Sunday Scribblings #184: Girl, Me Too Wish You Were Here Now

You know I note down and share a few events and celebrations each week, including the major ones that many of us already know about as well as the quirky ones and other small yet meaningful ones. April 7th celebrates Girl, Me Too Day, which is a day “to recognize the strength and endurance of women of all ages, showing support and coming alongside each other through thick and thin” (source).

So here is to women and girls of all ages all across the world, lending support to one another, and making womankind stronger each day.

Poetic Sundays: Wishful (th)Ink(ing)

NaPoWriMo’s day 7 prompt: Write a poem titled “Wish You Were Here” that takes its inspiration from the idea of a postcard. Consistent with the abbreviated format of a postcard, your poem should be short, and should play with the idea of travel, distance, or sightseeing.

Wish You Were Here (Or At least Saying “Me Too”)
I sent a postcard to my muse
Enclosed a snap at my frazzled best
Hoping she would not refuse
My simple humble single request
I wish you were here, I really do.
(And I hope you say “me too!”

(Bu my muse, she is on that faraway beach
Nestled under mountains, away from reach.
With books for company, and desserts galore
I wonder if she even remembers me anymore!)

On My Blog & at Home

My recent posts since and including my last Sunday Scribblings (Each one includes a poetry book or two from the letter of the day)

We had my husband’s maternal uncle spend a couple of days with us, and it was wonderful having him here, even if briefly. And now he is off for further travels, visiting other relatives.


On My Blog & Homefront

Well, I am once again already playing catchup with posts at the end of the day rather than the start. But hoping to continue to post each day as much as possible (though I know next weekend is going to be tough)

We have get-togethers planned with wonderful celebrations in the extended family so that will keep me busy as well (hoping i can get my muse back from her vacation with some superpowers too so I can actually write additional posts to schedule posts!!! LOL at myself here!)

  1. I really like that poem, it is really lovely. I always enjoy reading those. Sounds like a lot of great celebrations coming up too.

  2. It can be overwhelming to keep up with the workload at times, leading to the need to play catchup with tasks. This struggle to stay on top of responsibilities is something many people can relate to in their daily lives.

  3. The vast number of “days” dedicated to people, products, recipes, and ideas and more always amazes me. Your list is awesome.
