Some Stuff About Me:

I'm a Minnesota Girl, living in the south. I tell my friends I try not to talk and think like a Yankee, but sometimes I slip up!

Poem for a Monday - National Poetry Month

I wrote this in 2008, sort of a tribute to the world-famous Cancer center, where I volunteer.



The Healing Place

Hope floats on the breeze here
But the reality is steeped in worry
A healing place gathers

Those with prayers
Those with optimism
Those who feel they cannot go on
Those who are afraid to hope
Those who will not be healed

But in the aftermath
The healing place
A way-station
on the road of life
Gives ……
exactly what you take from it.
