Green is green is showing thru
Leaves are leaving snow white melting too
Buds budding bringing life
Spring has sprung there is new life.

I Wonder What Was It Like

October 10, 2014

Photo by Mom and Dad

I wonder what was it like
When I was born
Did I cry right away
Or was I compelled?

Did I know what had happened
Was I frightened to be out
Of the only world I’d known
Did I even know where I was?

The answers I don’t know
No one left to tell
Gone are the memories
I may have once held.

The business of new life
Took over and I cried
Sad to be leaving
The soft, warm womb
Where my mother kept me
Safe and alive.

I may not remember
No one left to tell
But I know I was born and
With love I was held.

St. Paddy’s Day

St Paddy's Day and Snake ~ Photo by Patrice

St. Paddy’s Day
A custom from a land far away
Brought here by those coming
To make a new life in a new land
But bringing too a piece of the old homeland.

St. Paddy’s Day
Isn’t it grand to celebrate it
Across the world, across the land.
