Smarts

Reading the news by the midnight oil

Her mind finally engaged and aware

This was her time for her own mind

~

The crinkling noise inspired reflection

Eager to learn and use her numbing mind

Reading the news by the midnight oil

~

Her days filled with service to her family

Catering to their every want and desire

Her mind finally engaged and aware

~

Mother always told her a woman’s place

But she was smart and now she knew it

This was her time for her own mind

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. we all need a little down time, and someone in charge of a household, what a full-time job!! I’d recommend some herbal tea just to make her private time sweeter. maybe hubby could even rub her feet. Great repetition.
