A Touch of Poetry

Good evening my fellow Travelers, Family and Friends! How was your Labor Day? It was way too hot to go outside except I did a little walking after the sun set in sunny, hot AZ.

Just so you know, I really am not poetic. I have only written 2 poems in my life and it was a sudden thing, both of those times where I just “waxed” poetic…LOL! and grabbed the nearest piece of paper and started writing…

Now this one is very fitting I think to the early Fall that may or may not be creeping in to the North Central part of the country, but I will just share it with you because it seems to fit right now….here goes: ( by the way, I was living in South Dakota)

It’s May, ok? Time to put the boots away! I have found and I know it’s soundthat the weather, it may go round and round. First it’s Spring, then it’s Winter-First it rains, then it snows; only those in the Hills really know

One day you’re shoveling snow, next day; who knows???

Thought I’d put my coat away-just to take it out the very next day! I was never warned ya know… just how far the weather would go–Coming from the Valley of the Sun, who would think I could have such fun!

The nicest people you could ever meet are here at the Lab and on the street… What a wonderful place, I’m glad I came; my life will never be the same!

Ta da!!!

I wrote this in May 2010 and forgot I even had it but found it in my boxes which seem to be loaded with some treasures that I can share with you! Hope you enjoyed that little bit.

Here’s another pic to take ya’ll on out till next time…..

In the next 20 years I believe I will be living the best years of my life. Learning to Blog is going to be part of that. My friends and family tell me I should, so I will and have fun doing so! I'm an "eternal" 70 something. I have 2 grown Daughters, 3 Grandchildren; 2 girls and a boy, and 3 Great-grandchildren. I live in AZ. I continue to grow and learn and never stop; especially about knowing my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and living in His Kingdom. I have lots of friends, love to ride motorcycles, read and occasionally watch good movies. I like to stay active so I walk a lot and do my 10 min. exercises a day through a membership in Dr. Livingood's Crews. I have cut out tons of sugar as I learned how to eat a lot healthier; I feel great! I'm brushing up on my copywriting skills and just received my first Credential for 2022; looking forward to 2023-a NEW me!!!

  1. Awesome! I’m not a poetic either, but the Lord did give me one poem in 2011 about a rose! And one song on my fiftieth birthday! I need one of those emoji with that expression, hmmm! Thanks for sharing!
