Fairy Tale


drifting along

dreams lost



So many times

life intervenes

choices are made…..

I cannot perceive

the path that must be followed

bringing me here.

Crossroads appearing


Left or right?

North or south?

I spin

eyes blinded



see where my finger points.


haloed in sunlight

aroma of lilacs

happiness flits by.


leading me to you

my footsteps

dancing in delight.

Moving forward

a smile upon my lips

I realize all at once


has played a part

in bringing us together.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
