Go On

Great Grandmother by SFC Lance Widner (Awarded 1 st Place)
Great Grandmother by SFC Lance Widner (Awarded 1 st Place)

Cracked desert skin

Trapping time’s wisdom

Souls of the ancestors

Contained within

Bringing all she has

To this tender seedling

Witnessing as life begins

Timeless love not changed by death

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 to spoof “Grandma got run over by a reindeer.” I’ve always hated that song probably because I heard it after losing my grandma; so grandma’s going for a ride with Santa and there’ll be none of this running over business!

  1. thanks for sharing your wonderful response Carol 🙂

    your poem is so elegantly written – simple lines but words that resonate far beyond the ordinary … offering a very timeless and wise understanding … the entire piece works so perfectly … but I have to admit – what an amazing perspective this:
    Cracked desert skin
    Trapping time’s wisdom
    Souls of the ancestors
    Contained within

    Brilliant!

    Cheers ~ Pat
