About Me

My photo

Hi and welcome to my blog.  Hopefully you have visited my blog to read some of my writing.  Nothing beats finding that perfect poem, phrase or story to explain how you are feeling.  Often times I am asked to write something through my group on Facebook entitled "Prompted".  This group will give me a picture or a phrase and I have to write something containing it.  The first prompt for which I wrote "The Flight" required three words, owl, lightning and pudding.  The second was my basis for "Wide Awake" Sometimes I just have a feeling and start writing and when this happens just let me be.  A combination of these writings are what I wish to convey to you, my reader.  I hope that my writing touches you in the same way it touches me as I write it because isn't that the purpose of a poem is to feel it?

A Job To Do

See that grass way up on that hill?
That’s a job I have to fill,
I have to cut it in blazing sun,
What a job it’s no fun,

I spy the cardinal up in that tree,
It sings to the lawnmower so free,
He gets to sing in the tree not a care,
While I sweat and I moan- it’s just not fair,

Well to get it done I must get started,
So away I go the mower has departed,
But I will be back again to spy,
Exhausted I am sure so this is goodbye
