Drunk apostrophes found the missing dot
The dotted line, oh so grateful
Letters in alphabet soup come together
Blank scrabble tiles on sale
Paper dolls are totally bumfuzzled
Their selfies have no character
The man in the moon ordered fries
Fleets of drones blanket the sky
Don’t use search engines to find your life
You may find yourself in fake news
Don’t weave a tale with conspicuous styling
Look in the mirror you’ll recognize the face
Life’s not tied with a bow but it’s still a gift
Make the journey count not the aha moment
Let’s Meet & Greet one another at the Tuesday Chatter Cafe
Reviews On All Things beauty
Writings on Life, Love, Music and Whatever Comes to Mind
A Collective of Poems and Photos
Making blessings out of this busy life!
