Mirabella H. Lugubrious

Poor old Ms. Lugubrious
So sad and so forlorn.
She often said to herself,
“Why was I ever born”?

Exclaiming her whinged wailings,
Anguished from alleged rebuffs.
She complained out loud daily,
“I cannot survive these snubs!”

No amount of whining
Or constant peevish complaints
Would alleviate her irritation or
Pull in upon her restraints. . .

She grumbled, groused, and griped.
Her demeanor set in stone,
Old Mirabella H. Lugubrious
Destined forever to be alone…

    Rhonda… you amaze me :)
    Your art work has a personality all its own, and this one is chalked full of it.
    Your words, as always, are exceptionally put together. Would be great to see
    dear Mirabella in a series of words and images… would be a great little book
    or calander :)


  • Thanks so very much Roger…. I am hoping that I can expand on her with perhaps little stories with morals or something… II appreciate your encouragement…. :o)

  • Calendar: I need to figure out a way to place the poetry that I write next to the image so I can share the writing as well as the images. I guess I would have to create a duplicate of the image with the poem on it…
    You’ve given me an idea… Thank you Rog!! I just might do that to make a SPECIAL calendar.

    Awwww I kinda feel sorry for her! I was wondering if there was a talent you don’t have? You are a gifted artist, fabulous writer and you use a camera like a pro! I love this write, every word!

  • I know, it would be a sad life… although, since she has always been this way perhaps that is what makes her happy.. LOL, who knows?
    Thank you for your wonderful compliments… wow, such accolades.. Let me tell you, there is plenty that I don’t have a talent for… you are so sweet, thanks again…
    xoxo ♥
