I’m Back

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything. But I have been writing. I have finally organized my poetry with pictures into book form and I wrote one poem every day in February.  I’ll start posting those regularly.

Here’s one:

Marking Time

The first of the month

A little new beginning

Resolutions to keep

And promises to make

Time goes marching on

Unseen and unnoticed

Without some markers

Feasts, remembrances

And cyclic songs to mark

Time’s passage.

Crawling first, then running

Like children embarking

On their journey through life

My time,

My hours, minutes, seconds

Impel my scattered heart

To stop and look and listen

Before my time is gone.

About dmdubay

Since retiring from Northwest Airlines and moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have more time to devote to writing. My first novel, "Tales of Two Sisters" was published over a year ago. I have been writing poetry for a long time and am attempting to collate my poetry into a short book, with pictures. A sequel to "Tales of Two Sisters" should be getting closer to completion soon. Gardening and tending the vineyard take a lot of time in the summer. Even though I love the outdoors, these activities do cut down on my writing. So I appreciate that wintertime allows me time to write. Writing, for me, is what brings things into focus and helps me to make sense of the things that life brings. It is a gift to me and I hope that it will be to you also.
