She mostly sits on the outside looking
into the worlds around her.  Day by day
gazing into strong hearts interlocking
with others, bonding in the friendly way.
Her rationale, by and large is to cope
with life as a mom, with a two year old
and the love of a husband giving hope
that neither will be left out in the cold.

She is assured by his drive and his verve.
He - - in return lets her live her own life.
Sometimes her other self loses her nerve:
she revives, being mom, poet and wife

She offers a sonnet for sweet respite,
for life, being young, and living outright

    Hi Charles. I sent you a soup mail, a request for help. No rush! Methinks you will be quite busy with a new fan base, soon... :D

    PS--- I never did receive that soupmail. Odd. A captcha glitch? Time-out? I double checked, again...

    Oh, poets! We see so much & say so much! I'm so touched by your thoughtfulness and the gift! I guess I should be soupmailing you, but hey, :D , I'm outright... now to temper some of my habits! LOL. My girl is the me I was, not that long ago, and she raged at me yesterday. After a time out, tears, hysteria, she then comes to my lap & says, "I'm sorry I got so angry. I couldn't stop the words." she already sees herself. I checked my S.M. Nothing there yet. I'll float today! Thank you, Chum. Hugs..
