Picture It & Write December 20

Her boundaries were hard to set

Life had been a series of crossings

People cutting through her space

She began to see everyone as a threat


He entered her world with such finesse

Sincerity and kindness were his gifts

Falling hard for him was just too easy

Soon he was to cause her great distress


This sweetness changed much too soon

Turning to intentional daggers of hate

Became unable to please him in any way

To her soul he too became immune


Opened her eyes one bright day

Realized that the power lay within

Arising to the needed changes

Strong boundaries she did lay

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 provide those tests for one another so to eventually strengthen us. we learn and thus grow closer to source, if we have a mind to. boundaries are so important. “good fences make good neighbors”.
