A summer of highs and lows,
some of which were appreciated,
some that were dreadful,
better to be forgotten,
but they will not just go away,
tears cannot wash them away,
add the worse to the heartaches we call life
and try to not forget the pleasurable ones,
the great grand children,
their curiosity, their innocence,
their energy, their unconditional love.


remembering one
choices hard to understand
disease, not a choice


flowers bloom
nature performs wonders
cycle of living, dying

Changes (a free verse to relieve the random thoughts cluttering my head)

what was normal has become a departure,

what was comfortable developed a deviation,

was it good or bad to change, a dispute,

was it our will to create a divergence,

or was it the will of a Higher Power,

our refusal to accept only brings conflict.
