Food. Feed Me Food
|Food. Marvelous food.
Once, twice, three times a day.
Over the feed bag I must congregate.
Dagnabit, I like food.
Forget the strawberries,
Ever and a day we have been at odds.
Even the smell can set me off.
Dear to my heart, comfort food indeed, are Bugles!
Man if you feed me a bowl full of Bugles,
Everything is alright with the world.
Me, the other half, and a big old pot of beans. Um, um, good!
Food, Feed Me Food and we'll be good.

|Prompt: Which of the four seasons best fits your personality?
Summer is a sunny day, sometimes mixed with rain.
Under a tree I like to sit and write about what inspires me.
Making a bee line for the pool when it opens,
Melting in the hot sun, but enjoying the coolness of the pool.
Easing into a routine at work overnight, and stepping outside on break.
Resting after a hard night at work, in the air conditioned coolness.
Summer is my season, and that's my story to the Nth degree.

As long as Rhonda is with me, it does not matter here I live. My happiness is not tied to where I li e, but that Rhonda is with me. Going on 27 years and I've been happy to be with ther even when we were evicted and lived in a hotel for 7 years.

|Prompt: When you think of succulence, do you think of a food, person, plant, or something else. Tell us what the word brings to mind.
Food is what I think about when that word comes to mind.
Oh the savory taste of a piece of chicken cooked just right.
Or a chicken fried steak, as tender as can be, the aroma just filling the air with it's perfection.
Darn, now I'm hungry and all we have is some left over spaghetti.

|Prompt: Do you think it is possible to heal on our own, or do we always need to reach out for the comfort of other people in order to fully heal?
Here is a word in answer to the prompt.
Every person has a need for the touch of others, the connection with someone.
As far as healing on our own, I don't think it's possible.
Life throws some mighty big illnesses at us.
It even deals often debilitating blows, making it necessary to have help.
Nearly every day, a loved one can be found in a home caring for another.
Going to great lengths to keep him/her comfortable so healing can be made complete.
Healing on your own, with the proper medication is possible. However your physical well being is only one part of us. We are more than physical creatures and the mental, emotional, and spiritual must be incorporated in the healing process.

Mars, Mars, ah Mars
|Prompt: Would you volunteer to be one of the first colonists on Mars if it meant you could never return to earth?
Men are from Mars, and so is the candy.
An interesting question, considering this is the anniversary of 9-11-2oo1.
Realizing that I would never see the earth I was born upon again could give me pause to consider.
Surely there are those who would jump at the chance to leave it all behind.
MARS is a long way away.
As it stands now, my answer would be know.
Right here on this planet is where my roots are.
Serving the Lord here and now is what I must do.
MARS, ah MARS, would that we could resettle upon your soils.
A number of this world will one day get that opportunity.
Remembering the things that happened here on earth, I'll have to say God Speed.
See, I'm a earth bound kind of a guy.

Forgiven vs Un-forgiven
|Prompt: Write about forgiveness why it is important to you.
Forgiveness is vital.
Oh the release is literal.
Remembering o'er and o'er
Grievous acts weighs the heart and mind down.
Important to forgive and ask for forgiveness?
Very much so.
Every day we do "big pieces of stupid."
Not realizing, at times, the impact we are having on others.
Ego gets in the way and we think we are in the right.
Surely he/she had to be set on the right track. Right?
Simple communication is turned into a weapon of mass chaos.
FORGIVENESS is now, and forever shall be, the one thing we all need. Our conscience will eventually work on us and the "light will come on." Those who ignore this call will wind up un-forgiven. Unable even to forgive themselves for what may have seemed a big deal at the time the "grievous act" was committed.
Those who follow the "call" of our conscience and seeks out the other whom we have wronged, will experience within their heart and mind a release of calm and peace that surpasses all understanding.
You've forgiven yourself, and taken a step to heal a fractured relationship in the process. Whether he/she chooses to forgive you is up to them. You have to be prepared to live with the consequences of your previous actions.
If that means you will have to move on without that friendship you had, then you must do so with a clear conscience knowing you have done the right thing.
Jesus is our example of forgiveness. When He was hung upon that cross, He looked out into the crowd and in a loud voice said. "Father forgive them, for they know not what they do." I'd like the believe the centurion guard who said "truly this was the Son of God", received that forgiveness and released of the acts he committed against the person of Jesus. That spark of sensing your wrong acts, and accepting the forgiveness extended is key. Nay I say vital and he/she who learns the lesson of forgiveness once will be equipped anew with the conscience we are all given in the beginning of our lives.
Have I offended any of you with this blog? Forgive me, as I forgive those who respond in negative spiteful comments or reviews.

|You wake up and everyone in your family is gone. There's a post it on the kitchen counter. What does it say?
Oh the fun I'm, missing.
Near the natural elements.
Earning your keep is a drag.
Fishing for the salvation of our fellow man.
In the guiding influence of the Lord.
Seeking the one in whom the seed has been planted.
How will I ever do this?
"It's not you who will do it, but I who will draw them nigh.
Nearer to My throne draw and follow my leading.
Go into the highways and byways, for soon the harvest will be ready.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
He who believes in Him is not judged, he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 3:16-19.
Gone Fishing! Would you like to come along?

|Prompt: Write a bad poem.
Bad poetry day?
Ah, still like them anyway.
Dearly beloved, good or bad,
Poetry releases the soul.
Oh so many ways to go.
Etching the pages with wordy images.
Teasing the senses and emotional road signs.
Refreshing ones faith in humanity.
Yes even rhyming and un-rhyming lines make sense.
BAD POETRY? Could be. But from the heart of the author, there could well be a treasure or two left to find.

|You are on a long flight when you reach into the pocket of the seat, you discover a handwritten note that clearly was addressed to you, but how? And what does it say?
Rhonda obviously wrote it. She knows where I am all the time.
"Love you. Come home safely." To which I reply "yeppers"!
