WILD FLOWER... SPA's WILDFLOWERS CHALLENGE...


 Let's be wildflowers. 
Let our souls be scattered by the wind 
let us grow, wild and free, 
tall and brave, in the places that we dream, 
in the places where our longings are filled. 
Let us grow between the cracks of brokenness, 
and we will make everything beautiful.

We lived in the blank white spaces 
at the edges of print. 
It gave us more freedom. 
We lived in the gaps between the stories."

I’m counting my freckles 
And so far I’ve seen 
One thousand two-hundred and seventeen.

One thousand two-hundred and Shoot! 
I lost count!

Write a nutty poem,

That ain't been there before.”

VINTAGE TIME... SPA's TIMEPIECE CHALLENGE...


 Time, time, time 
See what's become of me 
While I looked around for my possibilities 
I was so hard to please 
Look around Leaves are brown 
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter... 
...Hang on to your hopes, my friend 
That's an easy thing to say 
But if your hopes should pass away 
Simply pretend that you can build them again 
Look around The grass is high 
The fields are ripe 
It's the springtime of my life 
Seasons change with the scenery 
Weavin' time in a tapestry 
Won't you stop and remember me? 
Look around 
Leaves are brown 
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

LITTLE FLOWER... OMM's FLOWER CHALLENGE...


 "If you love a flower, don’t pick it up. 
Because if you pick it up it dies 
and it ceases to be what you love. 
So if you love a flower, let it be.

Love is about appreciation."

SPECIAL DELIVERY... SPA's POSTAGE PEOPLE CHALLENGE...


 It’s hard to believe it, for a brief period of 6 years, it was possible to mail a baby or small child through the U.S. Postal Service. 
Yeah, you heard it right, it was legal to mail a baby in the United States and it happened more than once and by all accounts. 
 In 1913, The United States Postal Service introduced parcel posts. Before then, all packages sent by mail had to weigh 4 pounds (1.8 kg) or under. 
 With the commencement of the parcel service, people could now ship anything below 50 pounds (23 kg). 
But almost immediately, it had some unintended consequences as some parents tried to send their children through the mail.

REFLECTION OBSESSION... OMM's MIRROR CHALLENGE...


 I wanna know what you see
 when you look in the mirror
 on a day you’re feeling good. 
I wanna know what you see 
when you look in the mirror 
on a day you’re feeling bad. 
I wanna know the first person who taught you 
your beauty could ever be reflected 
on a lousy piece of glass.
