Bloggers Photo

I'm a late babyboomer Canadian born in the beautiful Eastern Townships of Quebec, raised in Northern Ontario, now living in Ottawa, I'm finding out that oncoming golden years offer a very rich perspective on life. 

Please visit often my growing collection of poems and I hope you find many will resonate with you. I'd love to hear your comments.

I am a member of Haiku Canada and have had haiku published.

By the way, my avatar is an ink painting I created on rice paper years ago. The symbol means PLAY - something I have finally learn how to do in later years and poetry is definitely my favourite form of play.

P.S. My name is pronounced Lynn.

I must apologize... though many entries may have been fictitious, I felt like I was prying into personal stories !!

Thanks for participating. One entry was too long to qualify, a few were either unrelated or had serious spelling mistakes... Sorry!

Thank you, Line for second placement of my apology contest submission. I so much appreciate any contest win. My poetry is all about personal stories, no prying necessary. It was a topic that could go in so many different directions. It prompted ideas and memories, It was a good, and broad theme. Thank you.
