Faulty System

Image
Pardon my feelings  They often cloud my judgment.  I have a weakness  For doing and saying what I feel, Instead of what I know is right.  It's a faulty system that works within me.  Written by Evelyn Creon 

Is This Our Ideal Life?

Image
Everywhere we look We see people wearing masks.  Walking down the street  We try avoiding everyone's path.  We can't look anyone in the eye  And act like everything's alright.  We all live in fear,  Like we're about to die.  We're all freaking out  About everything we hear.  Shouting our doubts  In everyone's ears.  Trying to scare people  Into fearing what we fear. Is this sad sight  how we should live our lives?  Hiding in the shadows  Afraid to be happy or to thrive.  Is it good for our health  when we are drowning in fear: Stuck in depression, Sadness, and despair?  We can't even smile  to the people we pass.  They won't see it  through our stifling mask.  Is this our ideal life, and if it's not then what is?  Written by Evelyn Creon       What is your ideal life? I ask this question in today's poem, because the life that I am living right now is not my ideal life by any means. My ideal life is walking down the street and being able to smile

Question Time #7

Summer is almost over, shocking right? This year has brought many challenges with every new month, but that's okay, because sometimes we need to spice up our boring lives. SO let's go into the month of August looking on the bright side of life, and learn from the challenges that it will throw at us.  With that being said, I asked my Instagram followers to send me questions to answer for today, so let us get into those questions.  Have you ever been afraid of death?  From a young age my parents taught me not to be afraid of death.  What is one of your favorite sayings?  Failure is not failure unless you give up.  What was your favorite book series as a kid?  I have four favorites: Boxcar Children, Little House books, Moody series, and Viking Quest series.  What was the last book you read?  Green Glass Sea  You all should look into it, I loved the story.  What would you like to improve or change about yourself?  I wouldn't change anything, but I would improve my temper and my

Kekionga Pathway Adventure

I've been visiting family in Decatur Indiana for the past week. This morning I enjoyed a peaceful walk by the river. I thought I'd share some of the photos. 

The Sledding Hill

Image
The hill was steep, The snow was light, Mud and sticks, Oh, what a sight.  "Let's try to sled!" We all said.  The first to try  The deathly ramp  Was our cousin Matt, Who lived with us.  He flew down the hill  With nothing to lose. So, we soon followed  In pursuit.  At top speed  We sped, oh, the thrill Of racing hearts, And winter's chill. Over and over again  We flew down that  Deadly track.  Then it happened,  Our cousin went sailing  Off his sled into the air.  We screamed in pain, "Are you okay?"  As we watched him land  On a pile of logs. He rolled off the pile Into a ball.  Down we ran As fast as we could.  "I'll be fine!"  He managed to grunt.  Mom was told the story, And banded the hill for life.  Written by Evelyn Creon 

Question Time #6

It's the last tuesday of the month and you all know what that means. Today we are going for some fun and silly questions.  Is a hot dog a sandwich?  To be honest I have never really thought about it. My on the spot answer is NO, it's in a category all by itself.  What is something everybody looks stupid doing?  Zerburts, your face gets all weird looking when you do one, and the babys love them.  What are the unwritten rules where you work?  Yell corner before going around the blind corner  Stupidest wifi password you've heard or seen? 765432112345677654321 Best type of cheese?  Gouda   Best nicknames you have for fellow employees or customers?  Eleven, serwina, boss captain Thomas,  If animals could talk which one would be the rudest?  Wolverine 

Who are You?

Image
Who are you? I do not know.  YOU are a stranger tall and old. I've met you once or twice before, Maybe even thrice.  YOU seem so sweet and so nice, But  people aren't always what they seem, And that's why I question now.  Should I let my guard down  And let you see me for me?  Written by Evelyn Creon   

Closet Monster

Image
Inside that closet that you see  Lies a creature strong and free It loves to scare the little children  Hear their cries of misery.  It’s never seen by any parents  It only shows itself to children,  When the room is dark and grim It emerges from the closet  With a nasty, and evil grin.  Written by Evelyn Creon 

Benefits of Dancing

Image
          Dancing has been a part of cultures since the beginning of time. It has mesmerized the hearts and minds of people around the world with its different styles, history, and health benefits. Dancing is an art of expression; it has been used to express deep ideas about things such as  war, sexuality, happiness, grief, and many others. It can take a person on a roller coaster ride of imagination, challenging people to improve both physically and mentally.  Dancing stimulates the brain. It improves motor skills and communication between the left and right hemispheres of the brain. Because dance makes people more social and interactive with people outside their normal social circles, it also installs an energetic self-confidence in them. When a person dances freely , the body releases neurotransmitters called endorphins. These endorphins make a dancer feel happy, which alleviates stress. Remarkably, Stanford Dance noted, “ Dancing integrates several brain functions at once

