Christmas-Claws

Howdy folks! 

The cat is this piece is our cat, Tinkerbell, who sadly we lost her November 11, 2011 at the ripe old age of 21 1/2 years old.

"Three Surprised Kris-mice"

"It's time to hang our stockings,
But quiet we must be.
If we tippy-toe lightly,
No one will ever see."

*Gasp* "Oh my gosh!
Santa is already here!
Santa is a feline!?
Trouble is very near!"

"Hang our stockings now,
Whatever are we to do?
If we are seen by Santa Claws,
We could be in Christmas Stew!"

"Kris-mouse Dinner"

"Mmmmm.. What's this I see?
Three tasty mice for me!
All are said to be blind,
But my belly won't mind!"

Tackling-Tasks

Howdy folks! 

I've always applied this to any large task or project, breaking one down into segments, and although it seems to be such a simple minded approach, it puts one in a frame of mind that lessens any dread one may have when faced with a large and daunting task, because instead of dwelling on the huge, whole task, one then focuses on just a part at a time and as each part is completed, one then starts to feel like they're accomplishing something, which in turn is encouraging to keep going until the whole task is completed.

Life’s so much about mountains we must climb,
Particularly those requiring huge chunks of time.
But if we focus only on the mountains, whole,
Impossible it seems then for us to reach our goal.

We can easily get discouraged dwelling on the whole,
Making the end result seem like such a distant goal.
But if we break a giant task into smaller parts or pieces,
We can then proceed to tackle it, as the dread decreases.

As we complete each part, confidence we build,
Knowing progress we’re making, not by dread, stilled.
As the completed parts, a larger piece, become,
We can know we're closing in on the total sum.

The more we accomplish towards our intended goal,
The more we are encouraged to complete the whole
And when upon, we are, that last and final stretch,
We know that giving up is not a choice for us to fetch.

The next time you are, with a giant task, faced,
Divide to make the whole, by parts, then replaced.
Focus on one part of your intended, final goal,
Then another and another, 'til finished is the whole.

Life is about mountains we must climb, overcome,
With lessons intertwined we are to learn from.
We can either face them with unproductive dread
Or tackle them, determined, surmounting them, instead.

💗 Have a blessed day! 💗

Skeleton-Crew

Howdy folks! 

I was late posting this last year on my Heartbeats blog, because it took me almost a month to complete and I also have/had other, more pressing priorities. Real life always takes precedence and being creative, as much as I love creating, is something I do as I can, when I don't have other things to do that need to be done. I'm just now deciding now to add it to this, my Rhymetyme blog, since I didn't last year.

While creating this piece, however, I began believing I wouldn't ever get it finished because I kept thinking of more elements to add. I love adding details and I feel it's well worth the extra time involved. The title I decided to go with does give new meaning to the term, 'skeleton crew', though. hehe

"Fright Night"
- with artwork, "Skeleton Crew"

At last the night is here,
The night of fright and fear;
The night of Halloween,
A ghastly, ghostly scene.

As witches make their brew,
Calling on the Skeleton Crew
To, from their slumber, rise
And meet without disguise.

The moon is full and bright
To make luminous the night,
As amber flames flicker in each lit Jack
And lick the brewing pot, burning it black.

With winter's breath coming, near,
On October's night, the last this year,
The chill to the bones, not in the least,
Matters to those who have deceased.

As spirits awaken, rattling their bones,
With a chorus of their moans and groans,
Rustling Autumn leaves blanketing the ground,
A symphony commences of an eerie sound.

Distant werewolves with blood curdling howling,
Are now on the hunt, have begun their prowling.
The owls are hooting, "Who-who-who who-whooooo,
Who dares to venture out this night through?"

As the graveyard comes alive with the walking dead,
Who've been sleeping restlessly in their earthly bed,
Waiting for the celebration, an annual eventful night,
When spirits mingle, old and new, a welcomed sight.

There are stories to be told, legends to be read,
Like Sleepy Hollow, the horseman with no head.
There's news of the living that must be spread,
Like who among the living is about to join the dead?

Ah, it is a Fright Night, one that spooks the mind;
One that's to the living, an event often quite unkind.
But to the spirit world, it's a night looked forward to,
The annual congregation of the Skeleton Crew.

💗 Have a blessed day! 💗
