HI! IT'S ME:

HI! IT'S ME:
I've been forced to take a break,
As there are problems that need attending.
What I thought was going to be a good week,
Has been anything else, this news I am sending.

I hope to return on Monday,
So in advance have a  Happy Weekend.
Those are wishes from the heart
I send to you my friends.

I shall be out most of the time
As various people I have to see.
So until Monday.
When again all of you I'll see.

WELCOME TO THE NEW WEEK:

WELCOME TO THE NEW WEEK:
 
After the uneventful weekend.
A new wonderful week has begun.
May all your problems be small ,
And many a happy song to be sung.
 
A week of new possibilities.
A week of laughter and cheer.
A week to be glad you were born.
So make the most of it whilst here.
 
The weather continues to be cold.
But spring is a day nearer I tell.
I hope all of you my blogging buddies,
Are happy and extremely well.

PURRFECT WEEKEND:

PURRFECT WEEKEND:
 
Well, the weekend is once again here.
Hope your is all you hope it to be.
Should the weather warm up considerably,
I hope to walk to the sea.
 
My new friend the stray cat.
Has been around a couple of times.
I purchased some cat food at the shops.
To ensure he will be doing fine.
 
Take time to try and relax this weekend.
Good for body and mind.
That by the time Monday returns.
All will be feeling fine.
 
HAPPY WEEKEND/

MARKET DAY HERE IN BOSCOMBE:

MARKET DAY HERE IN BOSCOMBE:
 
It's Thursday so it's market day,
Here in Boscombe Town.
It's been going for many a year,
In fact it's quite renown.
 
Although it's extremely cold,
I will go to get some fresh air.
To get out from my apartment for a while,
To forget problems and many cares.
 
I need a new umbrella,
As the past rain mine has given up.
Also I will go for a coffee,
Where cheerfully I will sup.
 
Usually it's the same people,
Who congregate week after week.
With their eyes on the bargains,
Also old and new friends they do seek.
 
Of course the holiday season,
One see many a new face.
I hope attending  Boscombe Market,
From their minds  won't be erased.
 
Have a wonderful Thursday buddies,
Here and across The Big Pond.
I look forward to your comments.
Of which over the years I've become so fond.

IWSG FEBRUARY 2018:

 IWSG FEBRUARY 2018:
Hello everyone hope February is good to all.
Thanks to Alex and all who help this group 
be so successful.
(A bit insecure this month.)

ALL I EVER WANTED:

There's so many things in life,
One may think they need.
But all I've every wanted these past few years,
Is the love of my family indeed.

Over the years feelings fester.
As this last weekend I've finally found out.
So I've stopped trying to "Build Bridges".
That's without a doubt.

I tried to contact my son in Spain.
At the time he was airborn.
So I attempted the proceedure later,
The result left me completely forlorn.

You see I rang his number.
He answered, I was confused.
He uttered just two words...Go Away"
In a language I never use.

I know not what I've done,
Why this attitude they've taken.
I've lost my kids and grandchildren.
Plus their futures in the making.

All the years of "Hope" I've endured.
Have gone up in smoke.
The "Happiness" of their younger days,
Memories they did evoke

But being the mother that I am,
With so much unconditional love  for sure.
Should they want me anytime.
Always open is my door.

MY MONDAY VISITOR:

MY MONDAY VISITOR:

Yesterday morning I proceeded downstairs,
To put my trash in the bin.
There on the doorstep sat a stray cat.
Waiting it appears to come in.

I deposited my trash,
Then returned to the cat.
Stroked it as it seemed all alone.
Thinking to myself that was that.

It purred so loudly on this frosty morn,
I then had an idea.
I went to my apartment and got some milk.
It lapped it up but remained there still.

I then got some cold  left over meat,
Which it eat so hungrily.
I picked it up to stroke it again.
It put it's paws around me.

This I tell you brought a tear to my eye,
The first sign of affection shown in some time.
Was I so alone in this big world of ours?
As I thought I was doing just fine.

I put the cat down after a while,
Then it went tenaciously on it's way.
I watched as it turned round the corner,
Thinking "Did We Make One Another's Day?"

WINTER TRAVELS ON:

A picure of my local beach:
WINTER TRAVELS ON:
 
As winter travels on,
There's a hint of spring I declare.
For I've noticed the sunrise a little earlier,
Likewise sunset a little later this I like to share.
 
How good it is not to
Have to put lights on at 3-30pm.
It made the nights seem oh so long.
Feeling like going to bed at 8pm.
 
It is a time to look forward,
To the onset of spring.
Although frost is on the ground.
There are also no birds on the wing.
 
But the fact the days are slightly longer.
Is a joy to behold.
That winter's journey is nearly over.
Looking forward to less cold.
 
Enjoy your new week.
Whatever it may bring.
Perhaps you are also.
Looking forward to spring.
