Eyes Wide Open – Week #26

Good Saturday morning! I hope you all had an enjoyable week. Here are some of my iPhone photos taken while I was out and about people and nature watching. It’s amazing what you see when you have your eyes wide open.

Enjoy your day!

This cool looking Chameleon was in the pet store
Pretty climbing roses still in full bloom
I saw this beautiful hawk and wished I had my Nikkon camera
with me! Oh well, another time
Oh how I love shopping at Trader Joe's for their sense of fun.
This little stuffed Manatee in a sailboat was on display above
the cold shelves
Now this guy was all alone just twirling his giant baton in the park.
I hope he had a good reason
The lone fisherman

One Liner Wednesday

Good morning! I do hope everyone is enjoying the holiday and did not let it stress you out too much. Just so you know you are not alone I’m sharing this One Liner with you.

Have a great day!

Eyes Wide Open – Week #24

Good Saturday morning!  I hope you have enjoyed your
week.  The weather was as little crazy here in Florida,
a little chilly for December, and a lot of rain too.  On Thursday
there was even a Tornado that swept through a community just
north of here. Yikes!

Anyway, here are some photos that I took on my iPhone when
the weather was favorable.  Hope you enjoy them.
Have a great day!
A beautiful Florida sunset was a lovely sight this week
This isn't a UFO!  It was a spider on her web clutching some kind
of crustacean that was bigger than she was!  It was just above

my head
An assortment of Ibis and Herons sitting on the mangroves
My dog Grace looking very interested in the wading Heron
Buddha contemplating among the Bamboo trees
This house has been empty for some time (someone's second home)
however, I can't help thinking those Buzzards that are usually
perched there, aren't exactly helping the realtor trying to sell it

Eyes Wide Open – Week #14

 

Good morning!

Here is another photo diary of my week. All photos taken on my iPhone. Maybe some of the photos will inspire your writing.

Have a great Saturday!

 

I ran into my new neighborhood friend George again!  He’s so cool

Pink Flamingos … it is Florida after all

Some mosaics on someone’s fence

This little Gecko jumped on the hood of my car when I left the

grocery store.  I drove slowly and he was still there when I got home.

He’s probably lost now!

Free Avocados!

Funny sight outside gun store. Do you think the angel is telling the child

not to buy one? The angel statue belongs to an antique store next door

Someone enjoying the weather on his jet-ski

Pressure

Pressure

The barometric pressure of the day
Is wreaking havoc in my mind
Confusion a familiar companion
On my journey of unpredictability

A feeling of hopelessness
Covering me in a dark shroud
Dragging me into its damp pit
of gloom and I go with docility

Clarity nowhere to be found
As I stumble on rocks of desperation
Blindly searching for reasons why
I am living a life of vulnerability

Spiraling downward out of control
Reaching for something to break my fall
Slipping and sliding all the way
Down into the declivity

My ascent from the chasm
Hindered by despondency
Hope cruelly mocking me
Wishing to drown exquisitely

In time the greyness of the sky pacifies
Pulling me slowly from the blackness
The accompanying wind pushing me up
So that I may breathe sanguinity

One Liner Wednesday

 

Good Morning!  It’s another One Liner Wednesday and this week the prompt is “What are you thankful for?” In times of political upheaval and divisiveness, I am thankful that I still have a sense of humor. It is needed.

This one is silly I know, but I can’t help myself.  It made me laugh!

 

In response to Linda G Hill’s One Liner Wednesday

Have a great Wednesday!

 

Freedom

Freedom
did not come easy
She fought hard
for what was truly hers
Stolen from her
with his lying words
feeding her ego
Promising a fantasy

She could not recall
When it happened
One day he had control
and he ruled her world
Her voice stolen
and thoughts buried deep
unable to share
This the beginning
of her downfall

Increasingly taciturn
she allowed him
to become her mouthpiece
She cooked and cleaned
and wore what he chose
Her once professional
appearance now quaint
She had become his slave
Reaching a point of no return

Inside her silent anger raged
What had she become?
A shadow of her former self
Until the day she found
her strength
and voice
Reaching out to those
Who could help
free her from the cage

Reflecting on her bondage
She pondered the cause
of her personal plight
Her heart had made the decision
Her brain, the excuses
Her head finally argued
and liberty became hers
Now she flies solo
Never again a hostage
