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?

The Pianist

Day 5, Monday. Something you wish you did really well


The curtain goes up to a full house,
The crowd is as silent as a mouse,
Filled with anticipation for the show,
The pianist is famous very well known,

He begins with a melody calming and low,
The sound is pure like new fallen snow,
The crowd is entranced watching him play,
The girl in the front row waits for the day,

That she could play the piano as good as him,
She must practice and practice filled to the brim,
She must make the piano the keys to her being,
And maybe someday she will be seeing,

Herself on the stage performing for a crowd,
Being as good as this pianist for crying out loud,
Her love for the music is deep in her soul,
But alas she lacks the courage to pay the toll,

Her life continues and she grows up gets married,
Forgets of the dream that she once carried,
She wishes that one day she could play that great,
But alas for her now it’s much too late.