Question Time #5

I can't believe that this is the last Tuesday in May. We are almost halfway though the year of 2020, and oh man it has been crazy ride.  Lets get into the questions for this month.  Which of the seven wonders of the world do you want to vist the most?  Because there are many different types of seven wonders of the  world I decided to choose one of each.   Ancient seven wonders:  Hanging Gardens of Babylan Modern seven wonders: Coloseum Natural seven wonders: Victoria Falls  Medieval seven wonders: Hagia Sophia  When was the last time you really laughed outloud?  Last night. One of my coworks did something really stupid and funny.  What was the most memorable book you have ever read?  I have two: one is a Indian Captive by Marie Jemison, and the other is a Viking Quest series by Lois Walfrid Johnson.  What major historical event took place the year you were born?  The bombing of the Twin Towers.  Do you have any skeletons in your closet?  Of course! Everyone has them, because nobody

Monstrous place

Image
High above the misty mountains  Beneath the creeping, looming sounds. Hideous monsters prowl around, In a grim, gruesome battleground. A lethal monstrous place to roam For any human that I know.  You'd never make it out alive Unless you know the Shiverouse tribe. The Shiverouse you can not trust; Bury you while you still converse, And if you become their ally Yes, even then, you still might die.  If you did make it through alive  You'd wonder quite how you survived. The Shiverouse tribe has wiped you brain, So that others you might not train.  This place will haunt you all your life, Bringing nightmares each day and night.  No one that lives is e're the same Once they've stepped foot in that dreadful place.  By Evelyn Creon

Sullen Face

Image
Happiness surrounds me  Every time I see you.  Don't let my sullen face  Fool you.  I just put it on, So it doesn't look like  I'm falling for you.  Written by Evelyn Creon 

Broken and Defeated

Image
At some point we have met or will meet a person that is broken and does not believe they are capable of being loved. Because they are in that mindset it is all the more important to show them what love is and what kindness is. The last thing we want to see is the sadness that is in my poem, "Broken and Defeated." Remember  A little bit of love can go along way.  She once hid in smoke that stung her eyes, As she fought for herself and agonized As she fought for herself and agonized. What did she do to deserve such a wreck, Her heart was torn and so was her check. Her heart was torn and so was her check. She floated on a glasses of iced champagne, Stuck in a tizzy of weakness and shame. Stuck in a tizzy of weakness and shame. She tried to amend the things she had done; Turn her life towards the rising sun Turn her life towards the rising sun. Alas, the deed she never completed, So she hid in the dark broken and defeated. So she hid in the dark broken and

Question Time #4

Another month is almost over. April seemed to fly straight by and not event say hi. How long have you been writing?  Almost ten years.  What advice would you give a new writer, someone starting out?   Don't worry how terrible the first draft looks, just put your thoughts in paper.  What do you like to do when you're not writing? Enjoy the outdoors and go to work.  If you could only have one season, what would it be?   SPRING, it is my favorite out of all the seasons.  What did you do for Valentine's day? Is Valentine's day a day to celebrate?   I worked all day. My family has never celebrated it before, so I don't really see the point in celebrating it.  Would you rather have an endless summer or endless winter?    Neither, I'm not a big fan of either.  Would you rather live in a haunted mansion or an un-haunted cottage? An un-haunted cottage is more appealing to me.  Shower or bath?

As Flawed As I

Image
She was afraid  to expose herself, And the shame she faced.   Even though I declared   My unconditional love for her. She clung to the fear That she was inadequate To be loved. At least not with the conflict with which she struggled.  I patiently  waited for her to express Her deepest regret, every day. Once she let me in, I realized that This woman I fell for  was just as flawed as I. Written by Evelyn Creon

a Dream a Whisper

A dream, A whisper, The sound of hello, A sticky note saying, "I told you so," An outstretched hand With a sun kissed tan, And blue flowers on A yellow headband. written by Evelyn Creon 

Whispering Moon

I want to sleep, But the moon has different plans.  It's outside my window whispering,  "Stay awake and dream.  There is still so much for you to do." Written By Evelyn Creon

Question Time #3

As another month comes to a close I am thankful for all the joy, pain, and sadness it has brought me.  March is going to seem so far away tomorrow with all the turmoil going around. So, let us end this month on a positive questioner post.  What's in your fridge right now?  Mayo, mustard, gouda, coconut milk, tapatio, spinach, mixed greens, onions, kumbucha, seltzer, broccoli, cilantro, spaghetti sauce, lunch meat, salsa, sour cream, cottage cheese, oat milk yogurt, molasses, maple syrup, etc....  What part of your body could use a little lotion?  My hands are a little dry.  What's the wildest thing you have done in a hotel?   It depends on what is considered wild. Sneaking all of my family, (twelve people, most of which were younger than 10) into one big room.  Would rather be able to breath or have the agility of a cat?  The agility of a cat. I'm a heavy walker, and it bugs me when I'm trying to walk quietly.  Have you ever cried

