Flashback Friday Poetry: Wonderful Memories

wonderful memories sleep in my mind
the most valued possession i can find
material objects are meaningless
immortal is your great memory chest
as life continues on and fades away
all you have left are memorable days
how does one become immortal in time
leave a number of memories behind
to those who remember me when i die
all of you were the apple of my eye

Throwback Thursday Poetry: A Grateful Dead Christmas

tis merry and bright
all through the night
everyone sleeps without cares
dreams of happiness
none are restless
the dwelling is a calm lair
upon arrival
in such style
make for the dancing bear
he’s down the chimney
it’s all empty
except a fat man who stares
“Not again!”, he sighs
shame in his eyes
“You can’t be me again, Jer!
People think you’re dead,”
the fat man said,
“you can’t be seen anymore.
I understand man,
I am a fan,
but too many people get scared!
Jerry Garcia,
nice to see ya’!
Now catch a ride on a Reindeer!”

Early poetry from James. From the poetry collection Pariah Bound: The Lonesome Poetry.

Wacky Wednesday: August 26

On this final Wacky Wednesday of August, the words are wackier than usual. The first word you may not have heard before, but you might be familiar with what is describes. Kakorrhaphiophobia is a noun which refers to an abnormal, persistent, irrational fear of failure. Everyone has experienced a fear of failure, but people with this phobia can find their fear debilitating to the point of them doing nothing. Our next word is another noun. Lamprophony means loudness and clarity of enunciation. One might say something like a stage actor was praised for their lamprophony during the performance.

The holidays today have a bit of everything. For our token food holiday, today is National Cherry Popsicle Day. Who doesn’t like popsicles? It is also National Dog Day. If you were considering finding a new four-legged roommate, today is the day! Next we have two women focused celebrations today. First is National Webmistress Day celebrating women in the web development field. Second is National Women’s Equality Day which commemorates the adoption of the 19thAmendment to the United States Constitution in 1920. After a century, women are still fighting for equal rights in many areas. Show your support for Women’s Equality and be sure to appreciate any women web developers you know today.
