Dark. Light. Medium. Triangles, circles, squares Blend together to make my quilt. A pattern emerges from my many fabrics— A pattern different from the one I imagined When I planned my quilt. Like my quilt, My life Changes patterns as I grow. Moving from small town To big city, To small town, To bigger city, I change. My quilt is the sum of many pieces, My life of many parts. Life’s plans, Heart’s woes, Experiences Made me.
I'm frittering away eternity And I cannot say why. I'm sitting eating strawberries And making pumpkin pie I think that I should make a plan.. Make earth a better place. What other dreams can I fulfill? Besides feeding my face?
One, Two, Dirt on my shoe-- Three, Four, My thumbs are sore
Five, Six Pull up dead sticks— Seven, Eight Repaint the gate— Nine, Ten— It’s Spring again
Somewhere out in the Cosmos Is someone's mother Floating Pondering Wondering How's the new program going? How did your day go? Frightening? Exciting? Enticing? How many children came? Did they enjoy the game? Boring? Exploring? Imploring? I feel I'm out of touch My poetry's not much Needs working Knee jerking Teacher lurking
Finding Joy Looking Through my Window
I use to be An independent woman. I could drive to the store Or go shopping in another town. I could walk through the hills, Or sit in my garden, pulling weeds. The whole neighborhood seemed to walk by In the evenings, laughing, chatting, waving hello.
I live in the city now. I’m afraid to drive. Familiar places are hard to find, Too far to go. Down long empty halls, Life happens behind closed doors. Walking down the stairs with fire alarms Blaring Give a chance to say hello to strangers.
I planted flowers. I have sixty two boxes on my terrace. I can still grow weeds to pull. I ask strangers for ten random words To write poetry . I sit on the plaza with a book and discuss Favorite authors with other readers. I watch children laughing.
I sit in my room Looking out my window. The cats and I watch the birds strutting Along the terrace, eating my tomatoes. I watch the construction workers building; Laying bricks and setting beams, I am reinventing me. I am an Independent woman
I am a retired old woman trying to learn new things. I've decided that since my children are grown I would start some new adventures in life. So I moved across the country to a big city.
I'm blogging in hopes that someone will read and enjoy my writings. Next I'll get out the old paintbrush!
