The idea behind this award was simply to thank the WordPress Family for taking us in and making us feel welcome when we had just started.  Shaun feels very strongly about this award,

 “This is an award for everyone who is part of the “Word Press Family” I start this award on the basis that the Word Press family has taken me in, and showed me love and a caring side only Word Press can. The way people take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition amazes me here. I know I have been given many awards, but I wanted to leave my own legacy on here by creating my own award, as many have done before. This represents “Family” we never meet, but are there for us as family.

I thank Karen for thinking of me, well actually thinking of me twice, I am smiling at the thought. But I also want to apologize for the delay of this response. I had never forgotten it, just my mind was not in the right place to do any posting of any any sorts. Still not 100% in the saddle. But am now trying to pull through it. That is another story, and not really for public posting. But who knows, I might.

I digress, in true Cobbies69 style I offer this Award to any who wish it, help yourself, my only ask is that you like and leave a short comment of sorts saying this. Please enjoy, Thank you.

On the Edge?

Daylight  19th August 2013.

Daily Prompt: On the Edge

My excuse to do a post of this nature hope you enjoy.

Moonlight Stars and Lost.

Every night and day that passes,

Staring into space, looking beyond.

One, might say that rose tinted glasses,

Pain and hurt yes I am growing very fond.

Our sun is now getting higher in space,

Like each day it will fade to be reborn.

The moonlit night will show her face,

Sky, shadows and stars it will adorn.

Our wonder words float high and speak,

Seeking their star, to engrave ones love.

Open mind and heart, strong no longer weak.

A drifting cloud, a passing thought,

Words spoken, in my head voices shout.

Dreams and truth are forever sought,

Is this what love is all about?

Sadness these days scream at me,

Aching inside, yearning will not stop.

The point of no return, must never be,

Always inside, passing, always passing.

Answer- Richard Branson, or any other rich and wealthy person, I could see what he does and then I would learn how to siphon a million pounds from his many bank accounts and then have a happy life after, and then my unpublished dream would come true and as for Eric Clapton, I might let him accompany me on stage.
