Day Two – ‘Falsely Beat’

So today's Shadow of May question was "How do you express Love?" And here is how: "Falsely Beat" Do you hear that false heart beat? It’s mine, it’s all mine, and it hurts To hurt them all so much. I lie. I lied. I wanted them to love so much more than me I wanted… Continue reading Shadow of May – Day Two – ‘Falsely Beat’

Shadow Of May – Day One – ‘Endless My Love’

So I should probably put a disclaimer on how lame the next few poems are gonna be, because this month I'm doing the tarot challenge Shadow of May -  a tarot based shadow work challenge. Shadow working is generally an exploring of feelings and habits you'd rather avoid/are a bit personally loaded. I'm not including… Continue reading Shadow Of May – Day One – ‘Endless My Love’

NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty-Eight – ‘The Goal’

I was a bit later than usual today, but I managed to work out a Skeltonic poem per the prompts request. Now, i'm a little mixed about this one. I like it, but outside of the words involved, I find putting this thought into words to be lengthy. Keeping my lines short was quite hard..… Continue reading NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty-Eight – ‘The Goal’
