100_2083"With words of beauty,

100_2083as I begin this task I cry,


100_2083For many reasons I know not why

100_2083I feel this need to be pithy

100_2083knowing it is my duty

100_2083to give thoughts that are frail and shy

100_2083New wings to travel and explore


100_2083and gently open each closed door
for it is better to try
to write than not at all
and answer ones inner call
to be free to fly"

Karen, this is so thought-provoking. I know I will be pondering these words. I think we could each use these words to describe some of our feelings and our journeys through life. Just lovely.
