About Me

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?

Ricki's Poem

You were a part of our lives for so many years
The time spent together cant dry our tears
we are so sad that you left us there is no doubt
we cry and we cry when we want to shout
no other dog can replace the void we feel
our love for you was strong and so very real
always ready to greet us with a bark and a smile
i dont think we will get over it not for a while
you were everything that we could ask for in a pet
you can never be replaced that's a sure bet
for now we are sad and miss you so so much
we miss your smile, your love and your touch
we come home at night and there is a deep void
we go thru the day like robots-missing ricki androids,
we know you're in heaven and that is how it has to be
but you were more than just a dog, you were OUR ricki.
