When the world is right

and we know it is not always so

What little girl

Doesn’t see her daddy

As a megalith?

A tower of strength

and power and protection

that she loves and adores

One she models all future

lovers against

whether she realises it

or not

Emails, texts, Facetime, will have to suffice

To tease and flirt and so entice

They cannot touch, they cannot kiss

Wait they must, to share their bliss

Situation must be rectified

 Before anyone is satisfied

Grass tickling legs

Lying on your back

Head cradled in hands

Gazing at endless clouds

Believing in forever

His lips sardonic

he watched from his bench

the kitschy scene unfold before him

Like those endless commercials

or sappy movies

Two lovers run towards each other

(preferably in a meadow for better effect)

Their bodies colliding in a loving impact

arms entwine

lips meld

And you feel can feel that

for reasons unknown, they were forced apart

He wiped away a tear

Isn’t that just beautiful?

The same bit of an annoying tune

plays on repeat in my mind

pauses only

when unwanted thoughts creep in

Bills, kids, mother-in-law’s estate, am I enough?

Each jostling for my attention

How can Morpheus possibly do his thing

amidst such din?

Have you noticed that young women today have taken on a particularly peristeronic characteristic?

How do you mean? Not sure they’d like to be compared to pigeons, mind.

Then they shouldn’t stand there knock-kneed and pigeon-toed!

Hah! Yet another stupid trend brought to us by Gwynnie, to make them appear younger and thinner.

Simple beauty painting the sky

in subtle and nuanced palette

the softest of violets and blues

morphing into brighter pinks and oranges

reminiscent

of love’s journey, where

A chance encounter turns into a friendship

Grows

Glows

into love

How DO you pronounce this word?

It depends on your level of cultural know-how.

Pffft.

Okay, and your mother tongue.

An anglophone, such as you, will pronounce it KA-VA-LEER.  I can’t help but think of a cad, someone disdainful.

However, if you are a francophone, comme moi, you pronounce it KA-VA-LI-YAY. Way more debonair, n’est-ce pas? Brings to mind a gallant knight, a gentleman.

 

OK. Random photo. Only thing I had remotely knight-like was this one made of butter!

So, it’s no longer the official weekend though it is MINE…  Besides, I didn’t have three seconds to myself during work and my brain was mush after so. Today it is. Thank you, Sammi, I think… whatever possessed you to use this word?  Love the challenge of trying to think outside of the box.

I’m in syzygy

You’re a celestial body aligned with a moon and planet?

No, metaphorically speaking

How so?

Neck, back and feet – working in conjunction – a straight line of pain

Ruth was so concentrated on ripping out the vines creeping along the top of the cedar hedge, she never heard her son approach.

His\ “Mom, what’re you doing?” nearly made her jump out of her skin

“What’s it look like I’m doing? I’m pulling out these vines.

“Why? They’re kinda pretty, no?

“I admit they are. I’ve never seen yellow ones like these. Usually, they’re those pink ones that look like morning glories.”

“Poor unwelcome flowers.”

“They’re weeds!”

“Tomayto, tomahto.”

“They’ll take over. Remember the ‘Rumor Weed’?”

Ha ha Mom. You’re hilarious.

We are not a religious family at all. However, a friend of mine got us hooked on Veggie Tales and one of our favourites was LarryBoy and the Rumor Weed

The movie is a whole 33 minutes long but for anyone who wants to, just click here.
