Bloggers Photo

I know so many of you now, well not personally! For those who I am meeting for the first time, my name is Kim Rodrigues. I love to write about my family, travel, life, current events, and Christian themes. I consider my writing eclectic. I enjoy trying out the various forms, love brevity poems, and often write in free verse. Please try a sampling of my poetry. I hope you enjoy! I will try to visit your postings, as well. Happy Writing!





Busy for a bit longer!

Dear Beloved Poets,

I have been trying to comment on some poems. This season of Christmas is followed into January by two landmark celebrations so don't give up on me! The latter half of January should get better!

Hi Kim, Christmas and New Years are such busy times of the year, and everything is upset and there is so much to do, go here, go there... I am relieved it is all over until next year and I can retreat back into my apartment nest _
