Reblog: Scar

Good evening, LifeLessons readers, OkcForgottenMan still here. Judy is winding down the last day of her writers retreat, and I’m here winding up reblogging some of her older poems. It’s been a fun gig for me as I have strolled back through her blog archive, wondering which to select. I’ll look forward to doing so again, when Judy feels the urge to wander.

My final pick today (and for this go-around?) is a shape poem from May, 2016. Let’s see how you like it. I do. It’s called “Scar“.

Reblog: Earned Solitude

Good evening, LifeLessons readers, OkcForgottenMan here yet again. Judy continues toiling in the final day her writers retreat in Colima, and I’m still here reblogging some of her older poems. It’s a fun gig for me as I stroll back through her blog archive, wondering which to select. I’ve done this before, and I’m looking at her posts from 2016 this go-around.

My second selection today (one more later? maybe.) is something a little different. It’s based on a NaPoWriMo prompt to write a poem to be told backwards! I think Judy did quite well. What do y’all think? The poem is titled “Earned Solitude“.

Reblog: Jake

Good afternoon, LifeLessons readers, OkcForgottenMan here again. Judy is in the seventh – and final – day of her writers retreat, and I’m still here reblogging some of her older poems. It’s a fun gig for me as I stroll back through her blog archive, wondering which to select. I’ve done this before, and I’m looking at her posts from 2016 this go-around.

My first selection today (I hope to post more) is “Jake“, wherein she takes words rhyming with “Jake” to a whole new level. I hope y’all enjoy as much as I did when I first read it, and when I did again, just now.

These trees have been blooming all along the route from Ajijic to Colima. This one was photographed on the road between Comala and Colima.

Reblog: The Gawkey and Flaybottomist…

Good evening/night, LifeLessons readers, OkcForgottenMan still here. Judy continues toiling in her writers retreat, and I’m still here reblogging some of her older poems. It’s a fun gig for me as I stroll back through her blog archive, wondering which to select. I’ve done this before, and I’m looking at her posts from 2016 this go-around.

My final pick for today is a fun read (well, to me). It’s a response Judy wrote to a NaPoWriMo prompt. Just the title and accompanying photo should be enough to give you a smile and a reason to click on it. The title? The Gawkey and Flaybottomist—Who Should Have Stopped When First They KissedHave I got you hooked yet? Bet I do!
