Approaching the once traveled road

She feels a strong sense of heaviness

What will she feel when she sees the abode

 A little sad as her senses are sharp with awareness

Look! Over there. That used to be Karen’s house

The creek where they captured tad poles and pebbles

The road on which she walked to school feeling so rebellious

Now we’re really getting close to number ten-zero doubled

She sees her home of so long ago up on the hill

The memories cascade upon her lonesome mind

Her father had left an absence with nothing to fill

To her he was the standard of truth and was so kind

In front of the house she stops and sits as if waiting

To hear his voice bellowing for her to do her chores

The last year of his life they clashed guilt still innundating

Father is still near her and will be forever more.

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. This is the first time you’ve literally brought tears to my eyes. You always touch my heart or spirit, but this time both came out in liquid form from my eyes. ❤ I'm not going to call it the usual beautiful, touching, wonderful, warming, etc., writing – all I'm going to say is "I get it." ❤
