My Dear WordPress Friends,
If my absence of writing and visiting you has been noticed, it is because my Family and I have been enjoying an amazingly hot summer here in Switzerland with temps that had held the 100 degree mark for almost 5 ongoing weeks. This was done without air conditioning which made it a challenge as well. A big challenge some days 🙂
I hope you are all too, making the best of this wonderful season and are working less, enjoying some shade with a cool drink or best yet, have your toes in the sand!
I look very much forward to coming back and catching up with all of you and reading how this time has inspired you.
Much love to those close and far away,
Thank you for the award,” My Sisters”!!!!
The Candid Spot, Miriam, for her entertaining and informative blog about sexuality that men should peek into as well!!!!!!!
To Mommy and her blog of addiction and Motherhood (4 boys!!!)
To Ann and her wonderful Art work and Mommy life stories for the versatile blogger award, I thank you
Lena, You dear, young, wonderful Poet and friend…..Thank you for this,
And last but not least, my Poets Corner talent and friend Jeremy, who inspires me equally…
I thank you all and everyone else who takes the time to stop in and continue to support my blog.
Well wishes….lots of LOVE
This is my first Duet composed via email with the lovely blogger and Friend Easter Ellen. Duets are a challenge to bring the individual poetic form and thoughts of each poet together and when it works, it can collide seamlessly. As writers we work solo, but to welcome another into our mind and collaborate, can be, as with my time with Easter, wonderful…inspiring. Alternating stanzas, the following poem is our result:
We both know sadness, tribulations few
But rejoice in the finding
Of friendship anew
We’ve found ourselves through
Each other’s hearts,
Brought together in spirit
Though oceans apart
Wings of love that disintegrate
Both that of time and land
Trials of life, bridging pain,
That, we will both withstand
Tempestuous weather, our long-known friend
Despite the elements, our hearts to lend
To surge over mountains, cast in our path
Swim through the waters of pain of our past
Rejoice in the day, the day that is new
Rejoice in the memories of what we’ve soared through
Discovered that we have kindred souls
Of paralleled lives; as our stories unfold
Thankful, so thankful, though pains had its day
A sisterhood found, beyond logic of way
As the saying goes
“Birds flock together”
This is the Friendship, of Easter and Heather
