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 9 - A regret

Good Morning and Happy Friday!

Today's topic is a regret and while I have quite a few personal regrets I would have to say that the biggest regret in my life is not taking the time to travel when I was younger.  I would have loved to spend some time travelling around the world and getting to know the different cultures.  I would have loved being a travelling hobo when I was younger and getting to see the entire world in a different light.  I believe that instead of pleasing everybody else I should have pleased myself first and not cared so much what everybody else thought.  I still have a lifelong dream of visiting Europe.  I will realize that dream sooner or later and I hope it is sooner as I am getting older now and want to see Europe while I am still in some kind of physical shape to enjoy the ride!  To immerse myself in the history that is all around Europe will be a life long dream realized.

If I had the opportunity I would fly into London and then just take the train wherever I needed to go.  It would have to be an extended vacation for about a month!  There is so much I want to see and do in Europe it would take me a month to be able to do it all!

So there it is in black and white my biggest regret!  Have a wonderful Friday and until tomorrow......

The day she steps up and takes that flight,
Her dreams are realized and everything's right,
She waited a lifetime for this dream to come true,
And here it is at last she has earned her due,

Where she starts has a big clock tower,
And then to a world where tulips flower,
And lets not forget to see the Colliseum,
Or the chance to see a Holocaust Museum,

Her dreams are big and she plans to outdo them,
With the sights she will see next to him,
That special person beside her makes it a reality,
Her passport in hand a lesson in frugality,

She is shaking as she boards the plane,
Excitement makes her feel like she is going insane,
The whole world at her feet for a short little time,
Makes her life so worth living a dream so sublime.
