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 23, Friday. Spend $5


Pay it forward when you can,
Especially with only five dollars to spend,
I took pity on this family,
Donated my five to charity,
This family I met stuck at the pump,
Were down and out on their luck,
Fuel gauge on their car sitting on e,
I felt so bad for them I gave gladly,
I know that five dollars is not a lot,
But it was more than this family had got,
It got them home that donated five,
And made me feel good - I came alive,
The little things always count,
For a family full of obstacles to surmount,
I gave it gladly to pay it forward,
Now this family feels less cornered,
So lets all chip in and do our part,
And give the world a brand new start,
Its the things we do that others see,
That will let us remain wild and free,
Do not judge just give what you can,
Helping another gives us hope in man,
It also makes the world a better place to live,
So be good in your heart and for once just give.
