now on to my contribution......
~~~~~Sadness takes me down a road; I cannot remember how I got there.
There is nothing special to see, this road I am on.
Pebbles and dirt so dry, it is parched and void of life and joy.
No stately trees swaying to the earth’s sweet symphony.
No birds chirping in harmony that I might recognize their glee.
No flowers stretching their stems to the sky, bursting forth with joy.
No green grass twirling with the wind, twirling and twirling ever gracefully twirling.
No breeze to touch my face, to kiss me with its coolness.
No sweetness to breathe in, that I may sample life’s perfume.
How do I get off this road, the road of unknown?
Do I go back the way I came, down this same desolate path I have already been down?
Do I have to travel through this void where I become lost again?
How do I get back to the light and joy?
Do I turn somewhere?
Or does it come back to me in time?
I can’t remember.

I write this because my dear old friend is starting to slip away from me. I called her with the annual Easter dinner invitation and she abruptly informed me that she never comes to my house for Easter dinner.......the picture of her sitting in the rocking chair on my front porch with all my grandsons standing around her with their smiles and Easter baskets slips down from my hand. I am sad.~Ames
