RDP Tuesday: History
I tried to be prettier
I tried to find a style
so that I could look snazzy, edgy and cool.
But of course I was not
pretty, stylish, edgy snazzy or cool.
I was just me.
Once I asked my Grandma to buy me some makeup for my 14 birthday
and she looked at me and said,
” You have a nice personality.”
Of course I am sure you have guessed
I do no have a nice personality
Fandango’s One-Word Challenge: TAKEN
‘Untitled‘ by Mariko Klug
Under a dark sky
wrapped in a blanket of shadows
and warm soft earth
is a someone’s secret.
The Secret has a name.
He was 24 years old.
He will always be 24 years old.
Marty is missed by a dog name Fin.
Fin still waits for him at the end of the drive
where they used to live
before Marty was taken, eight months ago.
Fin thinks Marty will come back one day.
I think Fin is right.
Ghosts may wander aimlessly
but the taken always find their way back,
even when their eyes have been cruelly and without mercy closed.
Paula Light’s challenge: , “Let’s celebrate the month of lurve (aka love) by posting one thing we love every day throughout February.
Sometimes you read something, like a poem or you hear a song and you say- wow that really is about true love.
Sometimes though, these tributes show up in unexpected places.
Even if you don’t know anything about ancient Egypt or Pharaohs and their wives, it’s easy enough to see how much this Pharaohs loved his wife.
It wasn’t expressed through the carvings and monuments you see here.
It’s what he had written about his love for her:
“A temple of great and Mighty monuments, for the Great Royal Wife Nefertari Meryetmut, for whose sake the (very) sun does shine, given life and beloved”
For whose sake, the Sun does shine.
