I have returned to Canada after 22 years in Tanzania. Now living on Lake Memphremagog in a rustic hunting lodge with husband. During these trying times, I am happy to reflect and make sense of my huckleberry life story.

a gratitude poem
"my wondrous life" by judester
My North star so bright
a cool summer breeze,
The feisty cheerleader
of a winning team.

Home fires glow
leading me home.
Sweet angels guide me
when I travel alone.

Thanks for the wisdom
with love interweaved.
For times when I doubted
yet you still believed.

Thanks to my mother
I praise her today.
For my wondrous life
and her motherly ways.


Writing Prompt
Poem, any style, expressing gratitude for one who made a difference in your life.

Contest Winner

Author Notes
I was going to post another picture of my mom, but don't want her to get too starry eyed haha. This is my log cabin interior in Vermont. Everything is repurposed from various renovation jobs. The endwalls are from a 100 year old barn and my maple floor I found stacked up in an old barn. Just sanded it last summer.
My mom and I spent many wonderful years here playing pioneer. She made the stained glass windows in the loft and so much more.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
