my friends: a limerick.


Coffee when I rise and more before day’s end
A gentle breeze and flowers on growing stems
A tiny dark chocolate kiss
A good book to read is bliss
A drink, a scent, and comfort… these are my friends

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Hawaii where she could learn to surf. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

        • Oh, right now… I haven’t been reading at all! Writing… and kids home for the summer… I’ve not read for a while. And what I read, well, I always expect people to laugh at me. 🙂

            Totally understand! I used to be a 3 book a week reader and I haven’t done that in about 3-4 years. After I started writing again, I stooped almost completely for a long time. Relationship, kids, house, work, writing. No time. I did recently buy several and read two of them. I’m glad I did. I forgot how much I love stories.

            I promise not to laugh! I read it have read all kind of books!

            • I used to read that much, too. I think it’s mostly the writing that has taken over because that’s what I seem to do now during the time I would have been reading.

              Well… I love romance and love stories. But not super-cheesy romance like the ones with Fabio on the cover. I need a good story to go with my love stories. For reading and writing!

  7. Well, I had lots of coffee, then a mocha later, a chocolate chip cookie after lunch, so I’m good! Today the only thing better might be Jamocha Almond Fudge ice cream *sigh*
