Amaryllis

Amaryllis. Thanks Annet and dollarphotoclub.
Amaryllis.
Thanks Annet and dollarphotoclub.

Slowly laboriously to the light reaching

So many lessons that you are teaching

Time is unimportant as you stand stalwartly

Ready to burst forth in your red star glory

Offering hope and steadfast dreams

A beautiful vanguard of patient themes

When will the star be finally revealed

Winter is interrupted and glowingly lightened

Your secret is safe in the summer’s climes

During which you must craft your rhymes

Welcome dear Amaryllis!

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.
