You Mousy Little Thing!

Rag Tag Prompt: SHY

You speak so softly,

people  say to me

you must be shy!


You need to smile more,

it would make you look pretty

but I get it, they would laugh, you are shy.


When was the last time ( I was asked )

you just let loose

it’s too bad you don’t, wow, you must be really  shy.


I wish I had the nerve to say

when I am asked to smile and bark and sit up on cue

I’m not shy

I just don’t like you.




I Probably Should Not Write About Love

Word of the Day Challenge: Beloved

He told me

he settled for me.

He told me

he deserved more, she deserved better

they deserved each other.


I may not have been the beloved

but I am very happy to  Bedevil

freely, joyously,  every single day

wherever I can and to whoever I can.


It  really is a blessing

when the road rises up to meet you

and the sun is shining

the birds are screeching

and the wolves are howling merrily out loud.
