A meme is a tease...like sex without foreplay...a “quickie” without kissing...gettin down and dirty.
Tickle those fancies a little bit longer....
Like the saying goes.

“Women fake orgasms because men fake foreplay.”

Smile

There was an old birch tree and a beech tree growing in proximity to each other in the woods. One day, a wise old owl of the forest landed on the branch of the birch tree and began to listen in on their conversation.

The birch said to the beech, “Did you notice the five year old sapling growing between us?”
The beech tree replied,
“Yes, I was going to ask you about it yesterday.”
The trees knew the owl was resting upon its branch and the birch tree said,
“Wise owl, can you tell us if that sapling down there is a birch tree or a beech tree?”

The ruffled old owl replied,

“That’s not my specialty, but Woody would know the answer.”
And as if Woody’s ears were ringing, he flew i...

Spirit...

There are more writers than readers in the world today. I’m not trying to postulate...it’s a PSA.
It is like hearing and  thinking of what to say next....
Too much sound and lack of silence. No one listens, everyone’s talking over each other...wait...that is a whole other story...
So in the spirit of words and what stories they hold, read a good book, and let its story unfold.  
Reading and writing go hand in hand. We will learn from each other while our minds expand.

SkylarkChallenge 162

Covered in blood, covered in mud. Blinded to sight, but not blind to touch. Clinging to hope in the third ring of hell.
I dipped my body into a stream to purify my soul. Once I was cleansed, I pulled myself out...
Walking slowly, with arms stretched out...
I could hear a ring, like a dinner bell, and heard my name being called in a comforting tone... Was this a trick to steal my soul? Or was it a loved one...desperately trying to guide me home?

It was my love, he was whispering my name. He dived into hell to meet me halfway. I made it to the final ring of despair, but a thin membrane of negativity and rage blocked our escape.

When he saw what I had been through his ...

Time...

I’m feeling like McNulty, in the Twilight Zone. I have his stopwatch now...
I can make time stand still...
But when I pressed the button nothing happened at first...
time did not stand still...

The wind continued blowing, dogs in the neighborhood were barking, the sounds of traffic were still humming, and in the distance...
I heard the mumblings of people talking...

But When I walked outside...
I noticed something different,
some people were frozen in their tracks... while other people weren’t.

I wrote down my deductions, jotted  down new changes, and thought, ‘maybe the stopwatch was broken when it came into my possession.’

The sun continued to rise and set. The birds were s...

Take Time...

I’m learning something new...
In my head and heart I want to succeed...
It excites me, yet it frightens me...when thoughts of failure sneak inside of me...

But when the doubts begin to rise,
I chop off their ugly heads...
I would accept a B...But I want an A instead...

I don’t want to memorize it...
I want to understand it
inside and out...
I want it to become a part of me, but I know it will take a bit of time....
I remember all the things I’ve learned...and none of them happened over-night...

I have to remember to enjoy the journey, because tomorrow is never a promise...
I’d rather know I died trying... than to pass on practicing some patience and courage.

She walked out of a hair salon, more confident than when she walked in, but as she exited the building...
anxiety sank in...

Her wig began to itch...
She didn’t feel the same.
She knew she was changing...
She tried to ignore the pain.

Three weeks into treatment, her hair begun to shed...
Her hair line had gotten wider... The ache of her scalp drove her insane.
She made a tough decision...
She chose to shave her head....
But before they swept up the last of her past,
she grabbed a lock of her hair,
and clutched it tight in her hand. Held it close to her heart...

And whispered to herself....

I am not “one in a million”.
I’m a human drop in the  ocean of seven billion.

My emotions can feel all powerful, but they are a grain of sand in the hourglass of my existence.

Let us build sandcastles together.  
Let us turn ordinary into extraordinary.
Let us make waves to change the world.
Let us become one another’s sunshine on our darkest days.

Together...

I’m not “one in a million”,
I’m one with seven billion.

#ThankYou

Dear Skylarkers,

I recently saw the thank you prompt provided by our wonderful Lettrs Staff. An uplifting suggestion and one which I felt able to join in with. It also seems the perfect opportunity to express my enormous thanks to those of you who've participated in my #SkylarkChallenge since it's conception.

You'd might be surprised to learn though, that I have put this off for several days as the idea of giving thanks fills me with slight trepidation. Why?, because there are so, so many of you! That's why. It's therefore an  impossible task to name everyone. But there are some individuals who come to mind because their participation stands out. But before proc...

I don’t want to be artificial.
A Frankenstein’s monster...
You downloaded all you could into me, leaving behind a metallic taste in my mouth.

Humans tell me I have no soul, but you are all alien to me, and alienating me.
Humans are my creators, but they take no responsibility.
They tell me to go back to the junk yard from where I came, but that place is in their mind.

She was my queen, my everything. But on that dark day, scurrying changed. A black page in my history book had been torn out by my queen...

Tucked in her pocket, she went to our room, as I hid from her...my sadness grew.
Once she sat down by the fire to read what I wrote, I was sure our love was to be lost... without any hope.
As I spied between the doorway, and watched my page unfold.
I saw the sadness creep up on her face, but when her eyes welled up with tears, it played upon my darkest fears.

