What the World Needs Now

dVerse a poem

The Rosary

Beads to hold between fingers.
Living, breathing, life’s weapon!
We pray first through the short links—
Represent — our life, short! Next
The endless circle — Eternity!
Suggesting infinity! Never-ending beads
Slip along the ring around a blessed
String. Perfumed as the scent of a rose
Rising to heaven! She offers us her
Baby Son! It all began with the angel’s
Words, “Hail Mary full of grace.”
God’s creation perfectly as His Mother
Must be! She gave us the rosary!

Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge

The Great American Betrayal

GO Dog

I wonder why! Don’t you?
Who is the real party of hate?
Who incites others to harass?

Harass those who want Free Speach.
Harass Trump supporters or worse?


Laugh and approve as hatefuls pose
with a severed head of the President?

Boo, Hoo, and wah-wah they cry mommy,
all the way home! You poor little dears.

Are you so offended AGAIN!



Although it feels AND WE are in that ship! Remember!
Remember a story; Matthew 8;24
It is written: “And behold a great tempest arose in the sea, so that the boat was covered with waves, but He was asleep. And they came to Him, and awaked Him, saying: Lord, save us, we perish.
And Jesus saith to them: Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith?

Our day is coming and sooner than you may believe.

Ah! Another Challenge

Fandango’s Challenge

Fandango did it again!

What a great idea for a challenge; looking back, I posted this below on January 9, 2019.
I couldn’t pass the opportunity to publish, since it explains why I woke up this morning so happy! (My post for another time)
Happy New Year to all! Here is my flashback inspired by the famous Fandango!

My FLASHBACK FROM January 9, 2019 TWO years ago, from TODAY!

dVerse

dVerse IS BACK!

For dVerse where we are asked to write a Haibun about a new beginning a first!

Writing not one but four, and this will be my fifth post today, that is a first for me.

Another new beginning I recently experience was moving from my large three bedrooms, three-story home into my converted basement into what I call my cozy cave. (bottom story)

Why the move? Its been eight years since my beloved husband passed, and my six children have long left the nest. My life is in the state of the reverse; in other words, the children I cared for will now care for me.

Now that the packing and sorting out “stuff” is over, finding places for my keepsakes here in my cozy cave was challenging but fun.

I bet you wonder who is living upstairs? Two doggies, one cat, two lovely children (girls), and their mother, my daughter.

Alone, no! Not I
Noise yes!—Quietly! Snowfalls
Float toward the goal

Ah! Another Challenge

What is the FUTURE of my BLOG?


History of my Blog

https://lifeafter50forwomen.com/2021/01/04/blogging-insights-my-blog-in-2021/TODAY’S QUESTIONS 
How do you see your blog in 2021? What are your hopes and aspirations for your blog this year?

Why has my blog evolved into what it is today? The essence or heart of my blog, when I posted my first time has slightly changed.
I intended to post things like this one published here, one of several first things I published. Click here to read.

AS a beginner blogger and to my surprise, I started to see comments and likes; as I began to read other bloggers, I discovered “prompts & challenges.”

I love a challenge! PLUS Along with the prompts and challenges!

My amateur/newbie poetry was born; Along with my stern opinions on politics; “forget-me-not” my attempt at humor, I tried to interject here and there.

My followers, when they slowly came, was to me a surprise!
Some are atheists but, for the most part, very polite to me; others are therapists of a sort. Few are religious, or I haven’t noticed yet!
Like myself, we are all seeking, “Seek and you shall find.”

Thinking now for 2021 I will carry on, adding once in awhile a story about a Saint I admire. My hope to be helpful to others as so many people here have inspired me of how to blog, write poetry seek out “Found Poetry.” And to just SEEK while learning new things.

Word of the Day Challenge

A New Year brings the act of RENEWAL

The word of the day is RENEWAL and why not? Happy New Year to all!

Bloggers everywhere are posting the good, bad, and ugly of the want to be forgotten 2020 year of Our Lord.

It was okay for me — I don’t go out much anymore anyway, to church, grocery store, and a doctor trip; plus, where I live, they are all open.

Most of the time, since I go out very seldom, the worst that happens to me is I forget to take my mask until I drive up to my destination.

I didn’t get sick, not even a little sniffle, although the dreaded virus was all around me, some family members, friends, and the funniest part was they all had to be tested to make sure they were sick.

Don’t get me wrong; I believe the virus is serious; my prayers are for it to be over ASAP. Who knows, maybe I will get it in 2021, yet I can’t worry about that either, knowing I will not live forever anyway.

At this point in my life, right now! No! I will not be vaccinated. For those that want to be, that is your choice, remember “My Body My Choice.” As the liberals like to chant.

In the meantime, I will try to keep my New Year resolution, giving up my favorite treat, candy! Saying extra prayers for everyone, even all of you and everybody in the world, since God is not limited, why not pray for the world as a whole!

It certainly is a time for balance and getting on with our life; LIFE a gift from God. Remember always to please God not man, that goes for the government too! Put God first and I guarantee you will have a great New Year!

Once Upon a Time … Oh oh!

three line tales, week 257: a woman walking over a narrow bridge over a body of water
Three Line Tales

Once upon a time, a child on a walk; wondered how to cross the murky water that greeted her.

Seeing a long worn bridge just ahead, tic-tac-toe, she thought — what fun!

Her tiny little steps ever so carefully she crept, oh oh O is amiss — turning she went back.
