Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

Mermaid Fantasy Mystical Pixabay

The body talks
Should I listen?
Of course, I should but I’ve work to do,
exams to take,
people needing
me for God’s sake.

If I listen, I may lose,
If I don’t, I’ll be as good as dead,
There’s work pending, rest and sleep at stake,
Is it just me?
Or life’s complicated as hell.

Octopuses tentacles strangling me.
This bath of algae tangled in my hair,
And crimson veins,
I’d do well to be a mermaid and swim out to sea .

The sea water is salty,
I float amidst the dolphins and whales,
My braid running loose in search of Posideon, the water God,
May be he could help me find the Atlantis,
And I live my life in forever bliss

The choice is always ours. 
Get washed up to shore or
take my chances and soar?
Did you ask, “Is it complicated”?
Of course, Anything worth having is.
And then as if by magic,
the tragedy unfolds
when you least expect to find it and
Hook line and sinker!
You’re free!

There’s a tragedy, there’s a miracle,
Everything is in our hands,
The choice is ours and chains are tight,
The goal is right in-front of the eye,
But the path has thorns,
That increases its worth and the complication as well!

This duality of life, always at play.
Sift through the buried treasures,
take your head out of the sand,

Life’s changing,
New experiences and dirt on the way,
We hop and flop and jump around,
And that’s the beauty of life.

I love these organic moments that pop up in life like chatting with Sheerren The Lightning Bug and breaking out into a poem turning everyday challenges into something of the sublime. These moments always bring joy to my day. I don’t look for collaborations because I am just too busy but when they happen authentically, I savor the sweetness and connection of the moment. Thanks for playing Sheereen and to all of you for reading.

As you can see, it’s another poem honoring Strong Woman everywhere to honor “Wounds I Healed The Anthology Wounds I healed: Poetry of Strong Woman coming in June, here’s to our trio Gabriela Maria MiltonIngrid Wilson from EiF and Nick Reeves.

Find everyday moments that make you smile and give you the strength to carry on in your day. It’s not Friday yet but put a little Fun Fri-Yay in your Wednesday!

Always Blessings, and Always Love in good times and bad,

💖

Cindy and Sheereen

Did you get my comment about using your Memorial Day poem/picture in my post today? It is so loving and appropriate. I moved back the publish time until I hear from you. 🙂 If I don’t hear, I’ll leave it out.

I can hear you roaring Cindy!!! 🐅🦁🐆 You are the “bestest” ever my friend! 😁😍😄 Hit the mat and then have a nice intake of fruit, preferably in the juice form of grapes with a hint of fermentation>>> 🍷🍷🍷. It’s like giving yourself a treat (you know, like we do with our pets when they do what we command). LMBO 😂😆🤣

You made me smile, Lady Cindy. Love you for it.
Lovely imagery. Xoxo My fave lines:
“Is it complicated”?
— Of course, it is as it wouldn’t be worthy otherwise.

“when you least expect to find it …”
— yup 👍🏼

“Hook line and sinker! 
You’re free!
There’s a tragedy, there’s a miracle,”
— yes, just like that! 👏

“We hop and flop and jump around,”
— We stumble and fall and sometimes we fly! 😉
Love this. 👏 I wish you more miracles. Xoxo

As your poem progressed I could imagine so many women I know trapped in the dilemma of allowing the rest their body is asking for, and the responsibilities, demands and achievements in life calling them on the other hand. How can I rest – they ask until their body forces them to. I love the imagery you create of swimming in the ocean of life, the duality of tragedy and miracles, how choice is our power at play. There is such resilience and strength through all kinds of choices made – there is devotion to self and others alternating. I love and agree with your perspective of collaborations happening autehntically – it is beautiful that way 🙂
