at that time I didn’t know
how fortunate I really was…34 years ago.

Watching his manner, his patience, his kindness, 
his calmness…his overall approach
I quickly learned this man…was much more than just a...Read More

Premium Member Oodles of Childhood Memories
Picking berries on grandpa’s farm;
watching him milk cows in the barn.
Getting chased once by swarms of bees.
Oodles of childhood memories.

Books that I read with so much to gain.
Walking down that long country lane;
Hiding behind and climbing up trees.
Oodles of childhood...Read More

Premium Member Summer

For children, summer is swing sets and slides,
ice cream or snow cones, carnival rides,
the school bell’s last ring as kids flee the school,
hot dogs at ball games and days at the pool.

It’s pitching a tent and eating s’mores,
then down at...Read More

3 school sports I play
I can't do anything but pray 
I cheer, play volleyball and softball
Sometimes I feel like people want to brawl

Cheer is pain and pressure 
It really puts me in great displeasure
We're loud , proud, and sharp
We cheer...Read More

My throat feels scratchy
I'm irritable and edgy

I'm turning down the intensity

Throw it, roll it,
  Bounce it, pass it
Dribble it, bobble it
  Kick it, toss it, miss it

Pitch it, hurl it
  Heave it, sling it
Fastball, slider
  Sinker, knuckler, curve

Underhand, sidearm
  Overhand, 3/4 arm
Whiffle ball, tennis ball

But I started running up and down on the basketball court

And join the boys on the court

In sixth grade we discovered our love of volleyball together.  
She was the setter, I was the hitter. 
The perfect pair.

Premium Member From the pen of an ex-Bore
Recently, when I was bored, 
I meditated upon boredom,
Over a cup of tea.
And three instances crossed my mind.

In the classroom:
Once, as a student, I was bored 
And dozed off;
Woke up with a start
When the drone of the lecture stopped.
The lecturer...Read More

Folks in Old Coppice have been heard to say,
Sometimes a swirling evening mist comes down,
And glimpsed as in a waking dream they may
See wraith-like figures wandering on the lawn
In silent converse, they're so pale and wan,
And to a man, they've...Read More
