Late Update

I cannot find any haiku to post, but am sure there are some somewhere on the computer. I am still searching.


I added some stuff to my profile. I thought I would be a little more open here, not that I have not been in the past.


I thought if Red Kitten on Abnormally Normal People could post about her search for "the right one" that maybe I could do the same. I opened up my account on one of the search services tonight and wish I could edit more of it.


I don’t have an exceptionally witty ad to post, but maybe someone will talk to me eventually.


I forgot to tell you about my adventures in the rain yesterday. I looked at my leg in the shower and have an big black bruise on my knee and it reminded me. I was coming up the steps into the house and fell up them. Everything in my hands went flying. It was a mess and hurt too.


Some more poems:


What is Real


Some days the wishes

Seem dreams we never

Realize in our day to day,

But that is not what

Our souls have to say;

We are winners in reality.

Why We Die


Long ago when time began

There came along the race of man…

The first one having done

All that he could finally do

Grew somewhat tired and bored

Realizing nothing more for him

Remained within scope of earthly planes.

So he chose to go back

To the source from whence he came

Others found his body but not his self,

Then after some long discussion

All decided they too must someday go

To see where their friend had gone

But not all at once, just along and along

And ever since people have followed.

Finger Plays


Fingers lightly skim surface

Of exposed arm just enough

To send shivering delight

To sensation starved mind.


Words tumbling from loosed tongue

Cease because distraction halts

Train of winsome thought beyond

Ecstasy of tender touch.


Long remembered feelings

Come fully realized to fore

Heart speeding happily beats

In tempo of our own love.

    Stephen, I always seem to have the problem of falling up stairs not down them. I am lucky I was able to stop my face from hitting the porch. I am glad you like my poetry. Darn it I want to write some new stuff though.Meaiko, I check in on you pretty often. Sorry you had funerals to attend. Cool that you are writing a book. I will have to check out your art work.Smiles,Jo Ann
