Chapters of Life

"Life seems to be a never-ending series of survivals, doesn't it?" _Carroll Baker, B 1931, Actress and Writer _____________________
My life seems to be like pages in a book, when I finish one chapter another begins, sadly, not each chapter has a happy ending, but some parts are quite happy and also funny, I was a goofy kid, I recall my grandpa would laugh, at my red wagon used to collect my forest treasures, well, he was the one that made it for me for that purpose, and I recall sitting in dad's workshop on his bench helping him, well, not exactly helping but asking him a zillion little girl questions, but he did not mind and would kiss me on the head and smile laughing, see, its not all bad, there is a lot of happiness woven into the deep sadness, it all depends on what pages- I choose to recall from the chapters of my life. ____________________________ June 13, 2020 Poetry/Verse/Chapters of Life Copyright Protected, ID 20-1260-135-03 All Rights Reserved, 2020, Constance La Franc Submitted to the Standard contest, Brian's Select F sponsor ,Brian Strand Third Place
