Happy Birthday Poem

A birthday is a marker of time, An anniversary that is ripe, A celebration of the day you left the womb, To breathe the Breath of Life. To see, smell, touch, feel, hear, and taste, And learn about your world, And as years pass you learn some things, As the map of your life is…

Dear Dad – Happy Birthday

My dad would have been 95 tomorrow. If only he had lived to tell me, to answer my questions, especially, what is life all about? “Dad, you never answered me when I asked about life, when I was 7. Thankfully, I am finding out to some extent now. Better late than never. Maybe you didn’t…

Poem – Chemo At The End

Song – Anniversary Without – Lyrics

  What do you want someone to say to you, what do I want someone to say to me, what do I say to someone, who spouse has died, and their anniversary date arrives? Do I say something to them, or do I ignore it like the pink elephant in the room? Lots of times…

Sunflower Satire

You may or may not recall, some time ago I wrote a piece about the sunflowers. I will summarize. Once upon a time, the sunflowers got together, Marched on Washington, D.C. and marched right into Trump’s office. When they left, tens of thousands of them, Trump lay lifeless on the floor, a silly inane Trump…
