Island- Word Of The Day Challenge

Palmtrees sunset

Watercolor by Daphsam

Palm trees swaying in the sunset evening on the little island of Forget-me-not. The cool sand dances between my toes, as I walk towards the ocean. The ocean waves lull my heart into a peaceful beat.  On the island of Forget me not, I spend my days relaxing and watching the simplicity of the palm trees just be.

My thoughts of a busy, crazy life are not allowed here. The island is reminding me, to just be. Take the simplicity of ocean waves, sandy beaches, palm trees, colorful skies and soak it in. On the island, life is taken day by day, minute by minute.  Go to the island to quiet your mind. Let yourself get lost into the moment. Look down at your toes and see the sand covering your feet. You are here, in the now.

Don’t forget about the island of Forget-me-not.

RDP Thursday- Cake From Venice, Italy

Temptation Cake

Dear Chocolate Cake,

Oh, decadent chocolate cake. You are calling for me to take the first bite. With blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries to mingle with the richness and sweetness of the chocolate. My taste buds are watering.  Just looking at you puts me in a happy mood.  You take me back to a wonderful memory of a trip to Venice, Italy. I see the Venetian Lagoon beyond the plate and it brings me back to a time when travel was fun. There were no worries, no virus, nothing that threatened my well being.  My chocolate cake, thank you for your memories of wonderful vacation times.

Love,

Daphsam

Draw me into your colors of bright orange and yellow. Wash away my pain and stressful life.  Soak my negative thoughts away and leave me with positive ones.  Let the music of the ocean waves lull me into peace and drown out my racing heart.

Stream of Consciousness Writing: Beside You

What is beside me is my chair. Because of my back problems, sitting is not an option for very long. I work on my computer that is a standing desk (VersaTables). When I need to sit because standing all day is tiring, I have my chair right next to me to rest for about 20 minutes. If I go any longer, my back hurts.

So it’s a chair that is there for me when I need to rest.   I use to be able to stand all day but these days I am more tired:(  I do use a Coccyx pain relief pillow on top of the seat.

RDP Friday- Empty

Empty is the promise that is not kept.

Empty is the words that are spoken with little care to follow through.

Empty is what will be left after the fire you have set to everything.

Empty is what I will feel in my heart if you don’t change.

Iguana Hanging Out With Acrostic Poem

Acrostic Poem~ On My Own

In the depths of isolation.

Glued to the TV for the latest news.

Usually tired from my inactivity.

Annoyed that every day feels like the same.

No one said this will be easy.

Another day shut away from the world.

A Place To Meditate Watercolor & Pen Drawing

   A Place To Meditate

Aplacetomediate

Imagine what it would feel like to walk barefoot on these warm wooden planks. The earthy colors greeting your eyes creating an awareness of inner balance. From above the crystal blue sky shines brightly down on you. A warm tropical breeze brushes your skin like a feathery touch.

Your eyes drift down to the zen candles. You take a deep breath from within. Your senses are treated with warm sweet vanilla. The trickling water drops from the bamboo faucet lull you into a tranquil state. Lotus flower floating in the water leaving a trail of sparkles diamonds in its wake.

All is well. You are relaxed. You are safe in this place to meditate.
