A Rumination

A Rumination

You know you're getting old when you can reasonably come out with some version of, "Why, back in my day...." This has no particular purpose really... just an ol' geezer settin' on the front porch wool-gathering aloud. Never quite understood that one - never had much like for wool myself, bein' a Southerner an' all. Odd to think I was doing some things while a few readers here weren't born yet.

Does the term…

Goodbye Momma

Goodbye Momma

I thought of momma today. And many others I have seen and met over the years. Some very good, some very bad. Some mothers are very kind and loving, some full of hate and pain, some are there as a chair is "there", some not there at all. I know of someone whose mother put on a nice clean dress, went onto the front porch, lay down and blew her brains out. I was very fortunate. Mine was the very kind and loving sort. Momma didn't live…

Precious Hours

Precious Hours

Sometimes I wish I had never been born

Into this world of troubles and pain.

But then I wouldn't have known

The beauty of an early morn

Or the gentle caress of Summer rain.

I wouldn't have seen the grass so green

Or the azure blue of the sky.

I wouldn't have heard the songs of the birds

Or the children asking why.

Sometimes I feel so confused and lost

In a world of misery and fear.
