Sitting Here Thinking Of…..


Sitting Here Thinking Of…..

This challenge is catching up with me.  The show doesn’t end until Wednesday, so I really don’t have as much time as I would like to participate…  Today is day 16….I will make another post today.  This is a poem that I wrote about a woman is recalling various scenes from her life as a young married.  I hope that you enjoy it.

Sometimes when I lie in the bed alone
Imagining you beside me
Like you used to be
And still catching a whiff of Paco Rabanne cologne on
Your pillow brings

And somehow I still feel you
Tugging at the quilt
Tickling my feet and telling
Me that the blueberry waffles that
You made were going fast
So it was now or never

I still remember our solitary
Away from the kids
Thinking about blessings
Never dreamt of
Just a short time ago
I see the brush on the dresser
Once so lovingly used as
You’d call me to you
To gently stroke my

You never complained about
Massaging my feet
And that twinkle in your eye promised
You knew more than one
Way to curl my toes
Now I’m alone with our
In my twilight years
But, happy
In knowing that your
strength survives in
Our grandchildren’s eyes.

    Hi Renee!

    To be honest straight off the bat, the main reason I kept reading when I stumbled across your page was the image in the masthead with the lady in the hot air balloon! What a brilliant piece of art that is to set the fun, lively tone of your words!

    I’ve read the above piece and Part 1 of your ‘Big Man on Campus’ post and I just wanted to quickly say I’m really liking your writing style and I saw you took on the 30 day Blog Challenge which demonstrates you’re the kind of writer I love to read: one that doesn’t hide away in their comfort zone.

    I look forward to reading a lot more and hopefully adding some entertaining feedback for you, Renee!
