When I was a little girl, my parents discussed
Moving to the future home.
Now that I am an adult, this phrase
Comes back to me in my mind.
The concept of future home implied to me
That we would be moving to another place.
How appropriate this future home memory
Depicts my every-changing life.

Despre autor

I am a complex woman who lives a very simple way of life, with a positive attitude and a will to live in the face of adversity. This book is born out of my human struggles with growing and adapting to everyday challenges in life. My approach to life can be described as a chameleon that faces life's challenges and blends in with flexibility and humor. I refuse to bow to defeat and accept my loss as it comes. I can say that I take the "lemons in my life and make lemonade." My writing of poetry has been a wonderful blessing and gift to me from God. It has helped me to face difficult situations and come out victorious with my true self intact. This book represents to the world my small contribution to the wisdom that living a wonderful life has given to me. It has been a precious journey and I have loved every lesson I have learned. This book is my legacy and I leave these words for all to read and enjoy. I am originally from North Carolina but I moved to Tacoma, Washington to be near my daughter and grandchildren in July, 2010. I am now retired from a career in nursing of 42 years which I enjoyed and loved. I hope to write more poems because words from the heart and soul are precious to me and to others who may need to hear them. I have been divorced for 10 years and I have the wonderful blessing to take care of my two beautiful grandchildren and write my poetry. I am thankful and at peace with myself and long to give back to the world with my talents, money, acts of service and my words.

 Piney Woods Memories

The roots of my raising run deep.

Piney Woods memories I keep

Close to my heart and deep in my soul,

The memories are precious, better than gold.

A little girl of five, so scrawny and thin.

Not knowing what was ahead or around the bend.

I am so glad that I lived close to the earth,

My father, a farmer, crops grown in dirt.

A happy childhood playing Indians and cowboys

With my two brothers, oh what great joy.

There is no life better than living on a farm,

God kept us safe and protected from harm.

The sweet smell of honeysuckles in fresh air,

Tromping through the woods without a care.

I have come far from my Piney Woods days,

But deep in my being, the memories stay.

The one wish I have is to share the verse

Of "Piney
