If you had to describe your day as a traffic sign, what would it be?

No U-turn! That would be my sign. No going back now! Keep going straight ahead as I am going in the right direction for what I want in life.

Is your hair short (total neck and ear showing), medium (covering ears and neck), long (below shoulders), extra long (at least halfway down your back) or bald?

My hair is long, below the shoulders. I don’t like myself with shorter hair, so I am going to be one of those old lady hippies, with the long silver hair. Ha-ha!

When you are with your friends, do your interactions include much touching—for example, hugging, kissing, rough housing, rubbing backs? Would you like to have more of this? (Note: the answers may vary depending on where you live on this wonderful planet.)

Depends on the type of friendship with me. If I really like someone I will hug them. No rubbing backs, kissing or the likes. I’ll reserve that for someone I love, not a friend, as I think that kind of over steps the bounds of friendship. And who wouldn’t want more love in the world? Maybe if we gave out more hugs, we wouldn’t be interested in fighting. Just an idea.

What do you feel is the most enjoyable way to spend $100? 

Well, my most enjoyable would be spending it in a book store. Ah, heaven. Or spending in on buying a gift for someone I love, just as a surprise, because I love giving surprise gifts for no reason.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I’m grateful for best friends, emails, and chats. I’m looking forward to warmer weather as I believe Spring has finally arrived in the Great White North. Maybe…...keeping fingers crossed.

NaPoWriMo Day 8 Poem ~~ Wolves

Hello people!

Hope your week is going great for each and every one of you.

Today I am doing a new form of poetry, well, it’s new to me anyway.  The things I’m learning in this monthly poetry challenge!

The type of poetry is called “lune form“.  The type I am doing was developed by Jack Collum. It’s a 3 line stanza. The first line has 3 words, the second has 5 words, the third has 3 words. It’s based on the Haiku. One can write a poem using just one stanza, or string a bunch of stanza’s together to make the poem.

What I have done is string a bunch of stanza’s to create my poem about wolves. Anyone that knows me well, knows I love wolves. They are such misunderstood and intelligent creatures.

I hope you enjoy my poem, and please leave comments! I love them!

My painting of a wolf

Wolves

Intelligent eyes shine
Endangered in many areas now
Unnecessary war fought

Trying to survive
In hostile man made environment
Is so unfair

Man could learn
From the ways of packs
Love, loyalty, care

Many different colors
Belonging to the same family
Acceptance is there

Each knows place
In the pack for efficiency
And for survival

They work together
In a tightly knit group
Wonderment to see

Howls sound out
Loud and eerie to humans
Talking between packs

Alpha male, female
Breeds to continue the lineage
Big happy family

Humans need humanity
When they deal with wolves
They aren’t enemies
