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:

Happy reading and write on!

David's Farewell

Walking along the clouded path,
Following the scent of flowers;
Listening to rolling waters,
Rushing crystal clear down the stream-
Tumbling over rocks in a dream.

Hiking, your happy smile flashes,
You laugh, we talk of many things.
Our children, our life and our love -
Strolling along the path, my thoughts
Tumbling over rocks in a dream.

Wearing your khaki shorts, but your
Standard buttoned shirt now a black
Short-sleeved tee with a high crew neck.
I remember this struck me odd,
Tumbling over rocks in a dream.

A forest devoid of color,
Black shale path underneath our feet
I spot brown boulders, a lit path
Leading toward rushing water
Tumbling over rocks in a dream

As I reached the worn path’s entrance
With bright blooming flowers, I crouched,
Face upturned, smiling to my love-
You disappeared, vanished at night,
Tumbling over rocks in a dream.

The path to pure running water
Spilled into dissolute blackness.
Only love's flower vibrant show
Remained by the path to the stream,
Tumbling over rocks in a dream.
