sometimes life is like that

Somehow it is May

I don’t know where the time has gone.  It’s been ages since I’ve posted one word on my poor neglected blog and even longer since I have visited any of you.  Life has been, well life… and you all know how that goes.

So I’m not here to make any promises of writing or visiting regularly because who knows what will be thrown at me next but IF anyone is still following…or hell… even interested at this point, just letting you know I’m still alive.

Time is a slippery thing

hard to get a firm grasp on it

sometimes it flies by

as if being chased

by a bear

on fire

other times it feels like days have passed 

yet your watch’s face reflects a mere five minutes since last you looked

pedaling poet

I was just outside

pondering my inability

to produce any post-worthy poetry

when a drunken poet

rode by on a bicycle

performing spoken word

loudly

for the neighborhood

I only caught part of it

as he pedaled past

in the dark

but I’m sure it was beautiful

and profound…

“…camero burning rubber

Danny Glover

got to wear a rubber…” — the Pedaling Poet

 

You have to admire his confidence to share his words with anyone who was listening.  Got me to thinking that I should just post something whether I think it is “post-worthy” or not.

SPAM Comments or Found Poetry?

Hi!  I’m sure you all get a bunch of SPAM comments…I know I do.  So I decided to take all of them that I have received in the last 2 days and make them into “poetry.”

These are the rules I set/ imposed upon myself:

1- You must use every single word from all comments

2- Each line of “poetry” must be comprised of consecutive words from one comment (No rearranging to actually make sense or prettify)

3- Any words added to help with flow must be in bold

4- Punctuation and emoticons can be ignored

Without further ado…here are my humble offerings:

 

1.

It is estimated that up to 90% of the US population

will have the virus by the time they reach age 50

folks you actually recognize

mark it on the calendar

so you know

your year to die

alternately

you must eat a food from the 11-to-20 gram net carb list

at the following times: 2, 6, & 9

for any high quality chance

to not contract the disease

I most unquestionably will make certain to do not forget

Even when I am at home on the phone

Or on this website


2.

I at last stumbled upon

uk

It’s awesome to visit


 

3.

You Bookmarked my website

and after reading the views of all my mates

(TalkTalk)

you hyperlinked this web page

It’s awesome

 


 

4.

while I am also eager of getting knowledge

by exploring in Yahoo

articles or weblog posts

I still cannot

correctly identify the

star behind each door

and that is all what one needs to know

I’ve been exploring for a bit

on this sort of area

So i’m glad to exhibit

this website


 

5.

He was a loose cannon &

seems incredibly complicated

but I’ve an incredibly good uncanny feeling

that I discovered exactly what I needed

so without caution

We hopped on the ferry back

and had our last sleep in Croatia


 

6.

If someone contacts you to

suggest you upgrade to broadband

& says phone and internet typically costs

an arm and a leg

They are speaking approximately!

 


 

7.

I feel that if

you are

Claiming this cash

We can have a

Pension pot

if saved over

between us


 

8.

Thanks a bunch for sharing this

and spending the time with

Studying this information

Please also seek advice from

Sky Bet Football League

on the topic of this article

and give it a look regularly.


 

 

They are not great BUT it was fun and a couple really work for me 😉  What do you think?

Early morning conversations or why I love my husband

“Wakey, wakey” I say in a sing-song way as I rub my hand across his back

for which I’m rewarded a grunt and a groan

“Hunny the clock says 3:33…(pause)

….Get up, I’ll start coffee.”

He says in a voice still groggy with sleep, “333….The mark of the midgetbeast.”

 

[This conversation took place 3/3/2015]

Somethings just have to be shared.  😉
