Biography of Barbara Haskell
I'm 55 years old and my spirit finds this incredible! My spirit yearns to do much, but this body won't cooperate. I'm disabled due to chronic pain from a back injury and a previously fractured neck. I have a plate in my neck with 4 screws, but I don't set off airport alarms. I home school my 15 yr. old grandson and love to read and write. I've used my writing to help me cope with my life changes due to the injuries. I hope my poetry touches you in some way.

We took our first breath's of life
within minutes of each other,
as in poems that describe the yearly seasons.
Poems can show the love for mother and father
and vent feelings against the boyfriend of your grandaughter.
of my hands,
digging in the soft earth,
because of my being unable to help my family.
No one can count on me, including myself.
When pain came into my life,
can conjure up memories of you.
Everything about you, before I could become your wife
and I'll remember them all the rest of my life.
In A Loved One's Face
We hurry and we scurry,
stressing other's and ourselves,
speeding through life,
as if it were a race,
never taking time to see God,
in a loved one's face.
