Grand kids

Over the moon

Bursting with pride

As I watch my

Grand kids grow,

Learning new words

tasting new foods

Seeing new things

With wonder in their eyes,

Head on my shoulders

To be comforted

Upon my lap

To read a book,

Absolutely excited

When little arms

Give hugs so tight!

My heart is overflowing!!

Laying in a hammock

swaying to and fro,

watching the birds fly by

I believe one was a crow.

Searching for the treetops

somewhere way up high

Suddenly an airplane

Jets across the sky.

Slowly I close my eyes to

Listen to Nature’s sound,

Birds, crickets, frogs and bees

Talking all around!

I breathe in the fresh air

Hear the rustling of the trees,

branches and leaves dancing

in the passing breeze.

I have a lot of work to do

I have some place to be

But some how this hammock

Has a hold of me!!

Hello All

My name is Louana however I go by Lou for simplicity. I live in the PNW. I have two adult children, a wonderful daughter- in-law, and two beautiful granddaughters. I have been married to my second husband for 4 years. I left the workforce in October 2019 to help my husband through some depression he was going through. He lost a son, his Father and his sister (his only sibling) within a 5 year span. His Mother died when he was in his late Twenties. So he was feeling alone and because I was at work not at home he felt like I didn’t care. Anyway he is doing much better now. I have been writing poetry for years. I believe in the power of words. I haven’t published anything yet however I have wrote personalized poems for people to give as gifts, read at weddings, at funerals, or just because. I am excited for this adventure and it is my first. I have been trying my hand at writing different types of poems and having fun with it.
looking forward to reading all your wonderful work also:)