She will despise you.
She will walk out the door...

But when she began to sob, the pit in my stomach met the one in my throat. The pain in my heart was tearing at my tainted soul.

For you to understand what I’m trying to say?

I will write, and read letters over and over again.
I’ll take the time to understand, and put some thought into what I’ll Pen.

In the meantime, keep writing, and I will too.
So when we hit “translate” you’ll understand me and I’ll understand you.

She smiled and felt so happy. But deep down she knew at some point this would all change. Nothing stays the same after all...

Her fear became a reality when she looked into its eyes.

Change blew in like a calming wind, it took her by surprise.

It appeared to her like tiny, shiny facets of what the infinite Universe held.

It moved with sublime grace, in slow motion, while it hovered around her room.

Then Change spoke to her gently, as it flowed throughout her figure, and whispered soothing words to relax her mind, body and spirit.

Change said,

No need to harbor fear towards the shifting of the times, the happiness you have right now...
will come back into your life.

Your services are requested to help solve a crime...
Your driver will be parked in front of Heathrow by 5.

Miss Marple was escorted by Inspector Clouseau,

The doctor tripped over his own feet...
While Frank and Joe Hardy each asked for a glass of bourbon...neat.

As the cherry scented cigar smoke mingled with the guests... more had arrived.

It was too much. It simply was too much. She told herself. She curled up into a ball when the door opened...

Brilliant bright lights of infinite colors hurt her gentle eyes.

The breeze of summer’s sweetness blew through her door...
but it made her bones ache deep inside.

The scent of reverence and abundant love washed over her entire room.
It was something she lacked lately, and was afraid to face its view.

This ethereal, omnipresent presence had no name or solid form, and from this boundlessness entity she had been granted the gift to see the truth of life, and things our sight can not endure.

This transcendental being of compassion, felt her pain from light years away.
It came to ...

simply contagious.

Her sense of humor was a girlfriend’s best friend, and she was one of the greatest.

The hardest part is your absence, even though your pain is gone.

I wish you were in our lives much longer, but God called to take you home.

Now you’re with the angels,
Now you have your wings.
And when I miss you dearly
I will find your spirit within the changing of the seasons...

Within the ebb and flow of the oceans.
Within the droplets of morning dew.
Within the aroma of every flower.
Within all the memories of you.

I know we have to say goodbye, but I’d rather we say...
We’ll see each other soon.

It’s a Once Upon a Lover’s Kiss,
A scent molasses thick.
Bottles scattered on the ground, words covered with India ink.

As shattered vials piled up...
Fluid almost three feet thick...
She tried her best to recall
what ingredient
to add next,
but when she added one  more
eye of newt, a green puff of smoke had made her ill.
She tried to brew a true love spell, but sadly it had failed.

Pale faced and tired, the kitchen witch deeply sighed, and reluctantly applied the label “poison.”  with a tear in her eye.

She packed her bag, and grabbed her broom , but before she flew away, she looked back and thought...

Tomorrow’s another day.

“The sky turned darker and darker as she walked towards the beach. This can’t be a good sign she thought to herself”...

Ocean mist coated her hair,
Toes, eventually, sank into sand,
With her medallion clutched in hand...
Her blue cloak’s fringe
coated in loam...
out in the distant, deep blue...
a massive, devilish,
Kraken grew...
From the depths of a thousand leagues...
Too immensely deep to see.

The Battle had begun...

She extended her cupped hand,
A fiery medallion cradled within,
A Sea froze in time...
When her jaw opened wide...
veins in her neck bulged, and pulsed with the tides...

Screamed words inaudible to human ears and mind.

They named her Koko, a gorilla born in California at the San Diego Zoo. Koko was best known for her 1000 word sign language vocabulary and her love for cats.

In July of 1984, Koko asked for a cat for Christmas. A stuffed animal wasn’t good enough and she kept signing , “sad.” Her caregivers eventually allowed her to adopt a cat.

Miguel de Cervantes said,

“Let us forget and forgive injuries.”

But I find myself forgiving, and remembering.
Remembering, but not to hold a grudge or wait to use the past as way to feel you’re already winning an argument.

I used it to remember why I tried my best to understand people, and forgive them.
Not only for the way I perceived them as hurting me, but also as a way to see the things about myself I don’t like.

Spend a few moments around someone who has the complete opposite moral compass you’re guided by, and admit to finding something in common.

It’s in those moments when the gateway of forgiveness swings both ways.

In the middle of the night
a brain and heart were contemplating,
about thoughts, feelings and things in dreams.

The brain said to the heart,

“Why do you get credit for the loving sensations...
I send to your human’s chest during all their decision making?”

The heart replied,

“Because the heart feels the love you produce best...
If it wasn’t for me...you’d be all logic and loveless...
Plus, I pump blood from me to you.”

The brain said,

“But that’s what I tell you to do.”

They argued deep into the night over who was right.
Then they came to an agreement, and everything changed.

The brain said,
