Season of Departure

Seems to be a season of departure.
Rosie,Jason, Aunt Evelyn, Aunt Corine...
And isn't it just like mother nature- moody woman- to have the season's of our lives pass so vehemently different.
They pass quickly- out the blue, a shock to the system, lighting.
They fall gracefully- a leaf from the limb, to decay, slowly on the forest floor.
A subtle ebb to the ocean tide, they recede.
Or go swiftly by, in a gush of errant wind.
Either way, our season's change.
The cycle of life will take us all and all I can say is...
I wish for you, my friend,
nice weather in passing.

Why the Blog?

Writing is something I've done all my life,however;
becoming a 'writer' is new.
I've written a novel and am working on another, while searching out agents and learning the game.
What I've posted here will vary from memoir to poem to a snippet of fiction... anything that comes to mind that I'd like to share - with you - so, let me know what you think and post a comment!

Coffee Alone

Pine soldiers diligently lining the hillside
Sainted with the kiss of white cloud
the children are busy
but who am I if I'm not forgoing my needs
for someone else
so I sip my coffee
and watch
as green men are knighted
by noble day

Poem about Poetry

No rules to follow
Only words to write
The words that carry the most of the might

Words we can relate to
connect us as we read
Reflect on our life, our death, our beliefs
True in simplicity
truth in its form
A poem tells it honestly
against the norm

Beauty found
in the placement of letters
Sounds to swim in
Words mesh together
Forming a body
beautiful, bold, better

We are walking poetry
Poems in free verse
All our souls dip
Into the ink
we immerse
