Hi all, as the old year is wrapping up and the new one is about to begin, I sat here this morning contemplating about life. The conclusion I have come to, with all of my 53 years experience on this old earth, is that good or bad, happy or sad, healthy or sick, life is to live. If we are not experiencing all of these things than we are not truly living but existing. Thank you all my friends.

Slice Of Life


Take a taste of a new slice of life

Carve it with an aging knife

Taste it all both sweet and sour

Sometimes feel the lack of power

You may need to add some seasoning

Perhaps temper it with reasoning

Share it often with somebody

Wash it down with water muddy

Try not to choke on the bones

Watch out for them evil gnomes

Try not to let it all turn rotten

To become just trash soon forgotten

Not perfect is the changing recipe

So be prepared with sympathy

But more important then all above

Treasure your slice with all your love

Learned a lot in this past year...some of the bad with the good...I'll still treasure it even if I chalk it up to a learning experience...and welcome the New One with bright eyes and open arms...

Thanks for a wonderful year (almost for me) of poetry!

Happiness in yours!

In weight I would not be able to walk had my heart weighed in with pounds. This is the miracle God gave us to carry the treausres of life's heart....Miracles are always abundant when God gives us power. I especially like this poem Dear Fee.
