To be blessed being raised in the Florida keys, where sun rises and sunsets calmed ones soul... feeling the heat and the taste of salt on your skin, the coolness of the water deep below, riding a dolphins tail, seeking out simple treasures of sea shells and drift wood and pretending to be a mermaid swimming with underwater creatures around the pink coral reefs. Wild islands not yet congested by humans, a place not part of the world today. Still, I have special places not shared. more »

Best Poem of Joy Powell

I Once Thought

I must give up on life
And turn into a stone
The desert wind quite suited me
No heart, no mind-just bone
I thought it would be dumb to try
To want something again
Wanting turns to need, and then need
Transmogrifies to pain
I laughed at people still in love
Who trusted someone’s world
To make my happiness depend
O faith seemed quite absurd
I lay alone and wonder-struck
Sleepless in my bed
Still numb, still dumb, still cold as ice, ice cold
Not knowing I was dead
And then you came and shone upon
My meadow full of snow
And saw the flowers ...
