Country road
Country road

Sorrow-laden rutted roads

Lined with too many memories

No escaping what has been

Far too many heavy loads


Seeking the sweet release

Tender shoots of new growth

Overshadowed by the weeds

Hoping to find some kind of peace


As it winds along it’s set path

Not really knowing what is next

Must take risks and let all go

Maybe someday I will laugh

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.
