Hi, Fellow poetry lovers! I officially retired from working recently, after a lifetime of hard labor, but then I found out that retirement wasn't enough to live on, so I am back at work, Part-time only! I still have enough time to do some of the things I love.
I am a member of the Mississippi Poetry Society, The National Poetry Society, The Northeast Mississippi Art Association, The Mississippi Writer's Guild, and a new group that is meeting, so new that we don't have an official name as yet, so we call ourselves Daddy's Lame Duck Poet's Society.
My main pleasure in life, however, is my three grown children and their five children. Those Grandchildren are what keep me young and looking forward!
Since coming on PH, I have learned so much and made a great group of friends worldwide! My poetry writing has seemed to improve, both from reading others work and help from others here on this site, so I love being here.
It is the fortune of poeple
that the shadows
of our futures do not
Did you forget me in the woods,
left with empties in a green trash can
with the screen on top?
A tumbleweed is
A living thing.......but,
When it dies,
Breaking free of its earth ties,
