Penned In…..

This page will (soon!) contain pieces I’ve written. I lean toward poetry, songs, and short stories.

Welcome, welcome,

Come on in and find,

the drippings and juices

that have leaked from my mind.

Grandma Ruth
You’ve been gone for ten years now
And I still cannot quite fathom how
the world still turns without you in it
’cause that day the earth tipped off its axis-just a bit.
Not a lot, I suppose most people didn’t notice
But, for me, some things are a little duller and out of focus.
Christmas doesn’t shine quite so bright
I mean, who could forget your parties on Christmas Eve night?
You were the toast of the town-no, the country-the world
You were bigger than life for this little girl
You were an adventuresome broad; brazen and brash
A world class lady with an unmistakable laugh
I wish you were here to meet my son
I think you and he would have loads of fun
You showed me a world full of possibilities
and expanded my world on your Grand Adventure with me
My childhood is painted in hues brighter by a shade or two
Because I loved you and you loved me,too.
