January Biolet #31

let us see past our differences,
shedding assumptions, labels, names
the things we need are all the same
love, compassion, significance
shedding assumptions, labels, names
let us see past our differences

January Biolet #30

the dopplers never lie to us
save yourselves a tempest’s coming
panic surges and then nothing
a spot of rain for all this fuss
save yourselves a tempest’s coming
the dopplers never lie to us

So…true story. I live in a mid-Atlantic state. When the weather forecasters utter the “s” words, snow…sleet…people here panic. Now I grew up in Chicago and it’s suburbs, so I’m not used to this sort of thing. We learned how to drive in the stuff as teenagers. Not here. The prospect of an inch or two of snow followed by freezing rain and plummeting temperatures causes all manner of mayhem. Schools and businesses close. Store shelves are depleted of milk and bread and if you happen to be at work when the stuff starts coming down there is a steady shuffle to the parking lot to get home before it gets bad. I know, because my cubicle is situated at the exit door.

Yesterday was one such weather event day. Just after noon a light rain started. My desk is near a window so there was an occasional glance over my shoulder to assess the situation. “Here it comes!” said one onlooker. “You need to get out and home before it gets bad,” said another. “Don’t stay too late.” “Be careful out there.” By now the schools had closed, so the parents were the first to escape danger. Then the rest of the staff made their way out into the tempest, which after an hour or so, had passed. The sky was bright blue with a few soft wisps of white. But the weather forecasters had told us to expect up to two inches of snow. One can’t be too careful you know. It all made me laugh!

As for me, I stayed on to the end of my shift. I got a lot of work done. No interruptions. And when it was time to go, I was rewarded with the most beautiful red sky sunset.

So that is what inspired my Biolet today. There were still rumblings if doom uttered today. It’s supposedly going to be very cold, not as cold as those North of us are facing, but cold. It is winter after all. This too shall pass. 😄🤣😄

Capitalist Mantra

just do it, because you’re worth it
let your fingers do the walking
have it your way, now you’re talking
you deserve a break…lovin’ it
let your fingers do the walking
just do it, because you’re worth it

January Biolet #27 & #28

You get a two-fer today. The day slipped away from me yesterday. Below is a photo of my little rescue pup, “Gabby”. She had a spa day. She hates spa days. I am surely on her bad list. So unlike other days, this photo has nothing to do with the biolets…but as I said I’ve been crazy busy. And it make me chuckle. Poor spoiled kumquat!🤣

27-

how warm the sun feels on my skin
streaming soft through the window pane
cloudless blue skies, no sign of rain
here, sheltered from the frigid wind
streaming soft through the window pane
how warm the sun feels on my skin

28-

when I was young and gullible
why, I believed ‘most anything
let others tell me what to think
got me in a heap of trouble
why, I believed ‘most anything
when I was young and gullible

January Biolet #26

spring’s first ambassadors emerge
dressed in deep cerulean blue
a touch of warmth blooms life anew
as winter shrieks its final dirge
dressed in deep cerulean blue
spring’s first ambassadors emerge
