LIKE TWO WEE KIDS

A breakaway To share with friends Have been indoors For weeks on end Cautiously emerging From total isolation Wiping sleep from tired eyes look forward to a joyous celebration ~ When Corvid struck most every Nation No more outings No more friends Life for me was home alone a tortoise fast asleep in hibernation ~ Now with my mask And handy gel I’m so excited Can’t you tell For today I’m off to Devon And I’m in seventh heaven I am sharing a break With my bestie ~ my mate Both her and I are soaring high No hugs just yet Two metres must be kept Sending out our virtual hugs that come straight from our heart Laughing ~ talking ~ catching up like two wee kids just wishing it would start… Written 14th July 2020 Contest STRAND COMPLETELY NEW (10) Sponsor Brian Strand HONORABLE MENTION

It is great that you have such a fine time waiting for you; I can feel your excitement and I am so there for you! Wishing it was me. In a year or two maybe; things are going really badly over here.

What giddy joy you project in your words, dear Ann! I think many of us look forward to being reunited with those whose company we've been so deprived of. Love your rhythms and flow, as always. Your sky loving buddy ~ John

You are a very spiritual, and beautifully constructed person just as you (H)onestly, and (O)pen-mindedly, and ever-(W)illfuly apply yourself towards any efforts that you prescribe for yourself to follow, that all work for another, all-included, for yourself and all life, as well as, for our, "Creator!" "Because, when you believe in something; this all can be anything that consistently works for you individually ("Especially when and if, and just exactly wherever we all can possibly be helpful to another, special, something or someone who are in essence, just like ourselves each individually, and ever-vitally") you; can apply yourself towards this effort with all of your heart and mind, and body; spiritedly, and ever-soulfully as well as emotionally, systematically, and ritualistically." So goes the "Religion" "Universal, a big chunk of truth, not too hard to swallow, not unless, this effort is not followed!"
