My Heavy Heart


I have been away for a while, searching my soul and trying to create a different style

but I always go back to my comfort zone, so I guess this is where I belong.

friends - I have gained many- who have supported me in my hours of need

and on their strength, I do feed.

so with a heavy heart, I apologize to one and all, because at times we all do fall.

I have found that as we reach our golden years, we create so many fears

wondering if our checks will be enough when these times have gotten so tough

the younger generation is finding it hard to stay afloat - and they

don't have a raft, or boat.

what can we do? nothing! except try to give hope when there is none left to give

and show them that poetry lives.

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
