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 21, Wednesday. Twenty-one: photos, memories or stories from this year of your life (if you’re not yet 21, choose another age)

I remember what I did when I was 21,
Living alone was a lot of fun,
One of the best years of my life,
A newlywed then a new wife,
A husband that served in the Army,
Moved me away to Hawaii,
I didn't have to work so it was fun,
Laying around soaking up the sun,
Made great friends that I remember,
Warm all year round even December,
Not many kids my age I guess,
Can say they did the same without duress,
I was the girl that did what she wanted,
Left home and family, all alone, undaunted,
To get on with my life away from parents,
Where I could be me so transparent,
I did my thing while I was there
And lived my life without a care,
Smoking weed and partying all night,
Made life seem like it was alright,
It was the way of life that I loved the most,
Hawaii is captivating I was engrossed,
I tried my hand a little at drinking,
I did some things without thinking,
Drinking never took to me,
Nor I to it I preferred the weed,
It was a great time to be had, 
I miss it now just a tad.
I think I just miss my youth,
And there you have it just the truth.
