Three inspired ladies go for a walk

They walked in nature cool and clean

This day the set out on an adventure

An adventure at which some may balk


That day they set out with pedometer

Into a field of brilliant pink daisies

They tread and tread without a care

Their happy hearts were all aflutter

Of a sudden they discovered that the world was flat and they fell off. So much for history and science. Evolution?

Mama Zen asks us to write something in 77 words or less that shocks. Hey, this is the best I can do.  I don’t even watch thrillers. I guess I don’t like to be shocked. I must say, though that it was fun. Thanks, Mama Zen!

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. it’s always interesting to me that we’ve a higher development chance to instinctually be and respond without rankor to others…yet where have you noted no lack of highly developed military training within the monks? so the christian sorry i don’t know all the lines from all the different flavors out there… says if someone/enemy smites your face…turn the other cheek – no where in this does it say to be begging for disrespect, it simply says do not respond of egoic injury…such is a waste. or if an enemy strikes one’s face- do do truly turn the other cheek as one lands a flowerpot back…. okay slapstick comedy gems and warped teaching 😀

  2. Evolution or de-evolution? I love the flat earth ending, I wasn’t ready for that.
    “Shocking!!!?” ‘Surprising’ for sure.
    Similarities: My blogging started with wanting to leave a smart aleck comment on an old family friend’s blog that my sister steered me to. I had to do Blogger to be able to post the comment. I began to post poems after I found “One Single Impression” a poetry blogging center. It went defunct so then I went full time with the Toads here. Before I had visited now and then.
    It wasn’t my family that didn’t like poetry, I just didn’t ever write anything for them. I didn’t study meter and rhyme in 10th grade English until I was a Senior because my grade 10 teacher order an 11th grade set of books. My first ten grades were at two different Nebraska country schools. (BTW, Mrs. Jim and I will be married 43 years as of the 24th of February.)
