Cracked Lynn Greyling
Lynn Greyling

Cra-a-ck was all she could hear

Not knowing what was broken

The cat was hiding under the couch in fear

Looking around she saw with her face oaken

That her hated golden mirror was all clear

It was her Cadillac’s window that was overtaken

She was certainly not in good cheer

Her heart cr_a-acked

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. I had a car door busted once. I was parked in the city and the stationary window was broken in order to attempt to get to an old tape recorder. Such a pain…

    Another weird thing to happen is when your rear view mirror falls off! That’s happened to me a couple of times – Luckily not broken so all I had to do was get the glue kit and put it back on.
