Thursday Things

Gray and white cat curled up on a glider. Behind him, a black and white throw from Eighth Generation. Beside him, a black and white pillowcase from Half Priced Books that has a falling stack of books (in black) and the words "It's not hoarding if it's books." on it.

Jotting down another
Unknown find
Saving it for payday.
Two or three more should be fine.


Or maybe wait and-
Never mind!
Every new story is a


Marvelous kind
Of journey and affordable
Relaxation. Time to
Escape into another staycation.

Wednesday Wonders

Mount St. Helens, years after its 1980 eruption on May 18thh.
A plume of smoke can be seen rising from the new dome from within.
Mount St. Helens Plume from Harry’s Ridge

Some weren’t born when St. Helens blew her top.

They learn from ‘old films’ and history books, or where their

Imaginations will stop.

Let’s remember the many

Lives changed, and the many lives lost.

Too Fun Tuesday

A gold coffee cup with the University of Washington purple "W" on it. A black notebook with the words "Poets & Writers" in white. A blue pen sits atop the notebook.
Writing Time

Perhaps it’s time to

Reclaim the Muse,

Once a

Selfish feline

Eventually releases the writing hand that I use

Monday Moments

The Columbia River as seen from the Amtrak train while traveling into Portland, Oregon
River from the Rails, Too 2013 by Tommia Wright

Another angle in slow

Motion, the time to

Travel, escape in the

Revolution of the wheels

And rails below, a soul heals

Way beyond the
Heavy clouds
Annoyingly
Taking away a


Memorable
Opportunity
Of an amazing lunar eclipse this
Night

Caturday

Two gray and white cats sitting in an arm chair staring off in two different directions.
Double Trouble 5.14.22 by Tommia Wright

Perhaps one should never

Assume that nothingness is

Worrisome when the felines

Stare at you and wait
