REALITY CHECK




It's Quadrille Monday at dVerse and Mish
has given us "drizzle" for our word to
be used in our quadrille of exactly 44 words.

When I was young and sparkly
I had a lot of sizzle
Now that I’ve grown older
My sizzle is a fizzle

I start my day all perky
My expectations are great
But drizzles seem to beset me
And my perk seems to abate.

  3. As our bodies begin to betray us, we must keep mentally alert with writing poetry & all other mental pursuits we can muster. Photography serves me well too--that and Trivia challenges.

    1. I so agree, Glen. I co-administer 3 art challenge blogs in addition to my poetry blog, belong to a small writers' group, a small art group, and keep half a dozen on-line scrabble games going with family and friends. Our philosophies are much the same.
