Standing upon the mountain top
the world at my feet
watching the eagles soar above
while the wind plays catch with me.
I see the past
when times were easier?
No not easier
all times are hard
but simpler.
We did not worry about ice caps melting
deforestation
legalization of hunting endangered animals
our worries were small compared to today.
It vexes me
it should vex you too
that we are killing our planet
our very lives
with poor choices
and the wants of a few
superceding those many
who make smart choices
for the care of our world.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
