Perfection

One’s youth is a happier

Time by far

When viewed across the

Safely intervening years

And though my hands

Could build a bridge

To take me back to fev’rish

Passions and swift tears

There is a wisdom which

Comes with age

Gleaned from battles fought

And battles won

That whispers for the heart

Alone to hear

Perfection cannot be

Improved upon

I'm either a transplanted East Coaster or a born again West Coaster. My heart kept pulling me toward Oregon, and when I followed it I found my dream, which I am living daily. My dream of becoming a writer has come true as well. I am in the company of people who speak my language, and the sense of community is healing hurts I didn't know were there. I am very grateful for my enormous good fortune.

  2. You are simply a gorgeous woman. Thank heaven for you. I have been pouring over the links you recently sent me, and chose to comment here. We rarely truly know another person’s inside motivation for organizing thoughts and feelings into words. Especially with poetry. But whatever yours were should be honored.

    Love you-

    • They say it takes one to catch one. I think you’re gorgeous, too, as well as intelligent, insightful, compassionate and loving. One of these days, when your daughters have children of their own, they will truly appreciate what a remarkable woman their mother is. I, being older and wiser, already know. Thank you for the kindness and love you have always shown to your best friend. That counts for me above all else.

      love you always,
      your west coast mom
