About This Author

Hi there!

I'm a grandmother, a nursing educator, an avid knitter and an aspiring writer. I created this page for family and friends who expressed interest in reading my writing. It is mostly poetry with a few short stories sprinkled here and there .

The poem on this page is one my Mom favored. The collectible trinket is from a needlework picture of Longfellow's home she completed. Mom loved poetry and was an avid reader. She and my brother,Rasputin , inspire me still.

I have a published form modification called the Rondel Grand Modified; it is located here:
http://www.poetrymagnumopus.com/forums/topic/2842-invented-forms-found-only-at-w...

Drop me a note by clicking on the "Contact Me" link above and let me know you stopped to visit.


Happy reading and write on!


Poetic Tides Through Time

Restrictions: None
Perpetual Motion
It’s the night before...
My life might change tomorrow,
Or not.

A job interview
A company from my past
An old job role.

But a new location
Different people
Same corporate structure?

Ten years is a long time
I don’t know if I remember
How to do the job
Or even if I have the
Energy for an eight-hour day

But time is running out
It’s now or permanent retirement
Which I fear will lead to
Perpetual sentient activity-
Nothing.

I’ll face the fear
Jump on the carousel
Hope for the best
Grab the brass ring
of Life.

Go ‘round a few times
Up and down…
Before I retire to face

Evolution eternal.
