PredatorsPrey – Rabies or hydrophobia is a viral neuroinvasive disease that causes acute encephalitis or inflammation of the brain in humans. It is
transmitted by an infected animal bite. It is fatal if left untreated. PP in her novel
“rabid” has two girls Samantha Reaves and Hannah, who find their neighbor Mr Hamilton dead from rabies. The symptoms leave a
vacuous look. Hannah too is afflicted. What NOW?
Nikkiandyou – Well, well. Don’t judge a book by its cover. At least Nikki feels so in her
poem “a daisy, waiting…..”. A daisy grows amidst beautiful roses. It is simple but proud of itself. It has an identity that
it preserves. It is not easily intimidated. It stands alone among roses and weeds. It sways gently. It knows that its calmness and peace will carry it THROUGH.
shamsud – Hmm. This is thoughtful. Another Christmas will be with us in about five months. So lets enjoy its festivity in
Shamsud‘s poem “i am dirty I need washing”. He is out shopping for Christmas is
around. Suddenly it starts to rain. A child says this too shall pass. The mother agrees. They may become dirty but they will wash it away. Rain washes away the DIRT.
tuscanybimbim – Life can be a bitch if there is no hope and negativity fills all around. Tuscany
in her poem “life of a chipmunk” speaks on this wretchedness. There lived a chipmunk in a small shoe. Life was a
barren journey. There was nothing more to gain or lose. Life had come to a standstill. It was time to come to terms with the hard REALITY.
Tim Rhoads – Tim plays for a band called Public Face. He wrote the lyrics for this song. You will end up loving his poem
“ae”. He doesn’t want to leave. He willingly wishes to stay with her forever. He will do anything she asks of him. He must get
his fix. He sees his life passing by as she drifts away. There is nothing more left to SAY.
Wolfz4me – To love is painful enough but to lose that love is worst. Wolfz in her poem
“lost my love of life” has lost the love of her life. As she walks down the familiar path, she remembers the times gone by. They
were together but she messed it all up. She waits on the bench where they met first. She has lost all hope BUT…
Werewulf14 – Whoa. Here is another song. Kinda sad but still lovely. Werewulf in her misc
piece “just not my day (song)” talks about having a hard day. Nothing works out this particular day. She missed the school bus,
fell in a puddle and people trip her and she falls. People laugh when others are hurt. She recovers. She ends up saying it is not her DAY.
ashley2 – Sure, loneliness can kill anyone. feel it in Ash‘s poem
“isolation”. She is shunning society. She has isolated herself in her room for reasons best known to her. She feels the
loneliness and its pain. She wishes to go out, mingle and have fun. She is not this shy girl but a spirited one. She wants others’ support to bring her real self out. HELP!
kodwobrumpon – What is a smile? What does it do for us and others? This is something Kodwo’s
poem “a smiley smile” answers.It is an infectious feature of our face.It is
contagious. It is a celebrity by itself. It is attractive and beautiful. It is like a magnet. It is full of happiness and charm. It makes others our friends. It spreads warmth. OO LA
shayzzee – She is my 800th author to write about. Cheryl Petro in her novel
“liquid comfort – a surf story” brings up many issues she has faced in real life. Travis Kelly’s desire is to win the world
surfing championship. He wants to beat his rival Kane. Unfortunately he loses his arm in a shark attack and goes in depression. He floats between hope and drugs. TOUGH
Take care until next week...CHEERS!... and lots of luv and kisses...and...and...(I said SHUT UP!!!)
