Gypsy Child – Day 27 April PAD

Leave a comment

Gypsy Child

My life has

been a series

of travels…

adventures…

a gypsy of sorts

due to my

father’s profession

 

A new town…

a new home…

Every six months

or so

 

Attachments were

difficult due to this

rambling lifestyle

Connections either

made quickly and

just as quickly

forgotten

or…

not made at all

 

The lifestyle

shaped who I

am today…

An adult always

reluctant to commit…

to relate to anyone…

never to love

or be loved…

For fear the

past would

repeat itself

and be gone

before it could

really begin

 

Looking back…

my gypsy childhood

was my preparation…

a dress rehearsal…

for the inevitable

life of always

Being Alone…

Bloodstained Luggage – Day 26 April PAD

Leave a comment

Bloodstained Luggage

I am not one

to hobnob

with the elite

I do not

advertise those

who crossed

my path

nor critique

their perceived

greatness

Yet…

I muse over

the battered and

bloodstained

luggage that

makes me

realize memories

and zany adventures

dwindle with age

And…

the radiance in

your eyes and

shining from

your face is

all that remains

Today’s challenge was to use several of the words created to Shakespeare as the inventor … see if you can pick out the ones I used!

Hills and Heather – Day 25 April PAD

Leave a comment

Hills and Heather

My heart belongs

across the Atlantic

My desire to return

a yearning deep in

my soul

To walk the

Hills and Heather

Retracing the steps

my ancestors made

To see purple and

thistle

And…

Feel the weight

of my plaid
