Chapter 11 of the book Tribute to JoanE
Remembering a great friend.
"Bon Voyage, JoanE" by amada

She traveled a lifetime; her lines soared in the air, land, and sea.

She wrote of oceans, mountains, meadows;

and now she is cruising that infinite heaven.

Oh what beautiful descriptions she could write.

In the past, reading her lines, I traveled with her,

and, looking out my window, breathing in the wide space,

I started seeing what she was seeing…

the beauty of her words tumbled through my mind,

like a sweet breath from a dreamland.

Holding my breath, I heard the roar of her pen.

Now, free of pain, she will travel for an eternity.

The book continues with A Truly Fine Lady. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Author Notes
JoanE was one of my first fans, many years ago. She was the first one to congratulate me when I posted, even if it was two simple lines. Her lovely remarks made me feel as if I had arrived: I was a poet!
