Rhyme Royal

28 Feb

I’m horribly late joining G-Man’s Friday Flash 55 fun and Fireblossom has given us the challenge to write a Rhyme Royal for today’s challenge at Real Toads.  I’m combining the two challenges.

Lying in bits and pieces of glitter and fairy dust
I view all the shattered sections of my life
seeing my youthful mind beginning to rust
thoughts of trouble, pain and loss run rife.
Enough of this darkness and unpleasant strife!

I vow to celebrate life each new day
with love, music and magical play!

    Play is what saves us Teresa–that and loving and caring for all the living things that bring us peace. Couldn’t agree with you more here.

    That’s a plan I can get behind. Much better than sitting here looking out the window at the blizzard all day.

    Out with the old…In with the Party!
    Teresa, You can’t make me EVER believe that anything
    in your brilliantly busy mind has the time to rust.
    Loved your introspective 55
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

    A wonderfully poetic pep talk: Admit the broken neverland and enjoy life anyway.

    Amen to that attitude! Well done with the form, too.

    Rusting happens, whether we want it to or not; never easy to accept…
