Northern Swap

Flip flops for slippers

Swimsuits for fleece

Charcoal for salt

Blonde for brunette

Sunshine for candlelight

Fireworks for Christmas lights

Open windows for crackling fires

BBQ for casseroles

Playgrounds for trampolines

Speed for caution

Noise for serenity

Summer’s memories stored

Winter awaits

Myth, A Poem for National Poetry Writing Month

Because it is National Poetry Writing Month I thought I would craft a poem for the first time in over 30 years.  That is my disclaimer in case you were expecting something spectacular.

Myth

Ugly is beautiful

Intelligence is common

Obesity is comfortable

Cowardice is safe

Honesty is a virtue

Dancing woman

I am the woman by Kathy Elliot

A fellow blogger who writes an exquisite blog about Rome sent me the following poem.  Reading it reminded me of how powerful I am, how immeasurably magnificent all women are.  I hope it does the same for you.

I am the woman –  By Kathy Elliot

I am the woman who is unstoppable
I am the woman
Whose dreams are immeasurable
I am the woman
Of a different breed, unbelievable
I am the woman
Of all times, incredible
I am a woman
With passion and purpose, unspeakable
I am the woman
Who decides where I should fall
In this universe, unpredictable
I am the woman
Who refuse to lessen my dreams
To meet man’s expectation, inconceivable
I am a woman
Of greatness and this greatness
Should never be compromise, remarkable
I am that GREAT WOMAN.

Lost in Town is not a typical travel blog, but rather an online holiday due to the writer’s use of language and beautiful photos.  I encourage you to visit Rome at: http://lostintown.wordpress.com/
