A dark woodland

Sounds of forest dwellers

Fireflies light the night

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. Love it! Thank you for sharing image and words so perfectly united…Saw a firefly just the other day; brought back childhood memories of trying to jar their light without permanently putting their lights out..Never worked. What a beautiful gift of nature they are. Beautiful haiku! Thank you!

  2. Hi Carol, I hope you are well – lovely writing as always. I’m having a bit of difficulty figuring out how to navigate your new layout (i.e. where your about me page is found so I can leave you comments not referring to an actual post of yours – but I’m working on it … it’s been slow going returning to WP, but soon come! With that said, I was wondering if you’re still following me, I hope you are, you were/are a dear heart and beautifully creative spirit connection that I enjoy connecting with very much.

    1. I am not sure. I went to visit a post of yours and it informed me that you had made your blog password protected and private. I don’t know. I’ll follow the link and see where I end up. Lovely to see you again!


  3. the fireflies in the photo remind me of elemental spirits you might see in a fantasy animation, or like the opening montage of the movie contact, resolving down to Ellie using her ham radio to contact other ham operators. the verses — mysterious, and oooooooooooooohh
