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?

Day 18, Sunday. The Bucket List – three things that you’ve achieved

People would be shell shocked to learn about me,
And all of the things that I have achieved;
Important things that make me so happy;
Without bragging or becoming too sappy,

I managed to raise four healthy kids,
Respectful and honest in what they did,
All grown up now they have left the nest,
Motherhood to me was a mighty test,

I managed to get through my wild teen years,
I learned my lessons and shed some tears,
Did some wild things back in the day,
But here I am standing and doing okay,

And lastly I managed to get a degree,
to better myself because that's just me,
It was hard work and took a long time,
But now look at me I am doing just fine,

There are many more things that I could say,
I am proud of myself in a brand new way,
There are things on the list I still want to do,
But alas the list is almost empty there are so few.
