Life Passing By

By Tessa Dean November 2020

life is passing by

fast enough it’s hard to view

can’t smell the roses


The Guidelines:

Take the two words and write a Haiku. I use Haiku in English (the link shows you how) as my style, which is 5 syllables for the first line, 7 for the second, and 5 for the third, but you can use what you like.



The Challenge Words!

Katydids

by Tessa Dean August 2020

katydids are like

crickets, long-horned grasshoppers

their song can annoy

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #148

The Silhouette On The Shade

By Tessa Dean

Full moon glowing on my shade.

Funny silhouettes it sometimes made.

Was that a phantom I glimpsed in fright?

The moon’s glow disappears, reminding me it was night.

Spirits roam through my house.

Quiet as a church yard mouse.

Back to sleep I must go.

Too many distractions you know.

PROMPT #148

I am inspired by the following words, and offer the same as a writing prompt for this week.

  1. Silhouette
  2. Shade
  3. Phantom
  4. Spirit

No, you don’t have to use all four. You can use one or more of the given words in your piece – poetry or prose.

As usual, there is no restriction on length or format of the piece. interesting photographs are also welcome. Write a post on your blog, and copy-paste the link in Comments. In case you are using a pingback, do check back to see if it has worked.

Last, but not least, don’t forget to tag the post “Reena’s Exploration Challenge” for easy location in the blog roll.

Hospital Walls

Hospital Walls

By Tessa Dean copyright August 2020

To the hospital I am bound.

Fearful to know what may be found.

Doctor after doctor, test after test.

Trying to help me feel my best.

Answers I am seeking fail.

Making me long to bail.

The walls are closing in on me,

Dependent on someone else you see.

Hospitals are to make you well,

But they can be their own private hell.

Constant traffic in the room.

Someone always around to loom.

Let me out, it’s time to go.

No longer going with the flow.

Homeward bound finally.

They found nothing, I am free.

I spent 10 days in the hospital just before the Corona Virus hit and there is a good chance that is what I had. Timing from the CDC puts cases starting around January 15 and I was in the hospital 10 at the end of January. The symptoms fit.

Mourning

This is the bench that my dad got in loving memory of his wife, my mom.

Mourning

By Tessa Dean copyright August 2020

When my mother passed away my father was lost.

He lost his true soul mate at a great cost.

We all miss her dearly that’s true.

She has more mourners than a few.

Mourning a loved one never ends.

And sometimes there’s no time to make amends.

Life goes on as it must.

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.

Sunrise, My Day Ends

By Tessa Dean copyright August 2020

As the sun rises

I head to bed.

Trying to get comfortable

As I lay my head.

I usually sleep in short cat naps

Unless someone at my door raps.

The world goes on without me

And all I pray is let me be.

My sleep is riddled with nightmares.

I envy those that sleep without cares.

I wake up with a start

Holding my hand over my heart.

Heart pounding hard in fright,

I found day had turned into night.
