I became interested in poetry about a year ago and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at https://rosypoems.com
The World seems to be upside down we laugh we smile we hide a frown Our purpose once so important and everlasting has surely taken on a new casting this stage we set ourselves upon as we rush around and look beyond always striving to do the best and putting ourselves to the longest test when really we animals in human clothing as we hate, love, bully and often loathing others who are better than we if we sit and take it easy we are seen to be twee! life is a game survival of the fittest birth, live, wear out die thats what we do with an interlude of importantance just in view we should really just take time to be with our families that is what we need the most please give a toast! to that! the other stuff just doesnt matter families should be together and that is that the blood flows through us and should be as one and if not we fall apart and the day is done the World 2020 has stretched too far and now its at a crux and will need a bar to appreciate the simple things in life like birds singing sunshine and a simple life so take is easy strive for less “things” they dont make you happy just sing with your family and friends together not in little boxes on your own where you will just die with a groan
Here is a little ditty for Saturday, not done a poem in ages, this is a pix of my children when they were young playing in the snow, many moons ago! they are grown up now. I wonder if it will snow this year? SNOW FUN the snow has fallen oh what fun my children go out look cute its just begun snow ball fights and snow men too slip slidding on the frost is something you just have to do! its really cold and icy but we dont care there is so much fun to share on a snowy winter day together we dont really mind the weather we jump and laugh and have such laughs too the snowy world is such a lovely view! Then once we have had enough and feel chilly will go indoors no willy nilly (whatever that means!) and mum and dad will have hot chocolate for us take off our wet clothes and make a fuss and comfy on the sofa we will be to watch some cartoons on the TV! Til next time when we venture out like a little girl guide or boy scout and play outside it is the best fresh air in our lungs whatever the weather rain snow or shine and just being together LETS HAVE FUN!

Hi Toni thank you for your email. The list of tips was very good I sent an email regarding the badge to buy but did not get a reply, please resend link I am still sustaining further sight loss to glaucoma. It is like a fading picture with more white mist and millions of little black and white dots, it is horrible to be sure but am getting more determination to stay independent. I did not cry this morning. I usually wake and am very upset. Today the vision is a lot worse. I have just had my tescos delivery of food so have to put that away shortly. Not much else planned for the day but may go for a walk later. Yesterday i went for a walk witha lady from The Ramblers at social distance of course which was nice to get out and go for a longer walk with my Guide Dog. I felt i had acomplished something after that and a bit healthier too though a bit tired this morning. I still can see a bit but am worried when it will all go to white mist as dont feel prepared for it and espcially being on my own here. I have Soundscape on my iphone, i find the voice over very difficult to use and was wondering whether to get an android phone with voice over do you know which ones have this, i will ask the RNIB tech group. So today i will take it easy and get used to a further layer of sight loss Toni I hope this finds you well and staying safe also kind regards Rosy
Often when people are unhappy, overwhelmed and out of sorts, their friends and family see them in their different light and cannot cope with it so they leave them alone and turn away. It is in fact at this time that they need someone the most to be with them to give them support love and kindness. To be even more isolated and rejected can cause the feelings of not wanting to live anymore and that they are no longer needed. We all need to feel that we ok and things are right and happy,t is the survival of the fittest game, as usual as humans are animals after all. Just remember if someone is sad and out of sorts they need a hug and someone to talk to and to feel they are worthy. Perhaps they are not wearing the clothes you like, their hair is a mess, they are too thin or too fat whatever is normally astetically pleasing not there! Remember it is easy to love and care for someone who looks beautiful and has a perfect seemingly life but it much harder to love someone who is not that way….
For what we need in this World is Peace and that energy put into saving the plant or finding another terra forma to live on in the future for our children? Does that make what we do every day seem insignificant? In this great Universe, where we each and everyone of us think we are so important, as we stumble and mumble about our day? in a very professional way, i may add?
