It’s been over three months since I’ve been in blogland, and I’m still unsure of my plans. But I wanted to say “hello” and see how you’re doing. I’ve been busy in school, taking another English class and writing a lot. However, I haven’t written poetry since I left for my blog break. Inspiration has been scarce, but hopefully I’ll find some soon. Anyway, I hope the new year has been great to you so far, and I wish for the coming months to be just as wonderful!
I’m closing with an old haiku from years ago and wishing you all a very Happy Friday! Sending much love, Lauren♥

Too much schoolwork can make anyone disappear.
True, Binky! Well, I’ll try to balance it all and see how well I do. 🙂
Hi Lauren, delighted to hear from you. I was thinking of you only the other day and here you are!
Glad to hear that you’re doing a lot of writing and I hope the family are well.
Take care and be sure to keep in touch.
Thanks, Jean, and it’s good to see you! I hope all is well in your world, too! I’m enjoying the essay writing; now if only some poetic thoughts would graciously come my way. 🙂 I’ll visit your blog soon and I look forward it! ♥ xo
Hi Lauren, don’t fret. They are sure to be back in no time. Just don’t look too hard.
Thanks, Jean, very good advice. 🙂
Nice to know you are doing fine and
to see you pinging again, Lauren. My warm wishes your way….
Thanks so much, Raj, and it’s nice to see you again, too. I hope all is well and I’ll visit your blog very soon. Take good care!
Lovely to know you are still around Lauren, enjoy your time out on Blog break, it is good to take time out, as Word press can become a Chore instead of Pleasure.
Kind regards and Best wishes.
Thanks, Ian, and you’re so right. Between life events and school, blogging was thrown to the back burner, but I’ve returned again slowly, until the next break. 🙂 Hope all is well and see you soon on your site!

Thanks for your encouraging words, Sue. It’s so good to see you again and I won’t force the poems; they’ll come when or if they’re ready again. But I do look forward to visiting you and other blogs, and maybe I’ll find inspiration. Sending lots of love and blessings back to you, my friend…and many hugs! 🙂 ♥ xoxo
Yes your poetry will bloom again when its ready.. in the mean time take care of you and lots of hugs xxx ❤
Thanks, my friend! Big hugs back! xo
Thanks so much, Mino!
Wishing you every success with your writing.
Thanks, Ian, I need every little ounce. 🙂 I can’t wait to read your wonderful stories again, too!
Taking a break from blogs in a good choice at times… I am glad to read your haiku- which is beautiful- and to hear your updates… Very good luck with your projects. Aquileana ⭐️…
Blog breaks are good, Aquileana. I’ve taken several in the last five years, and I know this one won’t be my last either. 🙂 Thanks so much for your kind words and wishes, and hopefully I’ll have some new poetry to share in the near future. Take care! ♥
Best to you and hope to read more of your beautiful writing.
Thanks so much! It’s nice to see you and I appreciate that. I only hope inspiration will arrive sooner than later. 🙂
I’m certain it will. x
Lovely haiku. When I’m really stuck I like to take a line from another poet (Mary Oliver is my go-to) and use it as a title for a new poem. Good luck and happy inspiration.
Thanks, Victoria, and that’s a great idea. We shall see what happens, and Mary Oliver is one of my favorites, too.
You will do just as well this semester as you did in the last.
Much love xoxo
Thanks, Deb! You’re a great “encourager” and I’m just happy to be enjoying the ride right now. 🙂 Sending lots of love to you, my friend! ♥
Glad to see you back. You’ve been missed, dear friend. Hugs.
Aww, thanks, Michelle! It’s good to be back! Many hugs to you, too!
It’s good to see you back after a long time….
Thanks so much! I’m back sporadically, while doing homework, but am glad, too! 🙂
