SETTING MY SIGHTS ON SEEING
~ July 29, 1981 ~
From a small Iowa farmhouse
I watched, with the entire world,
as princess pageantry
played out on my TV screen.
The walls of that living room
seemed to be non-existent
as borders and oceans
were removed, and I traveled
to England…for the first time.

As I have embarked on this journey of writing poetry, I find myself hearing others’ words just a bit differently than I had before. Words in songs, the Sunday sermon, speeches, and even cartoon shorts shown before a movie.
I’ve decided to start a new page on my blog…a place to capture those words or phrases that strike me in such a way that I think, “I wish I’d said that.” I’ve heard several already that I’ll have to try to remember. Meanwhile, my first one will be easy. It was from the cartoon short shown before the movie today.
Stop by that page–you’ll find a tab, above. It will be a page that I will keep adding to, so stop by now and then to see what’s new!
