Superstitious by nature? Don’t freak out. It is only your imagination…. Or is it?

Want a glimpse of madness? Gaze into my eye. Tell me what you see.

If we were having coffee, I might recite this haiku…
Wait, before you go
Savor friends and sip of stress

I created the image shown above for a post a few years ago. See “Wait, Before You Go.”
Today, I am reblogging content I created years ago, because I am sick and tired. Seriously, I am not feeling well, and it is getting late. I have to get up early tomorrow for work. And, I doubt my readers will notice the redundancy. I appreciate your understanding.
I am taking part in The Write Tribe Festival of Words #6. Day 7 of the Write Tribe Festival of Words #6 and today’s prompt is: Day 7 (11 Aug/Fri) – ‘If we were having coffee…….’
This is the last day of the festival and writing challenge. I may not post for a while, so in the meantime, heed my words…
Wait, before you go, write bravely.

Dear Mom and Dad,
I love you. You gave me everything. Every thing I should never take for granted. Granted, you were right often.
Dear Brother and Sister.
I love you. You drove me crazy. Crazy seems to be a matter of perspective. Perspective to appreciate you now.
I love you. You provide me with home and hearth. Hearth that we need to stoke from time to time. Time–let’s make some.
Dear Son 1,
I love you. You inspire me to be patient with people. People who have free will to please. Please give us a chance.
Dear Son 2,
I love you. You teach me how to cope with adversity by using humor. Humor will help you to cope with those who don’t. Don’t be a d*ck.

It’s Monday morning, and the annoying melody crescendos while Steph struggles to find her phone.
“Where is that frickin’ thing?”
Steph finds the buzzing monster buried deep in the covers by her feet.
She considers her schedule for the day, “Today, I need to workout on the elliptical machine, pack my lunch, pack my son’s lunch, take a shower, brush my teeth, get ready for work, drive to work, call ABC, do XYZ, drive home, fix dinner, clean up, do a load of laundry…”
Pausing, she thought about her plan to write bravely in the Festival of Words, a blogging challenge hosted by busy bunch of people over in Mumbai at Write Tribe.
“Ack! When am I going to find the time to draft the post for Day 4 and follow the prompt to ‘feature a day in your life or someone else’s life?'”
This is when Steph realized that she could have saved the fabulous free verse she wrote with luxurious abandon during her vacation this past weekend for today’s blog post.
Steph rolls over and falls back to sleep.

Beheld by their splendor, I sat still, gazing at my treasure. Though not mine to truly possess, each provided me with an innate value and enduring promise. Their inner light danced in the summer sun just to catch my breath. My gale swelled with love for these smokey sapphire and golden-flecked gems. As their eyes met mine, my rich soul beamed back. Family is truly a treasure.
This passage and image were inspired by the prompt, “write about a treasure you have.” I wrote this piece and created this image using my smartphone while riding with my family through the Mohave desert.

Good morning, Monday. I know we are friends and all, but why am I looking for your the sunset already?

Nightly garden trail
To glisten before sunrise
Day glow slug to fry
I doodled this faux black velvet painting using Omnisketch last night. I wrote the haiku this morning. ©2017 Stephanie Abbott. All rights reserved.
Beauty slows to find
Daisy’s bright blooms, petals cooled
Basking in Moon’s glow
I sketched this busy bee using Omnisketch, befor I wrote the haiku. ©2017 Stephanie Abbott. All rights reserved.
