Birthday Month
Here are some random photos I picked
From my collection that makes me think
The smiles and laughs shared
With the people who care

I share my birthday month with some loved ones
Some close, some far
With distance or heart
In my thoughts they are present
Sometimes that's all that matter
The experience, tastes, and feelings matter too
Simple things like easter bombs "cocoa"
A manicure with massage
And more sweet happy birthday cakes
A workout in different virtual destinations
I cannot go there for real but virtually I can
New Zealand, Spain, the Pacific Islands
All in one day
Imagined or virtual
They can bring joy

Ten Things of Thankful


  1. Great thankful poem, Carin! Happy birthday to all! Hoping there was a separate cake for each, because, you know, birthday cake!

Easter 2021

It's that season again when the breeze is warm enough To go out in nature And the hike is not so rough The ground is dry enough The rock's not so slippery As we climbed the trails above Not so muddy but rocky There's not much greenery But a hint of good scenery With young growth below, yet premature Give a hope that reassures Then Easter Day we were looking forward to Came by and flew through A few weeks of preparation With our three generations Putting up decorations Getting gifts all ready Making food for everybody Some are healthy, some . . . just yummy The egg hunting that used to be for our children Some many years ago  are now enjoyed by our grandkids Who reminds us of those early years The happy birthday days of festivities The joy from those activities Makes me grateful for simple things  That has not changed Spending time, playing, and eating together Can bring joy altogether

Six Sentence Story: Green Coat

He tore my green, soft, favorite coat, the one I wore so much. I felt I was not the one he wanted me to be, not anymore.  All good things must come to an end, or should it be just the bad? Clutching my torn coat and shutting the door in front of him, tears shed from my burning eyes. I said goodbye. It is his loss, not mine.
