Poetry – Marilyn Style Continues!

034

Hi again!

We hope your weekend was wonderful.  We’ve been busy ourselves.  Lots of family stuff, friends, trips and the ever popular, chores.  With Spring in full bloom, we’ve been cleaning out, organizing and giving away ‘stuff’ that we no longer need.  What about you?  Have you been bit with the spring bug to purge, clean and organize?

Well, with all that said, we wanted to share another few poems from Marilyn.  These are fun, and reveal a deepness in her that few knew.  Enjoy!!

Don’t cry my doll

Don’t cry

I hold you and rock you to sleep

Hush hush

I’m pretending now

I’m not your mother who died.

MM Cript

Life-

I am of both your directions

Existing more with the cold frost

Strong as a cobweb in the wind

Hanging downward the most

Somehow remaining

those beaded rays have the colours

I’ve seen in paintings-ah life

they have cheated you

thinner than a cobweb’s thread

sheerer than any-

but it did attach itself

and held fast in strong winds

and singed by the leaping hot fires

life-of which at singular times

I am both of your directions-

somehow I remain hanging downward

the most

as both of your directions pull me.

It’s amazing to us how much sadness was in this woman who was so ‘loved’ by the public. It goes to show that we really don’t know the people around us, even the people we are closest too. So, for this next week, take time. Take time to notice the ‘Marilyn’s’ in your life and show them kindness and tell them how much you appreciate and love them.

Blessings,

K.R. and T.L.

Poetry – Marilyn Style!

thF0HPQ3EV

Hi all!!

We hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend with family and friends and found many spots of joy to revel in.  Here’s another poem by our heroin, Marilyn Monroe, for you to enjoy. 🙂

Marilyn reading

From time to time

I make it rhyme

but don’t hold that kind

of thing

against

me-

Oh well, what the hell,

so it won’t sell.

What I want to tell-

is what’s on my mind:

‘taint Dishes,

‘taint Wishes,

it’s thoughts

flinging by

before I die-

and to think

in ink.

Blessings,

K.R. and T.L.

I left my home of green rough wood,

A blue velvet couch.

I dream till now

A shiny dark bush

Just left of the door.

Down the walk

Clickity clack

As my doll in her carriage

Went over the cracks-

“We’ll go far away.”

Doll carriage

Blessings,

K.R. and T.L.

New Year Resolutions, Marilyn Style!

marilyn-Monroe-292

Hi all!!

We know it’s the fourth of January, and we were wondering just how many resolutions you made on Dec 31st that you’re still keeping? Well, don’t worry, we won’t tell!  For us, it was refreshing to find just how serious Marilyn took resolutions.  Check out the following article.

http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/gossip/marilyn-monroe-1955-new-year-resolutions-surface-article-1.2064032

We wish you the best in 2015 and hope you find the strength and resolve to pursue your dreams and keep those resolutions. Remember, even if you’ve faltered, it’s never to late to start again. And who knows, you may find some inspiration within Marilyn’s resolutions.

Blessings,

K.R. and T.L.

Marilyn Monroe Christmas

MM giving Christmas

Hi all!!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.  Or, so the song goes.  For most, it is a wonderful time, but for some, it’s a very hard time.  Hard emotionally, financially and physically.  We understand how hard the holidays can be on a person.  You could be grieving a loved one, struggling financially, have physical ailments, or just be emotionally bankrupt.  It can be all a person can do just to get up in the morning and face the day, much less add the burden of cooking, shopping, decorating, etc.

So, on that note, we wanted to bring you something that would not add to your burden, but hopefully lighten it.  Marilyn Monroe was no stranger to struggle. Her childhood was anything but good.  Even as an adult, the weight of being a sex symbol, a super star if you will, was overwhelming and lonely. She often talked of being so alone even though there were hundreds of people around her every day.

However, she managed to smile through the tears. To rise above, and even give joy to others.  She was always giving y helping the underdog, attending benefits, and just giving of herself.  She was a big part of the USO tours. She attended many charity functions for children, several she supported up until her death.  She would always take time to listen to others, giving them not only empathy, but a helping hand where she could.

This is what we want to give to you!  The freedom to just be there for someone else.  Don’t just dwell on your struggles, problems, and hurdles. Reach out!  Give to others.  It doesn’t have to be money or gifts either.  Your time, your listening ear, your smile are what really matter to a hurting world.  There is no downside to giving.  As you pour yourself out to anther, you will find yourself filled with hope and healing.

Blessings,

K.R. and T.L.

P.S. Our books are on sale for the holidays!  Only .99 cents. Marilyn’s unlived story.
