Poetry Pause



High upon loves’ precipice

Looking down into a crevice

Might as well go head and jump,

Cause I’m falling.


Way above all the trees

Feeling weak down in my knees

Breath coming so rapidly

Lord have mercy, pray for me

Cause I’m falling


Peering down, where is the ground?

Hope I land safe and sound

On a target way, way down

OMG, my fears abound.

Cause I’m falling.


Falling hard and falling fast

Brakes have failed, don’t wanna crash

With my heart to lead the way,

Body leaning, as I sway

Taking courage, hear me say

Look at me

I’m falling.

(cause sometimes you gotta fall in order to love)

Happy boomer gal ( read smart, feisty, quirky, adventuresome, funny, sassy woman of a certain generation) willing to share my journey and advice with anyone who would not repeat my mistakes. Happy to fully disclose the joys and pitfalls of love at any age, the desire to age well, and the joys inherent in every day. Utilizing poetry, photography, and whatever creative entity that would bring a smile to a hurting heart. Author, wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend, humanitarian, exhorter, educator, activist, student, Christ-follower, adventure seeker, pharmacist. Hoping to give all and use all I am for the good of others. Come along. The journey may be difficult, but, it will always be an interesting adventure!
