I am Linda Bella Wassermeister, but my friends all call me Belle.
Sometimes I get bored and post poems under different names. The picture you see is probably not me, either. I change my picture often as well. Only rarely do I use my real picture, but I HAVE done it a few times!
On 8 May 2021, Poem Hunter selected my poem 'Where Will I go? ' as member poem of the day. I was using the name 'Jungle Cat' at the time.
The problem is, the poem was deactivated at the time. How in the world did they choose a poem that was deactivated? I'll never figure that out.
Since it was deactivated, nobody could read it. I reactivated it as soon as I found out that it was MPOD, but it was 48 hours before it showed up, and few people read it.
I would appreciate it if you would go and read that particular poem and leave a comment and tell me what you think. Thanks in advance!
My name is Linda Bella;
my father calls me Belle.
I used to be his little girl,
but how my size did swell!
My thyroid is all out of whack;
they've tried to regulate,
so I can blame it on hormones
and not something I ate!
I weigh about five hundred pounds
(you were afraid to ask)
but I feel good, and carry on
and don't fear any task.
My husband doesn't mind at all;
he truly is the best.
He says it really turns him on
to climb Mount Everest!
Those Twin Peaks never slow him down;
he gets right to the top
and, though this writing's been such fun,
I think it's time to stop!
Go ahead and toot your own horn. Now that the Virus is lurking, nobody else is going to!
If you ain't crazy, there's something wrong with you. (Willie Nelson)
Counsel with the Lord in all thy doings, and He will direct thee for good.
Expect nothing and you shall never be disappointed.
We don't have to be very smart to think we know everything!
People are beautiful. Black people are beautiful. Brown people are beautiful. Red people are beautiful. Yellow people are beautiful. White people are beautiful. All people are beautiful.
Today is the tomorrow we talked about yesterday.
Minutes and hours well spent are the building blocks of a life well lived.
Counting blessings is better than recounting problems.
Don't your loved ones deserve the BEST of you, not the REST of you?
I find television very educating. Every time someone turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book. ---Groucho Marx
Why not go out on a limb? Isn't that where the fruit is? --- Frank Scully
Let's agree to disagree but not be disagreeable.
Helping one person may not change the world, but it will change the world for one person.
