Eugenia is the host of Eugi’s Weekly Prompt

“My life, I realize suddenly, is July. Childhood is June, and old age is August, but here it is, July, and my life, this year, is July inside of July.” – Rick Bass

Your Weekly Prompt Unforgotten – July 15, 2021.

➰➰➰➰➰


You will always be unforgotten

Your essence live in my DNA

You have passed from this world


Yet you live on in your children


I remember you in my moments of joy


Or when I am overwhelmed with trouble

The thoughts of you always lift my spirits

Your memory makes the best part of my childhood

I hope to emulate you in my principles and values

➰➰➰➰➰

A poem to honor my father who passed away almost 17 years ago.

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt- Network

Eugenia is the host of Eugi’s Weekly Prompt

 “Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability.” – Sam Keen

Your Weekly Prompt Network – July 8, 2021

♾♾♾

We all need our support network around us when we face difficult situations. Family and/or friends are so helpful with their support and advice. I, for one, cannot imagine being without my support network.

At times I turn to my family for support and advice and at other times, it’s my friends who provide comfort. This network is essential to maintain sanity and balanced views on life and overcoming the tricky challenges.

Without outside support, we can and do get overwhelmed, we lose our objectivity, and can make wrong decisions and choices. A person or group that has our best interest at heart can guide us through this maze of uncertainty. I rely on the advice of my support network because I know in a state of emotional distress, I can make mistakes.

Do you have a support network? Do you trust your family more with your problems or your friends?

Please share your thoughts in the comments section!

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt- Twilight

Eugenia is the host of Eugi’s Weekly Prompt

“Twilight drops her curtain down, and pins it with a star.” – Lucy Maud Montgomery

Your Weekly Prompt Twilight – July1, 2021.

♾♾♾

Here I am

In the twilight of my existence

The energy and vigor for life fading

The yesterday more powerful and vivid than today

Looking back brings me more joy and happiness

I remember what happened fifty years ago more than yesterday

Sitting in the slowly deepening shadows I contemplate

Think what is ahead and what has gone before

And oddly enough, I find my heart is content

With what I achieved or didn’t matter not

And I am ready for what comes next

♾♾♾

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Happiness

Eugenia is the host of Eugi’s Weekly Prompt

Ah, happy day, refuse to go!
Hang in the heavens forever so!
Forever in midafternoon,
Ah, happy day of happy June!

–Harriet Elizabeth Prescott Spofford (1835–1921)

Your Weekly Prompt Happiness – June 24, 2021.

♾♾♾

People are running after a phantom they call happiness

They find it’s just an illusion when they try to grab it

It evaporates like a pleasant dream does when we wake up

So where do we find this precious commodity

It lives deep in our hearts, waiting for us to discover ourselves

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Nature – June 10, 2021

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?

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Meadows – June 3, 2021

Your Weekly Prompt Meadows – June 3, 2021.

♾♾♾♾

Meadows of lush greenery and wildflowers

Remind us that there’s life beyond the concrete jungles

That nature exists outside of our busy, hectic lives

Once in a while step out of your demanding jobs and work

And take a breather, enjoy the nature

Recharge your batteries and be revitalized

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Mingle

Eugenia is the host of Eugi’s Causerie

Your Weekly Prompt Mingle – May 27, 2021.

♾♾♾♾

Let them mingle 
The colored and the colorless*
Let them share their life stories
And exchange views on their struggles

Let them find a common ground
And perhaps they will realize finally
That the color or absence of it
Makes no difference to who they are

Maybe there will be a point
When we all will realize
That color of our skin should not
Give or take away any privilege

Let them mingle, and then perhaps?

♾♾♾♾

( * I have used the term colorless deliberately because it seems strange to me that someone who is brown or black is referred to as “people of color”, while the Caucasian races are referred to as “White” …… Why? I think we all are different shades of brown!)

Eugi’s Causerie- Weekly Prompt – Magic

Eugenia is the host of Eugi’s Causerie

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Magic – May 21, 2021.

Kindness is that magic that can change the world
Be kind because that’s the least you can do
Every single word, gesture, and action matters
When the motive behind is just kindness and nothing else
