    I'm entering this older piece for a challenge on my other account. ��‍♀️

    AUTOBIOGRAPH-ME
    by Carolyn Glackin
    She had a mind for whimsical things
    Happy-go-lucky, carefree, with no strings
    A joie de vivre junkie, always after a fix
    With a whole lot of silly thrown into the mix
    She had nary a care, save but for a few
    Some minor pet peeves, but just one or two
    With an excess of nonsense
    She was quite prone to laughter
    She lived in the moment
    From now 'til hereafter
    Growing up was unheard of
    She just wouldn't dare!
    Though she gave the appearance
    Through her savoir faire
    With the heart of a child and the soul of a fairy
    She managed quite well and was rarely contrary
    Buoyant and bubbly, bouncily bright
    She thrived on elation, mirth, and delight
    Her mind like a playground where creativity soared
    Imagination ran wild and she never grew bored
    She had a penchant for goodies and sweets
    Chocolate confections and all sorts of treats
    Cookies and pies and baked goods galore
    Just a taste here and there
    She needn't much more
    She was rather thick skinned, not easily hurt
    When faced with unkindness she was civil and curt
    A practical sort, she was not one to dwell
    She moved on in peace, and wished one and all well
    Any hurts she might cause were never intended
    And she believed in the thought
    That all could be mended
    She wouldn't play favorites, take sides or lay blame
    A believer in fairness, regarding all just the same
    No more and no lesser, none better or worse
    Some thought it a blessing, some thought it a curse
    In her mind at all times
    This thought she would see:
    We are all branches, upon the same tree
    If we're hurting the one, we're hurting the other
    Thus we're hurting ourselves
    And each sister and brother
    Clearly, that's madness, and perhaps quite insane
    So she focused on peace, to minimize pain
    She cut no one out, even if they did part
    She carried them with her, for all time, in her heart
    Because life is so fleeting
    And it's precious and true
    Petty fights just aren't worth it
    And this, she well knew
    So she forged on ahead, with hope in her heart
    Each day a true blessing, and a brand new fresh start.

    The following piece is my submission to my wonderfully innovative, dear friend @laughing_soul 's #mumbojumbo_LS_chal challenge. ��

    HAVE YOU HEARD?
    by Carolyn Glackin
    Mumbo jumbo
    Fiddle faddle
    Words that make
    Bad moods skedaddle
    Silly sayings
    So amusing
    Some are goofy
    Some, confusing
    Jesting, joshing
    Holy smoking
    Jeez Louise!
    So thought provoking!
    Or how about
    A few tongue twisters?
    They're sure to please
    Your bros and sisters!
    Riotous, rollicking
    Wild uproars
    Watch and wait
    As they clamor for more!
    Melodious musings
    To soothe the mind
    To bring on peace
    As you unwind
    You can say them
    With a friend
    Try and use them
    Without end
    Me? I'm just
    This poem's
    Narrator
    See you later
    Alligator!

    'Holy smoking' refers to the well known, antiqued exclamation 'Holy Smokes.'

    Ok, this one's for my account name challenge over yonder on @carolyns_challenge_account ...
    A big thank you to the following lovely ladies for kindly bearing my unauthorized use of their account names: ������

    @laughing_soul ♥️

    @smelly_cat ♥️

    @bluepuppy01 ♥️

    I've also written a much longer piece, but I'll get to that one later. Anyway, it's a really amusing challenge, and the submissions I've read thus far have been awesome. Feel free to check it out, and/or join in. ��
    Blessings,
    Carolyn

    In case it's difficult to see in the image, here's the piece:

    There once was a laughing soul
    Who had such a smelly cat
    She had a blue puppy too
    And there's something
    Quite wrong about that!
    For a pup should never be blue
    And a feline should surely not smell
    But I left the conundrum aside
    'Cause I'm really not one to dwell.

    Plight of warrior was given the redemption to its grey shades of mortality..
    Flabbergasted by the bereft of hope in the dark cold territory...

    Hymn was his only deliverance, for an union with his troop...
    Haunted in the reverie was the little nincompoop...

    Blessing beyond paradise, to overcome all the pain...
    Approached it with a sense of joie de vivre, to walk the terrain..

    The burning issue nowadays are ,"Environmental degradation", "Deforestation," "Global Warming". It's only our awareness which can save the world , protect our"Mother Earth".

    Woods , lush green
    It's Lord's blessings.
    Contentment everywhere
    Nature singing joie de vivre.
    Sunbeams touching the meadow
    Woods creating shadow.
    Shadow of protection
    Protection to travellers,
    Protection and safety
    Against "UV radiation"
    O Human ,
    It's serious.
    Devastation copious.
    Our existence at stake.
    Today , let's take the vow
    Allow the trees to lovingly grow.

    Joie de vivre - it's what my first thought have been when you came to my life, a serendipitous occurrence yet a transient one rather than incessant.
    I thought maybe, just once, if I open myself up to someone and show them the real me, the person would accept me as I am - both light and dark. While I was contemplating what you make me feel, what I should do about it, everything turned upside down.
    Why did I ever think that in my chaotic cursed life anything would be different? Why did I think you would be a deviation from the norm? At the end of the day, I realized that happiness didn't last long, and in my case it's nothing but an illusion. I could smile and it would be that, till the smile would be taken away.
    I couldn't ever be happy for long as my sense of happiness only stayed till the next quest rings in front of me; also, no happiness resides in a person, but finding contentment within yourself is the key to happiness.
    I have tried, to find happiness in many things and people - including you. I have tried to open up the door to my darkness, and a little speck of light that I hide as a hope that one day my curse will break and I will breathe in the fresh air of freedom and mirth. But now, for now, I am all I have and I have learned to choose myself as my joie de vivre than anyone, not even you.
    Not all can handle the pariah of the world.

    Joie De Vivre

    Despite all the miseries
    That life offered her
    Again and again
    She never gave up hope
    She never fell apart
    She never surrendered;
    As she was a firm believer
    That her happiness awaits
    So she cut off the shrouds
    Broke all the chains
    Vowed to herself
    To never let her faith sway
    And she set off on journey
    Of Joie de vivre

    Find the joy of life

    Dream a lot reach your goal
    Live the life full of suprises
    No matter how cruel it is
    Joie de vivre with all your heart

    Find new friends try a new thing
    Be the healer, be the unstoppable wind
    On your way you will find your wings
    Joie de vivre and give love to everything.

    Joie de vivre

    The Joie de vivre,
    Lies in the summer mornings ,
    Thats the earliest sunrise of the year,
    When the Sun rays touches the peak of the mountains,
    The cool breeze which you have craved for,
    In the long summer days.

    The joie de vivre,
    Lies in the monsoons,
    Thats the earth that smells pleasant ,
    When the first rains hits the ground,
    Then the sand absorbs its share of water
    & Now the flowers bloom into its beauty.

    The joie de vivre ,
    Lies in the long nights of the winter,
    When the cold don't allow us ,
    To get out from our cozy armchairs,
    & when the homes seek the warmth of the sun ,
    In the short afternoons .
