Everyday Inspiration – Day 4: A Story in a Single Image

woman-in-the-woods.jpg

So, again I slipped on the blogging university challenges! Oops. I’m back on it now … again Day 4 was to post a photo from a selection provided to spark a post for today. The above image is the one I’ve chosen.

I went to Cornwall in the summer with my family and our local doggy walk looked to be something very similar to this one. I actually posted a photo within a post at the beginning of my blogging journey. So the reason I chose this image? Looking at the photo makes me smile. It’s the serenity the Forrest or woods give me. There is something very special about walking through the trees walking your dog with the morning light peeking through the trees.

Its creates a very calming atmosphere where I can reflect on my life. Suffering from anxiety sometimes you just need the quiet to hear the jumble of thoughts in your mind.   As I hear the morning break with the sounds of birds the feelings of happiness often wash over me. Just getting out in the fresh air gives a feeling of release especially if I’m on my own. If I could have any wish it would be for there to be a wood on my doorstep that I could get up early in the morning and take my little Pup on a walk in. For me the nearest is a 10 minute walk away but believe me with 3 children to get ready for school I don’t have the time first thing to travel to a wood to begin my quiet ideal walk.

 Morning

In the morning sunshine,

I wander through the trees,

Listening to birds,

As I in and out weave.

❤️

The birds tweet a beautiful song,

As I walk Little Pup and reflect, strolling along.

So what about yourselves? Describe what would your ideal doggy walk is or would be? Do you get inspiration first thing in the morning? Do you spend time in the quiet woods to reflect while walk or running too?

 

 

 

 

Daily Prompt – Twinkle

My Brightest Stars!

06b3688bf6e68f195dd299922219f91e

When I saw the prompt was twinkle, I knew I had to participate. I have unfortunately lost both my parents and miss them terribly. Whenever I look up to the sky I look for the brightest stars and remember my parents.

No matter how old we are there is always a time when we are still that young child reliant on our Mum. There has been many time recently I have really needed to have a ‘chat’ and to know that they are proud of me.

This is written for them xx

Twinkling lights, in the sky,

How I watch you while I lie.

In my dreams I see my Mum,

Her very quick death, did really stun!

❤️

She is missed, by all of us

She would say don’t make a fuss

‘I can see you, from the sky’

‘Talk to me, please don’t cry’

❤️

‘We see you live your lives by day’

‘We see you also, at night prey’

‘Wipe your sadness away my child,’

‘Today I saw my grandchild smile’

❤️

We had no time to say goodbye

For that I give, a very sad sigh

I want you to know, I miss you every day

I wish I didn’t have to stay

❤️

‘I’m here with Dad, reunited again’

‘Living together without our pain’

‘We see your children grow and learn’

‘To hold them truly, we do yearn’

❤️

‘We’re proud of you our youngest child’

‘We see you when you smile’

‘Be happy around your children always’

‘Those wonderful children you do raise’

❤️

I love you both, Mum and Dad!

I promise not to be sad!

❤️

‘One day we will be together’

‘But for now, we send love forever!’

It’s her 15th birthday and she asked for a chocolate cake. Covered and decorated with chocolate dipped strawberries! Did she get it? Of course she did! It was exactly what she asked for!

She wanted a Devil’s Food Cake, All Sticky and gooey!

With chocolate buttercream in the middle and chocolate ganache on top!

She wanted chocolate dipped strawberries on top! Chocolate splattered in a pattern on top!

Daily Prompt – Eclipse

What would happen if, in those brief few minutes, when the moon covers the sun, a parallel world can be accessed through the eclipse?

What if an eclipse was in fact a time-leap into another world.

Where would your world be?

What would you see in a parallel world?

There are three types of lunar eclipses: penumbral, when the Moon crosses only the Earth’s penumbra; partial, when the Moon crosses partially into the Earth’s umbra; and total, when the Moon crosses entirely into the Earth’s umbra.

Daily Prompt – Ghost

It’s late at night and as I walk along the dark winding road, the darkness envelopes me and I find the temperature drop.

The clouds cover the moon and the atmosphere darkens and envelopes me in a chill.

The road is clear, no traffic or noise. But as I continue my journey to an unknown place the fog comes in and around me. The time it takes for me to reach the end of the road, the fog begins to clear and I see a car parked at a strange angle at the side of the road … a dark figure ahead of me, laying on the floor …

I try to run as I realise the car has crashed and steam comes out the front, the engine still running … as I approach it feels like I’m floating in slow motion to find out the fate of the figure …

As I draw closer I reach the figure, as I look down I realise it is in fact a still figure of myself!

I’m a ghost!

Daily Prompt – Carry

image

I Await You

 

In the days you were growing,

I carry and bear your weight.

Life grows inside of me,

A little person given by fate.

 

The child I love already,

Is loved in ways unknown.

The days turn into weeks,

as you grow where you were sown.

 

The time is slow and painful,

As your weight pulls down on me.

The end is slow in getting here,

My baby, I wait to meet and see.

 

The day is here at last,

Your born into the world.

Your perfect little body,

All tiny, pink and curled

 

The beautiful child we created,

She is perfect in every way.

Ten tiny toes and fingers,

As brand new as the day.

 

Little face, soft cheeks and skin,

Upon her face I gaze,

I love her more than ever,

She will be loved ’til the end of days.
