When I write, I write about what I know, what I have seen, people I have met along the way, life in general, and so much more. Blue is one of those about people I have met along the way.
Little girl dressed in blue
wandering down the hall
people sitting in every room
but no one she could call
Bare feet and tangled hair
eyes with a vacant stare
looking straight ahead she walked
seems there was no one to care
Rag doll held by one tiny foot
making trails on the dusty floor
little girl stumbled down the hall
looking for that one lone door
twas no Alice in the looking glass
No Cinderella going to the ball
was only a wooden door she had
and no one else to call
Little black bird with circle of blue
sitting on the snowy cold wall
peering through the glass it looked
listening for someone to call.
Fly, fly away little bird
escape this dark, cold place
you can do it little bird with blue
Fly to a brand new place
Little old lady with silver blue hair
walks with a shuffling gait
Little rag doll sits on a shelf
memories of another date
Just to let you all know I am taking a short sabbatical due to health reasons. I am having severe spinal issues and leg issues and torn rotator cuff issues which have sidelined me.
I ask you please to not give up on me or unsubscribe as I will be back soon. It is just hard for me to think with this much pain. I have had injections into the shoulder joint to try to help and had OMT’s performed on me to try to help.
Sometimes life throws us curve balls and seems to stop us in our tracks but those that have followed me for very long know this about me:

I thank you all who read my blog for you lift my heart and give me purpose. And I thank all of you who have bought my Poetry book off Amazon. That was a major accomplishment for me as was getting 1000 plus subscribers. Thank you from my heart. Please do not give up on me so that I do not give up on me.
My Poetry Book
And a very special thank you to those of you who have bought my book and written reviews on it. You have touched my heart deeply and have inspired me to keep going and do the work I believe God has laid out for me. Love you all.
You all will have to forgive me if I post the link to my Poetry book occasionally as when I post on here, it goes on all my media sites to help my book sell. One of the downsides of self-publishing. It is amazing how some friends and family can disappoint you when it comes to buying your creation but they will. So, I am posting to the world 🙂 Thank you to those who have bought my book already. It means the world to me.
Here is the link:
I hope that if you take the time to buy a copy that you will leave a review for me. Thanks so much.
Love Never Dies
Mountains to climb and rivers to cross
creeks to swim and banks covered in moss
birds calling gently from tree to tree
grass as far as anyone could see
walking on grass like velvet to feet
old tree trunks making a wonderful seat
grass between teeth, wind in the hair
complexions like peaches all sweet and fair
the porch swing squeaking a musical sound
crickets singing but can’t be found
looking from under thick curly lashes
dreams that come in lightning flashes
far off in the distance a figure shows
knowing who it is before anyone knows
love never dies is what they say
It never dies but it can walk away
