From time to time, I am inspired to write a poem.  This is one of those times!


Weathered barns in distant places
Sun-kissed fields and open spaces
Tidy gardens weeded and hoed
Little white chapel by the road
Remembered faces, smiling and kind
Childhood lessons come to mind

Now, jet flights and concrete jungles
Internet and traffic tangles
Cacophony of sounds assault my ears
Terrorist threats to whet my fears
Drive-by shootings, prophets of doom
Everywhere, it seems, there’s gloom.

I wish we could bottle those carefree days
Of loving kindness and simple ways
And when we’re burdened and out of cope
We could open the bottle and sip some hope.

Digital Whisper - Hat

I'm told there are faerie pools in the deep forest, and, if you hide in the bushes and keep very quiet, you may see the faeries at play.   Background is a blend of 3 wallpapers, the faerie on the right is credit to Lorie Davison at SBG, the one on the left to Graphics Fairy.    Thanks for visiting!
