Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.

Poetry from My Purse - Finding the Miracle

Here's a poem that I found written in my purse. A while back, I had explained that I would post these from time to time. I did tweet the first few lines as Micropoetry on Twitter recently and I thought it would be nice to include the conclusion. What do you think?

As darkening waters existed over my world
I hoped to find the miracle that could bring me in from drowning
To treasure me, keep me safe
Even if only by listening to me
It unloads my hurt
opens my soul
makes me vulnerable
makes me love
I like the way that feels
Don’t leave my life
Don’t stop calling
No matter what you think
I may say
I’m here for you
The truth remains
through your presence
you brought me joy
and saved me from drowning.

In the Meantime...

I've been working on several articles, writing projects and a scrapbook project too. Also, I have a lot going on, as everyone does, in my real life that has had my time so my poor blog has taken a hit from my attention. I have several posts in mind but haven't put them up yet. I'll get to it, eventually. So, just to let you know I'm still around I thought I'd put up a few quotes from the movies my children have been watching lately.

Monsters vs. Aliens:

News reporter: Once again, a UFO has landed in America, the only country UFOs ever seem to land in.

Whatever mad scientist made you, he went all out.- Dr. Cockroach

This place is an X-file, wrapped in a cover up and deep fried as a conspiracy. There will be no contact with the outside and there never will. -General W.R. Monger

I don't want a poster, I want a real kitten, in a real tree. -Susan

Don't think of it as a prison, think of it as a hotel you never leave because it's been locked from the inside. -General W.R. Monger

The President of the United States: Somebody think of something, and think of it fast!

The Incredibles

A simple Thank You would suffice...

Helen: E, it's great to see you, but I gotta tell you, I've got no idea what you're talking about.
Edna: Yes, words are useless! Gobble-gobble-gobble-gobble-gobble! Too much of it, darling, too much! That is why I show you my work! That is why you are here!

Mr. Incredible: No matter how many times you save the world, it always manages to get back in jeopardy again. Sometimes I just want it to stay saved! You know, for a little bit? I feel like the maid; I just cleaned up this mess! Can we keep it clean for... for ten minutes!

Dash: That was the best vacation ever! I love our family.

Rick Dicker: We've frozen all of Syndrome's assets. If he even sneezes, we'll be there with a hanky and a pair of handcuffs.

Elastigirl: Settle down, are you kidding? I'm at the top of my game! I'm right up there with the big dogs! Girls, come on. Leave the saving of the world to the men? I don't think so.

Surf's Up

A winner is someone who doesn't knock me off my surfboard; Tank's definitely not a winner.

I hope the cameras are rolling because you're gonna want to watch it over and over.

My brother was the big egg, I was the little egg.

Lani, we're in the shower! Ask me whatever you want.
Cody Maverick

Dude, she's totally into you! She called you crap!
Chicken Joe

Tank needs fuel.
Tank Evans

You know, we've known each other way back since, like... yesterday, I think it was.
Chicken Joe

My reason behind this is because I love to hear the words written in the dialogue. It helps me giggle and dream about being on a writing team for one of these movies. Wouldn't it be fun to write a movie script? I imagine how fun that it would be to sit there with a group of fellow writers and banter out a script! Well, maybe it's not really like that, I don't really know, but I can dream. Plus, I'm starting to gain a small sense of that through Twitter. It's a rich source for the writing, music, Arts and poetic communities. I've met some wonderful minds through the thoughts that these people are sharing there. I enjoy following many people and there is just something about those 140 characters that I love! No more...it just fits with my creative mind, I think. Anyway, it's helped my writing a tremendous amount and I'm crazily writing every chance I get now. For that, "I'm eternally grateful."
Also, if you have a few moments, check out my articles here on Matchbox Twenty Plus to read what I've been doing in the meantime...apart from not keeping up with my blogging.

Don't worry though..."I'll be back!" :D
