Dish This. Fuck you, but I still love you.

All of us come into this life seeking something, and I believe that ultimately that something is love and joy. Not just love and joy for ourselves, but for others. If we were born into this world with at least one person to care for us, be it a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, or teacher…

Day 1

Running light footed Wind pushing me forward Breathing is a breeze. Clouds beneath my feet Bright and sunny skies above Music in my ears. Half a mile in My heart is beating faster My feet feel heavy. Yes! Stop sign ahead Run or walk…tough decision Run, you can do it. Focus on breathing Looking ahead…

A note from my kid

The other day I opened a red envelope that I pulled from my kid’s backpack. Inside was a letter that gave me a chuckle. Dear dad, I love you butt I do not like yur berd. I love Mom the most. Your friend, {unsigned}

Jolt, A Haiku

My heart stops beating Paddles jolt me back to life Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep. 🙂 Speaking of being jolted… have you ever been jolted out of sleep to find that you feel like your entire body is vibrating really fast, as if you’re oscillating? You may even feel like your bed is shaking, but…

A Timely Affair

Time! You drive me crazy. I am obsessed with you. I think about you all the time. I can’t get enough of you and your ticks. Baby, you are so precise. I only wish I could hold onto you. But you wait for no one. Tick, tick, tick, catch me if you can, you tease….

Minimal

In celebration of World Poetry Day, here’s my attempt at writing minimally via a haiku… Leaves bound but swirling, releasing scents of citrus, hypnotize me now. And another haiku… Waiting patiently, as meshed earl grey tea bag steeps, staining hot water.  And perhaps another? Diced leaves so fragrant, sweating in boiling water, to serve as detox. Daily…

Dish This – Play

I’m going to start a series I call “Dish This” because often while I am doing the mundane task of washing dishes, my mind wanders and plays with all sorts of ideas. So, just a minute ago while I was washing my dishes, and my kids were entertaining themselves with their shows (it’s spring break…

Kids

I’ve always wanted children. I imagined having three, one to turn each end of a jump rope and another to jump, because I loved playing jump rope games like double dutch and especially Chinese jump rope as a kid, but I only have one sister and finding other kids to play with us was not always…

Disney Lush

We took the kids to Disney World this past weekend. It was our first trip there as a family. I was excited to escape to this magical place and be a kid again. I was especially excited to relive the magic of Disney through my kids’ eyes.  It’s suppose to be “The Most Magical Place…

Daily Prompt: Devastation

My first daily prompt! Woohoo! But damn… what a prompt! NO!! I can see it coming, but I can’t get there fast enough. My heart beats like the wings of a hummingbird… so fast, so strong…hurry… but my body is still…quivering. My heart flies out of my chest and into my throat…but it is too…

My spiritual journey

I have never been a religious person. My parents were raised Catholic, but they did not teach my sister and me the religion, nor did they practice it themselves. We were taught to respect adults, finish our meals, live minimally, and study hard in school. God, church, prayers, even Santa Claus, were not a part…

Leggo My Eggo

Happy New Year! I have to confess. I haven’t been feeling the happy nor the motivation of what a new year is suppose to bring. All I feel like doing is sleeping or binging Netflix, but then I feel like crap for not seizing the day and doing something creative.
