Monday Museful Musings

Hello Monday and a Happy Afternoon to all!

A little museful poetic aside for you today.


A Nap

by Joelle Wilson

Today I am moving at a snail’s pace,

I woke up tired with a lack luster expression

on my face and as I try and try

I just can’t seem to wipe the sleep

out from my eyes,

and I really need to

I have things I want to do,

wish all I had to was raise up

my fingers and snap,

but I think what I’ll do is

just nap.

Monday Morning Meandering

Good Morning Monday!

Good Morning everyone!

So this morning I was wondering about the number 2.


It’s interesting to me in a mathematical sense because I had a mathematical thought today.

Here is how the thought happened or occurred or something….


The number 2 seems different than other numbers.

2 x 2 = 4 and

2 + 2 = 4.


1 + 1 = 2       and 1 x 1 = 1

3 x 3 = 9   but 3 + 3 = 6


4 + 4 = 8 but 4 x 4 =16

5 + 5 = 10  and 5 x 5 = 25

I did the calculations through 12 x 12 = 144 but 12 + 12 = 24 and oh man my mind went into overdrive for this thought. Why is this so?  🙂

Silly mind that I have. I mean there must be a mathematical reason for all of this but I didn’t get that far into the thought because I had to get up and start my day.

I think things that maybe no one else I know thinks. Maybe. At least I do when it’s early in the day.

What are thinking about today?

Whatever it is you are thinking, make it goodly thoughts that will lead to goodly action that will lead to a positive day for yourself.


p.s. you thought I was going to say goodly again didn’t you. 🙂

It’s still simmering there in the back of my mind though, waiting it’s turn to come up front.

The Last Magnetic Monday

Yes you read the title correctly. This is the last Magnetic Monday post. Not the last one forever, just for now.

What can I say? I like change. Magnetic Monday was great for a couple of months but now, I need something different.

Not sure what the change is yet, but I’ll know for sure before next Monday rolls into view.

For now though…..

wild, animal, perfect, sleep.

Those are the words that caught my eye this morning.

I find myself wandering today

across this landscape of

laughter and broken promises.

And inside I feel the

call of my heart.

This once perfect shell

I built around me to protect me

only served to keep me

in a state of perfect sleep.

Now though,

I feel myself waking to

the new possibilities

of life.

the haze is lifting

and I feel the first

stirrings of a

wild animal

in my soul.


Hope you find some hidden treasures this week and remember to make your Monday marvelous. 🙂

Marching On With Magnetics

Magnetic poetry has certainly been fun for me and I certainly hope you have also had a bit-o-fun reading the randomness of my magnetic Monday madness. 🙂

I’m going to continue with the Monday poetic postings however, in April there will be a slight change up in the magnetic musings.

April is the month of new beginnings as it is the first full month of Spring in this part of the world. So in following Mother Nature’s format of newness, magnetic Mondays will also be a-changing.

For April I will pull three words from the magnetic words pile and then write a poem based on those words. That is the basic plan for April. I’m pondering on the specifics and will catch you up next week on the finalized edition of said plan.

For now though….on with the magnetic musings of March!

Words that were pulled:

memory   I   for  play  me  music sweet  sing  between   your  wild  let

I rearranged them into:

I sing between

sweet memory,

let your music

play wild for me.

That was a fun one for sure. 🙂

Have a happy-full Monday and may your week shine with memory and music.
