Candy Crush Saga - June 19, 2014

Candy Crush Saga

I have a life long friend,
Who has meant the world to me,
We've always stayed in touch,
No matter where we'd be.

Camilla was my dorm mate,
Over fifty years ago,
In our freshman year of high school,
Which we said we hated so.

 In spite of being very strict,
With three study halls a day,
We  forged the strongest friendships,
And got in a little play.

We were together only 9th grade,
But if we were ever near,
We always saw each other,
And years seemed to disappear

During January, I visited Atlanta,
Spending five days with Camilla and Dave,
We shivered and reminisced together,
In the throes of an icy cold wave!

We had yummy venison sausage,
And martinis fit for a queen,
But she turned me into an addict,
On something totally unforseen.

Every night, she got out her computer,
And started frantically playing a game,
It's called "Candy Crush Saga," she said,
When I demanded to know the game's name.

But don't ever start, she admonished,
You will never be able to quit,
How right she was with her warning,
I am really having a fit.

I admit I am playing quite often,
And I don't find it very much fun.
No matter how fast my fingers are racing,
I can never pass twenty-one!!

Thanks a million, Camilla.

  1. Haha- I have the disease too, although the higher levels are curing me. They get boring. I'm more in love with Farm Heroes Saga.

    1. Gosh, Joan, I don't want to be tempted by anything else. I do play three word games...word trick, scrabble and words with friends and that ties up way too much time.

    You are the best. Addiction to some things is ok. Thanks for the poem and thanks for the memories.
    Come to my house anytime. I loved spending time with you.
    Let me know where you are and how your life is progressing.
    Love you a lot,

    1. All is well, Camilla. I am headed back to India for four months July 23rd. It's been fun spending six months with little Harper Ann but I need a little break from grandma duty. Wish I could get back to see you every year. I loved my Atlanta time with you and the hunter.

  3. Hello, RNSANE.

      Your works is embraced in your gentleness.
      And sweet message charms my heart.

      The prayer for all peace.
      I wish You all the best.

    Have a good day. from Japan, ruma ❀

    1. Thank you so much, Ruma. As always, your photography speaks of such beauty and makes one, for a moment, for all the trials and tribulations that seem to be constantly taking place in our world. I certainly join you in praying for peace.

  4. Well thank Goodness I don't know about it....... I don't want to be addicted!
    Chocolate is bad enough!
