Heaven Knows




She feels joy, but won't admit it.
She feels pain, and won't forget it.
But, it's alright, she has a place inside.
A special home where she can hide.
Her name is written in the stars above.
And on earth she shares her love.
She looks to heaven for hours.
For the colors in rainbows and the color of flowers.
She will go where the wind blows...
This is something no one knows.
Except for her which she hides...
In her home deep inside.
Where the wind blows is where she goes...
It's just something she undergoes...
-Ann Clemmons

Poetry is not my strong point. I'm guessing you're talking bout yourself?

Have a fabulous day Annie. Big hug to you and tons of scritches to Simon. ♥♥♥

Hey, I woke up thinking of my mother at about five this morning and wrote this down. As you can see, poetry is not my strong point either...laughing...but I liked the flower....

Anyway, no, it's about my mother. Everything I write about myself turns out humorous...My mother and I are alike in many ways, but she is incredibly shy, and well, you know I'm not. -Smile-


You have a fabulous day too!

And close guess- :)

"Big hug" back to you and I will send Simon his scritches.

Sandee, I wanted to tell you that Paul left a comment on Tuesday's Question below asking how to do Tuesday's Question. I hope he comes back and reads my answer. If not, I will go to Cruisin Paul. But, isn't that great?

I know he is a friend of yours.

Hugs again,

I loved your poem Ann. I love poetry and I like to at times make up my own poems. It relaxes me.

Have a great Saturday my new friend. See ya.

Thank you, Paul.

I love to write poetry too, but most of the time I'm afraid to post it, -Even though I write Children's books.- so I really appreciate your comment.

I was afraid it was awful, so it means a lot. I would love to read some of your poems.

I'm sorry for my belated reply. I hope you had a nice Saturday and week-end.

Now, have a great Monday! By the way, I am pre-posting Tuesday's Question right now, and I will be by Cruisin Paul tomorrow afternoon to answer it.

Cheers and thanks again!

Motherhood- Courage


Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons

Words-

Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination


Written for Ann

Most of the worlds' great things were born of adversity and hardship; because these roadblocks encourage us to dream, imagine and believe.- Ann Clemmons

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'


F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"

Mark Twain
