Wicked is, as wicked does.
Giggles verses cackles
give the witches wannbe’s away.
Wicked is as wicked does.

AKA “Witchipoo”… since 1976 ☺

Witchipoo’s the name,
Mother was my game.
I had”the look,”
that I’d think would scare
the bejeebees out
of my kids, grand kids.
Sigh.  It didn’t work.
Witchipoo’s the name
long ago lover thought
it be cute.
I only look scary to me,
I guess !

A gift many years ago from my mother…”Witchipoo” has real hair, that’s her claim to fame.

Screech ‘n holler
with all my might
tryin’ to cause a fright.

A tiny hand made journal ( necklace ) given to me by Peg White, a friend and fellow writer.

“You remember too much,
my mother said to me recently.
Why hold onto all that?’
And I said,
‘where can I put it down?”

Thoughts swirl
memories flow
looking for a place
to rest.
.
Thoughts swirl
memories flow
 Mom said,
“You just create clutter
with all your stuff.”
Stuff being artwork
 journals and books.
.
Thoughts beg to
be written,
a memoir for those
who don’t really know
me, but think they do.
.
Thoughts spoken
are chatter of an old
woman.
Thoughts written,
years from now,
may be a clue to
their present.
.
Thoughts creep in,Thoughts spoken
are chatter of an old
woman.
never minding
time of day,place,
what is happening.
Shower thoughts
hardest to record.
.
Thoughts spoken
are chatter of an old
woman.
Well, then, it’s okay.
The words may bring
relief to someone,
a laugh or clue
to another generation.
.
Thoughts swirl,
memories flow,
thoughts beg to
be written.
Thoughts spoken
are chatter of an old
woman.
Thoughts spoken

.

Dreams float over bed
dream catcher assures good dreams
stay secure, good luck
.
Dream catcher child made
speaks to spirits during night
reassuring sleep
.
Spirits live secure
nights weaving dream catcher home
sound sleep assured all

.

.
.

Day is done. All is well. All is forgiven.

.

Apology.  None.
She stops speaking, hangs up phone.
Sad state of affairs
.
Life’s mission: kindness
What if others disagree,
they take a stand ?   Sigh.
.
Forgiveness.  For whom?
Standing up for what is right ?
Forgiveness: Given.
.
I apologize to MoM
for …. what…standing up calmly
pleading daughter’s case ?
.
Forgiveness.  For Whom ?
Both stood on own principles
Silence not answered.
.
Apology.  None.
She not speak because I’m right
Sad state of affairs

My cat Bianca thought she knew how to open the front door … I was sitting across the room, camera at my side, took the photo, then laughed Her next “trick”, I couldn’t capture was trying to get into the blue shopping bag on the door knob ☺

.

Watching pet antics
warm the cockles of the soul
live longer with pets
.
Laughter helps long life
No laughter, short life seems long
Pets entertain, cheer
.
Like children, pets know
when spirits down, need lifting
watch, they entertain
