My Grandson made a list of things for me to do over a period of time. I've done a few and I am working on the rest. I bought a bike. i am reading Harry Potter and advocating that other adults who haven't read the series, do so. On my list was that I should write a poem. So I did.I tried for Haiku, but I am not sure that I got it right. A haiku is a three line poem that does not rhyme . The first and third lines should have seven syllables and the second should have five.

Here goes.

death, expected, was quiet

accepted in grace and dignity

presence left in a cough


I have always liked Haiku. A few words tell a lot of life. I should work on writing some more. Poems, I mean.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
