My Poetry Book - Flash 55 Friday, April 30, 2010


My Poetry Book

I feel like Grandma Moses,
But, at least it’s now complete,
At 65, to get it done,
Feels like a major feat.

“Life’s Journey”, will be published,
Poetic works of mine,
You’ll see a little bit of me,
In every single line!

Never, never give up on your dreams,
No matter how impossible it seems!

  13. Congratulations on your book. And I always like the way that you can tell a direct thought with your poems. Most poems are of dreamy images, which are also good, but you can also tell it in normal everyday language that most people can relate to.
