Day 12 Prompt – Struggling?  by Teresa Smeigh 2019

I’m struggling

I cannot see why

people lie

people cheat

what is the purpose to harm

be kind to others

Day 11 Prompt – Macaroni Madness,

by Teresa Smeigh 2019

winter-3087060_1280

Macaroni madness happens once a year.

Lots of side dishes and plenty of beer.

I use my mother’s recipe

As no one else’s suits me. 

We party all day and plenty of dishes to try.

They announce the winners, I win this year, I cry!

March Roars In by Teresa Smeigh February 2019

gusty winds move through

flattening the deep grasses

still need a jacket

Day 10 Prompt –Billowy blobs and booby traps,

by Teresa Smeigh 2019

winter-3087060_1280

Billowy blobs and booby traps.

Piles of junk, bound for mishaps.

Clean that up my mom will always shout.

Other wise I will throw you out.

This is a home and not a barn.

I just tripped again, oh gosh darn.

Day 9 Prompt – Pixelated Paintings , by Teresa Smeigh 2019

winter-3087060_1280

blurred colors

hard to make them out

cannot see

wonder why

a pixelated painting

give me my glasses
