I know people view dandelions as annoying weeds, but I like them. I especially like the defiance of this dandelion how it is growing right up through the patch of these blue flowers. It's not afraid to stand out in the crowd.

I am particpating in the Barathon with the blogging group, Blog a Rhythm for the week of June 14 to 30th, a fortnight of blogging as they say in India. I almost forgot that a fortnight means two weeks. Such a fun British term.
Today's prompt is "The Fault in our Stares." The theme for the week is "Seven" which I have no idea how to incorporate into today's post, other than this memory took place in the 19 SEVENties. There, I did it! PHEW!
This is a memory I have of volunteering as a candy striper in a hospital when I was about thirteen. A loud garbled
cry comes from the small shrunken man in the hospital bed. He drools from the
side of his sagging mouth, his red tinged eyes pleading, as he tries to get my
attention. I have just
started working as a candy striper and Monsieur Couvrette scares me with his
pitiful cries and pathetic look. Most of the time, I try to avoid him as he
seems so angry. He lies in
the bed, sad, helpless, shriveled and shrunken, his skin…
I am participating in the BarAThon with the blogging group, Blog a Rhythm for the weeks of June 14 to 30th. Today's prompt is "War and Pieces." I did a poem for today's challenge. War and Pieces Pieces of shrapnel, pieces of bone Pieces of metal, pieces of stone, Fly-covered corpses, their blood
brownish-red Survivors wish that they, too, were
dead. War hungry maniacs with evil goals Destroying lives and shattering souls, Power hungry men, they always want
more Making life harder for the sick and
the poor, Everywhere, despair increases Such is the life, with war and pieces

Today's prompt is "The Call of the Wind." I got my inspiration thinking about walking along Point Michaud on the Atlantic, located on the East coast of Canada in Cape Breton, a place I love very much. The Call of the Wind The call of the wind is beckoning me It reaches out from the angry sea, With a darkening sky and clouds so low The wind is calling and I must go, I stand so still and let the wind blow I should go back but my feet won’t go, Wind rips at my hair and stings my eyes The wind squeals and shrieks, with
pitiful cries, I stand on the beach and look at the ocean Watching the waves with their steady
motion, Wave after wave crashes on the shore I watch them recede on the sandy floor, Salt spray crusts my face and hair I’m totally drenc…
