treasures? (Shadorma- 2 attempts)

 

Take 1

estate sale:

everything must go

priced to move

9 to 5

find your recycled treasures

their loss is your gain

โ€”

Take 2

at first glance

the nude is the find

well placed

distraction

pirate’s trunk: gold and jewels

eye on wrong booty

thoughts ~haiku

thoughts brew, filter through
this thick primordial ooze
percolating words

time to write

mysterious

yet strong sensation

fingers twitching

eyeballs itching

something is gnawing at my brainstem

and somersaulting in my belly

what in the words?!

scrabble words

guess they want

to be let out!

New page to Highlight Featured Friends

Found this beautiful image on several sites yet no idea who to credit.

Found this beautiful image on several sites yet no idea who to credit.

Hi All!

As some of youย readย awhile back I added a Featured Friends section on my home page. ย I have added a few more people to that section and decided to also create a separate page for this as well. ย You can find it next to Home, Awards & Who is Responsible for This? (my about me page)

Again, please don’t be offended if you are not on this list. I will revise as I go along ๐Ÿ™‚

My goal here is to just a highlight just a handful of people who:
-actively participate (comments etc)
-whose talent I admire
-who inspire me

I “follow” quite a few blogs but the following are ones that I have truly connected with.

They are a diverse group offering everything from poetry to photography and humor to artwork.

Please visit each of these amazing people. There is something for everyone. Enjoy!

~Melanie

Seeking Solitude

photo inspiration provided by Leo Oras

photo inspiration provided by Leo Oras

how I long for a place like that my time in which to spend

a glorious, peaceful, isolated place -of mountain, lake and wind

where my weary mind can rest and my battered soul can mend

surrounded by nature’s beauty that my imagination cannot transcend

no one else around to inflict with me, no one else with which to pretend
