Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Nature – June 10, 2021.
Surrounded by nature
Protected by nature
Beguiled by nature
Nourished by nature
We betray the nature
Stab it in the back
After all the kindness it has bestowed on us
A treacherous payback we offer
When it grows angry with us
Punishes us for the betrayal
We cry out and curse loudly
But still, we do not learn our lesson
Why do we insist on cutting the umbilical cord that sustains us?
Linda is the host of JusJoJan and Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday
Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “sky’s the limit.” Write about something that has or seems to have no end. Enjoy!
There seems to be no end to his ambitions
The sky is the limit he would often say
All his zeal and enthusiasm are directed
Toward not his own glory but to that of his baby
His baby is not his child but his brainchild
A most beloved project which consumes all his energy
I salute his devotion, his commitment to this cause
An organization that gives interest-free loans
To the poor, down-on-their-luck- people, without collateral
And the surprising thing is that most people give back
Not only what they borrow but also become donors too
That one act of kindness begets thousands more
(This poem is about an organization created and run by very good family friends and does an amazing job)
This week Michael has given us this prompt for Sunday writing
Sunday Writing Prompt – Getting On with It – January 3rd
We’ve moved from 2020 to 2021.
This week write your response to “Getting on with it”. What might you be getting on with?
Life is busy and hard at times. Yet I’ve noticed that we often stick to doing things that are either unnecessary or redundant.
This year, let’s get on with it.
Do things your way, a new way. Let go of old customs, habits, and ideas and seek something new. It’s not necessary to do things in a pattern that you’ve been doing for long.
Be bolder, be decisive, and create change.
This is a new day and it gives us a new opportunity to try something different. Or do the same thing in a different way.
That is my 10 cents worth of advice for you this year;
Try something new
Change how you think
Grab the moment
And let it not be said
That we are shy of change