World of Turmoil

Image
This world is full of turmoil Everywhere I look. I want to see a smile, Not this wild fire. It's eating at our joy, Making us depressed, I want to get away from this horrible mess. Written by Evelyn Creon 

Blushing Smile

Image
Thump, thump, thump, I felt my heart  Every time you pass.  I yearn to say, "Hello,"  But courage I don't have.  SO every time you pass  I blush and turn away,  Afraid you might see My crimson smile painted on my face.  Written by Evelyn Creon

Morning Routine

Image
I want to hide among my covers Letting the world pass by. I want to stay in the cozy warmth And be lazy all day. My alarm goes off Interupting my dream, singing, "rise and shine it's a beautiful day." "Ugh," I shut it off and drag my body From the warm blankets Into the nipping air. On goes a light, as I fumble Getting dressed for work. Down the stairs I stumble And into a frozen car. I wait ten minutes for it to warm, Then off I go down the road, Starting another work day.

The Fool Hearted Donkey (short story)

Image
I t's not very often that you see a donkey fall from the sky, but when it happened, it wasn't a surprise. The road from Mount Andrket to Rueside  was rough and dangerous. It wound through the mountain pass of Andrket and was only traveled on May through September; the rest of the year it was an avalanche death zone. It was in one of those mid months, July, I think, that a donkey and his master were traveling home from the Rueside market. They had half a day’s walk, which was all down hill, until they would be home. When the donkey, who was getting impatient because he missed his stall, saw his home far below, excitement freely took over. He wildly started looking for the fastest course to take. He noticed the precipice and decided it was the perfect route. He made a violent jump for the precipice. The donkey didn't know how gravity works, but luckily his master knew and understood the unseen power of it. Before the donkey could jump, the master grabbed the donk

Sun Kissed Winter Morn

Image
As I thought of you; The sun awoke, Embarrassing the sky With a splash of color, reflecting off many Idle pillow clouds. The fjord glistened. The permafrost sparkled. A crisp breeze passed. As the sun's glimmer Kissed mother earth, I was missing you. Written by Evelyn Creon 

Soft & Deep

Image
I heard a whisper Soft and deep. It made me tremble In my sleep. I shifted a little To see a face. It said, "I love you! Go back to sleep." I closed my eyes And drifted off, While a smile crept Across my face. Written by Evelyn Creon 

Winter Dance

Image
My heart frantically raced, As we danced On powdery white snow Under silver stars. Skirts flung this way And that way. Slipping here and there, We slid everywhere. Falling once or twice, Our laughter echoed Through the nipping air Back and forth. Our smiles of Joy Hid in shadows Of the church's lights In the parking lot. Hand in hand we danced On white ground. Our hearts wildly racing, And eyes beaming. Written by 

Question Time

Here are five random questions, so you all can know me a little better.   Do you prefer to write with a blue or black pen?     Blue  Do you prefer reading paper or electronic  books?  Paper, because they have distinct smells that help engrave each story in you brain.  Do you like ice in your drinks?  Yes, ice is an every day essential.  What's your favorite scent  Petrichor, the refreshing smell of rain.  Do you like your cereal soggy or crunchy? I prefer it a little mush and crunchy at the same time.  Bonus question:  When you look at a guy, what is the first three things you notice? Eyes, hands, and smile. I hope to start doing a question day at the end of each month.

Mask of Pride

Image
Every day I get caught up in my daily life, I forget that some of the most powerful and inspiring poetry is not just about every day life. It's about living, feeling, and most importantly emotion. Anybody can write a rhyming phrase that sounds good, but a poet digs within his or herself and writes what hurts them most to write, the dirty grimy stuff that they don't want to show the world. Recently I realized that my was not digging into the depths of me, instead I was writing halfheartedly with no empowering emotion. So, today I bring you a poem that is full of my emotion.  Mask of Pride I walked up the street with my head held high, I had no shame only my pride.  Pride the one thing that held me together, To get me up off the ground when I was under the weather.  No matter the day, night, or time I showed it not, my mask of pride.  Pride covered my sadness, hurt, and anger.  It helped me live my life and stay put together.  When ever I fell, was beat

Headache Extreme

Image
My head was pounding, It knew not relief. The dreadful pain drummed As I prayed for some peace. No peace came To ease my pain, So I bore it on with grief. I could not run, or jump, Nor bend to my knees. All of those things Caused overwhelming pain. I dared not look at light at all For it shined so bright It formed a dizzy spell. My head felt as if it would burst! The thought scared me More than it could ever hurt. Written By Evelyn Creon
