New Adventures

Trepidatious

Exciting anticipation

Will it go bad?

Will it go well?

How’s my attitude?

How’s their attitude?

Goals should align

Or at least not conflict

It’s big time

After pandemic slowdown

Pace yourself

Everything in moderation

But if you have the opportunity

Take it

Procrastinating

And excuses

Aren’t allowed

Be ready

Be quick

Be efficient

Be respectful

Don’t forget

To be thankful

Freedom

Standard

Years I have been writing posts and years others have said when are you going to write about something other then sadness and grief? When are you going to believe you are in control of your own destiny?

Still here nothing has changed still the same person, same problems, and same lifestyle.

I am so far in quicksand or Guantanamo Bay that I don’t know what I could grab onto to get out. What do I do?

Said my affirmations, said my prayers, talked with my family, friends and nothing is budging.

Move Jennie Move but no real estate person will return my inquiries, no new job offers unless they are controlled by the previous job.

I can’t move, but move, then stop following me every where I go. I know I certainly don’t follow you. Give me my freedom. I deserve freedom. Jennie Nawrocki deserves freedom.

Unrequited Love

Unrequited love

Is a mess

For one finds it annoying

And frustrating

While they is lonesome

And intranced

The day

And lots of listening

And understanding

Even then

To want

To believe

Standard
The Natural History Puzzle Book by Dr. Gareth Moore

Wanted to remind myself

Of my Anthropology background

But goodness gracious

Stumped and stuck

Is it easy for you?

Don’t mind saying

You are smart if it is

They say

Knowledge is power

Well knowledge can

Also be specific

Is it general knowledge

Or specific knowledge

You have?

What knowledge

Do you want to gain?

It is important

Because your

New knowledge

Adds to

Community strength

And personal satisfaction

Huh?

Maybe homework

Was good?

-Jennie Nawrocki

Water Slide

Standard

It’s hot

So hot

Jump into the pool?

No pool? Huh?

Got a plan

Take the hose

Lay some plastic

Have the water

Roll down

The length of of plastic

But wait the corners

A mess

What!

Doused in water spray

That’s it

Going inside

Soon a jug

Poured right over the body

Dripping

Soaked to the bone

And the spray

Is directly on me

Running

Laughing

Water poured

back and forth

It is no longer hot.

Just time to

Officially

Go down

That water slide
