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?

ALOHA


Day 3: A Treasured Memory

Opening my eyes I hear the waves calling,
The sun is out shining so why am I stalling?
Those waves in that ocean are rolling on in,
And the sun that is shining calls to my skin,

The white sandy beaches whisper my name,
Life as I know it will never be the same,
The water it shimmers a blue almost green,
A more beautiful sight I have never seen,

The surfers are out there riding their boards,
Making an effort to smile for the hoards,
That have come to see them ride that ride,
Hoping they won’t be rolling out with the tide,

Everyone is quite happy and friendly and different,
They are yelling and cheering at the surfer in the distance,
And the palm trees swing in perfect harmony,
It’s a beautiful thing waking up in Hawaii.
