Ancient City of Taos, New Mexico USA.

Drums beating with wind

Dry crisp air carrying sage

Hear the constant hum

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.

  2. Beautiful picture, and poem, Carol! I’ve been to Taos…amazing. Everything about NM is mystical to me, and I’ve been to many places there. 🙂 …like those words, too… I think ‘coddiwomple’ is what I do when I go into another room here in the house…I sometimes remember why I went in there. 🙂
